Three Eggs and the Oysters
Let’s get one fact clear today- to render a god version of this sinful platter of or luak or fried oyster omelette with all those crispy, gummy and eggy edges with soft starchy sensations and juicy oysters burrowed within, a lot of oil has to be used. I kid you not, just take a look at how many spatula of oil is showered on the pan before and as they...MORE

In frustration, I decided to walkabout and tracked a couple of halal Malay dishes and also stumbled upon a refreshing gem- a orange peel sour plum...MORE

Now that I am up for air after all these recent giddy-hoohas over the recent Michelin Singapore guide awards and star rankings, I need to inflect and reflect. So bear with me.

How delicious is the Bib Gourmand.
The internet vitriol over the recent announcement of Bib Gourmand hawkers as recommended by the upcoming Michelin Singapore food guide was, at the very least, disappointing for the online local foodie watchdogs and community here. Bib Gourmand awards are “recommendations” by the Michelin food guide, not Michelin star winners. For starters “ we relied on full time international judges, and even foreigners based locally.” said the guide book international director...MORE
