If I cannot go to Singapore then I think that I will go to this restaurant in Surrey. It is the next best thing. Best suckling pig in Singapore http://www.parrilla.sg/

Singapore Orchid provides authentic Singaporean cuisine cooked using fresh ingredients in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
Went to Singapore Orchid on Saturday with friends after deciding to try something different from the usual Thai. We had the Singaporean/Malaysia journey, effectively a mouth watering menu and on the whole was pleased. The starters took a little while to arrive but were tasty – a selection of satays, chicken lettuce parcel, chicken wings and orchid spare ribs.
The rest followed fairly quickly, a beef rendang, Ananda's (the owner) home-cooked Malaysian curry, banana leaf grill and another chicken dish, served with rice and parathas which were freshly made.
Dessert was good, a trio of tea flavoured ice cream (unusual but pleasant), a coconut stuffed green pancake.
Price was about £25-30 a head for the food, reasonable but what you’d expect for authentic food and drinks were standard prices.
All in all I was impressed and would go back. It has a homely feel to it with the owner there always keen to help.
A sure-fire family favourite. The food is always fabulous - the clay pot curries are to die for, the laksa's are great and it's the only place I eat parsnips! Ananda and Kass's cooking is out of this world - meat or fish, it's always tender, spiced to perfection and melts in the mouth. My all time favourite is the smoked shredded chicken however the family disagree with me as they all have their favourites. Veggies are catered for particularly well, and the streetfood specialities are wonderful. I can't sing the praises of the Singapore Orchid enough. The staff are all knowledgeable and always willing to provide assistance if you can't make up your mind, or are unsure. I love it and can't recommend it enough.
I am really hoping that it stays a secret because it is just a brilliant, individual, special restaurant that serves fusion, singapore street food, you can get chinese dishes, Malay, Thai dishes and everywhere in between! Genuinely I go here once a week, Its only a small restaurant but just in my opinion the best in Surrey! Its in Coulsdon Chipstead Valley Road. If its packed out get a take away. I really should recommend a dish, but its all lovely. Lipsmackingly good and very tasty!
