Here’s a short food trip guide for those of you whose
first international destination for the year is Singapore.
In Chinatown, we had burritos at MuChachos. It’s heaven for people who love this particular Mexcican delight. We came in late, as the joint was about to close, but lots of people were still coming in hoping to get a taste of their favorite wrap. It goes to show how popular this place is.
We walked a few blocks down to have dessert at Esquina. This one looked like the party’s just about to start. We had to wait a while to be seated inside as even the tables outside were occupied already. Being seated by the bar is fun because you get a full view of the chefs all lined up and preparing the treats including our order of the churros.
The next day we were at Dempsey Hill and found a queue at the entrance of Jones the Grocer. This preferred brunch place of expats in the city offers freshly baked breads and a menu filled with a lot of filling items.
For those like us who love P.S. Café, the Demspey branch is the best by far with its outdoors setting. This one is perfect for families with kids who love to run around.
Finally for some weekend market, there’s PasarBella. It’s basically a first world version of the weekend markets in Manila. It is indoors and there is AC so one is comfortable the whole time, there’s no heat to annoy you as you take your time going around and eating a plate of paella with roast pork.
