After a full day of work, I went to dinner with a co-worker. We went to a nearby Hawker Centre, sort of like a Singaporean Food Court, but significantly larger with more variety. This one was different from the usual.
Industrial, covered with art graffiti, and built of shipping containers, it was more hip than traditional. With food from around the world, including American burgers, and even barbecue, it seemed more accessible for Western tastes than the standard Hawker Centres. Of course, you can get the local fare too. Unfortunately, it was late, and many of the places were already closed.
I wasn’t getting a burger or barbecue all the way in Singapore, but I did settle for some Thai. My co-worked got some fish and chips. Days later, I would go to more traditional places, but for the first night, I settled down in a modern and dare I say hipster hangout.
