We’re still in Singapore and, as you might know, Singapore is a very multicultural and diverse place
with lots of different nationalities, religions, languages and, of course, foods.
And today, we are going to eat. Singapore has a lot of hawker places,
which are like open food courts with different stalls and amazing food.
We have chosen to go to Tiong Bahru Market. Let’s go!
I think there is something so exotic about food courts in different countries.
Oh, that looks exciting and that looks exciting!
Yeah, you really get something from a lot of different countries. There’s so much variety here.
I know, but I just want to go “aaaaaah” for all the different things.
What do you feel like eating? What should we eat?
Maybe we should split up and meet later on, and we can compare food?
Compare or share?
I struggle with sharing, but I could be kind this time. Ok. Sharing is caring.
Which way are you going to go and which way am I going to go?
I’ll go this way. You go that way. Okay, fine. See you. Bye!
Oh my gosh. It’s a whole duck.
And it was voted a “best food” award in 2013, 2014, and 2017.
Keep that in mind. Let’s discover.
This is a famous kind of vegetable they have here, baby kai lan.
You can see a lot of people eating it around here.
I can’t imagine how many dishes are here, so it’s very difficult to make a choice.
I always try to see if there are a lot of people queuing for the food. That means it’s something good.
Or, if it has won an award or something, then that also means it’s something good.
Of course, you want to try the best.
There are even more places there. Let’s have a look.
I think this is a goodies stand, guys. Oh my gosh. It looks so nice.
They were featured in the newspaper. Goodies that will sweeten your day.
This is another place to note, but I’m like this: I need to see everything - what my selection is -
before I make the final choice, So we’re going to go look more.
Alright, let’s see what the food court has to offer. I’m sure I’ll find something great.
I’m waiting for that ah-ha moment.
Koh Brother Pig’s Organ Soup. I don’t actually eat that much meat,
so pig’s organ soup sounds a bit much for me. Um yeah, let’s continue.
It gets very hot here in Singapore, so a nice refreshing juice looks tasty.
You’ve got a lot of options there. You’ve got coconut, lime, soybean …
I might get one of those, actually.
But let’s continue and look for something to eat. There’s a lot of different stuff here.
Are those eggs? They’re green. The eggs I’m used to eating are white
and these ones are dark green, so I’m very intrigued.
So, you take your own food.
Well then, we’ll just take anything that looks interesting.
This looks good. It looks like it’s got some vegetables inside.
This pancake thing looks nice. There we go. And one of these, and one of those eggs of course.
Minimum three! Minimum three? Okay.
They look very interesting. Thank you. This is going to be exciting.
Oh, there’s Liam. Thank god. I’m starving.
Hello there! Hello. Look what I have.
What a feast we have here. Oh, I know.
Here, let me put this down carefully.
What did you get?
I don’t know what they’re called, but I got some exciting stuff.
The things I’m most excited about on my plate are these eggs.
These are eggs? Yes.
But they’re black!
They are. And do you see the patterns they’ve got there?
They look like snowflakes almost. Oh, it does. That’s super cute!
And then I’ve got this pancake thing, and a spicy sauce there and a sweet sauce here.
Oh, the pink sauce is sweet. That’s nice. Okay, now do you want to hear about what I got?
I sure do.
This is duck that they had here and the place had a lot of awards.
I’m guessing they’re sort of famous, so I thought we should try that.
Then I also got some vegetarian options. I have some spicy tofu and the local vegetable,
the green one, which everybody seems to take, so I had to try that as well.
And, now wait for it, the best is yet to come.
Some people might say this is one of the tastiest things they have ever tried, so I’m very excited.
This is the famous Singapore chilli crab and black pepper crab and apparently, they’re supposed to be very special.
What should we start with?
Should we dig in? Yes. Let’s do that.
Let’s go. Should we start with tofu?
Yes. That one looks delicious.
So, have they fried these? Yes. Fried tofu.
Mmmm. Good. This was very good.
A little spicy, but not too much. I want another one, if you don’t mind.
I don’t mind. I can have another one, too. We’re off to a flying start, ladies and gentlemen.
Let’s try this vegetable. What was this called again?
If only I remembered. Something …. Kai lan?
Onto the next one.
We’ll go for cucumber, rice and some duck.
Okay. The duck is 10 points. The duck is amazing.
I’m a bit of a messy eater.
It’s really, really good. It comes with two sauces.
You have a spicy sauce and a sort of sweet sauce. I think it was sweet. Yeah.
Very nice. I love the duck.
So far, I think the tofu is my favorite, though. I have to say.
Give me your plate.
Those are my plates with a bunch of stuff and I don’t know what it is.
Except this is …. An egg. That we know.
I want to try this. You said this is sweet.
This is sweet. This is spicy.
I’m going to try this. I’m going to take one of these things.
Let’s go with the spicy one first.
This cracker is sort of sweet, I think. It’s very nice. Wow! That sauce is very delicious.
Oh. This other one was a little bit slimy for me. Your face looked alarming.
Go for it. It’s like a pink snail sauce.
Oh, there’s another one. Yeah, there’s one hiding underneath.
It’s hiding there. I have no idea what it is.
Well, let’s see. I think this is some kind of seafood.
What do you think? I can’t read your expressions.
A special kind of seafood cake.
It was a little bit salty and also somewhat on a slimy level.
It was not as slimy as the pink sauce, but quite slimy, my friends, quite slimy.
You go for the egg. Alright. The moment I have been waiting for.
OMG, this egg is like gel. It is, right?
It’s like gel. It doesn’t feel like an egg.
And you see it’s got these rings here. It’s almost like when you chop down
a tree and you can see how old it is. So, this egg is three years old.
It just tastes like an egg.
It doesn’t taste different with the gel thing.
The texture is different, but the taste, for me, is just like a hard-boiled egg.
Are you just saying that so I try it? Well, there’s only one way to find out.
Oh my gosh. I think he’s tricking me.
It does taste like an egg.
Liam, I really want to try the spicy chilli crab.
Some people say it’s the best food they’ve ever tasted
compared to all the other foods in the world, so let’s see.
So not just in Singapore, but anywhere? Yeah!
I’ve actually never had crab before. Really? You’ve never had crab?
No. Okay, then you have to take the first piece.
Right. So this is a big moment. Should we eat it at the same time?
One, two, three. Wow.
Do you like it? Yes, and there the spice came.
I want to try this black pepper crab as well.
I guess it’s the same kind of crab, just a different sauce.
Okay, it’s out. Look. There’s a piece there. Very good.
Should I try black pepper? Yeah. Go for it.
It’s spicy as well. Yes.
Which one do you like more?
I think I slightly prefer the chilli crab, but by a small margin.
Okay, that’s good.
I’m going to take that small margin from you because I like the black pepper.
Okay, perfect. I love food and food loves me back.
Amazing city. Amazing food. Indeed.
Liam, what did you like the most?
I would have to say, I loved the tofu and I also really liked the chilli crab.
What about you? What did you like? The black pepper crab. It was so good.
It was actually a new experience for me. You know, I’d never tried crab before.
Normally, I eat vegetarian food when I’m at home.
What about you guys? Do you prefer vegetarian food or food with meat?
