If you’re looking for a compelling argument to give pig liver a try, there’s a hawker stall you need to visit—Jin Xi Lai (Mui Siong) Minced Meat Noodle.
A food blog from a Singapore-based traveler
Jin Xi Lai (Mui Siong) Minced Meat Noodle, situated in Yi He Eating House, boasts a BCM recipe that’s more than 50 years old!
Like Teochew herh keow, these "UFO" oyster cakes are really one of those things that really deserve more attention. Mine was still warm from this stall (166 Jalan Besar #02-34), and it was not just delightfully briny, but was also filled with the heft of minced meat and earthy greens inside.
One Farrer Hotel, located within walking distance of Farrer Park MRT Station, is formerly known as One Farrer Hotel and Spa. The hotel is integrated with Farrer Park Hospital and Farrer Park Medical Centre.
All in all, I enjoyed the hotel stay at One Farrer.
Food at One Farrer Hotel is mostly provided at the Garden Pavilion Restaurant. Fully air-conditioned and set amidst the Garden Walk, with flowy drapes and elegant chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, the large dining hall looks so welcoming.
I wouldn't say no to this comfort bowl of childhood favourite. They are opened daily 9.30am to 5pm but closed on Wednesday. I bet you will feel the same that the queue is worth waiting for!
Someone had warned me :“don’t bother to try the sungei road laksa as the portion is really small nowadays and standard isn’t as great as bef...
Hawker food with long history is hard to come by in Singapore. If you have not yet tried Sungei Road Laksa, it is worth the trip to Jalan Besar for a taste of how Laksa is prepared and served in the past. I left feeling very satisfied.
Swee Choon Tim Sum is one of Singapore's oldest Dim Sum restaurants.
Swee Choon has been one of my to go to places for supper since my clubbing days.

Spice Brasserie at PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road has reopened its doors and we are all ready for their Christmas buffet.
I always like the buffet offered by Spice Brasserie. Since now it is ala carte format, it is even better. Sit back, order and eat.
I love how every component in this bowl of porridge is coming together beautifully not just in terms of flavors but textures as well.
This was something I would eat very often if I stayed nearby, if not for the wait and the heat. My favourite porridge in Singapore, together with Soon Lee at Clementi.
Johore Road Boon Kee Pork Porridge is located along Veerasamy Road. They specialize in Hainanese porridge and their porridge is visibly grainier and thicker than Cantonese or Teochew porridge.
No doubt that their dim sum was freshly made with traditional recipes, there are still many competitors out there for their dim sum which can be better and worth the money spent. The time we spent in the queue did not make justice to our meal here. Perhaps, it's best to make a reservation before heading down there.
This was a satisfying birthday lunch and no doubt I would be back again! Three items deserved a re-order and they shall be the Wolfberry with Mushroom Siew Mai, the Signature Hot & Spicy Dumplings and the Signature Pandan Crispy Pork Bun!
There seem to be more and more Dim Sum options around these days. Sum Dim Sum opened up at Jalan Besar and offers some creative items.
While the place is specializing in coffee, they have quite a good menu offering the different kinds of coffee. Coffee lovers might want to visit this place to check it out.
If you’d like a taste of Brotherbird Bakehouse’s more unique flavours, without having to deal with ordering online, head down to the newly-reopened Brotherbird Coffeehouse.
Food at % Arabica is limited to a few baked goods. People come for the coffee beverages, in either hot or iced form.
Would love to be back soon! Maybe with one basket of otah and another basket of curry siew mai. And maybe more deep fried items. Plus, of course, the yummy lava buns!
I like what I had; consistency was smooth although flavor was on the bland side. What I enjoyed most was that there were plenty of ingredients inside, and the generous amount of century eggs definitely enhanced the flavor of the congee! Only thing I regretted, not adding an egg!
Happy Congee, 滿粥了, porridge, jalan besar
As for the prawn soup, I am relieved that there is no overwhelming saccharine levels of rock sugar because that is how the prawn soup from my neighborhood tastes like.
Sometimes expectations can get way too high when you hear about a restaurant or a stall in Singapore. So I always have to temper them when I eat at a place that has been featured many times on tv o…
Although on the lighter side, it is still flavorful enough with crustacean essence and a underlying pork sweetness that does not make me feel guilty for finishing it to the last drop.
We look forward to seeing how Kumoya gets morphed into Kiki and Lala’s very own heavenly Land of Stars, with hanging clouds, lots of stars, and decked in dreamy pastel tones.
Have a go with their claw machine and you might walk away with your own We Bare Bear plushie.
From adults to children, there is plenty for all generations to enjoy.
An epicureanistic corollary to its 3-year-old burgeoning Cantonese tour de force of a near identical name, Jia He Grand Chinese Restaurant officially unfurled at One Farrer Hotel on 16 November...
At Jia He you have to make a reservation for their Dim Sum Brunch way in advance. For us, it was 4 weeks. Is it worth it? Of course I always start with Har Gow and Siew Mai. These were pretty decen…
We got to try the Roast Duck (above): crispy skin, juicy meat and good marination. Excellent sauce. I'm tempted to come back and try the Peking duck.
On the whole, the food is lighter than elsewhere, and are suitable for older folks. Parents and grandparents may appreciate it.
The dishes lean towards a mix of Sichuan and Cantonese fares at this branch, and it is one Chinese restaurant to check out in Farrer Park.
The Japanese dumpling, is a twist to the usual spicy wantons. Nice and of a good sized but I prefer the original sauce for that spicy kick.
Food at Dim Sum Haus is focused on casual Chinese Cantonese cuisine, such as noodles, congee, and dim sum.
Service at Dim Sum Haus is upbeat, happy, and friendly.
The hotel was re-opened in 2012 with a re-design done by Tiah Nan Chyuan and his team from local design firm, FARM.
We are not a big fan of the decor and atmosphere of Enjoy Eating House and Bar @ Jalan Besar. However, the food we tried were enjoyable. The menu is fairly extensive and prices are reasonable.
Overall, good prices for these bar food and efficiently prompt delivery service.
Besides the puffs, the Malay stall also offers items like Nasi Lemak. This will be another breakfast option while waiting for your traditional Kopi, eggs and toasts at Heap Seng Leong.
Heap Seng Leong Coffeeshop, the old school coffee shop you have to visit.
curry not tasty & puff a bit chewy doughy.
Thankfully the years of Michelin stardom do not seem to have adversely affected the appeal of the Singapore Michelin Star Hawker Bak Chor Mee. The thought of long queues was the reason we had not visited them in a while. It seems that the situation is not too bad during off-peak hours.
This Teochew-style pork noodle was started from a pushcart in 1932 before moving into a coffee shop in 1939 at Hill Street then moved to Mar...
This was the bak chor mee of the one Michelin star fame. The sauce here tasted just right, with a balanced tartness and savouriness. There was care taken with every ingredient, such that everything tasted great, including the meatballs which were outstanding in terms of texture and freshness.
