Geylang is known for its wide variety of local food and cuisines that are influenced by Chinese immigrants. Over here, you will find a good mix of local "Tze Char" (stall that provides a wide selection of delicious dishes which are often link to home cooked food), dim sum and Chinese immigrants comfort food. You will also find stalls that sell seasonal tropical fruits. Geylang is also renowned as a red-light district and that is the reason you need a local to navigate you through the streets safely to find the hidden delicacy gems! We'll first meet at Kallang MRT before taking a short walk to try an immensely popular dim sum stall. I will recommend the popular dishes so that you can sample without feeling overwhelmed. Next, we will visit the fruits stall across the street to buy tropical fruits for you to enjoy back in the hotel. We will then proceed to our next stop with either Fried Beef Noodles or Frog Porridge. I would strongly recommend the latter as frog is tastier and more tender than chicken! We will end off the evening by travelling to Bugis via bus/MRT to have some delicious local desserts. I guarantee you will have a fun and 'full-filling' experience!
Do you eat to live or live to eat? =) I live to eat and I revolve my life around Singapore authentic local delicacies! I have been bringing my international guests to try local delicacies since 2013. I have been endorsed as a Singapore Food Guru by a Slovakian guest (now friend) and she has always followed my food recommendations whenever she hosts her European friends. To eat well is a joy and to connect over good food is an experience. You may ask me anything about Singapore over our meals and I hope to leave you with a positive local experience.
