When you walk down Soi 19 directly opposite Platinum Fashion Mall in Bangkok, you cannot miss the big loud yellow banner stretching high across the road shouting "NO BRANCH IN SINGAPORE".

I used to get my soya sauce chicken noodle fix at Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken & Rice until this happened - in July 2016, the good stall won the honour of being the world's first Michelin starred hawker stall and the world's least expensive Michelin meal. We are extremely happy for Mr Chan the owner, but it also means that we have to wait one to two hours for our usual soya sauce chicken noodle fix 😂

When I heard that Mr Yap of the famous Macpherson Bak Chor Mee (minced meat noodles) is considering retiring, I rushed down to the old stall at the junction of Opal Crescent and Serangoon Road at the first opportunity.
新加坡麦波申肉脞面是一个二十多年的老字号. 真材实料, 用料十足. 老板功夫足到, 面烫的刚刚好. 有弹性. 酱料是重口味的. 汤头浓浓的, 够鲜甜. 汤里料又多. 老板有想退休了. 要吃快快去吃. 到新加坡非食不可. 在 Opal Crescent 和 Serangoon Road 的交界处.

Majestic Peking Duck stall at Makansutra's Gluttons Bay opened with much media fanfare last month (Jul 2016) - touted as the world's first hawker stall to offer this iconic Chinese dish normally served in upmarket restaurants.

Whenever I am in Batu Pahat (Johor), I will swing by my favourite min chang kueh 面煎粿 stalls for these thin, crispy versions of the traditional Teochew snack. Other than in Batu Pahat, I am not sure where else I can get this type of min chang kueh.
我喜欢这个薄薄的香脆香脆的面煎粿. 蔡先生的小档口在新山峇株巴辖 Jalan Penjaja 3 大杯水咖啡店里面. 蔡先生卖面煎粿, 卖了20多年. 功夫十足. 一盘6块钱. 有到峇株巴辖的话一定要试试.

People from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia are familiar with satay - that Southeast Asian style kebab of marinated meat skewered with skinny wooden sticks and grilled over red hot charcoal. Most of us would have satay for dinner or supper, but have you eaten satay for breakfast?

Whatever one might feel about the Pontian style of wanton mee, no one can deny that it is the best known style of wanton noodles from Johor. Beyond Johor, there are many shops and stalls serving Pontian style wanton mee in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
Sometimes, all we want is something relatively light and yet still tasty. Yong tau foo fits the bill for me. Here's one simple yong tau foo at ABC Bak Kut Teh stall 天香來肉骨茶 in Fong Yem Coffee Shop in Johor Jaya that I like.

Today, we lunched with friends at Kitchen Stories 美乐厨坊 at the Rosmerah section of Taman Johor Jaya. It's one of Frankie's favourites and his regular lunch place. I also bumped into another Johor Kaki reader Alex who reminded me that he had recommended Kitchen Stories to me over two years ago. Yeah lor 😛 Glad that I am here, finally 😄
