Istimewa Nasi Padang: Curry is Nice but it’s a Fried Chicken Paradise
My kakis who brought me to this Nasi Padang place couldn’t stop raving about it. They told me that it is among the top three Nasi Padang in Singapore, which is their way of saying that it is really the best in their books but it would be too presumptuous to make such a claim […]
Ayam Merah For those who would like to debate as to whether Hong Kong or Singapore is the real food paradise, I have only two words to say: Nasi Padang. Ok, so you might argue that Nasi Padang is really Indonesian cuisine, but here in Singapore, Nasi Padang just means Malay/Indonesian style dishes that is […]
Killiney Curry Puffs: The best Curry Puff is a Fresh Curry Puff!
Epok Epok $1.20 Have you ever wondered how I find all the makan places on the blog? Well, when I first started the blog it was quite easy. Just look for lists of all the best food places that people have posted on the internet. Once that began to dry up, I started our own […]
Chilli Belacan My visit to Cumi Bali has re-ignited my interest in Indonesian cuisine again! Ironically, when I visited Bali last year, the food did not leave that much of an impression on me. Even the world famous Ibu Oka in Ubud did not live up to my expectations. So Indonesian food has been off […]
Nasi Padang Nothing hits the spot quite like a good plate of rice drenched in a coconut laden gravy. And it doesn’t get better than Nasi Padang except, maybe, very good Nasi Padang. Finding Hajjah Mona was qutie easy. Our kakis were just sitting at the newly refurbished Geylang Serai Food Centre and for the […]
Rosraihanna Soto and Satay: At last, a good Satay!
This Stall is closed It’s been a long while since I was really thrilled by a Malay style satay. Just last month, I was in KL and I had the opportunity to try the famous Sate Kajang. I came away feeling that it hardly lived up to its reputation even though the stall sold 40,000 […]
Charlie’s Peranakan Food: Charlie goes beyond Peranakan
This Stall has reopened! Kuah Rawon $15 Charlie’s the kind of chef I like. Straightforward, no nonsense, self confident to the point of being almost smug. Well, I don’t like the smug part but I do respect people who are like bulldozers when it comes to their food. You know, that “Mohd Ali, I am the […]
Rubiah Muslim Food: To get your Sotong Roe, you need to get past the Nazi
With Smart, Sumosumo, Wahcow, Cactuskit, ijeff, chocolate and PK If you enjoy Sotong with roe, you are going to like this post. This is a stall that is frequented by Cactuskit and it has a perpetual queue outside the stall from the time they start selling. Now, I am not a big fan of Sotong, […]
The ieatishootipost East Coast Lagoon Satay Challenge!
One of the things that really frustrates me every time I visit East Coast Lagoon FC is the fact that I never really know which of the 10 Malay style satay stalls is really the best. I always end up ordering randomly from whoever does the best touting that night. Sure, there is Haron 30 […]
Labrador Villa Food Centre: Food Centres should have World Heritage Status!
With smart and liverpool Lontong $2.50 At the rate the NEA are going with the upgrading of food centres, we will soon have nothing good left to eat! Just take the venerable Tiong Bahru Market for example. Tiong Bahru used to stand tall and proud as the place to eat. Now it seems like it […]
With fashionfoodie, bashful hunter, carnineviand, khim and friends The good people from Noor Jannah’s who were responsible for the Prata Bomb, have just moved to their new location at Jalan Masjid. As you would recall in the previous post, the neighbours were complaining about the smoke from the BBQ pit and as a result they […]
This stall is closed My wife insists that I need to blog this particular lontong because it is in her words “to die for”. Yeah, she’s been going on about this lontong for months. She has it for breakfast almost every Saturday without fail just before doing her weekly grocery shopping. She even brought mum […]
