A Taste of History is an important and nostalgic documentary that traces the history of dialect groups in Singapore through culinary history and neighborhoods. The first episode on screen, is on Katong.
This documentary important in times of rapid development, the cinematography is first class. The way the camera zooms in on an uncle frying hokkien mee: you see strands of lard-coated noodle somersaulting in the wok, absorbing the essence. Thank you for preserving a part of Singapore’s heritage.
There’s also wrapping popiah contest and the queen of the popiah is Yahui , she do the best popiah and win over the other artiste 🙂
