545 Whampoa Prawn Noodles: Traditional 3rd Gen Prawn Noodles!
It is said that our little island is progressing so fast that a lot of people are having difficulty finding things to link them back to the past. That old classroom where you started Primary 1, the bus stop where you used to hop on to get to school or the shopping centre with that […]
Simple Delites: Simple but Delightfully Delicious!
I haven’t really written much about Nonya/Malay kuehs. I think the reason is because when my family needs a Nonya Kueh fix, we just buy it from Bengawan Solo. They are very good and so easily available that I haven’t really thought about alternative places to buy my kuehs. But recently, my friend, Thomas, of […]

Ever heard of Chi Kak Kueh? Neither have I, and I dare to pride myself as Teochew Ah Bah! (Half past six one only) I was just walking around Tekka Market Food Centre looking for stalls with Adrian Pang’s or Seethoh’s face on them. Amazingly, for such an established Food Centre, there were very few […]
After my last blog on Sri Vijaya’s Thosai, the MakanGurus at the forum suggested that I also try Sri Kamala Vilas which served, in their opinion, even better Thosais plus they also served a pretty mean Chicken Masala.
