Empress Place @ LTN Siglap

Empress Place @ LTN Siglap Come on Belinda belt it out love!!! "Oooh heaven is a place on earth..." Nice song Belinda - but the relevance is what. It is our hawker in Siglap - that is just about as close as heaven on earth can get. Food is incredible, so are the people - now our family friends, so are our neighbours. Drink flows fast and of course it is exceptional value. I cannot get enough. Now I know I have shared Death Row Cuisine with you before from Mr David Lim, well I am going to ...

The Common Man Coffee Roasters – what a lunch…

Where did I go for lunch today? A little off my usual beaten track. Off to a new place for me with Grant my friend and colleague. Off to Robinson Quay, near to work, near to where Grant lives. I have to say the food was right up there on the 'price-o-meter', but it was a pretty damn funky place, and the food was pretty damn good too. As I sat there it reminded me of days in Melbourne, eating out in cafe culture, usually urban in style like this place, wafts of good coffee and local Austra...

Soy Eu Tua, chicken rice, Siglap – more please

Siglap beers one Saturday (as usual) and I get advised that I must try the chicken rice at the hawker on the corner just down the road from the hawker we were already in drinking beers and eating. Now this joint I have walked past but never entered - in fact last time was quiz night at Picotin, flipping expensive that place is with real 'average' food. So yep lets go local and not venture as far down as that this time. So come to the corner of East Coast Road and Jalan Tua Kong. Come to ...

Empress Place, LTN Foodcourt Siglap & beef kway teow

Empress Place, LTN Foodcourt Siglap & beef kway teow We seriously love Siglap. Our lazy days at our hawker.  Meeting new friends. Chatting, and exchanging laughs and having a few beers with great food. We just love it. One great example of that supreme quality is our mate Dave Lim, at Empress Place, LTN Foodcourt Siglap & beef kway teow. This was referred by me as 'death row cuisine' in another blog and in an article I wrote for  EXMag some time ago when we first moved here to ...

Sin Hoi Eating House on East Coast Road – a favourite

Simply known as Joe's to us... Or you could give it it's official title of Sin Hoi Sai Eating House. Located at 187 East Coast Road. There is no doubt of how good this restaurant is, just look at the fact that every table is taken and people are spilling out on to the street. Literally. They have inside and outside seating, but the outside is a must as you get this vibrancy experience, the hustle of the street, as well as access to some of the very best food in Singapore in my book. ...

Fried chicken skin at Liberty Bar on Beach Road

Just for this it was worth it... A new drinking hole when with some of my clients and friends or both. Liberty Bar on Beach Road, near the corner of Arab Street. A nice place. Friendly staff. Cheap drinks. Food, you know I don't know of they do. It is indeed nestled between food courts and the like. But do they do food. No idea!!! What made that statement different this time??? First to explain - most of the staff are Filipino. So this time I was chatting re Fiesta time with Mary and ...

Sushi Tei on East Coast Service Road – you can’t beat it…

"Where for lunch kids?", says I... "Sushi Tei!", says they... It is indeed true - you cannot beat a bit of Sushi Tei. Value wise and quality wise it is just great Japanese food. So of course off we went - to Big Splash. What did we eat - holy cow a hell of a lot, but all SO SO good. Very much a recommendation of mine this place, sort of the Japanese version in Din Tai Fung. Family oriented, mid range price and just real good quality food. Lovely. Bit of a queue today, which is always a ...

Colbar on a Sunday, or now called Cor-howmuch-Bar!!!

Yes we ventured to Colbar today for lunch with our mates The Rusiecki's. Now we have not been there for quite a while. Clearly some time it became evident as the prices seem to have doubled. Ouch. Now all those that have been to Colbar will know it is a no-frills place, renowned for that chicken curry that reminds you of home, it's been there years, run by 3 generations of ladies. Well none of that charm has changed. But as I said the pricing sure has. I had a gammon steak, chips, egg and ...
