Shortly after our flight, we got a transfer to Intercontinental Singapore (more on that later) – and after waiting forever for a very confused gentleman to find his credit card (and his brain) – we finally got checked in and decided that we wanted a bit of food.
Ms. Buddha is a huge fan of Laksa, so Sungei Road Laksa was the order of the day and we caught an Uber there – which almost always requires no waiting time in Singapore. Because I remember the size of the laksa at Sungei was on the small size, I decide to have oyster omelet at the Berseh Food Centre close to Sungei as well.
We roamed around and found a place called Yang Lin and ordered – the wait was quite long and although that normally means that the chef is taking his time to make the dish great – this was not the case.
When the food came – Ms. Buddha and I was frankly expecting too much – the egg was by far too overcooked and the oysters were tasteless – a real disappointment ☹
After the disappointing dish, I pointed at Sungei and Ms. Buddha was ready! It was about 2pm when we got there and Ms. Buddha was shocked to see a queue – I acted like an expert and told her that’s how it is. Whilst we waited, Ms. Buddha inspected the old master at work.
One thing about the storefront at Sungei is you can’t spot the price easily – and Ms. Buddha kept asking “How do you know how much it is?” (It’s 3 SGD)
We ordered the only thing that was available and made our way to a free table – the laksa continues to be delicious and more than compensate for the disappointment that is Yang Lin. Once again, I cannot get enough of the blood clams!!
