The First Noel: A Magnificent Gift in Paltry Wrapping!
Have you ever gotten a gift so beautifully wrapped that you got really excited only to be dissappointed when you finally discover what it really is? Given a choice I am sure most of us would choose a great gift with paltry wrapping rather then the other way around. As I watched “The Nativity Story” […]
Teck Kee Hot and Cold Dessert: Lotsa You Tiao Please!
With smart, liverpool1965, iwatch_ueat and tamago The one thing that I always complain when I eat Tau Suan is the stinginess of the stallowners when it comes to adding the You Tiao.

Ibrahim Mee Stall: Roti John that’s soft on the inside, crispy on the outside
With smart, liverpool1965, tamago and iwatch_ueat Forget what the stall sign says about this being a mee stall. Go straight for the Roti John and you will, as William Hung said, have no regrets! The Roti John is the best one I have had for years. The secret is in the use of a really […]
Noo Cheng Adam Road Prawn Noodle: Its the Chilli that makes it shiok!
With liverpool1965, tamago, iwatch_ueat and smart This is another prawn mee frequently talked about by forummers.

Zi Yean Restaurant: New Favourites, Old Favourites
With mien, liverpool1965, smart, iwatch_ueat and tamago Zi Yean has been one of my favourite Cze Char/Restaurants since the days when they were still at Stirling Road.

Northen Thai: Tom Yum Soup with a Twist!
I have been eating at this stall for 2 years and I am still amazed why they have not gotten a newspaper writeup or have any mediacorp stars’ face pasted on the stallfront yet!! Time and time again, when I bring my friends here, the response has always been a resounding SHIOK!! This time round, […]
786 (Azmi Restaurant): Same food, same coffeeshop since 1944
With mien, smart, accidental foodie, iwatch_ueat, fertilefoodie For those who want a taste of a blast from the past, head down to the junction of Norris and Serangoon road and you will find an “ancient” coffeeshop run by a whole bunch of Indian Muslims who look like they’ve been there since 1944! The shop’s specialty […]
