Roti prata for breakfast, nasi padang for lunch and Hokkien mee for dinner. We meet, feast and bond over a diverse offering of food dishes, all under one roof. For Singaporeans, Hawker Culture is an integral part of our way of life.
Together with Our Grandfather Story, we curated a series of videos showcasing the overlooked stories of our beloved hawkers, beyond the delicious food they cook.
As GrabFood introduces more Hawker Picks, we hope to bring these meals closer to you.
Good Ol’ Prawn Mee
Some things are best kept simple. Like a good bowl of prawn noodles.

Fancy some Gourmet *Guts*?
The Teochew ‘nuo mi chang’ (glutinous rice intestines) has its lovers and haters. Two things for sure though — the Teochew glutinous rice intestine is a tedious dish to prepare, and definitely not an easy one to find. But here’s one family that has been serving this dish for 63 years.
