    I’m no expert but that second photo isn’t congee. And food court laksa in Singapore beats any laksa in Shanghai. God I’d kill for some white pepper crab too!

    @WoAi No, the name of the restaurant is Tasty Congee and Wantun.

    I’ve even written about it before

    I would easily push an old man off a bike if we could get a Singapore style food court here in Shanghai.

    @wl – yeah, well, I miss every place I’ve ever lived (since at least age 5 at least, I don’t really miss Pittsburgh) – I miss Singapore too, and its not home!

    Yay! I’m off to Singapore in a week, lots of yummy laksa for me!
