Chilli Crab, also known as Singapore’s unofficial “national dish” is cooked in various ways. The most common style is done with chilli and sweet-sour sauce ribboned with beaten egg.

The dish is served steaming hot and garnished with fresh lime and a dollop of spicy chilli sambal. Alive with the pungencies of both China and Southeast Asia, Fried Hokkien Mee is one of the favourite Singapore dishes.
Now, I would like to recommend a unique dish eaten by all races. This dish is none other than… Mee Rebus
Translated into English, this dish means simply ‘boiled noodles’ — but the dish is anything but simple. It is yellow egg noodles in thick, spicy, slightly sweet gravy, garnished with boiled eggs, sliced green chilies, fried cubes of beancurd, and fresh lime.

The egg noodles, beancurd and dark soy sauce are Chinese touches, while the gravy speaks of combined influences from Indian and Malay cuisine, with its curry-like flavour and use of dried shrimp and tamarind.
