8 Durian– Fresh durian delivered to your doorstep de-husked

[Media Collaboration]

I have always been a bit apprehensive about purchasing durians. During my younger days, my father would be the one to procure the durians. It was a pity he did not take me along, but I guess he would simply purchase from his favourite durian shops or sources in Geylang. I have never purchased durians myself and would be totally clueless as to the correct price to pay so as not to be ripped off. Not to mention that good durian stalls are usually not conveniently located.

Lately, I was asked to try out 8 Durian, and online purveyor of the King of Fruits. They have their own durian plantation in Pahang, where fresh shipments of durians will be delivered to Singapore twice a day. In a way, I was relieved not to have to face any rough and tough durian seller. Just click click click online to choose my durians. It may not be the cheapest around, but I like the fact that I don’t have to haggle.

8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant – Fresh wild crabs for delivery!

[Media Collaboration]

During the Circuit Breaker period, I was invited to check out 8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant. Crab restaurants are aplenty in Singapore but I found out that 8 Crabs Seafood Restaurant is the only company in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan sourced wild crabs. The crabs are supposedly meatier, tastier, bigger and less watery as compared to farmed crabs. To ensure freshness, these crabs are caught, air-flown, prepared and delivered to to each customer within 12 hours. Read more about why wild caught crabs are better here.

I went to check out their website and I noticed that the crabs comes in various sizes from from L, XL and XXL. I was torn between getting L or XL which is $20 more because those who eat crabs often will know that a large part of the crab comprises of shell. And if you get too small a crab, some of the flesh may be inaccessible or stuck.

Nasi Lemak at Jalan Benaan Kapal Food Centre–Super old school, super delicious

Good things must share. A couple of months ago, a relative of hours recommended us this coffee stall that sells 50 cents coffee. Being intrigued, we visited the location at Jalan Benaan Kapal. The food centre or should I call it a coffeeshop turned out to be one of the most old-school ones I have seen in recent times.

Jalan Benaan Kapal Food Centre (5)

It’s just a 1 storey building with about 10 stalls. You can park just in front of this place and parking is free! It’s just amazing and so nostalgic that this food centre with just a single row of stalls in still surviving, and hidden just a stone’s throw away from the posh Tanjong Rhu estate. In its hey days, this area used to house many shipyards even up until the 90s. To think I studied nearby for 4 years and never knew about this place, nor the other popular Jalan Batu Hawker Centre nearby.

Shepherd’s Pies’ shepherd’s pies

Shepherd's Pies (3)

Win some shepherd’s pies in this giveaway!

Recently, I was contacted by Shepherd’s Pies to try out their shepherd’s pies. I have never been a fan of shepherd’s pies or cottage pies so I was curious to see how their products would taste like and if this could be a viable business. The reason why I’ve never been a fan of such pies is probably because I’ve never had a noteworthy version before in Singapore. I usually encounter them at buffets or perhaps at cafes where they look like they have been languishing in the freezer, only to see the light of day when someone orders them. And if I did order them due to a lack of a better choice, it just felt as if I was eating a lump of mashed potato placed on top of minced meat. Just never appealed to me.

That was before I tried Shepherd’s Pies’ shepherd’s pies. Scroll down to find out more and to stand a chance to win some shepherd pies!
