Emmanuel Peranakan Cuisine: Homecooking away from home
What a lot of us need is to be able to eat a home cooked meal even when we are unable to cook at home.
When I was growing up, dinner was always rice with meat, veggies and soup. It is a nice balanced meal and should be the staple for most Chinese families. Unfortunately, with most people having to eat out, most end up eating a plate of char kway teow or a bowl of noodles instead. These are great one bowl dishes but not very nutritionally balanced.
Hilmi Sarabat Stall: Ah The President’s Teh Tarik… At last!
Do you still remember my last post on our President’s Teh Tarik? Well, I thought I would never have a chance to drink of the Presidential Brew since the “Michael Bolton” and I both share the same working shifts. But yesterday was my lucky day! I happened to be down at Marine Parade Food Centre […]
Hass Bawa: Not too Spicy, not too Sweet, Just Nice
I admit that I haven’t really had a Mee Goreng that I can remember being really shiok. Then again I am not really a Mee Goreng fan, so I don’t go around specifically looking for Mee Goreng like I do Hokkien Mee. However, when I did my Marine Parade series the last time, Damien chided […]
To be very honest, this is the ugliest plate of Char Kway Teow I have ever laid eyes on. But it is also the most unique Char Kway Teow I have ever come across. It is almost like a Hor Fun since the Kway Teow still white in colour and it is swimming in the […]
Want to drink the Presidential Teh Tarik? Hop down to Marine Parade Food Centre and look for this Sarabat store and you too can feel like the President…..at least for 10 minutes. Of course the President does not come down to the stall himself to drink the Teh Tarik. That would mean a lot of […]
Katong Chicken Curry Puff: Stuff I ate when I was a kid!

Ah Liang Fried Hokkien Mee: Does Tar Pauing make the HKM tastier?
This stall is closed Do you think that wrapping the HKM in Opeh leaf improves the taste of the HKM? Or does the image of the Opeh leaf somehow invoke some nostalgia and affect the taste? Some vendors tell me that they feel the Opeh leaf does nothing to the taste of the noodles whiles […]
Xin Long Cooked Food: The Alternative to a Homecooked Meal!
With smart, iwatch_ueat and carnineviand I always find it difficult to write about “Economic Rice” because there is always so many dishes in each stall and there is no standard items that you can compare “apples with apples”. So what I have done is to ask the Lao Ban Niang to give me a plate […]
With smart, carnineviand and iwatch_ueat According to the stallowner, Mr Wong, this is the one and only Seremban Beef Kway Teow in Singapore. That’s according to him, but as far as we know this is certainly a very unique tasting beef kway teow. The dry version is sweeter than the local version. Sweet black sauce […]
