Fish and chips are probably one of the few dishes that we grew up with and it is a dish that’s fit for any occasion.
The first fish and chip shop is said to have opened in the 1860s in London and since then, the British snack has quickly become a staple food across many different countries due to how delicious it is and how easy it is to put together. With the delicious golden-brown fish fillets that are deep-fried to perfection and a simple side of crispy fries, what’s there not to like about this comforting dish?
From hipster cafes to hawker centres, you can find different renditions of this dish almost anywhere in Singapore. As a tribute to the humble English meal, we present to you a list of 14 fish and chips in Singapore you sea-riously need to check out.
Oysters are considered a luxurious treat in many parts of the world and they are highly prized by shellfish connoisseurs because of the decrease in supply in recent years. This saltwater delicacy comes in hundreds of varieties and each one of them carries their own unique taste and identity.
Oysters are bivalve molluscs that can be eaten raw, roasted or cooked, and most people prefer pairing them with luxurious wines. As with most premium seafood, oysters have their own categorisation—from grade 0 to grade 5—and prices are highly dependent on their respective grades. That means you can find both affordably priced oysters, as well as top-grade oysters that come with heavier price tags.
Our guide to 14 Best Places To Eat Oysters In Singapore gives you an overview of restaurants that offer the finest oysters so you can teleport yourself to oyster heaven.
Three years ago, I somehow chanced upon the stretch of restaurants at Greenwood Avenue.
In the dimly-lit restaurant, and in the company of a group of good friends; that dinner easily became one of the best meals in my life. Needless to say, the fish and chips I had at Greenwood Fish Market that night, was one of the best that I had in Singapore.
