  • Keep tongue in cheek when you confront Kwan Brothers, the latest addition to the Constance and Alfred Street entertainment corner.

  • Whenever I get together with like-minded foodies, our conversation always includes the recent restaurants we have visited and the candid thoughts we had about our meals. Gordita came recommended as one to definitely try. And who am I to argue against a recommendation from fellow foodies?

  • I don’t talk about Siam Square Thai Restaurant much and haven’t blogged about it, because it’s our local and I selfishly want to keep it to myself. We also often order takeaway and photographing their food in those plastic takeaway containers doesn’t do it any justice.

  • Peng You's menu surprisingly reminds me a lot of my mother's cooking, especially the crispy marinated chicken, Steamed baby barramundi and slow cooked pork trotter. It's simple food, where even the garnish is meant to be eaten and it doesn't have too much fuss about it.
