Yeah, I got them both a long while ago; right when they first came out, I think.
I found another book on Singaporean food in my library. It's called "Shiok!: Exciting Tropical Asian Flavors". I missed it the first time I looked from the nonspecific title.
This is pretty much a recipe book. But each recipe has a somewhat informative introduction, and the recipes are grouped into categories like Hawker Favourites, Peranakan Classics, Home-style Dishes, etc.
So if you were to study the recipes carefully, you can kinda get a good sense of what Singaporean cuisine is all about.
Unfortunately, I believe it's out of stock on Amazon.
