Spice Market opened by billing its cuisine as “Asian street food,” but if you want the real deal, your best bet might be at Whole Foods (the Bowery location) on September 19 at 6:30 p.m. The Singapore Tourism Board is flying over street vendors from Singapore. Along with K.F. Seetoh, author of a guide to Singapore dining, they’ll show how to make dishes like Hokkien prawn noodles, Singaporean laksa chicken curry, and fried carrot cake (actually made from stir-fried daikon, soy sauce, eggs, garlic, and spring onion). The $30 admission fee (register by calling 866-462-2838) gets you a free copy of Singaporean cookbook Timeless Recipe and — the advantage of not being on the street when you eat this stuff — free Tiger beer.
