Simon Road Oyster Omelette: Earth Shatteringly Crispy Oh Luak!
The truth of the matter is that I eat Oyster Omelette only once or twice a year. It is something of a guilty pleasure and I don’t like to feel guilty too often. This time round I had a good excuse to eat Orh Luak because I wanted to take a new photo for my […]
The latest culinary trend in town and indeed around the world is undoubtedly Spanish cuisine. In the last few years, its refreshing to see many Spanish eateries opening up here in a market saturated with Italian eateries. I have yet to really venture into Spanish cuisine but with this post, it is now official that […]
There are two things about Skirt that I am very excited about. Firstly, they are the first steak house in Singapore who are aging their own beef and secondly, they are one of the few to use an Argentinian Parilla to grill their meat! In a market where the competition for the patronage of serious […]
I have been wanting to write a proper Pizza recipe post ever since I started experimenting with pizzas three years ago but never really got round to it. This time round, I managed to finally get it done. The motivation came in the form of my new SMEG Pizza Oven which made it possible for […]
Geylang Lor 29 Hokkien Mee and Hill Street Char Kway Teow at the Ultimate Hawker Fest!
As you all know, Bedok Blk 16 market has been closed for close to a year and so that means that Hillstreet Char Kway Teow has been closed as well. So this year I called Mr Ng and asked if he had moved to a temporary stall somewhere. He told me that he decided to […]
Making Popiah in Joo Chiat since 1938 I have to let you know about my friends Zita and Vicky at Kway Guan Huat Poh Piah. When I approached them 3 months ago to help me with the Ultimate Hawker Fest, they agreed without hesitation because they knew that it was a charity fundraiser and they […]

The Socca: Spicy tomato coulis, roasted vegetables, fresh herb salad and chorizo I have got three $100 vouchers to dine at Shangri-la Hotel’s new Waterfall Cafe to give away. This brand new cafe features healthy Mediterranean style food in a very cosy poolside cafe. They use mainly produce here that has been specially sourced to […]
Pek Sin Choon Tea Merchants: Do you know your Bak Kut Teh Teas?
The history of Singapore’s Bak Kut Teh can be traced all the way back to the period before World War II. Actually, its origins could possibly pre-date the 20th century but I have thus far not been able to find concrete evidence for this. However, the oral history of Bak Kut Teh is still prevalent […]
Rong Cheng Bak Kut Teh: Every day is a Good Day for Bak Kut Teh!
If I were to pick a dish to represent Singapore, my choice would be Bak Kut Teh. It might seem strange that I should choose Bak Kut Teh over hot favourites like Chicken Rice and Chilli Crabs but after pondering upon this question for the last few years, I have come to the conclusion that […]
Kong Lee Hup Kee Trading: Excuse me, are you Mr Mao Shan Wang?
When I was a kid, durian season was very special and we would look forward to it with much anticipation. Nowadays, it feels as if you can get durians throughout the year. That is made possible by the lengthening of the Malaysian durian season as well as the importation of durians from other countries such […]
Our Singapore Pledge: Share your thoughts at Pledge.sg
A friend of mine challenged me to take part in the photo competition at pledge.sg. So since I wanted to do something a little different, I made this particular cinemagraph. But alas, when I tried to submit it, it got rejected because they only accept jpg files!! Goes to show that you need to read […]
