SP Pratas and Curry at Seletar Hill Estate

Today, I thought I do a very quick post on a prata joint I recently discovered by chance in a very quiet place in Seletar Hill Estate.

Well, maybe not that quiet as the morning crowd was quite bustling and being the only coffeeshop around, in a place surrounded by private houses, it would definitely be the place to get your morning breakfast and such.

58 Prawn Noodle at Bedok Reservoir Road

A foodie friend of mine actually brought me to this incredible prawn mee stall last week, but it was already sold out by the time we were there after 2pm.

This time round, we made it a point to be there just before noon, and one of the things that stood out was this stall was in a coffeeshop humorously called See Beh Ho Eating House.

Beer Braised Pork Belly With Apples

Being Chinese, we are used to eating braised pork belly done by our mums and grandmums over the years, and it is indeed one of those classic family dishes that will evoke your earliest childhood food memories.

Yet, for all its tradition and history, I have never been entirely satisfied with the way it is made. And I was seeking how to improve this dish using some of the modern cooking techniques out there.

Singapore Fake Food - Plastic Food Models

Take a look at this picture, and it sure looks like a delectable bowl of local wanton mee, and you will be hard pressed to think it is fake.

But it is, for this entire bowl is made of pvc and plastic, and it is totally inedible. Yet, it looks incredibly realistic and utterly yummy. It is, in fact, a prime example of Singapore food models.

Hai Sheng Fried Carrot Cake at Bedok North

Here is the first of two posts on fried carrot cake. And for me, fried carrot cake is something I simply adore as an outside snack, and also something I don't do at home.

The combination of daikon, carrot, egg and spring onion has a simplicity that can always still impress any palate. Yet, good hawker stalls that service this dish is still a rarity here.

Classic Spaghetti Bolognese

It is unfortunately sad but true that most pasta places you find in Singapore serve pretty much mediocre pasta, and nothing gets worse than a plate of watery and sour Bolognese.

I will not name names, but the popular cafes here just do not take the effort to make a good sauce for this classic dish, and hence, make a mess out of it. It is amazing still, that most younger folks who patronize such outlets think they are eating real Spaghetti Bolognese.
