Communal dining is the practice of dining with others. The practice is centred on food and sharing time with people who come together to connect over meals and conversations. Singapore’s tradition of communal dining at hawker centres has been recognised by UNESCO for its cultural significance – the United Nations’ cultural agency inscribed Singapore’s hawker culture to its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in December 2020.
