Balestier Road Hoover Rojak @ Whampoa Makan Place

I tried the rojak from this stall many years ago when my then-colleagues and I came by for 梁照记 duck rice (just next door to this) on a few occasions and there would definitely be long queues at both stalls during peak lunch time. Though I was here around mid-afternoon, the queue at this stall […]

Best Lu Mian In Town @ Whampoa Makan Place

Been a while since I last visited Whampoa market for Singapore local food. And it was only in recent weeks when I had been frequenting the area to buy bread from the nearby traditional bakeries that I had the chance to explore further. First up, let’s take a look at the Best Lu Mian In […]

Toh Kee Roast Duck Rice @ People’s Park Food Centre

The husband and I had been wanting to try this really popular stall at People’s Park Food Centre (just next to OG Department Store) but the roast meat (siu yok) was completely sold out on the last couple of occasions we were here. This time we came by about 1pm on a Saturday afternoon for […]

Ji De Lai Braised Duck Rice 记得来卤鸭饭 @ Ang Mo Kio Ave 10

Though I’ve lived in Ang Mo Kio for the longest time ever, there are still a number of places I’ve yet to explore including this particular precinct. Previously I was in the vicinity to buy cakes from Pine Garden and this time round I was supposed to have lunch at Nakhon Kitchen with the makan […]

Soon Soon Heng Bak Kut Teh 顺顺兴肉骨茶 @ Johor Bahru

Finally, finally, the last instalment of my bak kut teh eat-venture. Before this, I didn’t fancy peppery BKTs that much so it had never really been a meal option for consideration. After trying some good BKTs in Singapore recently, I couldn’t deny that my taste buds had indeed changed over time and I’m already loving […]

Ya Hua Bak Kut Teh 亞華肉骨茶 @ Havelock Road

Ask my husband which is his favourite bak kut teh in Singapore to date and he will definitely reply, “Ya Hua”. He has been regularly patronising Ya Hua BKT during lunch time with his colleagues for quite a while now since their office is nearby so in our earlier BKT adventure, he insisted that I should […]

Galicier Pastry Chinese New Year Goodies Price List for 2015

CNY shopping had been a last minute mad rush for me as I’d only started on it today for the entire day, lol. For the last two days, the husband had popped over to Galicier Pastry from his office that’s nearby as I wanted him to buy pineapple tarts but they always ran out by the […]

What to buy from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia? Zhang Village & Kee Heong

It’s so strange as I had been to KL many times for business but I had never taken notice of anything (food) interesting to bring home to Singapore. Maybe that’s what happens during work trips – everything else seems so unexciting, lol. Anyway, the husband had to work on a mega project which he had […]

603 Tau Sar Piah vs Royal River Bakery (aka Whampoa Tau Sar Piah)

Hello folks! How’s CNY preparation coming along? Just one more week to go. I’m back from a cruise on Sapphire Princess (amazing experience!) and still feeling quite shagged after a few nights of little or no sleep. Too much action at the casino, lol. And I’m having a bad sunburn and rash on my body which […]

[CLOSED] Taiwan Railway Bento 台湾鐵路便當 @ CT Hub (Kallang)

Update: This outlet had closed. Bentos were first introduced to Taiwan by the Japanese many decades ago and railway bentos simply grew in popularity as people packed rice boxes to eat onboard the train during long inter-city journeys. Unlike the Japanese equivalent that’s normally chilled, Taiwanese railway bentos are served hot with a wide variety […]

Founder Bak Kut Teh Restaurant @ Balestier Road

My Bak Kut Teh adventure continues, lol. Right after having an unexciting BKT at Song Fa the day before, the husband insisted that we should go try the famous Founder BKT @ Balestier that so many people had raved about. Even celebrities like Jay Chou would always visit this place whenever he is in Singapore. Hmm, what’s so great […]

Song Fa Bak Kut Teh @ Seletar Mall

I’m now a convert and I don’t mean it religiously. From a previous ‘I don’t like peppery bak kut teh’ attitude to the current ‘I want to eat peppery bak kut teh’ mindset, I can’t help but feel amused that my tastebuds have yet again evolved (likely with age?) or perhaps I’m just a late BKT bloomer, lol. Well, thanks to my BKT-fanatic husband, we had […]

Weekend brunch buffet @ Cafebiz, Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore

Update: Cafebiz is now known as J65. Goodbye Traders. Hello Jen. If you’ve not heard about the news, well, the former Traders Hotel on Cuscaden Road had been rebranded as Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore (not to be confused with Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore) since September last year. The old Traders Hotel had been one of […]

A Long Long Lunch @ Edge, Pan Pacific Hotel

My love for Singapore food is probably beyond imagination, lol. When I had to travel frequently for business in a previous job, the one thing that I’d always miss was our char kway teow, bak chor mee, chicken rice and the like because these local eats are simply a myriad of flavours, aromas, sights and sounds that are not only appetising but […]

Kow Loon Hong Kong Dim Sum @ 151 Ang Mo Kio Ave 5

I hadn’t come back here for dim sum for a long while now though this stall which has been in operation for almost 30 years is just less than a 10-minute walk away from my house. How convenient! One of the Sundays, the husband and I decided to wake up early and head here for yum […]

Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House @ Sunshine Plaza

Parklane Zha Yun Tun Mee House used to have an outlet at North Bridge Commercial Complex (the current Bugis Cube) along North Bridge Road and I often had my lunch there when I was working at Liang Seah Street many years back. When the outlet closed several years ago, I was deeply disappointed as I […]
