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.
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!
The highlight is actually the bowl of flavoursome soup that comes with the bowl of noodles. What really stood out is the pig liver! It is thickly sliced and comes with a texture you probably has never eaten before. Crunchy and yet with a soft interior, it is quite hard to describe in words. You still need to try it for yourself to be taken apart by the amazing texture.
Just like what they mentioned via words of mouth, the taste was traditionally good.
I have heard of Victor Famous Fried Chicken Wing for many years but I have been procrastinating my visit. I finally get to taste my childhood memories of Carona Fried Chicken.
Savouring the last piece, I realised something so unassuming, yet humbling about these wings. They look small and underwhelming, yet pack a huge punch of flavour.
I'd still rather go to Usman though.
Haleem from Bismillah Biryani. This one wasn't as citrusy as Usman's, perhaps because one was supposed to squeeze the lime on themselves. But those awesome fried shallots on top made up for it, helping me to wolf this delicious paste down in seconds.
Oh man, that was delicious. After just one bite I had to interrupt the lunch conversation today just to say how amazing this was.
All in all, we enjoyed both cakes a lot even though they were a tad too sweet so if you’re here with your friends, get a few slices to share otherwise it can get really sickly after a while.
I did find the prices a bit exorbitant, but a percentage of their sales goes to Muhammadiyah Home Welfare.
Totally packed, even with reservations we still had to wait for a table
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.
As long as they are willing to continue serving up their delicious bowls of Hainanese porridge, there will be a crowd to keep them alive.

The mee pok's kinda good with a likeable springy texture that had bite.

Chef Shen went for the easy-to-eat Boneless Lamb Biryani ($14.90), which did not disappoint.
Mr Biryani is not only a restaurant but also offer catering service. They have second outlet located at Tanjong Pagar too. The restaurant is currently offering island-wide delivery and takeaway services.
The price is reasonable and affordable too.
Meatsmith is a good restaurant in Little India which I would be back again for its other meats. That said, I would drag along a few more people to enjoy a more varied dishes.
Don't overlook their citrus-y green mango salsa which was a good counter to all the meat and spices.
I loved every bit of my meal and am totally raring to return.
So there you have it, Makan Kakis, for a vegetarian feast of comforting Indian snacks, you really can’t go wrong with a restaurant that has been feeding Singaporean foodies for generations, right from the heart of Little India!
The meals here are pocket-friendly and filling too. No wonder you can see the constant queues forming outside the restaurant. It is a nice place to enjoy a good Indian meal with decent pricing and service.

All in all, this is a real heritage gem.
However, if I were to judge this as Hainanese Chicken Rice in Singapore, I would say there are better options out there as I still prefer my chicken with skin and dressed in the usual light soya sauce with sesame oil combo instead of just dark soya sauce.
Although I’ve had better chicken rice, I would still revisit Hainan Chicken Rice Ball for traditional chicken rice balls, a dish that is slowly disappearing in our hawker scene.
For coffee aficionados who adore the robust, medium-bodied blends that come from Tiong Hoe Speciality Coffee, you will be happy to know that The Wired Monkey sources their blends from them.
It could be a different yet comfortable café experience with its colour-coordinated beanbags and cushions in between, plus you could shift the sliding tables.
The Wired Monkey is a good addition to the Dunlop Street neighbourhood; yet another spot that provides for a more vibrant dining environment with a unique setting for hungry folks and cafe-hoppers alike to visit at least once.
One of the reasons is the ambience, I think, it’s a barefoot restaurant; you have to leave your shoes at the entrance of the stairs, and walk up to the second floor (so don’t wear your expensive shoes, wait kanna stolen).
Overall another great dinner with Eve and MN. The company was great and so were the food. We all come to a conclusion that the meat dishes here are more worth trying than their seafood.
Ignoring the final disappointment, I must say the flavors at Kotuwa are interesting and unique.
Overall Kotuwa was an interesting culinary journey with the exotic flavours of Sri Lanka and South Asia, transformed and elevated by Chef and his team into what we could enjoy.
Food at ABC Nasi Kandar Restaurant is focused on Malay and Indian cuisines, specialising in Nasi Kandar, Tandoori dishes, and curries. Taste and quality is, more often than not, above average and consistent, with few missteps.
Ambience at ABC Nasi Kandar Restaurant is modern functional.
All in all, though they may be somewhat of a hidden find, I have to say that the selections in their buffet spread is pretty impressive.
Personally felt the service and quality of food, at affordable prices, is enough to warrant return visits to Korean Fusion BBQ.
I guess the good thing about living in a small city state is that it does not take very long to get to good eating places; almost every eatery/restaurant is a short (by short, I mean a minimum of 40 minutes) bus or train ride away! Both Ama and I had a craving for briyani,…
