RECIPE Kaki. Cooking Singapore Teochew Peppery Bak Kut Teh with Pressure Cooker


This is the garlicky peppery style of bak kut teh (literally meat bone tea) commonly sold in Singapore. This dish which is very popular with tourists, is relatively simple to replicate at home whether in China, Europe or North America as the ingredients are widely available in supermarkets. It also does not involve any special equipment.

Golden Carp of Trio Prosperity by Mad About Sucre. Birth of a Chinese New Year Tradition?


I was walking past MAD About SUCRE and just wanted to pop my head in to say hello to Eric and team, then pop out again. But, Eric wouldn't allow that and insisted that I sit down for tea and a cake.

Then, this golden carp caught my eye. It's MAD About SUCRE's newest Chinese New Year offering. "All sold out for this year" Eric told me 😮

Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Singapore. Miao Yi in People's Park Centre 妙益素食楼


We met for lunch today at Miao Yi 妙益, one of the longest established and famous vegetarian restaurants in Singapore. Founded in 1991, the founder still heads the kitchen, ensuring the standards which Miao Yi is famous for, stay the same. This was my first time at Miao Yi and I love it.

Man Man Unagi (Japanese Grilled Eel) in Singapore


Most Singapore foodies would have heard of Man Man Unagi and many would have tried it before. Opened in 2015, Man Man was among Michelin's Singapore Bib Gourmand winners of 2017. Deterred by the long queues which hasn't abated since it opened, I tried Man Man for the first time only yesterday, together with three buddies who are big fans of Man Man.

MAD About SUCRE CNY Pop Shop 2018


Yesterday, we tasted MAD about SUCRE's Chinese New Year pop shop dishes. MAD about SUCRE is a quaint little restaurant in Singapore's Chinatown which I recommend to friends for their quirky interpretations of French fare and fine pastries. For this Chinese New Year, from 6 Feb till 5 Mar, MAD returns briefly to their Chinese roots with their CNY pop shop.

If you are in Singapore now, you will see many queues around the island - people lining up to buy bak kwa 肉干 for Chinese New Year. Eating bak kwa is a Chinese New Year custom in Singapore. Queueing for hours to buy bak kwa is also a CNY custom here 😄 Buddy brought me to Bee Chun Heng (Lau Po) 美珍香(老鋪) at 89, Frankel Avenue.
