Street Food: Singapore

Airport Road Food Centre has a couple dozen excellent food stalls, including Lao Ban (stall 1-107). Join the queue for a small tub of soya: barely sweet, ­custard-soft tofu that satisfies, variously, as a dessert, an appetizer, a ­palate-cleanser, or a digestif. Maxwell Food ­Centre (pictured) is another food court with even more stalls selling even more tempting dishes from everywhere across southern Asia. One of the iconic stalls is Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice (No. 10), which serves, well, chicken rice, an utterly succulent chicken cooked in chicken broth and served with chicken broth–boiled rice.
