When the NEA recently announced that they will resume building new Hawker Centres, I heard some people remark that there was no use building Hawker Centres if there are no Hawkers to man the stalls. I guess it is natural to assume that most Gen Y Singaporeans would want to have a cushy executive type […]
Balestier Road Hoover Rojak: Finally manage to eat this famous Rojak
Rojak with Century Egg $3 + $1 extra for the egg If you ever have to describe the ingredients that go into rojak to a westerner, I am sure none of them would want to eat it. I mean seriously, does fruit salad dressed with a sauce made from fermented prawns sound delectable? Not only […]
This stall is closed Unlike the Thais and the Vietnamese, we Singaporeans don’t really eat a lot of salads. In fact, the only local salad that we eat is Rojak. There is of course Lou Hei, (raw fish salad) but that is really a festive rather than a regular dish. If there is one dish […]
Penang Food Trial 3: The Iconic Penang Hawker Dishes!
Everyone talks about Penang Laksa. You either love it or hate it. But it is one of those things you have to try when you are in Penang and one of the most famous stalls is the one at Ayer Itam market which is just at the base of the trial to Kek Lok Si […]
With iwatch_ueat and SCS Butter Imagine freshly fried You Char Kway made into rojak! That would be something wouldn’t it? It would be especially special for those of us who really enjoy just You Char Kway rojak without all the other vegetables and fruits. When smart alerted me to this particular stall in Macpherson, I […]
Soon Heng Silver Stream Rojak: Two bucks and they still include cuttlefish!
I find rojak to be the most difficult hawker food to take pictures of. It’s well……it’s rojak. It isn’t colourful and very messy and I always find it difficult to take an appetizing picture. If you look at my rojak photos, I think you would agree that they are pretty hum drum. Anyway this rojak […]
Lau Hong Ser Rojak: The Undisputed Rojak Champion?
With iwatch_ueat and holydrummer PASSION….. One word that separates the good from the great. Passion is what makes this man fry and grind his own peanuts whiles other get theirs from a factory. It makes him insist on using only the best Heh Gor from Penang and making his own chilli. It causes him to […]
Yue Lai Xiang Cuttle Fish KangKong: Grandma’s recipe since 1939: Bedok Corner FC Part 3 of 3
With holydrummer and iwatch_ueat So many people were afraid that I would miss out on this stall! Well, I don’t like to dissappoint people, so here it is! The enterprising Granny of Yue Lai Xiang actually started off selling Jiu Her Eng Chye (Cuttlefish KangKong) before diversifying to Cheng Tng (See previous blog). Stall owner […]
Rojak Geylang Serai: Indian Rojak: Geylang Serai Temp Mkt Supplemental
There has been an outbreak reported at this stall! Please beware. Since then the stall has been closed. Either that or renamed. It is nowhere to be found in the new Geylang Serai market I had initially decided not to blog this stall as I have too many blogs still waiting to be published. But […]
Toa Payoh Rojak, Take a number please! Old Airport Road Food Centre part 3 of 9
This rojak is so popular that it has a numbering system like you would find in a clinic. The reason it takes so long is that they insist on charcoal grilling every You Char Kway before cutting it up and mixing it with the rojak sauce. I really enjoyed the Tau Pok and You Char […]
Kampong Rojak: Yummy You Tiao Rojak – East Coast Lagoon Food Village Part 1 of 7
<br /> This is my personal pick for best rojak so far. It does not have any newspaper writeups or Adrian Pang’s photo anywhere near the shop, but they serve a really mean You Char Kway (Dough Fritters) Rojak. To make a good You Char Kway Rojak, y0u have to grill the You Char Kway […]
