Celebrating Singapore’s Hawker Heritage with Ultimate Hawker Fest 2014 [终极街头美食节]

We're serious when we say it's a food paradise here in Singapore. Do you concur? Come to Singapore Hawker Heritage with an empty stomach - that's the best advice I can give. With the best of Singapore’s hawker culture demonstrated in three food zones namely Ultimate Original Recipe [食代相传], Ultimate Pursuit of Happiness [食膳为心] and Ultimate Ingredients [食材科举], you can be sure to indulge lovingly in our island's authentic tastes in its full glory. Warning: This post contains heart-stopping, enticing food photos.

Supported by TOUCH Community Services, this highly anticipated hawker fest will return for the third consecutive year following its success, with a unique focus on celebrating Singapore’s hawker heritage, as part of Singapore’s Jubilee (SG50) celebrations.

Sweat and hard work goes into building our delicious Singapore food culture, especially in the heat of hawker centres. But you know this is where you will find real gems and flavours that locals miss so much when they go overseas. How many people rush down to get their good ol' carrot cake when they touched down from a long overseas holiday? The Ultimate Original Recipe celebrates the heritage of our pioneer generation hawkers through stalls helmed by chefs from the second, third and fourth generations of famous hawkers.


This menu includes some of the amazing selections you can find at the Ultimate Hawker Fest.

It is heartening to know that our hawker culture is very much alive with younger people extending the legacy! Armed with his grandmother’s recipe, Douglas Ng, 23, of Fishball Story arrives at his stall at 4am every morning to make all his fishballs from scratch using only pure yellowtail fish meat and no flour. Douglas has a passion in preserving the hawker heritage and serving food with heart. 
“It’s the feel of the wobbly fish paste, how I need to adjust to the supply each day as the fishes are not all the same every day and the way I need to beat and slap the paste, season and soak it before I can boil them - all very satisfying, I cannot explain why,”
The Ultimate Pursuit of Happiness celebrates the enterprising spirit of these budding chefs and hawkers by featuring individuals who left their jobs in other sectors to pursue their passion for food in the hawker industry.
