    Makan in Thailand

    I know this is a Singapore forum but as I live in Thailand I am wondering if it is appropriate to post about food in Thailand here. It could be Thai food, international food, my home cooking food in Thailand etc. I wish to also welcome anyone here to contribute your experience of Thai food in Singapore or anywhere. If anyone think its not appropriate do let me know. For a start here's one of my favourite Thai food khanom-jeen, had this last week near my office Khanom-Jeen is the white soft rice noodle in Thailand made from fermented rice so it has to be eaten fresh after its made if not will turn sour quickly and spoil. Khanom-jeen is usually take with Thai curry and most commonly with Thai green curry known as gaeng-keow-wan literally translated word by word curry-green-sweet or for our easy understanding sweet green curry, and in this case for chicken green curry we call it gaeng-keow-wan-gai, gai as in chicken. This is rural area so the simple and rural setup https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOhpd-7LR2g&t=3s Besides making khanon-jeen-gaeng-keow-wan in very traditional taste the seller is also very sweet and cute so my favourite stall I can down 2 of her khanom-jeen any time Each is only 40 baht
  2. So you have a few days free.. europe is too far, too expensive and well too much to organize now you check out Scoot and then you scope out $50 tickets to Penang and you have the perfect excuse for a getaway 👍 its only 55 min away and you can be in the land of good food for not too much money 💰 so come join me for a weekend jaunt ! firstly where do you stay ? well despite it being officially frowned upon, you can get Airbnb or other options for a short stay or just stay in the hotel. You can stay in Georgetown where the food is or the Tanjung Bungah area with the fabulous sea view. Or Batu Ferringhi and eat durians until your eyeballs fall out. Take your pick !

    General travel - Taiwan

    Breakfast was not bad, had chunky red snapper porridge for main course but started with some fruits and a fritter So my trip will be starting from the south of Taiwan in the city of Kaohsiung then will move to Taipei Friday evening. So, when I arrive at Taoyuan Airport (near to Taipei) I have to take their High Speed Rail (HSR) to the Kaohsiung in the south. But before that I need to get to the Taoyuan HSR Station, by bus Follow the sign to go to the bus station at B1 level, just outside the glass door go to number 12 kiosk for bus number 705 and pay just $30 Inside the bus Train ticket $1,980 (non-reserve seat cost $1290, standard reserve seat costs $1330) from Taoyuan station to Zuoying Station (this is the name of the HSR station for Kaohsiung) Here comes the train https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vKVaVpHMl0 Inside the train
  5. A whole new Japanese food street replacing the old Japanese food street at Jurong Point Basement 1, the link between JP1 and JP2. Its like a Japanese food coffee shop, buy food, eat and go. Price is close to a normal Japanese mass market restaurant, but GST included and no service charge. The whole place is almost cashless. You can just get a seat, scan the QR quote on the table, run through menus, place order, make cashless payment, get Q number, wait for Q to appear on the E-board, Collect eat and go. If you prefer to pay cash or Q for your order, there is a kiosk at every stall, select your order, pay cashless or go to the drink stall to make your cash payment at the cash counter, and wait for your food. However, for drinks, the stall only accept cash and nets (if I see correctly, no CC payment at the drink stall, or i might be wrong because some new handheld takes both Nets and CC payment). 1 issue tho, if you are ordering food from different stalls, you will have to repeat the process and get a few Q numbers. Here is the website link for those who are interested. http://njoydininghall.com.sg/about-us/ I dont usually take photos of my food when I dine out, so no photos of food, but here are some photos of the place and the stalls. If you like Japanese cakes and Ice cream, head over to chateraise at the start of the row (where the &JOY signboard is) , but you may need to exercise self control. I had to quickly rush out before I start to pick non stop, if not I think I toh of sugar overload..
  6. I think the best fried chicken in Singapore for me is at Wisma lvl 5 beside the food court. It’s a Japanese karaage shop, at japan town. I am worried they close down because dunno why not much business leh. Weird...

  11. Food delivery firms take up third-party liability insurance Pedestrians now better placed to claim for damages should they get into accident involving riders Pedestrians are now better placed to claim for damages should they get into an accident involving riders from food delivery services in Singapore. Deliveroo and Grab have already taken up third-party liability insurance for their riders, while a third company, Foodpanda, is looking into purchasing the insurance. Early this week, Active Mobility Advisory Panel chairman Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim said his panel is considering recommending that such insurance be made mandatory for food delivery firms. In a Facebook post on Monday, Dr Faishal said: "We are considering third-party liability insurance, to give more peace of mind to pedestrians and riders if an accident occurs." He said more details on the potential recommendation would be announced later. Dr Faishal had said last month that his panel was concerned about reports of reckless food delivery riders who rush to make deliveries, and that it was actively looking into stronger measures to ensure that the riders are covered by third-party liability insurance. Mr Steven Lim, a member of the panel and president of the Safe Cycling Task Force, said on Wednesday that while no final decision has been made on the recommendations, food delivery companies are already encouraged to take up such insurance. He said: "The food delivery riders are the ones who actually spend a lot of time on the streets, they clock higher mileage, so the chances of them getting into an accident are actually higher than other users." Both Grab and Deliveroo told The Straits Times that they had already purchased third-party liability insurance for their riders. Deliveroo said all 6,000 of its riders have been covered by insurance for free since May last year. "Accident insurance is applicable to riders on all vehicle types and their substitutes, while all cyclists and e-scooter riders also have access to third-party liability insurance," it said. Riders are covered by insurance at a value of up to US$1.5 million (S$2.03 million) in the event that they cause injury to another person while making a delivery. The insurance would also protect the rider in cases of property damage and cover any legal costs incurred. Grab, which runs GrabFood, said its riders have been covered by third-party insurance since June 14. It said the coverage aims to provide peace of mind to both pedestrians and delivery riders. It did not disclose the total number of riders insured or the monetary value of the coverage. Foodpanda's public relations team did not respond to ST's requests for comment, but ST understands that the company is also looking into buying third-party liability insurance for its riders. Ms Lee Bee Wah, MP for Nee Soon GRC, previously suggested that third-party liability insurance be made mandatory for personal mobility device users. She told ST that the developments are a good step forward. "Having mandatory insurance for (riders) could help many pedestrians feel they have at least some recourse," she said. "More importantly, food delivery companies should hold their riders accountable for any accidents, using their tracking technology if needed." https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/food-delivery-firms-take-up-third-party-liability-insurance covers pedestrians only, no mention of cars ....

  14. Geylang Serai Bazaar: Most stalls to sell traditional Malay goods, food required to meet halal criteria. Good news!! Im chinese but i enjoy going to geylang serai bazaar for the festivity during ramadan. i dunno since when the bazaar seems to have lost itself with trying to stay relevant and attract the young crowd --- Reads 'earn money, rake up rentals'. Past few years at least hipster food and drink were everywhere. im too glad that finally the organisers are doing something bout it thou rental capped at 14k by no means is low. Starting this thread for the bazaar food updates in May.

    Roast goose

    Anywhere selling? Is it extinct in Spore?
  20. Just venting cos I found the situation so frustrating. Currently in a crowded food court. Managed to get a seat for myself and my daughter after a long while looking for empty seats. I saw a family of 4 at a set of 3 small tables joined together. Each small table can seat 2. Went ahead and asked the father if tge space at the third table was taken....It was. ..by his son's bag. His reply. .."too cramped". I looked at hi and said "II am shifting the table." And proceeded to do so. How selfish people can be even when they don't need the space and don't care if people are looking or waiting for seats. : (

    Chinese New Year Lou Hei

    Chinese New Year is coming. Yu Sheng, or Cantonese as lou hei, is one of the main dishes that most people will get to eat during Chinese New Year. Yusheng, yee sang or yuu sahng (Chinese: 魚生; pinyin: yúshēng), or Prosperity Toss, also known as lo hei (Cantonese for 撈起 or 捞起) is a Cantonese-style raw fish salad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (sometimes salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Yusheng literally means "raw fish" but since "fish (魚)" is commonly conflated with its homophone "abundance (余)", Yúshēng (魚生) is interpreted as a homophone for Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor. While versions of it are thought to have existed in China, the contemporary version was created and popularised[citation needed] in the 1960s amongst the ethnic Chinese community and its consumption has been associated with Chinese New Year festivities in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. Today, the common form of yusheng is the qicai yusheng (七彩鱼生; “seven-coloured raw fish salad”) served in local restaurants during the Chinese New Year period. Also referred to as facai yusheng (发财鱼生; “prosperity raw fish salad”) or xinnian yusheng (新年鱼生; “Chinese New Year raw fish salad”), this colourful take on yusheng was said to be created in the 1960s by chefs Lau Yoke Pui, Tham Yui Kai, Sin Leong and Hooi Kok Wai, together known as the “Four Heavenly Kings” in the Singapore restaurant scene. The recipe included ingredients such as shredded white and green radish and carrots, ginger slices, onion slices, crushed peanuts, pomelo, pepper, essence of chicken, oil, salt, vinegar, sugar and more. To enhance the taste, the chefs began the practice of pre-mixing the sauce in order to ensure a balanced taste for each dish as compared to the past when diners mixed the sauce themselves. This new way of eating yusheng was not readily accepted until the 1970s when younger diners embraced it. From then on, the popularity of this yusheng recipe soared and spread overseas. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yusheng So, any good recommendations for good yu sheng this year? And how often do you eat yu sheng during the 2 weeks of Chinese New Year celebrations?
  22. During Chinese New Year, we will definitely buy some Chinese New Year goodies, aka snacks, junk food, etc, to serve our relatives and friends when they come to your house for visits during this period, or for won consumption. Some families will buy a lot of these goodies because of sales and some will buy very less, as to not to waste food and money. The common food that people will buy for Chinese New Year are snacks like pineapple tarts, kuek lapis, egg rolls/love letters, Bak kua, packet/canned drinks and other food like canned abalones, dried mushrooms and fish maws, sao la, etc. For those who buy a lot, they will take months to finish, even months after the 2 week Chinese New Year celebrations. For those who buy too little, the food is almost finished even before the first day of Chinese New Year celebration starts. How long do you take to finish your Chinese New Year goodies and food?
  23. Fast food meals have fewer calories than restaurant dishes, BMJ finds Fast food meals are less calorific than many restaurant dishes, research published in the BMJ has found. The study found that meals served by popular high street eateries - including Harvester and Hungry Horse - contain more than twice the amount of recommended calories. Health officials say that a main meal should contain no more than 600 calories. But the study found that the average dish served in a chain restaurant contains 1033 calories. The figure far exceeds the average 751 calorie countent found in meals served by fast-food joints including MacDonalds, Wimpy and Burger King. The biggest offenders were the Hungry Horse and Stone House restaurant chains, which which clocked up 1,358 and 1,275calories in an average main meal respectively. Other well-known restaurant chains with high calorie content included Harvester, at 1,166 calories, JD Wetherspoon, with 1119 calories, and Nandos, on 1,019 calories. Advice issued by Public Health England in March said people should be aiming to consume 600 calories for lunch and dinner. Author Dr Eric Robinson, a behavioural psychologist at Liverpool University, said the findings were "shocking". But he warned that they under-estimate the true picture, since drinks, starters, desserts and side orders were excluded from the study. He said: "Only one-in-ten of the meals we surveyed could be considered a healthy number of calories. "Although some of the results are shocking our findings probably underestimate the number of calories consumed in restaurants because our analysis did not include drinks, starters, desserts or side orders." He said: "It's really clear what the food industry need to do - they need to act more responsibly and reduce the number of calories that they're serving." Britain’s restaurant habits are fuelling its obesity crisis he said, with four in ten adults eat out at least once a week. Dr Robinson said the poor nutritional content of 'fast food' is well known but full service restaurants where dining tables are provided have received less attention. The study analysed the calories in 13,500 main meals from 21 full-service and six fast-food chains. Among fast food chains, meals at Burger King had an average of 711 calories, followed by Wimpy, at 721 calories, and McDonald’s at 726 calories. The highest meal in a restaurant classed as “fast-food” was at KFC, with an average of 987 calories. Dr Robinson said: "On average, the energy content of main meals served by full service restaurants was 268 calories higher than that of main meals served by fast food restaurants.” Researchers said many public health experts had focussed concern on fast foods, but not paid enough attention to the stodgy and fatty fare sold in high street restaurants. The UK is the most overweight nation in Western Europe - with levels of obesity growing faster than in the US. Last year a study by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said Britain was the sixth-worst country in its 35 member states - coming behind Mexico, the USA, New Zealand, Finland and Australia. Two in three adults are overweight or obese. The Government is consulting on introducing mandatory calorie labels on restaurant menus, while health officials are working on plans to cut the calorie content of meals. https://www.msn.com/en-sg/health/fitness/fast-food-meals-have-fewer-calories-than-restaurant-dishes-bmj-finds/ar-BBQYCUr?ocid=spartanntp
