local grocery finds… Serangoon (near Marine Parade Town Council)

Check out this photo!

I was accompanying my wife while she was buying the regular stuff in a small grocery store in Serangoon and I noticed that this store sold Mang Tomas, UFC Banana Ketchup and Andok’s Litson Sauce!

Prices were also better compared to those shops you find in Lucky Plaza!

They also sell Datu Puti Vinegar (regular and spiced versions).

So just incase you’re in Serangoon, just drop by this store and using my photo as a guide, you’ll know which shelf to look at…

Store is near the old Serangoon bus terminal at the back of Marine Parade Town Council (Serangoon).

Filipino Food in Lucky Plaza: Jologs

Jologs by Café Calle Real is a Filipino restaurant in Lucky Plaza.

Jologs may be a negative word for some but in Singapore, they serve one of the best “SiLogs”!

SiLogs means a meal with “Si” Sinangag (garlic Fried Rice) and “Log” Itlog (Fried Egg).

The most popular “SiLog” has got to be Tapsilog which is Tapa (Marinated Beef) with Sinangag and Itlog!

Now to summarize my experience:

Food that is readily prepared is available: To hard to tell, but I think YES

You cannot see where they prepare the food, but once you find a seat, you don’t have to wait for too long before the food arrives.

Day Visited for the first time: Saturday

Time/Meal: Dinner

Day Visited for the second time: Wednesday

Time/Meal: Dinner

Good for Corporate Lunch/Dinners: No

Good to eat with Foreign Friends: Maybe for the adventurous

The thing is, Jologs is located in Lucky Plaza and their space is a bit cramped. If your foreign friends can deal with all these, then you may invite them to eat in Jologs.

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

If we will only talk about the food, definitely a must try!

Jolog’s is located at #04-03 Lucky Plaza Singapore 238863

Their contact number is (+65) 6887-5724 and their website is:

Filipino Food in Lau Pa Sat: Mack’s, Happy V (formerly Jolly V), Panyeros and Mang Kiko’s Lechon

Lau Pa Sat, almost everyone in Singapore knows about it, so going to the place is not that difficult. Of all the food stalls there, four (4) serves Filipino Cuisine.

Mack’s Chicken Inasal

*****Sad to say, Mack’s is now closed*****

Panyeros

Happy V Fried Chicken (formerly know as Jolly V)

And Mang Kiko’s Lechon

Although they all cater to the Filipinos working and visiting Singapore, the food on their menu does not compete with one another.

You will also often see foreigners ordering from them, especially at Happy V.

Since basically Lau Pa Sat is a food court, we can assume that the experience  for all three stalls is almost the same.

Food that is readily prepared is available: Yes

Day Visited for the first time: Friday

Time/Meal: Dinner

Day Visited for the second time: Sunday

Time/Meal: Dinner

Good for Corporate Lunch/Dinners: No

Not unless your department wants to have a corporate meal in a hawker center.

Good to eat with Foreign Friends: Yes

It’s Lau Pa Sat so basically, I’m sure majority of your friends have been there.

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

Mack’s Chicken Inasal – Yes, their menu is very Filipino although most of the time, they only can offer 3-4 dishes. You may plan to eat Tapsilog but on your visit, they only have Chicken Barbeque.

Mack’s is the only place in Singapore where you can ask them to prepare a “malasado” fried egg.

Panyeros – They do not have a regular menu. You can just pick which one’s you’ll like to try.

Happy V – Fried Chicken and Rice! The only difference is the gravy! They also have Pizza, Pasta and Burger Steak but these may or may not work with your guests since we all know that Filipino Pasta is sweet.

Mang Kiko’s Lechon – I will have to say Yes, it’s lechon! But come to think about it again, its only roasted pig.
