There’s this little hawker centre in Toa Payoh Lorong 5 that comes alive in the evening. Yup, they do mostly dinner and supper business. A few stalls are familiar haunts of the residents in the area, like this fried Hokkien prawn noodle stall.

I got to meet Bob Blumer! Omigosh, I’m still so excited!! Ok, got to control my excitement for now. I was very honored to be invited by Discovery Travel & Living for a cooking workshop with Bob Blumer, celebrity chef/host of Surreal Gourmet and his latest series Glutton for Punishment. The other 40 or so [...]
This is the branch of the famous Clementi Brothers Rojak. While some people say the original outlet is better, I feel that the branch is still better than most average rojak stalls.

To start with, nasi (rice) with the prerequisite veggie and must-order-at-every-nasi-padang-meal bergedil. No earth-shattering moment here.

Technically, it’s in Keng Kwee Street off Penang Road. But no worries, just ask and the friendly locals will point you to the right direction! Interestingly, [...]
Let’s take a break from the Penang trip posts! I was surprised to see a new stall at this Clementi coffee shop which we drop by from time to time. Then again, I’m happy that Myanmar cuisine is making its presence in the HDB heartland. I’m still discovering Myanmar cuisine, and the more I do, [...]
