林氏鱼丸 – Gulangyu, Xiamen, China


Just up ahead of 沈家闽南肠粉 in my previous post, you’ll find this shop with long tradition for their fish and prawn balls. No much of a queue so I placed my order for the 丸子开会 for RMB20, which basically has 5pcs of the 黄金鱼丸 and 6pcs of the 秘制虾丸. My reviews as follows: Rating: 3.5/5. Taste: Taste is not bad. Balls are soft and not too salty. Soup has some dried shrimps and seaweed to enhance the taste but still bland. So maybe the soup is not meant for drinking? But I’ve tasted better. Hate to say this, the frozen ones from my supermarket … Continue reading 林氏鱼丸 – Gulangyu, Xiamen, China

Frankie’s Place – Shanghai, China


Most Singaporeans base in Shanghai would know this place. Apparently the oldest Singapore food restaurant in Shanghai. However the location is a little far from the city where most Singapore expats would stay. But, when the crave for authentic Singapore food sets in, taking a cab down to this place is justifiable! Check out the food below! Rating: 4.5/5. Taste: I must say it’s as good as what we eat in Singapore. Unlike some claim to be Singapore/Malaysian food but taste not authentic. Thumbs up for catering to the craves us Singaporeans/Malaysians have while working in Shanghai! Ambience: Pretty comfy … Continue reading Frankie’s Place – Shanghai, China

SO FREE WOOD FIRED PIZZA (柴烧比萨) – Taipei, Taiwan


Ok I know this has been dragging for some time and finally I’m getting to write about the food I tried when I was in Taipei. This So Free Wood Fired Pizza place came to me as a surprise actually. I was walking around Ximending looking around for a place to have something light, then this little restaurant caught my eye. Not because of the custom built big stone oven that is right at the counter in front of the shop, but also the crowd that is patronizing the restaurant at a weird timing of 3 to 4pm… So I … Continue reading SO FREE WOOD FIRED PIZZA (柴烧比萨) – Taipei, Taiwan
