Everybody loves food and it is the one thing that undoubtedly brings everyone together. Hawker markets are the perfect places for families and a paradise for all foodies. This is the place where all street food carts gather to serve authentic local street food. All the food carts were taken off the streets and put together in one area to promote tourism and also make it more hygienic. Stalls are given grades ranging from ‘A’ to ‘D’, ‘A’ being the best and ‘D’ being the worst. An unusual trend that is followed by everyone here is chopping, which basically means throwing any object on a table to claim it. Better be quick if you want to enjoy your meal on a table!
