Some of Singapore favorite food are chicken rice and steamboat.
I believe the best steamboat should be cook in claypot using charcoal. And tip into the fried shallots oil with soya sauce. Now a days because of convenience it is usually cook by gas and metal utensils.
The soup will be the tastiest, if you don't mind spending some time.
My mother had been cooking for 50 years, she use to cook very tasty soup for us.
My all time favourite dish is fresh chicken cook by my mother. Usually at the Chinese New Year she will prepare my favourite food- chicken dump sticks(a bit raw).
An old chicken seller, teach my mother to cook the best chicken rice it need to a bit of raw. So that when you eat it, it is very smooth.
Combined with the fried shallot oil, with light soya sauce and sliced spring onions, putting the three together in bowl.
To cook the sliced shallots to perfection. Burn the wok hot. Then put the oil in, throw in the sliced onion. Cook until it is yellow, stop the fire, should not be brown. Because later it will turn darker and not so tasty.
This combination of near raw chicken and fried shallot oils, will bring unforgettable experience.
