Must-Try Local Singaporean Dishes
If there is a dish that blends the Chinese and Malay culture together, that should be Laska. A bowl of noodles with curry makes the base of the dish. It is then topped with slices of fishcake and other proteins. Some laksa includes coconut milk while others are just water based.
Where to try Laksa: The Sungei Road laksa.
Price: $33 per bowl
2. Bah Kut Teh
Bah Kut Teh translates to pork bone tea. If you’re wondering if the food is cooked with tea in it, you’re wrong. Surprisingly, tea is not at all included in the recipe. The flavor of the soup is created by boiling the pork till it becomes tender. Then white pepper and garlic are added to give the dish a delicate flavor. The dish is best consumed with a bowl of rice. You can wash it down with some fresh Chinese tea.
Where to try Bah Kut Teh: Outram Park Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha
Price: $7 SGD per bowl
3. Char Kway Teow
Char Kway Teow is a local favorite. This stir-fried delicacy is a dish of flat wide noodles stir-fried with egg, soy sauce, shrimp paste, chili, and Chinese sausage. Char Kway Teow might not be for everybody because of its slightly sweet and not that spicy taste. It also has a soft texture. However, if you do visit Singapore and want to try the local delicacy, you are not disappointed.
Where to try Char Kway Teow: Hill Street Char Kway Teow
Price: $4 per plate
