The $13.80 Roast Duck War
It’s no quack. But that’s what a few roast duck stalls are offering for the whole fowl for these days, give and take a couple of dollars. I was told about a $15 roast duck take-out only stall in Chinatown by another hawker, Melvin Chew of Jin Ji Kway Chap. The social media post I made generated 325,000 views with 3500 shares in 24hours. Then, another foodie whispered “hey, there’s...MORE
Kueh Ho Jiak: Kueh Very Good...
Firstly, their catchy name was a smart marketing ploy, the use of Hokkien term positioned in a prettily designed sweet stall (literally) was very curious. Then I was told they had never been in the business before and that they collected recipes from the internet and tweaked them on the fly. Lastly, the menu touts traditional stuff like ang ku kueh but nothing on the kueh shelf looks anything traditional....MORE
Lazy Big Chop: Maybe a Cze Cha Bistro
When word is that this is some kind of a “cze cha bistro”, it automatically piqued my interest. Questions fly in my head- is it modernist local fare, progressive, or just a brand gimmick to hawk alcohol with the usual stir fries, and of course, is it overly expensive. Cze cha meals are the greatest family makan institution in Singapore. This is where they head to when everyone cannot agree...MORE
Aw’s Signature Minced Pork Noodles: Aw-some Bak Chor Mee
He claimed to be inspired by a bak chor mee recipe video I posted online some time back. But as I demolished a bowl of his “signature” noodles, I realise how much more there was is the dish and just how humble this young gen hawker is. When I probed, it revealed this former police officer of 10 years, looked forward to his day off- just to cook for his...MORE
The food, the fad and the oily, at Geylang Serai
I have to admit that this year’s Hari Raya bazaars around the Geylang Serai area are moving the game up a notch. Can’t say it’s for the better or worse. For starters, the fare offered has gone “hipster” which has bad connotations for me, I much prefer the term progressive and fast casual. But, a walk through just a small segment of this fair and you won’t realise it’s an...MORE
Top 50 World Street Food Masters Award
Hawkers or street food cooks today are seen increasingly as vendors of food culture, especially in countries that have a rich heritage street food history.  They lend a culinary brand to a place, offer a dish that is a part of their culture, may it be old or progressive. In the new world of travel and lifestyle experiences, these heritage street food vendors are very sought after by new age...MORE
World Street Food Goodness in Manila (2017)
When I first saw and ate without a blink of hesitation, I knew I had to bring that Soi Lum, an “ah boling” of sorts to our World Street Food Congress (WSFC) in Manila. The extraordinary element here is not just the smooth, soft gumminess with a flawlessly balance bean paste inside (by way of texture and sweetness), but the flecks of dried candied chrysanthemum leaves over the very light...MORE
