Seafood in S'pore versus JB & a few other questions

baltoellen | Jan 15, 2008 09:24 AM

I'm about to head to Singapore for my second time for three days. Yes, I know it's foodie heaven, but I must say that the last time I was there was during Chinese New Year's, and I only had a very short time in the City, since most of my time was spent with families in southern Malaysia.

Anyway, I'm a little familiar with the food (I've also spent a good deal of time in Malaysia), and not to get into a big fight about this, but I was wondering what people thought the best hawker center--stall for stall--is. Of course, I know I can get excellent food in the more "touristy" centers, but wanted to know what the great mind here thought.

Also, a friend of mine there mentioned that she would like to take me across the causeway to Johor Bahru for seafood. (I've been to JB before, and really don't feel the need to see the sights there), but am just wondering if anyone here thinks it may be worth the smallish hassle to get there for the seafood?

Finally, laksa! I'm staying not far from Bugis MRT. I will want this for breakfast. Is there any place rather close by that I should be on the lookout for?

Many, many thanks!
