Singapore Food Festival holds contest for Uniquely Singapore dish
Wong Bun Huge, one of the judges, said: "With their skills, knowledge, experience.....put together all those fine and great ingredients, I think they can do a good job."
A one-of-a-kind Singapore creation, the Rojak Prawn Balls in Pocket Bean Curd came up tops in the healthy cuisine category.
The dish is a fragrant, unique combination of fruits, rojak sauce, bean curd and prawn.
The winner, Foong Kok Thin, said: "I tried to capture our local flavour and our Singapore goal to lead a healthy lifestyle. So, I did some research for a dish that could represent a truly Singaporean flavour."
And to make it a truly international yet Singaporean contest, a Thai chef emerged tops in the seafood category with his ambitiously titled creation - Lord of the Seas
The Chef is obviously trying very hard to justify the abomination he created. If that is a "truely Singaporean flavour", then let me starve.
Like that also can win a prize, I also can make a Uniquely Singaporean Dish.
Just anyhow mix totally unreleated Singapore food together. How about
- Spicy Popiah served with Satay Sauce
- Char Kuay Teow served in a Uniquely Singaporean Durian Shell
- Curry Fish Head Laksa served with warm Tiger Beer
Note that there was previously attempts in making a Uniquely Singaporean icon.
And look at the name of the dish - "Lord of the Sea", it sure reminds you of another equally crappy Uniquely Singaporean Sitcom - "Masters of the Sea", older Singaporeans will remember.
Uniquely Singaporean Balls in Tau Hu Pocket. Yummm
Why is Singapore (Government) so hard up into making everything uniquely Singaporean? Isn't a simple, well made rojak, laksa good enough?
