As we hang in the balance, awaiting a new normalcy, the freezer is our best friend, allowing us to whip up a meal instantaneously on days we decide to dine at home.
But hot dogs, nuggets, and ice cream are not the only food that freeze well.
Halia, the beautiful restaurant in lush Singapore Botanic Gardens, just dropped frozen versions of their popular dishes.
And we are already adding them to cart ’cause our freezer certainly needs to up its frozen food game.
The items we’re adding to cart
1. Frozen soup packs ($6.50 each)
Two kinds of soups are available: Tomato & Basil Soup and Roasted Pumpkin Soup. These come in a 300g pack each, which serves 2-3 pax.
2. Halia’s Singapore-style Spicy Chilli Crab Spaghettini ($18)
One of Halia’s signature items, the dish is made up of al dente pasta entices with chilli crab sauce, which has a nice balance of sweet and spicy, coupled with lots of succulent crab meat.
This is the one dish we order every single time we visit Halia, so we are curious to see how it fares at home.
3. Braised Wagyu “Nasi Lemak” ($17)
This must be the most expensive nasi lemak in Singapore. But that is because it is unlike any other.
The dish features a heady mix of masala wagyu beef, coconut rice, fried egg, ginger flower sambal, and spiced nut & vegetable pickle. No ikan bilis and peanuts though.
4. Toffee Pudding Slice with Butterscotch Sauce ($5.50)
Another one of our favourites at Halia is this sweet and sticky dessert. Dates, butterscotch sauce, and sea salt combine to form an ultra indulgent experience.
Add this to cart first, always.
