Off to Singapore!

I’m just about to head out to the airport to fly out to Singapore for a week long food tour. The Singapore Tourism Board was gracious enough to invite me out to check out their booming food scene and I can honestly say I haven’t been this excited about a trip in months!

Head over to Wandering Cook to see all my posts from the trip.

Google hooked me up with a local cell phone so I’ll be posting all my updates on Google+, as it happens. Add No Recipes to your circle to get the play-by-play of my trip along with all the juicy photos of Bak Kut Teh, Chicken Rice, Laksa, Chili Crab, and so much more. In the mean time, here are a few pics from my trip last year to tide you over until I land:-)

    STB will bring you to the standard places, but best to get the inside scoop from someone here. Why don’t you call Russel Wong? Heard you guys met through Kyoto Foodie !

    you’re gonna have an awesome time in Singapore, lah! i’ve been living here the past four months, the city is simply amazing. the food is tops! you’ve probably looked around at some loacl food blogs already, but Lady Iron Chef (http://www.ladyironchef.com/) is arguably the most popular and influential here. make sure to check out tonnes of hawker stands, that’s where you’ll find true Singaporean cuisine!

    Have a wonderful and safe trip.  I look forward to the incredible photographs I know you will take.

    Hi, I just wanted to say that your food photos are just amazing. What type of camera are you using?
    After taking the picture, do you use photoshop for touch ups? 
    Thanks for a great blog!

    Sad to say Lady ironchef is far from influential and popular.  If you read HIS blog long enough, you’ll start to question his credibility as a foodie

    I agree – ieatishootipost is probably more popular/influential! Yay to Singapore (my hometown haha)

    You seem to enjoy seafood alot, have you had a chance to visit Puerto Rico, I know that not as exotic as some of the places you’ve been but the food is amazing
    Bamboo Burger in Bayamon — Lobster Soup
    La Casa de Pescador in Vega Baja — everything it’s a small privately owened placed that only the locals know about it kinda hidden on the beach and they’re family are fisher men so almost all the seafood is caught by them (lol my favorite is a toss up between the marlin, fried Dorado and conch salad (I’ve spend the day there once and had lunch and dinner just try more food)

      Hi Susi, nope, I haven’t been to Puerto Rico(or anywhere in the Carribean for that matter), though it sounds tasty. Perhaps someday when I’m living someplace a little closer:-)

Welcome!

I'm Marc, and I want to teach you some basic techniques and give you the confidence and inspiration so that you can cook without recipes too!
