Black Pig Tonkatsu (Top Grade): $25.80 with Soup, Rice and Salad I think I have really fallen in love with a little black pig. I don’t know why, but it seems to me that creatures which are black tend to command a premium price for their meat. Consider Black Chicken, Japanese Black Hair beef, Black […]
Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint: Move over Colonel Sanders, I also got 11 Herbs and Spices!
With iwatch_ueat and SCS Butter I am beginning to realize the only common thing about Char Siew is the fact that it is long strips of marinated meat! No, some people don’t even BBQ their Char Siew and it still passes off as Char Siew. (I am not in anyway endorsing this, but I even […]
Sin Huat Seafood Restaurant: Inside the Mind of a Food Nazi
With Amagada Crab Bee Hoon $63 One big crab I finally plucked up the courage to visit Sin Huat Seafood Restaurant! It was an appointment with inevitability. How can any self-professed foodie not visit this infamous restaurant at least once in his lifetime? For those of you who don’t know of its infamy, let me […]
Its been a long time since I ate Orh Luak (oyster omelette). Too long. The last time I had a truely great Orh Luak was in Bangkok. Oyster Omelette is a Teochew dish and there is a thriving Teochew community in Bangkok (Swatow, where the Teochews live, is very close to Thailand) When I used […]
Sajis Indian Food: Indian Rojak: Singapore’s very own
With Tag (He has eaten this since school days!) I don’t remember the last time that I was so excited about an Indian Rojak! I guess its been a while since I have come across one that is truly exceptional. When you come across one that has the credentials of Sajis it is hard to […]
Putu Piring 3 for $1 Do you remember the old Singapore Wonderland? I remember the small rollercoaster with the head of a lion in front of it. That coaster, together with Van Kleef aquarium (ie National Theatre) were iconic of Singapore in the 70’s (for a 6 year old boy at least). I can still […]
Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles: Ladies and Gentlemen, We have a Winner!
With smart, PK and ColdStorage Prawn Mee Soup with XL Prawns $8 I think I have found the preeminent prawn mee at last. Up till now, I have found that most of the top rated stalls were just as good as each other and have been having difficulty proclaiming one to be my favourite. That […]
They have opened in their new location in Ang Mo Kio Xiao Long Bao $4.80 for 5 I don’t remember ever eating Xiao Long Bao (XLB) when I was a kid. I think it is something that has taken Singapore by storm in the last decade. The beauty of the XLB is the spoonful of […]
Now THIS is a real “Holy Grail” experience. If you all have been following my blogs, you would know that the one thing that is on the top of my list of food to eat is Kobe Beef. Granted this is not Kobe Beef but I think that it is as close as I would […]
Geylang (Hamid’s) Briyani Stall: I went back 3 times in a week! Geylang Serai Temp Mkt Part 1 of 5
Once in a long while, you get so enamoured by a certain dish that you just keep going back because you can’t get enough of it. This is precisely what happened to me when I first tasted Hamid’s Briyani last week. This recommendation came from a comment from one of the numerous “Anonymous” readers of […]
Aston is really like Dexter in his Laboratory. He is always trying to experiment with different types of beef just for the fun of it. (I think he simply enjoys the look of delight when someone tastes something like Wagyu for the very first time) And the best part of it is that the prices […]
Hillstreet Tai Hwa Pork Noodles: Everybody Queue up!
Congrats to Hillstreet Tai Hwa Bak Chor Mee for winning a Michelin Star 2016! This is perhaps one of the most famous Bak Chor Mee in Singapore. The name Tai Hwa is almost synoymous with Bak Chor Mee. Now whenever I meet Teochew Stallowners, our conversation would invariably be in Teochew, and when asked why […]
