When in Singapore, I usually stay in Serangoon but this time around I'm staying in the East Coast. Not a great location for trains, so I'm figuring out all the bus routes but what an amazingly good location for food! One of Dodo's friends took me to the LC hawker on Tanjong Katong Rd and there I discovered my dinner soul mate: kung pao chicken from a stall called Cindy. It was spicy, artery-clogging love at first bite!
The LC hawker is a pretty typical one from my experience. Open to the street, fans working overtime to swirl the night heat, tables of guys watching English soccer on large flat screen tvs, beer girls offering 40 ouncers, families eating quietly. I love hawkers, they fit me perfectly. I want to eat whenever I want and have lots of choices. Such a nice change from the Frenchie rigidity of lunch between noon and 2pm and dinner starting at 8pm. Speaking of which, I'm working Frenchie hours while in Singapore - 3pm to midnight, so this was lunch, kinda-sorta, I guess. I haven't figured it out yet to be honest.
