Pack lightly.. all you need are your taste-buds!

Today I thought I would post my culinary travels in Singapore thus far… in cases where I remembered to take photos… Hope it’s not too painful on your eyes… and stomachs..

This was my first meal in Singapore.. It was ok.. nothing to talk about just yet… I think I was just settling in and overwhelmed by it all…

Ki had this soup.. it was good.. but we wanted more spice! More heat!

Thus far, this guy is my favorite! I have had food from him only twice.. but both times I was blown away..

The beer of Singapore it seems..

I had this for breakfast… Milo (which I am very familiar with.. I grew up on it), lightly toasted bread with something akin to a jelly in it, and soft boiled eggs… I tried the soft boiled on my friend’s encouragement…

Soft boiled eggs after adding soy sauce to it.. this was not my cup of tea… My palate could not wrap around the texture… and the taste wasn’t much either.. it needed seasoning or crunch or something.. I could not finish it!

Ki had laksa.. this was good! I would not have it for a breakfast meal due to its spiciness, but it was really good! There were some little things that looked like beansprouts, but had the texture of slightly boiled dumplings.. it was really, really good!

Bakery with so many delights!!

Get in my belly!!!

Dinner at home.. On this night I tossed some green leafy vegetable (like pak choi) with garlic, had left overs from lunch, bread, and ramen…

This was a good meal…

Fish was fried in a batter, and there was a chilli sauce accompanying it… It was warm, light and tasty…

Fried chicken.. it was ok.. it was a bit cold… so not enticing to my palate…

Mmmmm.. this ramen was a boss!!! It was very delicious and it looked good too..

At this point I was sleepy and wanted my bed…

Black pepper fish, with veggies and rice… this was good too.. the fish especially was very tasty with a light crisp on the outside!

I can’t remember what this was too clearly, but it was chicken.. and there was tofu with the veggies…

Fish Delights – FAILED! This dish was not for my liking, neither was it for Ki… I think maybe with time we can get used to it… but for now.. it was a failure for us… Currently Ki is 2/14 when it comes to failures… I am  0/7… haven’t had a failure as yet.. and I hope it stays this way…

LOL!!! Ki eventually discarded his meal and got another dish…

I had black pepper beef.. It was good… It wasn’t enough, and if you know me.. if I say something was not enough.. IT REALLY WAS NOT ENOUGH..

Best Thai Green Curry I have ever had!!!

This was the best green curry I have ever had, hands down! This was so good I can still remember my experience as I ate it.. OMG! The curry was rich, flavored, aromatic, all the adjectives to describe an awesome meal… This chef is currently my favorite  thus far… I am going to try almost everything he has!

Mango Salad… This is the second mango salad I have had here.. This time I took it without the peanuts.. It reminds me of Chow (a Trinbagonian favorite). It is essentially a mango chow, but presented as a salad.. which means sans the soul of a chow which is the sauce.. But it is really well done.. This salad had carrots in it too, but the previous one I had was 100% mango… mango, salt, cilantro, onions, hot pepper, and maybe a bit of lime.. just a little… Heaven!

I like spicy food… so peppers are always at my side.. I had a scrumptious meal this night.. My stomach was definitely full after this meal!

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, food, travel, Singapore, Tiong Bahru, culinary, thai food

Ki had this which contained noodles, and seafood… it was also very tasty.. cheap too!

I had this meal from ‘Pots and Pans’ I think was the name of the stall… You get your food simmering on this hot plate… I had black pepper pork and rice… It was good… but again my stomach felt it was not enough..

architect, artist, design & computation, document a day, illustrator, MIT, photo journal, photography,   thinking insomniac, vernelle noel, food, travel, Singapore, Tiong Bahru, culinary, thai food

This will burn you to smitherines!

Ki went back to the place with the failed meal above to try this… numerous people were leaving that stall with this meal.. so he tried it..

You get your meats (fish, shrimp, and more), veggies (lettuce, pak choi stuff) vermicelli all raw. Along with it comes a boiling pot of soup to cook them in…

It seemed like first degree burns were on the menu for us tonight .. :-)

This was a success.. the soup still needed a little work.. but great experience!

After walking around in the hot sun I had this.. Sprite never tasted this good!
