Comfort food correlates with flavors for familiarity and a sense of belongings. With the city being associated with multiculturalism, it is no wonder for a gastronomic adventure in our daily lives. Yet, some days, the memories crave for something that reminds of us home and this guide on the best places for Comfort Food In Singapore will come in handy.
1) Scotch Eggs @ Rabbit Carrot Gun
Resembling cafes just like in England with a menu backing it up,a visit to Rabbit Carrot Gun is as casual it gets perfect for a Sunday morning over a nice cup of tea and some serious award-winning Scotch Eggs featuring lava-ish egg yolk cooked just right wrapped with minced spiced meat, before being coated in Panko crumbs and into the hot frying pan for some serious deliciousness. Other drooling dishes in the menu include Avacado Smash, Sheperd’s Pie and Fish & Chips (Duh) among other classics we bet you’ll come back more for!
2) German Cuisine @ Brotzeit
When one thinks of Germany, its finely crafted beer and pork-centric cuisine often come to mind. Singapore’s got their own version of German cuisine excellence! Brotzeit for the win!! From the usual schnitzels (pork chops) and haxen (pork knuckles)that are crazily crackling and juicy at the same time is best enjoyed over their in house German Beer.
3) American BBQ @ Red Eye Smokehouse
Where y’all carnivores at? We’re talking,US Angus beef brisket, beef short rib, pork jowl, pork belly, smoked duck and locally sourced chicken wings barbecued and charred to the juiciest utter blissfulness. Absolutely divine on their own yet Red Eye Smokehouse knows a thing or two on complementing the meat with their homemade spicy chipotle and sweet and tangy barbecue sauces to take it up a notch.
4) Sunday Roast @ Muddy Murphy’s
When you’re the oldest pub to be recognized, it’ll only make sense if they’re embedded in the hearts of fellow Singaporeans for a signature and the all-time winner goes to the hand-carved prime beef smothered in home-made gravy, creamy mash, fresh vegetables and Yorkshire pudding which most refer to Sunday roast. We like it to call it home. Count on em to load you up with beers and stout while you’re at it, devouring their classic menu!
5) French Cuisine @ Cafe & Bar Gavroche
Cafe & Bar Gavroche envisioned Paris in 1930 and brought its essence back to life through only the settings of the space but also with their comforting classic French dishes like Hearty red wine beef stew with root vegetables and French potatoes, authentic beef bourguignon at your service. The light eaters are in for a treat with rustic and hearty portions of freshly- baked croissants, signature croque- monsieur and pastries, along with French jams and egg dishes.
6) Ramen @ Nantsuttei
Let us all collectively realize that nothing scream comfort than a rich, thick broth, chewy noodles with chunks of char siew and glorious flavored egg with its glistening golden yolk! Nantsuttei’s version of ramen celebrates garlic in all aspects by slow-frying it seven times. The oil imparts a deep, heady fragrance to the creamy Tonkotsu (pork) broth with the firm noodles being served with marinated beansprouts, an egg, and slices of Smoky Chashu.
7) Award-Winning Burger @ Burnt Ends
If a restaurant is being recognized for its burger as no.12 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants of 2018, they ain’t playing around and we are in for a treat! Customizing the cooking style with coal, apple or almond wood, to achieve temperatures of over 1,700 degrees, the burgers here are strong in flavor with an addictive subtle smoky taste. We bet it won’t be your average pulled pork experience.
