weird how a post about a Singaporean lady going to Rome and hating the food can turn into a virtual food fight :wink:

I think that in general most people want to try the cuisine of the country they are visiting, but sometimes a person likes to have something familiar, no matter how widely travelled they are. There's a pub in Phuket called the Green Man that I like to go and eat at when we're there - best pub grub outside the UK I think and although I love Thai food, sometimes it's nice to have a slap up Sunday lunch.

One of the MOST annoying questions (other than "what is the weather like") that gets asked on a travel forum is "I am going to Singapore AND Malaysia. I ONLY want to eat local food and not something from another area. What should I eat in SG and what should I eat in Malaysia"
The responses go on for pages, but there really is no definitive answer to a question like that

I predict within 10 years, that we see less and less Singaporean food in Food Courts in the major shopping Malls in Singapore, and that we will see more variation of food from individual Countries, with price rises to follow. In actual fact we don't see much Singaporean food anyway in the Food Courts like laksa :???: only in the hawker's

And Europeans too - see the complaints that some of the British have about other European destinations!

Should we be looking at some-sort of minimum standard for issuing a passport?
What, like they have to try out 5 new foods at least when they're visiting another country? Or confiscate the chilli sauce/ketchup/brown sauce? And banning them from saying, 'I want ---- (fill in the blanks). None of this foreign muck' or words to that effect. :P
