The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 7: Top Seafood At Toa Payoh
By Alfred November 26, 2009
It is not surprising to see opeh leaf hor fun being disguised by pretentious facades at some cze char outlets but then the novelty of it is not just a matter of putting fried hor fun on a piece of opeh leaf. The niceties of an opeh leaf hor fun must include the inconspicuous wok hei with plenty of delicious seafood(king prawns and cucumber) while the gravy must do a good job in blending the flavour and the taste to ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 6: Hong Sheng At Toa Payoh
By Alfred November 25, 2009
If you asked me like, 15 years ago what is the most amazing thing about a plate of opeh leaf hor fun, I'd swear it's the big succulent prawns. I mean, big juicy prawns are things that kids only get to eat during occasions like wedding dinners so to find it in a pack of strangely wrapped hor fun is one of those moments I relished. Moving on to now, my pick would be the wok hei. I mean wok ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 5: Fatty Weng At Guillemard Road
By Alfred November 24, 2009
The construction of what will be a very tok kong(fantastic) hor fun is, as I've mentioned many times before, the ingredients used( good seafood), tasty gravy and good wok hei. For those who are unclear, wok hei here is referring to the charred surface that appears on the hor fun which will provide every mouthful of it with a little 'grilled' aroma similar to what you get in satays or steaks. It's just that little bit of charred(not a lot) ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 4: Hong Kong Street Chun Kee At Bukit Merah
By Alfred November 23, 2009
I've lately been brought to the attention of several Cze Char stalls that have opeh leaf hor fun in their menus. After eating at these stalls, I have to say that the flavours seem to be very different in most of the stalls though they all are quite authentic in their own ways. Basically, the one that I grew up eating(Fei Lao), is my gold standard opeh leaf hor fun. It's the combination of the ingredients used, the bud-titillating ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 3: Chu Yi Kitchen At Ang Mo Kio
By Alfred November 22, 2009
There is one question that is always on my mind: Why can't the normal $3 horfun which you can find in any kopitiams have a good wok hei on them? Why must wok hei and opeh leaf go hand in hand? For those who don't know, in the good ole days, hor fun with the wok hei was as common as prawns in your prawn noodles soup today. Back then, if you were having hor fun for dinner, the smell ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 2: Ah Wok Restaurant At Ion Orchard
By Alfred November 21, 2009
There is a game in Malaysia called 'Tarik Upih'. Can you guess how to play this game? Tarik Upih Game 'Upih' here is the opeh leaf which we are using for our hokkien mee and hor fun but it is also used by Malaysians(in kampongs) to play a simple game where a team which consists of a person seating on the leaf-sheath and another person pulling the leaf, races with others to the finishing line. Anyway, it just amazes ...

Ah Ho Teochew Noodles – Not What It Used To Be But The Chilli Is Still Good!
By Alfred November 18, 2009
It is said that Chinese are the inventor of noodles and the world follows. Well what I observed is that certain cultures seem to have food that are marketed by "A students". Why I'm saying so is because food like pasta or pizza can easily make you part $20 for it but yet we don't see our tao sar piah or mee pok tah being eaten in Rome by Italians for $20. Heck if you were to sell to Italians ...

Ponggol Nasi Lemak Centre – As Least There Is A Reason For Me To Join The Queue!
By Alfred November 17, 2009
Ponggol Nasi Lemak Centre at Hougang must be the most extraordinary Nasi Lemak stall in Singapore. Customers virtually clustered to form queues from 6pm to late nights everyday without fail. I guess it is very easy for foreigners to think this is a die die must QUEUE stall but chances are, for many Nasi Lemak connoisseurs, the chilli here simply cannot make it. Good chilli sauce that can go well with the rice is very important for me in ...

Sungei Road Laksa – Still only $2!
By Alfred November 11, 2009
Do you know what Singapore and Morroco have in common? Both countries have a dish named Laksa. "The laksa (also spelt tajine) is a dish originating in Morocco named after the pot in which it is cooked. Laksas are essentially a slow cooked stew braised at low temperatures to create tender meat and flavoursome vegetables. Traditionally Moroccan laksas combine lamb or chicken with a range of exotic spices like ras el hanout, cinnamon and cumin with and ...

River South (Hoe Nam) Prawn Noodle – A Good Hae Mee That Opens Round The Clock!
By Alfred November 3, 2009
Prawn is our rejoice. We chinese can spare the sotong but we can hardly go without prawns in a meal. It doesn't matter whether it's dried, deshelled or fresh, for soup or stir fry. And in most traditional chinese wedding course-dinners, you will be served the legendary steamed drunken prawn, as a token to herald the start of happiness which is represented by the red color in prawns. But, do you know something? Prawns and cockroaches are related. They ...

Well the queues were so long that the seller had to introduce a queue number system where customers had to take a card and wait to be called for their orders!

Lau Shen Shredded Chicken Noodles – Mini “Pork Sausage” With Tik Poh Flavour!

The Teochews are famous for quite a few things. Cultivating the art of preserving food(land infertile so they have to), enjoying seafood's natural taste by steaming it(because they are near to sea so can get fresh ones) and inventing all kinds of kuehs which are the whatever snacks you can find in snack shops like Soon Kueh, Ku Chai Kueh, Png Kueh, Chwee Kueh, Chai Tao Kueh and even Shui Jing Bao and Poh Piah all belong to the Teochew ...

Fu Yuan Teochew Bak Chor Mee – For The Bak Giao Aficionados!
By Alfred October 28, 2009
Tik poh(dried sole fish) is said to be a Teochew invention, and it's no surprise that it's mostly only found in Teochew dishes. Have you wondered how it would be if a Hokkien Mee uses tik poh? I do look forward to the day when some Hokkien Mee sellers bother to throw in a few pieces of tik poh together with the noodles to perform the wok hei. Or if a chok(porridge) has plenty of findly grinded tik pohs sprinkled ...

Eunos 1A Seng Kee Mushroom Minced Pork Noodles – Very Popular But How Good?
By Alfred October 26, 2009
For someone who resides on the east end of Singapore all his life, I must admit that I grew up eating Hokkien Bak Chor Mee and was introduced to the Teochew version only 10 years ago. When I first ate Teochew Bak Chor Mee, the tik poh(dried sole fish) taste in the soup simply blew me away. Tik pok as we all know, has a nice flavour and can be very SHIOK when combined with minced pork and liver. ...

Original Serangoon Fried Hokkien Mee – Simply Second To None!
By Alfred October 15, 2009
Will Malaysia ever dare say that Hokkien Mee was invented by them? Actually, it is very obvious that many foods though have the same names but are clearly referring to different things and flavours in Singapore and Malaysia. Just like Hokkien Mee in Malaysia(which is often called KL hokkien Mee) is yellow mee fried in dark soy sauce while ours are "2-noodles" fried in prawn soup which we also called Hokkien Hae Mee. But then Hokkien Hae Mee in Malaysia ...
