Singapore Noodles

For the three people who read this blog…huzzah!

Rejoice for I have moved to Hollywood and there are many interesting and inexpensive restaurants around. 

It’s close to kway teow, with plenty of bak kwah pork tossed with shrimp and scallions and mung bean sprouts. The shrimp was cooked perfectly. It was one of the best Asian dishes I’ve had in California.
It was very good.

I added all of that chili oil which wasn’t that fiery.

Now I know that los palillos means chopsticks (筷子). 

I started off with a huge seaweed salad. 

I recommend Noodle World.
It’s only two (!!!) blocks from my new apartment!


Stuck in Singapore 

Not a restaurant, but shameless advertisement of a novel I’ve written. 

I think it’s pretty good. The Kindle version is only $3.

It is a novel, but there are plenty of descriptions of Asian food. It’s less Eat, Pray, Love and more Bourne with bumbling people. 

In-Flight Meal Singapore to Tokyo (Japan Airlines)

I had high hopes flying JAL that the food would be good.

Miso soup was served! Also served was a decent salad, vegetables (eggplant and bell peppers), udon noodles and watermelon slices.

The fried chicken was soggy, but palatable. 

The wine was pretty good! 

Claypot Pork 

My second to last night in Singapore I had this dish.

Pork, chilies and scallions were cooked in a savory soy-based sauce in a claypot and served with white rice. It was okay. There really wasn’t that much to eat and there were a lot of scallions. I had this at the coffeeshop at the corner of Lorong 29 and Geylang Avenue.

Mixed Rice Dinner

My last few days in Singapore I decided to eat closer to home. There are many such restaurants in Geylang which serve a variety of Chinese dishes and most of the time they are pretty cheap.

This plate had a kelp salad served cold, Sichuan green beans, pork and chicken. My eyes were bigger than my mouth and I couldn’t eat it all. 

Another night I had this plate of tomatoes cooked with eggs, water spinach and chewy tofu. 

The last time I visited this establishment on Lorong 25 in Geylang I had pork and cabbage, water spinach with garlic and a sprout mixture. These cheap, delicious and cheap dinners is what I’ll miss most about Singapore. 

My last night in Singapore I had this simple meal.
It was actually at the food court next door.
