While there are many fun places to explore in Singapore, many people come to this island nation just for the food. It’s a unique blending of many different culture groups gives it some of the best food in the world. You can count on those of Malaysian ancestry to make great food with chili peppers, shrimp paste, and coconuts while those of Chinese ancestry often cook with rice, wheat, and noodles. There is a large population of people of Indian ancestry living in Singapore, and they often cook with pearl millet, mung beans, and chickpeas. The food from other ethnic groups is found here too.
With so many different choices, it can be difficult to decide what you want to dine on or whether you want to cook at home or dine out. Let’s take a look at some of the top bloggers in Singapore because let’s face it, who knows the country better than the locals.

Overslept today so could only make it for lunch. Did a quick and easy Sambal Nasi Goreng (Sambal Fried Rice 参巴炒饭) using my new hotplate set from @recoltesg Some people has been asking about the difference between this and the other hotplate. I think other than aesthetic wise, the most noticeable difference is that this one can be fully detachable for washing. I have also attached a little video on how the whole hotplate can be dismantled. Also, sharing a little video clip and recipe below on cooking up this Sambal Fried Rice using the hotplate and cooking a sunny side up together. You can probably eat from the hotplate itself too, saving all the washing up ! 😂 #Recipe #食谱 (serves 1): 1/2 cooked overnight rice 1 tbsp cooking oil + more for cooking prawns and egg 1 tbsp minced garlic 2 tbsp ikan bilis 5-6 pcs prawns Some edamame beans (blanched) Seasonings (mix all together): 1 tbsp sambal chilli sauce 1 tsp kecap manis (sweet soya sauce) 2 tsp tomato sauce 1/2 tsp sugar Pinch of salt To serve with: Sunny side up Method: 1) Heat up some oil and cook the prawns. Remove and set aside. 2) Add 1 tbsp oil and saute garlic till fragrant. 3) Add rice and seasonings. Stir fry till rice is well coated with seasoning sauce. 4) Add edamame beans followed by prawns and cook till rice almost done. 5) If using same hotplate, push rice to one side and add more oil on other side to cook sunny side up egg. 6) When egg is done, off the heat and serve. . . #ewtonebowlmeal #午餐 #简单的美味 #懒人料理 #一碗搞定 #简易炒饭 #friedrice #今天吃炒饭

Just tasted – the new @mcdsg Rendang Sedap Angus Beef Burger. Surprisingly tasty. Something I'd actually order again. I like the contrast of the fried egg, raw onion, sautéed onion, and patty dripping with an extremely mild rendang sauce. The sauce helps make the 100% Angus beef patty more moist. Without it, I could imagine this being too dry. . I was very surprised when I cut the burger into quarters and saw that the patty wasn't crazily overcooked (swipe to see the cross section). That wasn't something I expected. I had expected to see grey all the way through so to see the burger cooked carefully really surprised me. . Of course, I can't say for sure if all of these will be so carefully prepared. Mine was kindly dropped off by @mcdsg just moments ago. I guess my son's Rainbow Fries suggestion and my recent public love for their ha cheong gai drumlets put me on their radar and onto their social media list. . Just want y'all to know I'm getting nothing out of this outside of a burger, coke and fries . 😂 . This new menu item launches on National Day (9 August). I don't know how long the promotion will last… All the press materials just say "for a limited period." 🤷🏻♂️ . . . . . #food #foodporn #foodphotography #sgfood #sgeats #foodstagram #instafood #delicious #yummy #igsg #nomnom #tasty #foodpic #gastroart #gastroporn #chef #love #freebie #mcdonalds #rendang #burger #egg #nationalday #singapore #mcdsg #rendangburger

[Lobby Lounge] – Known for its peppery Bak Kut Teh, this family-run brand – Legendary Bak Kut Teh uses fresh Indonesian pork and Sarawak peppercorn to create that tummy warm dish.

The broth, however, is a much mellower version compared to those served in their own restaurants. . Find out more at https://www.sgfoodonfoot.com/2018/03/the-lobby-lounge-shangri-la-hotel.html .

Which donut flavour is your favourite? . My first love has got to be the original glazed. I remember trying Krispy Kreme for the first time when I was studying in the US. School events would always advertise “free Krispy Kreme donuts”, to entice students to attend. And I was like what on earth? But after I tried them, I understood why. 😍 . . . . . • • • • • #sgeats #sgfood #sgbloggers #sgfoodbloggers #whati8today #burpple #stfoodtrending #huffposttaste #sgfoodies #sgrestaurants #sgig #singapore #visitsingapore #gosingapore #exploresingapore #singaporeinsiders #krispykreme #donuts #doughnuts #krispykremesg #originalglazed
