Ah Loon & Ah Teck Durian Stall: Let’s give this D88 a name!
D88 I have made it my goal to document as many cultivars of durian as possible so that they can all be nicely cataloged on this blog. So with around a week left before this durian season ends, I am posting this to remind you that you only have around one week left to get […]
It is human nature to side with the underdog. So when it comes to chicken rice, not many people would go with the big players like Boon Tong Kee, citing that they are too commercial, lacks the personal touch etc etc. With over 20 chicken rice stalls already blogged, this site would really not be […]
The Ieat Durian Degustation II: Ah Loon and Ah Teck’s Boutique Durian Stall
The pictures say it all. When it comes to Durians, we Singaporeans will throw any manner of decorum to the wind. It is one of the few times that you can actually eat with your hands, get durian all over your face, and talk with your mouth full without mom telling you off. This is […]

Delicious Boneless Chicken Rice: Best Value for Money Chicken Rice
With ieatjr Half Chicken $13 Holydrummer has been telling me about this chicken rice since the early days of the blog but I never really got down to Katong Centre to try it. However, lately I have been going through a chicken rice phase, (you all go through phases too right?) and I really felt […]

Paradize on Earth: I found Paradize…and it’s a Steamboat!
With SCS Butter, Happi Mummi and ieatFamily I never used to like Steamboats. To me, dunking pieces of raw meat into chicken broth was not as exciting as a good plate of fragrant Hokkien Mee. I mean, all the boiled pieces of meat tasted the same. It’s not shiok like a good bowl of laksa, […]

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? […]
328 Katong Laksa: Hits you right there! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
As you know, nothing quite hits that spot like a good bowl of laksa. In fact, if there is a Umami scale, Laksa should rank 9/10 while hospital porridge specially ordered for a hypertensive, diabetic, heart bypass patient would rank 1/10. And when it comes to Peranakan style or more specifically “Katong Laksa” style Laksa, […]
With PowerAunty, ArtyMary and iwatch_ueat The Round $9.50 I have been learning to appreciate various types of sausages since I blogged about Butcher House and I thought that it would be great if these gourmet sausages could be available perfectly grilled and ready to eat. Luckily, I know a guy by the name of Aston […]
