Into local food ...

Post by Guest123 » Thu, 21 Apr 2005 10:08 am

I'm working now since more than a months in Singapore, and still dont know what to order at the hawkers centers. Maybe i need a crash course.

Someone like to show me the variety of the local cuisine?

hmmm, here are some other things you cld order..

-- wanton noodles
-- minced pork noodles
-- char siew rice
-- carrot cake
-- popiah
-- duck rice
-- fish ball noodles
-- chicken rice

just some of my favs! ;)

usually most hawker centers will have one noodle stall, one rice stall, one indian stall, one malay stall etc...

takashimaya has a nice hawker center and near you also -- it's just a little bit pricier than most, but the food is v gd.


go on a free food tour

Why don't you go on a food tour with the people from Beetlebox Youth Hostel. They do it every Thursday evening. You just pay for what you eat and it is great way to learn about Singapore food. Anyone is welcome to join their tours.
