Dean Briyani Hyderabad. A Hidden Gem in TNB Staff Quarters in Kempas


Dean Briyani Hyderabad was one of the first restaurants I shared in Johor Kaki blog back in 2012. Six years on, I can't remember the details of Dean Briyani except for fond memories of how much I enjoyed it. So when Dean invited me to drop by his restaurant, I thought it was timely to revisit.

Kukoh 21 Food Centre Ri Tao Fu. Best Teochew Pig's Organ Soup in my Memory


Today's makan outing was at the old Kukoh 21 Food Centre, off Chin Swee Road (near Chinatown). Our usual thing at hawker centres is to order food from a few stalls and share. Our table was already full of food when Catherine brought back this pork organ soup. At that time, I already set my sights on another dish and so just took obligatory shots of the pork organ soup. I didn't even bother to take it off the serving tray - too much food already and pork organ soup wasn't on my Must Eat list.

Making Sak Kei Ma at Chinatown Tai Chong Kok Hue Kee 牛車水大中國餅家餘記


Soon after I blogged about Pan Ji stall in Chinatown and stated that it is the only place in Singapore I know that makes Sak Kei Ma by hand, I was introduced to Chinatown Tai Chong Kok (Hue Kee) - the famous old name in Chinatown which also makes Sak Kei Ma by hand 😄 I am so grateful for the opportunity to observe how Chinatown Tai Chong Kok (Hue Kee) make the iconic pastry, the traditional way.

Yuet Loy. Amazing Little Canto Zhi Char in Chinatown Complex Food Centre 悦来熟食 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Yuet Loy Cooked Food 悦来熟食 is a well loved little stall #02-151 in the quiet, narrow, outer fringe of the Red Zone of Chinatown Complex Food Centre. It is a hidden gem which celebrity chefs and overseas food critics quietly visit incognito, like their secret hideout which they hide jealousy. It's the nondescript type of stall which one can walk past a hundred times and not know what treasures are inside. That would be such a terrible waste.

Singapore Song Fish Head Pioneer. Seng Kee 119. Chinatown Complex Food Centre


Steamed Song fish head is a popular dish among Cantonese from Guangdong who brought it to the world beyond. The best place in Singapore to get the quintessentially Cantonese dish is Chinatown Complex Food Centre - there are over a dozen Song fish head stalls here. Kreta Ayer 牛車水 (the original name of Chinatown) was a Cantonese enclave, and there are still pockets of old school Cantonese food here.
