Food and Singapore are synonymous. For a country that is known for being incredibly expensive in most regards, food in Singapore is cheap, if you know where to go. Whether its pork dumplings, tandoori chicken, noodle soup or even fresh fruit juice, Singapore’s hawker stalls have what you want and for shockingly low prices. No joke, comparing to the cost of beer or almost anything else in the city, hawker stalls are so cheap you somehow feel undeservedly guilty. You might think that the food must be bad or at most mediocre for such a low price but you are so wrong.
Michelin Guides, yes the Michelin that awards stars to the best restaurants in the world visited Singapore and awarded 29 stars. Two those stars went to hawker stalls, Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle and Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle. If you have been to Singapore’s food stalls before you would feel these stars are definitely warranted, if not, you just found out where your destination should be for you next vacation.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that at Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle you can get a chicken and rice dish for just $1.85 USD per plate. If only all Michelin star restaurants were that cheap.
Oh what’s that? You’re booking your ticket now. I’ll leave you to it.
