Singapore: Chilli crabs and more yum

soup restaurant singapore

Did something a little different and went to the West side to have chilli crabs at Bukit Batok instead of East Coast. Wasn’t too bad at all. I wished the mantous were bigger though. Everything else was delicious and not surprises. I love eating in Singapore, with the humidity in my hair and every dish is exactly how I remember it.

One of my favourite restaurants—Soup restaurant on Seah Street (by Raffles Hotel) is still around after nearly a decade. I could never recreate the samsui ginger chicken, a recipe brought to Singapore by the Samsui women—women Chinese migrants of Cantonese and Hakka descent who came and worked in labourous construction jobs. They were sadly mostly spinsters in search of fortune and a better life.
