Best Singapore Food: Red Star Restaurant 红星酒家

Red-Star-Restaurant-红星酒家

It has been hard for me to be dispassionate when writing this post. Emotions and nostalgia gets in the way of objectivity when thinking about Sin Leong 冼良 and Red Star 红星 - these are no ordinary eating places. They are part of the story of Singapore and Singaporeans. Also, the dinner - a large gathering with an extensive unfamiliar menu of half forgotten dishes was Makansutra's largest gathering to date. There were so many different fascinating dishes and dimensions at the dinner, so this is an unusually long post. In trying to do it justice, I hope I am not doing it injustice. Read more.

  1. I felt honour to be able to meet the chef and taste their food. It is something that is hard to come by.

  3. Tsk tsk. It is very cruel to be sharing such a yummy post so late at night! //kidding//

    I love Red Star; we go there often for Dim Sum. Can't beat the traditional push carts! And I know Sin Leong too! But when it was at Marine Parade. I remember going there, but not the food, sadly.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
