Chef-owner Geri employs staff who are autistic, have intellectual disabilities, or with physical disabilities including the wheelchair bound.

To be honest, this is a seldom talked-about subject in Singapore, and many people may not know how best to communicate with the staff there.

They feel the proudest when the staff get a sense of independence and self-worth, because there are those who stay at home and eventually find it more difficult to integrate into society.

This is also opportunity for students to learn how to interact with people who may seem to be different from them.

Geri also shared difficulties in getting fundings, the red tape, the long wait etc.
So well... DFD decided to sponsor them their new POS system, just a little something to help the staff in their way, and because they taught me when Love is.
When we give, we receive much much. All the best My NoNNa’s team!

Kok Kee’s winning element was probably the special secret recipe sauce, poured all over the springy noodles with an agreeable bite.

To be honest, the thin char siew (that sometimes borders on tasting card-boardy) and pretty-average wantons were nothing to shout about.

BUT the overall combination was sumptuously addictive, and can keep fans coming back again and again.

Udon Kamon @udonkamonsg is a NEW Udon Restaurant, offering the widest range of broths in Singapore.
These include Kyoto-style dashi soup broths, tonkotsu soup broths, a spicy Tom Yam soup broth, and an equally intense spicy Magma broth.
Check out Prawn Tonkotsu Udon,
creamy and flavoursome added with Sakura Ebi.

When I heard about the Afro café Kafe Utu at Jiak Chuan Road (next to Keong Saik Road), I initially wasn’t sure what to expect, half-wondering if it would be another gimmicky place.

Then I did a mini-tour of the space, and realised they mean serious business.

Check out the specially hand-carved doors and water glasses hand-blown from Kenya, ceramic coffee cups and saucers, leather menus and bill folders, to the 8M long African Mahogany banquet table.

The attention to details is amazing. You can view the video to have a look at its interior.

Yuan Xiao Jie 元宵节 also known as The Lantern Festival marks the end of the 15 days of Chinese New Year celebrations.

This is the day we have Tang Yuan, sweet glutinous rice balls filled with peanut paste, black sesame, red bean or taro.
This symbolises abundance and togetherness.
Happy Yuan Xiao to you.... and may you find the one you love.

Think people are most familiar with the stalls at Bedok 85, and maybe Bedok 58.

How about one nearer the CBD?

Thanks to @littlemissbento for recommending, I actually ALWAYS eat at this coffee shop (the roast meats) but never see this stall as it is hidden inside. The location is Neil Road, to find it go to the end of Keong Saik.

Soon Heng Minced Pork Noodles serves up the soupy version of Minced Pork Noodles. It’s light yet flavourful in a non-intimidating sort of way, when you want some comforting hot noodles to make your tummy feel warm.
Boss is a friendly guy. Too bad only opens weekdays morning to lunch.
Any other Bak Chor Mee SOUP versions to recommend? Other than the Bedok 85/58 ones? Comment below!

I was curious about Jia Yi Wan 加一碗, which specialises in Penang cuisine.

The eatery serves up Penang Curry Noodles ($5.80), Claypot Mee Tai Mak ($7.80), Chicken Horfun Soup ($5.80), Penang Prawn Noodles ($6.80), Penang Lor Mee ($5.80) and Penang Char Kway Teow ($5.80), and sounds rather promising.

One of their winning elements is also the murals on their brick walls, painted by a local Penang artist, incorporating many iconic images of Penang and 3D elements.

Good place to catch up with friends, especially after a musical at Westend.
Compared to many ramen shops in say Singapore which are more “functional”, there are more ramen bars here where you can gather over bites and drinks.
More energy and louder music generally.
Here’s their Hakata tonkotsu ramen, a style of ramen made with a thick, rich, white pork soup and thin, straight ramen noodles.

That works out to be SGD17 or USD14, very affordably priced considering London IS one of the most expensive cities in the world.

And what really sealed the deal was that the steak was tasty – juicy and tender; the dining environment cool matched with casual, friendly service.

There may be other versions around, but this is the real deal.

There was a sense of familiarity as the place was decorated like many of the OCK cafe concepts in Singapore, but I cannot help feel that the place felt a bit ‘old’. I know it is decorated to represent ‘heritage’ but it was perhaps a combination of the colour scheme and how its upkeep was attended to.

The Original Curry Puff tasted almost like how it would at home – the fillings and all, with the exception of the crimping on the edges, which to me is quite an essential part of a delicious curry puff.

If I were to nit-pick, it wasn’t as piping hot as I wished.

There were curious tourists who dropped in and ordered items such as Black Pepper Tuna and Creamy Chicken & Mushroom Puffs. Wanted to just call out, “Nooooooo…” to them, but well, it’s their choice. And whatever that pops out.

If you miss Singapore in London or in need of a quick bite before a show at West End, I still think it is a worthy place to drop by.

As you look up to the top and read from right to left, you would notice the words 康元 which means Khong Guan.

The lower floor is now occupied by Alchemist, which first started out as as small takeaway coffee outpost in the CBD at International Plaza, Tanjong Pagar.

I also liked the environment, not as echoey as expected, with various seating arrangements, and decorative traces of the old heritage building. Look at the flooring.
