Experiencing the gastronomic delights of Singapore

December 6, 2012

 

One of the best ways to experience Singapore while on your medical stay is by trying out the multitude of mouthwatering dishes that Singapore is best known for.

From crowd favorites like Hainanese chicken rice to the world-famous Singaporean Chili Crab, Singaporean food is a combination of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Tamil flavor influences but is also uniquely Singaporean.

Here are some of the other gastronomic delights of Singapore:

Char kway teow. This is a fried noodle dish prepared with prawns, Chinese sausages, eggs, green onions, mung bean sprouts, and dark soy sauce that is expertly prepared by hawkers.

Fish head curry. A fish head floating in a sea of curried vegetables might shock some people, but regardless of how it looks, fish head curry is one of the best dishes Singapore has to offer. This dish is made with a huge, succulent fish head and curry made with chili, lemongrass, onions, belacan, mustard seeds, and onions.

Satay. This dish can be made with chicken, lamb, or beef that is marinated and roasted on a skewer. It is served with a delectable peanut sauce, together with cucumbers, onions, and rice cakes.

Laksa. This is a noodle dish simmered in coconut milk curry, egg, tofu, clams, and shredded chicken. Lemongrass is also added for that citrus kick.

Singaporean food is best explored in the hawker plazas. Do not be fooled by the exterior appearance of such places because food and safety standards in Singapore are world class, evidenced by the thousands of residents and tourists who eat there every day.
