Hi Everyone! I’m back and finally have beaten my jetlag (those 7-10pm naps I’ve been taking the past few days haven’t been helping, I’m sure). I’m so excited to share some of the best food I’ve had in Singapore – unfortunately, my laptop is on its last legs, so my picture uploading is limited. When my new laptop arrives in a few days, I’ll be back full force – but for now, would you like to see some teasers? I thought so!
In addition to the Prawn Laksa pictured above, here are just a few things I sampled in Singapore:
Hainanese Chicken Rice. I not only went to the best restaurant chain for this dish – I went to the best location of the chain!
Roti Prata. Again, I travelled “far” to try the best prata (Singapore is so small geographically that nothing is that far from anything else), and it was definitely worth it. There were so many different varieties – I tried the honey and it was ginormous. I got some great action shots of the prata being made – stay tuned!
CHILI CRAB! I have friends that literally dream of chili crab. You can’t get this dish in NYC (well, there is a restaurant that sells it, but it doesn’t compare to the real thing). Made with mud crab, which can weigh in at 5 lbs each, this dish is uniquely Singapore. And it doesn’t stop at chili – there’s black pepper crab, white pepper crab, salted egg crab – and yes, I took pictures of them all. Stay tuned…
Which of the above would you like to try?
