BBQ Live Prawns $8.50 for four The first time I came across the name “Le Chasseur”, I thought it was a French restaurant. Then when I found out that it was serving local cuisine, I thought it was some French way of saying “The Char Siew”. Then I found myself standing right in front of […]
OTTO Ristorante: They say the Pastas here are great!
Hokkaido scallop carpaccio with saffron vinaigrette and black Taggia olives powder $28 My last Italian meal at another well known Italian restaurant was quite a disaster.

Chilli Belacan My visit to Cumi Bali has re-ignited my interest in Indonesian cuisine again! Ironically, when I visited Bali last year, the food did not leave that much of an impression on me. Even the world famous Ibu Oka in Ubud did not live up to my expectations. So Indonesian food has been off […]
I am sure you have heard of the legendary hawker street called Hock Lam Street right? Ever wondered where it was originally? Well, Hock Lam street was where Funan Digitalife Mall is standing now. I guess they did not want to call the new shopping centre Hock Lam Centre, so they converted the Hokkien name […]
New Rong Ge Liang Hong Kong Roast: Cheap and Good, The Singapore Dream
Roast Duck $15 for half I think it is unfortunate that a lot of eateries fail to appreciate how much Singaporeans value the value of value. Kia Su (Afraid to lose out) is one of the key cultural pillars of our society and a major aspect of being Kia Su is the compulsion to make […]
Eleven Fingers Curry Rice: Extra Thumb, Extra Taste!
Braised Pork If I were to open an Economical Rice Stall, I would open one that sells Hainanese Curry Rice. The reason is simple. With Hainanese Curry Rice, you only really need six dishes.

Barcook Bakery: Ooooh so soft and silky, but don’t fight ok?
Cheese and Raisin Bread $1.30 ea In case you still haven’t heard, there’s this place at Hong Lim Centre that sells really soft and irresistable bread which sells out everytime a new tray comes out of the oven.

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.
