#! Singaporean Delight !#

“Food, in the end, in our own tradition, is something holy. It's not about nutrients and calories. It's about sharing. It's about honesty. It's about identity”     
 -          Louise fresco

Singaporean Cuisine is one such example of tradition. The food has a tinge of all the many cultures; Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian, Thailand and Middle East.  So in terms of food, it is definitely YOUR SINGAPORE serving you the very native SINGAPORE FOOD with the sprinkling of globalization on the top of your SINGAPORE takeaway.

“Nobody in Singapore drinks Singapore Slings. It's one of the first things you find out there. What you do in Singapore is eat. It's a really food-crazy culture, where all of this great food is available in a kind of hawker-stand environment.”
-         Anthony Bourdain

Here are my quick snacky  favorites from the Singaporean cuisine-

HAM CHIM PENG is a kind of fried bread that looks like donuts. It is ideal for savoring while long chat sessions of the evening, with tea or coffee. It also makes a good breakfast and is available with street vendors or local market hawkers.

PISANG GORENG  is an interesting  snack food . Fit for eating as morning or evening snack, it is easy and quick to make. Banana is dipped in the batter and then deep fried and yummy Pisang Goreng is ready. It is available with street vendors and also in the up-scale restaurants with the extra addition of their innovation.

KAYA TOAST is another mouth watering snack of Singapore. It can be found in the menu of Restaurants and cafés either as breakfast or snacks. Devouring on the crispy toasted bread coated with kaya (Made of coconut milk, sugar and egg) is so close to feeling heaven.

NASI GORENG is a kind of fried rice. However,  it is spicier and crispier than the Chinese fried rice. In 2011 an online poll by 35,000 people held by CNN International chose NASI GORENG as the number two of their 'World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods' list. A concoction of stir fried rice, vegetables, garlic, chili and sauces. Additionally it may be topped with fried egg.
