Visiting Singapore: Rasapura Masters Food Court

The Rasapura Masters Food Court, located at Basement 2 of the The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, offers a wide array of mouth-watering delicacies from Southeast Asia. There's even a Gerry's Grill, but we decided to skip the Filipino food to try the ethnic flavors of Singapore.

This high-end food court is at the Canal Level of The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, just beside the skating rink.

A branch of the Filipino restaurant, Gerry's Grill.

The food center's luxurious setup lets customers watch while their food is being expertly prepared by cooks through the exposed kitchen behind the counter. This certainly fueled my already burgeoning appetite for Singapore's gastronomic delights.

We ended up ordering mostly Chinese dishes, though.:) That's because many of the food we saw will not pass the standards of my son's picky taste buds. Especially the more spicy Indian and Malay cuisine.

Noodlestar's La Mian with Braised Beef which is basically just pieces of superbly tender and delectable beef floating with hand-made egg noodles in beef broth. This is definitely the best noodle soup I have tasted so far. And to think that I grew up living in a Chinese community.

La Mian with Braised Beef, 8 SGD (Php 280).

We bought some dim sum as well to go with the hot soup. The real star is the Pork Dumplings. I have tried quite a lot of nice Pork Siew Mais (steamed meat dumplings) but this one takes home the prize. The size of the morsel which was more than twice that of a regular pork dumpling and its meaty goodness totally pleased my carnivorous palate.

Prawn and Pork Dumplings, 4 SGD per order (Php 140).

We also finally tried the Hainanese Chicken Rice, a classic Singaporean dish. We chose the roasted chicken over the steamed. The chicken alone is nothing special but combine it with the Hainanese (ginger) rice and the flavorful condiments and you've got yourself a real winner.

Hainanese Chicken Rice, 8 SGD (Php 280). The condiments (soy sauce, chilli sauce and ginger sauce) brought this dish to a whole new level. 

For our refreshments, we ordered Fresh Watermelon Juice and a cup of Fresh Dragon Fruit Juice which turned out to be quite good.

Fresh Dragon Fruit and Watermelon Juice, 4 SGD (Php 140).

Rasapura Masters absolutely raised the bar for mall food courts. Ultra-posh surroundings and a great variety of food choices right smack in the middle of shopping heaven.
