Two Men Bagel, Singapore…are there really any other contenders in Singapore?

A true bagel is a beautiful thing: a glossy, crackly outer crust and squishy insides.

Two men Bagel is completely no-frills and their bagels combine a perfectly chewy, compact crust with a fluffy, moist interior which can be topped with the sandwich fixings of your choice. Whether you go for a bacon, scrambled egg & cheese, cream cheese, cold cuts, or some combination of all those things, it’s guaranteed to be piled so high that you’ll barely be able to fit the sandwich in your mouth. For me the Whammer: bacon, scrambled, cheese, smoked aioli is the bagel of dreams.

The spot often draws a long line, but it’s worth the wait for one of those soft-on-the-inside, lacquered-on-the-outside rounds. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Hong Kong Street Family Restaurant, Singapore…sum lor hor fun with nice “wok hei”

Their signature dish is the Sum lor hor fun (fresh fish slices stir-fried with rice noodles). The delicious fish slices were very fresh and tasty and blended very well with the beansprouts and hor fun which was smooth with nice wok hei (cantonese for “wok aroma” : the charred taste of something stir fried) aroma. 

The other dish which was very good was a mix of two of my favourite things – coffee and barbeque ribs – into one.  The dark coffee sauce tastes bittersweet and fragrant and goes remarkably well with the meat.  The chunks of pork ribs are so very tender and the strong coffee aroma accompanied every bite I took.

This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
