The Paya Lebar region is slowly morphing into a business hub. Many companies have started moving into the area and correspondingly shopping malls like Paya Lebar Square have sprung up. Singpost Centre was rebuilt into a destination for services, lifestyle and family entertainment. Here you will find an eatery by the name of Hawkerman.
Hawkerman is by the Tenderfresh Group. Apparently, this Channel 8 actor by the name of Ben Yeo is behind this. Hawkerman houses three popular hawker brands – Tenderfresh, Ah Boy Popiah and Warong Kim’s. The menu is basically, well, hawker food! Prices are rather reasonable and the food selection is really wide.
Well since I did not know what to order, I went for Chapalang.
The Chapalang was really good. I had not much of an idea of what I was eating. Looks like a bowl of yellow rice, poached egg, kimchi, mixed vegetables, bean sprouts and fried chicken but hey it works!
I also had the Ah Boy Popiah which was just about decent. Nothing to rave about though.
The Lucky 2 piece Chicken Plate looked really plain and simple and was again, just decent.
However, the Double Yolk Chicken was good! I am really amused how just throwing on salted egg yolk just makes everything better. Not just at Hawkerman.
Lastly, if you are at Hawkerman, do try their Durian ‘N Jack. It is essentially durian ice cream with jackfruit wrapped in popiah skin. Yes, it sounds absolutely weird but somehow it just tastes awesome!
When I was done I saw this on the wall…
Damn… I should have ordered that…
