I am sure everyone has significant milestones in our own gastronomic journey. One of mine was my “baptism of fire” into Indian cuisine at the age of 13! Growing up in a Chinese family who seldom eat spicy food, I was caught unawares when my new secondary one friend invited me to his home for […]
This famously popular briyani stall is one of the most reclusive as well. Most people refer to it as the briyani in the coffeeshop next to Golden Mile Food Centre.

Subhaini Family Stall: Sup Kambing Sup Kambing! I found you at last!
I have blogged hundreds of hawker stalls in the last five years and you’d think that I would have covered a lot of ground by now. In the first few years, I has churning out one blog post daily. Now I am averaging around 3 posts a week. But you know what? There are still […]
Appam $2.50 I was watching Foodage and reminicing about the good old days when I saw them featuring Putu Mayam! That got me all excited ‘cos its the kind of food my mom used to buy home from the market when we were kids. I was that in the good old days, Putu Mayam was […]
