Café Mariam: The Freedom Briyani

He has a certain attitude, a sense of anger in him, and it’s all about his food culture. It’s the kind of food people I like to engage, learn and understand. He’s worked with the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Marco Pierre White and gigged in cruise ship kitchens and even moulded sushi and ramen in his 20 year career in the culinary industry. But here, in this crammed...MORE

Chong’s Yong Tau Foo: “Chiong” Yong Tau Foo”
If failure stops you, then you are not much of an entrepreneur. The hard core ones are not even worried about their skill and knowledge level when they want to make things better for themselves and the world at large.

Extremely Comforting Porridge
There are days when you don’t feel like eating anything despite your hunger. You have this notion that nothing much will please you and these are the days when you turn to … comfort food. They are usually not photogenic (instagramable in mod speak) but will lift your day, albeit for a few hours at least. Some resort to a good ol’ cheeseburger (that’s what Ironman aka Tony Stark aka...MORE
Uglylicious Cha Kway Teow
The first time I took the late Anthony Bourdain on a cha kway teow spin at a stall in Bedok some 8 years back, he glanced, took that first bite and, in vintage Bourdain style, gushed “How can something so ugly be so good”.
