Midweek lunch at an unexpected location in the new mall - One @ Kent Ridge at NUH Medical Centre. Spotting traditional Chicken Curry, Prata and Katong Laksa on the menu of a food kiosk called AH BUI'S CURRY HOUSE.

Quirky name for a modern establishment by a young and talented owner who's isn't Ah Bui (Fat) at all. What's terrible is that he's so much leaner than me lol.

Food wise, small bowls of laksa each cost $4 and regular bowls for $5. If you're nearby NUH or working around One-North craving for grandma inspired local delights, this is an ideal place for a quick meal or a takeout. By the way, Llao Llao's close by too and there's no queue here.


Scrumptious White Carrot Cake from an unrated Fried Carrot Cake stall at Redhill Market & Food Centre. Queued closed to an hour (日夜香 stall open in morning) on an early Sunday morning.

The addition of bean sprouts goes well with the light, fluffy carrot carrot chunks and chewy egg which had that occasional crispy end.

My mum reviewed that this stall's fried carrot cake is so much better than the famous Fu Ming Carrot Cake stall at the same market. I totally agreed with her and thank you Mommy for the breakfast.


Neighborhood eats with some decent Maggi Goreng from a random Mamak stall (Shafima Family Food) at Beo Crescent Market & Food Centre.


Hylam Street Old Street: Traditional Nanyang Old Coffee $2.80 per set very nostalgia with local flavours. But I will not wait another 30 minutes for it. That's the reason why Toastbox is successful.

A popular old school Nonya delicatessen kiosk located inside Bukit Timah Plaza serve up limited items such as Mee Siam, Mee Rebus, Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Nasi Kunyit and Nonya Kuehs since the 1990s.

Saw most of the customers having the laksa but I decided to have mee siam instead. Found that the broth wasn't rich enough, but it was still tasty and satisfying for me.

The kiosk is always packed (limited seating) with long queues in the morning and during lunch time, and usually sold out by brunch hours. Will be back to try other dishes when I'm nearby.


Jin Tian Eating House 香港锦田, (55 Zion Road) serve arguably one of the best roast meats in Singapore. We love the friendly service of the owner and his staff speaking in fluent Cantonese.

Had a plate of twin roast meat rice, wanton noodles and a generous bowl of dumpling soup at only $12. Might not be the most authentic HK roast we had, but with the friendly pricing we are not complaining.


This is simply comfort food at its best. Home styled pork meat porridge coupled with pork liver and egg, which gave pleasant memories of what my late grandmother used to cook for me. You can order the basic porridge bowl with just pork meat at $2.50, or add on an egg, pork liver, cuttlefish and even chicken meat. Thanks team Burpple for sharing this coffeeshop gem with me.


Ponggol Nasi Lemak lunch from last Saturday. Simply choose any of the four set menus or customise your own nasi lemak from the range of all-time favourite dishes and premium house specialities available only at the fully air-conditioned flagship outlet at Jalan Besar.


Chuen Chuen Cafe (previously at Keypoint Beach Road) offers decent quality chicken rice, tasty chicken variations such as Curry chicken noodles, Marmite chicken, Imperial honey chicken and other zi char dishes. All in all a good experience but there is certainly better food in this area with the same kind of money, and definitely more friendliness in service.


Food was subpar, stall keeper tells customers that during CNY there's only one size for most dishes (paid for the large pricing but servings didn't justify) and worst menu prices were hiked. This 6-dishes meal cost us $85 in total.
