Gold 90FM DJ Denise Tan loves it both ways - east and west, that is.
Fried Mee Sua from Yong Huat.
East: Fried mee sua (S$4) from Yong Huat (Ali BaBa Eating House, 125 East Coast Road, corner of Joo Chiat Road and East Coast Road)
"The best fried mee sua! The crispy chunk of lard is the not-so-secret ingredient. Also, the sambal ups the flavour and the wok hei really comes through."
Curry Favour Fries from Best Fries Forever.
West: Curry Favour Fries ($4.70 for a large) from Best Fries Forever (Orchard Cineleisure basement)
"Reminds me of that English Uni student staple, chips with curry sauce!"
Salted Vegetable Duck Soup from Loola's.
East Meets West: Salted Vegetable Duck Soup (S$9) from Loola's (#02-14 Esplanade, Theatres On The Bay; Tel: 6336 9563)
"Yes, kiam chye ark ... with a generous slice of salted veg, tongue-numbing roasted chilli peppers, tartly sweet cherry tomatoes and a fried 'croquette' of duck confit rillettes. The combination of flavours is incredible!"
Host of Gold 90FM's Lunchtime Jukebox, weekdays from 10am to 2pm, Denise's musing of a hungry hostess can be found at http://blogs.mediacorpradio.sg/deniset.
