Bear Naked Food Imitation shark fin soup

Imitation Shark Fin Soup 碗仔翅

February 1, 2017
Since saying no to shark finning years ago, we have been carefully avoiding shark fin soup at wedding banquets and celebratory occasions. Consuming shark fin is cruel and unnecessary.

Fall-apart Beef Stew with Carrots and Potatoes

January 13, 2017
Mention beef stew and immediately, a comforting image of soft chunks of meat with vegetables sitting in a bowl of rich, deeply flavored brown sauce comes to mind. Contrary to popular belief, using cheap lean cuts of meat is not necessary ideal for making beef stews. When there is not enough fat marbling in the meat, they’ll just turn dry.. [read more]

Food Review: Kanda Wadatsumi – Sublime Omakase Experience at Tras Street

December 15, 2016
I can’t believe it took me so long to discover this hidden gem in Singapore. I’ve been to quite a fair share of restaurants at Tras Street (Singapore) but Kanda Wadatsumi had totally gone off my radar, until now.
