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 ...

Long Phung – Cheap, Authentic Vietnamese Food At Joo Chiat!
By Alfred December 29, 2009
Everyone knows that Chicken rice and Chilli Crab are Singapore's national dishes but do you know what is Vietnamese's national dish? Vietnamese Pho Noodle (image via) For the uninitiated, Pho aka beef noodle soup is widely regarded by Vietnamese as their national food and it has been around for more than 100 years. Pho(pronounced as 'phir') is actually a fusion food between the Chinese and the French with the flavour of ...

Tai Shek Hei House of Traditional Bamboo Noodles – Retro Bamboo Pressed Noodles
By Alfred December 26, 2009
If you asked me where was the best noodles I have had in Singapore, I will say it was at Crystal Jade. Distinctly like what you can get from any wanton mee stall in Hong Kong, it got that little springy, chewy yet slippery texture with that translucent look that can be so delirious to slurp. I am not sure here, but I'm guessing that Crystal Jade's noodles could be due to the handmade outcome or perhaps the effect of ...

Hong Sheng Restaurant – A Famous Cze Char Stall That Refuse to Charge Exorbitantly!
By Alfred December 4, 2009
Hong Sheng Restaurant at Toa Payoh Ever since I heard about Hong Sheng Restaurant in Toa Payoh and had an opeh leaf hor fun there, I was dying to return to try out their cze char dishes. Aiyah, unfortunately this is one place you must really come early like 5pm or be prepared to wait for 1-2 hours for your food to be cooked. Nevermind that no stalls are allowed to open in the evening and they occupy the ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodles – A Rich Man’s Hae Mee!
By Alfred October 24, 2009
I'll be honest. I seldom eat prawn noodles(soup type) when I'm out. It's not that I'm not a big fan of prawn noodles, but it's hard to find one that's worth my time and money. In fact in most prawn noodles(even the so called good ones) that I know, the prawns they used are quite tasteless after being boiled in the soup for a long long time. So I'll admit that prawn noodles is one of those food that ...

Original Serangoon Fried Hokkien Mee – Simply Second To None!

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 ...

Thien Kee – Authentic Hainanese Steamboat
By Alfred July 3, 2009
Maybe some of you may ask, what is the difference between Hainanese steamboat or Hokkien steamboat or Teochew steamboat? Well Teochew style of steamboat consists mainly of fish especially pomfret. In many places, it is called Fish Head Steamboat and it's soup usually has remarkable flavours which derived from the use of dried sole or tik poh. Now that flavour, just like all Teochew food has a whiff of that Teochew-ness if you know what I mean. Hainanese steamboat is ...

That's one of the reasons why in the past I've never thought about wanting to go and eat this thing because I don't know how to appreciate fish ...

Now we all know that Indonesia were once colonized by the Dutch. Of course the main reason was for economical purposes. Indonesia was full of resources like coffee, sugar and spices back then and the Dutch were crazy over spices like cloves and nutmeg. If I were to tell you that French also once colonized some parts of Indonesia, would you believe? Of course you wouldn't believe since according to history that never happened. But yet there is this place in Indonesia ...
