Red House Seafood Restaurant 小红楼

It was the early 80s and I was out on an official date. The boyfriend then brought me to a “kampong” feel seafood restaurant called Xiao Hong Lou (小红楼) meaning Little Red Pavilion. I had always thought their chilli crabs to be the best and liked it even better than that of Kheng Luck, a … Continue reading

Old Geylang – Exotic Or Erotic Comestibles?

As a gourmand, I am always hungry to try new eateries and food. While the restaurants or cuisine may not be exactly au courant to the rest of the foodie community (non-bloggers inclusive), they still seem ‘modernistic’ to me as I am not up-to-date with our local makan scene. A newbie at food blogging (I … Continue reading

Old Town White Coffee 旧街场白咖啡

Kay and I have been searching the illusive slice fish hor fun that Lily was talking about somewhere near Chun Tin Road. We drove two rounds and couldn’t find the shop.

Royal Rumble – Malay Cuisine

Malay Cuisine is quite extensive. To name a few popular ones, there’s the Mee Rebus (boiled noodles), Mee Soto, Nasi Lemak, Sayur Lodeh and Satay.

Coin Prata

I have a weird appetite. It seems like the more I eat, the more (and faster) hungry I get. One dish meals aren’t able to satisfy me and I usually have a couple of items. If I had only a bowl of noodles for dinner, you’d know I’ll be ransacking the fridge in no time. … Continue reading
