INFINITE CHOICE

One of my favorite parts about Singapore is the proliferation of cooked food centers, or hawker centers, huge partially outdoor markets with hundreds of tiny food stalls. Perhaps the most impressive is Lau Pa Sat (“old market” in the Hokkien dialect), Singapore’s first wet market, located in the middle of the downtown business district.

The amount of choice is staggering and I was basically picking things at random, guided purely by what looked good to me. As a result, half the time I wasn’t sure what I was eating, like this mystery fruit below. Any ideas?

  1. that might be a starfruit. I find it quite tasteless.

  2. aha! thanks for the identification. i didn’t care for it much either — it tasted like a bell pepper. i much prefer the watermelon + mango…. !
