Pavillion, Notes of the Contemporary Cantonese Cuisine along Craig Road

Singapore  is one city where many great food is left undiscovered, and hidden. Despite its small size, restaurants, cafes, and eateries are almost everywhere. Even in the quieter areas of Outram where most of the crowd are the executives in the area, this is my third take to the Neil Road-Tanjong Pagar area for another

Get away from the heat with servings of snow ice and fruity yoghurt at Frost Bites!

When it comes to desserts, I do love my sweet stuff. Why, even now I am very tempted to step into the kitchen and whip up a batch of cream puffs and eclairs even with no prior experience. And all this even with me munching away at Christmas cookies (ok fine, Christmas is not here

Zhen Zhen Porridge – A long queue, a long wait for the simplest and most delightful meal.

Last week, I visited Maxwell Food Centre to try out Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice. I was also very keen to tickle my tastebuds with Zhen Zhen Porridge but because of the horrendously long queue, I chose to wait and by the time I finished my chicken rice (whose queue was also very long), the

Lim Kee Goreng Pisang, Crispy, Juicy, Sweet and Exciting!

Goreng Pisang. Its very hard to come across good goreng pisang these days. Known throughout the English world as Fried Banana Fritters, the lovely little homesnack should come in a crispy skin with a wholesome and juicy interior that shrieks of sweet banana goodness after getting past the first crunch. I was at Maxwell Food

Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice. Is it Singapore’s Best?

I admit. The last time I probably been to Maxwell Food Centre was when I was just a kid. Other than its popular name and its locality near Shenton Way, it all seemed vague to me. But I have heard of Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice situated within the hawker centre. Presumably, it is regarded

The Blue Ginger Restaurant, Around The Table We Gather

Singapore is uniquely a mix of all types of people. Myself for example, by race I am Eurasian, but by culture I am diversified. I am a Eurasian, Hainanese and Peranakan altogether in one package. My Straits Chinese roots come from my Paternal Grandmother’s side, and since young I have been exposed to dishes like
