An Evening With Susur Lee With Video

Ever since Pauline and I saw Susur Lee on Top Chef Masters, we were rooting for him all the way until the finals, which unfortunately, he lost by the narrowest of margins.

So, when I was graciously invited by DBS Indulge and HungryGoWhere to attend a master class, jointly organised by DBS and the Asian Food Channel, I had no hesitation in saying Yes!

Tiger Prawn Capellini

This would have been called tiger prawn risotto, had it not been for a last minute decision to cook pasta instead of risotto.

Nevertheless, the resulting dish was just as appealing as my original idea for a shrimp risotto, and in some ways, might have just turned out better.

Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice 天天海南鸡饭

Despite having so much chicken rice in the last few months, I have not had the chance to sample one of the most talked about Hainanese chicken rice in town, namely, Tian Tian.

So, it was without hesitation, when one of my golf buddies suggested we go Maxwell Market one afternoon that I agreed with the intention of checking this very famous chicken rice eatery.

Chinese Sausage Linguine

It's strange how you can take the unlikeliest of ingredients and make an edible dish out of it, and that is exactly what I did this weekend.

My mum, who has always had this notion that she is the best cook in the family (which belongs to my late Dad, by the way), decided to hand us some chinese sausages.

Shokudo Japanese Coffee House With Video

In recent years, there has been an increasing number of new Japanese cafes that specialises in western fare, especially Italian pastas and pizzas.

I remember a few years back, I used to frequent Waraku Pasta in Clarke Quay Central, and back then, it was very packed and had a novelty feel about it.

Sole Pomodoro With Video

I was privileged to be invited along for a pizza tasting session at Sole Pomodoro over last weekend, and this was quite a new pizza place located at Mackenzie Road, just off Selegie Road.

It is owned by two very passionate Italians who are very proud of their pizzas and how they actually make them. The place itself is a refurbished kopitiam, but made to look more like an Italian alfresco cafe.

Grandma's At Nex With Video

I have always walked past Grandma's in town, but just never really got around to patronising it. And it is only when I was at the newly opened Serangoon Nex that I finally had my first taste of Grandma's.

At Nex, there is really a wide choice of eateries found on almost every floor of this huge complex. We happened to decide to venture into this rather well known home styled restaurant.

Best And Top 10 Singapore Hawker Dishes

Since my last best of list on hawker food back in January, I had been wanting to compile another best of Singapore hawker dishes, but decided to hold off as I kept on discovering great new hawker stalls.

Like all of my lists, this list is also subjective and based solely on my own opinions and taste. I am sure, there are many great hawker dishes that will be equally deserving, but I have decided to come up with my 10 personal faves.

Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh With Video

It's been awhile since I last posted a bak kut teh blog, and it was just appropriate when one of my friends decided to bring me to the popular Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh for the first time.

It is situated at Rangoon Road and is found in a very unusual corner of an industrial building. Not really the sort of place you will think of finding notable eateries.

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.
