Singaporean Food in LA Anyone?

Last post we saw on Singaporean in LA was back in 2003 and we are hoping someone has invested in this bold flavored cuisine....anyone have any ideas where we can satisfy this craving? We can't get the thought of it out of our minds since trying it years ago in NY and recently watching a TV show about it....someone help we are going off the deep end of a culinary cliff!

    1. Singapore Express in Marina del Rey, and Thai Fresh in Westwood both have Singaporean specialties such as Nasi Goreng and Hainan Chicken on the menu. I love the food from each -- fresh, tasty and reasonable.

            Have you tried the version of kaya toast at Street? I need to get over there and give it a whirl one of these days.

              We've purchased kaya - very good kaya - from Yazmin in Alhambra, but they didn't offer kaya toast at the time.

          2. The Banana Leaf in the old farmer's market on 3rd. It's a super casual little place. I thought it was very tasty and the people working there are really helpful and nice.

            1. Thank you all for your insight....we want to try them all but given our delectable experiences with Asian cuisine in Monterey Park we will probably start with Litz!

                Not sure if this will work, but here is a link to a menu (menu is a few years old, so prices likely different)

                I don't see kaya toast listed, but Litz is more a restaurant than a street food/snack place.
