2 more Singaporean Dishes that Deserve a Spot on Your Event Menu

Many Singaporean dishes are a cross between two or more foreign recipes. You’ll often find Chinese, Indian, Malay and even western influences in many of Singapore’s local dishes.


However, that doesn’t make those dishes any less special. If you are planning to organize a catered event, make sure your halal catering company offers a large variety of Singaporean food to choose from.


For instance, we already talked about Hainanese chicken, fried Kway Teow and Satay. Here are some more Singaporean dishes that deserve a spot on your event menu.


1. Hokkien Mee

Hokkien Mee is basically egg or rice noodles often stir-fried with prawns or chicken slices. The dish is often served with salads, sambal sauce and lime.


The chef may also add some vinegar and soy sauce to the noodles to make the dish even more delicious. The dish originates from the Hokkien province of China, hence the name Hokkien Mee.


At Continental Delight, we offer Wok fried Hokkien Mee. As the name suggests, we prepare the dish by stir frying the ingredients in a wok.


2. Gyoza

These are basically fried dumplings stuffed with vegetables and ground meat and often served with chili and garlic sauce. While Gyoza has its origin in China, it is well-known in Singapore as a popular Japanese recipe.


Gyoza in Singapore comes wrapped in thin dough. In comparison, Gyoza in China, AKA pot stickers come with much thicker dough. Depending on how they are cooked, many different types of Gyoza are available in Singapore. For instance, you’ll find pan fried, boiled and deep fried Gyoza, just to name a few.


Gyoza could be a great side dish or appetizer to your event menu. At Continental Delight, we offer deep fried seafood Gyoza as a traditional Asian side dish and Japanese fried Gyoza as a side dish in our supreme buffet menu.
