Delivery from Nouri on Amoy Street in Singapore

This place isn’t cheap (72 Amoy Street, 6221-4148). But it’s a one Michelin-starred restaurant, and I figured that I might as well indulge now that we’re nearly out of the circuit breaker period. They do “crossroads cooking,” which is basically…

Takeaway from Ye Lai Xiang Teochew Porridge

I wasn’t quite sure how one would do takeaway for Teochew porridge, but the guy here at the Kim San Leng Coffeeshop basically put it all in one box for me (116 Bukit Merah View #01-217). I liked everything that…

Korea Slow Trip – Essential Jeju in One Day

Is this even possible? Now I’m certainly not advocating traveling all the way to breathtaking Jeju-do — UNESCO World Heritage Site and seafood capital of Korea — and spending just one or two nights. That’s just shortchanging yourself. But for…

Lumo at the CMO Building in Singapore

This open kitchen and cocktail bar opened up just before the circuit breaker period (50 South Bridge Road #01-00, 8921-3818). They’re doing delivery now with some aggressive discounts, and some small plates and booze sounded great. I was happy with…

My First Taste of a Kiwano Horned Melon

These exotic-looking spiky fruits were at the market recently, naturally piquing our curiosity. This one was from New Zealand, but they are native to Sub-Saharan Africa. And as you can see in the photo, it’s a bit of a melon…

Khansama Tandoori Restaurant in Singapore

I’ll admit that the main reason why I ordered from these guys today was because it was hard to forget the catchy tune that they run on YouTube (166 Serangoon Road, 6299-0300). The food was fine, with the butter paneer…

The Bunless Wrap Option at Five Guys

I regretted getting this bunless burger, as the heat from the patties ended up cooking that iceberg lettuce by the time we got home. Somehow, the one at Carl’s Jr. did a much better job of surviving the journey, perhaps…

The Traveling Hungryboy: My Own Little Butter Shootout: Échiré vs Bordier

I’ve always been a big fan of Échiré Butter. That stuff is so deliciously savory that it would help me wolf down loaves of bread without realizing it. But recently. we got our hands on some Bordier butter, which has…

Mister Potato x Daebak Limited Edition Ghost Pepper Black Crisps

When I bit into one of these, it was much more salty than it was spicy. In fact, it was excessively salty. And then I wondered to myself why the Daebak ghost pepper flavoring wasn’t spicy. Just as I was…

Mala Xiang Guo From Hua Shuang Kitchen

This is a mala xiangguo chain with stalls across the island. They made ours pleasantly spicy, but to my surprise, it was also totally lacking salt, making it rather boring. I’m not sure if they intentionally dialed it down or…

Korea Slow Trip – Snow Storm on Subtropical Jeju Island

It would have been the classic winter scenery at Uji or Shizuoka, endless rows of immaculately manicured tea plants dusted in powdery white like icing sugar on a matcha pound cake. Ferocious snow storms thumped the floor-to-ceiling windows, catching even…

Trying Out Haldiram’s Bhujia Sev

I picked these up at a corner store, mainly because of what the packaging said: “Bikaneri famous hot-n-spicy extruded fried Indian snack” from Haldiram’s. And hot and spicy it was indeed. The heat builds up after a few handfuls, making…
