Rice, baked beans, potato cubes, luncheon meat, fishcake, battered fish, onion and carrot strips, curry gravy — all for $3.50! And the best part? It is sensationally scrumptious. Talk about cheap and good! However, at the rate tradition and heritage are being callously displaced in favor of commercialism and gentrification, authentic Singaporean hawkers and their timeless culinary magic will cease to exist sooner rather than later. Fuck that shit. Call me schmaltzy or label me obstinate, but I’ll be clinging on to every last dollop of tradition left in Singapore.
