Singapore is undoubtedly a foodie paradise and what better way to celebrate the birthday month of our little red dot than to indulge in our very own local cuisine! If there’s one thing that unifies and strengthens our bonds, it’s food for sure. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of local food spots that offer authentic and delectable Singapore dishes we know, love and crave.
Some of these places may take you into farther ends of our sunny island and that’s where a car comes in handy. At ETHOZ, we offer both cheap car rental packages so you, your friends and family can enjoy feasting together, wherever!
1. Killiney Kopitiam
While this is a commonly-known franchise, Killiney Kopitiam is arguably one of the best Kaya Toast chains in Singapore (just check out any listicle online). It’s the second-largest kaya toast chain with over 20 outlets nationwide, but netizens have heavily recommended visiting the original store at 67 Killiney road for the best dining experience!
Killiney’s kaya has a unique differential component that makes it stand out amongst its competitors. It has the right amount of sweetness and the generous portion of eggs in the mixture makes it a brilliant choice for egg lovers. The slab of sliced butter sandwiched between the toasts melts perfectly in your mouth with that amazing kaya. Even though the toast is much thicker than those found in Ya Kun, it is crispy on the outside and soft and smooth on the inside.
Address: 67 Killiney Rd, Singapore 239525
2. 328 Katong Laksa
If you don’t already know, 328 Katong Laksa is the popular laksa stall that defeated Gordon Ramsay in the SingTel Hawker Heroes Challenge back in 2013. 328 Katong Laksa has been long touted by locals as one of the best laksas in Singapore.
What sets it apart from other laksa stalls is that the prawns are fresh and crisp and the gravy is the perfect representation of balance in taste and texture as all the ingredients such as coconut milk, herbs, prawns and chilli come together in this sweet and luxuriously savoury broth.
Address: 216 East Coast Road, Singapore 428914
3. 58 Minced Meat Noodle (Taman Jurong Market & Food Centre)
Bak Chor Mee is a must-have staple food for all the Singapore foodies. What we really love about 58 Minced Meat noodles is that their portion is super generous and the noodles have just enough bounce for the delicious bite.
And let’s not forget the pork liver, which is the star of the show. It’s extremely tender and blanched to perfection! Finishing it off is the sambal chilli which coats the noodles with its umami-packed kick. Even though the stall is currently run by the second generation, the taste evokes that same sense of nostalgia as before.
Address: 3 Yung Sheng Rd, #03-150 Taman Jurong Food Centre, Singapore 618499
4. Song Fa Ba Kut Teh
Song Fa’s peppery bowl of pork rib soup is one of the best in town and has become a household name in Singapore today–did we mention they’ve even been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand?
Song Fah Bak Kut Teh proves that simplicity can sometimes be all you need. The clear broth boasts a balance of garlic and pepper flavours that meld perfectly with the slight porcine sweetness from the tender meat that falls right off the bone. The broth, though flavourful, is light enough that it keeps you coming back for a second (or even third) bowl–fortunately, they offer free refills! For that classic dining experience, our favourite outlet to visit is the famed one at New Bridge Road.
Address: 133 New Bridge Rd, #01-04, Singapore 059413
5. The Roti Prata House
The Roti Prata House is one of the most well-known supper spots in Singapore and invites the crowds even on weekdays. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try something unique, you can try their Milo Prata, chocolate cheese Prata, or even their pineapple cheese Prata. Their Prata is amazingly crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and taste even better when dunked in their sambal chilli and curry sauces.
Address: 246 Upper Thomson Rd, Singapore 574370
6. Geylang Lorong 29 Fried Hokkien Prawn Mee
When it comes to searching for the best fried Hokkien Prawn Mee in Singapore, locals don’t have to look far beyond East Coast Road. Unlike the usual plate of Hokkien Mee, this one uses charcoal fire to give this addictive dish its signature smoky flavour.
If you’re a seafood lover, you’ll definitely want to give this a try as the fresh prawns served with each plate come in generous portions, and have that perfect crunch and sweetness you get from fresh shellfish.
Address: 396 East Coast Road, Singapore 428994
