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.
This Michelin-listed duck place (665 Buffalo Road #01-335, 6396-0969) was pretty good.
They offered a seriously deep, savoury salty and herbal braising sauce, resulting in a flavourful albeit slight thick and chewy duck, and rice that went down quickly. The soup was slightly herbal and sweet. This was traditional and good old school stuff.
I am super big on hawker centers in Singapore but it might surprise some of you that I have never tried the food in the famous tekka center ...
Zhu Jiao Shu Shi's breakfast selection might not be fancy, but it more than satisfies.
If you favour traditional breakfast dishes with milder flavour profiles, check them out!
I tend to choke on my bee hoon when they are too dry but not this. The texture is soft, moist and shorter in strands so it is easier to swallow.
I’m very excited for what’s ahead for them as it’s only been a few months since they’ve opened their doors at Tekka and they’re already doing so well.
Worth a try - a better bet than random generic kopi stalls that often serve ashy concoctions nowadays.
I decided to eat with my hand but be reminded to eat with your right hand as the left one is destined for other worldly duties. I have to take the posed picture above with my left hand because the right index finger is required to press the shutter.
Boneless and skinless chicken chunks were smothered under a rich and creamy sauce.
This plate of chicken chop noodle would be quite promising if not for the texture of the noodle. From the taste of the fried chicken to the tossing sauce, everything is outstanding by my standard.
If only the noodle is springier with a crunchy bite, this could easily be my favorite.

We noticed some good looking hummus and eggplant sitting in the countertop's glass case at Artichoke, so we grabbed a plate of each, along with other tasty treats like their white beans and fennel as well as a smoked falafel salad.

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.

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.
