Nasi lemak @ Madas nasi lemak

Nasi lemak is possibly my favourite local breakfast, tied with soft boiled eggs and kaya toast. There is something about the combination of flavours and texture of nasi lemak that makes it so great. Salty, sweet, crunchy, chewy. The dish...

Kolo mee @ Lin yu mei sarawak laksa & kolo mee

As previously stated, I’m a huge fan of kolo mee, after visiting Kuching several times for work. I was alerted to this hawker stall at Haig Rd market serving Sarawak kolo mee and laksa, by a friend that lives nearby....

Fishball noodles @ Shen ji teochew kway teow fishball noodle soup

After my favourite fish ball noodles shop moved to fairer pastures up north, I have been searching earnestly for a replacement and I think I have finally found it. Either I am looking in the wrong places, or its rare...

Wanton mee @ Wanton mee

Not the most original name for a wanton mee stall. I believe when it first opened it was attached to the tanjong rhu brand or gave the impression it was at least (not the first time I have seen this...

Salted vegetable and duck soup @ Peking roasted chicken rice

I’ve been to this stall many times for their roast chicken, but I have never ventured into the right side of their menu, the herbal soups. Today was a surprisingly cool day by Singapore standards, 25 degrees, a soup kind...

Roti prata kosong @ Famous crispy prata

I never knew this coffee shop existed, tucked away, a block behind the bustling joo chiat road. I was running an errand at a business nearby when I saw it. At this time, 1pm, the prata stall was the only...

Sambhar rice @ Chaska

I had to go see a specialist at Parkway East (nothing serious) and while I was waiting for my results I was getting hangry. Walking out of the hospital, the first thing I saw was this coffee shop directly opposite....

Yong tau foo soup @ Soon kee yong tau fu

Yong tau foo (YTF) is one of those few hawker dishes that can make all the lists of healthy choice hawker meals, from government, state newspaper, and of course online listicle. Now as this meal is a multiple choice adventure...

Thunder tea rice @ Thunderbolt tea

I have previously professed my appreciation for thunder tea rice but it is not a common hawker dish, at least in the east, so when I see it I must try it.

Beef kway teow @ Lagoon leng kee beef kway teow

I was drawn to this stall by the appearance of the old school sign. Vintage looking signs give off an appearance of the stall having survived a long time and thus the standard of the food must be half-decent. Beef...

Spring onion pancake @ Yong he eating house

Yong He Eating House is a semi-famous 24 hour coffee shop that sell taiwanese fair, or so I was told by a friend. I was killing time in Geylang, so I popped in for a quick snack. The spring onion...

Dim sum @ $1.30 dim sum

Yum cha, or dim sum, was my first real introduction to authentic chinese food. It became a regular saturday morning ritual for my friends and I, soaking up the friday night with a mix of steamed and fried dumplings, served...

Bak chor mee @ Hua kee noodles

There is nothing special about this bak chor mee, it is just a good old honest meal. The epitome of comfort food. Everything is done well.

Chilli ban mee @ KL traditional chilli ban mee

I noticed this stall tucked away in the corner of a coffee shop as I was headed towards the SSVP shop on geylang rd for some thrift shopping. I am assuming the KL traditional chilli ban mee stands for ‘Kuala...

Ayam penyet @ Warung 786 ibu

Ayam penyet is not your everyday meal, the calorie count must be outrageous. So when you do decide to eat it, it must be good. Why waste precious calories on sub-standard food?? With this in mind, I decided to treat...

Nasi lemak @ Madas nasi lemak

Nasi lemak is possibly my favourite local breakfast, tied with soft boiled eggs and kaya toast. There is something about the combination of flavours and texture of nasi lemak that makes it so great. Salty, sweet, crunchy, chewy. The dish...

Soto ayam @ Inspirasi

On this rainy, overcast January day I found myself in Bedok MRT (undertaking a carousell exchange). Rainy days tend to elicit thoughts of something warm and soupy. Walking into the fenced off for COVID, Bedok Interchange hawker centre, the sign...

Bitter gourd soup @ Yu pan kway teow fish soup

I don’t have much to say about this soup. It’s simple. It’s delicious. It’s as healthy as a hawker dish can be. You have to be a fan of bitter gourd to appreciate it. The portions are generous. The soup...

Ban mee @ King of ban mee

First of all going into the coffee shop at 4pm for lunch leaves you little options, you take what you can get from whatever stall is open. Today that stall was “King of Ban Mee”.

Lor mee @ Lu jia (by xing long)

This was my first time eating out post-COVID isolation. Emerging from being locked in a bedroom and into the hustle and bustle of as hawker centre was quite a difference. The sounds and smells can be over-stimulating for the newly...

Economical bee hoon @ Hup lee fried bee hoon and nasi lemak

Economical bee hoon is the Singapore equivalent of an English big breakfast, at a fraction of the cost. Its my go to hangover meal with everything you need to sort you out: grease, carbs, and veggies.

Wanton mee @ Ah kiat wanton mee

I found myself back in Bedok North on a Carousell meetup adventure. He asked to meet at 538 market and food centre. This was a hawker centre I had never visited before, so naturally I was excited. I could eat...

Shredded chicken hor fun @ Bei-ing wanton noodles

This new stall is their second foray into the f&b business, the original located at roxy square. It appears to be the same menu as the original, which is definitely not a bad thing. The ambience of this coffee shop...

Laksa @ Janggut laksa

There have been many words written on the laksa wars of katong (here, here, and my favourite here). I am fascinated by the history of the hawkers and their stories. I have previously reviewed one of the roxy laksa

Wanton mee @ Dunman road char siew wan ton mee

Sitting at dunman food centre gives the impression you are in a war zone. Metres and metres of orange mesh fencing is strewn across the tables and chairs. An orange camouflage against covid-19. Not exactly a pleasant experience any more...

Yong tau foo @ Koo kee yong tow foo mee

I actually had on my mind to eat some soya sauce chicken rice but they must have sold out as they closed a bit earlier today. When your mind and stomach have already settled on something, it can be hard...

Duck rice @ Cheok kee duck rice

If you find yourself at east coast lagoon food centre on a weekday during the day, you will notice that this teochew braised duck stall is insanely popular, in fact it will be the only one with a queue. I’m...
