NOODLES FOR THE FISH BALL NOODLE SOUP..

As I have said earlier for me a vacation is not complete without a visit to the market, mall or an eating joint.
I was at Singapore on a conducted tour so we had only two days in a place, we were in an area called as ” little India ” in Singapore so I could see only Indian people around and the restaurants served Indian food and I ate Indian food too.
So I was missing out on my quest to find more about Singapore food culture.
We had a tour guide who was a Chinese, living in Singapore for a long time so, I could get some information from him.
Singapore is a place where there are four communities living in harmony and they are Malaysians, Indians, Euracians and Chinese.
These influence the food in Singapore, so the food found is a mix of all these cultures.
Hence Singapore is considered to be cosmopolitan place where all sit around and enjoy each other’s food.
I visited some stalls in the morning where there were preparations for a full meal, after lot of talking with the shop owners and some locals eating at the stalls I was surprised to see that people ate rice and chicken curry for breakfast and it’s the most popular dish here, it was eaten with fried fish and salad as an accomplishment.
Seafood seems to be the top on the list of the local people and chili crab; black pepper crabs are the favorites.
Fish ball noodle soup seems to be one more to top the list of the things locals ate. Although I would have loved to stay more and really see things being cooked and get to know about the food that people make in a Singaporean home, it was just not possible as we had to move in 2 days.
So here are some of the snaps that I could click in my short stay in Singapore.
