FOLLOWING THE SINGAPORE FOOD TRAIL

Singapore Food Trail is a unique 1960s themed food street in Singapore and an exciting dining attraction, located in the heart of the iconic Singapore Flyer, which will bring back fond memories of the good old days. Set against the nostalgic backdrop of the swinging 60s, the Singapore Food Trail will transport visitors back to a bygone era, to a time when people savoured popular local delights along the roadside. To bring back the nostalgic charm of olden Singapore, the Singapore Food Trail features specially-customised pushcarts and makeshift stalls along a tarmac road.

The stalls at the Singapore Food Trail are run by the original owners or second or third-generation hawkers who carry on the family business while preserving the original taste of their dishes. The oldest stall is High Street Tai Wah Pork Noodle which started in 1939 that was originally located along the Singapore River. It is currently run by second-gen hawker, Mr Tang, with over 45 years of experience and his two sons who ensure that the original taste of their family’s Teochew minced meat noodles is preserved through the generations.

As per my Tweet, this stall that sell the all-time favourite Hainanese Chicken Rice had the shortest queue. I was exhausted and not feeling particularly adventurous or patient for that matter to wait in long queue.

In spite of the excessive long queue, our determined guide got us to sample this interesting combination platter of Chinese Prawn Biscuits, Crunchy Chestnut Cake and Orange Tako.

$500,000 invested solely into 1960s décor. At the Singapore Food Trail, the authentic 1960s décor and furnishings take centre stage. With strict attention to detail, all the furniture and props such as tables, chairs, street signs, TV sets, doors, signboards and even cutlery are reminiscent of the 1960s. To ensure authenticity, representatives from Select Group searched for 1960s curios in Singapore and neighbouring countries in the region over six months. “It was not easy searching for such old items but we were able to find people who still held on to their old wares. One of the prized finds displayed at the Singapore Food Trail is an original 1960s jukebox, costing nearly $10,000 that still works.

  1. I think only Bruneians like you who think that’s an insane crowd. For the locals, that’s just a typical day in Singapore! … but I’ll take the no-queue-no-stress Seria’s Nam Wah Hainanese chicken rice over this any day too.

    1. Crowds work well when I need a convincing photo story about how popular a place is. In Brunei, this is often difficult to accomplish with the exception of a grand opening day and the next few “hot” days that usually follow. With a few million hungry people in Singapore, I can always count on them to show up on any “typical day”. If only I wasn’t hungry and exhausted, I could have shot more to capture more than just the ambience — needed to recharge for the rest of the evening’s programme.

    1. And I believe you’re right. Good to have a local Singaporean here. I went by the only address provided in the Media Release footer. Come to think of it, Senoko Crescent may be their office location. Thanks again for the heads-up.
