700g Live Maine Lobster Noodle $60 This is a Dream come true! I finally managed to persuade a Cze Char Hawker to do a Lobster Noodle for me. And it is not just any Lobster, it’s a Maine Lobster as well. And the best thing is that this large plate of Lobster only costs $60! […]
Hakka Yong Tau Foo: Unique, Innovative, Never Seen Before YTF!
This Stall is Closed! The book of Ecclesiastes tells us that “there is nothing new under the Sun” which is very true. Everything you see which is “new” has been tried before and recycled. Take mosaic tiles for instance. They were in fashion in the 70′s and are now in fashion again. But when you […]
Fancy a bowl of really nice Tau Suan? Head down to the Tampines Round Market and you will find a nice couple selling some of the best traditional desserts. The Tau Suan here is very good. The beans are steamed just nice so that they have some bite but still become powdery when you actually […]

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.

The original owners have since sold the business and the food is no longer the same 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 […]
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 […]
This stall is closed 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 […]
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 […]
