Whenever we think of hawker stalls, our favourite visuals of Chicken Rice, Hokkien Mee or even Char Kway Teow would appear right in our minds. Apart from all these coveted local gems you can find, hipster stalls have been seen emerging into the local hawker scene to bring you delectable cuisines at pocket-friendly prices you will never find on restaurant menus.
Take a look at these 8 hipster hawker stalls in Singapore and you might find something you fancy for a change!
A Noodle Story
This stall would be no stranger to the working crowd at Amoy Food Centre. Serving up bowls of noodles akin to wanton noodles, the folks at A Noodle Story have upped the ante to garnish them noodles with ingredients like Hot Spring Egg, Crispy Potato Wrapped Prawns, Hong Kong Wantons and Cha Su! Prices are from S$5-S$7!

By The Fire
By the former chef of Keystone (a mod European restaurant), By The Fire offers a wholesome range of Italian cuisine prepared using Asian ingredients. Unlike most places that serve grilled meat, the chef only uses bintochan charcoals to retain the flavours of their meat better!

For those who stay in the West, you’re in luck!
