You probably know about kolo mee from Sarawak but have you heard of "kampua" mee (干盘面)? Kampua noodles are specialty of Sibu and is essentially the straight version of kolo mee. Like kolo mee, it is made without the addition of "kee" or alkali so the texture and the flavour of the noodles are quite different from our local mee kia.
There is nothing more satisfying than roti prata and teh tarik for breakfast. To have this at a roadside coffeeshop is the quintessential breakfast for me. Oh, I do love the American breakfast, wanton mee, black carrot cake, kaya toast and nasi lemak for breakfast too, but somehow, roti prata is just extra special. It […]
Seng Huat Bak Chor Mee: Bak Chor Mee round the clock!
Bak Chor Mee (with extra mushrooms) $4 There is no shortage of good Bak Chor Mee stalls in Singapore. It ranks right up there alongside Chicken Rice in terms of popularity and the number of good stalls around. But it is something not many tourists come to Singapore seeking to eat. I can’t really figure […]
Pizza Prata $6 It was bound to happen sooner or later. We already have cheese prata, so it doesn’t really take much more effort to add tomato paste and a few capsicums to turn that into a Pizza Prata. In theory that should work quite well. But I think the problem is that perhaps the […]
Lim Joo Hin Eating House:Do Stars have good Tastebuds?
Whenever you walk into an eatery and see photos of stars adorning the walls, what is your first reaction? Well, I guess mine is the same as many others, which is “Ay this stall is frequented by all these movie stars, must be quite good”. But you know, the stars are just like anyone else. […]
Fong Seng Nasi Lemak: Haven for hungry Uni Students!
This stall is closed. Which NUS Alumni hasn’t been to Fong Seng Nasi Lemak. Some places just have the best location. I am not a NUS Alumni, but I can imagine the scenario. You live in the Hostel and have been mugging for an exam. Suddenly you feel your tummy rumbling. You look up and […]
With smart, Mr.YaKwang and SporeGirl Har Kao $3.20, Steam Prawns $4, Fried Oysters $6, Char Siew Bao $3.20 I just love Dim Sum, Tapas and Degustations. The idea is that you get to titillate your tastebuds as much and as long as possible before it becomes uncomfortable to your stomach. Yes, it is part and […]
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 […]
Outram Park Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh: A Short History Lesson on Bak Kut Teh!
I am just beginning to realise how I have taken for granted so many of the hawker foods that we enjoy in Singapore. When you talk about what food is uniquely Singaporean, most people will say Chilli Crab but have difficulty naming the rest. That’s because we assume that Chinese food or Malay food is […]
Nothing quite like a cup of hot Teh Halia to wash down all that oil after eating stuff like Nasi Lemak and Nasi Briyani. The Tannin in Tea acts as an astringent to wash down the flavours, the fat in the milk binds to capsaicin (the substance in chilli that causes that burning sensation) which […]
With Tag Tag, iwatch_ueat and carnineviand So this is the famous RK House Prata which does not sell any pork since they are a Halal restaurant. Those who don’t know what it is all about can click here. But anyway, I did not want to cause any problems so I ordered my usual “Double Dough […]
