Updated Feb 28th 2022 Just came back from Singapore. It was an awesome trip to see family & friends and tried many items on my MUST EAT list. One of the few regrets is that I only got to try Char Kway Teow once during this trip. The first time I saw a Char Kway Teow stall was in Boleh Read More

What is a chicken dish for Nasi Lemak that is not spicy and can be done with the basic ingredients available in the kitchen? I found Ina Garten’s Indonesian Garlic Ginger Chicken that needed only honey, soy sauce, garlic and ginger! I picked up a 4-lb chicken from the store, and the rest is easy peasy.

I spent a lot of my childhood in Chinatown. My sister and I usually hang out at my Dad’s shop house. Sometimes we go next door and read in the World Bookstore (世界书局).

While in the bay area this summer, I had the opportunity to try many Singaporean dishes from several home chefs who offer hawker-style food that are closest and nearest to heart. One of my favorite dishes is Mama Judy’s Won Ton Mee that combines springy noodles, fried wontons, fresh green bok choy, and fatty-juicy char siu. Those tossing sauce that Read More

Mee Goreng


Updated Oct 17th, 2021 I wrote this post exactly 3 years ago but never published it. Tried to cook this dish again and followed the recipe to the t. Still good 👍.

Teriyaki Chicken


Recipe #2 that I am trying from the True Food cookbook. I didn’t know that I could make teriyaki sauce out of fruits! Pineapple, apple, ginger, and oranges are the key ingredients in this teriyaki sauce. Surprisingly, the result truly tastes like teriyaki, except it has a much thicker consistency. I bought brown rice medley from Trader Joes and cooked Read More

I was surprised that I have never heard of this dish even though I am born and bred in Singapore. After a few head scratching moments, I realized she was referring to Hainanese Chicken Rice! Updated this post with pictures for the Read More
