MAS: Madam Tang's Muah Chee @ Petaling Street

A gamble of flavours in your 'muah chee'!

Somewhere along the bustling Petaling Street in the capital city of Malaysia, an old lady by the name of Madam Tang has been selling muah chee (Chinese glutinous rice cake coated with ground peanuts) for many years. It's said that she managed to fend off three different competitors at the heart of the Chinatown over the years.

MAS: Serai

Blue-tinted rice with succulent 'ayam percik'!

I found myself back in the capital city of Malaysia for a short getaway with my mother and brother. I'd always wanted to try nasi kerabu, a local rice dish where the rice grains are dyed blue using the natural dye extracted from butterfly-pea flowers. A quick online search led me to Serai (lit. lemongrass), a cosy restaurant at the glamorous Pavilion KL.

Happy (Belated) 5th Anniversary!

Happy 5th anniversary to the blog! To my horror, in the midst of a very hectic period, I actually forgot to post this entry that I had prepared way earlier. Nevertheless, it's been a great 5 years maintaining this simple food blog that has since charted my food adventure not only in Singapore, but also elsewhere around the world. Does anyone have any idea where was the following picture taken? I'll reveal the answer sometime in the near future.

SIN: Ambush

Get your all-year-round Oktoberfest platter here! :P

As a big fan of RPG since young, the first thing that came to mind when I first saw a restaurant named Ambush in 2005 was such an attack in the Final Fantasy series. I'm really wondering why Stanley Ng, the founder of the restaurant, chose that name.

SIN: Little Saigon

Shaking beef that's guaranteed to shake your taste buds!

My uncle is a big fan of Little Saigon, a pretty classy Vietnamese restaurant adorned with classic lanterns that's situated by the riverside at Clarke Quay. He wanted to introduce me to two items that have effectively hooked him.

SIN: Oh Neul Han Jeom

Delectably chewy jap chae, but insipid ginseng chicken soup...

Decked in a rustic wooden setting, Oh Neul Han Jeom serves a range of authentic Korean food. Situated along the row of shophouses of Telok Ayer Street, it's within less than 10 minutes walk from the MRT station that shares the same name with the street.

SIN: Wednesdays Food Company

Take note: they're closed on Wednesdays! :P

Wednesdays Food Company is a quaint eatery in an oriental shophouse along Jalan Besar, serving all-day brunch dishes. I just found an interesting description by the eatery, which mentions about fulfilling "whatever request [that customers] would like to have ... as long as it's within [their] means. Bacon in your coffee? Sure. Ice cream on your chicken? Even better." :P

SIN: Wood & Steel Gastrobar

Enjoy grilled twin king prawns at the upper deck of a boat~

Enjoy al-fresco dining on a boat, but no time to go on a cruise? Wood & Steel Gastrobar is a nice place to unwind after a tiring day at work, situated on the upper deck of Stewords Riverboat at Marina South Pier. That was my very first time alighting at the relatively new MRT station since its opening on 23 November 2014.

Have you ever tried chicken ajillo before?

Cocotto is an eatery-cum-bar that offers an eclectic mix of Japanese-inspired cuisine and other international fares, some of which are served in French style pots. It's located within walking distance from either Telok Ayer or Raffles Place MRT station.
