Crystal Jade Dining In: Best Dim Sum since my Hong Kong Trip
Crispy Roasted Pork Belly $9 What is your favourite part of the pig? Well, mine are pork cheeks for braising, pork chops for Tonkatsu, pork ribs for Bak Kut Teh and Pork Belly for anything.

Century Egg with Lime Sherbet – $8.80 per serving (serves 4) Our session started with the Century egg with lemon sorbet which is quite a fancy mouthful of chopped century eggs with Japanese preserved ginger and lemon sorbet. It was nice and very unique but I don’t think that it tasted that much better than […]

Si Chuan Tea House: Tian Fu Tea House High Tea Video Log

Eng Cheong Pau: Improving the standard of Kopitiam Paus
This Stall is closed There was a period of time when the standard of our Paus really went downhill. A lot of the commercially available paus that are still being sold in our coffeeshops are very much still at the bottom of the hill, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. There […]

Jacky Chan’s Cafe: Kung Fu Cappuccinno and Dim Sum!
I still remember my very first Jacky Chan movie. It was none other than “Drunken Monkey”, the good olde Kung Fu movie back in 1978 with a predictable storyline which only serves as a backdrop for the Kung Fu actors to display their Kung Fu skills. You know the story…….. young disciple’s master gets killed […]
Kam Boat: Crab Roe Porridge for Those who need a Cholesterol Boost!
The Dim Sum is perfect for a 3 generation family lunch. You will always find something that the kids will eat. My son in particular used to love only Har Kow Skin. Then he moved on to Char Siew Cheong and then Char Siew Pao. So it is not only a good place for lunch, […]
I walked pass this stall several times before deciding to actually order something from them. The thing that attracted me to the stall was the sense of nostalgia.

Tanjong Rhu Pao: Its Small, Its Expensive, But I still need to buy it!
With liverpool, iwatch_ueat and introducing Leon our latest makankaki There is only one Pau in Singapore that has the audacity to call a small pau a Big Pau and charge you dollar for it. Yet there is a perpetual queue outside the stall around the clock. I have looked high and low for a cheaper […]
With liverpool, smart, yummydummies, tamago, iwatch_ueat and PK Ignorance is bliss. It really is!
