We liked Singapore Chili Crabs. Done in tomato based gravy made with garlic, ginger and fresh red chilis, the crabs were flavorful and tasted brilliant. Another favorite was Bak-kut-the, a Chinese soup popularly served in Malaysia & Singapore. It means ‘meat bone tea’. The simple broth soup with pork ribs was loved for its evocative scents and earthy flavors.Singapore Street Food Festival at K3 JW Marriott Delhi AerocityThe Singapore Street Food Festival will be running till 31stAugust 2014 and is available as a part of the daily Lunch/Dinner and Sunday Brunch buffet at K3, priced at:a.
