More Food From Geylang
Geylang is a red light district of Singapore that - surprise, surprise - also has some of the best known local food in Singapore. Given the disappointment we encoutered at the hotpot place on Lorong 23, we made our way down to the "Geylang Famous Beef Kway Teow" (237 Lorong 9). It may look like sludge in the photo, but the beauty of this place's food is the heavily smoky taste in the noodles, combined with some very (albeit probably artifically) tender slices of beef. I don't like all that gravy crap on top though, so next time I'm going to order the "dry" version, which is something that I have not really been able to find in Singapore.
Around the corner from this place is Yong He Eating House, a 24 hour Taiwanese breakfast place like the similarly-named one in Taipei (I presume that these guys are not related, but I could be wrong). They feature all the usual things, ranging from soybean milk to yu tiao, both of which were better than I was expecting, especially considering how far we were from Taipei. They also had a "Taiwanese noodle," which is actually the oyster noodle that is so popular in Taiwan. This version here was definitely a far cry from Taiwan (mushy noodles and - ugh - a sweet chili sauce), but was still better than I was expecting.
