Singapore: Local Eats

Pan-fried Seabass @ Chinatown

Garlic Shrimp @ Chinatown

Chili Crab, Black Pepper Crab and Tiger Prawns with Golden Garlic @ Longbeach Seafood

Left to Right: Lemon ice tea, Kaya Toast (peanut & butter/sugar/milk), Laska, Hainanese Chicken Rice and Eggs Benedict.

The eggs benedict isn't something indigenous of the region but it was an interesting take on the dish, presentation-wise. Obviously, we couldn't say we've been to Singapore without having Hainanese Chicken Rice from the famous Tian Tian stall at the Maxwell Hawker Centre. To me, it was good but it wasn't mind blowing good. I think because we've grown up on Asian flavors that it wasn't a new taste to me. To give it some perspective, it was like a combination of Chicken Tinola and the broth from Laoya/Nilagang Baka.

Other items that we tried were White Carrot Cake (white carrot, rice flour dough, fried with egg, garlic, and diced scallions), Roti Prata (fried flour-based pancake), and Hokkien Mee (standard noodle dish that looks like pancit canton).

Everywhere we looked, there was a food court a few feet away. No one goes hungry here. The one thing you have to remember is to bring your own napkins. That's why it's so clean there. No napkins.
