Chin Mee Chin: Where does the Soul of an Eatery Reside?
There are not many culinary institutions left in Singapore, much less those that can boast of an almost 100-year history. So when Chin Mee Chin shuttered its gates in 2018, I am sure that fans of the old-school confectionery must have been crestfallen. However, back then, there was talk of a possible resurrection, so we all held up hope that the gates would open again someday soon.
There are two types of people who eat Yong Tau Foo. The first is the type who are looking for something healthy. They are the ones who would pick the tofu, chilli, bittergourd that are filled with fish paste and have it in a clear soup.

Just what is Singapore cuisine? We have been trying to define it for the longest time, but the answer seems to be as elusive as the answer to the "Meaning of life" or "Why is there suffering in this world" or "Does my wife really mean it when she says she doesn't need any presents for Christmas?"
We really missed our road trips, so we decided to do one in Singapore. Our mission was to discover some of the most Ulu places to eat where you can feel as if you are somewhere else! When we really started looking we were pleasantly surprised to find quite a few gems on our little […]

Ask a group of burgermeisters where they'd go for a seriously good burger and invariably Burger Labo would be mentioned a few times. It was voted best burger by a panel of ST judges in 2019. Objectively, I'd say it would be the most artisan of burgers amongst the 12 contenders.
I can’t remember the last time I ate an Indian Muslim curry puff (karipap). I see it all the time at the Mamak shop, but the neon orange pastry always looked to be like it was going to cause some serious dyspepsia and clog up my arteries, so I’ve never been tempted to buy one. […]
The original idea for Curate was that it would be a place to showcase Michelin Star Chefs from all over the world. We visited when they had just launched the concept back in 2016 and managed to experience three Michelin star chef Esben Holmboe Bang's menu without having to fly all the way to Oslo!
I have recently embarked on my journey of discovery of Sichuan food. I know that Mala hotpots and Mala Xianguo have been very popular in the last few years, but I have never really gotten into it until I started developing a recipe for Mapo tofu.
