It is no secret how Indonesian food in Singapore became immensely popular. Most usually, it is because of the cuisine being rich, flavorful, and full of spices. Among the must-try Indonesian dishes that are available in most Singapore restaurants, below are considered the 5 best ones:
Usually associated with the rich taste of coconut milk and spicy chili, this dish has also captured the taste buds and the hearts of both local Singaporeans and tourists. Minang cuisine put great emphasis in three lements; gulai or curry, lado or chili pepper, and bareh or rice. Basically, a Padang meal is only padang authentic when these three elements are present. In Indonesia, once customers are seated, the server would serve a lot of dishes to the table usually in small plates. They are normally stacked and the customers are free to choose whatever dish they’d like to eat and return those that they do not fancy that much. This custom, however, has not been followed in Singapore. For some Padang food, customers can try about two outlets in Singapore that serve quite authentic Padang cuisine. Among the cooking traditions in Indonesian cuisine, Minangkbu cuisine and most of Sumatran cuisine demonstrate Middle Eastern and Indian influences, with dishes cooked in curry sauce with coconut milk and their fondness ot use heavy mixture of spices.
These Indonesian dishes are also healthy just like Thai dishes. And the best thing about it? You can find Indonesian food in Singapore!
