I must say I was disappointed by all the Mongolian bbq's I went to in Singapore. Not one of them had a pit big enough to cook a whole Mongolian.

Is there any of your favourite local food that you guys will like to have in your own country, which cannot be found in your country? eg, Satay, chilli crabs, BBQ sliced pork, pineapple tarts, kaya with eggs? :D I am trying to compile a list for future use, please help!



Hi everyone! Thanks for your reply! We are actually doing a project on exporting a food product to a foreign country. A food product in which it does not exist in your country now or there are no close substitutes for it at all. So:
1. Please state your home country in ur reply
2. You may list more than one local food item that you like
3. You may also come up with a completely new dish/food item that you would like to see in your country.

Thank you so much!!!

I have a good mind to lock this thread and block both of your accounts. Please do your surveys somewhere else as we do not entertain them here.

Sms, please chill out bro, you are really taking this forum way too serious at times. :cry:

This thread is about as authentic Singapore style as it can get, talking about (singapore) food.

If it benefits OP, so what.

Did anybody pull your chain? Did you see the thread locked? Speaking out of turn yet again I'd say. [-X

I also like the thread but when the OP & friend start asking for more and more information then it's time to warn them. [-(

Hello,

I hope you don't close down this thread, just wanted to compile a list for my future use next time. I was already using this forum since december and was thinking I am gonna miss Spore food after I become a cabin crew..haha. And intro some good food to foreigner friends since I love travelling and have made many friends overseas. They are all curious about Spore as they have heard much good comments about the food here and some even complained why some local brands have not reached their country.

Mine was the 1st thread, please bear in mind. Look at things from other perspective, and maybe you will get another meaning from the same situation.

You can do what you want to this topic, just don't block me from the cabin crew forum as I may need help from friends there next time. Thanks.

How come the food at the hawker centres is always cold? If I wanted cold food I'd buy a salad .....what's with this I've been told to ask if it's "syo?" I think phonetic Mandarin for 'hot ' ? Mm it's all funny peculiar to me....

I never buy the "ready-made" foods at hawker centres because a) they could have been sitting for ages and b) they are only heated by the lights, it seems.

I always get food that is cooked and fresh....... then it's hot.
