Here are some of best food in Singapore
1. Chicken Rice
Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice @ Maxwell Food Centre
One of the most reviewed hawker stall in Singapore. It’s winning formula is a combination of fragrant and fluffy rice that adsorb the chicken stock and wonderful chilli and garlic sauce. Well, folks, that is the rice and we have not talked about the tender chicken serve with wonderful secret sauce which includes soya sauce, sesame oil and ??? Tian Tian serves one of the best but being one of the most popular dishes in Singapore, there are many good chicken rice stalls in Singapore which we will cover in the coming months.

Opening hours: 10am-8pm (closed on Mondays)
2. Chili Crab
The Chilli crab at Mellben is one of the best in Singapore. You can always get very big crabs in thick, spicy and slightly sweet chilli sauce. Just request a less spicy plate if you cannot take the high level of spiciness. The Claypot crab bee hoon (also known as claypot crab vermicelli soup) is another must try, it is a noodle soup dish with milky broth with rich aroma and sweetness from crabs. One of the favourites modern twist to this dish is the butter crab. It is coated with buttery, sweet and slightly spicy sauce and the combination of seafood and butter is awesome!

Opening hours: 5pm-10.30pm
3. Nasi Lemak
Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak
Selera Rasa makes nasi lemak close to perfection. The basmati rice is fragrant and goes well together with the sambal chilli. The chicken wing by itself is one of the best in Singapore, perfect crispiness with a fragrant delicious taste. The all-star items here are the chicken wing, basmati rice and the sambal chilli. Their crispy ikan bilis (deep fried anchovies) are pretty good as well. This means that you would have to order either the Chicken Wing Meal, Full House, Royal Flush or Royal Rumble.

Opening hours: 7am-5pm
328 KATONG LAKSA
One of the best Laksa in Singapore, many locals wouldn’t look beyond East Coast Road. It doesn’t help that beating celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay in a 2013 cooking showdown has made 328 Katong Laksa extra famous. What made it so special to its fans and curious foodies is its extremely delicious and aromatic coconut based curry soup. The gravy is a balance in taste and texture coming from all of the ingredients such as coconut milk, chilli, dried shrimps, and herbs. One of the nice add on is the grilled-in-banana-leaves spicy fish cake is the perfect appetizer or side dish to go with the creamy laksa. The aromatic Otah will whet your appetite for an intensive flavour noodle soup.
Address: 328 Katong Laksa, 51 East Coast Road, Singapore 428770
Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm
5. Roti Prata
The Roti Prata House
The Roti Prata House serve a large variety of pratas . From Durian to Ice Cream prata. The Ice Cream Prata is indeed a sight to behold. Not presented mediocrely with a scoop of ice cream plopped onto a plain prata, The Roti Prata House does theirs uniquely. They do it with a thin, crispy prata moulded into a cylindrical shape encasing SCOOPS of ice cream, drizzled with chocolate sauce, topped with whipped cream, then sprinkled with colourful rice. The hot-cold contrast is lovely and coupled with how the crispy prata pairs with the creamy ice cream, you’ll love it.
As for the plain pratas, if you like them super crispy, then you’ll like the ones here. One gripe would be that they are a little heavy handed on the oil.
Address: 246 Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574370
Opening hours: 7am – 4am.
6. Kway Chap (Asian Teochew Dish, Served with fishcake, Pork in soy sauce broth)
Garden Street Kway Chap
They prepared their food with their heart. The unlikely turn of events behind the Garden Street Kway Chap saga—potential commercial pilot adopts hawker life—elucidates the classic case of hawker legends transcending generations. According to The Straits Times, when Jason Koh first took over the reins of his father’s prized Garden Street stall, he even had to awkwardly endure a bout of reduced confidence from the regulars. They serve really clean viscera and a silky smooth bowl of kway (rice noddles) paired with a wonderful herbal stock.
Address: Serangoon Garden Market and Food Centre #01-21, 49A Serangoon Garden Way, Singapore 559944
Operating hours: 8am – 3pm (Closed on Mondays)
7. Claypot Rice
132 Claypot Rice
The Claypot Chicken Rice is our choice. There’s a generous serving of tender chicken chunks and savoury Chinese sausages in the rice, and you can top up a dollar for salted fish or salted egg yolk. There’s a good balance of sweet and salty flavours, mix well with the dark soya sauce and oil so that the entire dish gets evenly coated, the charred bits of rice that were stuck to the bottom of the claypot is hard to resist.
Address: #01-132, Old Airport Road Food Centre, 51 Old Airport Road, Singapore 390051
Opening Hours: 12pm – 10pm. (Closed on Tuesdays).
8. Lor Mee
Xin Mei Xiang Lor Mee
This lor mee (noodles) has won the hearts of many due to the quality ingredients used – especially the fresh fish. The lor mee comes with stewed meat, garlic, vinegar, red pepper, and eggs. The combination is perfect! It might not have as many ingredients as the lor mees from other lor mee stalls, but the gravy is lighter and smoother, which is why we like it a lot.
Address: #01-116, Old Airport Road Food Centre, 51 Old Airport Road, Singapore 390051
Opening Hours: 6am – 2pm, or till sold out. Closed on Thursdays.
9. Fried Kway Teow
Dong Ji Fried Kway Teow
Be warned, waiting can be more than 30 minutes during lunchtime, as the owner fries each plate of char kway teow individually. He has more than 4 decades of experience in frying char kway teow. It’s no wonder the noodles are well coated with a spicy kick and an eggy goodness. The dish also has enough wok hei – simply hits all the right spots!
Address: #01-138, Old Airport Road Food Centre, 51 Old Airport Road, Singapore 390051
Opening Hours: 8am – 1pm.
10. Bak Chor Mee (Minced Pork Noodles)
Seng Kee Bak Chor Mee
Seng Kee Bak Chor Mee has been at the Serangoon Gardens Market & Food Centre for the last few years. While the Bak Chor Mee is really awesome, do consider a bowl of delicious fish maw soup as well. Simple decadent goodness. The bak chor mee is very good. The noodles are cooked until al dente and each bowl of soup is so tasty and full of flavours. Boiled with pork bones for hours, dried sole fish (ti poh) was added for extra depth and umami. The fish maw soup is supered, it is prepared with premium quality fish maw which has soaked all the essence from the soup. Each bowl of $10 fish maw soup also includes pork slices, minced pork and braised mushrooms.
