Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Mee

Joo Chiat Ah Huat Wanton Noodle stall at Dunman Food Centre is a family favorite. I love digging into a plate of savory and springy noodle strands with a spicy punch from the savoury chili sauce. I especially love the crunch of crisp lard croutons and the enhanced flavour that the rendered pork fat gave to the dish. The […]

Lost & Found! Whitley Road Fishball Noodles

After an 11-month hiatus following the closure and demolition of Lavender Food Square, Whitley Road Fishball Noodles has resurfaced at a food court close to its old location.   When the news broke about the impending closure of Lavender Food Square, I visited Whitley Road Fishball Noodles weekly – just so I could ask the stallkeeper where […]

Delectable Roast Duck @ Siang Yuen Traditional Roasts

I’ve been craving the Roast Duck at Siang Yuen Traditional Roasts since Kai (Maureen’s fiance) suggested that we check it out after a disappointing brunch at a cafe in Siglap. The great thing about hanging out with a bunch of food bloggers is how we’re united by our common love for good food. It’s been a while since […]

During my recent size-changing trip to Penang, I was determined to hunt down some of the best Penang Laksa on the island.

Hunting Down the Best Penang Char Kway Teow in Penang

During a recent trip to Penang, I checked out some of the island’s most popular Penang Char Kway Teow (Fried Rice Noodles) stalls even though such a quest is detrimental to my weight loss plans. Crazy about carbohydrates and street food, Char Kway Teow is an Achilles Heel for me, amongst many other carb-laden dishes. I prefer […]

Prawn Noodles at Datouxia 大头虾

Prawn Noodles ranks highly as one of my favourite local hawker dishes. However, in recent years, I’ve been increasingly disappointed with the food that’s sold at many prawn noodle stalls in Singapore. The broth at many places are so watered down, I find myself thinking about bringing the broth home to reduce it in the […]

Shisen Hanten at Mandarin Orchard Singapore

I love Sichuan food and used to eat it a few times a week so I was thrilled to be invited to try out Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro at Mandarin Orchard. The Chinese characters in the restaurant’s name mean Sichuan Restaurant Akasaka Szechwan Restaurant (popularly known as Shisen Hanten in Japan) was started in […]
