Visiting a country that is included in the list of The World’s 50 Best Cities for Street Food-Obsessed Travelers by CEOWORLD Magazine is incomplete if you don’t try street food in Singapore.
Of course, with the abundance of street food in Singapore, it is impossible to taste all of them in one day. Your stomach will explode if you hold all the street food in Singapore. Therefore, we recommend renting a hotel, one of the most recommended is Resorts World Sentosa – Hotel Michael.
Apart from these hotels, you can find many other Sentosa hotels through the Traveloka application. There are many discounts and other benefits that you can get.
Here are 7 must-try best street food in Singapore:
The first recommendation is popiah, a snack that comes from the Fujian area, China. Unlike the original popiah, in Singapore, this dish is filled with jicama and the skin is not fried. Popiah has a large size, so you can feel full even if you eat just one portion of popiah.
2. Carrot Cake
Although the name is carrot cake, this street food does not contain carrots, but white radish and rice flour. In Singapore, white radish is often called white carrot, so it is not surprising that this food has been nicknamed carrot cake. How to process carrot cake is by steaming, then cutting into cubes, and finally frying with garlic and eggs.
The location of Singapore, which is not far from Indonesia, makes Indonesian specialties quite easy to find, one of which is rojak. Rojak contains various fruits. Then, it is equipped with dry-fried tofu. Similar to rojak in its home country, the fruits and tofu are eaten with peanut sauce.
4. Singapore Chicken Rice
This Singaporean street food is very popular and much sought after by travelers. Singaporean Hainanese, called Singapore Chicken Rice, is made of braised chicken. Having a soft texture and savory taste, it’s no wonder that this food can be found in many Hawker Centers to 5-star restaurants.
