Rubato With Video

2012 Latest update: Chef Peter has moved on and started his own restaurant called Pietro at Jalan Kelulut.

Pauline came home one night with a very excited look on her face, and this was due to the fact that she had just discovered a delightful new Italian restaurant near her workplace.

Rubato was the simple name of this place, and it is run and owned by a very young yet remarkable young man by the name of Marcus. It is located within Jalan Peminpin, just about 10 minutes walk from Marymount MRT.

Kok Kee Wanton Noodle With Video

After going to 51 Kovan Wanton Noodle, winekaki was anxious to bring me to his personal favorite wanton noodle place, found in Lavender Food Market.

Kok Kee Wanton Noodle is run by an elderly couple, and has been quite notable. This was pretty much endorsed by the fact that there was always a queue when we were there during the off peak hours of 3pm in the afternoon.

Punggol Noodles In Kovan With Video

I have long heard of this very remarkable noodle place in Kovan called Punggol Noodles, and had been waiting to try their noted meatball noodles for quite some time now.

Unfortunately, their business is so good that they usually close after lunch, which means we had to get there very early one weekend just to savor this noodle delicacy.

51 Kovan Market Ming Fa Wanton Egg Noodle With Video

We had a chance to try out this very popular wanton mee stall in Kovan Food Market just yesterday morning, and boy, was it really popular! The queue was just amazing!

Bobcat informed us that there were actually 2 very good wanton noodle stalls here, and the other was very nearby found just a couple of stalls away at no. 57.

Xin Yang Thai Food in Woodlands

Winekaki who lives in Woodlands has always been asking me to try out this quaint little Thai stall situated on a 2nd floor of a food court there, and I had never been able to do so until last week.

On the evening that we were there, and despite a heavy downpour outside, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this stall was attracting quite a large queue. Larger than the zhe char stall next door.

A Silver Valentine - Valentine's Day 2011

Although we have been together for many years, we have always celebrated Valentine's Day one way or another. And in our younger, more gullible years, we have always gone out to restaurants on this day.

In recent years, perhaps due to work, and also due to the realisation that V-Day can be very commercialised, we have veered towards simpler meals to celebrate.

Bobcat PhD, Persistent Hawker Detective

Today, I am taking a break from the usual food posts, and would really like to acknowledge someone who has been very influential to this blog.

And that person is none other than Bobcat, who is really one of the best resources for hawker food in Singapore.

Futhermore, he is also someone who has a great palette and has a great affinity with people.

Jiang Ji Traditional Hainanese Chicken Rice 江记 With Video - The Best Chicken Rice

There are very few certainties in life, and what's more, there are very few definitive hawker food out there that can stand head and shoulder above their every competitor.

So, when it comes to our beloved chicken rice, there has always been great debate on who is the best in town. Wee Nam Kee, Boon Tong Kee, Kampong Chicken, Tian Tian, 5 Star etc, the list is endless.

Poh Kee Satay at Hougang 212

Our good friend and resourceful foodie, Bobcat introduced us to this quaint little satay stall in a Hougang coffee shop one weekend, and I was unable to go try this out, until now.

Winekaki and I were having our Ri Yi beef noodles and I remembered Bobcat telling me to try this out at night as they only operate at night. And boy, was it a worthwhile visit!

Hawaiian Puff From Pie Connection

Pauline and I were very privileged this morning to get a taste of Pie Connection's very special and exclusive Hawaiian puff and boy, was it really special!

This puff was done as a one-off by special request for one of their customer, and as such, it is akin to a limited edition of sorts. Nevertheless, here is our thoughts on this puff.

Shrimp Bisque

A happy and prosperous new year to everyone! And what better way to celebrate this new year than with a new recipe.

This was something I did on new year's day and it is a favorite of my mum-in-law's as well, as she devoured it almost in no time!
