 Bee Heng Popiah & Satay When it comes to popiah, Bee Heng Popiah & Satay claims to be one of the oldest stalls in Singapore, still using a traditional recipe that’s been passed down the generations since the 1930s. Because they’re at Newton Food Centre, one of the most expensive places for hawker food in Singapore, two rolls (the minimum order) goes for $4.40.

I’ll be honest. After all these years, I still haven’t quite finessed the technique for keeping the popiah intact from plate to mouth; it always falls apart into a pathetic mess. In my defence,Bee Heng Popiah & Satay's wrap was pretty loose though; I probably should’ve just used my hands.

Bee Heng Popiah & Satay's fillings were quite well-balanced, so you taste a bit of everything. Turnip, of course, bean sprouts, hard boiled egg, tiny pieces of prawns, and, to my surprise, crispy fish bits, which I initially mistook for pork lard  As a snack, it’s quite enjoyable - you get sweet, umami, salty and spicy all in one bite!

As I watched the rolls take shape in the auntie’s deft, experienced hands, I couldn’t help but think of the years that have gone into this deceptively simple dish. It’s almost like eating a piece of history.
