During lunch time yesterday, B, our former intern, came to join us as it was also M's (another intern) last day. B is leaving for the UK in a month's time to pursue her university studies and I asked her one thing -- "What Singaporean dish will you miss when you're away?" She answered "Laksa" in a heartbeat and this got the rest of us thinking too. While I may not be born Singaporean, but having lived here for a couple of years; I know that if ever I leave this beautiful country, I will definitely be missing that delicious plate of Char Kway Teow over time.
So, while I can, I'm stuffing myself with all the delicious local dishes that I can have. Recently, Paul and I went back to Street 50 Restaurant and Bar and we were introduced to a couple of the additions to their menu. I have to admit that our first "egg-perience" at Street 50 wasn't very memorable as we were not too crazy about all those egg-loaded dishes but we are firm believers that some things deserve a 2nd chance and Street 50 is one of those.
At this point, Paul and I agreed that we made a good choice in giving Street 50 Restaurant and Bar a second chance. Can you just imagine the things that we will be missing out on if we chose to say no to this forever?
What a feast! I don't think we'll ever get tired of Singaporean dishes as each has multiple layers of taste profile and it somehow gives you a nice comforting feeling in every bite. We just kept on saying how delicious and good each dish was. Indeed, it was one of the best dinners we've had this year.
