Y.E.S. 93.3FM DJs Xie Jiafa 谢家发 & Lin Peifen 林佩芬.

If you tune in to MediaCorp’s Y.E.S. 93.3FM on Wed, September 30, 2009 from 6pm to 7pm, you’ll get to hear me and Hungry Cow speaking in mangled Mandarin on radio! On Sunday night, we joined DJs Jiafa and Peifen for dinner at House of Seafood @ 180. Together with the other guests, we made up the tasting panel for the foodie segment called 美食鉴定团. (more…)

Teriyaki chicken, S$5.50.

Teriyaki chicken, S$5.50.

This was Rick’s choice when we were lunching at Old Airport Road Food Centre. He was browsing the stalls when one of the signboards caught his attention: Holy Grill.

Holy smokes, what a witty name! Amused, he ordered the teriyaki chicken.

Morale of story: Use a catchy and memorable name for your business to stand out from the crowd! (more…)

Fried oyster omelette, S$5.00.

Fried oyster egg, S$5.00

I was here to review their signature fried Hokkien prawn mee, but couldn’t resist trying the oyster egg 蚝煎 as well.

Overall, it was very likeable, which means a lot considering I’m not a fan of oyster omelette. The eggs are fried till crisp, and the starch mixture isn’t too gooey. There’s about 4 plump oysters for the cheapest order of S$5. The seasoning is a wee bit spicy, and if you dip it into the accompanying piquant chilli sauce, it’s even more appetizing. (more…)

On the same day I bought muffins from Bliss Haven, I also checked out the 枪摊 Fried Hokkien mee stall (the stallowner is a single mom with a teenage son). I do enjoy this series for its entertainment value (the episode where that tattooed dude Jason withdrew was damn drama, right??!!). And even though recipes aren’t revealed, we can still pick up some cooking tips from the chef.

Anyway, back to the food. I rather enjoyed it. It’s the dark sauce stewed type of fried Hokkien mee. I think the selling point is the noodles. The texture is unique, different from the usual flat Hokkien yellow noodles. It’s soft but QQ (al dente) and bouncy at the same time. There’s also no strong alkaline taste. Quite similar to udon, actually. This kind of noodle isn’t commonly found; mentor chef Eric Teo made special arrangements for it to be supplied to this stall. (more…)

People say there’s no such thing as cheap and good. Guess what? There’s this famous yong tau foo stall in Bedok South Food Centre that’s really cheap and good! Where else can you buy yong tau foo that starts from $1.50 an order? (more…)

Howdy, folks! Sorry I’ve been MIA. Don’t worry, I’m still eating well. 😀 It’s just that I’ve been too busy to edit photos and post them up!

On a weekday a fortnight ago, knowing I had to be out running errands all day, I wanted to travel light. The last thing I needed was a bulky DSLR. But a hunch made me slip the compact digicam into my bag.

True enough, I discovered a new foodie gem just when I wasn’t expecting to. After picking up a book order in Killiney Road, I was walking back towards Orchard Road when I detected the aroma of freshly fried epok-epok. Mmm…! Time for afternoon tea break!
