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 […]

Vegetarian Poh Piah: Poh Piah with a Serious Crunch! Geylang East Central Part 5 of 6
With smart, liverpool, iwatch_ueat and tamago Finding a Vegetarian Poh Piah is not easy. Finding a Vegetarian Poh Piah which is also good to eat is even harder. That is why this Poh Piah is being featured! The skin is handmade, so it is nice and chewy. But it is what lurks inside that makes […]

This stall is no longer in operation With iwatch_ueat, tamago, smart and liverpool Now this is an interesting twist to the good old Hokkien Mee! What do you think Hokkien Mee would taste like if you add some La La (Clams) to it? I remembered having the KL style Hokkien Mee with La La at […]
Ng Soon Kee Fish and Duck Porridge: Shiokafishsoup!: Geylang East Central Part 3 of 6
When you look at the mound of freshly sliced fish at this stall, you immediately know that you are dealing with a man who cares about fresh ingredients. Especially with the monsoon rains causing a shortage in supply of fresh fish, it takes a real passionate Teochew Ah Hia (Typical Teochew Man) to bid top […]
