A Taste of Singapore

Edit This

It's the best place for when you miss home. living in chongqing & loving the food is my life here, but when i get the craving for some "familiar" chinese food (not volcano spicy & swimming in oil), there's always the singapore to pig out at. they also have a killer fish & chips which satisfies me every now and then! (being british n all)

we normally go with the other foreign students on fridays when it's half-price on all the cocktails & mixed drinks. it's great for us in shapingba so we don't need to go all the way downtown to party. probably my favourite more..
