Arab Street is where people go when looking for beautiful fabrics for dresses and decorating. In fact this is what prompted us to bus down there - a hole in Jen's couch cushion. Each shop offers rows and rows of material beauty. There are tailors in each shop willing to sew up a gown for as little as S$25. Not bad...
We enjoyed sharing a meze platter (haydari, hummus, patates salate, sakusuka, patlacaw salata and lavish) and some Iskander lamb kababs with Turkish coffee and fistikli balkava and kaddyif burma to top it off. I took a risk when ordering a drink. I selected ayran which turned out to be a cold whipped yogurt/buttermilk drink served in a brass mug. It was very good!
This neighborhoods has now been added to places we will take visitors to see.
