Famous hawker stalls with delivery island-wide
The recent Circuit Breaker measures have resulted in numerous lifestyle changes. While some have decided to take out food from the nearby coffee shop, others prefer to whip up their own dishes at home. But, there’s no need to relegate yourself to that last packet of instant noodles. There are plenty of famous hawker stalls with delivery services. There’s no need to queue patiently for their tasty creations, and the best part is you’ll be able to enjoy it in the comfort of your own home. Here are 20 famous hawker stalls with delivery services island-wide!
Roast meats/chicken rice
1. Jin Ji Braised Duck
Jin Ji Braised Duck is helmed by second-generation hawker, Melvin Chew, who also started the Hawkers United – Dabao 2020 Facebook group. It’s an excellent resource for restaurateurs and hawkers to advertise their food. We’re huge fans of Melvin’s Bento Combo Jumbo Set ($10.20) that comes with sweet daikon slices, braised duck, offal, pork belly, pickled vegetables, and a runny soft-boiled egg. The flavours here seem to combine both traditional and a slight tinge of Japanese, making it a real treat for the senses. Take note that there’s a minimum order of $60, and a delivery fee of $6. Orders can be made on Jin Ji Braised Duck’s Oddle page.
