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, Best Char Siew, char siew, Jalan besar

Char – Char Siew Like No Other

Char caused quite a stir when it first launched on Guillemard Road. 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 with any sauce. … 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

Forture Seafood Steam Boat – A Torture Indeed

Dinner at Forture Seafood Steam Boat restaurant on 27th March 2015 is officially the worst meal I had in quite a long while. The food was bland, overcooked in most instances and service was non-existence. It was like stepping into a taxi after the taxi driver has had many cigarettes in the car with the window closed and having him being rude to you as … Continue reading Forture Seafood Steam Boat – A Torture Indeed

Ban Leong Wah Hoe Seafood – Addictive Prawn Paste Chicken Wings

There are many types of chicken wings. There is the buffalo wings from the US, spicy wings from UK, BBQ wings from …..er….Australia? You get what I mean……but none of the chicken wing variants can claim to be a country’s favourite food. The exception is Singapore, where Prawn Paste Chicken Wings is the country’s favourite (according to some trusted surveys).

Koh Grill and Sushi Bar – The Home of “Amazingly Good” Sushi‏

If you are a self-respecting Singapore-based sushi eater,  you should have tried or at least heard of Shiok!!! Maki. It has put Koh Grill and Sushi Bar onto the culinary map of this little Island. “Shiok” is Singaporean slang for “amazingly good”. This avocado, charcoal grilled eel sushi roll that is topped off with lightly torched Salmon and Japanese mayonnaise is indeed amazing. The smokiness of … Continue reading Koh Grill and Sushi Bar – The Home of “Amazingly Good” Sushi‏

Marutama – The Chicken Broth Ramen‏

Marutama Ramen still remains my favourite ramen joint in Singapore…. maybe it is because it is one of the first joints I visited. The chicken broth (toripaitan broth) is tasty but not overwhelming, not to mention the melt in your mouth chargrilled char siu and perfectly cooked thin and springy (Hakata-styled) noodles. The branch in Liang Court is basic and functional. It is dimly lit … Continue reading Marutama – The Chicken Broth Ramen‏
