Food from your favourite hawker stall
The lockdown has hit hawkers harder than most businesses.
As they increasingly return to work, remember that keto and low-carb options are available. Don’t be shy about asking for a bit of customisation.
The secret is to select the ingredients. Ask for:
- no noodles, rice or bread
- replace with bean sprouts
- extra green vegetables
- fatty meat
- roasted or barbecued (no marinade) rather than fried meats
- no sauce (and ask about ingredients in soups and broths).

Spaghetti bolognese isn’t typically on keto menus. However, the Zoodle Beef Bolognese at Kitchen by Food Rebel is a perfect keto comfort food alternative.
All sorts of low-carb options are available for dining in or delivery at The Living Café. Feel virtuous with refreshing soups or lettuce buns – but the zucchini lasagne provides real comfort!
