Singapore supermarkets

Greetings all--

Just wondering what the best supermarket would be in Singapore. Im looking for mainly imported/gourmet foodstuffs. Maybe something along the lines of Food Hall in Bangkok?

Thanks,

Another NYC Hot Dog question

Hey all--

Sorry if this has been answered already, I did some searching, but couldnt find the exact answer.

Basically Im looking for a Grey's Papaya-style place for hot dogs in Manhattan that offers all Kosher dogs, not just "Kosher -style." Something cheap, quick and delicious. Preferrably not a deli. Im pretty sure Gray's and Papaya King are not kosher-correct?

Thanks

Khao soi in Bangkok

I know S&P. Ill check it out, and I wasnt aware that they sell Kao Soi. I also got a tip that SamSen Rd. also has a Northern Thai population, and that I may be able to find some around there.

After living in Jakarta for over 2 years, my gut is pretty strong for street stalls, so I will take my chances.

Thanks all!

boogiebaby, thanks for the tips. I'm planning on checking out a few of those on my food crawl next week! I'll post a report afterwards about how it all went.

Any more suggestions would be great...

Best Indian in Singapore

I'm looking for the real deal, and decidedly not upscale. I've been to Singapore before, and ate very well in Little India. I was jus hoping for some suggestions on places not to be missed. Thanks all!

Best Indian in Singapore

Hey all--

I'm planning a 2 day trip to Singapore next week, and although I get great food in Jakarta, I really miss the selection of Indian. I'd like to get some suggestions about the best Indian places you can think of--either Northern Islamic style or South Indian Thali. I love both!

Thanks,

Best Falafel in NYC?

Hey all--

Great thread! Chalk up one more vote for Mamoun's. I was raised on 'em, so I have a real soft spot for them. They are dependable, affordable, and the falafel is perfect. I usually go with the falafel/hummos combo.
