One of the highlights of eating back home was Mr Tan’s Kelong, a wooden house on stilts at sea off the coast of Changi and not far from Pulau Ubin island. Thanks to food friend and cook extraordinaire S, we ate our heart out on the freshing seafood and catches of the day. I don’t have […]

Another option for great value, great quality cuts and a very reasonable wine list too. We went for dinner on their first night and I was back for a tasting of their seafood, and can’t wait to return to try the other sides of Mac n Cheese and the corn mash that I have heard […]

We made scampi penne and here’s what we did with the heads and shells-maximising on the flavours of the sea, we made use of every part so that none of the good stuff go to waste. And as you can see mascarpone (and often creme fraiche) is our best friend, and they kind of hang […]

This place is buzzing every night and if you’re a big party, make sure you have reservations made in advance otherwise you can forget about getting a table here. Local beer is drunk out of bowls here with beautiful Chinese type – not unlike how the French have their cider. Seafood is a specialty here, […]
