This is not the typical chicken rice you are thinking about, this is the national food of Singapore. Be it a food stall, hawker, luxury hotel or an animal center, this dish is available at every corner in the country. Quite aptly termed as fast food in Singapore, it is the well roasted chicken dipped in soy sauce with garlic and ginger that differentiates it from the common chicken rice available everywhere. The subtlety has made chicken rice ‘poor men’s food’ in Singapore cuisine.

 The carrot cake of Singapore cuisine

This is the most weird, and different carrot cake that you would have ever tasted. You might be thinking why this is not red? That’s because carrot is sandwiched between white flour and layers of cake. To make it a little peppy the sweet dish is slightly tweaked. The carrot cake is cut into pieces and noodles loaded with soy sauce are filled in the void.

10. Ice Kachang

The icy wavy cup of beans and fruit
