One of my favorite countries to visit is Singapore. When we went to Maldives, we chose the route via Singapore. This year, when we took the Siem Reap–Phuket–Penang trip, we ended it with Singapore. The main reason for this is that we will visit JT’s sister who is based in Singapore. Second, there are many flights going back to Cebu from this country. Third, it has various connecting flights to different countries like Maldives, Penang or Kuala Lumpur. This travel blog is for those who have already visited Singapore many times and is looking for new places and new food to explore.
1.) Little India, Singapore
For those who want to explore Indian food, the best place to go is at Little India.
We tried Allauddin’s Briyani at Tekka Market and even though i do not fancy spicy food, it is one of the best Indian Dishes i ever tried. There are a lot of food choices at Zhujiao Centre.
We had a sumptuous authentic Nepalese and North Indian food feast at Gurkha Palace.
2.) Michelin Starred Restaurants in Singapore
Liao Fan Hawker Chan
We took off early to avoid long queues at Hawker Chan. It is the world’s first Michelin-starred street food stall.
We ordered the Soya Sauce Chicken Rice, the cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world. It was originally priced at 2 SGD but now it costs 4.80 SGD.
While you are eating, they play the video of how this hawker stall rose popularity after having awarded with a Michelin star.
They have now 3 branches in Singapore:
- 18 Tai Seng Street (11:00am – 9:00pm)
- 78 Smith Street (11:00am – 9:00pm)
- Hawker Stall Blk 335 Smith Street, Chinatown Food Complex (10:30am – 7:00pm Mon Tue Thurs Fri; 8:30am – 7:00pm Sat Sun; Closed on Wed)
If you will eat at Tai Seng, a few steps away from Hawker Chan is Tsuta Ramen. They are known for their soba. They would prefer to call their ramen as soba. It was a relatively small place and when you go inside the restaurant, you will be assisted by a staff to order at the machine.
You will then be seated and the soba will be created in front of you.
A few steps away from Tsuta is another Michelin-starred restaurant, Tim Ho Wan but since we were very full already having eaten in 2 restaurants already we did not eat there.
I am a big fan of Liao Liao. It is a frozen yogurt with an option of several toppings. They are already available in Manila but i don’t know, Singapore Liao Liao tastes yummier than in Manila.
A cafe that offers more than 160 Hongkong style hot and cold desserts.
If you fancy tarts made with lightly sweetened cream topped with fresh fruits, then Fruit Paradise is a perfect dessert shop for you. All fruit tarts are hand crafted by their Japanese Patissiers. We tried this fruit tart at Fruit Paradise Plaza Singapura.
4.) Hawker Stalls at Bukit Panjang
The Hawker at Bukit Panjang is small compared to hawkers near the city but their food is equally good and tasty as any other hawker stalls.
I never miss passing by at Ikea whenever i am in Hongkong or Singapore not because of shopping but because of their cafe. Their Swedish meatballs is to die for!
The popularity of Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin of Singapore started about two years ago. The drawback of craving for this is that it will take you two weeks to order. The most famous brand is Irvin’s and followed by The Golden Duck.
Uncle Saba’s Poppadoms Lentil Chips comes in various flavors. This healthy snack is originally from Malaysia but i first tasted it at Singapore (Tekka Market). It is Gluten-free, cholesterol free, vegan, has no transfat and no preservatives.
7.) Happy hour at Merlion Park.
Looking forward to visit The Lion City again to explore more of their food and culture!♥
