Hey! Jiak Simi?!

by Steven Yeo, APEX-MBA 2004




When “Makan” or “Have you eaten?” is the main greeting whenever we meet each other, that immediately tells you something about the importance of food to every one of us and in Singapore.

In our pursuit of authentic food, we are constantly surprised by the depth and diversity of both the local and international cuisines in Singapore or China (I am based in China currently).

HEY Jiak Simi!! In this article, I would like to request all the members in this interest group to share what you had eaten today or recently that is worth recommending. As for me, I have the privilege to explore Shanghai Korea Town without the need to fly to Seoul on a makan spree.
