Going to Singapore for holidays, or stopping by Singapore for a day transit? Here's a quick guide of five classic local dishes to try.



Nasi lemak - nasi is the word for rice, and lemak is Malay for "rich", referring to the star of the dish - rice soaked in rich coconut flavours. The dish classically comes with ikan bilis (fried anchovies), a small piece of fried fish or chicken, a few slices of cucumber, and a deliciously spicy chilli sauce. A short drive from Changhai airport, Changi Beach is well known for its nasi lemak.



Fresh coconut juice - served in a coconut, is a common drink found in South East Asia. Most stores serve both the large green coconuts, as well as the tastier young coconut, from which you can also scoop out and eat the tender, smooth flesh.



Oyster omelette - my personal favourite - a delicious omelette made with multiple, tasty, little oysters, and the lovely texture of starchy pieces mixed into the egg.



Chwee kueh - a "water cake", made with steamed rice flour, and served with tasty preserved vegetables and chilli sauce. The rice flour cake itself has a great soft and smooth texture when it is fresh and hot.



Popiah - with batter thinner than a crepe, popiahs are rolls filled with mixed vegetables, and a sweetish sauce.

Enjoy your culinary journey, and tell us what you think are the "must-trys" for a trip to Singapore.
