Fun Food

Another installment in the Fun Food department!  The most famous Singaporean food (and our daughter's favorite) is Chicken is just what it sounds like, with chicken on top of a mound of rice, but whatever they do to it makes it extra special.  (I think they pour a ladle of chicken fat over the top...)

On Saturday, we spent a long time opening our bank account - the bank was located in a mall with lots of other banks and shopping venues where the locals live and shop.  And, of course, it had a  food court.  This one was especially nice and new, but I had to get a photo of one of the local specialties...there is always a line at this kind of food stall...go figure!
We actually stopped in at a McDonald's for coffee, milk shake and french fries.  Sometimes you just have to go with the old standby.

On Sunday we were in a high end shopping area on Orchard Road and saw this delectable sign...unfortunately we were in a hurry and they were just opening, so we didn't get to sample the cuisine, but you can bet I will be back soon to try it out:
And the reality of a country that doesn't like its citizens drinking too much, so they tax the heck out of time you buy a bottle of Barefoot wine for $4, think of me!!

  1. Are all of the signs in English? Love your blog and love you, dear friend.

    And I totally agree with you on McDonalds. When you are confronted with new sights, smells, and sounds, you naturally seek out a bit of home....Which is why Brian always laughs that I can find the only other Italian in a crowded room.
