3 Singaporean Street Foods You Can't Miss

3 Singaporean Street Foods You Can't Miss

I just booked my flight to Singapore, exactly a year after my first visit.

I'm excited to see my friends who I am going to visit, but I might be even more excited for the Singaporean food (sorry guys)

Here are three foods you can find at any food centre in Singapore (there are hundreds) that you absolutely can't miss out on!

Carrot Cake (Chai Tow Kway)

This dish is not your average carrot cake. Actually, "the core ingredients of the cake are rice flour and white radish which some call white carrot. The mixture is steamed, then cut into cubes and fried with garlic, eggs and preserved radish called 'chai poh'." - Yoursingapore.

You can get the white version which is plain, or the black version which has a rich soy sauce.  Both are delicious, but I prefer black.

Roti Prata

*Drool on everything* This is a traditional Indian bread that is everything you could ever dream of.  Similar to na'an but doughier, this prata can be served savory (with curries) or sweet (try banana roti! its just like banana pancakes!)  You can buy this piping hot at any food centre.

This noodle dish is savory spicy goodness and can't be missed.  What might seem like simple fried noodles are actually boiled in prawn stock giving it a unique flavor.  You then can add lime and chili sauce to make this a party in your mouth.  Seriously, don't pass this up.

 

I'd love to know your favorite Singaporean dish!

But what about chili crab?  Bbq stingray? I know I know, there are TONS of Singaporean eats I could mention but these are the three that I think everyone can fall in love with.
