1929 Hotel in Chinatown
tonight, we met up with Melvyn, Tracy and Zander in Chinatown. and i got to try the Singapore’s delicacies, Fish Head in Asam Sauce.
i first saw this dish when i was still in NYC, watching the Amazing Race. the contestant have to eat the Eye of the fish in order to proceed to the next challenge. i thought, mmm, i gotta try that dish… so, i finally have the chance tonight. i tried the eye (which was only one per dish, they cut the fish-head in half)… it taste like any other fish eyes…. i don’t understand what so special about it. maybe because there is only one eye per dish? or maybe eating eyes are disgusting for certain people? anyways, the asam sauce was excellent. i will definitely order this dish again. it’s yummy.
by the way, i’m still amazed with the picture quality taken with ari’s mobile phone… they definitely don’t look like pictures from camera phone.
