Daddy’s Guilty Pleasures

The way to your dad’s heart is through his tummy. Or so they say with most men…While some of us may be feeling experimental enough to whip up something in the kitchen, why not bring daddy dearest out for some of his hawker favourites from the good ol’ days? I’d venture to say that most dads have fond memories of lard-laden unhealthy food but won’t admit it for fear of being chided by mum or you. So do make the first move to let him know you’d like to indulge his food cravings. It could be a simple bowl of mee pok from the stall he grew up with, or sinful char kway teow piled high with batu ham (cockles). Here are some of my recommendations to jog your dad’s trip down memory lane…or perhaps introduce newer guilty pleasures for his diet:

  • Zion Road Fried Kway Teow [****]/ No. 17-18, Zion Riverside Food Centre, 86 Zion Road

  • Singapore Hokkien Mee / Whampoa Hawker Centre
  • Nam Sing Fried Hokkien Mee / Old Airport Road Food Centre, #01-32

Remember, these are just some ideas from my own forages in various hawker centres. If your dad’s tummy or memory serves otherwise, do indulge this once and have fun along the way. wishes all dads out there a HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY!
