Old Village KL Pork Noodle Soup: Cheap and Good, Comfort Food
This whole hawker thing is actually quite simple. You just need to be able to make something familiar, delicious and cheap and very soon you will get a long queue. Then, word will start spreading on social media and before long, you will be opening a second stall. If you don't believe me, just keep your eye on this particular stall. This unassuming little stall had just opened barely a month ago and they have already attracted a perpetual queue from the time they open at 7am till they sell their last bowl at around 2pm!

I grew up knowing only one kind of hotpot which we used to refer to as "Steamboat". It's the kind that mum would make by putting together a pot of chicken broth, some meats, seafood, and a simple chilli sauce. Truth be told, I wasn't a big fan of hotpot in my younger days. Poached chicken just didn't quite appeal to me as much as fried chicken, burgers or beef steaks!
I never grew up eating Mee Hoon Kueh. My first exposure to it was during my young adulthood when Ban Mian was all the rage. From what I gather, this is one of those homely dishes which many Singaporeans grew up eating. At its core is the basic hand-torn noodles, which are probably the simplest way of turning […]
I am not a Korean food expert, but my friend, Cactuskit is. He’s the type of guy who would pack his four kids into an MPV and drive across the Korean Peninsula to look for good food! So, when he told me that he has found his new, favorite Korean restaurant, I thought that I might […]
2021 Mid-Autumn Festival with Citi Gourmet Pleasures
By Lisa As a child, the mooncake festival was really a treat where we get to light up our lanterns and walk around the estate. I’ll always remember dad slicing a pomelo carefully like an open flower, removing the flesh and using wires to secure the “petals” to fashion a pomelo lantern! Part of the […]

Little India is somewhat like the "Final Frontier" for me or perhaps the "Undiscovered Country". You can walk along its narrow streets and forget that you are actually in Singapore! I actually find Indian food very tasty. The problem is that I can't stomach too much of the spices, so I don't eat it too often. But every now and again, someone would bring me to an Indian meal and I always end up wondering why I don't eat it more often!
Reimondo Food Truck: Wok Hei Congee and Smokey Seafood Rolls!
The rise of Reimondo's Seafood Congee is nothing short of a miracle. Birthed during the Covid pandemic earlier this year, no one would have ever thought that Raymond would be opening a 2nd stall so soon at Timbre+ so soon! I first wrote about his stall on 5th Feb and by the end of March, he had joined the ranks of hawkers with hour-long queues, thanks to the power the Social Media.
