SINGAPORE – Today I’m hanging out with the one and only KF Seetoh, a legend of Singapore street food and hawker culture. We’re going to take you on a born and bred food tour of Singapore – dishes that were invented right here in Singapore.
Here are all the places we ate at in this Singapore food tour:
Bak Kee Teochew Satay Bee Hoon (https://goo.gl/maps/Cn3hg4Dp89PpVXLW8) – First we headed to Bukit Merah, also known as Red Hill. It’s a huge neighborhood complex, market and hawker center. There’s a massive selection of food to choose from, but KF Seetoh took me first to eat satay bee hoon, or thin angel hair vermicelli covered in seafood and pork, and a ladle of creamy peanut sauce.
Hong Seng Curry Rice (https://goo.gl/maps/Tg4ni8cCrVHrBWz67) – Within the same Red Hill hawker centre you’ll find Hong Seng Curry Rice, where you can enjoy another popular Singapore street food – Hainanese curry rice.
Geylang Lorong 29 Hokkien Mee (https://goo.gl/maps/w8TWfRXN7XpqPhwWA) – Continuing on this food tour we drove over to Geylang to eat one of the best versions of Hokkien fried prawn mee, a stir fried noodle dish that’s one of the most beloved in Singapore. They make it by the batch and we had the chance to see the entire process of how it’s made. Delicious!
The Original Vadai (https://goo.gl/maps/TtSg9iY3cbHgPd9r5) – Next up over to Joo Chiat to eat at the Original Vadai – a Sri Lankan origin – yet transformed in Singapore to be more light and fluffy, totally different texture and flavor. They are so addictive and one of the best things about them is that you bite a green chili and then follow it with bites of the prawn vadai.
Sha Zah Confectionery (https://goo.gl/maps/fRaA3vQ4taggjDvJ8) – Finally to complete this food tour with KF Seetoh we headed over to Sha Zah Confectionery for their giant curry puffs. A perfect way to end this delicious Singapore street food tour!
