A True Sea Farm to Table experience – at Shi Tang by Mahota Kitchen
Diners at Shi Tang by Mahota Kitchen at Century Square Tampines may not know this, but all the fish they eat at the restaurant is probably harvested within 24 hours from a sea farm just north of Pulau Tekong! Another fact diners may not know is that the same people who run Shi Tang also […]
Guest Contributor The Food Canon Introduction Private dining is getting very popular during this season and we have more opportunities to taste some good home-cooking. I was invited by my friend Terry (aka The Food Canon) for a Nonya home dining meal recently at Linda’s Table. Nonya dishes are suited for private dining as there are […]
Yong Seng Satay: Still going strong after 70 years
This stall in Bukit Timah food centre is one of the oldest satay stalls in Singapore which has been around for over 70 years. Ask anyone out West where's a good satay and the name Yong Seng would invariably pop up.
Happy Congee: Hong Kong style Chee Cheong Fun and Porridge!
Those of you who have been thinking of trying the Hong Kong Style Congee and Zha Leong after watching our ARC 380 video would be happy to know that they have just opened two branches - - one at 56 Upper Changi Road and the other at Blk 681 Hougang Ave 8! So now you don't have to brave the long queues at the original stall!
There are two satays stalls listed in the Michelin Guide (Michelin plate) and this stall in Chinatown Complex Food Centre is one of them. Now I do think the inspectors do a fairly good job at reviewing fine dining establishments, but when it comes to local hawker food, I think they just don’t do enough […]
Satay is the one thing that I always look forward to eating in Melaka. Their Hainanese style satay is different from the version we have here in Singapore. It’s more salty then sweet and provides a nice contrast to the sweet peanut sauce. Ming’s Sate Hut has been around for three generations and is the […]
What makes this a "Teochew" Steamboat? When I was growing up, I don't remember ever referring to steamboat as "Teochew" or "Cantonese" or "Hainanese". Steamboat, or as we say in Teochew "juang lou" literally means "anything pot" which really is what a Chinese steamboat is all about -- you start with a pot of chicken stock and you put in anything you like! So, I guess a Teochew steamboat is anything that a Teochew would put into the pot!
This stall, tucked in one corner of Old Airport Road Food Centre is the most underrated stall that we have uncovered during our Satay Trail. The most famous satay stall at the Old Airport Road is Chuan Kee where you may sometimes have to wait an hour before you would be served your satay. In contrast, there was hardly a queue at Chye Seng.
When I posted the our mission statement on Facebook recently, I was greeted with a few comments about why we even needed to do that since Satay has always been great, why is there even a need to make it "Great Again"?
Char Kway Teow might be facing an uncertain future, but for Hokkien Mee, the future looks promising. In recent years we have seen next generation hawkers like Xiao Di, Hokkien Man and Liang Ji enter the fray. Today, we showcase our youngest contender, Andre Ong, 22, who started his Hokkien Mee stall at Golden Mile […]
Mapo tofu is one of those dishes that make a regular appearance at our dinner table. It is cheap and easy to cook and it goes so well with rice! But recently, I discovered that you can bring it to the next level by using Pixian Dou Ban that we got from Lazada! In the […]
