Gastronomic Adventures in Singapore: Hawker Centers and Delicious Food!

In every travel, one of the best things that we can do is experience the culture of the locals. Their places of interest, their sights, and their languages. And what better way to do that than by discovering it through their food! 

On my latest trip to Singapore this year, we went on a Foodie Trip! The food is good and the best ones are from Hawker Centers, or the country's version of street food.

It was so flavorful and what a gastronomical adventure it was!

At Bedok Interchange Hawker Center, we got this Kaya Toast. It differed from the usual toast, they used buns which brought with it a different experience. It complemented the Kaya Spread. The soft boiled brought out its flavors and the bread enhanced it more.

We visited the Complex Food Centre in Chinatown for the Hawker Center on the second floor there. And we got these beauties: traditional Chinese food that's crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

The Hawker Chan stall had a long queue as the chef who was awarded the Michelin Star was cooking there. So we just had to try. And woah! Saucy and tender chicken meat with rice and braised peanuts on the side! It was awesome! You gotta try it there!

We complemented it with Milo Drinks: The Milo C and Milo Dinosaur! I love the gooey sweetness that comes with the classic Milo taste, in both hot and cold.

Milo C and Milo Dinosaur drinks for that extra sweetness! Yum!

For dessert, we got Oreo Soymilk Drink. What's amazing was that the soy was made fresh in the kitchen. 

Ice Blended Oreo Soymilk from Gogo Beanz. This gotta be one of the best soy drinks I ever had!

Next stop was the Maxwell Hawker Center for an afternoon snack. It was a new experience for me to eat hot dessert. It was sweet and the temperature made the sweetness pop up even more. We complemented them with a Sugarcane and Rose Milk drink.

Sugarcane Drink was slightly sweet and the Rose Milk Drink was sweeter! :D

At Bugis, we got more desserts! While shopping for souvenirs, we stopped by to eat Apam Balik pancake. It was a crispy pancake and I got the one in Peanut+Chocolate+Milk. Paired with a mango drink at the nearby stall and it burst with real fruity goodness!

Apam Balik Pancake is the crispiest dessert I have had that day.

At Simei Kopitiam, we got Fried Rice with Pork Chops for dinner and Black Sesame Pancake for dessert (yes! 'coz there's always room for more desserts!). The pancake may not look much but it was so good! I didn't expect it and I am happy to have tried it! 

Soft pork chops paired with savory rice is perfect for dinner!

Black Sesame Pancake from Munchies Pancake. I didn't expect it to be soooo good!

Hawker Centers are a major landmark of Singapore. Each place is a melting pot of cultures, and all of them fused together in the food of the country. 

Try them out on your next visit to Singapore!
