When one mentions good, authentic Thai cuisine, hearty local eateries like Nakhon and Spicy Thai-Thai would come to mind - not some bar-restaurant in an expat-centric location, boasting fancy menus with Western dishes like duck confit. 


That pretty much describes Soi 60. Located at The Quayside, among an abundance of bars, is the contempo...

Seated along Syed Alwi Road, opposite the bustling Mustafa centre and smack in the heart of Little India, is the unsassuming Chindian restaurant Copper Chimney. Yes you read that right, I did just say Chindian. It is exactly as it sounds, essentially Chinese Indian cuisine that originated from the Northern Eastern part of India bordering China....

A long standing favourite among dim sum regulars, Victor's Kitchen is popular for serving delicious, reasonably-priced, authentic dim sum. Owned and fully operated by Hong Kongers - to the point of being investigated by our Ministry of Manpower for hiring illegal Hong Kong immigrant workers - it can't get more authentic than that. 


I've written abo...

One of the biggest local favourites, it's hard to find a Singaporean that does not like bak kut teh. Thanks to that there has never been a shortage of bak kut teh stalls, with the bigger names like Ng Ah Sio and Songfa BKT having multiple outlets across the island.


Ya Hua Rou Gu Cha is one such stall. A big name in the local bak kut teh scene for d...

I'm not the biggest fan of Thai food. I mean I like it, but I don't love it enough to ramble on and on about it. I do however train Muay Thai, and as Muay Thai students we get dragged along to huge Thai dinners with fellow students and instructors. Thus I have had my share of fairly authentic Thai food (at least those that get a huge thumbs up from...

Around since 1986, Beach Road Prawn Noodle House serves arguably the best prawn noodles in Singapore. Serving up a recipe that has been passed down in owner's Lee Chee Wee's family for generations, it is no wonder it's popularity is widespread among locals.


With their signature Jumbo Prawn Mee going at $10.80 a bowl, it's far from being affordable...

Ever since I saw their new squid ink-based dishes featured on several blogs, Mouth Restaurant’s been pushed up to the top of my to-try dim sum places. Mouth Restaurant is not a new player on the block. A household name among the older generation, Mouth Restaurant had established itself as one of the very first Cantonese teahouses in Singapore. Ama...

I’m on a mission to try out as many dim sum restaurants as I can, to decide for myself once and for all where serves the best dim sum – or at least specific dim sum dishes – in Singapore. I started off by writing a list of the places I wanted to visit, which by the way surmounted to an astonishing 30 restaurants, and the first on the list was Yan T...

I tell you who doesn’t like chilli crabs. Me. The mention of it sends shivers down my spine, with images of starchy, sweet, boring ol’ chilli crabs flashing across my eyes. I don’t know when the benchmark for good crabs became the chilli crab, but it has ruined what it meant to sell a good crab. A good crab is not simply one that is draped in a ubi...

Royal China is a big player in the local dim sum scene and is definitely one of the more popular dim sum places in Singapore. Having read rave reviews about its Char Siew Sou and Custard Buns, I was glad to finally make a trip there for lunch a few Sundays back. I’ll be revisiting Royal China for their dim sum soon so I figured I’d better get this...
