Yakiniku Daidomon: Beef! Beef! Beef!
This restaurant is closed! These pictures are going to elicit 2 extreme responses. The first would be “Wah Lao! Look at all that FAT!” The second is “Wah Lao! LOOK at all that fat!” One group would not go near it, the other would be drawn to it like a Sotong (Squid) to a Fluorecent […]
Don Your Personal Pie Club: Chicken Pies and Crab Bee Hoon?? You must be kidding!
With liverpool and iwatch_ueat I have heard people talking about Don’s pies before, but I never really made the effort to go there. So it was fate that brought me here on my Birthday of all days! It so happened that somehow through some miscommunication, the wonderful lunch planned by my friend iwatch_ueat was cancelled […]
Hock Lam Street Beef Kway Teow: Traditional Teochew Recipe since 1911
With liverpool and iwatch_ueat My Beef Kway Teow list would be incomplete without the inclusion of this famous stall which has been around for almost a century. Hock Lam Street is famous not only for its traditional Teochew Beef Kway Teow recipe, lately it has also become well known for having the most agreeable looking […]
Ju Shin Jung East: Korean Charcoal BBQ:
I have been wanting to visit Ju Shin Jung for the longest time since my Korean friends all highly recommend it. So I was elated when they opened a branch over at the old Tennis Centre along East Coast Road. The first impression was just how massive the place was! It must have been at […]
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! […]
