Singapore Chicken Rice

Singapore Chicken Rice's Chicken Rice

A new fast food joint called Singapore Chicken Rice recently opened it’s first branch in the Araneta Center that serves affordable Singaporean cuisine. Here, one can enjoy his favourite Singaporean dishes at a lower price than what you would normally pay for in other restaurants.

Singapore Chicken Rice’s Chicken Rice is a rice dish that is probably known to many as Hainanese Chicken Rice. It comes served with rice, poached chicken, pickled vegetables, soup and dips. The rice is flavorful and the chicken is very tender.

Singapore Chicken Rice's Nasi Lemak

Also on the menu is another well known favorite– Nasi Lemak. Nasi Lemak, I’ve been told by owner Xian Lim, is typically served in the morning, pretty much the same I guess as sinangag ang tuyo is to us Filipinos. The dish is composed of rice, fried egg, fried dilis, peanuts and sambal that you mix together before eating.

I tried the chow mein called Pancit Chino and to be honest, I don’t think I’ve smelled pancit that smelled like it. It is so aromatic! And it tastes just as good as it smells. The noodles are firm and it is seasoned just right.

Of course we can’t talk Singaporean food without mentioning Laksa. Singapore Chicken rice’s Laksa is a mildly spicy noodle dish in rich curry soup that is made from leaves instead of the usual curry powder.

So just how affordable is affordable? The Chicken Rice is only Php 95.00 and a bowl of laksa is Php75.00. The Pancit Chino is Php 55.00 and the the Nasi Lemak is only Php 35.00! Add in an extra Php 15.00 and you get a tall refreshing glass of cold calamansi juice. Food is cooked by a Singaporean cook as ordered and servings are good for one person.

Singapore Chicken rice also delivers. Delivery is free in selected areas for a minimum order of Php 300.00. The restaurant is open from 7 AM to 10 PM daily.

Roti Prata at Juz Suri

One of the best things about Plurk is that I discover places to try. One of these is Juz Suri, a food court concessionaire at the Shopwise Supermarket in Cubao. After doing some business at the PAL office in Alimall, I popped into Shopwise to check out if this stall serving Singaporean dishes is as good as they said in Plurk.

Lisa Leung at Tang City

Top Singaporean chef Lisa Leong flew in to Manila recently to demonstrate the uses of MCT products by hosting a cooking demo at Tang City in Glorietta. Aside from being a top chef, Chef Leong has long been an advocate of healthy living and healthful eating.

Normally, when we hear healthful food, we think of bland, and tasteless food. Well, Chef Leong came to show us that healthful food can also taste great.

During the event, she demonstrated how these products can be used as substitutes to other ingredients. By the way, most MCT products used in the demo are coconut based, such as the MCT COCOS Powder- which is a good substitute in recipes calling for coconut milk or cream-and the SUPER COCO Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.

She first made some Kaya, a Singaporean jam, using the MCT Cocos Powder and the COCOS Pandan Coconut Oil. These were then served for us to sample on some hot, toasted bread. That was the first time I’ve had Kaya, and I have to say, I loved it! It was so good.

Next, Chef Leong made a rice dish called Nasi Lemak, again using the MCT COCOS Powder and the COCOS Pandan Coconut Oil. These were served with the usual sidings.

Another Singaporean delight she made was the Dancing Singapore Laksa, her take on the traditional Laksa. It was basically the same, except that she used the Dancing Chef Laksa Paste, the MCT COCOS Powder and the COCOS Pandan Coconut Oil.

For dessert, Chef Leong made some Jingle Glass Jell-O, again using the MCT COCOS Powder in place of the milk. It looked pretty much like the Stained Glass/ Cathedral Windows Jelly we’re used to.

And, she also baked a delicious Pandan Cake using a rice cooker! How awesome is that?!

Who says you’d have to deprave yourself just to be healthy? This array of New Asian Style cuisine by Lisa Leong proves to us why great-tasting, healthful food is far from being a myth.
