Roasted Duck at Tiong Bahru Meng Kee
The first dish on the list of must try food in Chinatown Singapore is a typical delicious dish of this neighborhood: Roasted Duck at Tiong Bahru Meng Kee Stall. The name sounded so long, but it was actually roasted duck, LOL.
This is a char siu roast duck (Cantonese Roast Duck), duck meat when cooked will be soft and juicy without drying out. It is usually served with vegetables such as broccoli, tomatoes … If you are a fan of roasted dishes, you should definitely try this when you come to Chinatown.
Well, frog porridge is so famous in Singapore, there’s no need to argue ?! You also do not need to come to Singapore to eat frog porridge, in Vietnam now there is no shortage of eateries serving this dish. However, enjoying the traditional food right at the bustling street of Chinatown at night brings a special flavor and very characteristic atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else.
The meat frog is braised with the rich Kung Pao sauce, when you order, remember to tell the chef that you want to eat spicy or not, because they can do follow their habit and put in lots of chili make you while eating and crying, LOL. Cantonese white porridge will be served with braised frog, frog’s salty and spicy taste blend with the slightly aroma of porridge that will make your stomach full because of non-stop eating, LOL!

Grilled Chicken Wings at Chomp Chomp Goodluck BBQ
My style when backpack traveling is to find a grilled dish that can be taken away, then both walking around the street and eating, so I searched for this grilled chicken wings in Chinatown. This is one of the most famous street food in the Lion Island of Singapore.

Char Kway Teow (Fried Flat Noodles)
The pungent taste of this dish is very suitable to enjoy in rainy days, but also if you can not eat spicy food very much, consider carefully before trying.
This dish first appeared and was known as a popular street food, sold on the street food vendors. However, later it was prepared into a delicious dish by the good chefs and present on the menu of luxury restaurants!
Spicy Stir-Fried Rice Noodles are made from flat rice noodles, stir-fry and then pour white or dark sauce, add a little belachan (shrimp paste), tamarind sauce, bean sprouts, Chinese aromatic leaves, sausage, oysters and some herbs. Sounds pretty complicated, but it’s so delicious!
