This June, the Tiger Street Food returns with 3 new hawker stalls to bring an even wider range of hawker food to satisfy our palates. Read on and find out what these new stalls have to offer.
Hakka Tofu Bowls by Ah Lock Tofu
The Hakka Tofu Bowl might appear dull, but hey it’s certainly not a “plain jane”. The dish is the brainchild of Mr Lee Lock Teng and is a fusion of his grandma’s decades-old Hakka yong tau foo recipe, Hakka thunder tea rice and the Japanese donburi. In his creation, minced pork belly is stuffed in the tofu and taupok, then fried and served with Japanese short –grain rice. Sweetleaf and long beans (2 of the 7 vegetables in thunder tea) along with soybean sauce were then topped on the warm rice to complete the dish.

Hor Fun by Tang Kay Kee Fish Head Bee Hoon
Since 1964, the humble stall has been making waves amongst the patrons of Hong Lim Food Centre with its delicious zi char dishes. Despite that, the stall owners did not rest on their laurels, and went ahead to give the classic hor fun an innovative spin! If you’re expecting to see the usual liver slices and prawns, then sorry! Instead, you will get a bowl of piping hot hor fun topped with stir-fried pork slices, fish slices, battered enoki and perfect sous-vide egg cooked to 63 degrees. Don’t say we did not warn you; the enoki is highly addictive!

Braised Duck Bento by Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck & Kway Teow
You might hear of chicken rice balls and probably eaten it, but how about duck rice balls? After serving the classic Teochew braised duck for over 30 years, the stall decided to give the dish a facelift by coming up with the Duck Rice Bento. We say the bento is not only a feast to our eyes but our camera too with its beautiful presentation of yam rice balls (separated by braised radish slices), tender braised duck meat, offals, pickled vegetables and runny lava eggs. Gosh, we’re already salivating while typing this.
