My Singapore Food Trip Must Eat List

I am so excited to go back to Singapore this weekend. It still feels like home, even if we no longer have our Urbana flat. I am really looking forward to the food.

Since I deal so much with planning and KPIs and running after KPIs in my daily job, I also planned what are our MKL (Minimum Keeping Lines) for Must Eat Food this weekend. I even have opportunistic food options.

My Minimum Must Eat At Places include:

1. Xiao Long Bao at Din Tai Fung 
Din Tai Fung has the best Xiao Long Bao (soupy pork dumplings).
Original Flavored Xiao Long Bao, that is.
While Foie Gras and Truffle Xiao Long Bao is much tastier,
Din Tai Fung has the best Pork Chop and Egg Fried Rice.
Read more about it here.

or Paradise Dynasty
Paradise Dynasty at ion orchard is known
for their flavored Xiao Long Baos.
I love the Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao the best!
The Truffle Xiao Long Bao is my second favorite. 
See why it's so flavorful?
Look at the fat in the broth. Yummmmmmy!!!
Read more about it here and here.
*oh no, writing this post makes me want to eat at both places*

2. Le Cuison at Holland Drive
Le Cuison is my favorite hawker stall, thus the tray.
I love their Angus beef.
and their Salad with Pan Seared Foie Gras.
The best part is, you can enjoy really good French Food at Hawker Prices. 
You can read more about it here and here.

3. My favorite Food Stalls at 313 and Takashimaya
I used to snack on these things at least once a week, after dropping Sofia off at school, I'd walk back the long way (I'd walk the length of Orchard Road), picking up lunch on my way home.

I am really craving for XXL Crispy Chicken Chop and Oyster Misua.

Tako Pochi at the food stalls of Takashima Basement (outside the supermarket)
Yummy takoyaki stall.
But my favorite one is Bacon and Cheese.
Topped with Japanese mayo (no bonito flakes for this flavor)

ToriQ also at Takashimaya basement
The Tori Q Stall is just beside Tako Pochi.
Automated cooking machine.
Assembly line to make sure it's evenly cooked
and coated with Yakitori sauce.
My favorite ones are Chicken and Chicken Ball.

My Opportunistic Places:

1. If we end up eating at Marina Bay Sands because we're going to The Art of Brick Exhibit, these are the things I want from the Rasapura Masters Food Court
I want dry Yong Tau Fu (pick your own soup ingredients)
with Laksa broth served separately.
Just imagine, the goodness of Laksa, with no carbs!
I also want the crispy squid that's really nice to munch on.
The smallest order is humongous so I hope Tim also wants some.

2. I also want Ramen from Ipuddo but I am not willing to line up for it.
My favorite Ramen in Singapore and in Japan.
You can read more about it here and here.
3. I also want to eat in Jumbo Seafood, but not for chili crabs, cereal prawns or even black pepper beef.
I am craving for Scallops wrapped in Yam,
served with honey.
You can read more about Jumbo Seafood here.

4. I also would not mind eating at Irvin's except it's just so far.
They have the best salted egg sauce.
I don't really care if it comes with crab or prawn.
You can read more about Irvin's here.

5. Lastly I am hoping to be able to buy and bring home roast duck.
Roast Duck from Modern Peking Duck Stall at B4 of ion orchard. 

Sofia is also insisting that I list down her Must Eat in Places.

Sofia's List:
1. Chicken Rice
Hainanese Chicken from Tian Tian at Maxwell Center.
Rice not pictured.
Sofia has been telling me for several days now that she's going to eat Chicken Rice in Singapore. It's a good thing Chicken Rice stalls are available in every food court.

2. Kaya Butter Toast
I love Kaya Butter Toast where there butter is thicker than the bread!
It is also normally served with soft boiled eggs.
But the best part is the Kopi.
I need to get my Kopi fix :)
I'm not that picky when it comes to Kaya Butter Toast. You can easily get this from Ya Kun Kaya or Toast Box.

Sofia also has an opportunistic item on the menu, as she loves Curry Puffs from Killiney, but I told her we can only get some if we pass there, since it's no longer on our way home (awwww... I miss our urbana home).
Killiney Curry Puffs have the best Potato Curry Puffs in Singapore.
Sofia actually only eats the crust because
the filling is a bit spicy.

Sofia and I are really looking forward to our foodie trip this weekend. just saying.
