The Pasta Stop Ci Yuan Hawker

The Pasta Stop in Ci Yuan Hawker Centre

Ci Yuan Hawker Centre

I believe most of us have read that the government had pledged to build twenty new hawker centres in Singapore. Ci Yuan Hawker Centre, a 24hr hawker centre located in Hougang Avenue 9 is the first out of the twenty and it opened in August 2015.

Lao Beng finally had the chance to visit this hawker centre which is co-located in Ci Yuan Community Club one early evening. Read More

Char Grill Bar Grilled Chicken

Char-Grill Bar in Hougang Street 21

Char-Grill Bar Stall

The Char-Grill Bar signboard/logo always looks so familiar and that is because you had probably seen one in your neighbourhood as it has 20+ outlets in Singapore.

Well, Lao Beng chanced upon this particular outlet in a coffee shop located in Hougang Street 21 one evening. Seeing so many people browsing the gigantic menu made me decide to give it a try.

McDonalds Create Your Taste Burger

McDonald’s Create Your Taste, Build Your Own Burger

McDonald's Order Kiosk

Lao Beng had been reading/seeing/hearing for sometime on Social Media, Radio and TV about McDonald’s new dining experience that allows you to build your own burger.

However, every time I went into a McDonald’s I always did not see this option available. I always thought to myself that it might be only available at some upmarket areas/neighbourhood of our small little country, Singapore.

Lao Beng eats hawker food most of the time but there will be occasions when he will also try out food in cafes and restaurants. This is especially so if he does not need to fork out a single cent. Yes, Lao Beng is a cheapskate.

My friend decided to treat me to lunch for returning a favour that I had helped in previously.

Holy Grill Authentic Western Cuisine in Old Airport Road Food Centre

holy grill western food stall

Apart from local hawker food, all of us like to have western food every now and then. What deters us is usually the high cost of eating western food, this is especially so if we eat in restaurants or cafes.

Thus it is a godsend that we have western food stalls in coffee shops and hawker centres in Singapore. Lao Beng was at Old Airport Road Food Centre on a late afternoon to check out the Western Food from a stall named Holy Grill. Read More
