Remember Lavender Food Square? They used to house famous hawker stalls like Kok Kee Wanton Mee, Miow Sin Carrot cake and Albert Street Prawn Mee. The hawker centre, together with the neighbouring Eminent Plaza were demolished in 2014 and in its place now stands ARC 380. The building has been in operation since 2018, but […]
Mention beef noodles and the first stall that comes to mind was the one that used to be at Scotts Picnic food court. The beef noodle there was one of the main reasons for visiting that particular shopping centre. If that memory has evoked a Pavlovian response, then you should quickly wipe off your saliva […]
Beef Laksa $5 The mere mention of Beef Laksa would surely get many a foodie’s antennae buzzing. After all, when was the last time you ate Beef Laksa? Unless you know of Hong Heng, then probably the answer is “Never!”. That being the case, if you are a foodie, then you would want to make […]

Minipot Shabu Shabu sets starting from $15 (All proceeds donated to Operation Smile) I recently complained to a TV producer that she should not continue to make TV shows that glamourise $2 hawker meals. I mean, do we really want to encourage more hawkers to compete just price rather than to focus on quality? With […]
Empress Place Beef Kway Teow: Teochew Beef Kway Teow got no gravy one!
With SCS Butter Did you realise that most of the hawker food that we are familiar with are less than a century old? It’s true! A few of our most famous heritage stalls can trace their roots back to around the early 1900′s. That makes it about 3 or 4 generations from then till now. […]
Kheng Fatt Beef Noodles: Do You Prefer Soup or Dry?
Damien says it is damn shiok. Makansutra nominated them for street hawker masters for 2007 and they have been around since 1978.
