The MRT series – Braddell (NS18)

We’ve read about quite a few good places to eat out here in the little corner that should be considered part of Toa Payoh… but since we are not a food blog we will leave it to the experts to share that with you… however it is interesting that the area this station serves is mainly residential… lots of older flats where regular heartlanders like us live.

You might note in later posts that often the best places to find good food are in the older housing estates or suburban towns of our little red dot. Such as this one, where quite many people come just for a food fix. Have you such neighbourhoods in your country?

  1. My experience is that neighborhood restaurants are often among the best, and not as expensive. Peggy and I are visiting my daughter Tasha, son-in-law Clay and grand kids in Charlotte, North Carolina this week. Clay always goes out of his way to find local restaurants and introduce them to us. This week, it was a Vietnamese dim sum restaurants. The waiters brought around carts of food for us to try, and, for the first time ever, I tried chicken feet. I can’t say I would go out of my way to eat them again, but I was glad to have the experience. Are they something that you and Mel eat, Suan? –Curt

        1. Well yes we prepare them at home too. Like many things it is an acquired practice more than taste. Because if one is blindfolded, one might not think its all that bad at all!


  2. I found that hawker center coffee is just as good as those high-end cafes, so I’ll not bother going to a starbucks in Singapore and giving 10 dollars where I can get my kopi for 2.
    That said, I haven’t tried more than ninety percent of the food that these food courts offer. What is your favourite food to eat at hawker centers?

    1. Oh that would be too many to post in a comment! Perhaps we can write a series about the hawker centers of Singapore… because we are a melange of peoples, there can be so many options for just breakfast – roti paratha, chee cheong fun, mee siam, porridge/congee, Chwee kueh, so many versions of noodles etc… and we’ve not come to lunch yet.

  3. I like this series – short, sweet and really what I’m looking for in terms of traveling. Finding the unique wherever you may be 🙂 like the song goes, “there’s no better place than where you’re at” (or something like that 😆
