Plum Village may close soon...
It is a pity that after over a 3 decades run, 70 year old Mr Lai Fa Nian is considering shuttering up Plum Village, one of the last two Hakka (or Guest People) restaurants left in Singapore (apart from the yong tauhu eateries and cafes and Kew Garden Restaurant which has a mixture of other Chinese items in the menu). The Hakkas may be a small community in Singapore but...MORE
Skewer Bar: Getting Skewered In Geylang
There are 9 types of craft beers and ciders here, with garden furniture seats by the pathway, jazz music inside at the cozy air-conditioned seating area and the kushiyaki grill-stoves are specially hand carried here from a grill maker specialist from Guangzhou. All the servers and staff wears their hipster all-black tee while at work. Sounds like some cool bbq skewer café set up in the midst of town or...MORE

The first glance and impression at a few  of their numerous outlets in Bangkok where I was this week, spells this – that it’s a clever employment of visuals with edgy design using industrial elements, with no clear themes and clearly a collection of good ideas that don’t match up in one place. This café, with 14 outlets all over Asia including Beijing and Kuala Lumpur, serves food on Gen...MORE
Humble Imperial Feast in New York
To me Flushing in Queens, New York, is about my buddies Colin Goh and his wife Woo Yen Yen, the creators of the Dim Dum Warriors manga series that is set for bigger things worldwide. I would not know just how much of an Asian makan and cultural hub this little town is if not this 18 year “veterans” of the city. The range of and freshness of Chinese fare...MORE
Revolution Coffee: Heritage Food Revolution

Hainanese curry duck, pork nasi briyani, laksa risotto, kway teow soup kambing- if you are getting an idea of what I am onto here, then this below will float your boat. It is about evolving that makan spirit of ours. Like age and culture, food must also amble along otherwise we will still be eating roast meat found after a forest fire like they did back in the ape-man...MORE
