Sage: The Restaurant: Anniversary Degustation Menu
January is probably my favourite month. I get to celebrate my birthday (a day in which everyone tries to be extra nice to me) and my wedding anniversary as well. Our anniversary actually extends for 2 weeks in January. That’s because we had 2 wedding ceremonies 2 weeks apart. You are probably wondering why? It’s […]
New Hawa: Ultimate Prata Challenge: Round 2 of 2
This stall does not sell prata anymore! The Prata over at Syed was excellent but it just lacked the taste to make it the Ultimate Prata. By this time, the criteria for obtaining the Ultimate Prata was quite clear. Syed’s one was almost there, but it lacked the taste. So the obvious next step was […]
Syed Restaurant: Ultimate Prata Challenge: Round 1 of 2
The response to my last blog on Thesevi’s Jalan Kayu Prata hit the record for the most number of comments ever! Spurred on by the tremendous response, I set out on a quest to find Singapore’s Ultimate Prata. Now, given that I have already sampled most of the Prata places recommended by our readers, I […]
Teck Kee Wanton Mee: All Egg Noodles!
Why is it so difficult to find a perfect bowl of Wanton Mee? Afterall, Wanton Mee one of our favourite foods. Yet, you always hear people say that the Wanton Mee in Hong Kong is so much better. When I was younger, I did not really appreciate the role the noodles played in the Wanton […]
I have decided to put the FAQs on one page for easy reference! Wonder why I did not do this earlier? 1. What camera do you use? Most of my shots are taken using a Canon 450D SLR with a Canon 60mm f2.8 macro lens. Natural lighting is used most of the time but when […]
Ding Xian Lou: All dishes $4.80! Real or Not?
This place is closed! With smart, damien and iwatch_ueat When Damien told us about this particular restaurant that sells all dishes for $4.80 including stuff like sharks fins soup, lobster, prawns and crabs, the normal Singaporean response would be “Zhing Ar Se Geh?” (Real or Bluff one?) Ha, there must be a catch or some […]
House of Briyani: Nice Rice! Briyani Challenge Round 3 of 3
I am not sure if it is fair to enter this Briyani as a challenger because they don’t actually sell Indian Briyani. They sell Afghan, Iranian and Turkish Dum Briyani instead. At $5.80 per plate it is definitely one of the more expensive Briyanies around. But as you will see, it is a matter of, […]
Famous Islamic Beryani: 90 years and still going! Briyani Challenge Round 2 of 3
Now this is probably the GrandDaddy of Briyanies and definitely one of the oldest eateries that I have blogged. Its been around since 1921 and when you walk into the restaurant, it feels as if you just walked through a time portal. Man, when this place was fashionable, my father wasn’t even an idea yet! […]
Thohirah Restaurant: Briyani Challenge Round 1 of 3
With iwatch_ueat and SuperSatayMan Since my blog on Allaudin’s Briyani, people have been writing in recommending their favourite Briyani’s around Singapore. So I have decided to go on a Briyani Pilgrimage to try to find Singapore’s, dare I say, “Ultimate” Briyani. My first stall is one which I frequent and up till last week, my […]
Thasevi Food: Famous Jalan Kayu Prata!
Ah Prata! One of the reasons I left Australia to come back to Singapore! You can’t beat fresh Roti Prata and a cup of Teh Tarik for breakfast in the morning! Given that Roti Prata is one of my favouritest foods, its amazing that this is the first Roti Prata I am blogging after over […]
Le Papillon: Crouching Tiger (Prawn), Hidden Konbu
Fresh Green Crab Salad with Tomato Fondue, Gazpacho Espuma and Basil Oil Presentation of food is an Artform that is done relatively well by most chefs. I seldom hear of anyone trying to grade the presentation of dishes (though I am quite sure they do). I have to say that presentation must be easier to […]
Penang Delights: Authentic Penang Fare! Geylang East Central Part 6 of 6
With liverpool, smart, iwatch_ueat and tamago The last time I was in Penang was almost 30 years ago and the last time I ate Penang food was around that time too. Oh yes, everyone says that Penang food is so great, but the problem is you can’t get great Penang readily in Singapore (so they […]
