Chilli Lobster


Dungeness crab season reminds me of those trips out to Little Red House in East Coast for Chilli Crab. The best part of eating Singapore Chilli Crab for me is the chilli sauce. I couldn’t bring myself to kill a live crab and since I am really after the chilli sauce, I decided that its just as good to have Read More

Thanks to Prima Taste, we can easily enjoy authentic Singapore Satay thousands of miles away from home. As we clean up and put away the BBQ grill this year, I am taking time Read More

Chinese Rojak (Salad in Shrimp Paste Dressing)


My sister prepared this delicacy for me when I visited last month. Her version uses apples instead of jicama. I love the sweet and tangy taste of the shrimp paste dressing combined with the varied texture of fruits, vegetables, and Chinese crullers. I rarely eat salad, but this is one salad I will eat often if I can afford the Read More

Kong Bak Bao (扣肉包)Braised Pork in Soy Sauce


I remember this is one of the must-have dish when we visit Westlake Eating House back home. The pork is always braised to perfect tenderness, and the sauce is to die for. I cooked this on the stove top for one and a half hour. The meat is still not tender enough. Next time, I’ll cook it in the slow Read More

Five Spice Roast Chicken


  The first time I roasted a bird was last Thanksgiving 2013; roasted a 12 lb turkey for a gourmet club event with the theme Fusion Thanksgiving. Since then, my roasting pan has been sitting in the garage. The girls asked me if I will ever use that roasting pan again? I decided that I will practice roasting a bird Read More

Kueh Bengka Ubi (Baked Tapioca Cake)


I attended my nephew’s holiday potluck party last weekend: “bring whatever food you wish to eat and share…home cooked Singapore food encouraged.” I like so many dishes from Singapore, which one should I bring? It has been a long time since I made Kueh Bengka Ubi, and it is so easy to make and so tasty, you can’t eat just Read More
