A Cheeky Food Hop & Singapore’s Iconic Super Trees

Eating is definitely one my favourite pastimes when I travel. I’ve been known to plan entire holidays based on the foods I can hoover, especially Peruvian cuisine, which always showcases the local practices and ingredients of the region I am visiting.

So the thought of tasting and sampling my way around Singapore created much tummy excitement.

Sen Lek Neua – Oodles of noodles… smooth, slippery, slurpy, soupy.

You see friends; one of the best things about Singapore is the food. The multicultural background of Chinese to Malay, Indian to Peranakan is reflected in the variety of food it has to offer.

Yep….. Singapore and me, we be soul sisters, cause food is practically a national pastime for the locals too.

Strong mind strong body – Spicy soup – Perhaps red Tom Yum!

Lou said I had to check out the food courts (Hawker Centres) while we were there, they look exactly like a standard food court we have here in Australia, but are independent businesses who sell their own “brand”. Almost every cook has a specialty dish or two that they prepare everyday, many of which have reached a level of perfection that Michelin-starred chefs would envy.

Just as every fairy tale begins with ‘Once Upon a Time’, every meal in Singapore must begin with a bowl of hot soup.

Deciding where and what to eat was awesome, there’s all sorts of amazing [bleep] available. And any culture where there’s no shame in a big bowl of steamy noodles or laksa for breakfast, is something I wanted in on, so soup a plenty we consumed.

All this food sampling business had to be offset with some exercise and an up close and personal visit to Gardens by the Bay was top of the list, especially after seeing the light shows each evening from our hotel balcony.

I don’t think words can adequately describe the beauty and magic of the place, we spent almost a day there wandering around some of the 101 hectares it stands on.

Outstanding! Exquisite! Remarkable! Spectacular! And that’s big coming from me, because I’m not really that into gardens.

A magical misty fairy land – The Cloud Forest at Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay have been named one of the Top 10 Indoor Gardens in the world, it cost around $1 billion to construct and contains two of the largest cooled conservatories around too. We spent most of the time wandering up and down the platforms in the Cloud Forest, a 35-metre mountain covered in beautiful lush plants and one almighty waterfall that stood 10 stories tall. The conservatories have sustainable energy-efficient cooling facilities that allow savings in energy of around 30% to conventional cooling methods, a bit of an engineering feat I’d say.

It really was something to behold and perfect for disappearing into a cool fairy land with butterflies and dragonflies flying around at whim, taking you far away from the swelter and heat outside.

Gardens by the Bay – Cloud Dome

Wowzas Singapore, you sure know how to build some pretty freakin’ awesome stuff. And the extra few kilos I came home with…. Totally worth it! 

I’d love to know, have you been to Singapore? Are you into gardens and what is your favourite soup?

The food is making me so hungry! I’ve been craving Singaporean food for so long! I lived in Singapore for awhile and the one thing I miss is the food. Thanks for the memories!

    Anna - February 9, 2016 Reply

    Meeeee toooooo Joe, and I havent been in Singapore in months and months and months.
    Lucky you living in such an amazing city, the food alone is reason enough for me to consider a move.
    Glad you enjoyed. 🙂

What I wish we had eaten in Singapore – this. What I actually ate? Burger King……

Sharing this now with a friend who is going to the city for 24 hours later in the year. I think she’ll love it!

    Anna - February 9, 2016 Reply

    Nooooooooo way! You didnt! Why oh why did you eat Burger King when you access to all this amazingness. Did you not leave the airport?
    Thank you so much for sharing with your friend, tell her to give me a shout if she has any questions about hot spots in Singapore.

Amazing trees! i fell in love with Singapore. I really thought it was going to be such a sterile place, but there is a ton to love about it. I wasn’t as adventurous with the food, but next time I will have to try some of the soups!

    Anna - February 8, 2016 Reply

    Isn’t it just the most spectacular sight to see, those big beautiful trees?! And yes, you should absolutely be a little adventurous when you next visit, the food is wonderful. 🙂

Kathrin - February 7, 2016 Reply

I’m hungry now! 😀 Never been to Singapore but it’s on my bucket list. Hope I’ll be able to try all the different dishes you described. Probably have to spend some days just sitting around and eating!

    Anna - February 8, 2016 Reply

    Many of my days in Singapore involved moving from one delicious eat to the next. I think every adventure should include days like that. 🙂 I hope you get there soon, such a lovely city.

Natasha Amar - February 7, 2016 Reply

The spicy soup looks delicious! I love Asian cuisine but haven’t really tried Singaporean food yet- I’m pretty sure by the looks of it that I would love it.

    Anna - February 8, 2016 Reply

    It is incredible Natasha, I don’t think I had a bad meal when I was in Singapore, everything was so fresh and delicious and tasty and healthy. Plus the influence from other countries means you get to eat lots of different styles of Asian cuisine. 🙂

melody pittman - February 7, 2016 Reply

What a great adventure! I want that spicy soup please. 😉 Those trees are absolutely amazing.

Lotte - February 7, 2016 Reply

I loved Singapore and seeing your food pictures makes me want to fly there immediately. Everything I ate was sooooooo delicious…

Eating is one of my favourite pastimes too – as well as travelling! I’ve wanted to go to Singapore for a long time. The food looks fantastic. I am so jealous!

    I had an amazing time in Singapore Jasline. It was wonderful. I loved everything about the city, especially the food.
    Cant wait to get back. 🙂

The Guy Who Flies - July 1, 2015 Reply

Hi Anna,

It looks like you’ve found a double win here. Clearly the food was a perfect tonic to your trip.

I remember the first time I went to Singapore I hated the food. I’ve never liked noodles and I really struggled to find anywhere away from fast food which wasn’t noodles. Now that I’ve been back a few times I know there is a lot more choice and agree it can be great. The Hawker Centres are perfect for a wide range of tastes and at great prices.

Those gardens look fascinating. I don’t remember seeing them near the bay, are they quite new? (I haven’t been to Singapore for around 3 years.)

    Anna - July 2, 2015 Reply

    Good Hello The Guy! 🙂
    YEAH… Singapore and I really clicked. Such a beautiful city, and I could absolutely see a very rewarding relationship with the food. LOL!
    You dont like noodles? WOW… Mind blown. I guess it would have been difficult to find food without noodles. Although a few come to mind… Hainanese Chicken Rice, Nasi Lemak, Kaya Toast (could eat this ALL day long), or if you were feeling adventurous Bak Kut Teh (Meat tea… YARM!) 🙂 Argh… All this talk of food is making me hungry.
    Gardens by the Bay were created in 2012, so you must of just missed them on your last visit. Defs worth a visit when you are next in town.

Dee @The Casual Food Blogger - July 1, 2015 Reply

Loved gardens by the bay as well. And that spicy Tom Yum style soup looks delicious, I could go for some now to help with my flu!

    Anna - July 1, 2015 Reply

    Awesome! It was amazing huh? And not at all something you expect to experience in a thriving city. Defo a big tick for the bucket list.
    Oh no, you’ve got the flu, the spicy soups would be the perfect thing to fix you right up too. We really do need to work on that whole ‘beam me up’ thing.

Monique@The Urban Mum - June 26, 2015 Reply

Passing through Singapore next week, the kids will love your suggestions! I am not a big soup fan (in the minority in our house..), spicy Asian flavours get a big tick from my youngest…x

    Anna - June 26, 2015 Reply

    AWESOME Monique, you will have to let me know where you all eat. 🙂
    I reckon I’d get along a treat with your youngest, I totally dig the spicy Asian flavours too.
    Happy weekend to you, and thanks for stopping in. xo

Hannah - June 25, 2015 Reply

I have been to Singapore, however it was only a short trip so didn’t get to do too much exploring. Next time I’m getting some Da Jie Famous Wanton Noodles!

I like gardens but HATE gardening. When I was a kid once every few weeks my mum would declare it was a gardening day and we would spend the whole day weeding. No amounts of fun were had EVER! For this reason sitting in beautiful a garden having a picnic I’m your gall but if you want to do a garden makeover than I’ll pass.

My most favorite soup of all time is Gran’s pumpkin soup. So delicious homey and comforting!
However I’m a soup person in General. Combination long soup, laksa, Thai pumpkin, minestrone, lentil, leek and potato, tomato they are ALL GOOD!

    Anna - June 25, 2015 Reply

    YES…. Famous Wanton Noodles was the BEST! Like some of the BEST noodles I have eaten. Plus you are guaranteed to be royally spoilt and looked after amazingly.

    Yeah, that is a good way of explaining the whole garden thing. I can totes appreciate a beautiful garden, but dont *dig gardening at all. Hahaha… I can picture you weeding and plotting ways to get back at your Momma for making you do it. LOL!

    Ooooh. Grans pumpkin soup sounds amazing. You will have to make it sometime so I can try. And yes to the laksa and short/long soup, but the rest I am good not eating too much.
    Although, if you put meat in a soup I am all over that bad boy. 🙂

Jean | Holy Smithereens - June 24, 2015 Reply

I definitely agree with you Anna, it’s all about the food in Singapore! And looking at those yummy dishes you had is just the warmth I need this winters night! There’s something amazing about those hawker centres, and how they stay open till late at night and still it’s full of people! The size portions per plate are somehow just right for 1 person too (or sharing for two) which makes it fun to order one from this stall and another dish from that stall. aaahhh 🙂

    Anna - June 25, 2015 Reply

    Yeah, the yummy soups would be perfect for these uber chilly winter nights.
    The Hawker centres were fabulous, so much variety and deliciousness, would be a nightmare to navigate if you were indecisive. 🙂
    The serving sizes of the meals were rather large (no complaints this end) but if you were a sharer, then totes would be great too.

Bam's Kitchen - June 24, 2015 Reply

Love, Love Love slurping SG oodles of noodles!!! I don’t think I have favourite but certainly love my laska. I Love that first photo of you, what fun. My husband is actually there in SG now on business. If you even happen to swing by Hong Kong please let me know sweet little Anna!!! Take care, BAM

    Anna - June 25, 2015 Reply

    YES!!! I too am rather fond of the laksa, but trying to decide on a favourite would be near impossible. Allllll the food! 🙂

    Thanks lovely, appreciate your kind words very much.

    Lucky Hubster, tell him to eat kaya toast for me.

    And YES! I will absolutely be visiting Hong Kong in the next year or so, so lock that visit in for sure. Hanging with you is right up top of my list. 🙂

    Big hugs. xo

I so love Singapore…I use to travel there for 2 weeks at a time to teach singing. If I had enough money, I would go for 3 days once a month just to eat… satay, Laska, chicken and rice and bao! Yum Yum… yes the gardens are beautiful 🙂 Liz xx

    It was one of the most amazing foodie experiences ever, loved that I could get a really delicious meal in a food court and that it was inexpensive too.

I haven’t visited Singapore since I was knee high to a grass hopper…I think that needs to be changed solely on the food! But of course I would like it, ahh how could you not? Street food, I can almost smell it from here.

(ps. Blog looks super great too Anna!)

    Teehee… Such a funny expression. 🙂
    YES, you really REALLY must get back to Singapore, the food was tops.
    Isn’t it funny we go so crazy for street food, but boy is it the best way to eat and experience a culture when visiting a foreign country.
    Thanks heaps lovely one, really appreciate you saying so. xo

Mabel Kwong - June 18, 2015 Reply

You hit the nail on the head when you say that Singaporeans have no shame eating a big breakfast like laksa or a bowl of noodle soup. When I used to live there, I loved eating smooth chicken congee for breakfast topped with fried Chinese doughnuts. Never enough of those doughnuts… 😉

I am amazed you actually eat the spicy dishes there with no problem. A lot of my Western friends just can’t…and neither can I, haha!

To be honest, I’m not much of a gardens fan. But this one in Singapore looks amazing. It looks more like a jungle than a garden and I’m sure you can get lost after a while 😀

Love the new look around here. So neat and tidy. You did a great job, big sis! <3

    Anna - June 19, 2015 Reply

    Yep, I reckon Chicken Congee looks almost like porridge, only its savory, sounds perfect. I dont think I have ever had a Chinese Doughnut tho? The Google says they are pretty simple, might have to make me some. Ill make extra for you! 🙂

    I dont mind spicy foods, especially when I travel I like to embrace the local cuisines. Plus, someone said that spicy foods are good for your tummy, helps with digestion or something?!

    Ha, totes agree re the gardens, not traditionally something I am into, but when they are world famous, how could I not visit.

    Thanks little one, I really appreciate your support. You ROCK!

    Happy weekend. xo

What a great post & a terrific walk down memory lane of our amazing few weeks in Singapore. Honestly, I still think about the Hawker Centres – just about every single stall had such great food. Love, love, love all those soupy noodley yummy dishes we had in Singapore. And what about the Gardens huh, I loved The Cloud Dome the best, you actually felt like you’d stepped into another world.

    Anna - June 18, 2015 Reply

    Yeah, we really did have a fab time in Singapore huh?!
    And for a couple of non garden types, I totes agree, the Cloud Dome was one heck of a super garden, it was lovely to escape the heat and humidity in that fairy land.
    Cant remember a bad feed in Singapore, wish we could wiggle our noses and be back there for a feed often.

Wow. How amazing are those indoor gardens. I have seen a doco on the construction of it, but that was so many years ago. It looks so beautiful in there.
I have never been to Singapore, but dang I sure would love to see it one day. It is on the list of ‘to do’.
I could seriously inhale all of the dishes that you have taken photos of.
Thank you for sharing your adventures.

    It was AMAZING Rachel, we literally hopped from one delicious bowl of yummy to the next. 🙂
    Reckon you’d love these gardens then, cause for a non garden person, they were pretty darn beautiful. The giant trees sure were a sight, kinda cool to be able to see such an iconic site in the flesh.
