Fatman Satay: Iconic Satay since the Satay Club days

New Market Teochew Braised Duck: Slurpilicious Porcine Epidermis (Pork Skin)

When I asked Mr Teo, the Muah Chee man who is still making his dish by hand to take part in the Ultimate Hawker Fest, he told me that he will get back to me on it. I hadn’t heard from him after a month, so I thought that he wasn’t too keen to take […]
