It runs in our blood, it beats in our hearts. Hawker culture is an undeniable part of being a Singaporean, and as much as we hate the heat, the oil and the crowd sometimes, we all love some hot and delicious hawker food. What once was so close to us, though, has become farther than ever before – it will be until after May 4 that we finally get to enjoy some old school fried chicken wings or peppery bak kut teh on the spot.
While you can always try your hand at whipping up some of your favourite hawker delights at home, enjoying the actual thing during Circuit Breaker season isn’t completely out of the question. It’s still business as usual at many hawker and coffeeshop stalls, and all it takes is a call or a few taps on the phone to have chicken rice, bak kut teh or nasi lemak delivered right to your doorstep. Alternatively, you can also simply takeaway. Just remember to wear a mask and follow these safety tips!
