Best crab bee hoons in Singapore

It’s a delicate balance – ensuring thick rice noodles remain springy in a sweet, milky broth that doesn’t overwhelm with its hints of ginger, pepper or the smoky goodness of the claypot it’s cooked in. There’s also a dry version (this list features both), where thinner rice noodles are tossed in a hot wok before stewing in a broth until every strand is permeated with similar sweetness. The male crabs generally have flakier flesh and meatier claws, while female crabs are prized for their denser meat and orange orbs of creamy roe. If you are ordering this dish as part of a larger meal, allocate at least 1kg worth of crab for three people.

Best quiches in Singapore

When it comes to this savoury tart, there’s no concession for store-bought dough. Crusts (often a pâte brisée or flaky pie dough) should be handmade and preferably blind-baked to stay crisp enough to contain the slightly quivering custard within. Yet, its buttery richness should crumble and melt in your mouth. This is not the time for calorie-counting either – full-fat dairy makes for eggy fillings that are almost soufflé-like. Lastly, no matter the toppings, they should all be cooked separately to render their full flavour before they get tossed into the mix.

Best tacos in Singapore

Authentic Mexican tacos never come in crispy corn shells (that’s a sure sign of a butchered Tex-Mex variant). They’re always soft – made from corn or wheat flour – and piled high with seasoned meats, piquant salsa and flavour builders like onions and coriander. No wonder this street food is fast coming back into vogue.
