It’s been a while friends! I’m currently on my lunch break before I head to my next class so I thought I should update my blog.
Since we’re on the topic of lunch, one of the things I absolutely love about studying at SIM is that it has a wide range of food choices on campus to satisfy different appetites and taste buds. SIM is very culturally diverse – I have classmates from different corners of the world like India, Korea, Myanmar and Indonesia just to name a few! I personally feel that the abundance of food choices can be very comforting for us foreign students in Singapore, being so far away from home.
The food courts do get super crowded during lunch hour and since I get asked all the time what’s good to eat here, this is my list of top 5 must-try dishes at SIM!
Where: Block A, Foodclique
Always dependable and great value for money, Foodclique is a crowd favourite among all students!
1. Stall name: Indonesian Express (Halal)
Must-try: Nasi Ayam Penyet
A delicious dish of “smashed” fried chicken and rice. Served with an addictive sambal (chilli), sliced cucumbers and fried tofu on a bed of rice doused in curry. I was told that this touch of curry is unique to this stall! This dish is great for spicy food lovers like me, but if you can’t handle the heat, add in some sweet sauce to make it more manageable.
Also recommended: Steamed Chicken Set, Ikan Dory Set
2. Stall name: Vegetarian
This is the default choice for those on a diet, or if you simply want to eat healthier. For me, I come to enjoy a quick, guilt-free meal in between classes. I like that there’s a good variety of items like baby corn, protein balls, seaweed tofu, pasta and potato salad to choose from.
Price: From S$4.20 onwards
Also recommended: Try the Japanese Sesame Sauce salad dressing!
3. Stall name: Noodles
Where: Blk B, Foodfest (Halal)
An alternative for halal food in SIM!
5. Hainanese Chicken Rice
Must-try: Hainanese Chicken Rice
One of Singapore’s most famous local food! Whether you like your chicken steamed or roasted, you must enjoy this heavenly dish with its three accompanying dips: garlic chilli, ginger and dark soya sauces.
Also recommended: Upgrade your dish to a more nutritional meal by adding vegetables (Kailan), braised egg and tofu!
These are my recommendations but don’t just take my words for it! Watch my friends have a go at some of the dishes above on the SIM YouTube Channel here.
I have to rush off to my next class now, catch you later!
