Seriously, this severely under-the-radar chicken rice stall needs more accolades.

This is another one of my trusty, go-to stalls in Bukit Merah Central Food Centre. It’s just next to Day Night Fried Kway Teow. Regulars at this hawker centre would be familiar with this stall. During lunch hour, a 20 min wait is the norm. So just what’s the appeal about this stall? I think [...]
I’ve heard quite a lot about this food stall at the basement of Katong Shopping Centre that supposedly serves excellent chicken rice. Finally had the chance to try it out while on a Katong trip with mom-in-law and the kids.

There’s at least one Hainanese chicken rice stall to be found in any Singapore hawker centre, food court, or coffee shop. Yet, it’s been a long time since I found one that’s worthy of mention. Leong’s version may not be the best, but it certainly ranks as one of the most memorable chicken rice I’ve [...]

This is one of the rare times that I’ve tasted moist and tender turkey! Together with misstamchiak, Justin, Keropokman, Hungry Cow, and Jasper & Saunders, we checked out the Christmas lunch buffet at Plaza Brasserie at the invitation of PARKROYAL on Beach Road.
