Your favourite Singapore Food

Postby samuelnjg » Thu, 06 Jun 2013 4:18 pm

Was working and had this sudden random thought:

what is everyone's favourite Singapore food?

For me, it is the crispy fried oyster omelette. Simply love the way the fried eggs which is always so oily but heavenly!

What about you?

Thanks for the reply sundaymorningstaple. Where would you recommend for good oyster omelet in Singapore? I love the oyster omelette at Newton, served by this old couple. Unfortunately, I can't remember their stall name. Sundaymorning staple, could you recommend a place or two for your favourite oyster omelette too?

Yong Tau Foo (god I have never spelt that before and is probably totally wrong) with soup and yellow noodles and lots of white pepper.

Akimbo, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I am not a big fan of fishball meepok, and i really can't take spicy food. I sweat a lot when I do. Akimbo, could you recommend me a good place to have fish ball mee pok too? Just really love Singapore food and would really love to know more about places for good food. In exchange, let me recommend you a place to have Claypot Rice. At marina square galleria food court, there is a stall there sells really good claypot dishes, i simply love their Claypot Rice. It is very fragrant and the chicken is boneless. No regret trying!

Katbh, thanks for the reply. The spelling is right. you are referring to the stall where you are able to pick your own ingredients? I tried that before, love it with the sweet sauce. But Yong Tau Foo sometimes can be a little bland for me. It is very healthy though, i will eat it occasionally, especially if I had a sinful buffet over the wkends.

Katbh, I am guessing you are a rather health conscious person?

Not sure of the name of the stall, but it's about half way down the right side row of stalls at Chomp-Chomp. (I've not been there in the past half years or so though - but he's been there for donkey's years).

Yep getting older so have to be careful - that is why I steer clear of Laksa (most of the time), pepper crab (most of the time) ....

I eat chili crab as often as i can get it. I eat whole chili padi when I do fried lice (but now I don't do much rice if I can help it - rice/noodles/bread and potatoes will kill you.) Love sambals as well. But I guess when I get old I'll have to watch out then. :lol:

Ahhh, but so are rice, potatoes & grains (breads/noodles) vegetables, but they are extremely BAD for you. The killer white starches.

I just try to eat more greens and take less oily food to be eat more healthily. Of course, I exercise when I can. Doing light jogging can go a long way in helping us stay healthy:)

But we should never stop eating good food!

Punggol Fried Noodle at East Coast Park Food Village (not Punggol!)

Minced Meat Mee Pok at Bedok North Food Centre

Sliced Beef Hor Fun at Ghim Moh Food Centre

Paper-wrapped Chicken at Jurong East (near Canadian International School)

Chicken Rice at Wee Nam Kee at Thomson Road (opposite Novena Catholic Church)

Hwa Nam Dim Sum at Upper Thomson Road (opposite Ritz Apple Strudel)

Holland Village XO Fish Head Bee Hoon behind The Star mall (also known as New Creation Church or Star Performing Art Centre). There is the XO crab version but I wonder how it will taste! :o
