Meat Bone Tea

Some people believe that the dish was made to revive Chinese coolies back in the day. Others say that this dish was born when a poor noodle seller cooked the dish to feed a famished beggar. So, forth its beginnings may be this simple mix is much-loved between those who’ve tried it and is even available at some of the hotels in Serangoon Road Singapore.

Chilli or Pepper Crabs

Whether you eat it with a sweet sauce or black pepper sauce this dish tastes simply crabulous! It tastes even more fantastic when eaten with fried mantous dipped in the thick sauce! Find this pet dish even at upmarket restaurants at hotels like Park Hotel Farrer Park.

Fried Carrot Cake

A delicacy which includes eggs, chai poh (preserved radish) and white radish flour cake (the radish looks much like a carrot, thus the name). One option for the dish might be sweet sauce and the crusty version where lumps of cake are served.

Wanton Mee

This dish comes from Hong Kong; still, the Singaporean version with a few twists tastes great too. Noodles are served dry with a bowl of soup as a side, a bit of sweet sauce is stirred into the noodles and can be eaten with chilli or tomato sauce added to the mix.
