Hokkien Man, Hokkien Mee: Fine Dining Chef turned Hawker
Xavier Neo created quite a stir on social media when he left his job as a fine dining chef to take on the humble Hokkien mee. He created even more of a stir when it became known that he opens for only four hours a day (10am to 2pm) and has often had to turn […]
Toa Payoh Fried Kway Teow: The One that used to be at the Bus Interchange!
This stall is closed This one is for those fans of the Char Kway Teow that used to be at Toa Payoh Central Bus Interchange! Yes, they have since moved to Toa Payoh Lor 7 after they demolished the food centre! I grew up in Toa Payoh and visiting the library was a weekly affair […]

Dove Desserts: Heavenly Chendol, Traditional Cheng Tng
With smart, liverpool, bashfulhunter, iwatch_ueat, damien and PowerAunty I have never considered this question before until now. Maybe you haven’t too. This is the question: How should Chendol be taken? With shaved ice like the one in the picture or as a soup-drink with crushed ice, like the ones they serve by the road side […]
Poh Piah is like the snack food that you buy to accompany your main meal right? I mean, does anyone here simply go out there and eat Poh Piah and that’s it? Usually, we would order a few Poh Piahs as a common “share-share” type of dish. I sometimes think about hawker dishes along the […]
