Singapore Roast Chicken Recipe: Modified for the Home Cook
I love the Singapore hawker style roast chicken! In fact, I think I’d go so far to say that if given a choice, ipso facto, I’d choose roast over white.

First, I need to define what I envision the perfect kueh salat to be. I find a lot of commercial kueh salat to be too heavy. The rice layer is thick and gummy and the kaya layer too firm. What I think a perfect kueh salat to be is to have a sublime kaya layer which is light and silky smooth like a pannacotta and a rice layer where the rice grains are still distinct and not so tightly packed so that when you bite into it, the kaya and rice will easily mix together.
I made a few hacks to the traditional Hokkien Mee recipe so that it’s now more practical to make this dish at home! If you ever watch the hawker fry Hokkien Mee, you would probably tell yourself that it is just too difficult to do this at home. In this recipe, I simplify a few […]

The best recipes are those that are simple yet satisfying. There should be a phrase that captures this idea in a more sexy way. Something like "Bang for the Buck" except that it refers to recipes that are relatively simple to do and yet gets oohs and ahhhs all around the table.
