    There were so many different types of steamed dumplings on the dim sum menu and we were spoilt for choices. Since it was our first time to Crystal Jade Palace, we took the safe option and went for the ubiquitous Steamed Prawn Dumpling s ($5). It was fairly decent, the translucent skin...

    I have to admit that I seldom eat the Teochew braised duck, and I blame everything on the roasted duck. Every time I step inside a hawker center, I will tell myself to have braised duck rice, but somehow my head will always turn back and ogle at the roasted duck. It’s kinda, sorta, al...

    Sole Pomodoro Tasting: Clash of the Crusts

    At the end of the session the eight diners were polled to see which crust they preferred — the result was six to two in favour of the Sole Pomodoro crust. Granted, eight Singaporeans do not a good sample size make, but I think the results did help to confirm Gerri and Mauro's suspicio...

    misstamchiak.com 14 Mar '11, 9am

    在新加坡迅速发展过程中,一些值得保留的地方无奈被拆除了。甘榜罗弄万国(Kampong Lorong Buangkok)是新加坡最后的一个甘榜村落。它的未来是个谜,所以对这个地方格外珍惜。 小村落非常隐秘,没有醒目的路标,路上都铺满了麻包袋、塑胶垫和木板。 处都能看见香蕉树和椰树,群鸟在电缆上歇憩,非常像60年代的村落环境,充满了田园风光。 如今,整个甘榜共有28户人家,华人10户,马来人18户。居民都是自己搭建锌板屋,村长只收地租,每月地租从6元5角到30元不等。老居民过着悠闲写意的日子,在锌板屋外与邻居话家常或修剪花草享受慢活。他们非常友善,平时也不将大门深锁,...

    Sin Ming Roti Prata(Faisal & Aziz Curry)

    misstamchiak.com 14 Mar '11, 1am

    现在的熟食小贩大多都有一套“独门秘方”,就连“Sin Ming Roti Prata(Faisal & Aziz Curry)”的印度煎饼,也能凭“秘方”把食客从各地引来。 老摊主Haj Mohammed在80年代于Cluny Court开设摊位,后来搬迁到Sin Ming。由于年纪已经不小,摊位现在由儿子Almali Faisal掌管。为了应付络绎不绝的顾客,父子俩聘用了四五名帮手,小小摊位有如此阵容,亦属少见。 Haj Mohammed的祖先来自有印度煎饼之乡之称的钦奈(Chennai),印度第四大城市。续承父亲的食谱后,他30多年来用的都是南印度的食谱。为迎...
