Bak Chor Mee (肉脞面) is a uniquely Singaporean dish that represents our love for pork! Honestly, it uses so many parts of a pig, from various parts of the meat, to even the liver. All this is great, especially when paired with the vinegar-braised mushrooms. Who can say no to this awesome noodly dish?
Chinese rojak is one of the many popular dishes that’s famous not jusst because of it’s sweet and sour flavours, combined with the crispiness of the you tiao and tau pok.

The weekend is here again! And what better way to enjoy it than to cook up a storm and share this treat with family and friends?

Ahhhh Popiah, the local oriental burrito. A delicacy for all palates, this is one well loved dish by both locals and foreign friends visiting. what’s great about Popiah is that it provide different texture and flavours in a single bite, from the crunch from the peanuts and the fried pork skin (or other fired fritters) to the fresh and crispy vegetables matches really well with the sweet flour sauce and spicy sambal.
