Singapore - Bai Nian Niang Dou Fu in Albert Centre and Gardens by the Bay



After an afternoon at Gardens by the Bay (see later in this post), we were hungry and didn't want to go far. Somehow we had neglected to notice the Albert Centre Market food court even though it was only about a block from our hotel and we had walked past it a number of times.



We stopped in for a bowl of yong tau foo at Bai Nian Niang Dou Fu. It was easily the busiest stall in the building, with a long line of people waiting for bowls of their soup.



After eating, we understood why there was a line. The bowl contained one each of a number of very tasty morsels - including tofu, shrimp ball, pork ball. Each was delicious in its own right.



We liked it so much that we came back for a second bowl the morning we flew out of Singapore. The line was still very much in evidence.



Our trip was mostly about food, but we did do a little bit of sight-seeing while in Singapore. We really enjoyed our visit to Gardens by the Bay, with their giant "trees":



And huge conservatories housed in giant, temperature-controlled domes.



The cloud forest dome was fantastic, with its impressive scale and equally impressive details.



And then there is the giant baby sculpture. Yeah, I don't know quite what to make of it either...
