Pennsylvanian white pizza
Have you ever heard of ‘White Pizza’ (sounds like the albino version of the regular pizza doesn’t it?)? Well if you haven’t then you should have, because it is certainly worth travelling all the way to Pennsylvania to experience. Made from creamy cheese covering the double crust on the top and bottom, this pizza is called the ‘Old Forge White Pizza’ and it is much different and unique from any other italian food singapore that you might have tasted.
The Georgian eggplant
While you can obviously taste eggplant dishes from any part of the world in any country simply because it is used a lot of dishes, in Georgia this dish is given a different twist. Made using pureed walnuts, spices and eggplant, this is an appetizer which is served cold. So if you ever plan on visiting Georgia don’t forget to ask for an ‘Eggplant Satsivi’.
Vietnamese clam dish
Ngheu Hap Xa or the Vietnamese clam dish is made from plumpybaby clams cooked with lemon grass and served hot hot to your table. So if you are a fan of seafood this is certainly a dish that you should be ordering if you ever visit a restaurant there. Remember though when sipping on this lemongrass broth with clams, make sure that you add in that sweet chili saucefor a more flavored and appetizing dish.
The Malaysian milk rice served on a banana leaf wrap
For a traditional and flavored dish, you should definitely be trying a Nasi Lemak from Malaysia. This is a dish that is wrapped and served on a banana leaf with rice prepared using coconut milk, half a hard boiled egg, fried chicken, devilled squid, chili anchovies, peanuts and cucumber. Make sure to eat it steaming hot though if you want to experience the flavors and sweet smell!
South Korean cold noodles
This is probably the first time you would have heard of noodles being served cold, but in Korea this is a popular dish that is served frequently in the blazing hot summer days. These noodles are flavored with Korean red pepper paste sauce known as ‘Gochujang’ and the entire dish is called ‘BibimGuksu’.
