My first hawker food video

When I was first told by the video director to do a shoot at Satay By The Bay, I was thrilled because this is my first time filming for a hawker centre instead of the usual restaurant. As a Singaporean, I love hawker food, it is an essential element of the local food culture. The best thing is that I grew up eating hawker food, it has now become a part of me. I would be able to share with you the history and top choices of the finest local delights at the back of my hand!

Hokkien Mee
Hokkien Mee
Originally created in world war II and has now became a must-have in our traditional local cusine. The crucial part of this dish is the sauce, this stall has done particularly well using simmered prawn heads and dried fish creating a robust flavor when stir-fried with the noodles. Not forgetting the pork lard which enhances the overall fragrance!


Coin Prata
One of my childhood favourites, designed to be smaller than the usual, the crispy coin prata is not too oily and so buttery fragrant! It is exceptionally delicious when you dip it with a decent amount of curry. Using fish instead of chicken curry, the prata absorbs the curry like a sponge. You can’t get enough of just one.

Stingray
I was hooked to eating this almost every night when I had my frequent visits to Malaysia. The fish is first pan-fried, drizzled with their special sauce and covered immediately till the fragrance is locked into the flesh before opening up. The flavor is entirely integrated and the combination of the chilli paste taste superb. It goes excellent with cold beer.
