It’s 10.15am on a random weekday during Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), and the stores at Ion Orchard mall are still sluggishly preparing to open for the day. At new food enclave Hawkers’ Street, an elderly uncle in a fake Gucci cap is slyly testing whether he could slip past the barrier posts and into the shop, which is having its grand launch at 10.30am today (June 3). He dutifully steps back and waits when a staff informs him about the opening time.

It’s perhaps unsurprising that there are already people waiting to enter Hawkers’ Street — the hawker centre-themed eatery that has been garnering buzz online for weeks. 8days.sg first reported in May this year that it was opening at the basement of the glitzy Orchard Road mall.
