Singapore Foodie – HamBaoBao | S3E6

Our search for a Singapore burger artist brought us to Chef Ryan of HamBaoBao, whose Ayam Buah Keluak burger was a megahit with foodies, with waiting times of up to 2 hours. We learn what goes into fusing Asian flavors in the classic American burger format, how important Hawker Culture is for Singaporeans and learn one of life’s great lessons.

Singapore Foodie – The Cheese Ark | S3E5

In this episode, we visit The Cheese Ark, the coolest boutique cheesemonger in town. Based at 49 Stirling Road, Ai Ming runs a shop stocked with hard-to-find cheeses from smallholding farms where every wheel is loving handcrafted, air-flown to Singapore and aged in her affinage room to perfection. 

Plus, we ponder if the hard-charging 24-/7 life is really the best when instead, you could get back to nature and chill, away from social media

Singapore Foodie – Ah Seng Durian | S3E2

We hang out with the King – the King of Fruits! The amazing durian, a fruit that has almost defied description by noted writers over the years, has a (subjectively) obscene smell combined with beautiful a custard-like flesh. We visit Ghim Moh market to hang with an innovator in the Durian scene and hear how Ah Seng innovated multiple times in his 3 decades of selling Durians

Thanks to Paul Foster for reading the quotes, and Benjamin “Mr Miyagi” Lee for the opening line about how durians smell!

Singapore Foodie – Fook Kin | S3E1

Our Singapore Foodie season kicks off with a look at the amazing caramelized char siew of Fook Kin, a collab of superstar DJs The Muttons (Vernon A & Justin Ang), Chef Kai of Roast Paradise and Fatboys Empresario Bernie Tay. The guys talk about the difference between Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur Char Siew, if it’s spelt Char Siew (SG & KL) or Char Siu (HK) and why social media and Instagram is critical for connecting with customers and foodies
