Back in March 2019, Singapore nominated the hawker culture in Singapore on to the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and a few days before Christmas it was inscribed in the UNESCO list.
The hawker center serve as community dining spaces for all. There are more than 100 hawker centres and some 6,000 hawkers who serve about 150 to 200 affordable meals daily. More than 80 percent of the population visit hawker centres at least once a week.
The hawker centers are truly a melting pot of people where every social economic categories mix and eat next to each other. We love our little local one right next to our condominium. And if you fancy a Michelin Star dining experience you can even do it there. Can lah!
