My chase for 30 of 40 in 4 days … do it yourself Singapore Food Tour … Part II

Continued from http://www.rishiray.com/2011/07/14/my-chase-for-30-of-40-in-4-days/

So in the chase for these foods, we ended up at Clark Quay for the start of the Singapore Food Festival.

However by reaching at 11pm, when the close was scheduled for midnightwe we’re greeted with the following closing of the stalls and basically seeing only the scraps of food that was left by the hordes that came through

So instead, we decided on going out for some drinks before reconvening the food chase, when we happened to pass by this bar called “Clinic”. (Warning … the rest of this post might be in poor taste … but I absolutely guarantee that we couldn’t come up with this concept ourselves)

Clinic is bar like nothing I’ve ever seen before … where you get to drink cocktails like the following …

And you get to drink Blood Transfusions (Some type of sweet shooter) … while drinking in a wheelchair … yeah seriously … a wheelchair!!!

It’s all really in horrifically poor taste but we couldn’t pass up the chance to play paraplegic party with a bunch of other people drinking.

After the rest of the night drinking away at Clark Quay … it was back to the food chase and really back to Newton Circus Hawker Stalls

After last night, I went back to the same guy for “Carrot Cake” but he was closing at 3am, so we decided to sample some Chicken Murtaba and Mee Goreng.

First on the list at # 31 and #32 would be Murtabak and Roti Prata. Why these are regarded as separate dishes on this list, I don’t know …however our Murtabak was tasty and excellent by any standard.

It was filled with chicken and tons of onions and shallots, while accompanied by a thin masala. This is truly the type of food that keeps alcoholics going .. starchy, fatty, oily and super yummy. (Three thumbs up from D* on this one!)

Decision : Great value at $5. The curry was a great complement to the Murtabak. No ghee was used, only vegetable oil … it enough for one or two people @$5 … although the ones for $8 can feed 3-4 people.

Next on the sampling was #29: Indian Mee Goreng

Again another masterstroke in simple, tasty and hot noodles. This was a clear winner on our tastebuds also … this was my preference since it was quite hot.

Decision : Great value at $5, super spicy and enough for one person and a great side dish. Watching these guys operate in the small little stall is awesome. Stall #26 is definitely worth a try …

Yet another good bonus link to read … on your chase too
