Singapore Trip 29/12/2010-1/1/2011 – Part 7

January 22nd, 2011 · 2 Surrendered

The final post of day 2… After Sentosa, we went back to Vivo City to have some food before heading back to Bugis. Had early dinner at Food Republic.

Tutu Kueh, SGD2 for 4 pieces. First time had it, I thought the outer layer texture was some sort like pao but it’s more like huat kueh texture but drier. Bought 2 with peanuts filling and 2 with coconut filling. This stall is the one similar to Chinatown Tan’s Tutu Coconut Cake.

Left: Rojak, it tasted different from Kuching’s. The taste of a spice was pretty strong. I don’t remember how much was this.

Right: The black one was braised intestine and the other one was bak kut teh. At least that’s what my dad said he had ordered. Hmm… Was suprised that their bak kut teh was different from ours. The soup was peppery unlike what we have in Malaysia which consist of herbs.

Left: For supper, after shopping around Bugis, we went to a noodle shop, QQ Noodle House, somewhere in Bugis, no idea of the exact location, we simply walking around and saw it. On the wall, “Sarawak, known as Bumi Kenyalang (Land of the Hornbills)”. We laughed ourselves silly. Sarawakian came all the way to Singapore to eat Sarawak food?!?!?

We just settled our supper here, lazy to hunt for other place and it was 10pm already, was tired and many places were closing.

Left: At first we thought must be kolomee but after we saw the poster and newspapers article, they’re serving kampua!

Right: We ordered Fried Tang Hun (SGD5.50). Tasted like there’s a lot of MSG used.

Left: QQ Specialty (SGD5), the kampua. Wasn’t that bad.

Right: After eating, we went back to the hotel for another round of supper. Guess what we bought earlier at Bugis? Durian! Went all the way to Singapore for the durian LOL! Bought this one box for SGD10(I think… Or is it SGD20? Don’t remember), it’s the famous Mountain Cat Durian if not mistaken. I was against it at first because you know how heaty durian is and the smell can be unbearable! Oh well… Dad still bought it anyway and we smuggled it into the hotel room. Good thing, no smell at all unlike the Durian from Sarawak.

Thick flesh, tiny seeds. Not bad. Taste wise, it’s not that overwhelming compared to what we had back home. The smell didn’t last, could easily wash off and the room didn’t smell also. Even when I burped, no durian after taste. If you have durian from Sarawak, it’s another story, the smell could last for very long and the whole place would smell of durian! Could even smell it from far away no matter how you try to conceal the smell. So it’s a good thing it didn’t smell ;p I couldn’t smell much of the smell at the stall too. Not very satisfying though. Better go back home to eat own durian but till now I don’t see any local durian in town. Hmm…

That’s the end of day 2.
