$2 Hawker Food Collage

It is not easy to find incredibly cheap food in Singapore these days and it’s a pity that the bak chor mee stall you used to patronise is not as cheap as it used to be. Fortunately, there are still hawker stalls that offer cheap and good full meals for S$2 or less. If you are looking for a meal that costs no more than S$2, this list is for you.
