Here, you'll get the best of both traditional hawker fare and 'hipster' delights
How do you bring people together in peaceful harmony?
In Singapore, you set up a gastronomy haven for hungry-goers to meet, merrymake and chow down on a mix of traditional and modern cuisines, as exemplified by the latest 770-seater Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre.
The two-storey culinary destination is home to hawkers from all walks of life, where its first floor is lined with 20 stalls serving up traditional hawker fare, while the second, which is playfully called Fareground, is a section for the younger cooks to churn out modern and hipster creations that'll definitely thrill both the young and the old.
Here, we rounded up eight dishes you should try:
2. King Prawn Udon Dry ($12.50), Prawnholic
$12.50 for a single hawker dish? Yikes! But in Prawnholic’s defence, the King Prawn Udon Dry comes packing with a bountiful of seafood ingredients, including homemade prawn balls and two massive prawns, that may justify the price point. The udon, in place of the usual yellow noodles, was springy and did a good job of gelling with the secret brown sauce, which we assume comrpises of the essence of fried pork lard. However, it is the bowl of prawn broth that left a huge impression on us with its potent profile of sweetness and umami!
