Introduction to Foodchiak.com


​​​​​Foodchiak is an inspirational name derived from the fusional blend between the English word, “Food” and the Hokkien dialect, “Chiak”, which literally translates to “Eat” in English, or is more commonly known as 吃” in Chinese! The significance behind this name revolves around the typical Singapore context of eating good food!​As I was born & bred in Singapore for the past 20 years, I have decided to start out this website that would mainly based around in Singapore, to document down my search for great food! Occasionally, I would also fulfil my other passion for travel, to visit the many different countries & cities for exotic food while also to learn more about their rich heritage and culture!

​​Like any other young adults out there, I have a passion for savouring great food of all cuisines & the desire for travel to explore things & broaden my horizon! I started to appreciate the great love for food when I was 15 years old & grew a great fond to start exploring in the constant search for the best of the best food during my college days at the age of 17!

Growing up in a family where we enjoy eating & the appreciation towards the great love for food especially for my father, I was indeed blessed to have found the same passion as well! Our passionate love for eating goes way out to the miles where we can travel from one end to the other end of Singapore to just satisfy our tummy!

“One of the most extreme road-trip we had, was to travel 250km North to Tampin, Malaysia from Singapore just for a legendary bowl of Wanton Mee!”​

The love for food!

Through the love for food, I have discovered numerous amazing lessons to learn from, such as how simple & delicate a dish could be, and it all depends on the amount of effort invested & the passion to make it better! For example, a simple dish such as a plate of chicken rice is so commonly available at almost any food-centre stalls but what does it differentiate between some stalls that stands out from the rest?

Most would agree that some stalls did better because they had their own secret recipe which is true to a certain extent, but behind each secret recipe that is being carefully crafted, lies the amount of passion & effort that has been invested to create the end product of a perfect dish. Indeed, maintaining the taste & standard of each dish would definitely be one of the most paramount concern & challenge that every chef faces!

Personally, for myself, I strongly believe that great delicious food does not necessary have to be expensive nor must it be served at a high end lavish restaurant! Throughout my past few years journey in the search for great food, I have come across equally delicious food that are being served at a local food stall & also at a fraction of the price!

Some food visit encounter also left me a bizarre experience when great food does not necessary equate to “Great Service”, but still does not lack in long line of customer awaiting to dine in.
