An island-country and a city-state, Singapore has charmed and enthralled its visitors for decades
A magical city that literally offers something for everyone.
So if you begin to list out the things that make Singapore stand out and really special , here’s what you might probably come up with
When i quizzed my friends on their knowledge about Singapore, they came up with the basic known facts like Sentosa Island, Cheaper electronics prices, Shopper’s Delight, Best Asian destination for vacation/honeymoon and so on. But surprisingly none of them happened to talk about the main speciality.
So what was missing here? Something so special and unique to Singapore, that may not available or even sourced from anywhere else? Yes, you guessed it right . Its Food !! A little known fact about Singapore is that its home to several hundred varieties of food and can serve as a gastronomical delight to all its visitors.
Singapore Food Trail
So don’t be surprised when you see a Chinese guy pouring Indian spices into his noodles or Indian chef preparing Fried rice mixing with a Thai ingredient to form a truly Asian delicacy
So when I had a chance to visit Singapore a few years back , I didn’t miss the chance to experience this gastronomical delight and went on food tours exploring the different food options in Singapore
Food is taken very seriously like an obsession, so much so , that it’s declared as a National past-time in Singapore
Based on everything that I had tried, I have listed some of the foods that I have taken a particular liking to and would also encourage my readers to try it out sometime
The Perfect Singaporean Mail – A 4 Course Lunch
To begin with , any lunch begins with a very crispy starter and here I’m opting for a Singaporean styled Singapore roll ,which is less on the oil but tends towards the salad variety and very tasty too
You don’t start a sumptuous Singaporean meal without a Spicy Soup and my favourite among that would include the famous Tom-Yum Soup
Followed by this, I’d probably go for the vegetarian version of Mee Goreng Rice for the main course, coupled with some french fries and the spicy Singaporean sauce
Mee Goreng is the perfect meal of the day , and can be had almost anytime. It’s very tasty, filling and also doesnt have too much fat compared to other foods.
This fine meal is now concluded with yet another hot item instead of dessert and you should head to a Kopi-Tiam where you sip on an authentic Malay hot tea
Who said Singapore food is just restricted to Singapore Noodles and Komalas? Come visit Singapore, to enjoy its huge variety of divine mouth watering food, but do come on an empty stomach 🙂
