The Republic Of Food

When the call came for an invitation to have me play the leader of the Underground Food Club (UFC) in a local makan movie, it took me all of 10 seconds to take it on. Check- I have no movie actor background in my portfolio- TV show host, cook, World Street Food Congress curator, food court designer and operator, writer, publisher- yes, but no acting gigs. So director Kelvin...MORE

You Die Die Must Try this Hae Mee
I agreed with him when he said there aren’t many good prawn mee hawkers showing up of late. So Dixon Fong, took all of two days, to figure out a recipe and set up shop here in the eastern boondocks, and now, our observations, no longer apply anymore. A chef turned hawker like Dixon, knows his stuff and you can taste all the respect and diligence in his bowl of...MORE
KL Style Chee Cheong Fun
Each time I come across a career-switch young hawker, I get very curious as to why and what. Some gave up lucrative advertising executive job to sell nasi lemak, another ditched her marketing position to hawk fishball noodles and the list goes on. It is very encouraging as it breeds a new lot of thinking and determined hawkers, not just those who have no choice. Now there’s Ms Yong Yean...MORE
Celebrate Singapura in a plate
This is an occasional series that peers back at once iconic and famous eateries that may be lost in today’s wired generation. So here’s the uglier side of social media in our makan society. If your restaurant is famous and well loved before, say 2005, chances are that the finger-type pad generation today may not know about it. Worse, if your food is not presented Instagram-pretty format, they’ll shun it...MORE
Sambal Porridge Anyone?
Our Muslim friends here have it good when it comes to makan. For a long time, they are sticklers to traditions. The rendang you get at any traditional makcik (auntie) nasi padang stall is of a certain quality, matched in class to the original versions in Indonesia. They also now have halal Thai, Japanese, Italian, burgers and pizzas plus dim sum restaurants even Vietnamese pho. But that’s not even scratching...MORE
Claypot Nice
I made four trips to four different claypot rice spots this week with a mind to tell you about, at least, two. Some are suggestions from good intentioned friends and other were slickly written online reviews with invisible hashtag terms buried behind each sentence that said #eatatthisone. I narrowed down to two but the difference was so great I decided to just blast about the best and forget the rest.
Smokin' Good
It’s difficult telling most overseas visitors just what heritage hawker street food in Singapore really is, if they have not been here. The overwhelming state of street food hawking around the world is really about a food cart or table by the street, marinating and cooking with the “flavours and aromas of street pollution”. Tell them that street food in Singapore is a comfort cuisine culture that has been preserved...MORE
