The Best of Singapore Food
Singapore is a marvelous place to enjoy food, and Singapore food is renowned for its diversity. But it can be expensive… like most major city in the world, eating out can make up a major cost of your travel expenditure. And Singapore is no exception. Most tourists would only ever experience the expensive restaurant food (Along the shopping street).
Fortunately, here in Singapore, you will be able to salvage and salivate some of the most intriguing and fascinating food in the world – without burning a hole in your pocket!
How can it be possible? Well, just follow what the local eats… do a little finding and walking, that will do the trick.
If you really want to experience local Singapore food at it best, try the hawker centers (a place where all the food stalls are set up together) within the neighbourhood.
Here are some of my favourite Singapore local food…
|Ba Chor Mee: Mince pork noodle serve with lightly seasoned fish ball soup. Fresh sliced pork, liver, chunky mushroom and aromatic minced pork are used as ingredient to the noodles.||Hainanese Chicken Rice: As the name suggested, it is a Singapore local food. Steam chicken served with fragrant rice… remember to have it with the ginger –garlic chilli sauce!|
|Satay: Malay delicacies that serve with meat kebabs, rice cake, cucumber, onion and thick peanut gravy. Scintillating!||Laksa: Rice noodles mix with curry (coconut based) gravy, served together with eggs, chicken, prawn and cockles. Spicy and yummy!|
|Bak Kut Teh: It is make up of Pork ribs cooked with five spices, garlic and pepper in a tasty soup. The dish is best served with white rice and Chinese tea to bring out its flavour.||Roti Prata and Teh Tarik: A south Indian pancake ( you can go with or without egg) served with thick mutton or fish curry gravy. Teh tarik is a Malay tea mixed with both evaporated and condensed milk. A word of caution…the drink can be very addictive!|
|Rojak: Call it a local salad. It is served with fruits and vegetable; mixed with thick prawn paste and toppled with peanuts. Rojak can be very appetizing and it is best eaten as a side dish.||Chicken Curry: A dish served with spicy curry gravy, tender chicken meat and Holland potatoes. Best goes with French loaves and white fragrant rice.|
|Char Kway Teow:A mixed of white and yellow noodles fried with dark sweet sauce, bean sprouts, fish cake, vegetable and clams. This is a dish that can leave you asking for more.||Fried Carrot Cake: The dish is fried with rice flour and radish (white carrot) together with soy sauce, eggs, garlic and pickled radish.|
I could easily have named a few more Singapore local food here. But I suggest you do some adventurous food picking when you are in the hawker centers to experience the diversity of Singapore food.
Just remember this …the best value for money Singapore food is always found in the heart of the residential living area.
