Coconut Club: Going Nuts for a $12.80 Nasi Lemak
“What! $12.80 for a plate of nasi lemak! That’s crazy” is the common response about this popular famous coconut sambal rice meal in town. And I’ll add one more today “Huh, did you say he never cooked this dish before this gig? What…!” .One hour before closing on a late and lazy Saturday afternoon, the little café was packed and there was a line out the door. Was this hip...MORE
Kin Khao Restaurant : A Thai Star in San Francisco
I wanted to review this Thai restaurant not just because they proudly tout a one Michelin Star award but, I needed to know if the yardsticks used for ranking a Thai eatery (or any eatery of a distinct culinary heritage for the matter) is the same around the world.

I am no food chauvinist and I appreciate all the different versions for what it is...MORE

Lucky8 Restaurant: Lost Dim Sum
If you don’t often shuffle about this catacomb of a mall in the heart of Orchard Road, you won’t realise there’s this gem of a Chinese restaurant. Even if you do, it’s hard to notice just what is so special about the menu. Flip the pages and it’s the same old fancy delights, from roast duck to abalones and exquisite seafood, found in their leather bound, big picture menu. But...MORE
