West Coast Market and Food Centre

3 Jun

Near the place where I stayed in Singapore, there’s a hawker center opposite to West Coast Plaza which is called West Coast Market and Food Centre. So, one day for lunch, we headed towards this hawker and ordered some food to go. One of those things were the delicious sate as you can see above.

One of the places where we stopped to buy some food was the one above (and below) which was called Arifin Ali Indian Muslim Food. It had all kinds of great food and as I can recall this was the place where we bought mee goreng and murtabak. One of the things that I really wanted to try in Singapore was a dish called: Soup Toulang, which is a bone marrow soup in a thick red, strangely looking sauce. Unfortunately, they hadn’t prepared it yet (they made a large pot every day) so I couldn’t order it.

As I was walking trough the hawker and between all the people eating at the tables I looked around and chose what I wanted to eat: Chicken Rice.

As a classical Singapore dish, this was something I had to try before leaving Singapore. So at one of the stalls, I ordered it.

Here is the oh so simple looking, but oh so delicious Chicken Rice:

What is so great is that both the chicken and the rice are cooked in a very tasteful broth, so the chicken and the rice are rich in flavor. Add some of the condiments and this simple dish is simply fantastic. Although this was a modest version of the dish, there are also more elaborate versions.
