    Fish Files: Snappers and Jobfish

    ieatishootipost.sg 27 May '16, 10am

    The juvenile fish bears several distinct bands on its body which makes it easily distinguishable from the other snappers. There are a few references which state that the stripes look like a “broad arrow”, but I have yet to figure out how it even vaguely resembles an arrow! These strip...

    Famous Five: Best Carrot Cake

    ieatishootipost.sg 16 May '16, 1pm

    Everyone has their own preferences. Some like it black, some like it white. Some can’t decide and just order both. The more passionate hawkers still steam their own carrot cake which is quite a laborious process. However, as our pick of 5 popular stalls here shows, steaming your own c...

    Victory Murtabak: 103 years and still going strong!

    ieatishootipost.sg 13 May '16, 5am

    Murtabak is one just one of those dishes that never fails to excite. From the theatrics of the flipping the dough to the bubbling anticipation that builds while the flatbread is sizzling away on the griddle, there is very little not to like about Murtabak, except for what it does to y...
