Toast Box 

 
Toast Box is a reflection of the coffee shops from the 60s and 70s, where the common practice for breakfast was a fragrant cup of Nanyang Coffee accompanied by freshly toasted bread. Inspired by the local culture of Singapore, Toast Box offers a 360 degree sensory experience with contemporary ambiance. This warm, nostalgic concept was reinvented to bring back fond memories for those who missed the good old times and for the younger ones to experience the feel and flavours of a bygone era.
 
Toast Box Nanyang Kopi
Toast Box's signature traditional pulled Nanyang Kopi, which we fondly call in Southeast Asia, is still the quintessential beverage at all Toast Box outlets.

Lau Pa Sat

 
Open 24 hours daily, Lau Pa Sat is the place to be for patrons looking to fill their bellies with good food and to immerse themselves in a market steeped in the history and traditions of old Singapore.
 
Lau Pa Sat is renamed after Telok Ayer Market which is built in the 19th century and was gazetted as a national monument in 1973. It is a true Singapore landmark, situated in the heart of the financial district. The market has a distinctive octagonal shape with ornamental columns and a graceful clock tower located on top of the octagonal structure.
 

The market has long been converted into a hawker centre offering the best of local delights. Like a plate of Hainanese chicken rice, a bowl of Laksa or a plate of oyster omelette etc while appreciating the elegant old-world charm of Singapore’s loveliest food court. Besides local cuisine, there are also Malaysian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Filipino, Indian and Korean food stalls. The foods are of decent quality with food court prices.
 
 
It is best to visit the place after 7pm as this is when the Satay Street opens. Situated just behind the building, the road is closed from traffic every evening, when the sellers set up their barbeque pits and try to tempt you with the tasty meat on sticks. Sitting on the plastic tables with a beer and the famous snack is a fun way to end your time at the Lau Pa Sat.

Irvins Salted Egg


What: 

Irvins Salted Egg Potato Chips and Fish Skin ($8 for a small bag; $16 for a big bag)


Where: 

1. Physically head down to their outlets: VivoCity #B2-K25, Raffles Xchange, Plaza Singapura, Orchard gateway and Westgate 

2. Puchase online: Delivery charge $15 unless your orders hit above $100

    https://irvinsaltedegg.com

The hype of salted egg started more than a year ago. However our local brand, Irvins salted egg snacks become the hottest trend recently. There are many people queueing at the outlets and always sold out really fast.


They are quite famous for their salted egg fish skin. It was love at first whiff, really - opening the bag, I was greeted by the smell of salted egg. Impressively pungent, yet not cloying. The fish skin chips are covered with a generous amount of salted egg yolk seasoning and curry leaves; fragrant and crispy and were neither too oily nor too salty. And as promised by Irvins (there is a warning on the bag: they really are dangerously addictive). True to the warning, it was so incredibly addictive and delicious that I could not stop eating once I started.


 

If you have a salted egg craving, this is something that you never want to miss!


 


Satay by the Bay

Satay originated on the Indonesian island of Java. It is available almost anywhere in Indonesia. It is also popular in other Southeast Asian countries like in Singapore. Satay is one of the most loved local delights in Singapore. Hence, it's only fitting that there's a food court in the middle of Gardens by the Bay housing several satay stalls in one place. A 10 minute walk from the two domed conservatories in the Gardens by the Bay, patrons can find eight outdoor push carts selling sticks of satay, with low wooden tables and stools for diners. Satay by the Bay, modelled after the Satay Club of the 80s and 90s, is the latest destination for a casual get together with your family and friends.

This is great for tourists who want to taste different cuisines that Singapore offers. For less than $5 you can have a feast of Satay here with astonishing view of the Marina Bay Sands and enjoy the breeze of sea air. The meats were well marinated and nicely grilled with bits of burnt parts. Both the beef and chicken are tender and flavourful. The gravy provided by Power Satay was unusual but tasty. It had a reddish colour and had chunky peanuts in the gravy. Satay by the Bay offers much more than just satay. In fact, a wide variety of Singapore street food can be found there. Fried kway teow, carrot cake, laksa, roti prata, hokkien mee, BBQ chicken wings and nasi briyani are available. There are also stalls selling pizzas, Thai food, Turkish fare and Mediterranean dishes.

Toa Payoh Rojak

Rojak (Malaysian and Singaporean spelling) or Rujak (Indonesian spelling) is a traditional fruit and vegetable salad dish commonly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. The term rojak also means "mixture" or "eclectic mix" in the colloquial Malay language. Rojak is mixed sliced fruit and vegetables served with spicy palm sugar dressing. Unlike common fruit salads, rojak is often described as tangy and spicy fruit salad; partly due to its sweet, hot and spicy dressing made from ground chili pepper, palm sugar and peanuts.


The Toa Payoh Rojak stall is located at the Old Airport road food center unit no. #01-108. The stall serves a wide range of Malaysian cuisine and is known for their delicious Rojak. Now run by the daughter and son-in-law of the original founder, the Toa Payoh Rojak still serves up one of the better versions of the Chinese-style rojak in Singapore. They use piquant and refreshing rojak sauce, made with a mix of good quality prawn paste, sugar, ginger flower, freshly-squeezed calamansi zest and juice. They are generous with the other ingredients too – pineapple, jicama, kang kong, beansprout, jellyfish, crushed peanut, and freshly toasted you tiao and tau pok. Each serving starts from $3.00.

Ang Mo Kio 409 Fried Carrot Cake —Chomp Chomp Food Centre

 


Chomp Chomp Food Centre might be smaller in size as compared to other hawker center but the place is packed like a sardine can almost every evening. At this place you can find food that makes Singapore special. We will recommend you to have fried carrot cake(菜头粿). It is a common dish or dim sum of Teochew cuisine in Chaoshan (China), Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, consisting of stir-fried cubes of radish cake. In Singapore, it is more commonly cut into pieces and stir fried with eggs, garlic, spring onion and occasionally shrimp (both dried and fresh). There are two variants: the "white" version does not use sweet soy sauce, and the carrot cake is fried on top of a beaten egg to form a crust; the "black" version uses sweet sauce (molasses) and the egg is simply mixed in with the carrot cake. Their white carrot cake ($3/$4/$5) is more worth than having than the black one. It is fried until it is crispy and fragrance attained. It is said that their secret recipe give their carrot cake an extraordinary flavour which is unique only to them.


Though the stall is called “carrot cake”, we noticed that many diners order their fried oyster omelette (from $5) too. As compared to other stalls elsewhere, the oysters here are more plump and juicy with a very subtle raw taste. The plate of eggy is well prepared, featuring a gooey texture that’s nicely flavoured. The punchy chilli sauce completes this dish.

Ang Mo Kio 409 Fried Carrot Cake

Stall 24, Chomp Chomp Food Centre,

20 Kensington Park Road, Singapore 557269

Opening Hours: Tue-Sun 4pm to 11.30pm.
