168 CMY Satay: Michelin Plate Satay
There are two satays stalls listed in the Michelin Guide (Michelin plate) and this stall in Chinatown Complex Food Centre is one of them. Now I do think the inspectors do a fairly good job at reviewing fine dining establishments, but when it comes to local hawker food, I think they just don’t do enough […]
Malacca Food Trip 2020
Satay is the one thing that I always look forward to eating in Melaka. Their Hainanese style satay is different from the version we have here in Singapore. It’s more salty then sweet and provides a nice contrast to the sweet peanut sauce. Ming’s Sate Hut has been around for three generations and is the […]
Co Chung Restaurant: Vietnamese Aunty in the Kitchen!
I haven't really been into Vietnamese food since my trip to Ho Chi Minh City in 2018. Somehow I haven't really found a Vietnamese restaurant to get excited about.. up till now.
Teochew Traditional Steamboat: Superb Steamboat!
What makes this a "Teochew" Steamboat? When I was growing up, I don't remember ever referring to steamboat as "Teochew" or "Cantonese" or "Hainanese". Steamboat, or as we say in Teochew "juang lou" literally means "anything pot" which really is what a Chinese steamboat is all about -- you start with a pot of chicken stock and you put in anything you like! So, I guess a Teochew steamboat is anything that a Teochew would put into the pot!
Chye Seng Satay: Old School Mom and Pop Satay
This stall, tucked in one corner of Old Airport Road Food Centre is the most underrated stall that we have uncovered during our Satay Trail. The most famous satay stall at the Old Airport Road is Chuan Kee where you may sometimes have to wait an hour before you would be served your satay. In contrast, there was hardly a queue at Chye Seng.
Shi Xiang Satay: Tasty, Tender, Morsels of Meat!
When I posted the our mission statement on Facebook recently, I was greeted with a few comments about why we even needed to do that since Satay has always been great, why is there even a need to make it "Great Again"?
Leslie’s Best Pineapple Tart Recipe
Pineapple tarts are one of my all time favourite Chinese New Year snacks. I find them irresistible, especially when paired with Bak Kwa and a cup of tea. I like the covered tarts, (which really should be called a shortbread cake) with a buttery, powdery crust which melts in your mouth with little resistance. However, […]
You Fu Hokkien Mee: Long Live Hokkien Mee!
Char Kway Teow might be facing an uncertain future, but for Hokkien Mee, the future looks promising. In recent years we have seen next generation hawkers like Xiao Di, Hokkien Man and Liang Ji enter the fray. Today, we showcase our youngest contender, Andre Ong, 22, who started his Hokkien Mee stall at Golden Mile […]
Elevate your Mapo Tofu Recipe: with RedMart
Mapo tofu is one of those dishes that make a regular appearance at our dinner table. It is cheap and easy to cook and it goes so well with rice! But recently, I discovered that you can bring it to the next level by using Pixian Dou Ban that we got from Lazada! In the […]
Carne: Premium, Grassfed, Organic and all the Jazz
Let me say at the outset that if you go to Carne expecting to be blown away by the burger created by the Chef behind the World's No. 1 restaurant, then you would be setting yourself up for a major dissappointment

Chai Ho Satay: Cheap and Good!
Updated 26 Mar 2021 When I last wrote about Chai Ho Satay in 2013, the satays were going for 38 cents each! They have since increased to 50 cents but are still one of cheapest satays you can find! Not only are they cheap, I think the satays are actually better than the last time […]
