COVID-19 VS Hawkers

Between the Lines

We step into the lives of a handful of Singapore hawkers over 9 months of 2020 in the second season of this popular series. Oyster Omelette with oysters from Jeju, South Korea. A 90-year old recipe for sausages. Steaming Nasi Briyani with chicken or mutton. Basin Dish that requires 24 hours of prep and only eaten once a year. Crispy and light Appam, Singapore style. Charcoal Bun Barbeque Burgers. 

Father-son, husband-wife, friends, grandaunt-niece hawkers of different generations reveal the loving recipes behind these dishes. Get a glimpse first-hand of their camaraderie, their quarrels and through it all, their unwavering support for each other. They also share the legacies and obstacles faced while trying to sustain their businesses. 
And when COVID-19 hits, we track the hawkers’ shock, dismay and determination to weather through this storm. But initial optimism turns to worry, and fear as the months drag out. Will all of them be able to make it or will some end up folding for good?
