Here are all 8 episodes of the 8 Days Eat TV Series which I filmed with the lovely Belinda Lee. I wanted to bring an extra-dimension to a typical food show by discussing certain things like how to choose crabs and durians and also some historical tit bits of Singapore food. I also wanted to feature young hawkerpreneurs who are the future of Singapore hawker food. So far, many people have told me that they have found it a refreshing take on the typical food show!
Hope you enjoy watching it!
