LuxeGetaways - - Family Travel Singapore -

Food is one thing that unites the oth­er­wise mul­ti­cul­tural na­tion, and it is so im­por­tant to the Sin­ga­porean way of life that, "Have you eaten?" is a com­mon way to greet peo­ple. While the list of must-try food is long, these are among the most pop­u­lar.

Hainanese Chicken Rice: Poached chicken ac­com­pa­nies rice cooked in chicken stock and is usu­ally paired with a small bowl of chicken stock and a va­ri­ety of small condi­ments (chili sauce, fresh gin­ger and/or dark soy sauce).

Chili Crab: It is very com­mon to eat this pop­u­lar and not-too-spicy dish of mud crabs stir fried in a slightly thick tomato and chili sauce by hand.

Noo­dles: Try Char Kway Teow, flat rice noo­dles stir-fried in dark soy sauce with prawns, cock­les, beansprouts, chives and of­ten in­cludes Chi­nese sausage with a mix­ture of other veg­eta­bles.

Sa­tay: This kid-friendly fa­vorite typ­i­cally fea­tures chicken, beef, mut­ton or tripe on a skewer; and is usu­ally served with a side of peanut sauce, cu­cum­ber and onion.
