The Eat List
Presenting the eat list that’s worthy of the Merlion’s attention and presentation! Our definition of what a definitive Singapore food guide is all about. Though this is just a sample, it represents some of the best:
Laksa is likely to be familiar to you. It’s best described as a unique combination and Chinese and Malaysian flavours as well as ingredients. Noodles serve as the foundation and starch of this dish. This is usually followed by curry or gravy, protein bits, and some herbs and vegetables. Different types of laksa exist. There are those that are water-based, and there are those that are richer with the inclusion of coconut milk.
Hokkien Mee is a very popular fried noodle hawker dish in Singapore. It has its roots in the Fujian province of China because the Hokkien people originally came from that place. The dish has been happily adopted in both Malaysia and Singapore. This dish is a mixture of white rice noodles and yellow egg noodles. They are fried in a wok with seafood, egg, and bean sprouts.
Singapore’s chicken rice is a Hainanese influenced dish. It really is quite simple as a dish since it’s just a combination of boiled chicken, rice, and sauce. But despite its simplicity, this dish is actually one of the most popular in Singapore. Its simplicity also means that almost everyone in Singapore has its own version of it. Which is great because it makes for a great variety in flavour and appearance of the dish.
Enjoyed the food, err, we mean the Singapore food guide? It’s as flavorful as it is colourful. Which means that it satisfies more than just one’s tongue and tummy. It definitely makes for great-looking dishes as well.
