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. Like every other new pastry fad that hit Singapore, this stall is attracting long queues of people […]
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. You know, the ones that were shaped like big muffins with a dome shaped top and made with puff pastry. Man, they were good. But then again […]
With AmagadaUni Shot $12 There is little doubt that Japanese food is still the current favourite foreign cuisine amongst Singaporeans and the trend doesn’t look like it is going to wane anytime soon. You get a sense of this just by observing the number of new Japanese eateries that are appearing everywhere. But we also […]
Hock Lam Beef Kway Teow: Let’s Raise the Bar on Beef Kway Teow!
Minipot Shabu Shabu sets starting from $15 (All proceeds donated to Operation Smile) I recently complained to a TV producer that she should not continue to make TV shows that glamourise $2 hawker meals. I mean, do we really want to encourage more hawkers to compete just price rather than to focus on quality? With […]
With Damien Fish and Chips $16 (6 pieces) It always fascinates me when I think about how far apart the cuisines of France and Britain are. One one side you have Foie Gras, Truffles and Pressed Duck and on the other side of the channel the national dish is Fish n Chips and Meat Pies. […]
With Damien I remember some years back, MM Lee once mentioned that Singapore may merge with Malaysia in the future. This created such an uproar among the Malaysians, who simply don’t see any reason why they would want Singapore back with Malaysia. Culturally, Singapore and Malaysia are very close and it used to be that […]
Chocolat N Spice: Hotel quality Muffins at Hawker Prices
With liverpool, iwatch_ueat, zanzoo, pk, smart, AlecEe and Kat What’s the difference between a cupcake and a muffin? Like many things in life, it may be hard to define the differences, but when you see a muffin, you know its a muffin. But if you ask me what the real difference is, I’d say a […]

Kok Sen Restaurant: Just how do you define Cze Char?
With Damien, iwatch_ueat, smart, liverpool and Tag Big Prawn Bee Hoon Soup $11.50 What’s the difference between a Cze Char and a Restaurant? Is it just because a Restaurant has air-con and a Cze Char does not? Or is it that the dishes are different? Perhaps it is the prices or service that is different? […]
With iwatch_ueat and liverpool I never really got used to Lattes and Cappuccinos even though I spent seven years in Australia. We even have one of those expresso machines at home at one stage and went crazy over frothing the milk. But at the end of the day, when the dust settles, out comes the […]
Mr Teh Tarik: I wonder what the tarik does to the tea?
I wonder if Tariking the Teh actually makes a difference to the taste itself. Apart from cooling it down, and making the foam on top, does the extra air in the tea actually change its taste? Has anyone tried comparing a cup of tea before and after the Tarik? Do let us know. Mr Teh […]
