Poh Piah – Can we do better?
Poh Piah is like the ultimate side dish for most of us. Almost everytime I visit a FC, I get tempted to buy just that one or two Poh Piah to put on the table. This montage is for those of you who have never seen Poh Piah skin being made. Ever wonder if they […]
Shanghai Tim Sum – SingShang Cuisine
I thought that Shanghainese dumpling and la mian cuisine was quite a recent trend in Singapore until I found this 30 year old little Shanghainese Food Stall in the old Margaret Drive FC! Oh, you mean the Shanghainese were around 30 years ago! Ah Soh Des Ka! Started by Sebastian’s father over 30 years ago, […]
Delectable Blessings – Desserts for Health
Healthy desserts!? If only we can discover some way to surmount this incontrovertible oxymoron! Come a little eatery by the name of “by the servings” to the rescue!

Char Kway Teow – Margaret Drive FC
I have received suggestions that I should blog foods from the various Food Centres so that when you all are heading towards a certain Food Centre, you can have recommendations on what to eat so that you will not “waste your calories”. I thought it was a good idea, so I visited Margaret Drive FC […]
Your Feedback Matters!

Astons Wagyu Beef Promotion
I finally realise what the big fuss over Wagyu is all about. The last time I had Wagyu beef steak was at a Japanese BBQ place where I paid $40 for a piece of Wagyu Sirloin. The steak was not so great and I almost gave up on Wagyu. But Astons has done it again. […]
Pang’s – Fiery Cuisine
Spice lovers rejoice! I stumbled upon this restaurant whose owner must have a tongue made of leather. The food here is hot. I mean HOT! So hot, I felt that my breath could cause a sunburn on your face when I talk to you. But seriously, I am not into real hot food. So when […]
Care Corner Orphanage
I would just like to take some time out from food to highlight the plight of orphans in Thailand. In Singapore, the problem of orphaned children is not common, so most of us may not realise what is happening in places like Thailand. Unwanted children are the fault of their parents, sometimes justified, oftentimes not. […]
Gu Zhao Ren Taiwan Porridge – Comfort Food
Nothing satisfies like a nice bowl of hot porridge on a cold rainy day — sign of a real chinaman. Anyway, there are two types of porridge generally available. Taiwanese porridge and Teochew porridge. Both are fine with me when I am seeking comfort food. Imagine my joy when I realise that there was a […]
Hong Kong Tea House – 70′s HK cuisine
Have you ever had a HongKonger look at you funny when you tell him that what he is eating is a a plate of Hong Kong Mee? They will vehemently insist there is no such thing in Hong Kong. Well, the time has come to get one back. Now you can head down to the […]
Pu Tien (Heng Hwa) Restaurant

In the old days, our forefathers came from most of the southern coastal provinces, thus we have grown up with Teochew, Cantonese, Hokkien, Hainan etc cuisines. Nowadays there is an influx of chinese migrants from all over […]
