    If you are a lazy hawker who keep cooking the same average standard fare or worst have no real passion for it but take over from your parents, your standard over time drops, use inferior ingredients and take less care to improve or expand your range of dishes then you will see patrons disappearing. No different from anyone else seeking to succeed in a modern corporate environment. Everyone from top to bottom has to face the possibility that mediocrity can happen to anyone. heheh.

    How many times have we come across great hawker stall that cook so nice we would travel across the island to eat and even if they raise their prices, we bitch but yet we keep patronizing them. heh
    Not true. Nowadays even if your food is 'no horse run' and your customers travel x-country to visit your stall, your landlord will simply up your rent so you only break even. You work hard to build your recipe and brand, but the reward will be sucked away by the landlord.

    Hong Kong Jin Tian Eating House is closing down at the end of this month. We stop by to chat to the chefs about one of the best roast ducks in Singapore.
    Another victim of soaring rents in Tiong Bahru, Hong Kong Jin Tian is ceasing business at the end of April. Very soon, the hipster neighbourhood may just be left with bakeries and cupcake joints.

    This is where the govenment can come in to create commune where common folks can cook and share food and clean up keeping prices low or almost free:

    IMO
    It has more to do with greed and raising rents than raw material prices ..
