Singapore Sling

Chicken rice and steamed egg at Sin Swee Kee. Hainanese style steamed chicken, tons of flavor in the rice itself.

I pretty much love all things curry, so it's no surprise that I love the Malay influences in Singaporean cuisine. There isn't much available in the bay area, so I was super excited to eat my way around town and finally have the real thing! Time was limited so I wasn't able to try much actual Malay or Peranakan cuisine, but I definitely had some delicious local food!

Murtabak at Zam Zam, quite possibly one of the most delicious things I tried in Asia

Roti stuffed with meat and served with curry sauce. How can that ever be a bad thing?

Laksa at Maxwell (L) and at a food market around Clarke Quay (R). Did not get a chance to try the OG katong laksa unfortunately

Stingray, satay, and fried oyster pancake (better than the Taiwanese kind I thought) at Chomp Chomp

The ubiquitous sugar cane drink at Chomp Chomp; a kalamansi limeade from Mr. Prata (don't remember what it was called)
