Using food, interviews and an original writing style as a starting point, I Ate Tiong Bahru lets the reader experience life in one of Southeast Asia's most cosmopolitan and historic areas.
Stephen Black's musings of Singapore's most famous neighborhood are at once whimsical, nostalgic and humorous. From stories about local delicacies to 'Soymilk Blues' (sung to Johnny Cash's famous song), I Ate Tiong Bahru is a must-read for gourmets, architects, historians and just about anyone who wishes to learn more about this evolving neighborhood.
5 star review on Amazon
Unlike anything else I've read... funny quirks balance the political undertone perfectly. The book involves history,humor, culture and most importantly, food (or rather, taste).

... reads like a travelogue, a personal story and a history book... a pleasure to read.
