    Mee Soto. A chicken noodle sold by Malays. The feature is the flavourful soup gravy.

    Have you seen the show on Netflix called "Street Food"? Your posts remind me of that show. Yum.

    No I haven't . Yes most of the food I depicted was originated from street food :smile:

    It’s a good show. Check it out if you have time.

    Chwee Kueh or steamed rice cakes. A very traditional inexpensive breakfast staple from the Teochews. It is topped with preserved radish and chilli. One local celebrity ever remarked that he will never eat this anymore as it reminded him of his poverty in his childhood.

    Putu Piring, specifically this is the Haig Road Putu Piring, supposedly the best here. A snack sold by the Malays. Mainly steamed rice flour and inside filling is a kind of palm sugar known as Gula melaka. To be eaten with coconut shavings by hand. The texture is very soft until you come across the semi melted sugar which gives some crunchy feeling. I tend to eat the Chinese version known as Kueh TuTu. It has a firmer texture and has fillings of coconut or peanuts or chocolate.
