More food from Singapore

This is some of the food we had at my friend Lun Cheak's home. I wish I could have eaten more, but sadly I stuffed myself at lunch that day. Honestly, there is just so much good food in Singapore, it's almost impossible to eat it all! This becomes especially difficult to do when you are only in town for a short visit.

I think all of the foods here are Indonesian in origin, but they are very popular in Malaysia and Singapore as well. When I was in junior college (grades 11 and 12), my lunch usually consisted of rice, rendang, begedil and sambal goreng (green beans and tempeh fried in chili sambal). This is my comfort food, and I'm getting hungry just writing about it!

Sayur Lodeh (Coconut vegetable stew)

Begedil (Fried potato cakes)

Beef Rendang

I think I'm starting to appreciate how some of my readers have felt about the previous food postings!

I'm glad you are getting a taste of your own medicine, so to speak! It is a most peculiarly enjoyable torture to peruse your food pictures and read your descriptions...we all suffer together. I went to the Richmond night market last night and there were not as many varieties of stands as last time I went (no onion pancakes!!) but it still made me wish we had stalls on the streets here. It was my friends first time and I had the most fun seeing his reactions to the things available and I got him to order curried squid on a stick--which he bravely tackled!

No comparison to the delicious treats you ate though, mmmmm. Maybe hawkers delight tomorrow for dinner? :)

I have not found that place you recommended...yet. I will seek it out really soon.
