Penang is where Singaporens go to eat, wow!! That works for me.
My first lunch in Singapore over 20 years ago, my client took me to an Indian restaurant. I was astounded that the first item advertised on the outdoor sign was FISH HEAD! Our plate was a big leaf, various dudes came by and plopped down ladles of rice, beans, etc… and then a big bowl of curry fish head. The next morning, another client took me to a local joint for pork rib tea. Not my preconceived notion of “tea”, I’ve been trying to replicate that flavor at home ever since.
Fortunately, there were still some hawker stands in the streets at that time, rather than being all confined in the food courts as now. I love Singapore, great food, great people, safe environment and more. I know my wife will love it.
Question: when we stay in Singapore, would it be worthwhile to do a day or short (couple of day) trip to KL on a bus or public transport?
Or, we may take the plunge and go direct to PEN. I’d shipped a few 1x20’ of Jim Beam to PEN many years ago. Always wanted to visit and see what the city was like.
