My favorite meals in Singapore have been in the crowded, noisy hawker centers and on the street.

Today, for example, we got stuck in a downpour near the Bugis subway stop and decided to grab a light lunch at an outdoor stall. This tiny stall was nothing fancy - plastic bowls and spoons, but quick service and good, cheap food. The two women working there were quite efficient as a crowd had settled in nearby to take respite from the rain.

I ordered a bowlfull of wonton noodles, pictured, which was served in a sweet-soy sauce and with 3 fried wontons. Jason ordered a huge bowl of wonton soup with a dozen delicate wontons floating in the broth. Total cost: 6 SNG or about $4.75.

This meal was enough to tide us over until we got to Chinatown proper where we spent the rest of our afternoon. Nothing wrong with eating all day, having a few drinks and picking out a ton of Christmas gifts for our families!

Afiyet olsun!

I love Turkey as my husband Dogan is originally from Izmir and lots of relatives from Istanbul, the city I love.
