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 ...

Thai Village, Stadium Walk, Kallang

All change at Kallang it seems. New car parks, shops closing, shops opening, shops moving - restaurants opening, closing and relocating. Thai Village moves to Indoor Stadium from Kallang Shopping Centre. Now taking over the same space as originally used for two of our other much like restaurants - Le Bistro and Mushroom Pot. So the picture above is actually the old address inside Kallang Shopping Centre, don't go there as all there is is while bill boards now. We talk a lovely family walk ...

245 East Coast Lagoon Hawker – known as ‘the local’

Off to my local this Sunday! Few pints and some bar food with the family - nice!!! Not like you UK local, usually an interior room, sport on TV etc. This is Singapore, where you spend 70% of your time outdoors. So my local is thus to. I am placing this in my 'a hawker, a hawker' section because this is where my local is. Have a trip to Lagoon Hawker Centre, East Coast Service Road. It's worth a visit.

The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, Hosted by Singapore

The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, hosted by Singapore I got a few SMS pouring in from my mate, Steve, late one Saturday night - "Ring me dickhead, I need you to be the judge in a cooking competition tomorrow." And so started The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, Hosted by Singapore. I pinged a message back to him, initially sort of declining as a friend was over from UK. Something along the lines of; "When, where and who is cooking?" I thought perfectly within my rights to ask such ...

Tuck Shop Geylang – finger food with truffles

You want these don't you - but where to buy... Funny story, but short story. I played football for Ollie's old school last night, and as usual we scoot back to Tuck Shop, Geylang. I was last to leave and went to pay. Completely forgot I had given Mary my other card this am to go to ATM to get some cash. Now I realise this place does not accept Amex and my other UPB card is not working - whoopsy. So I had to leave my UOB card there, give some ID to verify it is me, and commit to be back ...

Hai Tien Lo – Pan Pacific, Singapore

Save and get your arse here... A sad occasion for us every year on 5th Feb when we have to realise it is the anniversary of my lovely wife, Nina's death. We 'celebrate' her not commiserate her. We normally do that with BBQ's at our condo, but this year Ollie and I decided we should have a meal for family only. So off we go, Mary, Ollie, Amy, Jude, Glenda and I. Where did we go. To Nina's favourite restaurant - Hai Tien Lo at Pan Pacific. And my was I so glad we did. It was ...
