You know those famous Peninsula Hong Kong style egg custard mooncakes 香港半島酒店奶黃月餅? These mini mooncakes handmade by Chef Tony Wong, owner chef of East Bistro in Sembawang (Singapore) really reminds me of them :-p Chef Tony Wong was the Head Chef at Lei Gardens Hong Kong and Singapore for decades before opening his own restaurant here last year.

Wee Nam Kee Chicken Rice Singapore 威南记鸡饭 JK1225

Wee-Nam Kee-Chicken-Rice-Singapore-威南记鸡饭

Wee Nam Kee 威南记 is a famous name in Singapore chicken rice. I was a regular at Wee Nam Kee's old Novena Ville branch (now moved to nearby United Square). Partly because my KL friends, whenever they come down to Singapore will say "see you at Wee Nam Kee". I will always just go along as we have never been disappointed.

Kaya Coconut Jam Recipe by Good Morning Nanyang Cafe Singapore JK1223

Kaya-Jam-Recipe-Good-Morning-Nanyang-Coffee-Singapore

I fell in love with the freshly made kaya at Good Morning Nanyang Cafe, the very first time I tasted it. It looks slightly lumpy but is very very feathery soft. This kaya has a layered kind of sweetness and smothering fresh coconut, eggy, pandan aroma like a sophisticated perfume. It's totally different from those mass produced kaya which is pastey like a tub of starch and flat in sweetness (死甜 dead sweet as we say in Chinese).

Singapore Hawker Centres and Culture - Hard Truths about the Future? JK1222

Singapore-Hawker-Centres-Culture

Disclaimer: Before you read any further, please note that I am just a casual observer, a Singaporean man in the street. I have never worked in the food and beverage industry. I have no affiliation with any corporation or government agency. I do write a food blog johorkaki.blogspot.com and in the process interact daily with hawkers, foodies, restaurateurs, and others who know a lot than me about F & B. Bearing in mind my limitations, here are some of my uninformed thoughts on the future of Singapore street food and the hawker scene.

Eastern House of Seafood Delicacy Singapore JK1218 东味鲜美食阁

Eastern-House-Seafood-Delicacy-Singapore-东味鲜美食阁

In Singapore, a lot has been said and written about our hawker centres. We are grateful for hawkers and hawker centres for providing delicious food generally accessible for the public. In my humble opinion, another uniquely Singapore institution deserves mention - the zhi char or cze char 煮炒 shops at the foot of our public housing apartments (known as HDB flats in Singapore).
