WHAT TO EAT

 

Hainanese Chicken Rice


Considered one of the national dishes of Singapore, the poached chicken is accompanied with fluffy, fragrant rice. The dish is served with a dipping sauce of freshly minced red chilli and garlic, usually accompanied with dark soy sauce and freshly ground ginger. Even Anthony Bourdain said that the rice is so fragrant and delicious that it can be eaten on its own. 


 

Laksa


This Peranakan cuisine – a combination of Chinese and Malay cuisine – is a popular dish with the locals. It is a spicy, curry coconut milk noodle soup served with rice vermicelli, chicken, prawn, cockles and fish cake. Famed Michelin starred chef Gordon Ramsay was defeated by our Singaporean Laksa Hawker Challenge in 2013.

 
 
 

Chilli Crab


Another dish that is synonymous with Singapore is the Chilli Crab, which is among Singapore’s greatest culinary inventions. The crabs are cooked with a sweet and spicy sauce – a blend of tomatoes and chilli paste, thickened with ribbons of beaten eggs sauce. Try ordering a plate of mantou (fried or steamed buns) and dip the mantou into the delicious sauce.


 

Hokkien Fried Mee


Originated from China’s Fujian (Hokkien) province, this humble and flavourful noodle dish is cooked by frying egg noodles and rice noodles with rick stock, eggs, slices of pork, prawns, squid and garnished with vegetables. Squeeze the cut lime into the noodle to add a tangy flavor to your noodle.

 
 
 

Bak Kut Teh


Enjoy pork ribs slowly simmered in a complex broth of herb and spices. Two styles can be found in Singapore – Teochew style which is a clear soup with a peppery taste and Klang (Malaysian) style which is a darker broth with a herbal taste.


 

Char Kway Teow


Char Kway Teow is considered one of the national favourite dishes in Singapore. Rice noodles and egg noodles are stir-fried with cockles, eggs, slices of Chinese sausages, bean sprouts and fish cake. If you’re up for a kick, order a plate of Char Kway Teow with extra chilli.

 
 
 

Roti Prata


This soft, flakey and crispy South Indian flour-based pancake is fried over a flat grill and is served with a dish of either mutton, chicken, vegetable or fish curry. Modern versions include cheese, onion, banana, chocolate, mushroom or egg. This simple yet delicious dish has certainly won over the hearts of many.


 

Nasi Lemak


Nasi Lemak is a dish believed to be Malay in origin. It comprises of rice made fragrant with coconut cream and pandan leaves. It is traditionally served with fried anchovies, toasted peanuts, sliced cucumbers and a sweet chilli sauce. Nowadays, variations of the dish offer an array of other side dishes like chicken wings, fried eggs, otah (barbequed fish paste) and fried fish.
