Hey hey guys!
A friend of mine and I are making a trip to Singapore in October for about 10 days, and our only agenda is food. Sadly, we aren't really that well off (and the rupee crumbling isn't helping our cause) but we have enthusiasm and energy and no dietary restrictions. We refuse to eat Indian food in Singapore unless its something absolutely outstanding.
Right now, we have a few must eats on our list:
1. Hainanese Chicken Rice
4. Crab Bee Hoon
5. Char Kway Teow
6. Yong tau foo
7. Peking Duck
I've heard that there's a Din Tai Fung and Tim Ho Wan in Singapore and since I visited DTF in Taipei and HK (and Bangkok, damn I love dem XLBs) and Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong and I loved them. But if I can do better in Singapore, do let me know.
From cuisines - Cantonese, Teochew, Sichuan, Malay, Perankan - I don't know, we'd like all, but the budgetary constraints hurt a lot. :(
I'd also like to give the Korean BBQ Buffets a shot (though in Chennai thanks to Hyundai and Samsung we get pretty authentic Korean stuff) and the Brazilian Meat Spreads and maybe even the best burgers and pizza in Singapore.
We are starting with a basic daily allowance of 50 Singapore dollars a day for food, though we have been advised that one really great blowout meal is totally worth it. I don't think we can do more than 150 singapore dollars for that meal, unless it's really, really, really, worth it.
I know it's boring advising people on budgets, but please help! :D
