Gourmet Singapore - The Sequel

This is the second part of my recent gourmet adventures in the city of Singapore!  You can catch the first part of Singapore Gourmet here.  I'm making this quick and short!  And uploading lots of pictures for you to enjoy.


First stop is Makansutra Gluttons Bay at the Esplanade!

When dining hawker style, look for the stalls with the longest queue!  These stalls are bound to serve great food.  In this area, that stall will have to be BOON TAT SEAFOOD!  I would recommend you try local favorites like the Fried Baby Squid, BBQ Stingray, and Garlic Prawns!  If you're craving for Crabs, they have them as well.  Depending on the multitude of people, orders can take 20-30 minutes to prepare.  While waiting for your order, try the Fried Hokkien Mee on the adjacent stall (SOON LEE).    

Insider Tips: 
  • Go early as stocks are limited.  
  • Bring along your friends! One will have to save the table, another to queue for drinks (only the first stall is selling beverages), and another one to order food.
  • When in doubt, ask! The queue can get quite confusing.  There's one queue to place orders and another for people waiting for their orders.  Make sure you're on the right one. hehehe (In the BOON TAT stall anyway)

After dinner, you may take a stroll along the Esplanade and enjoy the view.

Walk to the nearby Youth Olympic Park and all the way to Marina Bay Sands through the Double Helix Bridge.

Or go to Esplanade Mall for coffee and desserts.  Don't forget to pass by THE COOKIE MUSEUM, for a taste of Singapore's Best Hand-made cookies.  There are samples you can try for free.  Or you can dine-in and enjoy it with a cup of coffee or tea.

If you're lucky, you may just be able to catch an outdoor concert at the Esplanade as well!


For a great view of the Singapore Skyline, dine at the EQUINOX at Swissotel The STAMFORD Hotel.  As you can see in my picture, there are no pictures of food as our buffet spread wasn't good at all.  We were a large group so they had to put us in a function room which was located one floor below the actual restaurant.  I wonder if their usual spread is any better ... but I highly doubt it.  Even the desserts weren't executed well.  You'll have to soak in the view to come close to getting your money's worth.  Now how do you get yourself in the picture? Check out the upper right image in the collage.


Unlike dining at the Equinox, you'll never have to worry about getting your money's worth with GARRETT's POPCORN!  Caramel-glazed popcorn are simply delicious!  Try the ones with Macadamia Nuts. (^o^)/  

Located right outside Universal Studios Singapore (Resorts World, Sentosa Island).  

TRAVEL TIP: If you're taking the taxi to Resorts World, ask "Uncle", your elder Chinese taxi driver, to take you directly to the underground entrance of Resorts World to avoid paying the additional $6 SGD fee.   (^o-)v


And just when you thought you'd have enough already.  Go to the Changi Airport Food Court (I think it was on the 3rd floor -  one level above where the shops are located), and try more local delicacies like Chicken Rice!  To be honest, I try to avoid eating chicken rice because first of all, I hate eating white chicken (steamed).  And secondly, if the cook used a fatty chicken for the dish, the layer of fat that forms just below the skin can be very unappetizing!  In this stall however, I was happy to find out that they also serve ROASTED CHICKEN RICE! (^o^)/ (~$5 SGD).  Yummy!
