Singaporeans are serious food people. Our social gatherings revolve around mandatory meals, suppers, and food hunts especially in the wee hours of the night. Common problems faced include not knowing what to eat and not having anyone to eat with.
Food in Singapore comes in a melting pot of flavors and heritages. With such a vast array of cultural diversity in delicious cuisines, therein exist dishes that we can consume at any time of the day, because they are just that yummy (or we are just starving all the time.)
So here are some food that Singaporeans consume 24/7 all day errday!
1. Roti Prata
Yes, we love our 24 hours Prata shops all around Singapore. From plain Prata to Prata with ice cream and whatnot, we can have Prata for breakfast, Prata for lunch, Prata for dinner, and Prata for supper. No problem.
Prata comes in all shapes and sizes, and most importantly, all flavors.
You can find amazing Prata like Chocolate Prata,
Ice cream prata,
Plaster prata, (egg cooked on top of a plain prata)
And even prata bomb (prata bomb has layers of margarine and sugar in between its snail looking form).
Savory, sweet, salty, spicy, prata has it all!
Of course there’s always the downside of smelling like oil and grease once you step out of the prata house. Why not order in?
Foodpanda has awesome online prata deliveries like Prata King and here’s a part of their menu dedicated solely to Pratas-
As you can see, I took the liberty of boxing the really unusual flavoured Pratas, some I’ve never even heard of before! If you’re feeling adventurous, go ahead! Give them a try. Oh, and guess what you can even get them in the comfort of your home, just by ordering through FoodPanda!
Pratas are really affordable too. Of course, their prices do range when you start adding more ingredients in but they are a guaranteed stomach-filler. Top it up with an Iced Milo or Milo Dinosaur and you’re good to go!
Did you know there’s also Milo Godzilla and Milo King Kong?! Well, I didn’t.
Apart from Pratas, Prata King has multiple kinds of Indian Cuisine available to feed your hungry bellies. Your prata is just a click away!
2. Dim Sum
Dim Sum is a Cantonese pronunciation of the Chinese characters 点心. In Mandarin, when combined together, they literally mean, “touch heart”. Just like other shrewdly coined Mandarin phrases, it could serve as a reminder for chefs of their duty to prepare food, with love, for the enjoyment of their patrons.
In Hong Kong, most cities start serving up Dim Sum as early as 5 in the morning as it is a tradition for the elderly to gather and to eat Dim Sum after morning exercises. However, in modern society, it has become common for Dim Sum to be eaten for dinner and even supper.
Singaporean clubbers would understand for sure. (Swee Choon, anyone?)
I think I’m going to order some now since I’m too lazy to travel out of the office for lunch…
3. Nasi Lemak
In Malaysia, where it is considered a national dish, Nasi Lemak is also considered as one of the most famous dishes for Malay-type breakfast. It is no different for Singaporeans.
River Valley Nasi Lemak specializes in; yes you guessed it, Nasi Lemak. They have a variety of sets and combos to suit your whims and fancies!
The actual shop is located at the basement of Lucky Plaza and is usually extremely crowded during lunch hour. If you don’t have the luxury of time, order in through Foodpanda and have it delivered right to wherever you are. It’s as simple as that!
