A group of heavyweight foodie friends from Hong Kong came to visit and wanted to eat all day for the 12 hours they were in Macau. I put together an itinerary and took them around a rented coach to stuff their faces for half a day. Because it was Chinese New Year holidays, quite a […]

Macau like Hong Kong have plenty of local diners/cafés that serve up typical dishes of pork chop buns, instant noodles with spam and egg to an assorted range of noodles from deep fried pork chops (Asian rendition of schnitzel) to curry beef noodles with tripe and wanton/shrimp roe noodles. There are also local confectionary buns […]

We recently found our favourite neighbourhood noodle shop, just a 10 minute walk from our place, and the best part is they open till 3am and do delivery as well! Absolutely perfect for chefs who get home from work no earlier than 1130pm. The soups here are hearty, rich and thick and the handmade pulled […]

After spending the day catching up with the blog and watching a documentary […]

One of the things I miss most about Singapore is Bak Chor Mee and I don’t think I can find breakfasts like these anywhere else in the world. I ate 4 bowls at simpang bedok right by my place and chanced upon another pretty good bowl of noodles at North Bridge Road, opposite Bugis junction. […]

The chatter on weibo 微博,twitter’s Chinese counterpart says that this restaurant does the best gongbao chicken 宫保鸡丁 in the city. While it was a well executed dish, this restaurant actually caters more to the Northern palates, adapting famous Sichuan dishes to make them more accessible. It probably wasn’t the best I’ve had, but was pretty […]

At 1949 Noodle Loft. There are hundreds of thousands of noodle places all over Beijing, hole-in-the-wall places, stalls in dingey alleys and then the accessible expat haunt places. I’ve been too all types and have been ill repeatedly many times, so I’m going to recommend my favourite places that have had me returning. Noodle Bar […]
