WHATTA WADEH!

We welcome back Chef-Owner of Summer Hill Bistro Anthony Yeoh this week and catch up on the big things have been happening with him, PLUS of course, get him to share some of his new local Makan discoveries!

HEAR:

  • Listen/ download podcast of Chef Tony talking about his new bistro: Part 1 & Part 2
  • Listen/ download podcast of this week’s sizzlingly crisp description of wadeh!

SEE:

Hands down, this is one of the best Wadeh (or Vadai, as some spell it) that Chef Tony has ever eaten (& Denise has to agree with him!), but to find it, it’s a bit of a treasure hunt because they don’t actually have a shop. They’re a travelling stall that operates solely out of Pasar Malams (night markets) across our island! But you’ll definitely smell and hear it frying before you see it. So Chef Tony was at Clementi running errands near his restaurant when he stumbled across a Pasar Malam. He noticed fresh Wadeh being made and he just had to give it a try.

Made-to-Order Fish & Chips

You know him as your NiteFlite pilot on Gold 905, but this week, he sets aside the flying for some swimming! So take a dip into the freshest seafood with Mr X at Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro, or in his words, his “Neighbourhood Chippy”.

Living just down the road from this Fishmonger/ Seafood Import/ Export establishment has its perks, especially when the craving for good old traditional British Fish & Chips hits and you want it as fresh as possible. As its name suggests, the “fish market” side provides you with the catch of the day – stroll in, pick your species, from a whole variety of fresh fish, oysters, crabs & even live lobsters in a tank. They’ll help you with your selection, clean and prep your choice for taking home.

Vernetta Lopez’s Fave Bak Kut Teh

Vernetta Lopez from early mornings on Gold 905 is our next Makan Kaki and she takes us to try one of her favourite places for Bak Kut Teh, or pork rib soup. We are well aware that everyone has their preferred regular place, especially along Balestier Road, but we can probably say this is one of the lesser-known BKT places that deserves a mention and a visit.

Ah Hak Bak Kut Teh has around for 30 years and you can tell the history when you walk in. You’ll be transported back in time, within a retro-tiled shophouse space that probably hasn’t changed in their three-decade history.

Tacos, Tamales & More!

We continue our special focus on the Gold 905 family by getting Mike Kasem to share with us one of his favourite places to eat at in Singapore! Being from Los Angeles (in his words, “We’re practically Mexico!”), Mexican food was always a staple and you really do get some of the most delicious Mexican food in LA. After moving here, he’s always on the look out for that authentic taste and he’s just about found it at this little gem of a store.

Kicking things off is the man who drives you home daily, Chris Ho of the Homestretch (5-8pm). Looking for a new place to try superb Thai food at?

Famous, Fantastic Fishballs & More!

HEAR:
Click here for audio of this week’s episode!

SEE:   This week brings a famous fishball joint that really needs no introduction, but is always worth a mention. Our Makan Kaki Chef Daniel Tay reminds us again how delicious Song Kee’s fishball noodles are. It is an institution that plied its trade in Upper Serangoon till it shut unexpectedly, much to loyal customers’ disappointment. Thankfully, they re-opened in the Joo Chiat area last year to much fanfare. For good reason too. Their fishball and fish dumpling (herh keow) noodles are still as good as ever – it’s the perfect balance between great seasoning sauces (especially the chilli), noodle texture and fishy ingredients.

Johor Bahru Found in Geylang!

SEE:

Greetings Greedies, get your guts ready for a veritable Cze Char FEAST at a Geylang institution that is far from unfamiliar. In fact, we’ve covered it before here on the Makan Kakis blog. However it’s SOOO GOOOD that its virtues bear repeating, so here goes…

Michelin Bib Gourmand-mentioned JB Ah Meng is a long-time favourite of chefs not just because it’s conveniently open late (perfect for after-service suppers), but also the food is legitly tasty. Our Makan Kaki Petrina Loh of Morsels, like so many other chefs (including our other foodie friends KF Seetoh, Rishi Naleendra & Chef Daniel Tay), makes a beeline for JB Ah Meng whenever she can with colleagues and friends when she’s in need of her JB Cze Char fix.
