Roasted Duck at Tiong Bahru Meng Kee
The first dish on the list of must try food in Chinatown Singapore is a typical delicious dish of this neighborhood: Roasted Duck at Tiong Bahru Meng Kee Stall. The name sounded so long, but it was actually roasted duck, LOL.
This is a char siu roast duck (Cantonese Roast Duck), duck meat when cooked will be soft and juicy without drying out. It is usually served with vegetables such as broccoli, tomatoes … If you are a fan of roasted dishes, you should definitely try this when you come to Chinatown.
Well, frog porridge is so popular in Singapore that there’s no need to argue, right? You don’t even have to travel to Singapore to eat frog porridge; there are plenty of restaurants in Vietnam that serve it. However, enjoying traditional food right on the bustling street of Chinatown at night adds a unique flavor and atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else.
The meat frog is braised in a rich Kung Pao sauce; when you order, remember to tell the chef whether you want it spicy or not, because they may follow their custom and add a lot of chili to make you cry while eating, LOL. Cantonese white porridge will be served with braised frog, the frog’s salty and spicy flavor blending with the slightly aromatic porridge that will fill your stomach due to non-stop eating, LOL!

Grilled Chicken Wings at Chomp Chomp Goodluck BBQ
My style when backpack traveling is to find a grilled dish that can be taken away, then both walking around the street and eating, so I searched for this grilled chicken wings in Chinatown. This is one of the most famous street food in the Lion Island of Singapore.
Chicken wings are grilled evenly on the both sides, grilled to medium, the outside is eye-catching golden brown, very fragrant and crispy, the meat inside is soft and keep moist and juicy. So tasty!

Char Kway Teow (Fried Flat Noodles)
The pungent taste of this dish is very suitable to enjoy in rainy days, but also if you can not eat spicy food very much, consider carefully before trying.
This dish first appeared and was known as popular street food, sold on the street food vendors. However, later it was prepared into a delicious dish by the good chefs and present on the menu of luxury restaurants!
Spicy Stir-Fried Rice Noodles are made from flat rice noodles, stir-fry and then pour white or dark sauce, add a little belachan (shrimp paste), tamarind sauce, bean sprouts, Chinese aromatic leaves, sausage, oysters and some herbs. Sounds pretty complicated, but it’s so delicious!
