Today for lunch we went to the Straits Cafe to have a nice sampling of Singaporean cuisine.
The Straits Cafe has a nice buffet which is great for getting a little taste of many different foods.
Singaporean cuisine is a wonderful mix of Indian and Asian foods and is very diverse.
The Peranakan cuisine combines Chinese and Malaysian traditions and spices.
I have always enjoyed Laksa during my visits here. The rich coconut curry soup base has a rich taste and is a great complement to the different ingredients that are added. Rice noodles are standard but other ingredients vary.
Durian has a strong smell and a very distinct taste. Durian is banned in many hotels, airport and on public transit because of the strong smell.
People have different reactions to durian. Some love it and others absolutely hate it and can’t even force themselves to eat it.
I would definitely eat durian again, but it is not something that I would go too far out of my way for. Maybe I should say that it is tolerable.
Have you had durian before?
