As Singapore unwillingly braces itself for 6.9 million in population, there will be an evolution in the food we consume and how we consume it.

Traditional hawker businesses are a dying trade. Our pace of life has increased manifold. Technological advancements have changed the way food is processed and consumed - the very notion of eating revolving around our lifestyles.

Artificial flavours, colourings and textures are the norm.This is the "fast-food" phenomenon. What if our traditional food stalls and favourite local dishes went the way of the fast-food chain?

Inconceivable? You decide.
