How to plan your own Singapore food tour – the before!

After the last couple weeks of trying to plan the Asia-travaganza, I have resolved nothing and in the end I have no plan aside from trying to eat myself to death in Singapore.

As a foodie destination, Singapore is among the world’s most famous venues. In fact, when I started researching things to do in Singapore, all I could really find was eating options. For a Trinidadian, this is almost the perfect lime, except that a river and some Carib isn’t involved.

As for some structure, I don’t really have much of a plan about Singapore aside from seeing the all the Hawker Stalls and trying as much amazing food, as I can! With the overall variety of food involved, I’m taking the lazy way through the entire process and basically using the recommendations from I Eat, I Shoot, I Post. I can’t even say how awesome this blog is – with making a ridiculously difficult process i.e. Eating the best of Singapore

Then another friend forwarded me this link from CNNGO … “40 Singapore Foods we can’t live without” … which was another lazy man link, since it gave me another list to attack while I’m there.

Then going from CNNGO, I found the top 10 list I was looking for … so of course being the “project manager” traveller … I put the thing into an excel spreadsheet (makes it easier to track for me)

Other local recommended dishes, each has evolved into local favourites and have devoted followings – of course, I don’t know if I will be trying the Frog porridge … but hey after a couple drams of scotch – I’m game for trying them.

Char Kway Teow
Hainan Chicken rice
Kway Chup (pig’s stomach/intestines/belly, tofu)
Thunder tea rice (rice, assorted chopped vegetables, green tea gravy)
Rojak (local fruit salad with pineapples/cucumbers/turnips/bean sprouts/peanuts)
Frog porridge
Fried Prawn noodles, Hokkien style

So you’re lazy and want all the links to the food posts, I’ve described … I’ve done all the hard work for you.
