Hock Leng Satay Beehoon: The last Lok Lok Hawker
Satay blanch blanch, that’s what it’s really called when translated to English. But I think I will stick to the traditional name Satay Lok Lok, and this is known to be the last such hawker stall in Singapore and I  have to give it due respect for the pleasure this...MORE

Salt of our Hawker Centre
This is the second Gen Y hawker in the same food centre that, when asked, responded with a “because our food heritage is worth protecting” in as many years. The other was the Roast Paradise roast meat stall. Some have not much of an inkling why they are boarded up...MORE
