The Friendly Seafood Pirate
Many of these hawkers may be struggling in a Social Enterprise Hawker Centre under high rents and operation cost, which came under scrutiny recently, but I know there are makan gems hidden in these places. I recommended a young prawn and char siew noodle chef in the Pasir Ris Hawker Centre recently and I came across this other Generation Y cook in Yishun. These new and young hawkers have to...MORE
How Fish Head Curry Should Be
I am no expert on Indian food but I can sense just what one billion people in India enjoy and survive on every day. I am quite sure their full range of flavours are not totally represented in Singapore yet, I am very daunted each time I visit Little India for a makan exploration and when not on a “Mustafa-trip”. I have worked with NGO groups in India, which represents...MORE
Please Preserve our Public Hawker Centres
Open Letter to Snr Minister of State Dr Amy Khor

Dear SMS Dr Amy Khor, 

Please Preserve our Public Hawker Centres

Hand Power Epok Epok
Don’t get confused, there’s curry puff, kali pap, baked curry puff and epok epok. To a connoisseur, they all mean different things. Curry puff is the kind local fast food snack chains dish out- largely sold by Chinese hawkers and cooks. Kali pap is the triangular shaped crusty edge version you see at Indian snack and kopi stalls (a true blue made in Singapore dish) and the baked curry puff...MORE
Prawnaholic: A Thinking Hawker’s Hae Mee
The best advice his sifu ever gave and taught him was “how to be a good person and professional”. And Alan Choong never forgot it, “the cooking skill I picked up was good but it’s what he taught me as a person, since I was 17.” His sifu is no other than the well-respected Chef Sam Leong, who once headed the Tung Lok kitchens and led the award-winning Forest Restaurant...MORE
A Porridge called Comfort
There is porridge and there is porridge, plus congee. There’s Cantonese, Hainan, Teochew, Hokkien and the twain have met long ago. Now, there’s just good, comforting or sad versions around. Yes, I like all of these styles- creamy like from Guangzhou or Hong Kong, grainy like the Hainan local renditions, just soft rice with fish soup ala the Teochew versions, the “explosive” porridge (there they top it with deep fried...MORE
