2 amazing new hawker finds…

2 amazing new hawker finds... I love gardening leave. It is giving me time during the day to be with #1 the last couple of days. What have we been doing? Food exploring together. Yesterday I had an interview so was out West and on the way drove past Timbre+. Remember me mentioned our mate @DaveLim @Empress leaving Siglap Hawker? Well, his son has opened at Timbre+, so I dragged Ollie over to meet me for lunch after the interview. So Timbre+ is number one of 2 amazing new hawker finds... Tim...

ChillaxBBQ Tomas – hallowed ground

ChillaxBBQ Tomas - hallowed ground The crew at ChillaxBBQ pride ourselves on our steaks. We think we cook them to perfection, and actually, perfection can be quite simple. So this is ChillaxBBQ Tomas - hallowed ground. We hate Sous Vide so we reverse sear, a new concept we have been practising since starting XChillaxBBQ as a concept. In fact, you can apply this methodology to all BBQ food. Hey, you don't want to poison anyone with raw chicken or pork right? Well, we assume so. So reverse ...

Tono Cevicheria @ Dua Galleria with Wifey

Tono Cevicheria @ Duo Galleria with Wifey I had taken two additional days off after Vesak Day this year giving me a whopping 5 days off in a row. Now that is cool. I was able to spend time with the kids and wifey, showering Jude, getting him ready for bed, doing science with him before bed, and having lunch-times off with the wifey. Now you probably saw we went to Tonito’s again at Jewel so Amy and Ollie could experience it. We sort of indirectly met the Chef and Owner, Daniel Chavez, and ...

Meat Smith by Dave Pynt @ Makansutra Gluttons Bay

Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong

Chaoniu Hot Pot @ Katong It has happened again. Something new comes to East Coast to allow us to have another culinary adventure. And boy oh boy is this a cracker.

Yes, you veggies stop reading now. One ...

Jewel & Tonito’s for round #2

Jewel & Tonito's for round #2 Do you remember my previous blog of our trip here when Jimboy & Jhea were with us? Well, this time it is with the rest of the gang who have not been here with us yet. So for Mary and me, this is Jewel & Tonito's for round #2, but for Ollie, Amy and Jude it is round #1. We had to go back to Tonito's for them as this place is now becoming one of our favourite family restaurants, and it is literally just down the road for us. It just happens to be in an ...
