Paige trying mutton briyani, chicken murtabak, and bandung on her first night.
Recently, a friend from Canada visited Singapore for the first time. She asked us to bring her on a hawker food trial. We obliged. Our first overseas Hawker Hunters ‘customer’.
She visited coffee shops and hawker centres and sampled 12 dishes & 5 drinks in her first 24 hours – chicken murtabak, mutton briyani, chicken rice, char siew & roast pork, white & black carrot cake, yong tau foo, lobster seafood soup, wanton noodles, chendol, char kway teow, braised pork buns, fish hor fun (sum lo), bandung, milo dinosaur, teh tarik, bua long long juice, sugar cane with lemon.
Other dishes she tried during the rest of her stay included – kaya toast and soft boiled eggs, pig’s trotters bee hoon, bak chor mee, horlicks, salted egg yolk fish skin and chips, fish maw soup, french beans fried with minced chilli shrimp, chee cheong fun.
Her absolute favourite was the pig’s trotters bee hoon at Tong Ah Eating House (35 Keong Saik Rd, Singapore 089142).
