Singapore Local Food

What do you have first in your mind when you hear Singaporean food? My mum’s friend who lives in Singapore surprised us with so many varieties of food. 20141227_104022

Hainanese Rice 20141227_104110

Chicken Rice. The Hainanese rice is rich in flavour, very lovely, one of the best Hainanese rice I’ve ever tasted.  20141227_104357

Laksa – the signature, most recommended menu by mum’s friend. The laksa broth is very nice, but not enough spicy for me. One thing I don’t like is the clams. However, according to my mum’s friend, it is hard to find fresh clams in Singapore, it is seasonal. 20141227_104231 20141227_104657

Fish Ball Hor Fun Soup. The fish balls are fresh and bouncy. I like the packaging with colourful plastic straps.

Chow Mein. Not my favourite type of noodle. 20141227_104207

Fried Dough Fritters – you tiao (cakue), butterfly bun and spring roll. I am only familiar with the taste of you tiao (cakue), and this is my first time trying a butterfly bun, which is actually made of the same dough with addition of sugar. The spring roll consists of turnip or jicama only, nothing else, but it doesn’t have pungent smell like Lumpia Semarang. Sorry, I didn’t take close up picture of the spring roll. The spring roll is also known as Fried Popiah. 20141227_104246
