Happy Father’s Day!!
Returned to the Singapore Food Trail to enjoy the good food as well as to celebrate Father’s Day onboard the Singapore Flyer. Knowing that we will be patronising the Singapore Food Trail frequently, we enrolled for the Singapore Flyer’s annual membership after our 1st visit to the Singapore Food Trail.
Newton Prawn Noodle
Who can resist such a tasty bowl of prawn noodle? I have recommended the Newton Prawn Noodle on my previous post and here I am once again!!
Here is another all time favourite item on the menu!! It is the Oyster Omelette which I have recommended in many posts. For those of you who have not tried this dish before, it consists of flour mixture, eggs and fresh oysters which tastes so good with the special chilli sauce, served hot.
It is a well-known dish in Taiwan and Singapore but they are somehow different in style of cooking. I have not been to Taiwan as yet, so will not be able to comment the differences for now.
Indian Tandoor & Grill
Indian cuisine reflects a 5000-year history of various groups and cultures interacting with the subcontinent, leading to diversity of flavours and regional cuisines found in modern-day (adapted from Wikipedia).
Being in our Multi-Racial Country, Indian food is part of our culture, especially Roti Prata. But today, I’ll be introducing other items which I enjoy eating.
This is one of my regular order at any Indian store because of its simplicity in taste, crispy in texture and tenderness within that makes it taste so good, especially with curry. You can either order the plain naan with a curry of your choice or order the flavoured naan (such as garlic naan, butter naan, masala naan and many more) to be eaten on its own.
Butter Chicken Curry
This is the first time I am trying the Butter Chicken Curry. Normally, I do not have to decide what curry to choose at other eateries as the naan set will always come with a few different curries for dipping. But the store at Singapore Food Trail sells the curry separately. They have a wide range of different curries, ranging from chicken/ beef to all sorts of vegetable starting from SGD$5.00 per bowl.
According to the store seller, the Butter Chicken Curry is the most popular order as it is supposedly mild in term of spiciness. So I decided to order this instead of the Masala Curry which is supposedly more spicy. After tasting it, I find that it is pretty sweet for my liking and the level of spiciness is very mild, recommended for those who cannot really take spicy food too well. Despite the sweetness, the chicken was cooked perfectly. It was tender and easy to bite on, so no issue even for the elderly. On the contrary to its sweetness, it complement the plain naan which was bland on its own. So the next time you decide to order naan & curry, you can choose its individual flavours based on its compatibility.
Onan Beef Noodle (Soup)
I’ve introduced the dry version of this beef noodle on Singapore Food Trail 4. Today, the husband ordered the Beef Balls Soup Noodle which tasted just as good. I commented that they are generous with the amount of beef balls given, but the husband replied me jokingly that it is because it costs SGD$6.00 a bowl, they have to give more beef balls. Well… regardless of price or venue, the standard is about 8 pieces of beef balls per bowl so I still feel that they are generous!!
There is always room for desserts, despite having a filling meal at the Singapore Food Trail. We headed to Max Brenner, located at 8 Raffles Avenue, Esplanade Mall, Unit #01-06/08 after a 30-minutes ride on the Singapore Flyer.
Outlet locations include:
- Vivocity @ 1 Harbourfront Walk #01-116
- I12 Katong @ 112 East Coast Road #01-05
Churro & Chocolate Dip
We ordered the churro & chocolate dip set (SGD$18.00) which did not taste not as good as the previous visit, several months back. The churros were over-baked which made it tough to bite off. I was hoping the chocolate dips were just as good as I had always remembered, but it turned out to be a disappointment too!! Short-handed on serving staff also caused an issue as there was only 1 employee going around serving the many tables and guests. I guess it would be a long while before I might drop in on one of the Max Brenner outlet again.
Singapore Food Trail is a recommended place to have a feel and taste of nostalgic Singapore, especially the Ding Ding Candy which is only available in the evening. After a good meal, you can enjoy a 30 minutes spectacular view of Singapore’ iconic and historical landmarks such as Singapore River, Raffles Place, Merlion Park, and Empress Place at 165m above ground level.
So the next time you come for a short getaway in Singapore, do have a good time to enjoy our multicultural ambience and food!!
