The food, the fad and the oily, at Geylang Serai
I have to admit that this year’s Hari Raya bazaars around the Geylang Serai area are moving the game up a notch. Can’t say it’s for the better or worse. For starters, the fare offered has gone “hipster” which has bad connotations for me, I much prefer the term progressive and fast casual. But, a walk through just a small segment of this fair and you won’t realise it’s an...MORE
Top 50 World Street Food Masters Award
Hawkers or street food cooks today are seen increasingly as vendors of food culture, especially in countries that have a rich heritage street food history.  They lend a culinary brand to a place, offer a dish that is a part of their culture, may it be old or progressive. In the new world of travel and lifestyle experiences, these heritage street food vendors are very sought after by new age...MORE
World Street Food Goodness in Manila (2017)
When I first saw and ate without a blink of hesitation, I knew I had to bring that Soi Lum, an “ah boling” of sorts to our World Street Food Congress (WSFC) in Manila. The extraordinary element here is not just the smooth, soft gumminess with a flawlessly balance bean paste inside (by way of texture and sweetness), but the flecks of dried candied chrysanthemum leaves over the very light...MORE
Enak: Nasi Ambeng sold only in Singapore?
I had always wondered about the origins of nasi ambeng. Sounds Indonesia you say, but fellow food commentator William Wongso, the “godfather” of culinary culture in Indonesia, had never heard of it. It’s confounded by the fact that many nasi padang stalls offer this decadent rice platter adorned with a sea of spicy rempah based ingredients like rendang, fish, eggs, sayour lodeh, eggplant and even a salted egg. Sounds like...MORE
Why some dishes appeal in Hong Lim Food Centre
What makes one dish work in a particular place and not another. If I only had a dollar every time I was asked that question. I would fly you in my private jet to my holiday castle in Europe to answer you personally. But seriously, what works where and why is still something many can’t put a finger to. 

But this much I know, and I will use the example...MORE
Coconut Club: Going Nuts for a $12.80 Nasi Lemak
“What! $12.80 for a plate of nasi lemak! That’s crazy” is the common response about this popular famous coconut sambal rice meal in town. And I’ll add one more today “Huh, did you say he never cooked this dish before this gig? What…!” .One hour before closing on a late and lazy Saturday afternoon, the little café was packed and there was a line out the door. Was this hip...MORE
Kin Khao Restaurant : A Thai Star in San Francisco
I wanted to review this Thai restaurant not just because they proudly tout a one Michelin Star award but, I needed to know if the yardsticks used for ranking a Thai eatery (or any eatery of a distinct culinary heritage for the matter) is the same around the world. Chef Pim Techamuanvivit received her one stardom in 2016 and it help draws the “star grazing” foodies to her little unassuming...MORE
