Makan-Makan in Singapore

Living in Malaysia, we are blessed with many types of different foods from different cultures such as Nasi Lemak, Curry Mee, Bah Kut Teh, Roti Canai, Prawn mee and many more.

A lot of us who went to Singapore will come back with one complaint which is the foods in Singapore is bad/ not tasty. But why? There are also some foods which are good in Singapore.

The Singaporeans prefer foods which are milder in taste, also less salty and less dark soy sauce. Unlike the Singaporeans, we Malaysians love foods which are very strong in taste.

Some of the foods which I had tasted in Singapore and find it not so good is fried carrot cake and fried kuey teow. The Singapore version is sweet, idk why they used sweet sauce to fried them. But as for me I still prefer mine salty. Also maybe because Singaporean are healthier, the foods are less oily. But fried carrot cake and kuey teow will not be successful without oil and most importantly pork lard.

Enough with talking, back to the post, below is some of the foods I had during my last visit. Enjoy!

1. Makansutra Gluttons Bay : Located next to Esplanade Mall Singapore

Singapore Fried Prawn Noodles

This dish is a must-eat every time I visit Singapore. It is the fried version of Penang Prawn Noodles. It is a mixture of yellow noodles and thick rice vermicelli. Best eaten with lime juice and sambal. It is usually served on an opeh leaf  (a form of palm leaf). You guys can try this recipe from

Spaghetti Carbonara and Mushroom Soup

Grilled Pork Belly

The grilled pork belly is very juicy but the skin is a bit hard. It will be better if it is crispier.

That is all we had tried in Makansutra Gluttons Bay. From what I found, one should try the BBQ Sambal Stingray and the Sate.

2. Tori Q Japanese Yakitori stall

Some of the skewered meats from the stall.

Cute illustration of the meat parts.

Tori Q Bento for S$5.60. Japanese steam rice with 4 Japanese Yakitori: 2 chicken, 1 pork, 1 chicken meatballs, seaweeds and their very tasty sauce. I love the meats especially the meatballs also the rice mixed with the sauce. Heaven...

The stall is located in
Takashimaya S.C, Bugis Junction, Paragon, C.K. Tang, Bishan, Tampines Mall, Jurong Point, Ion Orchard and Hougang Mall. All in Singapore. Hopefully they will open a franchise in Malaysia.

3. Lee Wee & Brothers Nasi Lemak

had mention this nasi lemak before in my previous post. I'm just gonna post the pictures up for this entry. They have varieties of lunch box which I'm definitely trying in my next Singapore trip.

4. Bugis Junction's Food Junction

Popiah/ Spring Roll. It has a very strong garlic smell. Prefer popiah by Sisters Crispy Popiah

Some Mango Dessert. Shaved ice with mango cubes, condensed milk and vanilla ice cream. A spoon of this after a walk in Bugis Street is heaven.

Chicken Salmon Teppanyaki. So-so...the sauce tasted abit sweet and salty. 

5. Eating @ Singapore Budget Terminal

A bit different from Malaysia Curry, milder taste, I think they replace coconut milk with fresh milk?

Chicken Shu mai

That's it for my makan journey in Singapore. Ending the post with some cam-whore photos...*blush*

Bye...forgive my nude face. Also 'Follow Me' if you like my blog...♥♥
