Satay by the Bay – Pide…

Have you ever tried Pide? Have you ever had a doner kebab? Have you ever had pizza? Have you ever had doner kebab pizza, with some chili sauce? Nope - well my friends that is indeed what Pide is. A Turkish flatbread, traditionally prepared and served during Ramadan. It can have different toppings, different toppings that enable it to become quite a common Turkish meal. Now I have never had, so this was indeed a 1st for me. WOW!!! Bloody nice, served with an icy cold beer. Fantastic. Yes ...

Han Jia Bak Kut Teh, East Coast Lagoon Foodcourt – I want to marry pork leg

Get a taxi now, get to Lagoon Hawker on East Coast Service Road. Visit this amazing hawker as in the picture in the header. If you like pork. If you like pork that has been slow cooked for what must be days. If you like pork that has been slow cooked in spices, leaving an unctuous black gravy to die for. If you like pork that melts in your mouth, which is good as you can't be quick enough to get the next helping in your gob. If you like eating melt in the mouth pork with an ice cold ...

Viva Mexico, Cuppage Road – ariba

Not a Tex Mex in sight. Again this must have been a fate experience. Off we all trot to a new Toys R Us, called Express Toys R Us as due to Amy's recently tooth falling out she had some cash burning a hole in her little pocket. She wanted to buy jumping beans (weren't they originally Mexican Jumping Beans?? Read on.) Sadly they had none so she bought some other bits. Where is this shop - it is the new CentrePoint shopping Centre on Orchard Road, next to this is Cuppage Road. Cuppage ...

Quite proud of myself actually – EXMag

For the past few months I have been writing a 'column' of sorts for a local bloke's magazine EX. Usual format though is that my recipe goes in and someone else cooks it and rates it, their photo and experience type thing - of course I am still very happy with that, to be in print and all that. Well this months edition came recently and hey presto I am now in it. Now they name me and describe me as a "food author", can you believe it. I really have impressed myself. WOW!!! It truly is not ...

Late lunch with Simon & Dani – Thank you both SO very much

I am rubbish you know. Seriously not enough photos of our lovely late lunch today - should have had more group shots and the like, and clearly more of the food. But it sort of arrived and we ate it - ha ha! Seriously good fun, as we all helped try to clear the Xmas & Boxing Day fridge. In attendance; Simon, Dani and boys x3, Granny Fae up from Australia, Dave & Jacqui and kids x2, Mary and I and kids x3 and remotely on Skype Craig & Katherine and kids x2. Lovely!!! A major ...

DB Bistro Moderne

DB Bistro Moderne Hmmm well I thought this man, this chef, a tad arrogant - well he is French after all, but... I have to say this restaurant is bloody good. Food it top drawer. Save your money though as it isn't cheap. I welcome you to DB Bistro Moderne @ Marina Bay Sands. Off I went to take Amy to Hi5 one day, and then after Mary, Ollie and Jude joined us to go to lunch. Where to go? We are in Marina Bay Sands, in the theatre - what's that opposite a pizza joint, excellent. Ahhhh ...

Din Tai Fung

Din Tai Fung Seriously for price, for taste, for ease, for the casual and family atmosphere you really cannot beat Din Tai Fung. I think this is now voted as the best Chinese restaurant chain in Singapore (actually it is Taiwanese - but don't tell any one!!!). We have been in so many different branches of this place all over the island of Singapore, and it always exceptional quality and exceptional taste. It is just so so good as a restaurant. We started off going here when Nina and I ...

A quick Segway of food in Cambodia

Quite amazing what you see on the menus in very nice establishments in Cambodia. One our last night we ate deep fried - water boatmen, cockroaches, crickets etc. But on a trip to Friends Restaurant it got a tad freaky actually, both inside and out. So 1st up let's get the drinks a flowing please bartender. This is a belter - pineapple margarita with chill - oh yes, it is just sublime, incredible in fact. I have made this one at home too. What to eat, hmmm what to eat. I like the ...
