The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge: Wrap-Up
By Alfred December 1, 2009
The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge Hor fun is something one can eat at many cze char places but more often than not, it is 'severely abused' in the form of a $3 pack. Let's face it - for $3, there is a limit to the shiokness attainable, right? There are many ways to make a plate of hor fun more shiok but if like me, you find it needless to reinvent the wheel, then an opeh leaf version ...

The Opeh Leaf Hor Fun Challenge – Part 8: Fei Lao Seafood At Bedok
By Alfred November 30, 2009
Fei Lao Seafood may sound new to you but it is a household name at Bedok area for hor fun with a ferocious 'breath of the wok' or what is famously known as the wok hei in cantonese. Somehow it's here where the spirit of the fire can be unlocked to impart that nice smoky sublime flavour from the wok to the hor fun which lingers over the opeh leaf. Well, for those who are interested to read more on ...

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 ...

Can you think of any food in Singapore that have no more than 20 stalls selling it? Off the top of my head, I can only think of one and it is 猪脚冻 or pork jelly(aspic). Not sure if I'm a suah ku here but I only know of 3 stalls selling it in Singapore. Then there are other food like Turtle Soup or Beef Noodles which I believe to have no more than 50 stalls each around ...

I am pretty sure that most people know Katong is where they should head for Laksa and Changi is where they should head for Nasi Lemak. So do you know what you should head to Hougang for? The Teochews, Hokkiens and Hakkas had arrived in Singapore much earlier therefore they were well entrenched in all kind of trades while the Hainanese being one of the 'late arrivals' here due to the 'late opening' of Hainan Island to foreign trade, were ...

What is the cornerstone of Hainanese Curry Rice? Well the uniquely sweet gooey curry(or a few kinds of sauces in some cases) is the main attraction of most Hainanese Curry Rice. And how did a piece of pork chop get involved? I don't really know but it's not difficult to imagine our Hainanese ancestors dipping pork cutlets into curries in the ship's galley in the past when they were hungry right? Conveniently, curry and porkchops became fundamental features of ...

At the beginning, I was bemoaning the fact that I have been missing out on many fantastic Hainanese Curry Rice around the island but yet it clearly wouldn't had made much difference even if I did find them out earlier. ...

I recently had a blast of continuous meals of Hainanese Curry Rice throughout the island and the main reason is as I've mentioned before, to find out how others perform as compared to my favourite one which is the Scissors Cut at Jalan Besar. Having tasted some of the really famous ones, I think some are a slight exaggeration of the actual quality. Overall I liked some that I've tried for the first time, but I have to say ...

I'm sure many of you have been to Redhill Market to eat the curry rice. And I'm sure some of you might know that the owner of this curry rice stall is actually a Teochew and there is no "Hainanese" written on the signboard. But after having a meal there, I find that it do 'pass' as a Hainanese version as the flavours of the dishes do have that "Hainanese" culture. And so I thought it deserves a ...

So everyone knows that Hainanese Curry Rice is a Singapore's creation. What if Hainan Island one day decides to 'hijack' this piece of our creation? Do you think they can do it successfully? For those who are wondering what's the fuss about all these chilli crabs "ownership", well so do I. I for one can't be bothered who first created chilli crab and whether it will be recognised as a Malaysian dish or Singaporean dish internationally. One thing is for ...

This Hainanese Curry Rice adventure so far has been pretty educational because I get to see what Hainanese ...

Being authentic does not equal to being good. Being good does not equal to being authentic. You probably had been in situations where you couldn't handle some food that's being classified as truly authentic. I for one, cannot handle truly authentic Filipino food. So you see, authenticity in food is clearly not only a unit of "similarity of taste compared to the past" but must also has a relevance to your preference of taste. After tasted many authentic Muslim food ...
