I first fell in love with KL Hokkien mee when my cousin brought me to eat the dish in Petaling Jaya decades ago. What I like about it is the toothsome texture of the noodles paired with the umami black sauce and the crunch of the crispy pork lard. It really is a combination made […]
Picture this scenario: You have some important guests in town and you want to bring them somewhere to taste some local Chinese cuisine. Your first choice is your favourite zi char place, but you want somewhere a little more clean and comfortable. You could bring them to one of the many Chinese restaurants around, but […]
Dynasty Ipoh Seafood: Fried Porridge Chef finally opens his own place!
It’s been a rocky road for Chef John, our fried porridge maestro. Barely a few months after he opened Royal J’s premium, it was shut down due to some disagreements with his business partner. I have been following John on his stall hopping trip since Dec 2015 when he first left Ipoh to set up shop at Macpherson, then he moved to bigger premises in Lavender before moving to the last location at Bishan. Now he has finally ventured out on his own, so hopefully he will stay put at his present location for some time.
Kong Kee Seafood Restaurant: A taste of Real KL food!
KL Hokkien Mee $10 (Small $5) Having returned from KL recently I posed the question to our facebook fans on whether we could get a decent KL style Hokkien Mee in Singapore and the name Kong Kee came up a few times. So I had to go down and see for myself whether this KL […]
KL Hokkien Mee Everytime I visit Kuala Lumpur (KL), the one dish that I will always look forward to eating is the KL style Hokkien Mee. Most of the time, I end up eating at the old coffeeshop at Petaling Street which was where I had my first Holy Grail experience with KL Hokkien Mee. […]
Singapura Restaurant: Introducing the ieateam members
Cold Crabs $5.50 per 100g Ieatishootipost started as a simple blog about the best Singapore food four years ago. The blog is four years old this month and has surpassed 7 million hits. When I started out, it was just my attempt to eat and take pictures of the best hawker food that Singapore has […]
Cheng Delicacies: Its what’s not on the Board that matters!
Chicken Chop Curry Rice $4.80 I don’t quite agree with the signboard which says that this restaurant serves “Traditional” Hainanese cuisine. To me it was more like Singapore dishes with a Hainanese twist cooked by a typical Hainanese lady. In addition, the dishes have been modified to suit the new generation of Singaporeans. Take for […]
Big Eater Seafood: KL Hokkien Mee with Big Round Noodles!
$4.80 minimum order I have been driving past this newly opened Cze Char which occupies a whole corner coffeeshop right beside Sungei Bedok for several weeks now. I don’t really know how to explain it, but the place has got a romantic kampong charm about it despite the modern decor. The problem is that everytime […]
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. The stall looked like it had been around for awhile and any stall that has a signboard that is handpainted must have something that has been keeping […]
It’s been a few years since I had the KL Hokkien Mee in Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur and I am still thinking about it! It’s just one of those life defining moments for me. The crispy pork lard was so good, the savory flavor literally explodes in your mouth synergizing perfectly with that gravy to […]
