Local Food in Singapore

Further to my last post on the Local Food in Singapore, in response to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme – Local, I am sharing more local food that are available at the hawker centres, coffee shops and food courts in Singapore. These pictures were also taken by my friend, Michael Lee.

Following is a typical local breakfast set that comprised of a cup of coffee aka Kopi or tea aka Teh, toast bread with kaya and butter aka Kaya Toast, and two half boiled eggs.  We usually take the half boiled eggs with dark sauce and pepper.


Hainanese Chicken Rice set typically comprises of boiled chicken (picture shows roast chicken), fragrant rice cooked with chicken stock, vegetable as side dish and a bowl of soup. There are many places that serve nice chicken rice with one of the most expensive chicken rice being served at Chatter Box at Mandarin Orchard Hotel.


Hokkien Mee is fried egg noodles and rice noodles in fragrant stock made from fresh shrimp and dried prawns, as well as pork or chicken.  I like the Hokkien Mee from Zion Road Hawker Centre and Tiong Bahru Hawker Centre.


Wrapping up this post with Satay, a Malay dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat served with a sauce. We usually go to Lau Pa Sat (direct translation means Old Market) at Raffles Quay or Satay by the Bay at Gardens by the Bay for satay in the evening. Do also try the grilled stingray and chicken wings when you are there.


The food mentioned above are available in both Singapore and Malaysia though the way of cooking or serving may be different. I hope you like my posts on some of our Local Food in Singapore, giving you ideas on what and where to try them.

Looking at the food, makes me hungry.  Time to think about what and where for dinner. 🙂

  1. Looks really delicious 🙂 wish I could find your post earlier. I was in Singapore last year and I made a mistake by eating the chicken rice in a random restaurant in Marina Bay Sand, not tasty at all 😦
