No trip abroad is ever complete without good food. Very often the convenience of the digital compact camera does great injustice to the local mouth watering delicacies I was recently introduced to in Singapore by friend and personal guide David Ho. These food images were shot with the 20D/50mm 1.8 @ ISO 800/1600 ambient lighting.
One of our stops was VivoCity’s Food Republic food court where we had roasted duck and roasted layer pork. This is perhaps the second most popular choice after Hainanese chicken rice among Asians—I could have this ever other day, alternating it with chicken rice but that would mean denying myself everything else equally good.
Dinner with my wife @ the Imperial Treasure Nan Bei Restaurant, Ngee Ann City, Orchard Road. The roasted nuts with sesame is a nice touch, a nice change from the usual salted nuts variety yet appetizing.
^ Imperial Treasure stir-fried pig ears. Gristly and crunchy!

The next day, David and I found ourselves back @ Food Republic except this time it’s Wisma Atria branch. Here I’m introduced to what is easily the BEST beef noodles since my visit to Vietnam back in August. I thought the authentic Vietnamese Pho Bo noodles were incredible and probably cannot be beaten until I tasted the Singapore version … blown away!
Towards the evening, another friend Colin Quek joined us for dinner at outdoor Glutton’s Bay, Esplanade.
^ MakanSutra’s delicious BBQ Chicken Wings
^ Oyster Omelette and Iced Sugar Cane with twist of lemon
After dinner, the night was still young, we walked over to the Merlion (across the road from the Fullerton Hotel) nearby for some pictures and join the great number of tourists that had gathered there before us. Finished the night off @ STARBUCKS, a stone’s throw from the Merlion.
