Mdm Halimah Yacob Loves Mee Rebus, And This Is Where She Gets Her Favourite Bowl

If you’ve been following the news closely, Madam Halimah Yacob should be no stranger to you – especially with the Presidential Elections coming up.

A woman who will make Singapore history if elected president, Madam Halimah Yacob has quickly become a favourite for the position, given her long years in public service and the support she’s garnered over that time.

Because Halimah is human – and Singaporean – too, we had one very important question for her: What is her favourite food?

We sat down with Halimah and asked her what she loves to eat. As it turns out, even her tastebuds are humble too.

If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your life…

Like a true blue Singaporean foodie, Halimah had a hard time deciding between three of her favourite foods: mee rebus, laksa and nasi lemak.

Eventually, she decided on mee rebus – specifically, the one served at Teh Tahrik Makan Restaurant, tucked away in an obscure coffee shop in Marsiling; this is her go-to place for the dish.

Ownself ask, ownself answer 

A woman after our own hearts, Halimah gets excited when talking about her favourite foods.

Without missing a beat, Halimah continued, “Since you asked me what food I like, you must ask me what dessert I like ‘cos I’m thinking of food already. I like tau suan and goreng pisang.”

Proving that she’s just like every one of us, she admits that the foods she likes are delicious, but not necessarily the healthiest.

Buffets are a no-go

Halimah loves food a lot and she even finds it a problem! That said, buffets are not her thing because there are just way too many choices. She’s strictly a one-dish kind of person.

Just before she took her leave, Halimah managed to squeeze in one final story about how her love affair with tau suan (mung bean soup) began.

“Before I have to go, let me just tell you why I like tau suan. I used to stay at Selegie House when I was younger. Last time the uncle will come carrying two barrels – one full of tau suan the other one full of boiled sweet potato – to the void deck. I grew up with these kind of dishes, which is why I still love them today!”

If you’ve ever wondered what Madam Halimah Yacob likes to eat, now you know! Pop down to her favourite mee rebus haunt for a simple but hearty bowl of mee rebus! Who knows, you just might bump into her the next time you visit.
