My flight arrived in Singapore half an hour earlier than scheduled. I took a taxi to my Aunty’s place and since everyone was still fast asleep, I walked down the street to the local 24 hour food hawkers to get some breakfast.
What a great start to the trip!
When everyone was awake and the shops were open, we went across the street to the Lot 1 Shopping Mall and I got some brunch.
We went to our cousin's place for champers and pistachios. Christina polished off most of the bottle.
For a late lunch, we went to Jones, the Grocer - 9 Demspey Road. I think it's the same company that runs Simon Jones in Subiaco back home in Perth. The place feels like a large, spacious warehouse with benches towards the centre for dining and shelves arranged around the sides offering expensive gourmet treats. I spied a cheese coldroom in one corner and had to go in!
We were allowed to try all sorts of cheeses before we settled on a few different types for our cheese platter.
and Smoked Northumberland Gouda with Salami and Fig & Walnut slice.
Ooh...the cheeses were delicious!!
The combination of the smoked salmon and the avocado were awesome!
This was a let down dish. They saturated the meat with much too much lime juice.
We were all a bit amazed that these wedges came out to about $1 a piece.
wrapped in foil resembling fish. How...appetising...
In the evening, we went for dinner at Food Republic in Vivo City. I walked around for a bit before I decided to wait in the growing queue for the prawn noodles that were being cooked fresh in this giant wok.
Back at the table there were other dishes awaiting us to share.
And as if that wasn't enough food for the day, I enjoyed a glass of red with some cheese that I bought from Jones, the Grocer before bed.
