Here's a really shiok prawn mee that has managed to evade many a listicle. I think part of the reason is that they are located in a semi-secluded neighbourhood coffeeshop and so its popularity is largely confined to fans within a certain radius.
Bedok Bak Chor Mee: Bak Chor Mee Soup in the City!
Bedok has its own style of Bak Chor Mee, just like Katong has its own style of Laksa. When you mention “Bedok Bak Chor Mee”, what immediately comes to mind is a bowl of noodle submerged in a robust soup thick with minced pork.
My son James and I had actually embarked on another burger survey before the Circuit Breaker was announced to update our Best Burger list which we wrote in 2016. Half of the burger joints we listed had since been defunct and what has happened in the last four years has been the rise of the […]
If you are a fan of Sin Kee fish soup in Marsiling and have felt that the fish soup tastes a little different the last time you visited, it could be because you didn’t realise that the lady who used to own the stall has already moved to this coffeeshop in Aljunied! Why she would […]
When I first wrote about Gen Shu (Uncle Kun) back in 2009, it really caused quite a stir amongst the internet foodies. Gen Shu had been a Hong Kong masterchef for many years with his last stint before retirement as the Executive chef of Mouth Restaurant. However, he soon got bored staying at home and decided to come out of retirement to open his own hawker stall in Toa Payoh Lor 4.
When we first dined at Restaurant JAG last year, I predicted that Chef Jeremy Gillion’s passion for exotic European herbs and vegetables would surely win him a Michelin Star and indeed, that premonition came to pass later that year! The good news is that even after winning a Michelin Star, prices of their degustation menu […]
There is nothing more satisfying than some eggy noodles covered with a yummy sauce to start the day! That is why this next gen hawker couple gets to their stall at 3am in the morning to start cooking the charsiu and frying the pork lard so it is ready for their customers by 5.30am!
It might be "The End of Char Kway Teow" but other dishes like prawn mee are enjoying a culinary rennaisance! While a lot of hawker dishes are still struggling to break out of the $3-$4 straightjacket, Singaporeans are willing to pay anywhere from $3 to $20 for a bowl of prawn noodles.
Did you know that there are not one, but two famous Hill Street char kway teow stalls? The more well known one is located at Bedok which has been taken over by the son of the original hawker. The other one, which doesn't get as much publicity, is located at Chinatown Complex Food Centre.
In 2010, I published my pandan chiffon cake recipe after months of trials and failures. It's satisfying to know that the effort didn't go to waste as the recipe is still the most popular on the internet. What I didn't realise was the far reaching impact of that recipe until when I met with Mark Ng, the owner of Pure Pandan.
Hokkien Man, Hokkien Mee: Fine Dining Chef turned Hawker
Xavier Neo created quite a stir on social media when he left his job as a fine dining chef to take on the humble Hokkien mee. He created even more of a stir when it became known that he opens for only four hours a day (10am to 2pm) and has often had to turn […]
Food blogs started to really take off in the early 2000′s. In 1999, there were but 23 blogs in existence, by 2006, there were 50 million. In Singapore, there were just a handful of food blogs when I started ieatishootipost in 2006. Nowadays, we have already moved from blogs to other social media platforms with […]
