Food is one important aspect of the traveling experience. Don’t you agree? It is a part that cannot be missed. We apply this analogy to condiments.

  • Ya Kun Kaya Spread
What could be better than a kaya spread when you are in Singapore? The one at Ya Kun is a tourist’s favourite. Those who have a penchant for all things eggy, this is the one for you!The coconut-milk-based spread gives off a whiff of Pandan aroma, and when smeared across freshly-toasted bread, it is deliciously appetising as you savour the sweetness, smoothness and richness altogether!yakun-cr-herworldplusPhoto Credit: HerWorldPlus

  • Shermay's Singapore Fine Food Cilicuka
Based on a hand-written recipe passed down by the grandmother of Shermay Lee – renowned food consultant and cookbook author specialising in Singapore heritage and Peranakan cuisine, the Cilicuka is a convenient ready-to-eat chilli and vinegar dip that is perfect for popiah, kueh pie tee, chicken rice and fritters. For that extra kick, it can even be substituted as a dip for your crispy keropok (Prawn Crackers). And best of all, it comes in three different heat levels to suit your spice tolerance.shermay-cr-stylexstylePhoto Credit: stylexstyle

  •  Irvin’s Salted Egg Sauce
I meant to introduce the finger-licking-good Salted Egg Chips and Salted Egg Salmon Skins from Irvin’s, but as you see, the post is all about condiments that you should bring home from Singapore so I will introduce to you its equivalent – Irvin’s Salted Egg Sauce. Trust me, the sauce is as tummy-worthy as the potato chips and salmon skin, so don’t be biased! In fact, the creamy and a little salty salted egg sauce is so versatile that you can DIY a variety of dishes with the ready-made sauce, such as salted egg crab, salted egg tofu, salted egg prawn, and for the baking enthusiasts, the flavourful sauce can be used as a filling for your baked goods like salted egg lava cake.

  • Poppy & Co. Speculoos Cookie Butter
Think peanut butter or Nutella, Speculoos Cookie Butter is similar…Inspired by the ever-popular Belgian delight, Speculoos, which is a type of caramelised shortcrust biscuit that contains ingredients like cinnamon and nutmeg, this decadent jar of creamy spread has been enjoying immense popularity in Singapore!Local brand Poppy & Co.’s very own rendition of the spread is made less sweet and with less spice suiting the local palette. It is perfect with pancakes, waffles, macarons, baked goods, ice cream, or even on its own. I’m sold!Ps.  The spread is a great alternative for those with nut allergies.speculoos-cookie-butter-her-worldPhoto Credit: HerWorld
