For a nation of foodies, it’s no surprise that supper is our favourite pastime. We love our mala hotpots, lok lok and Thai boat noodles. And most recently? Chinese BBQ skewers. In Singapore, these smoky sticks of meat are ramping up in popularity because of their delish spice flavours. We can’t resist cracking open a cold one, throwing our feet up, and enjoying a stack of tender meat skewers. Here’s where you can find them.
