Singapore School Lunch - Fried Anchovies
Contents: Fried anchovies, omelette, cabbage stir-fry with tomato and beansprouts, and chicken chop.
Notes: "In Singapore, the school canteen consists of several stalls selling different types of food, run by different individuals. It's rather like a mini foodcourt. Students are free to purchase anything they fancy. There are national guidelines in place to ensure that the food is healthful. Some schools go the extra mile - they ban deep-fried food and processed meats.
I say all these to explain my husband's hodge-podge lunch. As a hungry visitor, this is what he had:
At the Muslim food stall, he bought a plate of fried rice with three sides - crispy fried anchovies, omelette and cabbage stir-fry with tomato and beansprouts - for $2.
He walked his plate over to the Western food stall, bought Chicken Chop - minus the trimmings - for $1. He notes that the chicken is skinless.
Then, he walked over to the Snack stall and bought 2 pieces of Garlic Bread for $1. The Garlic Bread never made it into the picture."
