Tastemakers Guide To Best Young Hawkers in Singapore
Burpple Guides, Hawker Fare Tastemakers Guide To Best Young Hawkers in Singapore A hawker's life is far from glamorous, but the long hours of hard work certainly hasn't stopped new generation hawkers from doing their part in preserving family legacies and introducing new iterations of hawker food. For this guide, our Tastemakers trawled the island in search of stalls run and fronted by these young hawkers, all of which serve up some laud-worthy, delicious food. As you trace our Tastemakers' culinary journey, bring an appetite but also a smile and perhaps a kind word or two — these passionate hawkers who buck the norm of cushy office jobs certainly deserve our support!

Burpple Guides, Newly Opened New Restaurants, Cafes and Bars in Singapore: August 2017 August is shaping out to be quite the month for newly opened Japanese joints, from tasty Japanese bar bites and sake in Waterloo to famed Pablo cheese tarts in Wisma Atria and a cosy sushi omakase joint in Jalan Besar. On top of that, we're also excited about this new plant-based dessert cafe in Jurong (vegan ice cream, anyone?) and smoking good Penang plates in Katong. We can't think of a more delicious way to spring into August. We hope you've got your appetites ready!

For Affordable Locally-Inspired Burgers

Ryan and Clare, the young couple behind this burger stall in Beauty World Food Centre, are motivated by their goal to serve unique and quality burgers at affordable prices. The fact that neither has had formal culinary training comes as a surprise, for the burgers here are creative and seriously yummy. Their speciality is without a doubt their localised burgers like Crispy Pork Belly Burger ($5.50) and Ayam Buah Keluak Burger ($5). According to Tastemaker Wei Zhi Chiang, the former sees thick chunks of crackling fatty pork belly and crunchy Japanese cucumbers sandwiched between well-toasted fluffy buns, and slicked with sweet and tangy hoisin sauce and English mustard. As for the Ayam Buah Keluak Burger, the patty is made with minced chicken and buah keluak, with a lovely bitterness buah keluak fans will love, while the topping of chap chye (Nonya braised vegetables) is extremely inspired! Top up $1.50 for their Fairy Fries, essentially well-seasoned, hand-cut potato fries. After all, like Tastemaker Wei Zhi so rightly says, what's a burger without fries? And at such affordable prices, you might be tempted to have a second burger. Pro tip: Weekend queues can get ridiculous; visit on a weekday of burger sans mobs.
Avg Price: $5 per person

$8 Set Meal @ Cafe Seventy

Roast beef wholemeal sandwich (double) with regular black tea chai for $8. Pretty worth it for the food quality. Cafe ambience is quite interesting - it's located at the Sports Lifestyle Centre @ Bukit Merah. Good outdoor chill out for small groups.

The tricky part to a good Claypot rice is to control the fire so that the ingredients are cooked perfectly.

A good Claypot rice also requires good flavour and nicely crisp rice at the bottom of the pot. To our surprise, we found a relatively good one at the basement of Centrepoint. Malaysia Chiak serves Penang food and this Claypot rice is worth the mention. Tender Chicken, Salted Fish and the yummy rice crisp. If only they added Lup Cheong to it and it will be perfect!


Basil Sling #Martini: Vodka, St. Germaine, Lemon Juice & Basil Leaf. Bar snacks for nibbles while waiting for the rest of the group to show up. #yummy I #love how their menu describes this drink as 'The Connoisseur' - I don't do average. Haha!

Gyu-katsu And Pork Kushi-katsu Lunch Set

This came to the table rarer than i expected 😳 but then i took great joy in grilling the beefy slivers on the individual hotplates that were provided to my preferred doneness.. Which is hard, given i don't cook steaks much at home :/ all in all, it was a fun little exercise, and the beef was moderately tender though the fried batter overwhelmed any flavour it had. The lunch set made it a better deal by including rice, free-flow cabbage and a panna cotta dessert.
