Kaiho Sushi – Good Japanese with a Mismatched Price

I am finally at Cuppage Plaza to check out some Japanese restaurants. I have heard that there are many hidden gems tucked in this old-school shopping complex. There is nothing much here apart from Japanese restaurants and Japanese KTVs (adult karaoke joints). Kaiho Sushi, on the 3rd floor, wasn’t quite what I expected to find. It looks like your average basic Japanese restaurant with its … Continue reading Kaiho Sushi – Good Japanese with a Mismatched Price

Keng Eng Kee Salted Egg Yolk Crab KEK Best Crab

Keng Eng Kee – Best Salted Egg Yolk Crab Ever

If you are looking for salted egg yolk crab then you should definitely be heading to Keng Eng Kee Seafood (or KEK) in Alexandra Village. The salted egg yolk sauce is divine. It is rich and flavoursome. The balance of richness and fragrance from melted butter, the saltiness from salted egg yolk and the wholesomeness of evaporated milk make this a sauce to die for. Luckily … Continue reading Keng Eng Kee – Best Salted Egg Yolk Crab Ever

Kok Sen – Outstanding Food in a Horrible Place

Kok Sen on Keong Siak Road came highly recommended by many. It is such a Zi Char institution (Chinese restaurant) that it will be impossible to get a table without reservation even as early as 6.30pm on the weekend. The food is fantastic and there are many great signature dishes that stands out as Singapore’s best. Having said that, the place is unpleasantly dirty, poorly … Continue reading Kok Sen – Outstanding Food in a Horrible Place

Char Geylang Char Siew

Char – Char Siew Like No Other

Char on Guillemard Road caused quite a stir when it first launched 24 months ago. It created two opposing clans, one worshipping it for bringing them the best char siew ever, the other want it to be banished because its “char siew” isn’t char siew. Char siew or char siu is Cantonese barbecue pork and it usually has a red shiny glaze finish and rarely comes … Continue reading Char – Char Siew Like No Other

Dutch Colony Coffee Co. – Top Notch Artisanal Coffee House

I was really excited about going to Dutch Colony Coffee Co. on Frankle Avenue this morning. I have read so much about the incredibly wonderful coffee that they represent. The place has an industrial warehouse design style with a touch of modern chic. The ceiling is raw with exposed wiring, the support structure of the center piece wooden table is made out of steel water pipes and … Continue reading Dutch Colony Coffee Co. – Top Notch Artisanal Coffee House
