Fan Play Savouries – Savour Authentic Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun in Singapore

Ipoh in Malaysia is famous for so many dishes, for which Hor Fun and Chee Cheong Fun comes immediately to mind. Both are flat rice noodle dishes, so white, smooth and silky.

Updated: Tip Top Curry Puff at Plaza Singapura has closed. My guess is that the store did not keep up with its original standards of cripsy hot piping puffs with rich fillings of potato and chicken chunks.

The Battle of the Bubble Teas – Which Cup Is Worth Your Wait?

Once upon a time, there were Quickly, Cool Station, Milk Girl and Happy Cup, all once taken over the country by storm in 2001, and left almost just as fast. We have seen papa rotis and donuts through this phase before. But none, and I mean none, has reached the amazing queue lines caused by […]

Woobbee – Another Bubble Tea In The House

Bubble Tea, Bubble Tea everywhere. And will this bubble (no pun intended) burst? There is a new kid in the Tanjong Pagar Plaza block, not another Taiwanese franchise but a local setup selling a home brand of bubble tea. Something to be proud of.
