This year’s HeritageFest will focus on Singapore’s hawker history

With Singapore’s hawker culture in the spotlight, there is no better time to get acquainted with the history of our favorite local dishes. At Singapore HeritageFest 2016, which runs from Apr 29 to May 15, the National Museum of Singapore will be putting up an exhibition recreating food stalls from the ’60s. 

Organized by the National Heritage Board, the event also features other exhibitions and activities exploring Singapore’s history and culture in neighborhoods around the island. A Taste of Heritage (Apr 29-30, 6-10pm) reenacts scenes of hawkers selling noodles and other local dishes from push carts that were once commonplace at the National Museum in the 1960s. There are also guided tours of Singapore’s famous food precincts such as Changi Road and Kampong Glam.
