Food in Singapore

If you are in or near Singapore, here are some of my favorite food recommendations:

Milo (a hot chocolate drink) and kaya (coconut jam) toast

Nasi lemak (coconut rice and various sides like peanuts, a fried egg and chicken wing)

Carrot cake--fried eggs with daikon/radish (no carrots involved!)

Char Kuay Teow--fried flat rice noodles with bean sprouts, eggs, etc in a dark sweet soy sauce

Satay--skewers of grilled chicken and beef with cucumbers and rice patties to dip in the peanut sauce

Wanton mee--thin egg noodles with bbq pork and wanton dumpling soup

Beef pepper rice--cooked on a sizzling hot plate (BK's favorite)

Laksa--noodles and side dishes like bean sprouts, tofu and quails eggs in a rich curry-like broth

Cereal prawns--large prawns covered in a cereal batter

Famous chilli crab
 A traditional dessert: steamed rice cakes with coconut and orange sugar to dip them in

Muah chee--glutinous rice flour dumplings with crushed peanuts and sugar

Singapore curry puffs--these from 1A are my favorite with a flaky crust 
and delicious curry filling (with a quarter hard boiled egg inside)

and of course, not native to Singapore, but just as delicious--Garrett's popcorn!

Whew!  That was a lot of food pictures--wait till you guys see our Australia/New Zealand food pics! :)
