Singapore food experience
True! And you better be ready once you entered My Singapore Food Street at the 2nd Level, Bridgeway, SM Megamall A & B because once you’re there, you’ll be transported to an all Singaporean food trip that you can imagine.
My Singapore Food Street officially opened on January 15, 2013 making it almost a year, one month from now.
We haven’t gone yet to Singapore and that’s one city outside the country we are planning to visit in 2015 and almost all customers of My Singapore Food Street would comment that the feel and taste of Singapore were captured by the fast-casual restaurant, according to one of the staff that we’ve asked during our visit last November. My Singapore Food Street offers the taste and style of Singapore Hawker Center food using freshly cooked, quality ingredients at reasonable prices.
The visit was actually our second time in My Singapore. We had Chicken Noodles (P99) on our first visit and we were really impressed that we told ourselves we need to go back. Fortunately, we were invited one evening to sample more of what”s in their menu board.
We’ve met Vivien Tan who is the Managing Director of My Singapore Food Street and is also a restaurateur, aside from being a TV host and fashion model. Vivian divides her time time between Singapore and Manila, two cities she likes to call home.
So what makes My Singapore Food Street authentic?
“It’s basically the food,” according to Vivien. Many have asked her if they plan of making My Singapore Food Street menu more accustomed to Filipino palate but Vivien believed that by doing it so, the authenticity of Singapore flavors will lose its touch. Very well said. We loved her more when she told us that their concept is bring in the real Singapore experience in Manila rather than being just copying it and fusing it with local Pinoy touch. Not that My Singapore Food Street loves Filipino dishes. It’s just we agreed with what Vivien believed in that one’s own cuisine shouldn’t lose its own taste if it is imported to another country.
Singapore and the Philippines almost share the same culture and that is why for Filipinos it won’t be difficult to adjust palates for a Singaporean dish. Even if it is too hot and spicy!
Oh yes! In the Philippines especially in the Bicol region, local residents are familiar to hot and spicy food and we think that My Singapore’s spicy entrees will be as much welcomed dish with Pinoy customers.
Let’s talk about their best-seller, Laksa. We have been to Malaysia and even here in Manila, and tasted laksa many times but here in My Singapore Food Street is the real-deal as it could get. We loved the taste and flavors of laksa that we’ve tried in other places and My Singapore tops it all. Why? Because it serves laksa in an overloading spiciness flavor that you could imagine. And according to Vivien, that is how laksa should be, more hot and spicy.
Just as to not get embarrassed every time we see Vivien enjoying her laksa, we just get along and braced ourselves for the overloading spiciness of the noodle dish.
Laksa sold for P210 is served with luglug noodles, coconut creamy soup topped with two fish cake, togue, baby prawn, boiled egg, and sambal chili which they mix and make in their own kitchen.
And don’t forget. A trip to a Singaporean restaurant won’t be complete without the signature meals like Hainanese Chicken (Roasted or Stemaed) P210, Nasi Goreng P155, Satay Chicken P140-P280, Char Kway Teow P210, and Roti Pratha. And My Singapore Food Street serves them all in the real sense of the flavorful dishes.
One more thing that My Singapore Food Street is popular for is the Kopi/Teh Tarik (P75), which they gladly showed us how they mix and served this hot Indian beverage. Kopi/Teh Tarik is usually found in restaurants, outdoor stalls, and kopi tiams in South Eastern Asian countries like Malaysia and Singapore. It’s name is derived from the pouring process of “pulling” the drink during preparation. It is made from black tea, condensed milk, and evaporated milk.
My Singapore Food Street also offers another set of mixture with varies from Kopi and Teh C (with milk) P65, Kopi and Teh O (with sugar) P65, and Kopi and Teh Kosong (black without sugar) P55. My Singapore Food Street also serves a variety of cold beverages and ice blended drinks like the best-selling Frozen Milo Dinosaur, sold for P125.
My Singapore Food Street is under the PJ Lhuillier Group of Companies headed by President and CEO Henri Lhuillier.
