Singapore Chinatown’s Top Chilli Dishes

Singapore definitely has a lot of offer what with a range of spicy dishes what with a range of spicy dishes from communities with Indian, Chinese and Malaysian backgrounds. One part of Singapore is the popular area, Chinatown where there’s many restaurants that provide quality dishes, you’ve got to find the right one. On my 4 day trip to Singapore, I really enjoyed eating some chilli dishes at these two places that were affordable.

Tiong Bahru is opposite Clarke Quay’s shopping centre and is open quite late which is a positive thing for nightlife travellers like myself. They specialise in one of Singapore’s famous dishes, Haianese Chicken and Rice and a popular menu choice. The accommodating sauce with the chicken has a delicious, spicy touch into the dish that I can appreciate.

MacPherson was fairly cheap (locals, please correct me if I’m wrong though!) and me and my friend were able to get a range of fairly seasoned dishes for a great price. The chilli prawn was more of a hot sauce chilli than a sweet chilli fortunately but the black pepper chicken was right what I wanted. Almost identical to the taste that I get from the UK, the difference is the spice. There is no dash of chilli in either but rather a few spoonfuls that makes a big difference.

The great thing about Chinatown including Singapore is that there is always a familiarity of dishes but also an unfamiliarity of new food to try including Chilli Crab (next time after lockdown)! Not too far, there’s also Lau Pa Sat, a food market I loved visited. With such a big range of delicious dishes from around the world in one place, next time I visit the country I want to go back there and Chinatown to eat more spiciest dishes in Singapore.
