Pietro - MasterChef Peter Neo's New Italian Restaurant

Over the last year or so, I have had the good fortune and opportunity to know and work with Masterchef Peter Neo on a number of occasions, both tasting his great food, and conducting cooking lessons with him.

And it is without doubt that my cooking skills have improved immeasurably from watching him work and cook for his loyal fans and followers.

Zam Zam Murtabak

It's been awhile since I last blogged about a prata place, and while my all time favorite will still be Sin Ming Roti Prata, I am beginning to find other very good alternative prata houses.

This one happens to be opposite the Sultan Mosque towards Bugis Junction, and is reputed to be one of the most notable prata houses in town. I decided to give it a try one evening after work.

Dove Desserts - Chendol at its Best!

In the concluding part of my Toa Payoh Lorong 7 Food Centre trilogy, I want to focus on desserts. After all, I practically started with an omelette appetizer, followed by a beef noodle main.

What better way to end this trio of food delicacies than to talk about one of the best chendols you can find here in Singapore, and I am talking about Dove Desserts.

Hai Nan Xing Zhou Beef Noodles at Toa Payoh Lorong 7

In my second of 3 reviews at Toa Payoh Food Centre, I want to talk about this very well known beef noodle stall that a number of my friends have been raving about.

It used to hail from the famous Cuppage Centre hawker centre many eons ago, and it continues to ply its trade now at the crowded hawker centre here in Lorong 7 of Toa Payoh.

Ah Chuan Oyster Omelette at Toa Payoh Lorong 7

Pauline has a penchant for oyster omelette, and yet, ironically enough, she would always leave the oysters to me as she just wants the non-oyster portions of this dish.

For me, I do not always enjoy this delicacy as I find most stalls do not have the right balance of flavors, and mind you, this is not a dish that is easily mastered.

Sesame Ginger Chicken in Dark Soya Sauce with Black Fungus

Pauline's mum has always had a range of classic recipes that she would always enjoy, and food that she has grown up eating.

One of her very favorites is this delicious sesame ginger chicken in dark soy with black fungus that never fails to delight. With that in mind, I decided to replicate it with a bit of my own touch.

Nespresso at ION Orchard

Personally, I have never been an avid coffee drinker, and apart from the Starbucks and Coffee Bean craze in the mid to late 90s, I have rarely ventured into coffee territory.

Pauline, however, is almost coffee dependent, and needs a shot everyday to get her engine going. And every once in a while, she would brew a nice cup of Illy coffee, which is temptingly aromatic and I would steal a sip or two.
