Food Porn Singapore & Singapore Celebrities

Squid Ink Pasta

Gosh, I wrote this Singapore post based on sketchy memory and some random pics I took with my phone. Tater invited me to dinner at Platypus Kitchen, Bugis Junction as he had a hankering for pasta that evening. I had the squid ink pasta that night and for dessert, a slice of cake topped with pop rocks! As much fun as eating dick! And our waiter (Platypus Pete) was such a cutie with a turn cap! Those adorable single eyelids! And those arms! Argh. Definitely a better dessert than the cake.

On my way back to the hotel, I was hot on the heels of a twink (Running Ron) who had just finished his evening run from the looks of things. Tried to get a good shot of him, but he was too fast and it was too dark. Here's a Blair Witch Project Spycam edition!



Other food escapades were found at Amoy Food Centre, e.g. fluffy curry puff, proper non-Singapore style wantan noodles and Teochew kueh! Too bad Teochew kueh's glutinous rice filling was way too peppery. And of course boys in tight office wear that SimonLover loves so much.

Then there was Rakuichi at Far East Shopping Centre. Amazing that such an old building still exists on Orchard Road. The interior has a very retro feel to it. Tried some sashimi, kushiyaki and rolled sushi. My brother's treat. Hehe. Would have gone for some sake too if not for my sore throat.

On Saturday morning, I explored the streets around Masjid Sultan (I should go in one of these days). Lots of old buildings and I even tagged along a group that were on a heritage walk. They were too slow and it got too hot, so we parted ways. So much charm left in the Kampung Glam area. Hope it would be preserved and continue to be hipster.

On my way back from Sunday mass, I stopped by a food centre to get a pack of soya sauce chicken rice and a Koi Oolong Macchiato (cutter, not straw please). Weird that the seller used Cantonese with the customer in front of me, but ignore me when I used the same. Anyway, enjoyed my meal back in the hotel, savouring each bite, each sip.

Then there was Five Bistro with MoonlightPiggy at Maxwell Chambers. A rare choice of Vietnamese for lunch. Broken rice with a pork chop. The place was quite deserted, but thankfully the food wasn't horrible. As usual, she did the bitching and I gave her my thoughts. LOL.

Phew! That was a lot of meals. I'm done. :D.

I love everything in Singapore from its food to shopping havens. Oh well, the young generations there are better toned and better dressed. Our food here makes everyone fat.
