Marsiling Mall Hawker Centre: New Year, New Hawker Centre, Good Ol’ Makan
Just because we crossed midnight on the 31st of December last year does not mean everything magically changes for the better or worse. It happens every midnight and whatever changes the next day, depends on you. So visiting one of the latest re-furbished hawker centres in a far flung edge...MORE
Racha745: Street Salted and Grilled
The thing about eating in Thailand, is the names of the places and the location, especially the far flung authentic spots where not much tourist are seen (as in my kind of places). We just can’t pronounce it right to the cabbie no matter how accurate you try to be....MORE
Makko Teck Neo Nonya Café: Mark this Nonya Makko
The first thing that struck me here was the location, a cul-de-sac end of a HDB row of shop lots, framed by black and white bamboo curtains coloured with Nonya touches and lanterns. Push past the sliding glass doors and the cool interior reminded me of Nonya cafés I ate...MORE
Laksaamana: KL Style Laksa and the Nasi Legend
The Singapore folks met them at some event in Kuala Lumpur, hit it off, and only realised they are the owners of the famous Laksaamana group of cafes in Malaysia. One good thing led to another and now, Laksaamana is available in Singapore. I’ve many enjoyed their fare in Kuala...MORE
3 wonders at Eunos Hawker Centre today
With today’s issues on transport cost, lack of personal lifestyle time and convenience, it is a luxury to be able to travel to any corner of the city just to eat what they like at a whim. But with about 110 hawker centres in Singapore, plus at least 1000 food...MORE
Salt of our Hawker Centre
This is the second Gen Y hawker in the same food centre that, when asked, responded with a “because our food heritage is worth protecting” in as many years. The other was the Roast Paradise roast meat stall. Some have not much of an inkling why they are boarded up...MORE
Burg’s: The Slick Hawker Burgers
Why do folks line up at some hawker stalls and avoid others like the plague or a bad traffic jam at the CTE during a heavy downpour (just to give you perspectives). One reason could be the cheap-cheap factor, “2 Vegetables, 1 Meat for $2.50” lure. Great for those who...MORE
Hock Leng Satay Beehoon: The last Lok Lok Hawker
Satay blanch blanch, that’s what it’s really called when translated to English. But I think I will stick to the traditional name Satay Lok Lok, and this is known to be the last such hawker stall in Singapore and I  have to give it due respect for the pleasure this...MORE
Chef Lam: Sang Mee a Cze Cha Song
The definitive mass marker Singapore family eatery is the cze cha (cook and fry) restaurants and stalls.  To me, this is where busy families will hover and gravitate to when they want to bond over decent local restaurant dishes at budget prices. They serve way more than the “meat, soup...MORE
Potato Balls of Fire!
You cannot avoid potatoes, they are everywhere. Come on, you Paleo diet devotees, you know you’ve sinned before because they do attractive and moreish things with it over the decades-  from tater tots, bagedil, hash browns, criss cut and curly fries, chips, rosti, bangers and mash and even gnocchi (I...MORE
