WHY THIS TOUR?

Singapore is renowned for its food and the multicultural vibe that flows through the Lion City has certainly contributed to this global reputation. The city state has abundant hawker centres where a wide selection of delicious noodles, rice dishes, curries and desserts are on offer at extremely competitive prices. The pinnacle of food hawker culture is Liaw Fan which is squeezed between friendly competitors in the Chinatown Complex.

Chef Chan Hon Meng’s supremely high culinary standard has reached the higher echelons of food culture – his sublime chicken rice dish has been rewarded with a coveted Michelin Star. It is this 3-hour walking tour that brings out the multitudinous offering of food that will leave you spoilt for choice – from Peranakan to Chinese, Malay to Indian, fusion and more. Just like any other destinations, the city has its own unique set of offerings that differentiates itself, which needs to be explored.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Exquisite Experiences in Culinary Singapore

11:00 - 14:00

Guests are warmly welcomed by our guide at your booked accommodation in Singapore. For the coming 3 hours, joined by your English speaking foodie, it will be a captivating journey that captures the importance of the Singapore food culture. This authentic epicurean delight of Lion City proportions starts from the moment you leave your hotel lobby for your culinary discovery.

Singapore’s melting pot of cultures, nationalities and traditions has had a positive impact on the development of its food culture. Ample venues of a fine dining level have amped up the city state as a Southeast Asian force to be reckoned with without staying true to its roots. The diverse food route you’re about to embark on, after discussing your preferences, commences with heading towards Chinatown. Heritage prevails here when it comes to wok-prepared noodles to grilled meat, with the sometimes overwhelming scent of the King of Fruits – the Durian -, overtaking the smells and sizzles of streets stall preparation. The concept of ‘if you do not try, you do not know’ certainly puts even avid food aficionados to this pungent test.

Next on the menu – Baozi; a flour-based, steamed bun with a variety of fillings brings back part of ancestral China. It may not look like this once you see these steaming buns displayed along the street side stalls, but Baozi is considered as a breakfast staple in the Chinese culture. It is a given that both the vegetarian and meat-filled versions are up for try.

Your food journey continues with a short walk to the Chinatown Complex which houses one of the main hawker centres in Singapore. These food centres are the heart and soul of the food scene as prices are considered cheap and where locals enjoy their food and mingling together. It is a cornucopia of stalls where sharing a meal with colleagues and friends never seems to stop.

It may take some patience, but knowing that you can officially grab a bit of an official Michelin-rated for under SGD5, it is so worth queuing up for it. Liao Fan by Chef Chan Hong Meng serves Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodles with recipe specially curated since 1989. The zest Chef Chan has to deliver a meal, fit for a king and officially rewarded a prestigious Michelin star for his version of a plate of tender chicken rice, expect a long queue during peak hours.

Before ending your tour of exquisite degustation of the local kind, you will visit Tea Chapter.

A local business promoting tea culture, you will learn the traditional tea art and be served with the Imperial Golden Cassia; a lightly oxidized Oolong tea from the Fu Jian province, China. Your last stop will be at an artisan jam shop to sample the variety of homemade coconut jams before heading back, hopefully stuffed, to your hotel.
