IN SINGAPORE & NEED RESTAURANT RECOS!!
We're in Singapore...perhaps a few days longer than planned. Anyway, we need a restaurant...tonight! Just traveled here from Hong Kong, so we've had a recent fix of Chinese food. Any recommendations on really good, truly local, representative Singaporean restaurants? I'm worried about tourist traps.
Muthu's Fish Head Curry is uniquely Singaporean. Makes for a great dinner and a great story when you get home. When I went, it was mostly locals, except for me.
Most food in Singapore is greatly modified from its origins. Roti prata, chili crab, laksa, rojak, chicken rice, are all dishes that are derivative but also uniquely Singaporean.
Wander around Little India, or go to Croosroads in Grand Hyatt on Scotts. Both good. Or hang out in a hawker center or in Wisma Atria 4th floor (see the guy making roti prata).
