Over our two (half) days exploration, we ate quite a bit. On the first day, we were on a quest, a food quest. But as most of us were already exhausted from the morning’s activities, we decided to just take in the sights and sounds and have a bite or two. Even so we managed to eat quite a few things. It was a blur of food activity as we walked, looked and ate (in the scorching afternoon heat). As a result of that, I can’t remember the names of the places we ate at (same goes for the second day as well haha).
|Chicken Rice Balls and herbal jelly and...|
|... even more food!|
|And the walking|
|Nancy's Kitchen even had Tripadvsior stamp of approval. Too bad we were not able to try it this time|
|Peranakan Culture and Heritage|
Famished from all that walking, we went in and made our order, which was recommended by the owner consisting of:
- Ngoh hiang (a five-spice meat roll)
- Nonya Chap Chye
Cabbage stewed with vegetables such as carrotsm dried beancurd skin, dry lilybuds, small black fungus & tanghoon in taucheo (blackbean) gravy.
In-house made and served with kidney beans, shaved ice, coconut milk and gula melaka. The shaved ice was soft and melt in the mouth.
- Buah Keluak
- Ayam (Chicken) Ponteh - Homely chicken stew with potatos, Otah and Prawn Curry
|The spread! Well, part of it... :p|
|The interior of Christ Church|
|The souvenir shops outside Christ Church and the ongoing construction|
There is even a museum with a man-made mini brown dinosaur on the way to the hotel (which we passed by every time we made our way to Jonker Street from the hotel).
|Vibrant and super decorated rides!|
