The Singapore Food Trail @ The Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Food Trail has a 1960s street theme decoration with famous hawker stalls setup along the road side. There are 17 heritage hawker stalls that have been in the business for 30 years or more. However have the stalls handed down the skill and taste to their next generation? That is for you and me to embark on the Singapore trail to explore our very own national pride of hawker food.

My food trail started with Katong Keah Kee Fried Oyster. The stall is very generous with the chilli sauce. A good Fried Oyster must be matched with a good chilli sauce and the stall did not disappoint me in this aspect. Some may like their plate of sweet potato flour and egg fried until very crisp but I prefer it to be a bit wet. The stall managed to fry a balance neither too wet or crisp.

The Whampoa Ngoh Hiang Prawn Cracker was a disappointment and pricey. Do check with the cashier if you do not want to get a shock as there is no price tag. I ordered 5 items and it cost me $7.80. Food was only average.

The Sin Ming Road Rong Chen Bak Kut Teh was pretty good. A $5 bowl of Bak Kut Teh came with 3 pieces of pork rib. The meats were tender and slipped off the bone easily. The soup was pepper based but not overpowering.

The food trail ended with a dessert from the memory lane, the 1960's ice ball. Shaved ice was shaped into a ball with cooked read beans and atap seeds stuffed inside. Finally coloured syrup and evaporated milk are poured over the ice ball to give it the sweetness taste.
