Leslie and Lisa uncover hidden gems in Food Republic!
Mention “Food Republic” and most people would probably think about stalwarts like Sergeant Hainanese Chicken Rice or Li Xin Teochew Fishball Noodles. However, as I embarked on this Food Republic Food Trail with Lisa as part of their celebrations for winning “Brand of the Year” in the 2020-2021 World Branding Awards, I begin to realize […]
There has been a proliferation of PRC food stalls over the past few years. Just walk along People’s Park Centre and you will be able to see the changing landscape of the hawker centre there. However, I haven’t written about any of them because I find the food a little too “authentic” for me. PRC […]
With all the Chinese New Year feasting, I am sure everyone is looking for something that would help to ease the conscience of having binged on high fat, high salt, high sugar foods like Bak Kwa and pineapple tarts, right? Well, here’s one place that I can recommend for healthy, yet tasty food — something […]
This stall has relocated I first wrote about Northern Thai back in Dec 2006. At the time, I had just started blogging and I featured this particular stall in Jalan Besar as it had been a favourite of mine ever since SCS Butter brought me there in 2004. I had just returned from living in […]
OK, so you have been pigging out a little too much lately and feel a little bloated and a lot guilty. So you are looking for something a little bit more healthy in order to satisfy your conscience. Perhaps you even have to face your cardiologist (or your wife, mother or whoever) soon, and dread […]
Century Egg with Lime Sherbet – $8.80 per serving (serves 4) Our session started with the Century egg with lemon sorbet which is quite a fancy mouthful of chopped century eggs with Japanese preserved ginger and lemon sorbet. It was nice and very unique but I don’t think that it tasted that much better than […]
With damien Mushroom and Cheese Crepe $4.50 It is good that the younger generation of “hawkers” are venturing out into more international cuisines. It means that we get to eat stuff that we would otherwise find in fancy restaurants at cheaper prices. Crepes are by no means new to Singapore. They had their day years […]
Kay Lee Roast Meat Joint: Move over Colonel Sanders, I also got 11 Herbs and Spices!
The original owners have since sold the business and the food is no longer the same I am beginning to realize the only common thing about Char Siew is the fact that it is long strips of marinated meat! No, some people don’t even BBQ their Char Siew and it still passes off as Char […]
Soon Huat Pig’s Organ Soup: Serangoon Way Food Centre
With Tag Tag, iwatch_ueat and carnineviand This is one for the fans of Ter Huang Kiam Chye (lit. Pig innards with Salted Veg). I am no big fan of this dish myself. Just like first year Med School, Anatomy was not my most favourite subject. Ok, dissecting was fun, but memorising where all the nerves […]
House of Steamed Soup & Rice: Steamed Soup Served with a Smile
This stall is closed Some foods you eat because it is shiok. Some foods you eat to cleanse your system because the night before you ate something which was shiok. Whenever I need to eat something guilt free, I think of steamed soup and plain rice. Yep, as I get older, plain white rice seems […]
With smart, iwatch_ueat and liverpool Now this is an excellent and rather unexpected discovery! Makanuncle smart was wondering around this area when he spied a soup shop which “Bakes” its soup in a Traditional Chinese Soup Urn. This is the first time I have come across this style of cooking soup. Most of the soups […]
