SINGAPORE – Welcome to Singapore and today we’re going on an ultimate Singapore street food tour within the Chinatown Complex – which happens to be the biggest hawker centre in Singapore – to eat 5 of the best dishes!
Here’s the food I ate:
1. Fatty Ox HK Kitchen (https://goo.gl/maps/wRKwNDpx5RATae9S7) – This is something I was excited to try, since I love brisket egg noodles, Hong Kong style. The noodles were springy and tasty, and the beef and tendon was melt in your mouth tender. Price – S$4
2. Ma Li Ya Virgin Chicken (https://goo.gl/maps/oyQcCEPXGpZfkb9N7) – Chinatown Complex in Singapore is famous for soya sauce braised chicken, and there are two especially famous places, Hawker Chan and Ma Li Ya Virgin Chicken. I decided to go to the latter, and I was glad I did. The chicken was moist and silky all the way to the bone, and the soya sauce was delicious and comforting. I had the extra big plate with bean sprouts and silken tofu on the side. Price – S$6
3. Herbal Soup (https://goo.gl/maps/LZLaPnWusdN7PJBf7) – This was an unplanned dish of this Singapore food tour – herbal black chicken soup. I noticed it was very popular and I loved how they still cook in huge earthenware clay jars using charcoal and serve a variety of Chinese herbal soups. I ordered the black chicken herbal soup that was served with rice and tea on the side. I was delicious. Price – S$5.50
4. Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao (https://goo.gl/maps/4r6DKTpf3N4Cax1aA) – Next up on this street food tour in Singapore, Zhong Guo La Mian Xiao Long Bao, without a doubt, one of the highlights for me. They made everything by hand. Their xiao long bao was excellent, their Sichuan spicy noodles were delicious and peanutty, but the best was their spicy wantons. Total price – S$17
Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck (https://goo.gl/maps/CXxN32xJvNnExF6eA) – While I was eating my dumplings, I met Melvin who owns Jin Ji Teochew Braised Duck. His braised duck place is delicious.
5. Zhao Ji Claypot Rice (https://goo.gl/maps/s4p4WJ544m1dEq516) – Finally to end this Singapore street food tour, I had to try claypot rice. Zhao Ji Claypot Rice is run by Dung, who is an extremely friendly lady. She allowed me into the kitchen to see the process. She cooks within iron pans. I ordered the extra large $28 size, though there are smaller sizes as well. She was so cool to demonstrate the entire claypot rice cooking method, mixing in a bit of oil and dark soy sauce to serve. It was the best comfort food to end an amazing day. Price – S$28
That completes this Singapore street food tour, hope you enjoyed the amazing food!
