Oldest hawker stalls in Singapore

Our unique and colourful hawker culture has long been a point of pride for Singaporeans and our national identity, so much so that it was added to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity late last year. Feasting through a kaleidoscope of cuisines and hawker stalls is a national pastime and a stamp of our unique Singaporean identity. If you feel like taking a trip down memory lane to celebrate our multicultural food scene, here are 15 of the oldest hawker stalls we have in Singapore.

1. Bukit Merah View Carrot Cake

Bukit Merah View Carrot Cake is a legendary 70-year-old chai tow kueh stall. It has been around since the 1950s, making it one of the oldest hawker stalls of its kind. The stall uses traditional techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation, including milling the rice flour for their kueh.

Bukit Merah View Carrot Cake offers both black and white versions of their carrot cake. They are sold at either $3, $4, or $5. Each cube of carrot cake is firm yet pillowy, with a nice crisp on the outside. During our visit, we enjoyed the well-balanced sweet and spicy flavour of the black version, while the white rendition boasted a strong wok-hei and smoky aroma.
