Travel Editor SINGAPORE (UPI) - You need never go hungry in Singapore. And what's more, you will have a variety of cuisines to choose from. Travel Topics You can dine in style at scores of elegant hotel dining l corns and restaurants offering European, Chinese, Indian, Malay and other dishes served by uniformed waiters. Or stuff yourself on Oriental .delicacies at countless outdoor 'food stalls that spring up in the streets of Singapore around nightfall and often remain open until dam During the day, itinerant food vendors hawk tantalizing tidbits almost everywhere. "THE CHINESE like to , eat," said our guide, herself of ; Chinese descent. "The Hindu ' will eat no meat, the Moslem no pork, but the Chinese will eat everything." Among the most popular and convenient snack bars is the "Satay Club" overlooking the harbor only a few blocks from Change Alley and Raffles Place. About 30 stalls open about 6 p.m. and you can gorge yourself on satay- succulent chunks of beef, mutton or chicken braised over a charcoal, skewered on a bamboo stick and dipped in a spicy peanut sauce. The tab is determined by the number of empty sticks on your dish — usually about five cents U.S. for each. There are other Malay and Indian specialities also available. If you can't wait until 6, there's the "Old Market" - or Telok Ayer Market — on the other side of Raffles Place also on the waterfront. Here there are some 190 stalls selling fresh market produce and a variety of cooked Chinese foods. The market is popular at lunchtime with business and other workers in the nearby business district. FOR ALL -NIGHT eaters, there is, among others, the Orchard Road Car Park in Chinatown. After business hours, when the last car has left, food stalls are set up where you can sample alm'ost every type of food available in Singapore, include the various cuisines of China. A favorite dish is Hokkien "mee" — noodles boiled in soup or stock with green vegetables and meat or prawns. "Dinner" for two here would set you back about $1 U.S. and no tipping is necessary. Orchard Road also is the site of a "pasar malam" or night bazaar if you should want to do any shopping. There are pasar malams and food stands, featuring Indian, Malay, Indonesian and other SALE!

And prices, even in the top-rated restaurants, are moderate. For example, a nine-course dinner at the swank Shang Palace in the luxury Shangri- La Hotel ran about $5 per person. The menu included cold meat combination, deep fried chicken liver rolls, pan fried prawns with cashew nuts, mashed melon soup with crabmeat, barbecued Pekin duck, baked chicken in salt, sweet and sour fish, fried rice Yang Chan style and seasonal fruits. Hot cloths and finger- bowls were provided before and after dinner. The meal was served family-style with platters of food being placed on a huge lazy susan within easy reach of all 10 of us seated at a round talbe. Each diner served himself, either with chopsticks or fork. I VISITED Singapore with 15 other U.S. travel writers as guests of the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board, Singapore Airlines, Pan American World Airways and the Tourism Development Unit of American Express. Singapore, lying off the tip cf the Malay peninsula about 85 miles north of the equator, .boasts some of the most luxurious hotels in the Far East in addition to duty-free shopping and other attractions. Sightseeing highlights include "Instant Asia," a daily show under a tent featuring classical Chinese, Indian and Malaylsian dances. The pretty, costumed dancers later pose willingly for, and with, visitors. A Japanese tour group must have spent a fortune in yen for films.
