CNA Insider: Ties That Bind: Singapore Hawkers And Those Keeping The Trade Alive | Belly Of A Nation 2 | Part 1/4


November 21,2020

Well worth watching

An Executive Chef of a Chinese fine-dining restaurant who went to jail and paid his dues. A former air steward who unknowingly participated in a Ponzi scheme and chalked up a $200,000 debt. A formidable 75-year old boss of a long-time Tze Char stall and her grand-niece, a gutsy millennial and former cafe worker. Meet some of the colourful characters who show us the secrets behind their famous fare like fried Oyster Omelette, Nasi Briyani and a unique culinary delight that requires 24 hours of preparation—Basin Dish. But all this hard work doesn’t come easy. They let us into their lives and behind the scenes as day-to-day tension and clashes persist. They also share their checkered pasts, and paths to redemption. Food is life, and these are the ties that bind. Welcome to Belly of a Nation.
