What a great morning we had on the American Association Singapore’s Bike and Bite Tour this weekend. With our tour guides Jeff and PS, we did an easy breezy, lots-of-eating tour on wheels of the Katong and East Coast area. We got to visit lots of little local eateries both well-known and off the beaten path. Have you ever seen the Netflix series on Street Foods? The featured Putu Puring stall in Geylang was our first stop!
We were introduced to more foods and snacks on this tour than I could count. We had the kind of dumplings one eats during the Dragon Boat festivals, mackeral otah, ondeh ondeh, the best curry puff ever and kuehs galore just to name a few.
What’s more, Jeff and PS had it so logistically well planned, that we didn’t even have to wait in line, or as they say here, queue, for anything. The food was ready for us by the time we arrived at each eatery! It wasn’t all just eating though: we were also introduced to some historic tidbits of the area and learned a bit about the Peranakan culture, as well. There were also some great insta ops including the famous colorful shophouses on Koon Seng Road, the tiny Medley Alley and the now iconic turtle that marks the original East Coast coastline.
Don’t know what some of these foods or where some of these places are that I’ve mentioned? Then I suggest you sign up for the repeat of this tour on Saturday, July 31, to try it out! I promise you will not be disappointed!!
