Good Eats and Hidden Gems: Gourmet East Kitchen Food Trail
Today we take you on a most interesting industrial estate food trail. Rather than visiting the usual hawker stalls we take you to Gourmet East Kitchen in Bedok which houses many central kitchens which manufacture food for hotels and other eateries. I’ll bet many of you would have never even thought of visiting a place […]
Dingtele: Shanghai Sheng Jian Bao and other dim sum!
There are a couple of dumplings which are very good at Dingtele. I Their shen jian bao were very good, though I would have liked the skin to be just a tad sweeter. Lewis tells me that they use fresh Indonesian pork and it's flavourful and soupy without any off-putting porky stench. You have to be careful when eating the bao because they literally burst when you bite into them. I had soup all over my hands and my pants!
We are all very familiar with the basic dim sum items like har gao, siew mai and char siu bao, but how many of us really know what to look for in a good har gao or what makes one siew mai better than the next? We sat down with Hua Ting's Chef Lap Fai to discuss these questions!
Have you ever tasted a siew mai or har gow that is so good that it just blows all the others out of the steaming basket? I haven’t. In my experience, there is good siew mai and there is bad siew mai. There is good and very good siew mai, but I have never, ever […]
Majestic Restaurant: Chef Yong’s new Flagship Restaurant
Majestic Restaurant: Chef Yong’s new Flagship Restaurant – ieatishootipost I just realized that this will be the third time I am writing about Chef Yong Bin Ngen! The first was my review of the now defunct The Majestic, back in 2007. The next story was about his new coffee crabs at Majestic Bay Seafood in […]
Master Tang: Beef Brisket and Chicken Feet Heaven!
I love ngau lum! (Cantonese style stewed beef brisket) It is one of those things that I love but never to eat much of when I was a kid. (or even now!) It was such a treat whenever mum brings back ngau lum meen for lunch after doing her marketing!
This restaurant has relocated. Address updated Superbowl Jurong is one of those places like Big Splash which anyone living in the 70′s must have been before but probably haven’t been back in the last 30 years! Unless you are living or working around the area, I’d bet you have no reason to visit Superbowl Jurong. […]
Hong Kong Mong Kok Tim Sum: Restaurant quality Dim Sum at hawker prices
Hong Kong Mong Kok Tim Sum has been around for a number of years and has built up quite a reputation for itself. I have tried their dim sum sometime ago but at that time I didn't feel compelled to write about them. But I managed to chance upon them again and this time I was quite surprised at just how good their dim sum is especially when you consider that they are all priced at $2.30 nett!
Xiao Chen Handmade Bao Dian: Cheap Coffeeshop Dim Sum
It’s incredible how expensive dim sum is nowadays. When I started the writing about food 10 years ago, a basket of siew mai at a typical dim sum restaurant was around $3.50. Nowadays it is around $5.50 and even $6 in some places! It is no wonder that over the last 10 years we are […]
This post is for everyone who has ever been to Tim Ho Wan but decided to go eat at the restaurant next door instead because of the unbelievably long queue. I know how it feels because I was one of them. After my friend waited for 40 minutes in the queue, we gave up and […]
