Dai Dong Prawn Noodle – Best Prawn Mee Soup For Me!
By Alfred February 23, 2010
I was on a mission to hunt for Big Prawn Mee stalls outside of the Jalan Besar/Beach Road vicinity lately and am glad to report that I managed to find a few on the northern part of Singapore which will be reviewed in the next few posts. Now I'm feeling very good lately as far my hae mee fix is concerned because I've finally found one hae mee that is worth a rave, finally!!!! Let's face it - Prawn ...

Hui Ji Fish Ball Noodle, Yong Tau Fu – Seriously Shiok, Authentic & Cheap!
By Alfred February 4, 2010
The beautiful thing about commercialisation of our local hawker food businesses, is that we appreciate the old school stalls(really authentic kind) even more. Nowadays, we have to travel quite a distance to a particular stall to experience a particular authentic taste. I mean after all the travelling hassle(bitter), the sweetness becomes more sweet and the shiokness becomes more shiok, right? It has a greater perceived value(seen as gold!) due to it's scarcity, otherwise if they are all over the place ...

Yong Huat – Possibly The Only Place You Get Tik Poh In Your Prawn Noodles!
By Alfred January 27, 2010
There are so many big prawn noodles stalls that aim to produce a bowl of mind-blowing hae mee with king prawns but do you think ingredients like sliced fish cakes and sliced pork should be discarded in that process? After eating so many big prawn noodles recently, I am missing a bit of the sliced fish cakes and sliced pork. I mean no doubt we want a hearty bowl of hae mee that can triumph in shiokness but the basic ...

Thiam Seng Seafood – At Last You Don’t Need To Spend $10 For A Shiok Hor Fun!
By Alfred January 18, 2010
The best hor fun for me was done without the use of eggs and with that delightful wok hei from the charred hor fun permeating through the gravy. Now it's true that some hor fun with eggs thrown in can still taste fractionally shiok but yet most of the time, that 'eggy' flavor can be a little 'disturbing' because it masked away all those essential shiok flavors like the wok hei(if any) or flavours of any other ingredients like ...

Crystal Jade Kitchen – Finally Found An Authentic Salt & Pepper Spare Rib!
By Alfred January 14, 2010
Every time I have a Cantonese meal, I would remember the days when I was abroad. In foreign land, the food that you grew up eating can be hard to come by and one would naturally look for the closest thing to flavours one missed the most and for me, Cantonese food come the closest. Unfortunately, when I came back, I realised that authentic Hong Kong flavors are something one will be really hard-pressed to find in Singapore. Apparently, the ...

Sungei Road Laksa: Sungei Road Revisited To Look For The Real Stall!
By Alfred December 3, 2009
What do you think are the defining points of a shiok laksa? The Katong version outshines the normal ones because of the more robust gravy but what exactly are the extra ingredients? Some said Katong laksa's gravy uses cow milk while others said it's soya milk and I personally think that it could be sweetened condensed milk. I guess at the end of the day, it's all about getting the hits to your umami right with the correct balance of ...

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 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 ...

Da Jie Famous Wanton Mee – Not Only Famous But Cheap And Good!
By Alfred November 14, 2009
Although you need to have a good $3 in your pocket to enjoy a decent meal nowadays, there are some stalls that insist on selling you a meal for $2. Infact some of these stalls are dishing out foods that are pretty good. Stalls like Tong Xing Roasted, Sungei Road Laksa or Hai Kee Roasted Specialist sell foods at $2 with quality that are well qualified to be sold at $3-$4. Hong Kong style Wanton Mee ...

Weng Hoo’s Shui Jiao Mian – Simply The Best Shui Jiao!
By Alfred October 18, 2009
I always say that authenticity is a relative term and everyone's measure of it comes in different distinctive forms. One of Hong Kong's most famous exports, Singapore's Wanton Mee which is so repeated-to-death in our coffeeshops around the island, is detest by Malaysians who surprisingly loathe the idea of adding chilli to spice up their Wanton Mee gravy. For them, the original taste of the gravy is what that should denotes the flavour though the bitterly sweet pitch-black sauce ...

Sakura Charcoal Grilled & Shabu Shabu – Can’t be beaten for value!
By Alfred September 21, 2009
I hated buffets when I was younger. For me, buffet is one of those eating places where you walk away after a meal feeling very uncomfortable. Theoritically, when you walk into a buffet place, you're placing a bet. You bet that you can consume more in value for the price to be paid. You either can consume more or you can't. So you either lose the bet or you win the bet. Therefore we'll try to beat the house right? ...

The Bak Chor Mee Challenge: Which is the best in Bedok? Part 8 of 8
By Alfred September 9, 2009
I had initially planned for this Bak Chor Mee write-up to be a 8 parts series because I only know of 8 stalls(1 of which is out of Bedok) at first. However I've been brought to the attention of another 3 stalls. 1 stall is also in Bedok while the other 2 stalls are out of Bedok. Therefore there will be an extension of 3 more posts and this 8 part series will be done with this post(which is the ...

Copycats are quite unpreventable in this world. As long as something is good and in demand, you can believe that somehow, somewhere, someone will be coming to steal the market share. It's for that reason that farmers hardly ever get rich because if something is in demand, then other farmers would start growing it and sooner or later, what you're growing would be worthless. In Fengshan Market & Food Centre at Blk 85 Bedok North St 4, there are currently ...

Jakarta Eats Part 11: My Gold Standard Seafood: PangKep
By Alfred June 1, 2009
What do you guys think of the Hong Kong 'Dai Pai Dong' or the 大排档? Ok for those who don't know, in Hong Kong this type of popular eating outlet is something like our Singapore's kopitiam Cze Char where they serve you food at really affordable prices. Well it's meant to serve the general public of humble income and not only that they can provide terrific customer service too. For instance, one can actually order any tailor-made dishes from such stalls. ...

Bali Eats Part 1: Ibu Oka Babi Guling In Ubud
By Alfred May 26, 2009
When we go travelling, we all have different purposes I guess. Some must whack the local food while others must visit the museums and the women will more likely be eyeing the shopping malls. I am the kind who likes driving and eating when I'm on a trip. Driving because the freedom of movement, you can go anywhere you want. Eating because that's your good chance to eat something that is not only authentic but also cheap. So you can ...
