Singapore Lah

When in Singapore, do hit up the restaurant called @candlenutsg .. It's young chef, Malcolm Lee (I mean, really - he looks like a baby!) does wonders for Peranakan cuisine --- not gussying it up, but just respecting it and trying to make it better (like this fun dish of Maggi noodles and a sauce of buah keluak - an Indonesian nut). It's beautiful food and it's DELICIOUS.

Along the streets of Singapore, we feast on Chinese style #NasiLemak -- humble food, made with precision by someone only with so much experience can pull off. The proud owner told us that she's been at it for 30 years - and it shows! Most definitely my kind of grub.. #ShiokYulo

  This is Chef Micah (top most) who cooks in this space and runs it with his dad. He's cooked in Paris and Barcelona...and now does tapas in a hawker centre. He does his paella in a rice cooker because of space limitations. But it's so good!  😍
