Enter this red door at Chomp Chomp to experience big-time flavorful Singaporean "Hawker" style food. What is Hawker food? Singapore is world-famous for their colorful night food-markets, and wide array of food items so here is from mobile food carts, known as "hawkers." Chomp Chomp the two year old restaurant in the west village on Cornelia Street is the best place in the city to experience this fun and very tasty cuisine first-hand.
Having been fortunate to visit Singapore, looking at the menu, and checking out the dishes others were chowing down on brought back vivid "hawker" memories. Such as; BBQ Stingray, Shrimp Paste Fried Chicken, Salted Egg Yok Calamari Po'Boy, Oyster Omelette, Crab Vermicelli, Pork Belly - to name a few. For me, I went with an old favorite dish - Fried Hakkien Mee (stir fried noodles with seafood and Yu Choy Sauce in Seafood Stock. Found the dish very authentic in taste, with that hint of fire with the juicy noodles - and washed down with Singapore's own Tiger Beer, one of my favorite brews.
Chomp Chomp is an attractive restaurant with white brick walls, contemporary light-fixtures, colorful Asian-themed plates, and a handsome ornate six-door paneled Chinese door, of museum quality. The mood, is relaxed with soft jazz playing. The service is attentive and playful. Above features photo of Gun the manager, and waitress Pete.
