Most of the stalls are run by members within the family. Some may not be run by the most famous member of the family but at least it's managed by a sibling or sibling's children. If you want hawkers to expand their business and they have family members willing to do it, it's good for us and the food heritage of Singapore. There are good stalls, good cooks at Singapore Food Trail as well as some not so good ones. It's the smart and true foodie who knows what to eat there, when or cooked by who. If you only want food by the original most famous hawkers, then stick with them. But to the rest of us, we are quite happy with food that's great, excellent, very good, good and decent.
Give the stall owners a break. A empty lot does not look good next the the SG Flyer! It's meant for transient tourist so atmosphere is more important than taste. Most tourist wont know the difference between excellent, good, and fair, so as long as it's palatable, don't knock it. They don't have to meet "repeat business" standards or pricing. It is what it is. Yes Wisma and Raffles City Food courts are better but they cater to the local lunch crowds and repeat business is everything. Our fellow Singaporeans at Food Trail need to make a living too. You have a choice to go elsewhere to eat so do.
HI foodie123, I agree with DoctorFood.
Actually majority of the stall is not the original owner.
E.g tai wah pork noodles is run by youngest bro 2children
I think the enviroment is good.
I like the open air road side dining & heritage corner which is not easily available in S'pore.
It bring back memories for mum & dad at affordable price.
But overall the food still can eat if you crave for it and doesnt have high standard
Amongst the few dishes that we tried, Satay Bee Hoon seemed to suit our taste buds best. Comes in a generous portion of peanut gravy with 2 prawns, slices of liver and pork, strands of kang kong. Hokkien Mee lacked flavor and the "wok" taste. BBQ wings were a disappointment as it seemed to be heated up from microwave? Ice ball was average but expensive at $2.50. Of course, fried oyster was the most popular, with its constant long q that we decided to forego. No q for fishball noodle, nasi lemak or Tai Wah noodles. It was about 730pm on Wed evening, with average crowd. Prata was not represented?
