Coffee Hut: Aiya what should I eat? Toast, Buns or Baguette?
Crispy Kaya Toast 2 slices $1.70 Ahh, Kopi and Kaya Toast. Singapore’s answer to Devonshire Tea. The ideal afternoon tea for me is crispy kaya toast with a cup of Teh Si (Milk Tea) and best of all the whole meal costs less than a cup of cappuccino at some fancy cafe. The Hainanese invented […]
This Stall is Closed Orange Ciabatta $2.70, Teh Si $1.40 Our good friend Liverpool has opened his brand new Cafe over at Robinson Road. The kakis went down to check out his new joint today right after we ate Ramen at Men Tei which is just across the road. If you are a regular reader […]
Wah Yen Eating House: So shiok how come nobody copy?
I am always puzzled whenever I come across something simple and satisfying which nobody else tries to copy. You know, Singapore is a nation of copy cats. No sooner did Roti Boy become a big success that we see the rest of the Roti family (Mama, Papa, uncle, aunties) all appear across the island. Then […]
Roti Canai Ah Breakfast. Of the three main meals of the day, this is the most special one for me because I seldom have the time to sit down for a nice slow meal. So when I am on holiday, I especially enjoy the luxury of sitting down to a breakfast of bacon, sausages, eggs […]
With DamienSteamed Lohti with Peanut Butter 50 cents per slice Nostalgia is a precious commodity in Singapore. In our fast paced society where “Land is Scarce” most places only have a limited lifespan. So you are not likely to find the old oak tree where grandpa was supposed to meet grandma and run away together. […]
Killiney Kopitiam: A Tale about an Old Hainanese Gentleman
Kopi $1.10 I was told that if you wanted the best cup of Kopi from Killiney Kopitiam, you still had to go back to the original shop at Killiney Road where the coffee is brewed by an old Hainanese gentleman who has been making the Kopi there for the longest time. Now, I have always […]
Good Morning Nanyang Cafe: Freshly Baked Scones and Kopi!
This Stall is Closed It’s been a year since I first met Liverpool and blogged about his Ciabatta and Kaya Toast. How time flies. Ever since our first meeting, we have been tossing around ideas on what else would Singaporeans like to eat with their Kopi and Teh C. If you all have been following […]
With iwatch_ueat and SCS Butter As we were eating the un-cheng Fish Soup, the aroma of coffee wafted through the air and caught the attention of iwatch_ueat who is usually not a coffee drinker. But the aroma of the coffee was so alluring that she decided to order a cup for herself and SCS Butter […]
I really don’t know why Hainanese Food has such an effect on me. I am not sure if it is the nostalgia attached to it since I have so many fond memories of old Hainanese Coffee Houses like Silver Spoon and Cairnhill Steakhouse. Many Hainanese men worked on “Ang Moh” ships where they learnt how […]
With iwatch_ueat and liverpool I never really got used to Lattes and Cappuccinos even though I spent seven years in Australia. We even have one of those expresso machines at home at one stage and went crazy over frothing the milk. But at the end of the day, when the dust settles, out comes the […]

This stall is closed Butter Buns: 2 for $1 There ain’t nothing better than a freshly baked bun straight out from the oven….. except maybe a Hainanese freshly baked bun straight from the oven! The bread culture in Singapore is alive and well and many are cashing in on the market for breads. You can […]
