In terms of what to eat, Singapore is very well-known for its variety of ethnic food offerings. From Chinese to Malay to Indian to insert-race-here food, they won’t come short of food available.
Our flight via AirAsia Philippines landed in Changi Airport at around early noontime, and right before checking in at Royal Plaza on Scotts, we took our lunch at one famous Indian Restaurant located in Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore, which is called Blue Ginger.
Indian food isn’t new to me, since I was able to give it a taste during my first trip to Singapore. If you’re a fan of spicy food and curry, giving Indian food a try is a definitely a must.
Their dishes are delightfully scrumptious, and I’m quite sure, just by scrolling over these photos, you’re experiencing a sudden foodgasm!
Considering that most of us were new to and unfamiliar with Indian cuisine, the AirAsia team took part in selecting their best dishes. If you noticed, they’re mostly seafoods!
Letting your curiosity slide off by trying out unfamiliar food may sometimes be uncanny (for me, at least), but it’s no secret to Singapore natives and tourists likewise, that one of the bests when it comes to food in Singapore is Indian food, undoubtedly.
These were served as our dessert. Comprised with milk, sago, crushed ice and some sweet delights, I think I can compare it to our Filipino halo-halo or Mais Con Hielo.
Meanwhile, along the streets near Bugis Village (where bazaars and street markets are located), were kiosks offering a range of food selections like cakes, the very muh known Laksa, their version of the street ice cream (or dirty ice cream, as we Filipinos label it) and a whole lot more. You surely know where and what to feed your hunger after a tiring day of shopping spree!
Do you see the legendary Selecta logo? Yes, you got it right! We were informed beforehand that we should give their street ice cream a try. Luckily, whilst strolling around, we were able to spot ice cream vendors. Be sure to find the cheapest ones, because they sell at around 80 cents to 1 dollar. How fortunate could we get to find the cheapest at 80 cents? That’s about PHP 26-27.00!
You might have a second thought on trying it out if you compare to PH’s dirty ice cream which roughly costs P5-10. But as they say, when you compare and convert, you never get the best deals and experiences! After all, you’re on a travel in a foreign country, so might as well indulge in their culture for a little bit.
Satisfied as I am, if I could go back to these streets, I’d eat their ice cream once more! This photo above makes me currently crave for the raspberry-flavored ice cream (which I believe ice cream vendors here don’t offer) sandwiched in sweet wafers. Creatively thought of, it’s their version of the ice cream on a bun!
If you’re planning to just chill and relax, I recommend you dine at Carousel Restaurant on Royal Plaza. With their interiors alone, you’ll be convincingly full already! Kidding aside, their variety of delectable dishes will certainly satisfy all your cravings. If you’re staying on the hotel, you get to have a breakfast privilege at the restaurant! Definitely worth your money!
