Hawker cannot sell a “restaurant” type dish?

Check out the terms and conditions of a hawker stall license under point 3 – a hawker cannot sell a “restaurant” type dish? What kind of stupid onerous ruling is this? How do you define a restaurant type dish? So if restaurants sell crab meat fried rice a hawker must seek approval to do the same?

Does this mean an enterprising young F&B hawker aspirant can’t set up a taco stand because a Mexican restaurant sells tacos, unless he gets the go-ahead?

No wonder hawker culture is dying. There are dumbass rules restricting innovation.
