When Dad buys back my new found favourite Teochew Kuehs on a WFH day - simple moments to appreciate (!!)

Precious cheap thrills to appreciate before they one day retire from business; the soft homely kueh skins here are truly a hallmark of this establishment that has been in business since 1974.

My purple Yam kueh had a purist yam paste that was so satisfying, for savoury variants the soon kueh and png kuehs (pictured, plated) are no brainers.


What new circumstances we’ve all had to adapt too- but I’m trying to be thankful for them. Take this banana cake for tea on a nice weekend afternoon after a trying week of (adjusting to and) working from home.
While this was an affordable option for 4 slices of banana cake- it only left me wondering where I could find better (/the best) banana cakes in Singapore.

Unexpectedly amazed at how good these flaky Chinese pastry was; the red bean actually tasted like red bean instead of the sugary purple paste you get from run of the mill red bean buns, pastries etc all over Singapore.

Michelin food at Jewel’s upscale food court, only at a slightly higher price point? I was definitely drawn. Try the silky smooth soft tofu cubes in the shallow bowl of mala oil and a healthy portion of minced meat was nice to pair with the plain noodles that were better than your average ubiquitous la mian.
What I really enjoyed was the supporting bowl of clear soup from a Japanese stock that I couldn’t get enough of; I don’t think you’d ever get better quality side bowl soups at food courts.

[Food Court] The hallmark of good thosai for me goes beyond a palatable lentil batter, but really chutney that taste the part. The Thosai here fits the bill as I taste bites of desiccated coconut shreds in the white milky sauce, and look at that tangy tomato variant in orange; with evident crushed mint leaves is the last variant in green.

Forgot how good the sourdough pizzas here were till I had them again over the weekends 🥰 that crisp ASMR worthy crust yet with a complementing chewiness. Save for the fact that I’d appreciate if one of the cheese used was stronger to add more flavour; this is by far one of my favourite places for pizzas ✨ att (also translates to) this “hawker” pizza FTW


Stall: Tiong Bahru Pau
这包子真好吃😋 hah my to go to for Chinese pau around my area. Also reminiscing my childhood favourite Tanglin Pau- you were dearly missed at that moment 😢 a reminder appreciate these Chinese delights that always satiate.


A coincidence (?) that I happen to have a similar dish 2 days in a row at different places; calling for inevitable comparisons.

Part I: French Toast

Pang of regret because I am no fan of possibly Fairprice bought-Gardenia bread despite the fresh fruits used 🙊

Hi amazing, slightly oily, thick battered thosai that was just the right pre meal before the Plain Jane next door 🤗


A random Saturday I had time to kill and was contemplating between commercial Yuan Yang (~>$2) but thought I should just try out Hola and that was the best decision I’ve made (recently). No skimping on the Carnation milk here and good Teh-Kopi blend.... at a cost of $1.50; a complete small win that made my Saturday ✨


The goal was to have India food at Tekka market but this was reality- when the Mother established that we had no car and the sun was being merciless so eating outdoors was not a great option.
That said $2.50, $3.50 for plain and masala thosai I’d happily pay because first aircon; and then this was one of the best renditions of Thosai I’ve had from a commercialised restaurant chain. Best? Yes, just look at the legit chutney that were not watered down.


Eat to live, live to eat. Alternating between the 2 all day err day?
