Supporting our Hawker Heroes: Part 2!


3.7 min read

GetGoers, we’d like to thank you all for participating in our mission to #GetOurHawkersGoing! We’re left with one more week till dine-in restrictions are lifted, but as this video from CNA explains, the struggles of our hawkers are far from over.

Hawkers do not benefit from going digital due to the high commission and onboarding fees and the lack of manpower to handle an additional source of orders from delivery platforms. This is why we still need to do our part by supporting our local hawkers! 💪

Here are some of our personal favourite hawker stalls we’ve discovered during our pursuit of helping our hawkers (with some GetGoer contributions, of course!) 😄

1. GetGoer Recommendation: Rojak, Popiah & Cockle
— recommended by Matthew Tay

This Michelin-recommended stall at Maxwell Food Centre boasts a solid plate of rojak, delicious popiah and fresh cockles — a power combo for a satisfying dinner with your family! 🥰

⏰ Opening Hours: 12pm – 10pm, closed on Wednesdays
📍 1 Kadayanallur St, #01-56 Maxwell Road Food Centre, Singapore 069184

2. GetGoer Recommendation: J2 Famous Crispy Curry Puff
— recommended by Matthew Tay

As the name suggests, this stall is famous for their crispy curry puffs. They’re made fresh daily and are perfect for a late afternoon snack! Treat yourself to these light yet flavour-packed curry puffs, available at Amoy Street Food Centre. 😋

⏰ Opening Hours: 8am – 4pm, closed on Sundays and Public Holidays
📍 7 Maxwell Rd, #01-21, Amoy Street Food Centre

3. GetGoer Recommendation: Shinjitsu Ramen
— recommended by @mrsraight

Ramen is my favorite food, so I may be biased here, but you HAVE to try Shinjitsu’s signature Tonkotsu Special Ramen! The broth is savoury and hearty, and you’ll get a generous portion of noodles and toppings at a very affordable price. If you’re looking for a cheap but good ramen fix, this is it! 🍜

⏰ Opening Hours: 10am – 8.30pm, closed on Tuesdays
📍 125 Lor 1 Toa Payoh, Singapore 310125

4. GetGoer Recommendation: Tiong Bahru Yong Tau Hu
— recommended by Michael

Located in the heart of Tiong Bahru, this stall serves a great selection of yong tau foo, bak chor mee, ngoh hiang and other local favorites. Their prices are really easy on the wallet too! 😉

⏰ Opening Hours: 7am – 4.30pm, daily
📍 56 Eng Hoon St, #01-46, Singapore 160056

5. Chee Cheong Fun Club

Ever heard of curry chee cheong fun? Apparently, this KL-style dim sum dish is all the rage at Chee Cheong Fun Club! Who can resist silky, handmade rice rolls covered in a thick, luscious curry sauce? Looking at the picture is enough to make my mouth water. 🤤

⏰ Opening Hours: 7.30am – 3pm (Tues – Sat ), 8.30am – 3pm (Sun), closed on Mondays
📍 #01-38 Maxwell Food Centre
