Of Coffee, Kueh And Toolang: We Went On A Self-Drive Foodie Expedition In Singapore With Car-Sharing Service Smove

We mapped out a delicious drive route you can go on a whim

When Singaporeans bring their foreign friends around Singapore, these visitors will most likely conclude the day with wide smiles and stomaches bursting at the seams. We daresay just by our multifaceted culinary scene is enough to reveal much to know about Singapore.

And regardless of whether there is an overseas acquaintance to impress, we certainly have no qualms about embarking on our own culinary excursions with other passionate foodies. After all, Singapore is a tight-knitted nation, where traipsing across one hawker centre to a Michelin-starred restaurant is only but a hop, skip, drive away.

While Singapore's public transportation system is efficient, commencing a food trail in your own vehicle will make the journey a lot smoother. And fret not if you are not blessed with your own shiny four-wheel steed (COE prices, we're looking at you), there's always the option of getting a rental from car sharing service Smove.

The car sharing company is great for one-off trips with its pay-by-the-hour format. So in case of a last-minute extension to your foodie adventure, you can always opt to top up one more hour to the rental if no one made a prior booking. Smove also boasts more than 100 pick-up/drop-off locations in Singapore. This means you can pick up your rental at say, in Bedok before dropping off the car at Serangoon at the end of the drive.

We tested out Smove's car-sharing service by getting into one of the rentals before speeding off on a culinary expedition!

5. Mas-Ayu for supper 

Hunger creeps in at the least expected moment. Thankfully, Singapore has a formidable supper culture to quell late night munchies. As we cruised through the relatively empty expressways at 1am, someone’s tummy rumbled which indicates more feasting again. From the North-East location where The Summerhouse lies, our Smove rental takes us back to Upper East Coast Road to sort out cravings for Mee Goreng and Nasi Goreng. Smove operates 24/7, meaning there’ll always be a vehicle up for rent at any time of the day! Even for curbing supper cravings at 3am, which we satisfied at Halal Malaysian restaurant Mas-Ayu.

The place susses out yummy Nasi Goreng Pattaya and a soul-soothing Tom Yum soup. With the last grain consumed and the soup slurped till bone-dry, we can finally say that our culinary adventure has come to a conclusion. It was indeed one heck of a ride!
