About the tour

Chicken Rice is one of the great staples in the small island nation of Singapore, it's a shockingly easy dish that will dazzle you. The country of Singapore though small has a rich history one can write many books about. Living in Singapore gave me an interesting perspective on all things delicious, as we prepare this dish let's have a talk on trade routes, their importance, and how they change the culture and cuisine of places. What you'll need: Chicken (I use thigh, but honestly ANY CUT except the neck will do, however much you'd like to eat) Sesame Seed Oil (1 tsp per 100 g of chicken) Soy Sauce (2 tsp per 100 g of chicken) Chicken Stock/Bullion Cube (Twice the cups of rice) Rice (any number of cups, it dictates the amounts of other ingredients) Ginger (1 tbsp per cup of rice) Garlic (1 tbsp per cup of rice) Shallots or Onions (2 tbsp per cup of rice) Scallions (optional) Red Chillies (optional)

Nice job. I would have liked to have a recipe that I could have taken a postcard of but I wrote down most of it. Thanks for the history along with the food. I enjoyed this very much.

A card with the written recipe on that we could take a postcard of would have been helpful. Very interesting!

Followed the Cooking Singapore Chicken rice tour. Easy to follow. And cool mini history, and very interactive guide. Enjoyed this a lot. The only suggestion would be to add postcard for the recipe in case everyone just jumped in live without reading the tour notes ahead of time, and also an opportunity to take a picture of the map of Singapore. There were also some words used in the history and food talk that may need spelling ahead of time so that people could look up after and read more about. Terima Kasih for the tour!
