Lol... you mean Singapore Noodles?

Reminds me of the 1st Grand Prix in SG and they were interviewing Ecclestone. One question was 'Have you had any good food, what is your favourite?'... and he went into raptures about 'Singapore Noodles'. Which of course does not exist outside of the UK :)

thats the one....apparently first started in hkg then spread to UK and US

ive not seen any here yet, will have to make my own!

i guess its the same as in asia, the version of "westen" sausages, firstly in UK it would never be chicken and secondly would never me a processed mixture of meat and flour.

This keeps happening to me.

How can I get XZY (blame the freakin German Keyboard not me!)


And the solution that keeps coming back is, just make it yourself.

Can't get Baked Beans?... this weeks project!

To be honest, there isnt much you can get in the local takeaway here!!

English Recipe :D

You need a tin opener for those though.

Have weened myself off baked beans when in Singapore, will partake in some beans on toast though when I am back in the UK for a holiday in 3 weeks time though.

Fairprice were selling Terry's Choc oranges for a while , I was buying 6 a week to try and keep them interested, but alas they have stopped selling them. At least in Pasir Ris at any rate.

i think i did see imported ones...obviously more expensive. The UK recipe ones are manufactured in Australia. The standard ones are manufactured in China / malaysia

on a side note, Mustafas has a lot of english imported stuff, from what i remember on a recent trip

Aunt Bessies
McCain (strictly canadian but popular in UK)
Iceland frozen foods
Walls (UK price marked)
Heinz cheesecakes
Thorntons chocolates (actually went into administration this month)

however still no Hollands pies :cry:

Good point. Asian take-outs in the UK have everything, but when you eventually get to Asia the take-outs are crap in comparison.

Go figure.

Hey jsc, you can try this seafood restaurant across the causeway in Johor Bahru. http://www.makansutra.com/reviews/2010_0719/index.html

It is frequented by many Singaporeans, therefore it is not surprising to find many singapore cars parked along the road. I've frequented this place a few times and i must say the fried vermicelli is simply one of the best i've tasted. Haven't tasted this kind of quality fried vermicelli in Singapore.

I would recommend you to give it a try. :D
