Five days of heavily spiced curries + wide array of Indian carb deliciousness + sugary milk desserts + aversion to raw veggies due to extreme fear of tummy problems = me making a beeline for something refreshing and light but still filling and yummy when I arrived in Singapore.
Enter an old favorite: thunder tea rice.
Bowl of rice + lightly cooked veggies (steamed?) + dried fish + fish flakes + peanuts + side of pulverized tea leaves with mint, cilantro, and other herbs.
