This year's Hawker Spotlight is hosted by City Gas in collaboration with the Singapore Tourism Board as part of the iconic Singapore Food Festival.

Hawker Spotlight showcases different hawker centres each year and this edition, it's East Coast Lagoon Food Village!

We got a taste of five characteristically Singaporean dishes which include Curry Fish Head (Eastern Red Seafood #01-37), Popiah (Lagoon Carrot Cake #01-40), Bak Kut Teh (Han Jia Bak Kut Teh #01-42), Char Kway Teow (Choon Hiang #01-46) and Satay (Haron Satay #01-55)! The aforementioned stalls have been placed within the Top 10 for their respected dishes in the City Hawker Food Hunt Awards over the years.

Out of the five nominated stalls, my absolute favourite would be the spicy and savoury fish head curry. The couple who run the stall have been in the business for over 20 years. When asked what makes their curry so good, they cheekily reply, "our secret ingredient".

The Singapore Food Festival runs till the 31st of July! To see what other events are in store, visit www.singaporefoodfestival.com.
