  • Singapore is truly blessed when it comes to dishes. In fact, there are a lot of foods in the country and this is because of the invasion of many immigrants such as Malays, British, Chinese and Indians. During their stay in the country they leave some of their recipes which are now being followed by many Singaporeans and are served in all food houses in the city.


    One of the favorite foods of every Singaporean is Rendang – a dish that is closely similar to curry that is made from beef and mixed with different spices and coconut milk. The ingredients are being boiled until the meat of the beef will become tender and the sauce or its gravy is absorbed. Aside from beef meat, other meats like lamb and chicken can also be a great ingredient to the dish.


    For its meat coating, spices such as galangal, ginger, lemongrass, garlic, chilies and turmeric are only few of the many spices that will be used for the spice mixture. On the other hand, coconut milk is an added flavor of Rendang but the preparation of coconut milk will take several hours. For a much tastier Rendang, you can left it overnight so that the mixture would fully suck up into the meat.

    In Singapore, it is a tradition that Rendang is served as a food to respect and honor the guest. If you want one, plan ahead of time because it is very difficult to find Rendang because it is rarely found in the country.

  • Originally, Roti prata was a kind of food that came from India and Pakistan. It is said that the mentioned countries developed the original ingredients for Roti Prata after it became a Singaporean favorite. Ideally, Roti Prata is a combination of two words: Roti which means “bread” and Prata which means “flat”.


    This is a recipe that is made of delicate and sweet dough that is typically served with a plain curry or locally known as dhal. In addition, it has different toppings of sweet-flavored goods such as chocolate, banana, cheese, ice cream and any of your desired sweets. In Singapore, it is a perfect food in the morning. However, it is a must-try during dinner. Usually, Roti Prata – as what is practiced by the locals – is munched with a few sprinkle of sugar to bring out its delightful flavor.

    Remember that Roti Prata is a sweet dish. So, expect a lip-smacking and finger licking feeling after tasting its delicious taste. Forget about eating it using spoon and fork because it is much better if you eat this using your bare hands. Dip it into a fish-based curry and in that way, you will understand why it is described as a finger-licking pancake.


    In different food stalls in the beautiful city of Singapore, there are also distinctive textures and flavors of Roti Prata. However, its crunchy and chewy taste is present all throughout Singapore. Also, you don’t have to worry if you are having a hard time looking for it because all Singaporeans are proud with their dishes.
