Char Kway Teow
An uncomplicated rice noodle dish traditionally fried with lard, Chinese choy sum and dark soya sauce. Today, it is a mainstay in most Singaporean hawker centres and food places, and is typically served with cockles and bean sprouts.
Fried Oyster Cake
A Chinese-style pancake snack incorporating chives, prawns or oysters as the most common flavours.
Kok Kok Mee
Egg noodles cooked with fishball, and popularly known as trishaw noodles. It derives its name from the sellers hitting 2 bamboos together to signal them selling this iconic noodle.
Named after the rickshaw pullers who plied the streets of old Singapore, this humble creation is made of yellow noodles stewed in a thick pork broth and topped with fried garlic and shallots – a dish the rickshaw pullers relied on as a source of energy.
Hainanese Chicken Rice Balls
Back in the day, fragrant short grain rice were delicately shaped into balls with bare hands before it turned cold, so as to keep it warm for a longer period of time, and to provide convenience to labourers working on plantations during meal times.
And other popular favourites:
BBQ Chicken Wings
Charcoal Fire Toast Bread
Ngor Hiang Platter: Prawn Fritters, Pork Rolls, Pork Liver Rolls, Egg Rolls, Pork Sausage
Bak Kut Teh
Pigtail and Kang Kong Soup
Bird's Nest Drink
Vinegar Pork Trotters
I'll see you at the fest :)
