当地美食指南

你或许已经听说:新加坡是美食爱好者的天堂,是名副其实的世界美食大熔炉。漫步于狮城街上、购物商场或民族区,你会看到种类多得令人难以置信的美食在呼唤着你:中国、法国、印度、马来、澳洲、欧亚、峇峇、日本、泰国、意大利、美国、阿根廷、希腊、土耳其……只有你想不到的,没有你吃不到的!也有一些当地特有的美味,如果你想尝试一下其他地方找不到的味道,这些美食绝对值得品尝。

到新加坡旅游,不得不去当地的kopitiam(咖啡店)、嘛嘛档或者小贩中心。在这里,可以尽情享用新加坡人气最高的美食。你可以试试正宗的印度飞饼,这是一种酥脆小薄饼,先将面粉揉细再叠成几层,接着加以煎炸,只需用手将飞饼撕成片,蘸点咖喱就可以吃了。或者你也可以试试咖椰烤吐司(厚厚的新鲜吐司涂着甜甜的椰糖鸡蛋酱)配酱油溏心蛋。接着喝点当地的咖啡、茶或者清甜提神的bandung,享受吃饱喝足的幸福感。

让你想不到的是:海南鸡饭竟然是新加坡另外一道国家级美食。冒着腾腾香气的米饭上铺着片片清蒸鸡肉,还配有一碟鲜黄瓜和一碗鸡汤。而旁边的各种调味料(老抽、鲜姜和辛辣的辣椒蒜蓉酱)则是这道美味的真正秘密。基本上所有当地人都会告诉你,鸡饭是“成也辣椒酱、败也辣椒酱”。

想进行味觉大冒险的可以去逛逛小印度,点一份咖喱鱼头。虽然印度餐馆有供应咖喱鱼头,但是新加坡的大部分印度菜谱里面却找不到这道菜。这道菜是受到中国、孟加拉和马来饮食影响而逐渐形成的,体现了独特的新加坡多元文化。整块鲷鱼头连同多种蔬菜浸在香辣咖喱中烹煮,通常配以蒸饭。

在新加坡旅游时,别忘了尝试缤纷多样的当地甜点、冰淇淋和饮料哦!

You’ve probably already heard this, but Singapore is a true food lover’s paradise: a veritable melting pot of cuisine from around the globe. Just explore any street, shopping mall or ethnic quarter to find an incredible variety of cuisines beckoning, from more local fare like Chinese and Indian to the more exotic French and Brazilian. With the love for food to close to Singaporeans' hearts, of course there are a few dishes unique to us alone. These dishes are definitely worth checking out if you’d like to sample something that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

At the top of your list of things to do in Singapore should be a stopover at a kopitiam, the local version of a coffee house or café. Here, you'll find Singapore's well-loved traditional breakfast: the famed kaya toast set. This meal consists of slices of thick white toast spread with kaya (a sweet jam made from coconut and eggs), soft-boiled or soft-fried eggs, soy sauce, and a cup of local kopi (coffee) or teh (tea). Both extremely affordable and delicious, this comfort meal is easily available at your local Toast Box.

If you're in the mood for something sweeter and colder to combat the heat, nothing beats a refreshing glass of bandung. Easy to pick out thanks to its bright pink colour, bandung is made from rosewater syrup mixed with condensed milk and served icy cold. It's easily found in most local coffee houses.

Another must-try kopitiam breakfast speciality is roti prata: crispy, savoury crepe pancakes made from folded layers of fried flour and traditionally served with curry sauce. This dish is generally eaten with your hands – just tear off pieces of the pancake and dip them into the accompanying curry. Another popular local way to eat prata is brushing them with sugar. 

If you're feeling adventurous, try heading down to Little India and hunting down a dish of fish head curry. A whole snapper head is cooked in a spicy curry with vegetables and eaten with steamed rice. This dish is not found among most Indian cuisines and its origins, in a uniquely Singapore way, are a blend of Chinese, Bengali and Malay influences. 

Hainanese chicken rice is another of Singapore’s national culinary treasures. Slices of steamed chicken are served with hot rice that’s been cooked in a fragrant stock and a freshly-sliced cucumbers and a bowl of chicken broth on the side. The real pop of flavour is found in the condiments served on the side: dark soy sauce, fresh ginger and a tangy, spicy chilli-garlic sauce. As most locals will tell you, it’s the chilli sauce that makes or breaks the chicken rice; try the dish enough times and you’ll come to understand why! Begin the challenge with famous Sin Kee Chicken Rice – right here at Rasapura Masters.
