Singapore Eats: A guide to exploring Singapore’s culinary scene

Singapore is always fascinating. From its efficient transportation system to the amazing architecture, this sovereign city-state is a magnet for travelers. Naturally, the food is just as marvelous. It’s diverse culture has led to an array of dishes derived from its ethnic groups.

We went back to Singapore last month for a quick visit to my sister and we filled Our Hungry Tummies with a lot of delicious eats! At the same time, we decided to make this handy guide since there are a lot food choices there and it can be quite overwhelming. Unfortunately, because we were pressed for time, we skipped our usual favorites such as Hainanese Chicken Rice, Oyster Omelette (Orh Lua), and Char Kway Teow and tried other equally awesome food the country has to offer.

Disclaimer: This is not a “best of Singapore” list but a simple guide on what you can expect to eat in Singapore. As stated earlier, the more “iconic” Singaporean dishes were not included but we HIGHLY suggest to try those as well.

We paid for our own meals in writing this post.

A special thanks to my dear sister, Neri for providing us with some of the photos and also for showing us around! ♥♥♥

Hawker Centres: Great food for affordable price

First things first: when you go to Singapore, make sure to check out hawker centres (food courts) where humble food stalls are lined up around the sides of an open-air complex (you can also find some inside malls) while communal seats occupy the middle.

Most of the delicious meals that we had were at hawker centres. Popular to both locals and tourists alike, there you can find quality and reasonably priced meals ranging from SGD 2.00 – SGD 5.00 (approx. PHP 78.00 – PHP 195.00 ; USD 1.46 – USD 3.64), with the exception of more costly dishes such as cereal prawns and chili crabs. Do note that well-known stalls typically run out of food earlier than others.

To temporarily escape from the hot weather, we decided to check out some of the hawker centres located inside the malls. Of course, the food prices were higher compared to open-air hawker centres. Prices ranged from SGD 5.00 – SGD 10.00 (approx. PHP 195.00 – PHP 390.00 ; USD 3.64 – USD 7.29).

Singapore Eats

Although Our Hungry Tummies always want to enjoy as many dishes as we can at the places we visit, Singapore has such a vast number of food choices and cuisines that it was not possible to try everything during our short stay.  Here are some of the dishes that we loved:

 

1.) Ban Mian (Handmade Noodles in Soup)

Ban Mian is a Chinese handmade noodles served in soup and topped with meat, fish, vegetables, dumplings, and egg. We tried the Dumpling Ban Mian at Kopitiam Food Court. The broth was light and a bit bland. However, we were able to adjust it to our liking with some fish sauce and chili oil. The meat was tender and the noodles were cooked just right.

2.) Laksa

Laksa is usually made of rice noodles and served in a coconut curry soup, topped with shrimp, fish cakes, eggs, and meat. There are various versions of this iconic dish and many different toppings as well.

My sister Neri insisted that we try the popular charcoal-cooked laksa at Sungei Road Laksa in Jalan Berseh. It was the one of the best laksa that we ever had and definitely the best SGD 3.00 (approx. PHP 117.00 USD 2.19) that we ever spent. The moment I had a taste, I immediately understood why people were willing to wait in a long line to order this dish. The rich and creamy broth was complemented by the simpleness of the fish cakes and the freshness of the cockles. The sambal chili was surprisingly not too spicy, which was perfect for me.

3.) Pig Organ Soup

Honestly, we only tried Authentic Mun Chee Kee King of Pig’s Organ Soup out of mere curiosity. Surprisingly, we actually liked it! The soup was served with generous amounts of pig liver, sliced pork, pork belly, pork balls, silken tofu, and salted vegetables. We enjoyed the tasty soup so much that we had a few refills (for free!). We decided to pair it with plain white rice and Lu Rou Fan (Braised Pork Belly Rice).

The Lu Rou Fan was packed with flavor and went well with the pig organ soup. Although offered as a side dish, it can also be eaten as a light meal on its own.

Nearest MRT Station: Jalan Besar

4.) Beef or Seafood Hor Fun (Flat Rice Noodles in Gravy)

Hor Fun is basically flat rice noodles in gravy which is usually topped with beef or seafood. We tried Ah Wok‘s Seafood Hor Fun at Food Opera and loved its slightly charred flavor. It was swimming in gravy that we could barely see the noodles underneath the seafood and vegetables!

5.) Cereal Prawns

We were supposed to eat Fish Head Steamboat for dinner at Nan Hwa Chong Fish Head Steamboat Corner but we were still a bit full from eating a hefty late lunch that day. We decided to order their Cereal Prawns instead. Cereal Prawns, as the name suggests, are succulent fried prawns covered with crispy cereal. The prawns were mildly sweet and the curry leaves added a nutty aroma to the dish.

Note: If you find yourself at Nan Hwa Chong Fish Head Steamboat Corner, go ahead and order their Fish Head Steamboat! We were looking at the people from other tables with a bit of envy but (to our own astonishment) our tummies were too full and we didn’t want to have any leftovers.

6.) Chili Crab

Although we enjoyed Chili Crab during our 2014 trip, we were hesitant to order it again because we found it too expensive – SGD 50.00 (approx. PHP 1948.00 ; USD 36.44) for a kilogram (35.27 oz.) of crab. However, the enticing smell coming from Mattar Road Seafood Barbecue (Old Airport Road Food Centre) was enough for us to have a change of heart. It costed a whopping SGD 30.00 (approx. PHP 1169.00 ; USD 21.86) for a small order. Good thing my sister took pity and footed our bill (she’s the best!).

The sweet and juicy crab dipped into a rich, creamy, tangy sauce sent us to a food euphoria! The crab innards (and TONS of roe!) we scooped from its shell was an intense explosion of crabby flavor. I can’t recall how many times we made the mmm! (yes, with exclamation point) sound. Sadly, our photo doesn’t do this tasty dish justice as we had difficulty with lighting and our camera was already running out of battery. Maybe Neri will treat us again next time so we can take a better picture!

7.) Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee

Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee consists of egg noodles and vermicelli noodles, and is made with a rich stock and lard cubes. It is often topped with prawns, squid, and pork, and is served with chili and calamansi.

We went for a late-night eating spree and had our Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee fix at Yi Ji Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee. We loved that their recipe was on the drier side compared to other Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee. If you’re feeling a bit self-indulgent you can add more pork lard to make it tastier! The noodles were not soggy and the calamansi provided a nice zing to the slightly smokey flavor of the noodles. Be careful not too mix all of your chili because it can be too spicy! They were not kidding when they said their chili was one of the spiciest around.

8.) Hokkien Lor Mee (Braised Noodles)

We were in the mood for some atas kopitiam (upscale coffee shop) for a casual and relaxed night when we stumbled upon Wild Market Food Court at Shaw Towers. Out of the few stalls to choose from, Little Penang caught our eye. But instead of ordering a Malaysian dish (they mostly serve dishes from Penang, Malaysia), we tried their Hokkien Lor Mee because another customer ordered it first and we thought it looked delectable.

Flat, yellow noodles were submerged in a thick, starchy, and extremely flavorful sauce. A generous amount of pork belly and fish cakes, and a hard-boiled egg were also added to the dish and it was served with a spoonful of black vinegar. It’s a bit difficult to describe this dish as it was savory, sweet, and sour all at the same time.

9.) Hainanese Curry

Looks can be deceiving. This is perhaps the best way to describe Hainanese Curry. Fried (or braised) pork with stewed cabbage and other vegetables were sloppily drenched with a rich curry gravy over a steaming plate of rice. It may not look as appetizing as the other dishes on the list, but trust us, you will want to try this out.

Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice serves one of the best Hainanese Curry Rice in Singapore. A plate will cost around SGD 3.40 to 5.00 (approx. PHP 132.00 – PHP 195.00 ; USD 2.48 – USD 3.64), depending on the amount of toppings you want.

10.) Liu Sha Bao (Salted Egg Yolk Custard Bun)

Even though we think that Hong Kong is the king of the dim sum scene, Singapore is also home to a lot of awesome and delicious dim sum. Still hit with the salted egg yolk craze, we had to try the liu sha bao (salted egg yolk custard bun). A friendly uncle told us that Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant serves one of the best affordable dim sum. He gave us directions and even warned us to go early because their queue can get really long during dinner hours (thanks, friendly uncle!).

Following the friendly uncle’s advice, we went there a few minutes before their opening time (6:00 PM) and patiently waited. Our initial plan was just to try their liu sha bao but we ended up ordering a variety of dim sum (there were so many to choose from!).

Singapore Food Guide

Dim sum feast at Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant

Everything was delicious and reasonably priced but the liu sha bao was our star of the meal. We filled our mouths with sweet and creamy salted egg yolk custard filled with each bite of the soft and warm bun. It was the reason we went there in the first place!

If this is not salted egg yolk custard paradise, then we don’t know what is.

11.) Kaya Toast

No breakfast in Singapore is complete without Kaya Toast! Kaya (a sweet jam made from eggs, coconut milk, sugar, and pandan) is  slathered on a thin, buttered toast and served with soft-boiled eggs. To enjoy the Kaya Toast, you first add a splash of soy sauce and a sprinkle of pepper to the soft-boiled eggs then give it a mix. Next, dip the toast in the egg mixture before eating. Of course, the meal wouldn’t be complete without a hot cup of Kopi (coffee)!

We went to Ya Kun Kaya Toast‘s outlet at Suntec City, a popular choice for both locals and travelers, and ordered their “French Toast set”. The kaya went well with the fluffy toast. 

To get a feel of an old school Kopitiam, we also went to their original branch at Far East Square and ordered “Kaya Toast with Butter set”. The toast was crispy, sweet, and buttery.

12.)Ice Kachang and Chendol

Popular and beloved in Southeast Asia, Ice Kachang (or Ice Kacang) and Chendol (or Cendol) are both colorful and flavorful treats. Both are best eaten during the hot days but of course, one won’t mind ordering these even on rainy days.

Ice Kachang is usually made with shaved ice, red beans, sweet corn, and grass jelly. However, there are many stalls/stores that adorn it with other ingredients as well. It is drizzled with a multi-colored syrup and evaporated milk.

Chendol is also made with shaved ice, red beans, and grass jelly, but its most distinct feature is the green worm-like rice flour jelly. Coconut milk and gula melaka (palm sugar) syrup are added to it.

We tried both desserts at a stall in Food Junction (Bugis Junction) but I forgot to take note how much we paid for it as well as where we got it (I was too tired from walking around Bugis!).

13.) Ice Cream Sandwich/ Ice Cream Wafer

In Singapore, you can choose between a bread or a wafer to “sandwich” your ice cream. We knew that we can have ice cream sandwiches in other countries (Philippines included) but with all the spicy stuff that we’d been eating all day, we couldn’t resist buying from the ice cream uncle during our late night stroll around Boat Quay.

Ice cream sandwich

Ice cream sandwich from a “Wall’s” Ice Cream Uncle – SGD 2.00 (PHP 78.00 ; USD 1.46)

Ice Cream Uncles

Ice cream uncles are scattered around Singapore, but Orchard Road, Clarke Quay, and Merlion Park are few of the popular spots.

Conclusion:

Singapore is a foodie’s gastronomical heaven. Wherever you look, there will always be something interesting to try. We spent our 4 days eating as many dishes as possible so that we could create this quick guide. Although not thorough, we hope that this will be helpful in planning your Singapore food trip. We also suggest to ask the locals about where to eat as they would know best.

    1. Thanks! Yes, it was really delicious!

  22. Singapore is a virtual melting pot of Asia with a vibrant and varied cuisine. Being vegetarians we had somewhat limited options as compared to Non-vegetarian choices, however what I really love about Singapore is the wide range of food across all budgets that it has to offer. The Ice Kachang and Chendol look really enticing, though we did not try these in Singapore, on a recent visit to Malaysia we tasted these desserts and found them yummy.

    1. My sister recommends Lau Pa Sat Hawker, there are a lot of vegetarian options there (she’s also a vegetarian!). Feel free to check it out on your next visit! 🙂

  23. Not a lot of vegetarian options I guess 😂 But I’d be all over that Liu Sha Bao and Kaya toast!!looks like you guys did a great job of trying everything, well done!

    1. There is actually a decent amount of vegetarian options in Singapore due to its Indian influence. However, we were not able to try those because we were pressed for time! My sister loves Lau Pa Sat Hawker (she’s also a vegetarian!) for vegetarian options 🙂

  24. didn’t see to many veggie options but loved the look of the noodles! Great comprehensive guide!

    1. Thanks! Maybe we’ll cover veggie options when we get back!

  25. Oh my I just loved the food everytime that I go over to Singapore. I especially the Wok feast and also the Dim sum feast at Swee Choon Tim it sounds great and it made my mouth water.

    1. Yes! We’re planning to go back just for the food!

  26. I’m dying to go to Singapore! All of the food looks amazing!

    1. Hope this would be helpful to you when you go to Singapore!

  27. Singapore is definitely on my travel list. Such a foodie haven I cant wait to eat at some of these places.

    1. It’s definitely a foodie’s paradise!

  28. Singapore has been on my list for awhile. However, I’ll admit after seeing Crazy Rich Asians recently, I want to go even more! The food looks amazing, a foodie’s paradise. I’m ready!

    1. Haha, pack your bags!

  29. I have heard so many great things about Singapore – food, fashion and touristy (all!). I am a vegetarian but I am sure I will find plenty of options there … 🙂

    1. There are vegetarian options as well! We were not able to try those because we only had four days to eat. My sister (who lives there) is also a vegetarian and she’s quite happy with the food!

  30. Wow that’s a really comprehensive foodie guide. One of my friends come’s from Singapore and we found a very good restaurant in London that sell Singaporean food but obviously not such an extensive selection as you’ve described.

    1. Thank you, at least there’s a very good Singaporean restaurant that you can easily access 🙂

  31. Wow! This is really a great list! I’ve tried a couple of these dishes on our trip to Singapore. I wish I knew about all these eating options at that time. I would love to try the Ban Mian and the Kaya toast. They sound and look so delicious.

    1. We can eat Kaya Toast everyday! It’s one of the things that we’ve been missing since our trip!

  32. Look at all the amazing food. I imagine so it taste as good as it looks.

  33. On our last trip to Singapore we mainly ate at the Hawkers. Its so fresh and cheap and perfect for locals and travellers alike. Some eye-popping food photos!

    1. Thank you! It’s also a great way to experience Singaporean cuisine!

  34. everything looks and sounds so good! this is also a really great resource for travelers!

    1. Thank you, I hope it helps more people with their travel plans/ food cravings!

  35. So many choices and everything looks so delicious, I love the cereal shrimp!

  36. Nom nom! I love hawker food in Singapore…and the smells, too. Of course, I choose the hawkers stalls where I go to because some are not so clean. But generally, everything is so good!

    1. Hawker food in Singapore is still the best bang for your money!

  37. This is a helpful guide for anyone traveling to Singapore and wants to divulge in the food scene there. The chilli crab looks divine.

    1. Thank you! The chili crab is a must-try!

  38. This post is a very gastronomic tour through Singapore. The food looks delicious ! I am craving to try Singapore cousine now!

    1. You must include Singapore to your travel bucket list!

  39. The food looks amazing. Thanks for sharing!

We'd love to hear from you!
