Singaporean dishes are influenced by different cultures. This may have been because of the fact that Singapore historically started as a port area for trade. The presence of different cultures from traders as well as immigrants greatly contributed to the evolution of Singapore Cuisine. At present, we can safely say that a typical Singapore dish is heavily influenced by Chinese, Indian, Malay and British culture.
When our AirAsia flight from the Philippines arrived at around eleven in the morning, first thing I had in mind is food, the good thing is that after a quick visit at the Merlion Park , one of Singapore’s Iconic destination, we headed to the Blue Ginger for lunch.
The Blue Ginger
The Blue Ginger is located along Tanjong Pagar Road, looking at the structures here it seems like its Singapore’s version of Calle Crisologo in Vigan. Upon arriving, we were led to the second level of the building and I came to know later that the restaurant is composed of three levels. I was not mistaken when I said to myself that we were in for a treat, because we were served with, which I believe, their best dishes. Just in case you happen to visit Blue Ginger in Singapore, the following might give you an idea on what to order.
The Blue Ginger Experience
The Blue Ginger serves Peranakan dishes which means their dishes are the fusion of Chinese, Malay and other influences when combined together makes an entirely unique dish. There is only one thing i could say about the Peranakan dish from Blue Ginger, it was delicious! So if you ever visit Singapore, it is a must for you to try the Peranakan dish from Blue Ginger to understand the Singaporean Culture when it comes to food.
