It’s time for “Cheng”

It’s about now that we think of eating “cheng-cheng” or soupy, less complex meals to counter and calm the Chinese New Year feasts we tore into last week.

Fried UFO Hor Fun

He refused to serve me as he sold his last portion for the day (at 2pm) and was ready to nurse his cup of kopi-o. “ Please, I heard a lot about your dish and came from far away (I admit, I was lying) to try this. Don’t know when I will be back again”, adding I want to tell...MORE

Hence, I’ll do a pre-opening, pre-emptive review of Five Guys in New York (since I am here) to give you an...MORE

Rian Cheng Porridge- Point-Point Food Culture

If the “ketogens” (the concrete jungle health nut generation that shun carbohydrates)  and the younger meat loving millenials have their way,  then we are seeing the last of such stalls in our midst, especially in hawker centres. Many of the so called hipster hawkers cannot cook enough of , nor understand this dish culture to save their lives at such stalls. Chap...MORE
