Fatman Satay: Iconic Satay since the Satay Club days
I think that there are very few food places that could elicit as many fond memories and nostalgia as the Satay Club at Esplanade. For those of us who can remember eating there, it was the epitomy of the Satay experience in Singapore. And in those days, when you ask around about which Satay stall […]
I last blogged about Famous Islamic back in 2007 when the blog was barely six months old. Since then, they have moved further up North Bridge road, dropped the “Famous” from their name, and the given a much needed makeover. There has been very mixed reactions to this Biryani. Some people, especially those from overseas […]
Rendezvous Restaurant: Childhood memories of Nasi Padang
I have a few childhood memories of food that I recall very distinctly. My first meal at Rendezvous is one of them. It was the first time I ate curry and fell in love with it. Before Rendezvous, I wouldn’t touch curry because I wouldn’t eat spicy food, but it was the Ayam Korma which […]
Nasi Padang River Valley: Less spicy, more sweet, Yummy all round!
This restaurant is closed If you love Nasi Padang, I am sure you would have at least heard of Nasi Padang River Valley. This place is probably one of the most well known places for Nasi Padang in Singapore and it is quite a known fact that one of their regular customers is the Sultan […]
Rumah Makan Minang: Of Padang and Minangkabau Cuisine
We all enjoy Nasi Padang, but how much do we actually know about it? I would be the first to admit that I am guilty of calling any stall that sells rice with Malay style curry dishes Nasi Padang without much thought. But that is not entirely inaccurate as many of the dishes that are […]
Nasi Lemak Kukus: Traditional Steamed Rice and Homemade Burgers!
If you are wondering what the future of Nasi Lemak looks like, then head towards Upper Thomson and you might just catch a glimpse of its evolutionary path in Singapore. I don’t know why it has taken so long for someone to do this, but eating Nasi Lemak in a laid back place with customer’s […]
Istimewa Nasi Padang: Curry is Nice but it’s a Fried Chicken Paradise
My kakis who brought me to this Nasi Padang place couldn’t stop raving about it. They told me that it is among the top three Nasi Padang in Singapore, which is their way of saying that it is really the best in their books but it would be too presumptuous to make such a claim […]
Temasek Indian Rojak: Not one, not Two but three Types of Prawn Fritters!
You like prawn fritters? I think they are one of the bests way to enjoy prawns because the whole prawn if fried so crispy that you eat the whole creature, shell, head, tomally and all. And that is where you get to enjoy the maximum flavour that a single prawn can provide. People go gaga […]
Straits Kitchen: Halal Hawker Buffet in Aircon Comfort
Wok Station If you have been reading my blog for a while, you would probably notice that I seldom blog about buffets. I guess it may be because I am older now and I can’t eat as much as when I was younger. It’s also because buffets are ideologically opposed to my motto of “Never […]
Ayam Merah For those who would like to debate as to whether Hong Kong or Singapore is the real food paradise, I have only two words to say: Nasi Padang. Ok, so you might argue that Nasi Padang is really Indonesian cuisine, but here in Singapore, Nasi Padang just means Malay/Indonesian style dishes that is […]
I remember the days when a Chicken Curry Puff was still 40 cents. (Yes, if you remember then cheaper than that you are older than I am) I used to buy them in this coffeeshop just next to the Emporium in Toa Payoh each time I visited Toa Payoh library. It was something I look […]
Selera Restaurant Curry Puffs: Will the real Rex Curry Puff please stand up?
This stall has shifted You all have heard about the famous Rex Curry Puffs right? You know of course, that there really isn’t a stall called Rex Curry Puffs. Rex was actually the name of a cinema which in its heyday was a name that kids would scream with joy whenever daddy or mummy mentions […]
