Chinatown Hawker Stands – Singapore

Pork Fried Rice, Sinigang Na Baboy (Pork in Tamarind Soup), Fried Pork and the every present Tiger Beer

 Chinatown, Singapore  July 28, 2011

Thursday night I took the MRT into Chinatown and found a hawkers stand I have not been to yet. For those who do not know what a hawker stand is, “it’s the name given to open-air complexes housing many stalls that sell a variety of inexpensive food. They are typically found near public housing estates or transport hubs (such as bus interchanges or train stations).”

I always find it tough picking something to eat at hawker stands, its like going into that greek diner that has a 20 page menu and the range of choices causes confusion and indecision. Due to major hunger pangs and deep thirst it only took one of the vendors to ask me if I wanted a beer to sit down at her stand.

The picture at the top of the page is what I ate and I was stuffed at the end. The only thing I was not a fan of was the soup, was a bit on the sour side for my taste.

Tried a San Miguel from the Philippines, I thought it was really good and for a light beer and it didn’t taste like water and helped put out the hot chilli flame that was blazing in my mouth.

    Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!
