The ninenine eating house on upper weld street behind little India. Dont remember seeing it before so thought id check it out - nothing special really but at $2.50 not much to complain about either...
Rice & 3 Veg as advertised, stirfried greens, okra and egg stirfried with cabbage and carrots. Nothing a bit of chilli sauce couldn't have helped but theres was very mild.

Lunch at a Korean BBQ near Bugis $15 for a 2 hour "slot" whilst the meat raw doesnt look appealing it was completely delicious
We ordered spicy chicken, beef,pork and kimchi with assorted pickles
sauteed vegetables and a rice dish with beef, chicken and mutton and an egg stirred through - again a real hit.
The rice cakes on the other hand were just weird!
Will definitely go back and have resolved to try more Korean food in future!

WE started with Otak Otak - a dish of curried mackeral which was by far the best i have tried here in singapore, juicy and flavourful. Kueh pie tees (little pastry cups filled with sweet turnip and shrimp) were sweeter than im used to but again, very good. Achar (pickles) and then shared mains of assam pedas (fish and tamarind curry) Chicken rendang, honey pork and Sambal petai squid were all (with the exception of the squid that was oddly bland and seemed to have been boiled) very tasty indeed. The honey pork in particular which we ordered on a whim was delicious as was a betel leaf and cashew rice dish recommended by the waitress. Dessert was a shared sago and gulu malaka (palm sugar) concoction that was completely addictive. Highly recommend Chilli Padi for anyone visiting Singapore and wanting to sample authentic, local cuisine.

We shared cereal prawns - huge juicy prawns cooked in the shells and coated in cereal crumbs. A lemon chicken dish (my friend chose this - i wasnt too fussed but it was pretty good) Sambal kang kong, a spinach like leafy green vegetable in chilli, fried rice and some satay. We had a weird ice kachang dessert - it had sweetcorn and beans in it - not to my taste but at least i tried it :-)
