6. Bay Area Malaysian and Singaporean Food Lovers
(For Malaysians & Singaporeans based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Share tips on where to get the best laksa, Hainanese chicken rice, and fish head curry in the Bay Area. Organize bulk orders from home chefs or restaurants to curb homesickness! I’m started this group with the sole purpose of sharing and feeding food Singaporeans and Malaysians grew up eating, which I think we should not be deprived of. I pay full prices for all food I order and gain nothing monetary from the chefs. When I coordinate special events and if and when I do get compensated by the chefs, often the money goes straight in the events’ expenses. I am rewarded from being a part of this food loving community.):
