Food and Gadgets

When I first started this blog last March 2008, I just wanted to have a place where I can share my thoughts and opinions...

Now, I believe my blog is a mess and its time for me to create a separate blog for gadgets and food...

http://ice15toys.wordpress.com/ - for gadgets
http://ice15food.wordpress.com/ - for food

Both sites are still empty and I'm hoping to add content in the next few months...

Filipino Food in Lau Pa Sat, Singapore: Cantunan atbp.

*I have just received information that Cantunan atbp. is now closed*

 

Here’s a new stall that brings a smile to my face… Catunan atbp. At Lau Pa Sat!

Yes, this is a new food stall in addition to Tapa King, Panyeros, Mang Kiko’s and Happy-V.

The reason Cantunan brings a smile to me is that I remember my college days when we used to eat in cheap stalls along the street which we easily called Hotdugan and Cantunan! Obviously, one sells Foot long hotdogs and the other sells Lucky-Me Pancit Canton.

What makes Cantunan special is that I don’t think there are other Filipino stalls here in Singapore who sells Quek-quek, Puto Bumbong, Bibingka and Binalot.

Although I didn’t get the chance to try much on my visit, it’s a big plus for me that they are open for lunch on a weekend and that service as also good.

Here’s a quick shot of their menu’s which I took.

To wrap up:

Food that is readily prepared is available: No

Food is prepared as you order, although the wait is not that long.

Day Visited for the first time: Saturday

Time/Meal: Lunch

Good for Corporate Lunch/Dinners: Maybe

Its still Lau Pa Sat, so basically, you can bring almost anyone.

Good to eat with Foreign Friends: Yes

Recommended for people who will try Philippine Cuisine for the first time: Yes

Filipino Food in Harbourfront Center: Rapsa

Now here’s something that’s a big surprise to all of us…
A stall in Food Junction which serves Philippine Cuisine… Rapsa!
Food Junction in Harbourfront Center can be found on the Third Floor.
Location is great since Food Junction always has ample space, proper ventilation and reasonable prices.
If it’s your first time to eat Filipino Food, this might be the perfect place for you.
Prices are not as expensive as Bonifacio and 7,107 Flavours.
Crowds and ambiance are not like those restaurants found in Lucky Plaza (Jologs) and Tanjong Pagar (Kamayan)
And it’s not as busy as the stalls in Lau Pa Sat (Happy V, Panyeros, Mang Kiko’s and Tapa King)
As per my guidelines:
Food that is readily prepared is available: Yes (although some of the items in the menu are prepared upon ordering)
Day Visited (the stall is inside Food Junction, cleanliness is good and its self service)
Good for Corporate Lunch/Dinners: No (it’s a food court…)
Good to eat with Foreign Friends: Yes
Recommended for people who will try Philippine Cuisine for the first time: Yes
If visiting Rapsa for the first time, their Grilled Pork Belly is a must try, they also have Roasted Pork Skewers and Roasted Chicken.
Rapsa’s menu changes almost everyday but their grilled items (Pork, Chicken and Squid) are available all the time.
Service speed needs to be upped a notch since lunch time queue is really bad. But looking at the entire picture, its good food, good price in a good place…

Tapa King Singapore

Update: Sadly, this place is no longer open for business. (CLOSED)

Tapa King is now in Singapore.

Presently located in Lau Pa Sat, it will definitely satisfy your cravings for their Tapa King, Queen (sweet and spicy Tapa) and Prince (sweet Tapa).

They also have Spicy Tuyo (dried fish).

More commonly known as Tapsilog, Tapa has been a popular item in Philippine restaurants since its easy to prepare.

Lucky Plaza

Lucky Plaza is the only place in Singapore where Filipinos can buy specific Philippine products. Ever wonder where you can buy an instant (Lucky Me) pancit canton? Bottled sardines? And even Philippine Soy Sauce and Vinegar. You can all find them in Lucky Plaza.

Shops in Lucky Plaza also offer remittance services to the Philippines, they have better rates and cheaper remittance fees.

There are also Restaurants serving Filipino Food inside Lucky Plaza, the more popular ones are Kabayan and GP Asia.

Lucky Plaza is also a home to shops selling electronic devices, although I will not recommend you to buy gadgets here, there are times when shops do offer good prices/deals.

One of the more reputable camera shops is Lord’s.

This mall’s atmosphere is very different from its neighboring malls in Orchard Rd. but if you’re a Filipino in Singapore, you must try visiting Lucky Plaza at least once.
