The last time I was in Singapore, I ate like there was no tomorrow. I ate everything I could get my hands on and everywhere I could stand. I wanted to imbibe as much of the local food as I possibly could. I boarded my flight back a happy man. My fellow passengers weren’t too pleased with my burps, but I couldn’t care less. I was satiated. When the guy sitting next to me asked me what I ate, I didn’t know where to begin. I just remembered all those plates of authentic goodness and my mouth started watering. I went into a kind of trance and started day dreaming about my gastronomical journey.
Here’s the thing – you can either go out and eat at a local hawker centre or a posh restaurant and come back home feeling that you’ve had a great culinary journey, and reminisce about it, and drool like an idiot – like I did. Or, you could bring a piece of that authentic taste back with you.
For someone who’s new to Singapore and asks around about authentic local food, invariably, four out of five people would recommend Hai’s soup packs and ready-to-cook sauces.
One doesn’t have to be a chef to use these packs. Designed for novices, Hai’s products will ensure that your non-existent culinary talents are well-hidden from the world when you make their famous Bak Kut Teh or use their Chilli Sauce in your food. People are going to be awe and worship you as a culinary God. Only you and I would know the truth.
So, head over to the Bazaar and grab yourself some of Hai’s products and show your friends and family how good of a cook you are.
