Its official! Chilli Crab is still Singapore’s National Crab Dish!
At first I really thought that the Chilli Crab had lost its place in the stomach of Singaporeans whose tastebuds might have been swayed towards Salted Egg Crab or Crab Bee Hoon. But lo and behold, our poll of 2077 people showed that Chilli Crabs are still King with 49.6% of the votes followed by […]

So I finally managed to hunt down someone who was trained to hold chopsticks since he was just a toddler to demonstrate the penultimate chopstick holding technique. It cannot get […]
How do you hold your chopsticks? Let us know in the polls!
Nobody taught me to hold my chopsticks when I was a kid You know we all take chopsticks for granted. It is such a part of our Chinese culture that we don’t even bother to teach our kids how to hold their chopsticks. How many of you actually remember your father sitting you down one […]
Well, the polls are in and it seems that only 8.3% of our readers actually love Newton Food centre. So it looks like it is a real tourist trap. Quite a shame really as it used to be a great place to go for a variety of hawker food. Hopefully after this incident, the food […]
