The First Hawker Cze Cha Buffet
(Reservations are required!)

Times are still tough for players in the F&B trade, folks still eat out but budgets are getting thinner and many still don’t spend unnecessary monies on transport to visit places just for food. So I asked some hawkers at Gluttons Bay, “What are you planning...MORE
It’s Mee Time
Admittedly, a lot of us have some extra time this Covid season. All those pubbing, large gathering parties and travels, even to Johor Bahru, among others, are turned into spare hours. Clever alternative ideas abound- be a local tourist and go see and do things you’ve never tried or heard...MORE
Peng’s Catering: A Teochew Hideout in Hougang
Hougang is known to be a Teochew enclave, harking back to the old Kangkar wharf days (now a part of Sengkang) where the old Teochew community once thrived in a fishery business. They were known for their unique south Chinese cuisine. But today, ironically, that identity is beginning to thin...MORE
Dear Next Manpower Minister.. Please do not deprive us of manpower oxygen

Pink Candy: Korean Hawker and the Great Outdoors

Stay calm and eat on, or rather stay calmly away from crowds, and eat on at “safer” places, where practical and safe measures are implemented, in this virus pandemic. Open and airy spots are such options and if they offer a “stress relief” menu, carry on munching. This old and eclectic little roof...MORE

The Hue to Go..
Finally, I made it to Hue (read: Hway), the northern, former ancient capital of Vietnam. I’ve always known it would stand head over shoulders above the other usual suspect cities there, by way of experiences. Hue is the food capital of Vietnam and I often wondered why. More noodles, rice...MORE
The Combo-Nonya Restaurant

It would be insane to lock yourself up in this coronavirus situation and deprive yourself of any life. I say, stay alert, be wary and take all the necessary precautions that you already know by now..wash the hands, stay away from crowds and people that don’t look too well...MORE
