Food-loving couple, Keropokman and Kopikosonggirl, who are bloggers, took over HungryGoWhere's Instagram account for a day to hunt down hawkers who make their food and its ingredients from scratch. None of that frozen, store-bought stuff for these discerning hawkers.
Armed with our readers' recommendations, they went hot-on-the-heels of the best hawker stalls that fit the bill. Fron hand-pulled noodles to ice-cream made on site. Take a look at the rest of the gallery for the couple's eating adventures.
