A Bostonian restaurant in the heart of Chinatown SG.... seriously?!

Me: "What's that across the street?"

Friend looks, and says. "Oh really?"

Me: Oh I must take a picture of it.



Let's see what drinks they've got. Hmm...


Wine? Okayyyy, nevermind. What about food?



I see...

Huh, look at that. They serve Nonya (Straits Chinese) food.

What some of it is:
Ayam Pedas = chicken with chilli
Chap Chye Nonya = mix vegetable stew
Ikan Selar Sambal = grilled fish with chilli
Sotong Sambal Chilli = Squid in shrimp paste chilli
Chendol = a dessert, coconut milk, ice, red bean and green jelly strips.

Some palm trees and banana trees here, along with wooden benches for sitting.


The flower of a banana tree is large and in the shape of a beak.
