katong laksa singapore

Every self respecting person with Peranakan roots will tell you that the best laksa to be had is made by their grandmother, mother or themselves. I think in my generation we all cheat with ready made paste or we vacuum pack our mother’s freshly made rempah (spice paste) along with homemade belacan. Visiting friends are […]

This is a belated post and the restaurant has since gone on to garner one Michelin star. I liked the food here, but have many friends who didn’t. I think the flavours and tastes were well distilled, but the execution still feels like a work in progress. Well, I later learned that chef Han was […]

I’ve been away for so long, there isn’t a particular place I turn to for birthday cakes. A friend got me a cake from Edith Patisserie and I’m not a convert. It’s variations of all butter cream cakes which reminds me of the old days when cakes were made with good old buttercream and everything […]

I followed Singapore’s National Heritage Board Heritage Trail app to discover that alot of my parents favourite old school spots were just walking distance from each other. Several of these stops were on the Balestier trail with the exception of Galicier and Kway’s popiah. From Malay kuehs to old school white loaves of bread, old […]

My friend returned three times in two weeks to have this nasi lemak and the extra side order of otah ($8.50!) and the chicken set for $12.80. It made me want to check it out to find out if it’s worth the price tag. I’ve heard many people rave about it… well it’s good, but […]

I’ve walked and driven by Fat Lulu’s many times and always thought what a cute name. I didn’t know what the menu was like – BBQ with an Asian twist, and was pleasantly surprised by the modest and simple menu with specials written on their chalk board. Some days, I come here just for the […]

I really enjoyed my first dinner over theatre “If we Dream too long” by And So Forth. Set in the 1960s based on local writer Goh Poh Seng’s novel. The food was good, but I found moving through each scene to different rooms a little disruptive in that performance. Regardless, I love the concept of […]

seng's noodle bar singapore

I’m falling behind the blog again these days with lots of interesting meetings and projects of late. Love the details on this spoon and the tile tables! (Chong Wen Ge Café down the street from the noodle bar!) WL and I never got to catch up in Paris despite so many (half hearted) attempts to […]

This is my friend Oli’s favourite restaurant. Chicken collagen hotpot, and what the Japanese call “beauty hotpot”. This pile of gelatinous white block melts into stock for cooking your meats and vegetables. It was interesting but a tad too salty for me, but I’d have it every once in a while, you get the option […]

I’ve known Caroline since I was 18 way before she got into the home decor business. She always had immaculate taste in accessories, makeup, clothes etc. The creative spark extended to home furnishings. I went with her to sales and she threw lots of intimate gatherings to get rid of the overflow and supply of […]
