Top 5 local food to try out in Singapore - And where to try them!

Food from hawker stalls is a must-try when in Singapore. Here are five of the dishes you shouldn't miss out on:


Carrot cake at the Chey Sua Carrot Cake

The carrot cake here might not be something you are used to. Did you expect it to be made out of carrots? Well, the Singapore version does not include carrot. It actually incorporates daikon radish that is pureed and mixed it in rice flour. It is chopped and fried in eggs and preserved radishes. The one at Chey Sua is crispy, oily and savoury, and is served in the best way possible. You'll also be served with some sambal that offers some sweetness and the fresh topping of spring onions adds a refreshing taste.


Bak Chor Mee at the Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodles

Another noodle dish that must be tried in Singapore is the Bak Chor Mee which is basically a dish serving ground pork noodles. The one in this particular restaurant is something else altogether in regard to flavour. And that would be why this place holds a Michelin star at the moment. Besides, if you're looking for serviced apartments in Singapore around these establishments, you can check out properties like Ascott Main.


Fried Prawn Mee at the Hong Heng Fried Sotong Prawn Mee

Prawn mee is another very satisfying meal. The Hong Heng version of the Prawn Mee incorporates yellow and vermicelli noodles, along with eggs, prawns and poached squids, all mixed and cooked in herbs and spices. Even seafood broth is added giving it a boost in flavour. And it doesn't end there. The dish is served with sambal which once again adds to all the delightful flavours. The noodles take in all the broth, making it one of the most delicious dishes you can have out here.


Curry Puffs at the J2 Crispy Curry Puffs

Curry puffs are a popular snack in Singapore and one you shouldn't be missing out on. This ubiquitous food can be bought and tasted pretty much everywhere in this country. When making these curry puffs, the dough gets kneaded carefully and then folded to make sure the product is crispy and flaky. If you are not sure of which one to taste, then go for the sardine one, you wouldn't be disappointed with this one. Or any of the flavours, for that matter. And make sure to get one share for you alone. You won't be wanting to share it with anyone! Where to try it? Well, at the J2 Crispy. They have the best versions.


Claypot Chicken Rice at the New Lucky Claypot Rice

Well, when trying out any Asian cuisine, you must make sure to try at least one rice dish. And there's nothing which beats the classic and aromatic chicken rice. Although the dish may sound simple, the flavours aren't. The rice is prepared in an earthen clay pot, with Chinese sausages, salted fish and the chicken, of course. The reason why you need to head to the New Lucky Claypot Rice to taste this dish is because they prepare this dish using traditional techniques, from its prep to its outcome.
