In Which Supper is a Singaporean Throwback…

Nonya laksa and a ginger-lime soda

Nonya laksa and a ginger-lime soda

The last time I was in Singapore was a little over a decade ago when I was there for an aviation industry event.  (At the time, I was handling PR and marketing work for a small Philippine aerospace company.)  Because our boss left us to our own devices in the evenings, I opted to roam the streets in search of Singapore-specific nosh and fell utterly in love with spicy, creamy Nonya-style laksa.

Years later, I still love a good laksa and, fortunately, ToastBox does a properly spiffy one: rich with coconut milk, deliciously spicy with a faint tinge of the sea, loaded to the gills with laksa leaf, purple basil, and poached prawns.  Sheer bliss.

Throw in a peppy ginger and fresh lime soda and my weekend is off to a great – albeit stormy – start.
