UNESCO Hawker Food Tour: “Boiled and Braised” in Singapore

This is part 1 of a 3-part tour series, of eating your way through Singapore’s Hawker Culture, which was inscribed on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

What makes up Chinese hawker food in Singapore? Hokkien, Cantonese, Hainanese, Teochew, Hakka, each of these communities can claim to have brought the best of Chinese cuisine to Singapore. Yet what we consider to be local Chinese food has been influenced, reinterpreted and adapted to local flavours. Many of these dishes today are in fact unrecognisable from their motherland.

Get into the bellies of the Chinese in Singapore and explore our world of hawker cuisine. Explore what the UNESCO intangible cultural heritage represents, and discover new insights to local dishes that we have come to love. This immersive experience is a great bonding activity for foodies, families and friends, and makes a unique date idea too.
