Been out walking around. Went down to the Fullerton Hotel and the Financial District to see where the office is!
Treated to a laser show whilst walking to dinner tonight
Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle has indeed moved upmarket, no doubt due to it's popularity and fame. It's now in a building across the road from the Chinatown Complex and looks to be a fully fledged restaurant. There was a large queue outside, and crowd control barriers! Problem for me is that it's now just another restaurant, not the Michelin starred hawker stall that gave it its air of quirkiness. Lost a bit of it's appeal. Didn't bother with it in the end, but a good story nonetheless.Read more
When in Rome.....
So, went looking for Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle. Found a place with the name emblazoned all over it but was closing up for the night. Not sure it's the real place anyway, as everything I recall about seeing it says its just a street hawker stall and this was a full on restaurant with plenty of seating. Either a blatant rip off or Mr Man has upscaled. Chinatown is only a short walk from the hotel so may have another look tomorrow.Read more
Arrived in Singapore at 8ish this morning. Although chaotic on board, as soon as we stepped off into the cruise terminal everything went really quickly. We were through and in a cab about 10 minutes after setting foot on Singaporean soil, and at the hotel about 20 minutes later. It's the same hotel that we stayed on on our first visit, and has had a refurb. All very smart. There's even a smartphone in our room loaded with maps to take around town with us, and to use for free calls home! Off out this evening to try to find this Michelin starred Hawker stall - Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle.Read more
The Bonic bar looks fun but does spill the occasional drink!
