Patronizing hawker centers and coffee shops has been my favorite past-time since the university days. Aside from my usual cafe-hoppings, I do love my local delights as much as the rest too! I did notice the trend that there are more and more young hawkers around these days and how they evolve and make hawkers more hipster. From bringing interesting (unconventional) hawker foods into the scene to changing something traditional/old school into something hippy like for example converting a coffeeshop into hipster chill out coffee shops (2 Face Pizza and Taproom at Eng Hoon Street & Salute Coffeeshop at Bukit Merah Lane). Seriously, i didn’t expect this to happen one day.
Anyway these young hawker heroes definitely deserves some support from us for the courage to start a food business, giving up their current comfortable jobs and bringing good vibes into Singapore’s F&B industry. So let me share with you some of my favorites among them all.
