Heng Hua Restaurant (兴化美食) @ Yishun Street 72

There was a period of time before my surgery when I kept going to Yishun because I had to go Khoo Teck Puat Hospital for medical appointments. And one of those days, the husband and I went scouting around for a place to eat and we found this eating house located near the Yishun MRT […]

Steamed Tofu Recipe (with prawns, oyster mushrooms & egg custard)

Steamed tofu? Standard. Steamed egg? Boring. How about steamed tofu with steamed egg and a whole lot more of flavour and crunch? And indeed, this was what I came up with, that truly represented my passion for ‘rojak’ (means ‘mixture’ in Malay) cooking, lol. I had so much ingredients, sauce & garnish on top that […]

Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant @ Bugis Junction

Whenever I visit Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant @ Bugis, I will reminisce the good old busy days of working with my team in the vicinity. Despite slogging away 24/7 then, we always tried to find time to treat ourselves to a good meal whenever time permitted us to do so and this Shanghainese restaurant was […]

Shandong Bing Jia 山东饼家 @ People’s Park Complex, Chinatown

When you come up the escalator from Exit C of Chinatown MRT Station, turn left towards People’s Park Complex and you’d see this new Chinese eatery just outside the entrance of the complex, that serves up sizable pan-fried meat buns, pancakes and rolls at cheap prices. How can I just leave without trying my favourite […]

T-One Steamboat 天下第一涮 @ Upper Thomson Road

The husband and I were scouting around Upper Thomson Road for dinner options when we came across this Chinese steamboat place at a corner. What beats having hot, piping steamboat to warm our tummies on a cool, rainy day! Besides, the husband had not tried such Chinese style steamboat before as I had only brought […]

Lor Mee 178 (鹵麵178) @ Tiong Bahru Market

I was craving for nonya kuehs and lor mee so I went gallivanting in Tiong Bahru for some good eats. Headed to Tiong Bahru Market for lunch and had queued up at Tiong Bahru Lor Mee Stall (#02-80) for at least 10 minutes but was told their Lor Mee had sold out by the time […]

Kung Pao Chicken Recipe 宫保鸡丁

Whenever I order a takeaway at my favourite mixed rice stall in my neighbourhood, I’d always look out for their kung pao chicken which consists of juicy cubes of chicken leg/thigh meat and fragrant dried chillies in a savoury sauce. I just wish they would add cashew nuts, trim the skin/fats on the chicken, use […]

Steamed Tofu with Minced Pork & Wolfberries Recipe

I love tofu, be it fried, braised or steamed. And they are just so nutritious too. This is one of my favourite tofu dishes as it’s not oily, not heaty and really easy to make. Who says tofu must always be plain? Not when they are dressed up like this Steamed Tofu with Minced Pork […]

Thunder Tea Rice 擂茶 @ Lau Pa Sat Festival Market

When I was previously working at Raffles Quay, one of my colleagues recommended me to try this thunder tea rice stall. I remembered tasting thunder tea rice a very long time ago but didn’t have a great impression of it because the green coloured tea soup had a very strong flavour that I wasn’t too […]

Lotus Root & Peanuts Pork Ribs Soup Recipe

If you’ve read my earlier post on my favourite lotus root soup from Shen Xi Soup (click here), you’d know how much I really love this soup. I try to cook it at home at least once every 2 weeks and it’s probably healthier than those from outside because I don’t add MSG or too […]

Coca-Cola Pork Ribs Recipe

While I don’t really consume a lot of soft drinks, I do like to use them in my cooking. This Coca-Cola Pork Ribs Recipe is super easy to make. Basically, Coca-Cola is the sole formula for the sauce so except for a simple marination of the pork ribs, there is absolutely no need for further […]

Dragon-i Restaurant 笼的传人上海拉面小笼包 @ City Square, Johor Bahru

This is Part II of my food post from our recent day trip to Johor Bahru two weeks ago. Read Part I here. After spending the afternoon shopping at KSL City, we headed back to City Square to meet up with the parents who only then arrived in JB. They came here like previous years […]

Spicy Egg Plant with Minced Pork Recipe

I have a love-hate relationship with egg plant (also known as brinjal or aubergine). It’s the texture that just doesn’t appeal to me. Also I find its bitter flavour more of an acquired taste, that’s why I’d refuse to eat it when I was little. It all depends on how it is being cooked but […]

Tofu with Minced Pork Recipe

I remembered when I was in college in the States, I was very busy with a tv production project at one point. One of my house mates then cooked Mapo Tofu for dinner and we gobbled down the entire pot of it with white rice. It was a truly enjoyable respite from daily frozen dinners […]

Pu Tien Restaurant 莆田菜馆 (Heng Hwa Cuisine) @ NEX

I remembered I was first introduced to Pu Tien several years back by my ‘PK mum’ (an endearing term for a friend who calls me PK aka Pumpkin) as she was raving about its Lor Mee. In my mind, Lor Mee has always been a bowl of thick flat yellow noodles in a thick, dark […]
