The Freshest Ingredient Sources The Best Chicken

Farmed in Malaysia using Japanese techniques, Sakura is antibiotic and growth hormone-free chicken. It's also juicy, tender, silky and very tasty.
Where: NTUC Fairprice. $10 for the whole chicken.

Nuts and Spices

Teck Sang is the place to go to buy nuts and seeds for a good selection at a good price. All spices are kept refrigerated, a bonus in this weather.
Where: Teck Sang No. 11 Hong Kong Street p.6533 1133

From the Farm

There are organic farms here in Singapore such as Greencircle, a biodynamic organic vegetable farm that delivers freshly harvested fruit and veg directly to your home. They have great basil and the best papaya. There is also incredibly tasty fruit and veg grown by Cynthia Hoefer organically in Nepal and flown to Singapore every 2 weeks.
