Trotting on with Black Vinegar..
I think many today can’t really mentally string together the flavour profile of what old ginger, sesame oil, black vinegar and black or brown sugar can do to meat, especially pig trotters. Mayonnaise with wasabi- checked, truffles with olive oil- ticked, lime with sambal- no problemo, but not this old Cantonese icon, which is kind of slowly but surely disappearing from Singapore’s makan radar. I sense there is a large...MORE
The Original Sin is Back at Sin Kee’s
By now, the lines should be blurred, or that not many especially among the Gen New really cares too much about the authenticity of Hainanese Chicken Rice in Singapore – or that they even know the difference between Cantonese style or how another version is considered halal. Back in the pre COE days when I was learning the now redundant art of drawing thin 1mm lines with sable haired brush...MORE
The Halal Kopitiam is here…
This is a good idea on so many fronts and I can only sit back and watch this concept spin its way to the bank or out of control. It baffles me for the longest time why there isn’t a serious attempt to take the beloved national toast and kaya breakfast spots officially Halal.

I saw so many teething problems during the first four trips, like with ventilation, kitchen flow effectiveness and seating capacity limitations, among some. But the owners, both Edward Chia and Danny Loong felt “we are now kind of ready and on track to fix the kinks”. Timbre+ is their...MORE
World Street Food Congress 2016: Record Breaking Event

It’s now reflection time, after being overwhelmed from the wild and humbling experience and support at our first international World Street Food Congress 2016, held at Bonifacio Global City, Manila from 20-24 April. We present some facts and figures that makes this World Street Food Congress movement that much more inspiring to us with the support shown at the recent event.  

It was a gated but free entry event and yet records of...MORE

Red Hornbill Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee
It’s hard to find good Malaysian food in Singapore. I’m not sure why, since the two countries share so much in terms of people and food culture. But some Malaysian dishes are simply made much better in Malaysia than Singapore, mainly because you can’t get the exact same ingredients. One of these things is Sarawak Laksa - notable for its incredibly complex spice base which seems to be a closely...MORE
