Local Foods in Singapore
A friend of mine who is living in Singapore researched a lot for us. The following list should be the best places to go. Every local restaurant and all Food Courts in Singapore are so clean and safe.
1. Chicken Rice
When we visited the Katong area, we struggled to decide which Chicken Rice or Laksa to choose, but we ate Boon Tong Kee Chicken Rice. 328 Katong Laksa was another recommendation.
Chicken Rice contains a tender boiled chicken accompanied by cooked rice with chicken stock. The rice is sticky, crunchy and chewy. I couldn’t stop eating the rice. We also ordered fried chicken. You can enjoy different tenderness of chickens.
2. Bak Kut Teh
One of the popular local foods in Singapore is Bak Kut Teh, a meat bone soup. We went to Song Fa where they filled up our bowls with their soup so the meat was softened till the end. I was not a super fan of pork soup, but Bak Kut Teh was not oily and was very smooth to drink.
3. Chili Crab
Jumbo Seafood is one of the most popular Chili Crab restaurants in Singapore, but my friend recommended Red House. Red House is also a long-established Chili Crab restaurant. Our table was right in front of the river and we could enjoy the breeze and coolness coming from it.
My friend extracted crab meat and mixed it with the mildly hot and sweet chili sauce. We ordered steamed shrimps and mixed the Chili Crab sauce with them too.
Food Courts have various kinds of Asian foods including, Sushi, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Western, American and South Asian foods. The diversity of foods was so generous.
We can choose from Japanese, Korean, Indian, Chinese, Sandwiches and various Western kinds of foods. Some of these shops are chain restaurants, while others are run by one owner, but each of them has individuality.
