Are the places featured still a little far off for you? Why not try out some of these recipes by the members of our SGN community instead:

Check out Monica Devi Lim’s three-part Lockdown Cooking series that features authentic Singapore chicken rice, an Asian take on pasta vongole, and some indulgent (very guilty) bakes. If you’re looking for something hearty, why not try out Rozz’s recipes for bak kut teh porridge and bak chor bee hoon

Pro tip: You can pop by your local Asian grocer to pick up most of the ingredients. Don’t forget to keep a look out for familiar brands!
