  • 126 Dim Sum Wen Dao Shi (搵到食): Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: June 28, 2014

    "Original Hong Kong road-side style Dim Sum"

     126 dim sum wen dao shi

    126 Dim sum, or Wan Dou Sek (搵到食) in Cantoneseis a brilliant wordplay on the name as well as the street number that this dum sum restaurant is located on. If the owner wasn't into dim sum, he/she could seriously consider a career in copywriting. This is probably the most authentic looking Hong Kong style dim sum in Singapore, complete with a burly aunty with permed hair. Other close runner ups include Swee Choon Dim Sum and Victor's Kitchen. The sheer genius of 126 Eating House dim sum is that it's open 24 hrs, every single day. ...
  • Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King: Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: January 8, 2014

    "Best Tonkotsu Ramen Soup Base in Singapore"

    ramen Keisuke tonkotsu king logo

    Ramen Keisuke has 3 small eateries at Orchird hotel, with Keisuke Tonkotsu King being one of them, along with Tori King and Gyoza King. If you are familiar with Japanese terms, the naming is pretty self-explanatory of what the specialty at each shop is.

    Tonkotsu King has about 20 seats and is constantly full due to its small capacity. The branding as a hole-in-the-wall, simple homely shop has worked wonderfully with many Singaporeans visiting like bees to honey.


  • Victor’s Kitchen: Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: January 19, 2016

    "The hidden dim sum kitchen"

    Victor's kitchen inside

    Found in Sunshine plaza, Victor's Kitchen is definitely not an easy place to find even though it's so close to town. I mean, they don't even have a website or Facebook page! Their reputation is purely word-of-mouth and patronized by the people who pass by Sunshine plaza and see some crazy queue during lunch. I stopped by around 3pm, which is why the place looks so vacant. But trust me, it's a completely different story during meal time. I got a good shot of how Victor's Kitchen looks when it's empty, which is a very bare minimum setup with whatever random tables and chairs they could find at the value store. A very unpretentious place to walk in for some afternoon dim sum just like in Hong Kong. ...
  • Ming Kee Chicken Rice Porridge (明记鸡饭粥): Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: May 25, 2014

    "Best Chicken Rice in Bishan"

    Ming Kee Chicken Rice (明记鸡饭粥 ), formerly relocated from Bugis Street, is no doubt one of the best chicken rice in Singapore. Located in Kim San Leng Food Centre near Bishan bus interchange, the queue here is absurd during lunch time, having to wait 30 minutes or more! I usually come post lunch, 2pm-5pm to avoid the queue. Ming Kee only serves 'white' chopped chicken (白斬雞), with accompanying dishes like bean sprouts, oyster vegetables, gizzard and 'crystal' chicken feet. A simple, standard chicken rice stall menu. Ming Kee Chicken Rice ...
  • Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen (Liang Court): Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: October 27, 2013

    "Smoking hot ramen"

    Tonkotsu Kazan Ramen I first saw Tonkotsu Kazan ramen featured on Danielfooddiary, and was quite intrigued by the smoking presentation of the ramen. The unique volcano concept for ramen was inspired by its founder, amazed to see Singaporeans eating smoking hot steam boat in the sweltering heat of our little country. Thus Tonkotsu Kazan ramen was born with its signature red funnel top, piping steam out like a volcano. ...
  • Swee Choon Dim Sum: Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: July 19, 2014

    "One of the most celebrated, well-known Dim sum in Singapore"

    Swee Choon is one of Singapore's oldest established dim sum restaurants, having more than 40 years of heritage. What was originally a single unit shop-house at Jalan Besar has grown to occupy 4 connecting shop-houses and even has tables in the back alley. I first came to know Swee Choon years ago because it opened till 6am, and was the perfect supper place for drunk party-goers. Strangely, the traditional dim sum model has always been a morning affair, but Swee Choon Dim Sum has managed to turn it around, only opening for business at 6pm instead. After clubbing, Swee Choon is fairly accessible from town and thus caters to the midnight supper gang. Families and youngsters alike patronize this popular spot along Jalan Besar. [adrotate group="4"] If you haven't heard of Swee Choon, you haven't clubbed hard enough in Singapore. Dim sum is known for ordering in variety so that everybody can share, so there's going to be loads of dim sum pictures coming up. I'm only highlighting some of the best dim sums I liked at Swee Choon, as there's just too much too list. ...

  • Boston Seafood Shack: Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: January 19, 2016

    "New player in casual seafood dining"Boston seafood shack

    Boston Seafood shack is a relatively new casual seafood concept housed in Star Vista mall, brought to you by Creative Eateries, the same people behind famous local chains like Bangkok Jam and Siam kitchen. Boston Seafood Shack looks poised to compete against the big shots like Fish & Co and Manhattan Fish Market. I'm going to be perfectly honest with my readers; prior to the tasting session at Boston Seafood Shack, I did some online research on the restaurant and boy, were the results far from flattering. If you looked up, you'd probably still see the nasty reviews up there. I promised myself as a food writer that I will never sugar coat a truly bad experience, if not that defeats the point of a review. This might be awkward hmm....

  • Saveur Restaurant (Purvis St): Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: January 19, 2016

    "Saveur is the most value for money French casual restaurant in town"

    saveurinterior By the way, it's supposed to be pronounced 'SAH-VUR', like cat fur. I've been to Saveur twice already and it has been a delight. Many other bloggers have done a Saveur food review as well for very good reasons.
    Ok, the inconvenient drag is that you have to be there on the dot when they open at 6pm (for dinner). Come at 6.05pm and sorry, you have to wait for the next seating at 6.45pm (I know because this is exactly what happened to me the 2nd time). Even at 6pm there's a queue now. The tell-tale signs of a successful eatery is when the staff accidentally lets out a giggle as you phone ahead to place a reservation. You know it's going to be full-house. ...
  • Simply Bread (Cluny Court): Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: November 20, 2013

    "Good simple bread"

    On the constant pursuit for the best breakfast places that won't break the bank, I arrived at Cluny Court for my next endeavour. To be honest, we were supposed to brunch at Société Canteen, but as I was waiting inside for my late date (yet again), I changed my mind to venture somewhere else. Why, you ask? The atmosphere at the Société Canteen was very, very cold and pretentious. Cold as in emotionless and without passion. No where near the Melbourne experience as promised. There were barely 3 tables occupied and no one smiled or even said hello. Everyone just looked like there was someone with a gun in the back room and they had to pretend to look normal. Absolutely stoic and I couldn't stand it in there. Oh wait, this is a review about Simply Bread, right, on to that. Ahem....
  • Wimbly Lu: Singapore Food Review

    Last Updated: January 19, 2016

    "Comfy, home setting"

    I've heard my friends rave about the secret cafe stretch at Jalan Riang, and am ashamed that I've been staying in the Serangoon area for 27 years without ever visiting. One fine sunny day, I took a 15 minutes walk to this road from my home, deep within the foliage of terrace houses to find this magical place. Was snooping around the mostly Melbourne-ish inspired cafes and bistro, then finally was drawn into Wimbly Lu. They had a brunch menu with scrambled eggs, so that won me over. Wimbly Lu looked packed and there was a 7 pax before us. Waited about 8 minutes and got seated inside. The cafe has very pleasing decorum, refurbished from an old shop house with the original wall stripped off it's wallpaper to reveal the brick foundation. Grand displays of the chocolates and cakes, which they are known for. Inside, there was a huge light-well glass ceiling that let in plenty of natural sunlight and a little courtyard, which is why just stepping inside Wimbly Lu makes you feel like a happy unicorn at home. ...
