Singaporean influenced fare in NYC? The only place I have found that serves this is Chef Larry Reuten's Masak, in the East Village. I stopped by recently and had an absolutely terrific meal! You should def. check it out some time too!
Start with one of Masak's Quih Pie Tee, little bites of joy. We had one of each ($2), filled with mushrooms, shrimp, pulled pork, and one with foie gras, sweet corn, and strawberries. All were heavenly.
The chili crab dip ($11) with mantou is quite excellent too. A sweet, well-balanced flavor, with just the right amount of kick, this dip is addictive.
Black Pepper Manila clams ($12), cilantro, black bean, chiles, is a fine appetizer too. You'll want to order some more mantou (steamed bun) to sop up that sauce.
Oxtail noodles ($17), egg noodles, baby bak choi, and shiitake is wonderful.
Fish curry ($19), with American red snapper, okra, eggplant, and carrot, is soothing, delicious, and packed with great flavor.
