Uh-Oh... I Got Tagged

I got tagged by Avi, a funny, sex-obsessed guy who loves his wife (I think she's eligible for sainthood), music, fast cars, and food. I think he might like some other things too, but I'm not sure what they are.

The Rules:
  1. Add a direct link to your post below the name of the person who tagged you. Include the state and country you’re in.
  2. List out your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location (locally).
  3. Tag 5 other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know they’ve been tagged.
This is going to be a little difficult seeing as how the food in Singapore is wonderful and usually inexpensive. Most of the time it's cheaper to eat out than it is to cook a meal at home. It's just that I don't like to get dolled-up every night to go out to dinner -- it's too much work. I can't go out looking like a dowdy matron since Singaporean women are all about youth, beauty, sexiness, and high-heels.

OK, Here are my 5 favorite places to eat in Singapore:

  1. River Quay Seafood in Boat Quay -- I've blogged about this riverside restaurant many times. The food is fabulous (my favorite is cheese lobster) and the service is top-notch.
  2. Bobby's in Chijmes -- we've eaten there more than a few times now and the prime-rib has always been perfect. I usually have to tell them that I don't want any sort of sauce on it and request horseradish, but they are happy to accommodate me -- even if they think it's strange. Their desserts are heavenly too. We usually share one because we're too full from the meal.
  3. The American Club -- has the best cheeseburgers in town. As a matter of fact, I had to have one Sunday evening just to get rid of the memory of that horrid burger in Belgium (I just know it had horsemeat in it)! I never get the bacon on them though because the bacon isn't right and tastes weird to me. My other favorite meal there is the ox-tail, with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. It's just good ol' comfort food for me.
  4. Esmirada in Chijmes and Orchard Road -- I love the lamb skewers and Greek salad. I've only tried a couple of other items there, which were good, but for me, the lamb skewers are scrumptious.
  5. Modesto's -- a nice, but very casual Italian restaurant with outdoor seating. The pizzas have a wood-fired thin crust. My fav has a nice tomato sauce, artichoke hearts, ham, and lots of cheese. The pastas are always yummy too.
Previous players:
Now, keeping in mind the whole "locality" issue of this meme, I'm tagging the following people:

  1. Karla, from Tales of a Texpatriate (Norway)
  2. MrsRW, from Things to Say (Chicago, IL)
  3. Krup, from I'm Just Sayin' (New York, NY
  4. Jessica, from Daughter of Opinion (St. Louis, MO)
  5. Mr. Anchovy, from anchovy (Toronto, ONT)

OK, I did it. Though I will be a bit of a let down as we never eat out in Norway, too expensive....

I like boobs, too. Don't forget about boobs.

Karla said...

oops. My blog exploded and ate not only my post but all my comments. After hours of trying to fix it, I think it's done but I am scared to try and repost. So will do so tomorrow, when maybe everything has settled down a bit.....AGH what a day.
Avitable likes boobs? Wow! Half the world has them, so he must be a happy guy.
