Anson Town: Turnip Chee Cheong Fun!
If you don't wish to travel all the way to Anson to try the Chee Cheong Fun, then the good news is that a similar version is available right here in Singapore. This particular shop, which sells Teluk Intan style chee cheong fun has already been around for a few years but has recently changed hands and undergone a complete renovation. The new owner, Michelle, a Singaporean who was born and brought up in Teluk Intan bought over the shop so that she can re-create her favourite dishes which she used to enjoy as a kid.
Carogold Roast Chicken Recipe!
Chinese Style Roast Chicken is one of my all time favourite dishes. But you probably realize that this "roast" chicken is a misnomer because the way they cook the chicken is to deep fry the whole bird in a big vat of oil! Unlike the Western style roast chicken which is traditionally a dish served at home for Sunday lunches , not many Chinese families would actually cook "Roast" Chicken at home. Roasting a whole bird in the oven is something very practical for the modern kitchen as most homes would have an oven. However, not many kitchens are equipped to deep fry a whole bird, so the Chinese Roast Chicken is something you usually eat outside.
Jane’s Cake Station: Jalan Kayu’s Two Trick Pony
With Singapore progressing so rapidly in culinary sophistication, it is amazing to see Jane’s Cake Station still holding its own with just its two signature cakes whose recipe hasn’t been changed for ages! But ask around about where to buy Singapore’s best chocolate fudge or durian cake and Jane’s Cake Station would invariably pop up. […]
Carogold Chicken: HPB Certified Healthier Choice Chicken!
Advertorial Carogold Chicken You have probably come across Sakura Chicken and Cordyceps chicken at the supermarkets before right? Ever wondered where these chickens come from and what makes them different? To find out, I visited the Kee Song brothers’ farms in Johor to learn about their cutting edge technology in chicken farming. In 2005, Kee […]
Ieatishootipost Project: Clean Water Batam
Safe, drinking water is something we all take for granted in Singapore. However, there are millions around the world who do not have access to clean water. Water is the source of life and dirty water is not just dirty but deadly. 1.8 million people die of diseases related to dirty water every year, which […]

Food Glossary: Good Morning Nanyang Cafe Re-booted!
I first met Byron way back in Nov 2006 when the blog was just three months old. He had come across the photos on my blog and wanted to engage me to take some photos of his food for him. That was when I discovered, what I would still consider to this day, one of […]
Jin Fine Dining: The ieatishootipost $80 Eight course menu!
Fans of Chef Thomas Kok would be pleased to know that one of Singapore’s pioneers of Japanese food has just opened his newest restaurant at the Amoy Hotel at Far East Square! I have known Chef Thomas since his days at Hokkaido Sushi and he has been instrumental in my research on Sushi. With his […]
Seletar Shen Mian: Just follow the Queue!
This ban mian stall in Singapore has somehow avoided my radar for many years! I don’t remember anyone recommending them whenever I ask for Ban Mian recommendations. I only stumbled upon them one day when I spotted the long queue outside their stall at the Toa Payoh Lor 8 market. That is very surprising because […]
Salted Fish Minced Pork Recipe
This is a very popular home cook dish in Singapore because it is so easy to make and extremely tasty. Most Singaporeans will probably remember grandma or mum making it. But as with everything, the difference between a good dish and a great dish is the attention to details. Sure, anyone who has a few […]
Hao Ji Bao: Handmade fresh, Sold out in mins!
I have been on the lookout for the old grandma style pau ever since I ate the pau at Wee Hoi in JB with Johor Kaki. So far, the closest one that I have found were the ones at Joo Huat Pau at Circuit Road Food Centre. Then, some of our readers alerted me to […]
Lai Huat Sambal Fish (East Coast): 2nd Gen Cze Charpreneur
If you ask anyone where to eat Sambal fish, the name Lai Huat would invariably get mentioned. But just like other popular eateries like "Hong Kong St" and "Ubin Seafood" there are more than one Lai Huat, so which one are they referring to and are these eateries related or did someone just set up his own restaurant and claim the "Lai Huat" name just because they had worked in the kitchen for a few months?
Tang Tang Hokkien Mee: No Sifu, Just Pure Passion!
John's Hokkien Mee is one of the best that I have eaten. The noodles are nice and charred and the flavours are complex and rounded, unlike a lot of places where it is pretty one dimensional because the main source of umami comes from MSG crystals. It still can't beat Alex's Geylang Lor 29 Hokkien Mee, but it is comparable if not better than a lot of the other well established ones.
