Eros Hotel managed by Hilton has brought us another exciting food festival and this time from one of my favourite food nations- Singapore.
My memories of eating in Singapore go far back, when we’d visit my uncle and aunt there. We’d shop at Mustafa, go to little India, spend long days at the zoo and of course eat! Porotha with curry, chicken-rice, satay, chilli crab, fish bites on sticks. I could go on.
Singapore has long been known for its street food. And it’s wonderful to have a festival in Delhi that allows you to taste a wide array of it.
The restaurant Blooms at Eros is beautifully decorated in red and gold, and the very real feel of a local Singapore street is beautifully captured with several tantalizing food stalls.
Once you get there take a walk and see what’s on offer. You will want to try almost everything. It’s only a question of what to start with 😉
My recommendations are the following:
Deliciously sticky honey glazed pork belly, duck and chicken.
Hainanese chicken rice (You may find this a bit bland but remember to dunk the chicken in the sauces accompanying the dish. The super salty dark soy was my favourite)
Coconut-ty and spicy Laksa with fish balls, prawn and hard boiled eggs.
The tender Lamb Rendang with steamed rice.
Juicy jumbo prawns.
Mee goreng- noodles with all the fixings!
And the clear winner for the evening: the oyster omelet. I must have had five of these.
There are a host of different options to try, including a crushed ice dessert called Ais Kacang.
Head over there for an authentic taste of Singapore.
Also, sink your teeth into this bad boy before you leave!
The Singapore food festival is on at Blooms at Eros Hotel – managed by Hilton, Nehru Place, for lunch and dinner, everyday until the 25th of March, 2012. Price: 1950 INR plus taxes person.
