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 ...

Jia Xiang Sliced Fish Soup & Noodles – If You Love Seafood As Much As Your Bak Chor Mee
By Alfred February 1, 2010
Jack of all trades kind of hawker stalls are becoming a common phenomenon nowadays. If you want to find stalls that sell just 1 item in food centres, that might equate to you trying to find a needle in a haystack. It is actually quite sad to see how out of sync those 'Master Of 1 Food' type of stalls are with the rest of those japalang stalls in markets nowadays. You see, food businesses are becoming very competitive ...

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 ...

Lam’s Abalone Soup – The Ultimate Bowl Of Mee Pok Tah!
By Alfred January 10, 2010
Have you ever wondered what does it take to create a bowl of mee pok tah that is second to none? I must confess that the vigorous attempt by Ah Guan Mee Pok Pte Ltd quite wow me with their $7 bowl which has ingredients like scallops and crayfish but the shiokness there somehow didn't quite hit the potential for me because boiled seafoods are not shiok enough. So what can come to the rescue? Lam’s Abalone Soup is ...

Yan Kee Noodle House – Ikan Bilis To Go With Your Mee Pok Tah
By Alfred December 24, 2009
Fishball noodles and bak chor mee(teochew version) are getting scandalously similar nowadays. You get the same kind of chilli sauce, vinegar, same noodles choice, minced pork, fishcakes, porkballs. The only thing that separates the 2 is the fishballs. I think if there are two local foods that have a high possibility of been coalesced into one very soon, then this 2 would be it. Alas even the soup of these 2 noodles are tasting very similar. I wonder ...

Nowadays contemporary styles' coffeeshop is a common sight and it is just unfortunate that the taste of foods sold in these eateries are also as contemporary as their appearances. Inevitably, we became more appreciative towards coffeeshops that look like they were caught in a time warp because naturally, it is at these old school eateries where we can still find foods that are really authentic.

Ah Guan Mee Pok Pte Ltd – Scallops Or Crayfish To Go With Your Mee Pok Tah!

People in different countries don't greet people the same way. It range from the simple universal "Hello!" to American's 'Howdy?" to British's "What's up?" to Aussie's "Good day!" to Singaporeans' "Jiak Pa Buay?"(Eat already or not?!). Singaporeans are so passionate about their food that the first thing they want to know about their friends is whether they have eaten their meals, but have you wondered why are we so passionate about food? There have been many discussions about this and ...

Xing Hua Seafood Restaurant – If You Relish That Natural Seafood Flavour!
By Alfred December 6, 2009
If you have been to Jalan Besar/Sungei Road/Little India area, you will know that there are many eateries selling Xing Hua food in the form of Putien's cuisine. Putien is a prefecture in the eastern part of Fujian province in China. Ironically the Xing Hua(Fujian people at Putien) didn't live there for very long. Most of them originated from Henan(eastern central of china) and only migrated to Putien after the end of chinese civil war in search of better living ...

Jie Shuang Qiao Jia Li Fan – Authentic Stall Found At Jalan Besar!

There are many little streets in places like Jalan Besar, Beach Road or North Bridge Road area where many hidden gems(especially those virtually invisible from high street) are taking residence. One of it is Jie Shuang Qiao Hainanese Curry Rice on Syed Alwi Road. When I was scouring the island for Hainanese Curry Rice stalls for The Hainanese Curry Rice Challenge, I knew there was another one(other than Jian Dao Jian) lurking somewhere in the Jalan Besar vicinity ...

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 ...

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. ...

What's the difference between a Teo Chew version and a non Teo Chew version? In what kind of circumstances do we expect it to have fishballs or prawns? Unfortunately there are no straight forward ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
