About Bird’s Nest Drink Stalls in the 1950s
The Bird’s Nest drink – a mix of sugar, pandan leaves, bird’s nest (Cui Yan), was a Chinese delicacy and sold on the streets by hawkers in carts. It was a particularly common sight at Wayang (Chinese Street Opera) performances. This was because it provided refreshments to viewers during these performances in Singapore’s hot and humid climate. The fragrance from the boiling pandan leaves would attract long queues from afar.
