There are few places that I blog about twice and even fewer that I give a 4.75/5 rating. These are places where I go back again and again because I simply find the food so addictive that I think about eating it at work, at church, on the bowl, in the bath, when I get […]
Prince Coffee House: Careful, that plate might be older than you!
Coffee Houses were all the rage back in the 70’s. Those were the days when “Western” food simply meant steak with baked beans and potato chips. The good old Coffee House is a term that you seldom hear of nowadays. I think for many Singaporeans of my generation, the term “Coffee House” would conjure up […]
Balmoral Bakery: I found the my Chicken Pie at last!
Chicken Pie $1.30 If I mention the words “Chicken Pie” to you, what image would you have in your mind? I think for guys in my generation, they might just imagine the round domed pies which we used to be able to get in most bakeries thirty years ago. Nowadays, chicken pies come in all […]
I went down to Big Ben’s Pies last month with my son only to find that there were a whole lot of contractors at the shop who told me that the shop had changed owners! My son was devastated because Big Ben’s pies were his favourite. So, I updated on the blog that the shop […]
Shepherd’s Pie $3.90 As I was thinking about what to write about the Shepherd’s pie, a funny thought struck me. – Do Shepherds eat lambs? Presumably, the Shepherd’s pie was so named because it was made by Shepherds and traditionally, they were made with lamb mince. But the thought of a Shepherd actually eating their […]
Oven Marvel (formerly Delicious Muffins): Hotel Quality Homemade Puff Pastry
Chicken Pie $2.80 Everytime I think about Chicken Pies, I am reminded of the ones they used to sell in the neighbourhood bakeries in the seventies and eighties. You know, the ones that were shaped like big muffins with a dome shaped top and made with puff pastry. Man, they were good. But then again […]
This restaurant is closed With Big MOG, ieatfamily and friends Fisherman’s Pie $26++ I think I finally figured out how to make fusion work. You see, the problem with local fusion is that when stuff tastes too much like the local dish, most people would wonder why they would want to pay so much for […]
With ieatjr The meat pie was one of my favourite eats when I was studying in Australia. You can get them at just about every corner eatery that you can find. It’s one of those foods that I often get a craving for, just like Hokkien Mee and Satay. It’s not easy to find a […]
Don Your Personal Pie Club: Chicken Pies and Crab Bee Hoon?? You must be kidding!
With liverpool and iwatch_ueat I have heard people talking about Don’s pies before, but I never really made the effort to go there. So it was fate that brought me here on my Birthday of all days! It so happened that somehow through some miscommunication, the wonderful lunch planned by my friend iwatch_ueat was cancelled […]
Once in a while, one is pleasantly surprised to discover something yummy purely by chance. This happened to me while walking along Joo Chiat yesterday. What caught my eye was this really fluffy and tempting chicken pie. See for yourself! Tempting? Not tempting… very tempting. Even though I was full after lunch, the sight of […]
