I have been, I think, pretty much everywhere on the planet except maybe the hot spots (Afghanistan/etc). I don’t want my ass shot off for no reason or taken hostage or what not. So, not yet
Other than that I think I have been pretty much everywhere else and I had a thought – where was the best street food in all my travels. Ahh, that was a hard one because I could not pick between fast food in Chicago and seafood on the streets of Singapore. Singapore won in the end. Just look at those pics.. too bad they don’t convey the taste or even the smell (sniff and scratch cards not attached).
So, you can get absolutely best spicy shrimp soup directly on the streets, in a small diners and, I think, those taste the best! And the spices!!! I have to say, I love spicy food so it was a real paradise for me there.
If you decide to go inside restaurant, you can have really luxurious meal of grilled seafood delicacies mixed with spicy vegetables and I bet you will experience such a spice mix and taste that you won’t forget it ever. It’s almost like famous Chicago pizza’s (yes, that’s where you get the best pizza, not in Italy!).
And, what was really cool – if you go off the main tourist streets, you can find small places where local people eat – that’s where you get the best Singapore street food – few blocks off the main tourist traps Small food marts will fill the street with fabulous spice smells and various grilled delicacies being prepared. Just love it!
I was staying in Sleepy Sams bed and breakfast when I was in Singapore – yes, it’s a budget place (just about 60$ per room) but it was clean and nice. I got to take photos of maids because at Sam’s they have excellent part time maid service and cleaners from Part Time Cleaner Singapore will pick up your laundry and return next morning clean and pressed and all smelling nice :-). Ahh, those were the days and that was probably one of my most memorable trips to Asia.
Here are some pics I took from the staff that helped me while I was staying there:
Thank you all guys for a fantastic time and for the friendly attitude to a complete stranger and how you took care of each and every my problem while I was staying in Singapore. Hope to visit and see you soon again!
