Singaporean Hawker Food Gets Turned into Works of Art

Singaporean hawker food like you’ve never seen before.

Instagram account @dabaogram turns local hawker food into mouth-watering, fine dining dishes.

Using only da bao (meaning “takeaway”) food from hawker centers and coffee shops, @dabaogram turns humble local dishes into five-star culinary masterpieces.

The brainchild of local foodies Daren, Josh, Brian, and a mystery chef who goes by the name “Vanesse”, Dabaogram seriously raises the bar where it comes to local food photography.

Who knew fishball noodles, economical rice, and wanton noodles could look this good?

Check out some of its mouth-watering posts above, or visit its Instagram page for more.
