Singapore has a perfect weather for growing bean sprouts. It’s hot and humid, day and night. My parents brought some seeds from Korea and indeed they grew like weeds, or as we say in Korean “they grow like bean sprouts!!”
My parents used to say if I eat lots of bean sprouts, I would grow tall. Always being one of the shortest at school, I really believed this was the cure. Boy, was I wrong… False hope!!
Bean sprouts are used a lot in Korean cooking and available in supermarkets all year around. But in Singapore you can’t really find a good supply. The ones at Fair price and Cold Storage look really tired and miserable. After a long search, I finally found a few stalls at Tekka market that sells fresh bean sprouts. The best solution though which I highly recommend to everyone is to try growing bean sprouts at home. All they need is a dark place and frequent watering and it only takes a few days!!
