On Saturday, 23 June 2012, Mr Miyagi (miyagi.sg), Dr Leslie Tay (ieatishootipost.sg) and I embarked on a madcap adventure to eat our way through Singapore with the help of our social media friends. IN REAL TIME.
Our followers tweeted and Facebooked us, suggesting makan places for us to go to, for a full day. We were not just looking for great food, but food that had Singapore heritage, food that brought back Singapore memories. And boy, did we find A LOT of food.

You can also catch the highlights of our food trail in the video above. That is Part 1, I will post Part 2 of of this wonderful day out soon.
This has renewed my passion for looking at our food heritage. I still remember the wanton mee I had as a child, at Upper Aljunied Lane, at a coffee shop in Joo Seng. The cranky uncle was not the friendliest fellow but his old school wanton mee was awesome and I still crave that taste. And when I find it, it brings back memories of childhood.
Also fun was bringing my own egg to the prata man at another coffee shop near my old home. And buying chwee kuay directly from a hawker neighbour who lived one floor below us.
These are the tastes that memories are made of. May we not lose them all.
