In Singapore, there are tze char 煮炒 (meaning stir and fry) stalls and there are cai peng 菜飯 (meaning dishes and rice) stalls. Some tze char places serve cai peng quality dishes while some cai peng places serve tze char quality food. You need to be very local or have lived on this sunny island for awhile to know what I am talking about. Of course, there is Le Chasseur (recently made famous by a very famous food blog) that dishes out almost restaurant quality food although it is classified by the food blogger as a tze char place. Le Chasser is crowded, all thanks to the very famous food blogger. If you cannot get a place during lunchtime, perhaps you can consider hopping over to Boat Quay.

For a short while, I refused to call Daniel Boulud's new bistro at MBS by its name. We went to try the burgers once and they were not blog worthy. So I refer it as that casual chic burger place at MBS. I like the bustling feel of the bistro much more than its signature burger. By sheer fate or luck, Mozza was not open so we went to db again. This time round I smarter. I asked for recommendations. And the good people at db gave great recommendations.

One food blog I am addicted to is Accidental Epicurean. I like how Joanna and Paul explored the region closest to my heart. They made me want to go to the places they went. Being a good girl, I memorised their instructions before my trip and followed it to a tee. With Nana skytrain station at our backs, we walked down Sukhumvit Soi 11 as if we are going to Bed Supperclub till we saw this sign.

Happy CNY! You should know by now that my posts are mostly long overdued and foodcentric. Very seldom do I talk about my day. Well, I have some spare time before reunion dinner and so let me tell you what I did just now.

Greyhound Cafe of Bangkok is probably the closest parallel to PS Cafe of Singapore. Both are successful casual eateries managed by local fashion houses. Both have modern and industrial-like feel. Both are popular chill-out places. The only divergence is Greyhound sells cheaper food while PS sells cheaper clothes.
Lychee and Strawberry Freezes, 90baht each
Our drinks came shortly after we ordered. Refreshing and not too sweet. Guess nothing can go wrong with lychees and strawberries. They were good.
