Mattar Road Seafood: The last stall on my Hawker Legend Trail
When I started my blogging adventure four years ago, there was a list of hawkers which I set myself the target of blogging. These were the Makansutra Hawker Legends. This was the very first list that Makansutra had come up with. Subsequently, they have come up with lists every year, but have called them Streetfood […]

Tung Lok Signatures: Its the season for Hairy Crabs!

Roland Restaurant: History of Chilli Crabs, this is as Singaporean as it gets!
Singapore Chilli Crabs: At Uniquely Singaporean Dish I don’t think anyone disputed that Chilli Crabs is as Singaporean as the Merlion up till about a few weeks ago when the Malaysian Tourism Minister claimed Chilli Crabs as a Malaysian dish that has been highjacked by Singapore. Rather than achieving her goal, I think the Tourism […]
