Ka Soh / Swee Kee Fish Head Noodle House - Menu

Har cheong gai on top, fish soup at the bottom, small tub of pork lard in the middle on the left
Yesterday afternoon I was in the Telok Ayer area near Swee Kee Fish Head Noodle House. I had not had their fish noodle soup for at least six months and hoped to dapau something back for dinner. Unfortunately they do not serve customers in between lunchtime and dinnertime. A friend, tempted by my talk of hot crispy har cheong gai, went down that evening and sent me pictures of his san lor hor fun, har cheong gai and two pyramids of fried pork lard.

The Salad Shop at UOB Plaza 2

A third shop selling salad in the Raffles Place area is The Salad Shop at UOB Plaza 2. Its location is not very obvious, as it is at the back of the building facing the river. But all you have to do is to take the road in-between Standard Chartered building and UOB Plaza 2, towards the river, then turn left, and you're there.

SaladStop! at Chevron House

Image from http://www.saladstop.com.sg

Lots of salad bars have sprung up around Raffles Place, and the demand has definitely warranted the truckloads of fresh vegetables being delivered here everyday. SaladStop! is a player that has (I think) the most outlets around Singapore, and there are two just in the Raffles Place area. It is currently my favourite, just for offering the most bang for your buck.

I know, I know, I have not been posting anything in a long while, and I have got a valid excuse to tender: working late nights. Anyhow, when I was labouring in the office on those nights, ending up da pao-ing meals (doing takeaways), I also took shots of what I ate :)

Bugis St Chuen Chuen Chicken Rice, Longhouse Food Centre


On the third day of Chinese New Year after an afternoon of driving around visiting relatives, we were feeling slightly carsick and ill from the heat. As Longhouse Food Centre was on our way home, we stopped by to pick up some dinner. Having had rich dishes on the previous days like pen cai, and lots of Chinese New Year cookies, we just wanted something hot, and plain and simple.
