Eating Singapore style

Aside from shopping, Singapore is also known for its hawkers.  These are food stalls selling cheap but delicious Singaporean dishes.  I was so excited to try out the food!  We went to a hawker station near the Esplanade and my friend who's based in Singapore did the ordering.  She made us try out the stingray and rose drink.  We also tried the Char Kway Teow. The food was a bit spicy but it was something that one can still tolerate.  I think you can request for no-spice when you order it.  I have an allergy for seafoods but that didn't stop me from trying out the dishes served in front of me (I bought my medicines anyway, haha).

If you happen to be in Singapore, you can also check out their chicken rice.  Chicken rice is also a known dish in Singapore.  But unfortunately, I wasn't able to taste it.  I wanted to see if the chicken rice in Wee Nam Kee Singapore tastes just the same as that of their branch here in Manila.  You can also try out the tofu fries in I love Tamei.  I've heard it tastes good too.  Do share your stories with me when you get to taste it. :-)
