    love the cheese fondue there too...!

    Fried Carrot Cake @ Lau Goh Teochew Chye Thow Kway @ Stall 26, Zion Road Food Centre


    The master who fried this is deaf, but that doesn't stop him from taking your orders, and frying up an amazing plate of carrot cake ! well, it is a little 'thin', somewhat like a pancake, but with the fragrant fish sauce, generous chye poh, and well-fried eggs and carrot cake, this is certainly one of the best ard !





    Curry Chicken @ 29 Delights @ #01-29 Bendemeer Food Centre

    This is my fav Curry Chicken of all time. Period. good balance btw coconut milk and curry spices, chicken super tender and falls off bone, potato chunks are pre-fried, so slight crispy on outside...everything is just perfect. All from a little-known stall.





    Famous Sungei Road Trishaw Laksa @ blk 531A Hong Lim Market #02-67


    This is quite a light, soupy laksa but still tastes good .. And for $4, the portion is really quite huge.. For $5.50, they will throw in a crayfish as well

    Tau Kwa Pau (Fried Beancurd Bun) @ (Original) Tau Kwa Pau Duck Rice @ Hock Ann Eating House, 131, East Coast Rd

    One very rare hawker food, this one is one of the two at the junction of Joo Chiat Road and East Coast Road. to be eaten with its tangy chill sauce and duck "lor" (gravy)..

    (sorry abt the white balance... the entire tray was under those kinda yellow lamp that keeps the food warm... so did know how to set the WB... think I overdid the PP for white balance)





    Char Kway Teow @ Lucky Fried Kway Teow #01-30 Old Airport Road Food Centre

    although the Lao Fu Zhi CKT opposite is more famous, many have told me this is better... this was excellent. Slightly on the wet side, the black sauce, the kway teow n noodles, the lap cheong all came together in a way that can only be concocted by a master.. sinful and good !

    PS. Cafe @ Harding Road



    Beef & Mushroom Ragu Tortiglion

    Menu reads "Pan Roast Beef, Shitake and Button Mushroom in Sugarsnaps, Cherry Tomatoes and Tortiglioni" .. it was a really hearty, tasty meal, with the ragu done really well.. and the relaxed, chill out atmosphere of the well-established PS Cafe set in the middle of the greenery of Dempsey Hill simply makes the meal more enjoyable !




    BLT Sandwich

    Crispy bacon, Roma tomato, romaine lettuce, smokey BBQ sauce on toast - fancy stuff an yes, comfort food.. Generous amt of fries too !




    Double Chocolate Cake

    The meal ended with an absolutely decadent and humongous slice of chocolate cake covered with chocolate sludge, and a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream..

    Kosong Prata on top of Egg Prata @ Casuarina Curry @ 126 Casuarina Road

    Have always thought of this as the best and the recent visit confirms it. Crispy on the outside, soft inside with a buttery taste and scent.. No one does Prata like the Casuarina folks...





    Satay Beehoon @ Sin Chew @ Bukit Timah Food Centre #02-162

    This is my all-time favourite Satay Bee Hoon, simply for the fact that it was the first plate I have ever tried in my life, and after all these years, the sauce is still so hauntingly spicy and tasty and fragrant as before ! The only downside to this is that they dun have my fav pork liver, but the fact that they are still my favourite shows how good they are...




    Bak Chor Mee @ High Street Tai Wah Pork Noodle (Bestway Building) @ 12 Prince Edward Road, #01-16 Bestway Building

    opened by the brother of the more famous stall of the same name at Crawford Lane, this bak chor mee certainly lives up to its name... every ingredient were cooked to perfection, from the liver to the lean meat to the meatballs to the huge dumplings thrown in. The noodles also had a lot of 'body'...and soaked with fragrant vinegar.. it is certainly one of the best BCM I've ever tried ..





    C & C welcome

    Sashimi Moriwase @ Sushi Tei @ Serangoon Gardens

    Red Prawn (seasonal item), Salmon, Nama Hotate (Scallops) and Mekajiki (Swordfish) .. all fresh and thick-sliced... to me, Sushi Tei has always been one of those restaurants is reliable and provides good quality stuff..





    Swedish Meatballs@ IKEA Tampines

    most Singaporean's first taste of Swedish meatballs is at Ikea, and I am no different. After so many years, it is still so good, and Ikea is still THE place to go for this..





    BBQ Pork Ribs @ Han Sik Korean Restaurant @ #02-00 Heartland Mall, 205 Hougang Street 21 (Kovan)

    a small-scale restaurant run by a Korean lady..not easy to find something like this in the HDB heartlands ...well, the BBQ pork ribs didn disappoint, was marinated well, tasted great, price reasonable also (ard $20 I think)..

    Recently tried the re-opened Sin Hoe Hin Wanton Mee @ 941, Upper Serangoon Road (inside a newly-opened coffeeshop at junction of Simon Road and Upper Serangoon Road, few shophouses down from Punggol Nasi Lemak and Hock Lam Beef Noodles)

    Dark sauce went absolutely well with the generous amt of noodles. The wantons were also huge and full of body !

    Yes, I was referring to your earlier postings...chai tow kway at edge of table...!!! As for "phpgr"......was trying to say...Photographer...sorry to you...!!!!!! Btw, your food-pics #92 were rather nicely done/shot...no doubt the top-pic of #92 top-right-corner reveal part of elsewhere but somehow or rather due to nothing/no eg. table/chair legs and lightly-blue color and a considered as small portion = passed the shot...!! One thing perhaps is a pair of chopstick to compliment with the whole 'Set-up'=meaning 'on-the-whole' food-pic' the spoon in the soup and wanton noodle feel/like gonna use hand-to-eat ahhh...get what I mean, bro...?!?!

    As for #92-bottom pic......(...as you know I hardly give thumps-up...anyhow...), a nice feel of the 'holding' of noodle...and most importantly is I remembered I told you about the 2-point-focus thing...and now that you finally 'Got-It' liao...Good and keep-it-up, bro!!!!!

    Cheers leh...!!!!!!

    Thanks... I think the value of posting pics here is that we improve with the criticism...

    Here's another I've recently tried (sorry, didn put chopsticks in also) :

    Fishball Mee Pok @ Teochew Bakso @ #01-1086 People's Park Cooked Food Centre

    first thing that struck me when I saw the food was the huge fishballs.. they were certainly larger than the normal ones served at other stalls...another was the fishcakes, there were the plain ones, and the orange ones, which really had a strong otah taste infused within, unlike those I've tried at other places



    after stirring it up, I realised the best part is the chilli-and-noodle mixture.. savoury, spicy, yes, oily...but tasted fantastic ! (haha, decided to try a different kind of shot, clump of noodles from top down)

    Well bro, those "bits & pieces" sticking and hanging around the bowl, be it inside or out.....rather unsightly.....hmmm, I do agree that might not totally be your
    "faults" as I did come across not once but uncountable by now liao...hahahaaa...just that, if possible, do 'touch-up/tidy-up' a bit before executing the shot...!!!


    Btw, for pic#2...not only not so presentable by using such a crop for Food-photography...go and figure it out, which I seriously know you can, if not, will tell you straight=spoon-feed-time lor...hohohor...
    Anything that can take pictures...happy already lor...(..but...Hasselblad_H5D-50 as my Workhorse)

    haha, ok, will keep in mind again, though I make no apologies for the bits and pieces, cuz after all, it is hawker food, and that's how they serve it.. but I might look for a better angle to avoid them next time...

    here's some cakes recently tried @ Antoinette @ 30, Penhas Road

    they were heavenly !



    the Antoinette

    This milk chocolate mousse cake infused with earl grey tea is simply SUPERB ! rich, but not overpowering, sweet but not saccharine, and the earl grey gives it a unique touch.. what a cake !








    the Theobroma

    the description read dark chocolate cremeux, dark chocolate mousse, exotic jelly, hazelnut dacquoise biscuit, flourless chocolate cake, dark chocolate crunchy pearls, salted vanilla caramel...all packed into this little innocent-looking confection... and the result is absolutely potent and intoxicating..mmmm...
