Beng Poh Seafood 明宝海鲜小厨 @ Beng Poh Eating House

I have been to Good Year Seafood Village with my family often and have noticed Beng Poh Eating House just next door. However, Beng Poh seemed to lack crowd each time we were there so we didn’t bother trying their food until Uncle Smart posted his lunch photos on Facebook. Steamed shark’s head, that’s what … Continue reading

Eng’s Vs Eng’s Back To Back – Noodle or Mee?

As promised in my previous post, I ate at both shops yesterday. The first stop was Eng’s (Original) Wantan Noodle at 287, Tanjong Katong Road. We had parked behind the shop so we went in by the back door. Battle of Eng’s Noodle vs Eng’s Mee: Eng’s Wantan Noodle [Original] 榮雲吞麵 [正宗] (by Lao Huo Tang) … Continue reading

Eng’s Wantan Noodle But Which Now That There’s Two?

I’ve heard a lot about this supposedly famous Eng’s Wantan Noodle when I returned to Singapore in 2013 (after 10 years abroad) and its super fiery chili sauce. I have eaten it during their days in Dunman Food Centre in the 1980s but not when they moved into a shophouse at 287 Tanjong Katong Road. … Continue reading

Roast Paradise Hakka Noodle 烧味天堂客家面 (Home-made Hakka Noodle Recipe)

I had wanted to eat the famous KL-style charsiu siuyoke fan (roast meats with rice) but the hawker told us (in queue) that the charsiu is sold out and the next batch would be available at around 2pm. Many dropped out of the line but I decided to stay after seeing a customer in front … Continue reading

Ah Lim Bak Chor Mee (Jalan Tua Kong)

Bak Chor Mee (肉脞面) or BCM for short, is a staple street food in Singapore. You can be sure that if one stall (selling any food) is successful, there will be many copy cats using the same or similar name punctuated with “original” or stories of some relations linked either through blood or previous employment. … Continue reading

McDonald’s Breakfast? It Can Happen!

I went to Valerie’s earlier than usual as she had to attend to some work and when I arrived she was about to order breakfast from McDonald’s. “Hotcakes, mom?” “No, I’ll have a Double Quarter Pounder.” “Oh, that’s one of the regular items and only available after 11am.” “Hmmm… What other items do they have?” … Continue reading

Ampang Niang Tou Fu East Coast

Last Monday could not be any more blue… TJ was (still is) ill with no conclusive diagnosis from the doctors we visited. The first doctor said TJ likely has false measles – Roseola, sometimes called Sixth Disease or baby measles, which is characterised by a high fever, followed by a pink-red raised or flat rash. … Continue reading

24 Karat Edible Gold Dust Brownie

24 Karat Edible Gold Dust Brownie from Chalk Farm, a cake company in Singapore. Don’t worry, it didn’t cost me an arm or leg. A kilo cost S$60 and this chunk was one of the 12 slices so it cost me only S$5. That said, how was the taste? Like any good old brownie should! … Continue reading

Yan Ji Wei Wei Seafood Soup 炎记威威食品

We were on our way to Malacca, Malaysia to shoot the Malacca Straits Mosque but before that, we needed some foreign exchange and lunch. Steven said let’s go to Woodlands Centre a stone’s throw away from the immigration checkpoint, “There’s a great fish & seafood soup stall in the hawker centre that you may like”. … Continue reading
