Singapore's all about hawker stalls

You can’t say you’ve experienced life in Singapore unless you’ve been to a hawker stall or two. But if you thought hawker food only dished out local fare, think again. Here are 9 trendy hawker stalls – dishing out gourmet twists in coffee shop look-alikes! And all at hawker friendly prices.



Hearty Mexican grub at street prices. The simple menu of the small homemade soft tacos with a choice of chicken, beef, prawn and battered dory fish. Try the signature Carne Asada Grilled Steak Taco and slather with homemade guacamole and sour cream. Delicious!

A Noodle Story – for Singapore-style Ramen

Hailed as the first and only Singapore-style ramen in town, this hawker stall was also recently awarded the “Best Hawker 2015” award for their super springy noodles tossed in a special aromatic dressing accompanied with Hong Kong-style wontons, soy-flavoured hot spring egg, meltingly-tender chasu and a crispy potato-wrapped prawn. And at only half the price of normal ramen around town ($5.50).
