After our shopping of affordable buys at Bugis Street, Bogs and Allan (my hubby’s former office mates, now based in Singapore) treated us a heafty lunch at Food Republic (our version of Food Court) at level 4 of Wisma Atria shopping mall in Orchard Road.
They wanted us to taste Singapore’s popular foods. They ordered Hokkien mee prawn noodles, steam pork, chicken and beef, hot plate braised meet, tom yum fish and of course rice.
Mine was Hokkien mee. It consists of egg noodles, prawns, squid, sliced pork and garnished with vegetables. It was so tasteful but so big that I was satiated fast. The tom yum fish was spicy (I really don’t like spicy food) but I want to taste every food served on the table. Hot plate braised beef was also tasteful, but I couldn’t afford to eat rice anymore. And the last one that I tasted was the steam pork, chicken and beef.
Well, all of these foods were tasteful. Pao couldn’t eat two cups of rice because of big serving of Hokkien mee.
After the main dish, we craved for dessert so we went down to Starbucks Coffee at level 3. Unfortunately, it was jam-packed. Bogs told us there’s another Starbucks Coffee along Orchard Road.
But before we set off, the two boys will tour us to popular shopping malls along Orchard Road to see wide array of international brands and world class dining options.
