Just before our group of foodies went to Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh for dinner, we made a quick stop at a coffeeshop nestled amid the quiet residential area of Bedok South Avenue 3 for dessert first. The humble stall is named No Name Cheng Tng and I find it quite amazing that it can survive the rental and other operating costs by selling only one type of dessert, what else but... cheng tng! Before you dismiss it as just another ordinary frequently eaten Asian dessert, this No Name Cheng Tng is so outstanding that it has already caught the attention of our local makan guru, KF Seetoh, and was invited to participate in the inaugural World Street Food Congress in Singapore last year. No mean feat for a 'no name' stall.

It takes a good reason for me to wake up early on a Saturday morning and one of it is the lure of good food. I'm happy to report that the trip to Malaysia Boleh! (meaning Malaysia Can!) at Jurong Point was extremely worth the "all-the-way-to-the-west" long travel and precious "for-yummy-calories-only" tummy space. Some of my friends thought that I was in the neighboring country when my Instagram account began to get flooded with photos of delicious dishes best representative of Malaysia, but a stamp on the passport is not needed, all of it can be savored in Singapore!

Really grateful to have awesome and understanding friends who patiently waited more than an hour for me to finish my work, so that we can go ahead with our plans to have dinner at Imperial Treasure Steamboat Restaurant. The venue was also partly chosen to accommodate 'swamp-with-work' me, it being situated at Triple One Somerset along Orchard Road which is just 3 minutes away from my office. I literally ran over to meet them. What can I say? I felt very 感动! What can we say? We were all totally famished!!! Let's get hot and steamy! Quick!

Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal Grill Restaurant @ Boat Quay ~ Enjoy Japanese Wagyu Beef By The Singapore River
I had absolutely no idea what's in for lunch except that we're going to have barbeque at a Japanese restaurant located somewhere along Boat Quay (I just follow Daniel! lol). Felt much gladness when it turned out to be a pleasant dining experience by the Singapore River with views of some landmark buildings. If it's lovely in the afternoon, it will be lovelier in the evening. Arashi Yakiniku Charcoal Grill Restaurant certainly knows how to choose their location.

If you can have your own café, how would it be like? Fellow blogger Kimberly made hers focus on providing really good coffee and desserts with a takeaway concept, found a cozy corner place within The Plaza at Parkroyal hotel on Beach Road to house it, and named it Mean Bean & Wicked Grind (MBWG). I also want. But since I don't have, the next best thing is to visit and give her some support.

We already had our tummies filled with Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul, Assam Laksa and Rojak, but a trip to Penang wouldn't be complete without Penang Char Koay Teow! So off we went to Kafe Heng Huat at Lorong Selamat, Georgetown, where one of the best and most delicious char koay teow in Penang can be found.
The hawker auntie manning the stall is as famous as the char koay teow itself. Always wearing a red beret, sometimes with goggles over her eyes, her alleged arrogance and temperamental responses towards customers' complaints about high prices and long waiting time has earned her quite a notorious reputation among the locals. A Facebook campaign was even set up to encourage people to boycott her stall. Wah, so controversial! But we care about none of that! We just wanna eat the char koay teow! Lol!

Woohoo there's a food fight going on at Burger VS Wings + Bar (B.W.B.) at the rooftop garden of Orchard Central! Who like burgers? Who like wings? Which will win over our hearts and palates? The competition heats up as the chefs at this new American-style restaurant attempts to tempt us with their creations!

In Hana Yori Dango (花より男子), it is said that "A pair of good shoes will bring you to good places". I don't wanna dispute that for it might very well hold true for some of you, but I can be very very sure to say this: "A craving for food will bring me to a lot of food places!"
I was missing the kushikatsu izakaya experience during my previous visit in Tokyo where I was served panko (breadcrumbs) coated deep-fried items on skewers 'omakase-style' non-stop until I told the chef to stop. We then pay for what we ate according to the number of our skewers. I wonder if there's a similar concept here in Singapore that serves kushikatsu or tempura. A quick asking on twitter and facebook throws up recommendations of Tenshin, Aoki and HAN. Arrangement was soon made to visit HAN Japanese Restaurant at Odeon Towers (near City Hall mrt) with Nat for lunch.

Gunther's Modern French Cuisine @ Purvis Street ~ The Cold Angel Hair Pasta With Oscietra Caviar Is a Must-Try!
Having been to Gunther's Modern French Cuisine at Purvis Street a couple of months earlier during Singapore Restaurant Week, I was totally smitten with Chef Gunther Hubrechsen's spectacular cold angel hair pasta and told myself I will definitely want to return again for another experience of that awesome deliciousness. It wasn't so much of a planned visit though, as we called the restaurant for a table just before going over, but thankfully, the courteous voice on the other side of the line said they are able to accommodate us. Tongue and tummy, you are blessed! LOL!

BFF and I were at Bedok South Food Centre to eat Hillstreet Fried Kway Teow but just one plate where got enough? LOL! Our eyes wandered to the nearby snaking queue and decided to check out what hawker delight is the people waiting for. It turned out to be Hock Seng Choon Fish Ball Kway Teow which is actually quite a popular stall and has been around in this food centre for over 20 years! We of course felt the mandatory urge to order a bowl and try!
