|raw fish porridge, a favorite of my dad's|
|char kway teow. a true hawker center classic. this dish has the reputation of being artery-clogging, but it's perfect for that occasional indulgence.|
|Singapore-style beef noodles. it's nothing like Vietnamese pho; it's better :)|
|glutinous rice with peanuts and anchovies. great breakfast.|
|Laksa. I love this. We even shared a recipe for it on our blog; you can find it here.|
|chwee kueh -- rice cakes topped with pickled radish and chili sauce. typically eaten for breakfast.|
|mee hoon kueh, also known as handmade noodles. served in a delicious anchovy-based broth.|
|crab. steamed and eaten cold. this is as simple as crab gets. yums.|
|lor mee. egg noodles smothered in a yummy sauce that's topped off with vinegar and minced raw garlic.|
And if you're wondering what to drink while you're chowing away at the hawker centers, I recommend teh-C, which is a local version of tea sweetened with sugar and jazzed up with evaporated milk. Delicious!
