Food Trip at Food Republic

I went to Singapore with one mission: EAT!  I’m not really a shopping person. When I travel, I usually just try out new dishes.

Before my friends and I went to Sentosa that Saturday, we ate lunch at Food Republic, Vivo City.

Hokkien Mae Prawn Noodles. Stir fried noodles with sprouts, squid, pork and prawns with Sambal chili on the side.

Nasi Lemak. Rice cooked with coconut cream. It’s normally served with sambal chili, chicken and small dried anchovies. Since, I planned on trying several dishes. I just ordered the rice.

Popiah. Fresh spring roll. It’s Singapore’s version of our fresh Lumpia.  It uses pretty much the same ingredients. However, instead of serving the peanut sauce separately, they spread it on the spring roll wrapper before putting the other ingredients.

Bak Kuh Teh. It’s a pork rib soup with a unique broth, Singapore’s version of our Nilaga.

Laksa. This is Singapore’s popular spicy noodle soup. Now, I’m hungry!

Beef Rendang. Indonesian beef dish cooked in coconut milk and spices. Singapore’s version of our Calderata. The main difference is the use of coconut milk.
