The dish also contains dried seaweed, tofu, tomato and a dash of XO Cognac. If you are in the mood for some chicken, try the Ayam Penyet, which translated to smashed chicken in Malay. Singapore chilli crab is a must try if you are sampling Singaporean street fare.

Sup Tulang

A left over’s soup that has taken Singapore by storm – Sup Tulang is basically shank bone boiled down with tomato paste and spices; best mopped up with bits of baguette. A delicious concoction Sup Tulang was born when street side kiosks ran out of Indian style mutton curry broth.


Let’s not forget about dessert! If you have a sweet tooth after all the spicy dishes you’ve tried, try Tau Huey, a tofu pudding, served with delicious sweet syrup. If you are craving a nuttier flavour, try Tang Yuen in peanut soup.
