It started with another email thread again, this time Camemberu suggested to check out the famous Founder Bak Ku Teh and a date was set. I don’t usually write posts about hawker food. It’s not like I don’t eat hawker food, but the problem is I have too many backlogs of the nice places that I went recently.
I met Bob Blumer, the Surreal Gourmet.
Calm down people, calm down! I know you are excited at the sight of your favourite chef!
I have been looking for nice kway chap for a while now, but I can’t seem to find them though.My latest hunt brought me to Tiong Bahru Market, a quick glance around resulted in two stores selling kway chap, and i chose this store over the other because this store had a slightly longer queue than the other on that day.
Food are always associated with places, like when you think of Laksa, Katong laksa instantly comes into mind. And there are also instances when you passed by a particular place, say Maxwell food centre, i dare say people will remember Tian Tian chicken rice as one of the stalls to go to.
Let’s shift our focus to Tiong Bahru, there are quite a lot of food that can triggered your fond memories, like the Tiong Bahru Lor mee, roast meat, bao, chicken rice and a few others. For some food like Nasi Lemak, you can probably named a few good ones like the Adam road and Punggol ones. But how about Chwee Kueh? When you think of Chwee Kueh, Tiong Bahru immediately comes into mind. This only goes to show how good the Tiong Bahu Chwee Kueh is!
” SINGAPORE – Singapore’s annual inflation rate hit a 25-year high of 6.6 percent in January, according to Department of Statistics (DOS) data released on Monday.

You must be thinking whether LIC has gone nuts writing food reviews, or you must have step into the wrong place, not quite like your impression of a food blog. Don’t just read the start, you need to finish the story!
Loh Mei specialist is a store in the People’s Park food centre at Chinatown. “Ru wei” or braised meat, is very famous and commonly found in Taiwan, but somehow in Singapore, its not the case. Thus its good to see a store delicated to selling this alone.
To relieve the pain of not able to eat good food, lets us see the yummy yummy eaten during last weekend. Early in the morning (well not really early), meet up with sp, wh, and hy for breakfast. Prata’s at Alif Restaurant, a “prominent” coffee shop selling pratas at Bukit Gombak. I’m sure you have seen it before if you been to Gombak.
Anyway, breakfast is suppose to be early right? But we had sort of a brunch because someone was late. *i’m not blaming you all right? lol
Tiong Bahru Lor Mee ($2.50)
Met up with Val, Serene, vyonne, lyn for lunch, went to Tiong Bahru market.
Price: $2, $2.5, $3
Verdict: Taste not bad, although the serving was a tad small
Serene got the famous Tiong Bahru Chee Kwah. I think got three stores claim that they are the original one, no idea which is the one, anyway Serene say the price increase again, mayb the boss say the “cai po” price increase because of GST hike. LOL!!
