This stall is closed You might be familiar with the term “Food Nazi”. I used it for the first time in the blog in May 2007 in my post about an acrimonious old man selling Cheng Tng in Zion Road Food Centre. I first came across the term “Food Nazi” way back in 1998 when […]
Claypot Rice for three persons RM27 Actually it isn’t too difficult to have lunch in JB. All you need is about 2 hours to get across the causeway, have lunch and get back to Singapore.

Mohd Sultan Rd Cheng Tng: Behave or you don’t eat your Cheng Tng!
The concept of the Food Nazi was popularized by Seinfeld and it is a term I use for food sellers who have such a great following that they can afford to be cantankerous but people are still willing to suffer abuse in order to eat their stuff. Now what is the difference between a Food […]
