SOME SHAVED ICE FOR YOU?

1 comments

Ice Kacang can be found at most of the place in Singapore so that people who are craving for something cold can get their hands on it easily. I suppose the reason why Ice Kacang is so commonly found in Singapore is due to the intense heat of the weather. Nowadays, Singaporeans have evolved the old and simple Ice Kacang into a whole new level. There are now many different variety of flavours to choose from. Including durian, mango, the traditional red beans, sweet corn, grass jelly, as well as those with chocolate toppings. I'm sure that if you've been living in Singapore all this while, you have got to be kidding if you say you have not tried Ice Kacang. You can easily find Ice Kacang at hawker centre, food courts, certain coffee shops and etc. their costs ranged from $1.20 and above depending on where you are eating this from.

Remember we visited the National Museum? We managed to find a old Ice Kacang maker at the museum.

Roti Prata/Roti Canai!

0 comments

In modern Singapore, Roti Prata had become a dish that not only attracts indians but also people of other races even foreigners. This had become a popular dish for people who are craves for a bite in the middle of the night or even breakfast. In some places, you can actually see "live performances" by the prata man in which they show you the process of making prata. There are a variety of curry to choose from, like chicken, mutton, and fish. Roti Prata has also added more variety to itself, there are cheese prata, chocolate prata, egg, and many more.

We tried to make the Prata on our own after just looking at how others did it. We had no clue what to do and we merely took the ingredients we needed and headed down to one of our group member's house for a trial of Prata making! Please enjoy and dont mind the clumsy-ness!





 Our second prata!
 Our final Egg Prata!
We had fun making the prata as you can see from our faces.
 

Food that keep us wanting more.
