Captain’s Curry is the signature order at Singapore, but it’s also a tall order. The chef works with 27 spices in a big wok to create the dish ($11.95). The Nokomis restaurant still attracts a following from its old location in Maplewood, and popular choices include the Singapore rice noodles ($8.95) and the Ayam Gareng Berempah ($11.95), where the chicken is marinated in spices and then baked and stir-fried with veggies to create a spicy, aromatic flavor.
Ate here for a school project. My friend and I got to Singapore early. We waited until it was 5pm which was the opening time for the restaurant. So we got out of my car and stand by the door at 5pm. Nobody was even in the restaurant. So I called the restaurant. The lady answered Singapore. I said are you open? She said I'm running late. I said well my friend and I are cold. She said go sit in your car and wait for me. Man I was pissed off so my friend and I waited in the car. I called her back and I said are you on your way she said yes I'm on 34th Ave. So this lady has a cell for her business plus she's late opening her restaurant. I can't even remember if she said sorry. Her excuse for being late was that she was out shopping with her kids. Whatever! So finally I ate and my friend too. We really loved the food. However the lady didn't offer or discount or nothing for being late. She runs the place by herself. She's the cook, server, and clean up person too. I didn't even leave a tip! I will never go back here again. Like I said the food was good, but the lady wasn't even on time to open her business and she didn't even offer anything for being late!
What a nice find. Ann and I went there one cold night and were greeted by Why. (Remind me to one day write of an entire Abbott-Costello "who's on first" episode on a second visit.) Why was the owner, the host and the chef. We asked her to tell us what she thought was best. She suggested two items: Captain's Catch and Curry Beef. First she toured us through her kitchen, (a 5 second adventure-if you are squeamish-stay out) the food was out-of-the world delish. Especially the Captain's Catch. Decor is old but comfy and there is no liquor license SO..BYOB
Singapore manages to offer not one but two restaurants in the middle of nowhere: Singapore Chinese Cuisine in Maplewood and the more elegant (and emphatic) Singapore! in residential south Minneapolis. At the northern restaurant, try all the curry-rich treats of that former British colony; at the southern one, the menu is a remarkable combination of Malaysian and Ethiopian specialties. At either one, even in the dead of snow-tire winter, the roti prata appetizer alone is worth a journey of... More »
