Drunken Cockles at 3 Crab Delicacy Seafood Restaurant

Love the Curry Crab & Drunken Cockles at No. 3 Crab Delicacy!

I was thrilled to get some Cze Char at No. 3 Crab Delicacy during my first weekend back in town after a 3 month stay in the US. It’s been ages since I visited No. 3 Crab Delicacy Seafood Restaurant and I wondered if the food was still as good as I remembered. As we were planning […]

Rustic European Food at Shelter in the Woods

Shelter in the Woods is a rustic European restaurant located at Greenwood Avenue, off Bukit Timah Road. Intrigued by the name that conjured up visions of fairy tale characters like Snow White or Goldilocks stumbling onto cottages whilst wandering in the woods, I was thrilled to have been invited to check it out. Helmed by Japanese-born, European-trained […]

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 […]

Cze Char at Jin Wee Restaurant

S, Y and I met up for dinner at Jin Wee Restaurant in Siglap a few weeks back. Don’t be deceived by the name of this dining establishment as it is in reality an old-school Hainanese-run coffeeshop located close to the 24 hour NTUC outlet in Siglap. This place has been around for as long […]

Budget Yu Sheng from Smith Street, Chinatown

Chinese New Year starts tomorrow. It’s the time of the year again to Lo Hei Yu Sheng 捞起魚生, the prosperity salad that is tossed for luck. This year’s CNY atmosphere seems even more subdued than last year as a slow economy and uncertain job environment is prompting many Singaporeans to tighten their belts. Shopkeepers have been complaining […]
