Get Good Hawker Grub For $2 And $3 Beers At The Tiger Street Food Pop-Up This Friday

Growing up, I used to dislike going to hawker centres. It was always stuffy and unhygienic and the tables were gross. But I eventually found my appreciation for the humble hawker centre. Hawker food is cheap, unpretentious and speaks for itself.

While being a hawker is a dying trade in Singapore, there are a few who willingly embrace the trade and are doing well. These new generation hawkers are revamping hawker food and bringing new dishes to the masses.

Last year, the first Tiger Street Festival was held, for young hawkers to showcase their food and creations and the proceeds went to the Tiger Street Food Support Fund.

This year, the Tiger Street Festival returns for their 2nd edition.

Tiger Street Food Festival

On 11 May 2018, there’s the Tiger Street Food Pop-up, happening at Prinsep Street, a sneak preview for what’s to come in the Tiger Street Food Festival.

This pop-up will feature 6 out of the 11 young hawker lineup.

Participating hawkers include K.R. Banana Leaf Masala Chicken Nasi Lemak, Fishboss, Prawn Village, Ah Tan Wings, FORUM Hainanese Congee, and Snuggrubs.

We have our eyes on Fishboss, Ah Tan Wings, and Prawn Village.

Fishboss is known for their handmade fishball noodles, which are a hometown favourite of the owner in Yong Peng, Malaysia.

Their handmade fishballs are soft and don’t have a lingering fishy smell, which is a sign that the fishballs are fresh.

That’s not all, their noodles are served with dark sauce, minced meat and spring onions which is always welcome because nobody likes plain noodles.

Ah Tan Wings made waves with their perfected Prawn Paste Fried Chicken, also known as Har Cheong Gai.

You might have seen the insane queues they generated at previous events such as the Kranji Countryside Farmer’s Market and the Civic District Festival last year.

If you’re a fan of Prawn Paste Fried Chicken, you cannot miss Ah Tan Wings.

If Prawn Noodles are what you seek, then Prawn Village is where you should be. While it’s not an actual village, it is a stall in Golden Mile Food Centre that serves up original Penang fresh Prawn Noodles.

The recipe for the Prawn Noodles was taught to owner Anson Loo by a Penang hawker. He simmers pork ribs and chicken bones for hours to create a flavourful broth. The prawns used are big and fresh and are cooked only upon order.

If that doesn’t already sound good to you, we don’t know what will.

Happening from 5pm to 10.30pm, the Tiger Street Pop-up will also see local singer Gail Belmonte entertain the crowd with her soulful sound.

While admission is free, vouchers for food and beer are priced at $10 each. Beer will cost between $3 to $6 and each hawker dish will be sold at $2.

Remember to bring cash because card transactions will not be available.

If you miss the Tiger Street Pop-up tomorrow, don’t worry. There will be the Tiger Street Food Festival happening on 8 June 2018 at Tan Quee Lan street.

Do keep checking their website for more updates on the Tiger Street Food Festival.
