Luke’s Lobster Singapore Review
Attended the media preview of Luke’s Lobster which will be serving their famous lobster rolls this Wed 23 Sep at the entrance of Isetan at Shaw Centre. I am sure some of you here would have lined up for their lobster rolls in Tokyo and NY before.
Lam’s Garden: Chef Owner Zi Chars!
The secret to an amazing Zi Char meal is "Wok Hei" (breath of wok) and the key to finding that elusive "Wok Hei" is to find a good chef with a well seasoned wok!

Restaurant Kin: More Straits Cuisine!

Restaurant Home: Big, Fluffy, Ugly Paus like those in Johor!
I had my most memorable Pau encounter years ago when my friend David brought our family to Wee Hoi kopitiam for the “grandma” pau.

I have included everything I have learnt here so that you don't have to go through all the heart aches I have had to go through! So, make sure you read the detailed instructions at the bottom of the post!
House of Kueh: Thin, Chewy, Slippery Soon Kueh!
What makes Angeline's Soon Kueh so unique is the way she makes them. Instead of rolling out the skin first, molding it into the crescent form and steaming it, she actually steams the skin directly on a stretched piece of cloth and forms the Soon Kueh on the made to order steamer which she designed herself!

58 Prawn Mee: Old School Prawn Mee in Bedok
Here's a really shiok prawn mee that has managed to evade many a listicle. I think part of the reason is that they are located in a semi-secluded neighbourhood coffeeshop and so its popularity is largely confined to fans within a certain radius.
