Singapore Hawker Food

Hawker food!

It’s definitely one of those things overseas Singaporeans miss.


Here’s my routine whenever I’m back in Singapore:

Step one – in the morning, I’d dutifully go to the wet market, determined to buy some fresh vegetables.

I’m determined to buy those fresh fish.

I really want those fresh meat, yes. Good idea.

And then I’ll buy the newspapers.

Step two: I’ll soak in the atmosphere.

I’ll then look at all those hawker food.

Yummy pancake! You could have either coconut husk, red bean paste or peanut as your filling.

I usually buy one of each. It’s yummy breakfast/tea time/snack food.

Rojak! That’s a fruit and veg salad concoction that manages to be sweet, sour and spicy all at the same time.

A close-up of the rojak stall. It’s a good alternative snack.

You can see that at this point, my health diet plan starts to break down.

Good breakfast food!

I actually look forward to waiting in front of a stall for my food to be ready – it allows me to loiter and wait for the perfect moment.

Unhealthy thick noodle breakfast with sausages, chicken wings, potato wedges, etc etc.

Noodle stall – we’re still at breakfast.

That’s the fried butterfly, you tiao, salted bun, etc etc stall.

Good for brunch.

We’re all waiting with our smartphones these days.

Chicken rice! Good lunch idea.

That’s where I buy my century egg porridge. Lunch.

Killer prawn noodles! Dinner. That’s when I reach for my cholesterol pills.

That’s just rice with a choice of dishes … the sweet and sour pork is usually the best of the lot. Dinner time!

Yong tau foo! Where you choose your ingredients and noodles. I usually go for the dry thick yellow noodle with lots of sweet sauce.

(Again, my cholesterol pills would definitely come in handy.)

The thing about yong tau foo – no matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong.

Ingredients for a wonderful dinner.

There’s no such thing as the wrong kind of food…

Fish ball noodles! Good supper food.

Minced pork noodles! Is it tomorrow’s breakfast yet?

Curry puffs! Goreng pisang (fried bananas)! Good night-time snack.


Oh and I’ll never forget to have some fruits.

Fruits are important for a healthy diet…
