XXL dishes in Singapore
There are many reasons to order a huge bowl of food; you might be really hungry, you’re with loads of friends, or you simply wanna experience what it’s like to be a Mukbang eater. No matter the reason, you can find a wealth of places to chow down on the likes of gigantic Thai boat noodles, jumbo chirashi bowls, and monstrous dessert platters. Here are 10 XXL dishes around Singapore for you and your friends to feast on.
1. Super Spicy Mala XXL Noodles (The Thai Society)
My go-to comfort food has always been a bowl of Thai boat noodles with an intense broth, drizzled with golden bits of pork fat. Imagine my delight when I found that Thai Society serves a Super Size ($19++) boat noodles, giving me more than what I could have bargained for. Feeding two to three humans, this huge bowl lets you choose between glass or rice noodles, and a soup base of red tom yum, herbal soup, or ma la.
Although the ingredients are well cooked, the spicy versions of the boat noodles can be a little intense. So make sure you’re able to take the heat if you opt for the tom yum or mala versions. You’ll also get two glasses of lemongrass drink when you order the Super Size to help quench your thirst.

2. XXL Thai Basil Chicken Rice and Omelette (Im Thai Kitchen)
Another XXL Thai dish on the list is Im Thai Kitchen extra-large serving of Thai Basil Chicken Rice ($15.90) that comes with a fluffy and palm-sized omelette. The dish has a nice wok hei taste, though the fragrance of basil doesn’t permeate the dish. A major standout is the fluffy, fried omelette blanketing the mountain of white rice. Fried in bubbling hot oil, this omelette is crispy on the outside, and holds layers of soft, eggy goodness.

Take a break from the usual birthday cakes, and celebrate with House of Mu’s monstrous Dessert Platter ($48++). Filling up the board is a wonderful assortment of cakes, macaroons, and ice-cream. Expect cubes of fudgy Oreo cake with hazelnut cream, passionfruit macarons, as well as bananas with caramelised tops.

4. XXL Bingsu (Oriental Ice Bistro)
You can’t call yourself a bingsu lover if you haven’t tried the Overdose Bingsu ($24.90) from Oriental Ice Bistro. A combination of three different bingsu—matcha, Oreo, and choco-banana—this huge bingsu will surely be a fun dessert to tackle with two or three friends. However, keep your IG pics to a minimum ‘cause the bingsu melts fast. Dig into this milky bowl of goodness, and you’ll find generous scoops of ice-cream, double chocolate brownies, sliced bananas, and matcha rice cakes.

The fries are free-flow too, making it even more bang for your buck!
