Singapore style pickles

Pickles are something that each and every country has. In Japan's Tsukemono, Korea's Kimchi, there's also everyone's favourite like Pickled Cucumber that you can get it all over the globe. As for myself, I think that Pickles to a certain extent are pretty much similar to appetizers. They are around to help you to build your appetite. :D

So as for today....

'Chicken Rice with Acar'
'Acar' would a type of Pickles that can be found in the South
East Asia. It's made up of ingredients like Carrots, Cucumber,
Pineapple, Peanuts, etc... Loved the sweet and sour taste of it.
Especially when there is lots of peanuts all over the 'Acar'. :D

Either ways, as mentioned earlier, Pickles are good appetizers.
And it's not like everywhere you go you can get it. The best
way to get it was probably be Chinese restaurants or probably
places that sells economical rice. After placing a plate of
Chicken Rice here, I was expecting a plate of rice with a few
pieces of cucumber and a few pieces of chicken meat. I was pretty
surprised that they are serving 'Acar' with it. To some extent,
I think that the chicken rice is pretty normal but by adding
'Acar' to it, has definitely push it to a completely different
level. If you are experiencing bad appetite without a good reason
you probably want to pop by the place and give the chicken rice
a good try. :D
(That reminds me I think it has been more than half a year since
I have last tasted 'Acar'. =.="")

So where can you get this delicacy?
