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!
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.
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.
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
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.
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.

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.

Johor Road Boon Kee Pork Porridge is one of the oldest and most popular pork porridge stalls in Singapore.
The former Carona Fried Chicken. As recommended by Miss Tam Chiak and Makan Places Lost and Found. Fragrant and soft rice. Perfectly fried, tender, juicy and tasty well-seasoned chicken wings, with nice crispy skin. Very nice, and clearly popular, with a constant stream of customers.
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.
Premaas was our lunch destination today, and I was fortunate to be able to taste a number of dishes, in particular that red kingfish curry in the upper right corner, as well as the potent pepper in the chicken next to it, all mopped up by a few light and fluffy appam.
Premaas is a Keralan restaurant that has been suggested on several occasions, and I finally made it there tonight (6 Dalhousie Lane, 6392-3644). I focused on their fish, like those sardines above, which were not only light, crispy, and tasty, but also very affordable at just S$4 (US$3) for that plate.
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.
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.
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,…
Jalan Besar is chock full of cafes, and a new upstart that opened in the second quarter of this year is Steep, located along the fringes of Little India.
Overall I think that this cosy cafe is worth paying a visit if you are in the area, for some pretty yummy brunch dishes that don’t cost a bomb
