Singapore : Sharing some food...

A lot of people say Malaysia has great food. That I agree, not because I am a Malaysian, but generally, we are great for... STREET food aka Hawker food.

But when it comes to variety of foods in a shopping mall, and what I mean by variety is not your usual fare, then Singapore win hands down. For in their shopping malls, one can find this:

The Soup Spoon 
 So what is it? Yummy choices of soup and we top it off with bread+sandwich+free drink.

Base prices start from about SGD10 with our set meal coming in around 15 (I think). Compared to Soup Express, this trumps it...

Now this was interesting. On the 1st day when we were in Plaza Singapura's Kopitiam Foodcourt, we visited the food court. It was only after sitting down and observing that I saw some people carrying this personal steamboat. Needless to say, I wanted it desperately, and 2 days later we were there ... at the same food court! :)

So what is it? Well, as stated, its a personal steamboat going for around SGD6; depending on your choice of soup and items that you want, whether its chicken or plain vegan or pork or seafood. I choose seafood, so that came up to SGD6.99.

The soup is already pre boiled. And they will cook all of it just before they hand the whole thing over to you. So what the flame is there for is just to keep it warm for you. Neat eh?
 What interest me more, was the flame. You see, there's no 'gas'. It uses a gel which the owner gives you. So once the gel burns off, that's it. Simple but effective.
 My MIL snap this on her PnS and bought this for us to try. Taroyaki Balls. Inside, it's filled with a variety of stuffing that you would choose.

And finally, the highlight food for us. Where? Botanic Gardens! Casa Verde.

Why you ask? My pork rack was SGD16. With bread. And Soup. Beat THAT Malaysia!!!
 Missus and MIL had a Beef Burger. Their verdict? 2 thumbs up for the beef.
While we would wish that the prices were lower, but after all that walking in the Botanic Gardens inclusive of the Orchid Garden, it's worth every dollar & cent spent!!!

The End.
