There are a few types of crackers used to garnish Gado Gado. Common types include prawn keropok, tapioca keropok or emping.

Gado Gado is very uncommon in Singapore, and very few stalls sell this. Even for those stalls that do sell this dish, many eventually drop it from their menu.

These are the top 3 stalls which I feel serve the best Gado Gado in Singapore.
