Chasing a Plate - Thomas & Sheena Recipe



In this 4 part series, we’re travelling all over Singapore to show you the best local food. Singapore has an exciting street food culture and great food can be found at hawker centres and small restaurants all over the island. In this video we’re eating some Singaporean local favourites.

We start with fried Hokkien prawn mee at a stall in Toa Payoh food centre- a family business that has been running since the 60s- it’s the best Hokkien prawn mee we’ve had in Singapore to date. Next up we head to Fatty Cheong Roast- famous for their char siew (barbecue pork). They use the meat from under the armpit of the pig and it’s said to be super flavoursome. We cool down with a cendol next- a must eat snack/dessert in this part of the world made up of shaved ice, gula melaka, pandan noodles and coconut milk. Finally we finish with a bowl of heritage wantan noodles- simple, well executed comfort food from a noodle cart turned restaurant which is using a 3 generations old family recipe. Hope you enjoyed this Singapore street food tour! #singaporefood #singaporestreetfood #singaporeanfood

Love the food in Singapore! Good vlog! So many kind of food~! Love the way you eat!

Sharky Fernandez on July 7, 2019

It's interesting how different the noodles are to the Malaysian versions. I've not tried it in Singapore and admit to some scepticism (suspicion?) to the flavours but I'll take your word for it!

Okay, I just watched all your Singapore series in one sitting and am seriously craving some Hawker food now. I don't think the chicken I've got roasting in the oven is going to cut it.

The Hokkian Mee looks tasty!

Aida Russell on September 12, 2019

Gidday. New subscriber here. I’m a Singaporean married to a kiwi living in Oz. Your food channel is making both me and my hubby very very jelly. 😋

Thomas looks a little bit like Mark wiens.. maybe the eyes..

Phil Travel on October 21, 2019

I love eating at Hawker Centres in Singapore. I went to Chinatown Complex and Geylang Serai Hawker Centres.

sis on November 28, 2019

as a singaporean, that’s not enough sambal for the hokkien mee in my opinion

Topi Drama on December 26, 2019

China traitors singaporeans are same China communist mindset people with just some English in their mouths. 😂

Simple noodle looks so yummy
Its similar with Korean street food bibim myeon

I didn't get it. The only thing that OI probably liked was the bar-b-q pork. Noodles (carb) are definitely not my favorite and I didn't know what was special about them.

Hing-Cheong Choi on July 29, 2020

Almost 10 eggs with huge amounts of bean sprout & noodles for the Hokkien Mee. Since the Char Siew is not red, the meat is overpower with marinated dark soy sauce. I'm thinking where can I find some cendol this weekend for my refreshment. Since won ton is the star of the noodle, he didn't tell anything about it other than the noodles and the Char Siew.
