Belly of a Nation 2 on CNA

Returning for a second season, Belly of a Nation follows a group of Singapore food hawkers through their gastronomic daily lives and reveal trusted recipes behind their specialties.

Whet your appetite with local favorites such as Oyster Omelette with produce from Jeju, South Korea; a 90-year old recipe for sausages; fragrant chicken, or mutton Nasi Briyani; Basin Dish that requires a day’s prep and enjoyed only once annually; crispy Appam; and Charcoal Bun Barbeque Burgers.

These multi-generational hawkers will provide you a glimpse into their camaraderie and squabbles, yet through it all, unwavering support for each other. They’ll also share the legacies and challenges faced while trying to sustain their businesses, especially when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Episode 2 is all about Old Tastes. A decades-old noodle dish, sun-dried cuttlefish brined until chewy and succulent; and artisanal hand-stuffed Chinese sausages. What else are in these hawkers’ special recipes?
