    Something different, something meh

    You know, I’m okay eating the same old food every day. But that doesn’t mean I ain’t thrilled when I find something new to add to my eat-out options. Unbelievable how a box of lemongrass meehoon (rice…

  • Twas a bolt of lightning

    Never too slow for fast food

    Figuring out what to eat come lunch time is often a headache for a picky eater like me. One afternoon (and this happened before I went vegetarian), I had an elderly relative with me and that really…

  • What's moi having for lunch?

    What’s moi having for lunch?

    You must’ve heard by now. I turned herbivore. That’s right. It’s nice to take a break from meat. Imagine no heavy meaty stuff to weigh you down, only light breezy vegetation that makes you feel like a…

  • Beefing about Mrs Daggers

    Hoping to beef up our rather sad Picky Eater Approved Restaurant List, we went to a new (to us) Korean restaurant and ended up beefing about Mrs Daggers instead. We’ve visited this eatery once before. The place…

  • Salad and chopsticks

    Just another regular day. I’m out eating alone. Again. I’m a vet at this, vet as in veteran, not veterinarian lol and I kinda enjoy it. It’s quite liberating because I don’t have to talk to anyone,…

    Chasing dimsum

    The weekend took us on a long drive to a suburb far away. It’s not something I’m too crazy about, chasing food to the ends of the earth but sadly, we can’t find anything better in the…

    Finally, roast pork with dry wantan noodles

    I’ve been hankering after that siu yoke (crispy skin roasted pork) ever since our dinner at that obscure restaurant in the swanky part of town whose siu yoke was all sold out for the day. Now one…
