From what started as a method of preserving meat since time immemorial, the smoked salmon has become one of the world's favourite epicurean dishes, you'll be enticed to try! It's silky and smooth texture makes it chewy, and light hints of salt can be picked up, especially if your taste buds are taste-sensitive. Appearance wise, the smoked salmon has a distinct orange colour. In most cities and cultures, people prefer to have their meats cooked thoroughly so they can enjoy the strong wood-fire taste it exudes. 


In Singapore, smoked salmon is considered a high-end dish worthy of both the middle- and upper-income man's palate. Then again, anyone is free to savour this exquisite delicacy as long they are prepared to pay. But it's not just a dish fit for a king - - Singaporeans of all stripes are willing to spend their dollars and cents on their favourite comfort foods, including smoked salmon.
