Food Trip Singapore Part 2

Part 2 of our Singapore Food Fair brings you some of the food we were able to taste. Not much, for we have eaten with our friends before we visited the fair :) We chose the food that we have not tried before (except for the noodles), that we do not usually find here in Manila...




These grilled sausages were so tasty and juicy. They come in different flavors - if I remember right, they have three flavors, selling at S$1 each. The peppered sausages stood out for they were really full of peppers. You cannot taste the meat anymore :) Daughter loved it, nevertheless. Another one was cheese sausage, and it was super cheesy, one bite and the hot cheese spurted out. The other was plain meat sausage. These two were very tasty. We went back for seconds :)




I simply call these omelets. But they have a fancy name for these omelet (which I forgot... he he...) They also come in three flavors, but we chose the salmon omelet (the ones on the left where the seller/vendor was cracking an egg.) The base is made mostly of cabbages. These were cooked right on the spot, so they come piping hot.



This is the salmon omelet, served in the ever-convenient, but definitely not earth-friendly styrofoam... all chopped up into bite-size pieces. Actually, it was nothing fantastic. It tastes like... well... egg, fish and veggies... plus a dash of mayonnaise... It was a bit disappointing actually. I was expecting a different exotic flavor, like a special herb used or something... :(




Ahhh... the Laksa. When you come to Asia, specially Singapore and Malaysia, you really have to taste their laksa. This is a spicy noodle soup dish made with coconut milk and various spices. This stall sells the laksa with different toppings - chicken, prawns and I think one with no meat topping at all. But the noodles used are the same, and the soup base is the same. The vendor simply laddles the same soup to different bowls.



We chose the prawn laksa. For the price, he only included one piece of prawn per bowl. :) The vendor was thoughtful not to include the chilli directly into the noodle soup so that we can have the choice to put in the amount of heat that we can take. This one is soo yummy, it is making me hungry just to remember and type about it... :)




Hubby bought this "Mee Goreng" (fried noodles) from another stall that I was not able to take a good picture. (Sorry, it was really crowded. It was kind of hard to jostle for a space to take picture when many people are queing and waiting for their food...) This looks like our regular pancit canton (stir fry noodles) But it is not. It has a different flavor, and quite spicy but very yummy. I detected a little curry, a little chilli, soy sauce, of course...


Up next are the food we bought to take back home... :)

I am hungry too looking at all these mouth-watering food! Btw, there is another Singapore food fair coming up end of this month. Will you be here? ;)

You mentioned that the base of the salmon omelet was cabbage; is it similar to a Japanese okonomiyaki, then? (I love those griddle-cooked cabbage pancakes!)

And your pictures of Chinese pies, mee goreng, and laksa (oh my, yes: the laksa) brought back memories of spending childhood summers in Singapore and KL with my grandparents. *happy sigh*

Since I never been to any food fair in Singapore, I have to thank you for sharing. At least, I have been to one food fair....errrr.....virtually :D

I love laksa, had it over 20 years ago in Singapore. They had the best laksa IMHO. Nowadays I make it using prepared pastes which are almost as good.

Wow.. I would have LOVED to join those food fairs!!

Soli Deo Gloria said...

Thanks for dropping by, Mikky!

Yes, Ivy! I was drooling as I typed... he he...

I wish my tummy is bottomless,too Noobcook! and I wish the food would not show up on the bulges of our tummy and thighs... :D

Soli Deo Gloria said...

Hi Food-4-Tots! I wish I can attend the coming food fair... but I do not travel that often... :D

Thanks Midge! You're right! These griddle cooked omelets were called okonomiyaki! I just forgot the name when I wrote this post... better write these things down in the future... You're very fortunate you have spent some time in different countries and were able to experience their different cultures and food!!

Soli Deo Gloria said...

Hi Tigerfish! It is surprising you have not attended a food fair! Maybe because you can already cook these food yourself, you do not need to join the crowd and the heat :)

Hi Oggi! I also tried to cook laksa here using a ready-made paste mix... just to taste it once in a while... :)

Hi Galatians! The food is great and authentic! But I warn you, this food fair I attended (and Tigerfish confirmed it) was really quite crowded. It was not even dinner time! :)

Soli Deo Gloria said...

Hello Hyperbaby! Tasting each countries' authentic food is something we look forward to on our every trip! :)
