Discovering Singaporean Cuisine

Go on a culinary journey!

Reflecting the core values and practices of its people, Singapore’s food culture is one of the country’s unique selling points. For a closer look at what’s hot and appetizing, do read along below.

Hainanese Chicken Rice

Rated as a hallmark of Singapore’s culinary spectacle – Hainanese Chicken Rice is a dish that combines rice cooked in chicken stock and freshly steamed chicken. Often enjoyed during lunch, one’s experience will be capped off by sprinkling a dipping sauce on the chicken before proceeding to attack it with relentless vigour.

Chili Crab

With a flavoursome tomato chilli at its base, the semi-thick gravy-covered Singaporean Chili Crab will easily have you ordering seconds no sooner than you’ve polished off your first. The crabs which are initially steamed are then stir-fried for a few minutes in a paste made up of eggs, ketchup and chili sauce. This delicacy is traditionally eaten with your hands accompanied by bread that will help absorb the gravy.

Char Kuay Teow

An easy find on the menus of both restaurants and hawker centres, Char Kuay Teow can be termed as a slew of meals all packed into one dish. With broad white noodles as its main ingredient, Char Kuay Teow involves the frying of these noodles in black soya sauce. Into this, go in fish cakes, Chinese sausages, clams and bean sprouts that will make you salivate at the ends as your chef deftly plates your noodles.

Roti Prata and Teh Tarik

The prospect of munching on the flaky Indian bread known as Roti Prata which works extremely well with a thick, lentil curry cannot be missed out on, especially if you’re in Little India. Added to this is Teh Tarik which is made with carnation milk and served with a froth. In the event you’re staying at a co-living Singapore studio apartment at properties like lyf Farrer Park Singapore, then you will be well placed to visit Little India for such treats and so much more.
