If you are feeling a little down, then a visit to biscuitking might just be what you need to lift your spirits. There was a time on our sunny little island when KFC was only existent in Malaysia and a visit to MacDonald’s was an occasional treat for doing well in the exams. It was […]
Reviewed by Damien The Chocolate Travona Cakes ($28.80/500gm and $56.80/1kg) First established in the far eastern enclave of Changi Village, the proprietors of Chef Icon heeded the calls of their regulars to centralize their operations and moved closer to the CBD. I’m extremely glad they did. Now nestled in a quaint conservation shophouse along Kampong […]
One Egg Soup $3.90 I remember the time I started writing the blog over 3 years ago. One of the restaurants that really got everyone excited was Astons Specialties which had just opened their first restaurant at East Coast Road. Everyone loved the idea of Western food at great value. Since then, quite a few […]

Sembawang Confectionary: Taste of the 80s – The Pandan Chiffon Cake
Pandan Chiffon Cake $4.80 I think the Pandan Chiffon Cake can be one of the litmus tests to see if you are Gen Y or Gen X. If you are a Gen Xer like me, you might remember fondly the days when the cake was extremely popular in the 80’s. If you are Gen Y, […]
Chocolat N Spice: Hotel quality Muffins at Hawker Prices
With liverpool, iwatch_ueat, zanzoo, pk, smart, AlecEe and Kat What’s the difference between a cupcake and a muffin? Like many things in life, it may be hard to define the differences, but when you see a muffin, you know its a muffin. But if you ask me what the real difference is, I’d say a […]

This Stall has moved Once upon a time there were three very different little girls…..who grew up to be three very different women….but they have three things in common…they’re bright…they’re are passionate about God….. and they opened a Restaurant……The Restaurant’s name is Food for Thought.

In my last post on the Tau Sar Piah, I gave a brief history of how the Tau Sar Piah came about. So this blog would not be complete if it does not feature the shop from which this Singaporean Confectionery actually first made its appearance. Yes, it was here that the Tau Sar Piah […]
The good bakers at 611 Tau Sar Piah have changed their brand to “Little Red Shop” and have come up with a great little gift idea for Mother’s day! I guess if you are reading this your Mum would be in that generation where they would actually enjoy Tau Sar Piah! So if you are […]
As our standard of living improves, Singaporeans continue to look for new things to buy with their excess money (Money more than enough – for some). We are not content with just having our tiger beer anymore! No, we want to learn to appreciate freshly brewed beers. We are not content with plain old Magnolia […]
Special Feature: Tau Sar Piah: Singapore’s very own pastry!
Lotus Seed Paste Tau Sar Piah Have you ever noticed that freshly baked Tau Sar Piah from the bakery tastes different from the more traditional Teochew Tau Sar Piahs that you can buy from the Supermarkets?

I have been hooked on Menu Degustation since my delightful experience at Iggy’s last year. The great thing about a Degustation type meal is that you don’t get overly full and yet your tastebuds are contented after the meal.
