If you have a strong nose for sniffing out quality hawker fare, then you’ve probably heard that Resorts World Sentosa is launching the Malaysian Food Street at noon today.
What makes this permanent food street so special, you ask? Here are five things that will make your visit oh so sweet.
A scouting committee trekked through Malaysia for eight months, eating at well over 200 hawker stores to source for the most authentic tastes with solid histories. The result? 17 food stalls with flavours that cannot be found anywhere in Singapore; so be prepared for phenomenal bites without crossing the causeway.
Old shophouses, weathered signboards, tar roads, and quaint furnishings, the 1950s theme lends a nostalgic feel while you tuck into Char Koay Teow and slurp Prawn Mee. It reminds us of the days when we would follow our grandparents to the nearest coffeehouse to share a cup of kopi.
Prices at the Malaysian Food Street are comparable to your regular foodcourt prices, with mains starting from $4 (like the Penang Lim Brothers’ Char Koay Teow!)
Who can dislike the star dessert of the Malaysian Food Street? The first bite is heavenly and gets better with every mouthful. This chendol from Penang serves up icy goodness with just the right amount of coconut milk and gula merah. Store owner Madam Loh Swee Gain even lovingly hand makes the green chendol jelly from scratch. Now that’s quality food.
The Air Conditioning
If icy treats can’t cool you down enough, you can be rest assured that our fully air-conditioned venue will. So chow down on delectable hawker food in cool, humid-free comfort. We know we were glad to get out of the scorching afternoon heat.
The Malaysian Food Street is located at The Bull Ring and is open daily from 11am-10pm (Monday-Thursday); 9am-12midnight (Friday to Saturday); 9am-10pm (Sunday).
We will welcome our first guest at noon on 12 January (Thursday).
