The sounds, smells and atmosphere at one of Singapore’s best night food markets is unbeatable. As soon you enter you will be approached by various food hawkers proffering their wares. The selection is second to none and since it was recently renovated it has become a little more upmarket – I miss the old more gritty feel – it seemed more authentic. Nonetheless, a definite – die, die, must try – there is something for everyone.

Make sure you get the stretch tea, but ask the purveyor before you take pictures – common courtesy.

We had a group of about 10, so no, I am not a glutton – 😉 Go with a large group and try as much as you can! Afterwards some nice cool juicy fruit or an ice kachang do not go astray.

Naturally, we were served by the ubiquitous Tiger Beer ladies and also enjoyed the cold fresh lime juice.

Cocktails at the Raffles hotel in Singapore – life could be worse – but I do miss their coctail range from 4 years ago – dry ice added a nice bit of theater to a relaxing afternoon of indulgence.

These pics were taken on a recent family/friends trip to Singapore. Love that city and love the Raffles hotel.The cocktail list from 4 years ago was better though. If you have the time visit the Long Bar, where, according to legend the last tiger in Singapore was shot and the Writer’s Bar, where they have a sublime selection of scotches.

Lunch in Singapore at Ku De Ta on top of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel on a recent trip with friends and family.

The images immediately below this text are of the most expensive beef – kobe – you can buy. I will not tell you how much it was – only that it was worth it. Texture, marbling and flavour were exquisite.

Food, Glorious Food – Bazaar Beer Cafe – Bohemian food in a little Hungarian place in St Leonards. Good eats with some good friends.

The food was rich and delicious. Not health food by any stretch of the imagination. Enjoy the food, enjoy the beer, do not count calories.
