Pretty strange burger

Pretty strange burger - not sure what was going on with this

I’ll start this post out by saying that almost everything we tasted in Singapore was excellent.  Singapore is not a particularly cheap place, but we were able to do pretty well by mostly eating at our local food court.  We stayed in Chinatown and there were plenty of tasty morsels to try!

We found that the best strategy was to go to the food court (kind of like a mix between a market and a food court you would find in a mall here), look around until we found a longish line and then get in that line and order whatever everyone else was eating.  Singapore has very strict regulations about food handling and cleanliness, so pretty much anywhere food is being sold it’s likely to be edible.

We had delicious noodles with pork.

So Good!!!!

The line pictured below was about 30 minutes long.  But it was absolutely worth it.  The stall pretty much sold only one thing.  “Chicken Rice,” which is just what it sounds like.  Perfectly cooked chicken over rice.  Many of these stalls only cook a certain amount each day, so if you don’t get there early enough they will have run out and you are out of luck.  We were one of the last three people to get dinner at this stall when we went, so very lucky indeed!

Always go where there's a line

Delicious!  And completely worth the wait!

Justin tried out the dim sum from a street vendor – another cheap option.

On one of our days we went over to Little India to get our fix of spicy food.  This was the closest we got to India on our trip and the food was excellent.  We each got a lunch special.  I had the chicken and Justin tried the crab.  It was VERY messy eating with our hands and Justin’s shirt will never been the same, but we had a great time.

There is a fruit in SE Asia called the durian, which we did not try, but is apparently so smelly that it is banned on the subway!!

No durians!

    Mmmmm, crab curry! Also, re: the giant Hershey’s bar- now that’s “fun size”.

    There’s no such thing as a “too big” chocolate bar!
