6 Singapore Fear Food to Challenge You

Updated: Aug 22, 2020

Before going into the details, note that I'm not going to make things easy for you. The title is called "Singapore fear food", so I will scare you with gruesome photos before you have the chance to try them.

1. Pig's Brain Soup

Perhaps, the most intimidating pig's organ that can be found in Singapore is the pig's brain herbal soup. The sight of the pig's brain nuggets can scare off many people. But those who have tried it will know that it does not taste as ghastly as it seems. It is almost bland, with a slight characteristic "brainy" taste, and has creamy texture, like eating soft beancurd (or tofu, 豆腐).

One of the main beliefs of eating pig's brain is to nourish the brain. Many parents used to prepare pig's brain in home-cooked dishes and camouflage them for their kids to eat so they can be smarter and excel in their studies. For most of you Singaporeans who are reading this post, you may want to check with your parents if they did that before.

Unfortunately, pig's brain soup is a soon-to-die-out delicacy in Singapore. Apart from its gruesome appearance, it is also extremely high in cholesterol, so most people are shunning it. Pig's brain soup used to be sold in quite a number of places but the number had dwindled to just one known stall today, that is Seng Kee Black Chicken Herbal Soup.
