Daisy’s Dream is a vendor in the Urban Hawker food hall that specializes in Peranakan cuisine, and they’ve got the best bowl of laksa in Midtown. The sour soup base very obviously contains a lot of shrimp paste, but there’s enough coconut to balance it out. If you want a less involved (aka less liquid) lunch, get the nasi lemak with a side of meatballs to go and pick at the crispy pink hunks of meat and whole school of fried anchovies as you walk through the chaos outside.

Singlish

Singlish is a semi-hidden bar above Chard near Union Square with expertly made Southeast Asian-influenced cocktails. The space is tiny, so make a reservation if you don't handle rejection well.
