1. Yu Kee Duck Rice

Yu Kee Duck Rice with specialty chilli

Yu Kee (友記) has been serving Teochew-style braised duck rice since 1961. You’ll be delighted to find out that Yu Kee serves their flavourful and tender braised duck meat on a bed of savory yam rice – a classic pairing that has withstood the test of time. Right before serving, the dish is lightly splashed with thickened brown sauce that gives each mouthful a subtle herbal flavour and comfortable texture. All this is already enough to make the average Singaporean wet (their mouths) but what really places Yu Kee a cut above the rest is their specialty chilli. This reddish brown paste is concocted with spices and ikan bilis, thus granting it a complex flavour profile that teases the tongue with gentle heat while framing the duck rice with added umami.

2. Ah Tai Hainanese Chicken Rice

Ah Tai's Chicken Rice from Maxwell Hawker Centre

Ah Tai Hainanese Chicken Rice is helmed by Wong Liang Tai, a former chef of the famed Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice, who boasts over two decades’ worth of culinary experience. This has culminated in a delectable plate of chicken rice – fluffy, flavour-packed rice crowned with succulent chicken, with skin so flawless that your girlfriend would be totally jealous. Superstars come with bodyguards and Ah Tai’s chicken rice is no exception, every plate is also accompanied by their “sidekicks” of tangy chilli and fragrant black sauce.

3. Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa

Sungei Road Michelin Laksa from Hong Lim Complex

Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa is a 4-time winner of the Michelin’s Bib Gourmand Award. The accolades are absolutely deserved as these guys serve up a playfully inventive take on laksa that is so good that you’ll wonder why their version isn’t more common around our sunny island. While most laksa dishes let the coconut milk take centre-stage, Sungei Road Trishaw redefines “laksa” by highlighting the seafood tones instead. Their version derives most of its intensity from seafood – an assortment of dried shrimp, scallop and oysters – and coconut milk is added only sparingly so as to avoid masking the delightful flavours of the sea. The result is a laksa with a lighter body yet equally rich flavours, allowing diners to enjoy the meal without getting too “jelak”.
