My Singapore Food Street: A taste of Singapore
To start this post, I would just like to state that I haven’t been to Singapore yet so I don’t know the taste of authentic Singaporean food. My wife had been to Singapore but sadly didn’t get to try much of the food as she was only there for a couple of hours during transit. My only experience with Singaporean food is also here in Manila where I got to eat alone on a Friday in Nasi Lemak. But that’s like two years ago.
So my wife and I decided to re-visit Singaporean cuisine together on her birthday! Initially, we were looking for Orchard Road restaurant in Megamall (as that’s the name we recall) not knowing that it was the same restaurant! Only now, that it has been renamed, renovated and I guess with new Management as well? We can only hope that the food is still great as they say.
My Singapore Food Street has an open kitchen where you can see the Chefs showcasing their skills and love for cooking food. The fried chickens hanging there is also mouth watering I must say.
It was a busy day in SM Megamall since it’s Mega Sale but fortunately, there were lots of vacant tables in My Singapore and we got to sit in a comfy place at the back near the windows.
The restaurant is a Self-service type of restaurant so you have to choose from the menu, line up and order at the front. So don’t expect the waiter to take your orders at the table. You can, however, call them if you need assistance.
They also have a replica of the Merlion to add to the restaurant’s ambiance.
While waiting for your food, you can pick-up a BusinessWorld Newspaper for free!
Ambiance – 4/5.
What we ordered
The first order that arrived in our table was the Choco Cookie Blast. An Ice Blended drink.
It has bits of Oreo, whip cream, chocolate syrup and I guess they mixed in some ice cream as well. It was good, but a little too sweet for our taste. The good thing about it is it’s plenty as we shared it among ourselves. It cost P125.
Now for the appetizer, Roti Prata. We liked this one as this is just simple and unpretentious. It was served hot too, so a major plus!
Though we do not know much about Singaporean cuisine, we do know our Chicken Satay as we have tried it in Thailand. Theirs has a bit of fat which we were not a fan of. The flavor also is nothing compared to what he had before. It’s not bad but it’s not that good either. We had better chicken satay in Thailand and even in other restaurants around the metro. So it’s up to you if you will order this. 4pcs of it cost P140.
For our rice dish, we ordered Nasi Goreng! We love this dish as the spiciness and sweetness is just balanced. Though in the menu, they cautioned this as spicy, it’s not as spicy as you thought it would be. Mind you, we love spicy food and we don’t mind if it is over the top spicy, but this is great to those who doesn’t love spicy food at all as I bet they can take the spice level of this dish. And it’s not just the spiciness, but the overall flavor is what gets us. The serving is also great and we even didn’t get to finish it all! I think this is good for 2-3 persons. This is a must when you visit My Singapore Food street. An order is P175.
And of course, last, but certainly not the least! My Singapore Food Street’s Laksa! This, I can say, was the highlight of our experience in My Singapore Food Street. Just like the Nasi Goreng dish, the spiciness and sweetness of this dish is well balanced. The ingredients are also fresh and plenty! I love it that it has so many shrimps in it as we love shrimps lol! I hate to compare but their Laksa is definitely better than Nasi Lemak! As if I have something else to compare on haha! But really, their Laksa is just great and superb! We were so happy we ordered this instead of Char Kway Teow which we also love to try (maybe next visit).
Food – 4.5/5
Service was also good and the waiters were attentive. Food comes fast to our table so we didn’t get to wait a lot. I have nothing to complain about.
Service – 5/5
Overall, we had an awesome lunch for a reasonable price of P755. Definitely recommended if you are craving for Singaporean food. This experience makes me want to book a plane ticket to Singapore or maybe try the other dishes first. 😛
