singapore food trip!!!!
i loooove singapore. i would have to say its my favorite south east asian destination! something about the vibe of the city that makes me comfortable and at ease. as in i wouldn't mind being based there for a few months for work or for school! actually, that's my secret dream!!!! (na hindi na secret ngayon. :p haha!)
this is an ultra long overdue post! but better late than never. june of last year, vince had to go to singapore for a football function, and i followed for a few days to get a short break lang. no touristy itinerary for this trip. it was purely a food trip!!!! ang saya. :))))
allow me to share with you a few highly recommended places to eat, should you go to singapore soon:
1. lao beijing!
where: novena square mall
what to order: the duck!!!!
notes: pace yourself cause the duck meat and fat and skin can get so overwhelming! have a cup of hot tea beside you to maximize the eating! haha. :p
2. no signboard seafood!
what to order: cereal prawns, chili crab, fried bread, garlic vegetables!
notes: inspiring how this place started out as a stall with no sign, became bigger and bigger until it is now a posh resto with exactly that name, "no signboard"! get ready for your fingers to smell and taste like crab for hours after! sooo good.
3. tian tian hainanese chicken rice!
where: maxwell road food centre
what to order: chicken rice with extra chicken!
notes: we heard about this from anthony bourdain in discovery travel and living and just haaad to go! wow the chicken is sooo good it melts in your mouth! warning though, the line is like half an hour long on average!
4. food republic!
where: wisma atria food court
what to order: makan sutra chicken wings and shrimp pasta!
notes: one of my favorite food courts along orchard road! there is sooo much food to choose from in this area but these two items are at the top of our list! you can eat a dozen or more makan sutra chicken wings if you're not watching yourself, haha! they're also available at the esplanade area.
5. marutama ramen!
where: the central at clarke quay
what to order: basic ramen with extra char siew!
notes: the menu is very basic, as in its just regular ramen and spicy ramen.. but its a simple menu because it too good already that you won't wanna order anything else! pile on the add ons like veggies, egg, char siew! check out vince gulping down that bowl! haha!
6. 7-11! :p
where: clarke quay
what to order: whatever snack or drink you're craving at the moment.
notes: for our last night there, we decided to do something extremely lovey dovey and day-off-y.. bought a couple of drinks and snacks and walked around clarke quay and ended up sitting by the steps on the river talking and laughing for hours and hours. :)))) (minsan lang ako cheesy so please pagbigyan ninyo ako! :p)
can't wait to see you again, singapore!
oh, and of course! i mustn't forget. i leave you with the new additions to my tumbling shot collection!
