I chanced upon an interesting and pretty accurate write up about Singapore’s hawker centres in The New York Times. A food court is simply an air-conditioned hawker centre. A hawker centre is very close to a Singaporean’s heart and many are opened for 24-hours. If you’re a frequent reader of my blog, you would already know by now that we Singaporeans “live to eat” (more so than “eat to live”). To some degree, that applies to me.
I’ve been eating a lot recently at the hawker centre next to Allson Hotel(the one with a 4-faced buddha alter). The white fried carrot cake is pretty decent. The prawn noodles and fish bee hoon (sliced fish/fried fish/fish head) is really delicious. My friend Calin Chua recommends it here too.
This makes doing projects in school till after midnight that much easier to bear.
