Back at the Singapore Food Trail once again to try out other old school dishes which we did not manage to sample on the previous 2 visits as well as to satisfy the husband’s craving for the delicious oyster omelette which we simply can’t resist.

Ding Ding Candy
Deuk Deuk Tong or commonly referred to as Ding Ding Tang is a type of traditional candy, found in Hongkong and Singapore. The candy is made by first melting the maltose, then adding to it various ingredients and continuously stirring the mixture. Before the mixture solidifies, it is put on a metal stick and pulled into a line shape, then coiled into the shape of a plate.
In Cantonese, deuk means chiselling, breaking things into pieces. When street hawkers sold the candy, it was necessary for them to break apart its original shape with a pair flat chisels, namely “deuk”. Chiselling makes noise and attracts children to buy. This is a traditional candy which cannot be found in Singapore. Thus, I am so glad that Singapore Food Trail brought it back so that I can share with my daughter the nostalgic taste of the 1960s.
Look at this little fellow enjoying her mini-tube of ding ding candy!!
A popular Singapore and Malaysia cuisine with its origin from China’s Fujian (hokkien) province. This dish consists of egg noodle, rice noodle, stir fried with egg, bean sprouts, pork, prawns and squid served and garnished with spring onions, lard, sambal chilli and lime.
This dish consists of mixing potato starch into the egg batter, giving the resulting egg wrap a thicker consistency and chewy texture. Pork lard is normally added to enhance its taste and crispiness. A specially concocted chilli sauce mixed with lime juice is served alongside for an intense flavour. A Must-Try!!
Bak Chor Mee (Minced Meat Noodle)
This dish is served with mee pok (flat, thick width yellow noodle), minced meat, pork slices, pork livers, stewed mushrooms, meat balls, a piece of dried salted fish and crispy lard, garnished with spring onions alongside with a bowl of flavourful soup.
