    I first met Byron way back in Nov 2006 when the blog was just three months old. He had come across the photos on my blog and wanted to engage me to take some photos of his food for him. That was when I discovered, what I would still consider to this day, one of the best Kopi and Kaya ...

    ieatishootipost.sg 23 Nov '14, 1am

    With smart, SurprisePocket, jezzz and iwatch_ueat Hoe Kee has been rapidly expanding their stalls in the last few years. I am very apprehensive about the quality of food at big operators such as Hoe Kee. But SurprisePocket insisted that they were better than Zeng Zeng’s (which is usua...

  • Seletar Shen Mian: Just follow the Queue!

    ieatishootipost.sg 16 Nov '14, 4pm

    This ban mian stall in Singapore has somehow avoided my radar for many years! I don’t remember anyone recommending them whenever I ask for Ban Mian recommendations. I only stumbled upon them one day when I spotted the long queue outside their stall at the Toa Payoh Lor 8 market. That ...

  • Having my favourite Kueh Lopez this morning at Tekka Market. The Kuehs here are all very nice and made with passion!

    Simple Delites: Simple but Delightfully Delicious!

    ieatishootipost.sg 16 Nov '14, 3am

    This kueh is actually very simple. There are only four ingredients involved, viz glutinous rice, banana leaf, gula melaka and shredded coconut. It is amazing that just by selecting the right ingredients and knowing how to cook them properly, the Pak Cik at the stall managed to produce...

  • Sabar Menanti II: Good things come to those who wait patiently

    ieatishootipost.sg 13 Nov '14, 5am

    Sabar Menanti roughly means “Good things come to those who wait patiently”. This is quite misleading because one hardly has to wait patiently for a plate of Nasi Padang unless of course the queue is very long. Even though the stall is called Sabar Menanti II, it is quite different fro...

    I have been on the lookout for the old grandma style pau ever since I ate the pau at Wee Hoi in JB with Johor Kaki. So far, the closest one that I have found were the ones at Joo Huat Pau at Circuit Road Food Centre. Then, some of our readers alerted me to an old couple at Toa Payoh L...

    ieatishootipost.sg 27 Oct '14, 4am

    The book of Ecclesiastes tells us that “there is nothing new under the Sun” which is very true. Everything you see which is “new” has been tried before and recycled. Take mosaic tiles for instance. They were in fashion in the 70′s and are now in fashion again. But when you trace it ba...

  • The Teochew penchant for super fresh food & é need to boast about it is what essentially gives the food its character

    Fragrant Garden: Superb Teochew Cuisine

    ieatishootipost.sg 18 Oct '14, 11am

    The owner of the restaurant is a typical Teochew “Hao Lian Bah ” (proud man) who has little room for modesty when it comes to his food. The Teochew penchant for super fresh food (chgnee, chgnee) and the need to boast about it (hao lian ) is what essentially gives the food its characte...

    It has been a while since I wrote about Roti Prata. It’s not because I have started making my own Roti Prata at home , but just that I haven’t come across any prata shop that excited me enough to write about. Sure, I have noticed a lot of Prata Cafes opening up in shopping centres and...

    So why another Japanese Cheesecake recipe? Well, I wanted to pen down everything I learnt over the last few months of cake baking so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes that I have made. Cake baking is more of a science than an art. For non-bakers like myself, I have had to ...

    Unlike most other HCPs, the five spice salt on this one is on the outside of the HCP and the oil in the wok was all black because of all the five spice salt in the oil. After frying, the HCP was dipped into sugar. Phwaaa, the my first bite was like hitting a hole in one! How come nobo...

    Our kakis all met up for a special tasting session at Chin Huat last week. Since we had the ieat Crab Fest last year, Chin Huat has been one of my regular places to bring friends and family to eat seafood. The food there is good and the prices are reasonable and Amy is one of those yo...

    Heap Seng Leong Coffeeshop: And Time Stood Still

    ieatishootipost.sg 20 Sep '14, 9am

    Kopi Gu You (Coffee with Butter) Coffeeshops like Heap Seng Leong might be a distant memory for some and stuff of legend for others. Most Singaporeans would have probably heard of the uncle in pajama pants making kopi. Some might not even know what a pair of pajama pants look like. Fo...

    ieatishootipost.sg 15 Sep '14, 7am

    Tian Tian Lai is very popular amongst our facebook fans and no one would dispute its place here in the famous five. The main characteristic of this Hokkien Mee is its gooeyness and the intensity of the crustacean taste of the the stock. The noodles were well fried and the chef is no f...

    I asked our facebook fans where I can get the best Otar in Singapore and this particular shop at Jalan Kayu turned up the most times! I have been to Jalan Kayu on many occasions but I don’t ever remember seeing an Otar stall there! The funny thing is that most people don’t even know t...

    Like every other Singaporean, I am always on the look out for “Good and Cheap” food. I always say that there is only one thing better than finding really good food and that is finding good food that is also friendly on the wallet! Singaporeans are attracted to such “lobangs” (good dea...

    My pick for the Indian style Fish Head Curry is a bit off the tourist trail and gives you a chance to visit a more remote part of Singapore. Karu’s Banana Leaf Restaurant is testament that Singaporeans will travel anywhere for good food. Now, I might make it sound as if this place is ...

    I am glad that Cze Char is still doing well in Singapore. What I mean is that there seems to be no shortage of Cze Char stalls to review. Of course, finding the good ones is the real challenge. The problem with Cze Char stalls is that usually they are not run by chef owners. Instead, ...

    Our meal started with a piece of tofu topped with pidan (Century Egg) and tobiko. This dish was reputedly invented here in Singapore and no self respecting Japanese sushi place would ever serve it. Still it is nice, although it has become so popular that it has lost it’s novelty. It w...
