plus39 Gelato Bar @ Boat Quay – Pistachio Gelato is a Must-Try!

Thursday, 2 April 2015 Leave a comment

plus39 Gelato Bar is definitely not a stranger for gelato lovers especially for those who have just went to Gelato World Tour at MBS. They are the people behind Loving Date – tofu and tahini (sesame seed paste) and it was very well-received by many.

Cheng Mun Kee Pig’s Organ Soup @ Circuit Road

Wednesday, 1 April 2015 Leave a comment Posted in: * Must Try *, Hawker

I still remember my first pig’s organ soup in the past comes with pig’s blood, which I calls it hard tofu. Unfortunately, pig’s blood is no longer allowed. I usually visit Lao San Kway Chap for my pig’s organ soup cravings. A few weeks ago, my makan buddies and I visited Circuit Road’s Cheng Mun Kee Pig’s Organ Soup.

Lao Ban Niang Zhu Chao @ Serangoon

Monday, 30 March 2015 Leave a comment Posted in: # Chinese, Cze Char

Say you want to celebrate a birthday or have a family gathering but don’t want to spend a lot of money in a high class Chinese restaurant. Some zi char places offer restaurant standard dishes at wallet friendly prices. I dined recently at Lao Ban Niang Zhu Chao (老板娘煮炒) in Serangoon (along Yio Chu Kang Link, opposite Serangoon stadium) and it looks like a no-frills place for a celebratory dinner …
