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.

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.

Fatty Cheong’s CharSiew: Power Char Siew! ABC Food Centre Part 2 of 4
Republished with Updated Pics This is my idea of what a great char siew should be like. Thickly cut, tender, marbled and juicy meat with nicely charred and caramelised bits of fat on the outside. When you bite into the char siew, not only should it melt in your mouth, but, at the same time […]
Hoo Kee Rice Dumplings: Great Bak Changs! Amoy Street Food Centre 4 of 5
Don’t play play, OK? (Don’t take it lightly) The sign in front of this shop proclaims that you should call up to reserve your Bak Chang if you want to avoid dissappointment! Phwa, some forummers (tiantianchi) even claim that this store IS the icon for Amoy Street Food Centre! Others (superfinefeline) proclaim it their most […]
