We heard you want to learn more about the delicacies in Singapore? For those who are up for some food adventures, you must try these 3 dishes that will excite your palate!
- Laksa (Spicy coconut noodle soup)
If you are game for some local spicy food, we do recommend our local spicy coconut noodle soup, also known as Laksa. The highlight for this dish is in its thick broth brewed from spices, dried shrimp and coconut milk, topped with ingredients such as cockles, prawns, hard boiled egg and fishcake. Some vendors offer a selection of noodles but we prefer the traditional thick vermicelli as these tend to soak up the goodness of the broth. Laksa is best eaten on a rainy day as a comfort food.

3. Char Kway Teow (Fried Dark sauce Noodle)
Stir-fried over high heat using the fragrance from lard, this delicacy is a mixture of flat rice noodles and yellow wheat noodles combined with ingredients such as bean sprout, fish cake, Chinese sausage and egg in dark and sweet sauce.
