Best_Singapore_Ah_Pui_Tiong_Bahru_Satay_Pearl's_Hill_Cafe

And so, from now onwards, I shall measure all pork satay against Ah Pui Tiong Bahru Satay at 195 Pearl's Hill Cafe. It's not that I am a satay bigot, but it's just that I cannot un-taste what I had tasted 😂

Prawnaholic_Prawn_Mee_Pasir_Ris_Central_Hawker_Centre

Buddy DJ is a big fan of Prawnaholic stall at Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre, so we met up there this morning. DJ was right, I was quite blown away by Prawnaholic's modern prawnographic take on our humble old prawn noodle.

Nasi_Ulam_Singapore

Today, went to check out the newly opened Xin Tekka food court which is just steps from Rochor MRT station. I like the 3 Nyonya dishes I tried at Casa Bom Vento Express including one of Singapore's rare nasi ulam, and it was a good one 😋.

Famous Joo Siah Bak Koot Teh in Jurong East Singapore West

Joo_Siah_Bak_Koot_Teh_Jurong_East

Over a decade ago, we used to go trekking at Bukit Timah Hill on weekends and then reward ourselves with a hearty good lunch. One of the most enjoyable places to replenish our energies was Joo Siah Bak Koot Teh at Yuhua Market & Hawker Centre. That was long before I started Johor Kaki blog, so this post is to make up for not recording one of my favourite old lunch haunts.

Geylang_Durian_36

Kok_Kee_Wanton_Mee_Jurong

Mosques_Singapore_River

Some of us may have noticed and wondered about the four old grand mosques around Singapore River, especially as there is no sizeable Muslim community living near to the mosques today.

Sarawak_Kolo_Mee

Sarawak Delicacy Laksa & Kolo Mee was one of the stalls recommended by Johor Kaki friends. So, I came down to BLK 204 in Bedok to give it a try 😄 It's very easy to locate the stall at Shi Wei Tian 食为天 kopitiam, just 5 minutes walk from Bedok Interchange.

Boat_Quay_Singapore
Boat Quay 2020
Today, from Boat Quay to Clarke Quay, Singapore River is a river of leisure where the world come to dine and party. Italian, Spanish, American, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Sichuan and other international cuisine jostle for the tourist and lifestyle dollar.

Singapore River has humbler beginnings. 


Food Legacy & History of Singapore's Lost Years 1389 - 1819

Singapore_River_Raffles
Singapore's trajectory from its founding by Sang Nila Utama in 1299 to the metropolis that it is today was not a straight line. There were 430 lost years between 1389 and 1819 before Raffles first stepped foot on the proverbial fishing village. What happened during the 430 lost years, and since this is a food blog, did they leave any food legacy for us today?

Haig_Road_Sarawak_Kolo_Mee

Asking my friends on Facebook where to get good Sarawak kolo mee in Singapore, several buddies pointed me to the Lin Yu Mei 林玉梅 stall in Haig Road Hawker Centre. In fact, Lin Yu Mei was the most mentioned stall, so I am starting my Sarawak kolo mee exploration in Singapore here.

Met up with buddies to chill over drinks and some grub at LAUT NOA gastrobar @ 17 Stanley Street. Not the top of my mind type of joint initially but turned out it's really cool and I enjoyed it.

Bollywood Biryani Singapore
Growing up in Singapore, I am accustomed to and very fond of the briyani here. While tracing the origins of Singapore hawker food, I was surprised that briyani in Singapore is connected to the Singapore River and birth of the Port of Singapore.
