The ethnic food stalls in Singapore's "Little India"
/ travel main page
My family went on an
Asian tour in 1989, and we visited Japan, Singapore, India, and
Thailand. Singapore was a very developed and clean nation.
After flying into Singapore's Changi Airport, we were taken to the
National University of Singapore's Guest House where my dad was asked
to give a guest lecture. We toured the island and saw the famous
lion statue and went to Little India also. Little India was
fairly dirty compared to the rest of the city. They had lots of
ethnic food stalls where one could take in the foods from the diverse
populations that make up Singapore including the Chinese, Indians, and
Malays. Fish head curry is also a big treat for people in
Singapore. We ended our trip in Singapore with dinner at a really
nice restaurant by the South China Sea where the bottom floor was an
aquarium filled with fresh fish and shellfish that one could
order. I remember we were served shark fin soup too, but I was
not as adventurous back then!
