This is my last post on our wonderful trip to Singapore. It's mostly about the food items I forgot to stick elsewhere on the blog. I made it a point to try as many different foods that I could while on vacation. I think I did a good job (with the exception of the $30 hamburger).
|Bee cheng Hiang is famous for thier sticky type of beef jerky called bak kwa.|
It was very good & very fresh. It needed to be eaten the same day it was purchased.
|This is the bak kwa.|
It looks like fresh steak here, but it was dried (like jerky). It's covered in a sweet & sticky glaze.
|Mmmm. One of my favorites. A simple custard bun. |
I bought one & sometimes two of these every morning.☺
$0.55 from The Line restaurant in our hotel.
This was delicious!! Bbq'd pork & cabbage inside a soft Chinese bread.
Matty & I found this inside the Takashimaya hawker center. It was only $2.60.
The bread was soft & steamed (reminded me of a waffle).The merlion was filled with cream cheese & the doughnut shaped one was filled with sweet custard.We bought 4 of each for $5.00
It was so delicious that I bought a second ice cream sandwich (with mango ice cream).
I wish we had these here. So tasty & so much fun with the pandan bread.☺
|This is what my hair looks like when I don't flat iron it. :/|
Indian food from the Ion Orchard hawker center.
|Noodles, tofu, green onions, jalapeno & a hard boiled egg in peanut sauce.|
$6.00 for a bag of 12 mangosteen.
|Peeled mangosteen. |
It tasted like pear/strawberry/mandarin orange. Super yummy!
This was so good! A sweet & spicy soup with shrimp, noodles, calamansi & hard boiled egg.
|Chinese rice noodles with pork.|
|Egg & potato brioche from Bread Society.|
|More Bread Society goodies + kopi c from Toast Box.|
These are what Omid claims are the best chicken wings he's ever tasted.
Guess where they are from? IKEA!
|In Singapore, IKEA is pronounced 'eeee -kee- uh.'|
These next few photos are from the Tanglin Shopping Center grocery store.
This will give you some idea of just how pricey imported items can be in Singapore.
I've never seen this flavor of Boursin cheese before & I hope it makes it way to the US.
I paid $8.98 for this tiny package. I usually purchase a 3 pack of Boursin at Costco for the same price. Ouch.
|Giant Fuji apples. $9.00 for 2.|
|Omid modeling dragonfruit & mangosteen.☺|
|$2.90 for one can. Winco sells the same brand for 0.65.|
|$9.95!!!! Again, Winco sells this for less than $2.00.|
Betty Crocker can be found for around $0.89 here.
On a sidenote, this trip to Singapore was one of the best vacations I have ever had. It was simply amazing! Thank you Omidjoon for surprising me with this trip. Love you lots!!!♥
