Uncle Gen’s Hong Kong Cuisine: The latest stall to make it to the Really Must Try list!
Hong Kong Steamed Rice with Chicken and Salted Fish $3.30 As the number of blog posts approaches the one thousand mark, it amazes me that there are still so many new places that are still waiting to be discovered. Indeed, Singapore might be a tiny red dot, but if the world atlas were drawn according […]
Some people like Bill Gates want to rule the world. Others like Phua Chu Kang only want to rule Singapore and perhaps JB and Batam. But for Mr Johnny Teo, all he wants is to rule Toa Payoh. With three stalls strategically placed around Toa Payoh, no Toa Payohrees need to worry about not getting […]
Tian Tian Lai Hokkien Mee: I would if you were opened daily!
Our recent polls showed that the Hokkiens have the least proportion of foodies as compared with the other dialects groups. Of course this does not mean that they don’t have a few lip smackingly shiok dishes in their culture. One of the best dishes in the world that the Hokkiens have given us is the […]
With smart and bashful hunter It is increasingly hard to find people making their own Ngor Hiang nowadays. With the advent of the commercially available Ngor Hiang, most stallowners have opted to be Ngor Hiang Traders rather than Ngor Hiang Chefs. So when I find passionate hawkers who still endeavor to make their own Ngor […]
With smart and bashful hunter Poh Piah is just great. It’s healthy (relatively) and tasty and it is a really good side dish with whatever you are ordering. If you think about it, it is just the Chinese version of the Donar Kebab or the Burrito and the way I see it, it should originally […]
Soon Heng Silver Stream Rojak: Two bucks and they still include cuttlefish!
I find rojak to be the most difficult hawker food to take pictures of. It’s well……it’s rojak. It isn’t colourful and very messy and I always find it difficult to take an appetizing picture. If you look at my rojak photos, I think you would agree that they are pretty hum drum. Anyway this rojak […]
Gideon 300: Freshly Baked Traditional Hainanese Buns
This stall is closed Butter Buns: 2 for $1 There ain’t nothing better than a freshly baked bun straight out from the oven….. except maybe a Hainanese freshly baked bun straight from the oven! The bread culture in Singapore is alive and well and many are cashing in on the market for breads. You can […]
Fong Kee Roast Duck: The Duck Sauce was outstanding
So far the best Roast Duck I had was the one in Sydney. Ok, ok, I know that the best Roast Duck is in Hong Kong, but I never had the chance to eat at the famous Roast Goose place in Hong Kong. During the early 90’s, Hong Kongers fled Hong Kong for the West […]
This stall is closed With khim, SCSbutter, HappiMummi and amagada I am starting on my quest to find the ultimate Hor Fun in Singapore! For me, the ultimate Hor Fun must satisfy 2 criteria. First, the Kway Teow has got to be slightly charred and be so tasty that you can eat it on its […]
It was just after the Chinese New Year and I was looking for stuff to eat around Toa Payoh and everything was still closed. Then I remembered that the famous Mellben Crab in AMK had recently opened a branch here in Toa Payoh! So after being dissapointed at Lor 4 and Lor 7, I found […]
