After a year long hiatus from the blogosphere, the crook has re-entered the fold. My newest project: a Southeast Asian food trip as research for Vivian, a SE Asian noodle eatery that is slated to open in Manhattan in the coming year.
First stop for a snack was the food court at the Raffles City mall across the hotel. For 6.5 Sing dollars, I ordered a pear and apple pork ribs soup, which was slightly sweet, comforting and pretty satisfying. It came with yam rice that had chunks of pork char soy and dried shrimp, and a side of sautéed greens in sweet soy sauce and topped with fried garlic chips. A one tray meal for the proletariat. Serious steal lah.
