    Congratulations tomcat. You just posted the equivalent of "if it is not Sukhamvit, it is not Thailand".....

    Umm....food is not all that's needed for a place to have 'bags of character', is it?

    Well, Singapore *is* food.

    But each of those places has its own ambiance. Its where the Singaporeans are.......

The best in the world. Bar none.
    Sorry, disagree. Best and original chili crab was at Ponggal point decades ago. They then moved and morphed into Longbeach on ECP.

    No worries - Longbeach is good also, but to be fair, I prefer the ambience at Newton (in the event of not being able to go back in time 20 or 30 years!)

    Still, arguing about where is the best (of any food) is a well honoured Singaporean pastime.

    Now there is somewhere I had forgotten about, Ponggal - we used to water ski there and off course eat Chilli crab.
    My first port of call in Singapore is usually Muddy Murphys, now back at Claymore Road with views over the 4 floors!
    Surprised last time was there to find Jasons had closed down, also Harry's bar Claymore now gone, remember when they took over from Dennys! Jasons had been there forever!

    To be fair, I think my first seafood dinner in Singapore was at Ponggal - that would be back in about 1985.
