Big Roy Visits The Food & Electronics Fiesta – Singapore Expo Hall 5


Checked out the Food & Electronics Fiesta today slightly after lunch hour. Dunno why Food and Electronics are put together, but I reckon they do not have enough exhibitors participating in the event. Marketing the booths are not easy, so maybe they should rebrand their event a little bit. However that said, many booths are…

1980烧肉粽(中山路店) – Xiamen, Guangdong, China


As the name suggested, this place was founded in 1980 selling rice dumplings or bak zhang in SG terms. This place came highly recommended and since I was in Zhongshang Road, I went ahead to try their food. Rating: 4/5.  Taste: 4/5. It’s a typical Xiamen or Minnan food eated by the locals. For me…

Eat @ B5 – Genting Highlands, Malaysia


Yeah I’m on a roll writing Genting food ‘cos I really need to clear all the food that I reckon worthy (or not!) in my backlogs. This foodcourt place has been there for the longest time, originally opened for the bus and taxi drivers but now more people are actually eating there now. Recently renovated,…

WOH HENG ALA-CARTE – GENTING HIGHLANDS, MALAYSIA


Funny I’ve never written about the food in Genting Highlands… I visit this gambling paradise annually with my mom (sounds like a jackpot pilgrimage!) for years! And not surprisingly, we went again during December when I was back in Singapore. This time we stayed at the First World Hotel where it was convenient for my…

康家龙头海蛎煎(龙头路一店) – Gulangyu, Xiamen, China


After the wonderful experience at the coffee place of 褚家园咖啡馆, I walked through the back alleys to discover many nice B&Bs and more street food. But I was pretty locked in to try one of the famous oyster omelette in Xiamen, hence skipped the rest. Oyster Omelette is pretty well known in Guangdong, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia…

Taiwan Food Street (台湾小吃街) – Xiamen, China


First time in Xiamen and totally excited over all the hype I got from my friends and documentaries about the food there. Fact is, because of it’s close proximity to Taiwan, you’ll find many similar food types to Taiwan over here. I was a little skeptical because I’ve been to Taipei and the food there…

MQ Coffee Slayer Lab – Shanghai, China


After reaching Shanghai in the afternoon today, I rushed to check out this cafe which has a roasting factory, 2 cafe outlets and a training center for aspiring baristas. I found them online and know that they roast their own beans. I took the cab and headed to their training center and realized they don’t…
