Hui Ji Fishball Noodles and Yong Tau Foo: Best bowl of noodles this year!
Damien has been one of my most trusted makan kakis since the early days of the blog. He is one of the few people I know who is a second generation foodie. I believe he was weaned onto pureed Hokkien Mee from Geylang Lor 29 even before he could say the words “Hokkien Mee”. There […]
Fish paste in Pig Skin Roll Our eating adventure on the seafood paradise of Sandakan got off to a great start when our guide, Johnny, brought us to Sim Sim for breakfast. Sim Sim is a settlement which consist of housing that has been built over the sea. The reason for doing this is because […]
This stall is closed One of the good things about retirement is that you get to go around looking for good things to eat without the pressure of exams, loans, bills, kids and other stuff that add stress to your life. Not that I am speaking from personal experience of course, (still a long way […]
Rong Xing Cooked Food Stall: Take a Queue Number and Relak one Corner!
With AlecEE, Kat, iwatch_ueat, pk, smart and zanzoo One sure way of making your stall stand out from the rest is to install a queuing system. We Singaporeans just love a queue. Well, we don’t actually love TO queue, but we love how the queue is such a reassurance that we are not going to […]
Hakka Yong Tau Foo: Unique, Innovative, Never Seen Before YTF!
This Stall is Closed! The book of Ecclesiastes tells us that “there is nothing new under the Sun” which is very true. Everything you see which is “new” has been tried before and recycled. Take mosaic tiles for instance. They were in fashion in the 70’s and are now in fashion again. But when you […]
I usually end up eating Yong Tau Foo when I feel that I want something that is reasonably tasty yet healthy. So the idea of a big bowl of soup with Toufu, vegetables and other stuff that has been blanched in water seems to me a good idea for healthy food. Of course, if you […]
Ampang Yong Tau Foo: Just what makes a Yong Tau Foo “Ampang”?
How is Ampang Yong Tau Foo different from normal Yong Tau Foo? Is it because you don’t get to choose the items you want, or is it the fact that it gets served in a plate rather then in a bowl with noodles or bee hoon? Or is there any real difference in the items? […]
Poy Kee Yong Tau Foo: Shorter Queue, but still quite good. People’s Park Food Centre Part 3 of 3
With iwatch_ueat, smart, damien and liverpool People’s Park Food Centre was really a bit of an anticlimax. The place has so many stalls and is such a bustling hive of activity, but there are so few really die die must try stalls to eat at. Am I missing something? This is right at the heart […]
Goldhill Hakka Yong Tau Foo: At last, a YTF I yearn to eat!
Ever since I started getting serious about food, I have learnt that it pays to try anything that other people recommend even though you may not think you like it. If there are people eating it, then there must be something good about it and its a matter of learning to appreciate it. Take for […]
With our new makanbro, Liverpool1965! Tucked in the People’s Park Complex Food Centre is this stall with the longest queue I have ever seen!! And for something as unexciting (for me) as Yong Tau Foo! How can people get excited over Yong Tau Foo? Everyone gets a standard bowl of Yong Tau Foo with no […]
Ikan Bilis Yong Tau Fu Chinatown Complex Temp Mkt Part 4 of 5
If you want to taste a REAL fish ball, you just have to head down to this stall. Just look at the all the craters on the fishball. It looks almost like the face of the moon! Actually, that large crater at the 5 o’clock position almost reminded me of the Death Star in Star […]
