The Best Singapore Food Blogs - My Favorite Top 3

After the recent noise over Singapore food bloggers issuing juvenile challengers to celebrity chefs, I thought today might be a good day to list down the really great food blogs and bloggers from this island.

I have previously done a top 5 list or something, but that was when I first started out blogging myself, and had little knowledge of the food community here.

After doing this blogging thingy for nearly 3 years, I have since had a better grasp on what are my own favorite reads when I am not blogging myself, and the inspiration I get from these brilliant bloggers.

I have in fact, met up with 2 of the 3 and have had a wonderful time talking to them about all things food, and would like to highlight their excellent work here.

The Dirty Stall

First up, is the only entry that appeared in my original list and my favorite of that list. Dirty Stall, which is run by the blogger under the handle alkanphel. His blog is filled with his various food trips around the region, and he is short and sharp in his descriptions. He shoots very excellent photos as well.

But the thing I like most are his recipes (which is a common theme here), and he keeps his cooking simple but effective. And I always enjoy his carefully thought out sequence of photos and narrative in describing his recipes as an asset that only the best food bloggers in the world possess.

He may not blog as often, but when he does, it is always something special and is always worth reading. He is one where quality triumphs over quantity. Great job, alkanphel even after so long at this!

Johor Kaki

Johor Kaki is maintained by Tony and has been around for only 2 years, but in that time, it has risen to the top of the blog charts in terms of not just popularity, but also the amount of praise it has gotten. Like its namesake, it's main focus is on Johor food and Tony is a human GPS when it comes to food spots in Johor.

Tony has also received kudos for his honest and sincere writing, and his relentless championing of the small time food owners and cooks in Johor. His quest is to provide a social marketing window to the various fantastic food eateries of Johor and I believe he has successfully done so.

Beyond that, Tony is also a gentleman and one of the nicest bloggers you can find around. He loves to bring people together and share and his generosity extends to even bringing other fellow bloggers along his makan trail, myself included. This is a blog not to be missed!

The Food Canon

Last, but not least, is Terry Wong's The Food Canon. Terry is one of the most passionate home cooks that I have met, and I even had the honor of cross blogging with him once, which was a treat. His dedication to preserving the traditions of his roots from Malaysia and carrying on the recipes of Aunty Ruby (his mom) is most respectable and highly admirable.

Like all good cooks, Terry is relentless in trying to know more and improve on his never ending list of recipes. And like the other bloggers mentioned here, he seeks authenticity and sometimes blogs about the food adventures that he has been on. And Terry is also one of the nicest persons you can ever get to know in person, and it has been a real privilege.

But mostly, Terry is a gentleman that is ever so generous in sharing his food knowledge with anyone who is keen, and that is the true spirit of food. It is no wonder that so many other bloggers (including myself), has his URL in our blogroll.

So, there you have it. My 3 most favorite food bloggers of Singapore. And although I have never alkanphel in person, I believe all 3 are the consummate cooks in their respective domains. What is utmost in all 3 is their humility in their quest of all things culinary.

It is this spirit of food that enables the continuing journey of gastronomy to flourish and improve over time. And although they may not garner as many hits as some of the more popular blogs, I believe you will find more information and treasure in those 3 sites than the top 10 most popular Singapore food blogs combined.

Enjoy reading.
