This evening, I was in Chinatown with my wife and intended to go the the Chinatown Food Centre when we chanced upon the former North Chinese Cuisine Restaurant which had now move a few metres nearer to the main road from its own premises at Mosque Street.

We still remember the same Chinese cook who prepared the deep fried tomato sauce fish (I think it is called ba tin or songsu fish). I brought along my first DLSR camera,  a Canon 1100D (although I was not sure whether the Nikon 3100 would be better given the similar price range).  So, this is my first food blog and hopefully there would be others too.

We order the fried fish which cost only  S$15 and it taste as good as it looks.  The meat dumpling was equally delectable too. The original photos were some 3 Mbyte each but was reduced to a few hundred kilobytes since there was no need for a huge poster kind of photo for blog entries.  So it is not so clear as compared to the original size.

Below is the $6.20 herbal soup called “Buddha Jump Over the Wall” available at Chinatown Food Centre.  My wife loves to drink this tasty concoction each time we visit Chinatown.

Always good to have a few sip of sugarcane juice to lower cholesterol as they contains policosanol, a natural extract from sugar cane wax that works to breakdown cholesterol and help maintain healthy cholesterol levels.  I notice that many new housing estates do not sell fresh sugarcane anymore but littered with the bubble tea with all the food colouring and additives.  Maybe the health authorities should promote the sale of fresh sugarcane in new housing estates for the health of the younger families staying there.

Below is a evening landscape photo shot of Chinatown in auto mode without flash.  Looks quite nice.
