Now that we’ve hopped over to Japan and are immersed in a world of foods both visually stunning and delicious, I think it’s time to take a look back at some of our Singaporean food and culinary delights over the past two weeks.
Being Singaporean, I am immensely proud of our local food culture. We love our food. A lot. And as a result, there is no shortage of amazing things to savor at every corner of the country. Ask a random Singaporean on the street, and chances are they could tell you where to get the best chicken rice, chwee kueh, nasi lemak and more. It’s crazy how seriously we take our food, but I wouldn’t ask for anything less.
As you’ve no doubt already seen, I fed Kareem endlessly while we were in Singapore. It was exciting and so delightful to watch for his first reactions to flavors, aromas and sights that were so familiar to me. From fish head curry at Muthu’s Curry in Little India to an Old Chang Kee curry puff to a fresh peanut pancake (made with kaya) from a coffee shop by the Block 58 wet market in Bedok South, I wanted him to try it all. And he did.
Here is a snapshot of our tour of Singapore, the foodie way. Ready? Get hungry:
