Singapore Street Food
For the food lovers
One of the best ways to enjoy the food of any country is to try the various varieties of food that are offered on their streets. Most of this food are simple but have a unique touch of the country’s culinary trends. These differ from every possible dish that is served in a hotel. Starting from the location, which would be mostly the outside; the presentation, taste and even nutrition, would definitely be different from what you eat find at the restaurants, coffee shops and other eateries while on vacation.
Singapore is one of the top travel destinations for all who would love to spend a less costly but enjoyable vacation. This Asian country is popular for its amusement parks, shopping and other unique attractions and is considered as one of the cleanest countries in the world.
Due to such cleanliness and hygiene, the visitors to Singapore would not get the opportunity to experience true street food. Even though there was a time in the country where streets were crowded with vendors selling various delicacies to all that passed by; the streets of Singapore now misses that sight.
Still there are special places created within the country where anyone would get the opportunity to taste these yummy treats that were once sold on roads. Also known as hawker stalls, anyone who visits one of these places would definitely be bonded with one or more dishes that would be truly Singaporean. If you are a traveller definitely visit one of the hawker centres and satisfy your taste buds with a fine range of mouth-watering cuisine available.
Hokkien Mee is one dish that one should try, because you would not find it anywhere else in the world. Hokkien Mee is similar to a seafood pasta dish, but the noodles are fried with seafood stock to give a different taste. While at Chinatown visitors would get the opportunity to enjoy types of native Chinese street food that would have the original taste and quality. Teochew Street Mushroom Minced Meat Noodles is considered as one of the best minced meat noodle dishes served here. Hai Seng Ah Balling, Leng Heng BBQ Seafood and Geylang Lor 29 Fried Hokkien Mee are some of the other mouth-watering delicacies that one would come across. If you wish to enjoy the sea breeze while having your favourite hawker food, the best place that you could go to is the East Coast Lagoon Food Centre. The swaying palms and the cool breeze would add more flavour to your overall experience.
While in this overwhelming Asian paradise one of the best accommodation options is to go for apartments in Singapore. Somerset Orchard Singapore is one of the best serviced apartments on orchard road Singapore that you could come across. The mesmerising location, the convenience, privacy and cosiness of these apartments would make your stay a truly memorable one.
