Drunken Cockles from Putien, Singapore
If that looks like a lot of garlic, it was. And normally I hate dishes that are drowning in garlic (well, almost all of them, I suppose). So I was surprised when this item from a chain of restaurants in Singapore called Putien turned out to be refreshingly good. These cockles were served cold, and the garlic wasn't as overpowering as it might look, thus keeping it nicely in check. It was only after we paid the bill did I realize that these were called "drunken cockles"...it must have been a really light rice wine or something if there were any alcohol in it.
