    My screen saver for several months.

    It's much better now than I remember in the 70's.

    Never worried about that. The Hawker stands my customers and I tend to frequent will burn your tongue off, spicy and hot if you are not careful!:D:)
    Street vendors in HKG are another story.

    Real Kaya toast (done w/charcoal) is not easy to find in SIN, at least in my experience. The SIN Hyatt has a really nice lounge where Kaya is served, the hotel also has a very good restaurant comprised of individual food stalls. Not as cheap as on the street but quality is very high, so if time strapped, head to the Hyatt. http://www.singapore.grand.hyattrestaurants.com/straitskitchen/ But I HIGHLY urge folks to get out and go to the various hawker centers, such a better experience than a sterile hotel environment.

    There are two items missing from the list IMO. One is an oyster omelette, the other is murtabak (I like Zam Zam's)

    oh man, I'm screwed, I've had raw crab at many a Korean restaurant in US and a few in Seoul. The raw crab is mixed with sesame oil, touch of chopped scallion, maybe some ginger, it is an awesome dish.

    You can now consider that you've been warned!

    You may not want to hear this, but when I taught a course in food and waterborne diseases, I would during my first lecture ask folks to raise their hands if they enjoyed sushi, sashimi, ceviche, etc. When I asked the same question during the last lecture, after everyone had heard about the associated dangers of eating live worms, various pathogens, food poisoning, etc. from eating uncooked seafood, a few less hands went up. But that didn't stop the class from heading out to all get sushi after our final exam! :D

    Of the few things I worry about when traveling is airline food. You take for granted that it may not be the best but it is supposed to be safe to eat! I had cholera (back in the stone age) and I wouldn't wish it on anyone especially on a plane! Hopefully it didn't present until after landing.:D
