A couple of days ago, a friend of mine who owns a fantastic little restaurant nestled in Fort Canning Park called me to ask a favour. She needed some photos done of one of her chef’s signature dishes; a local high-society magazine wanted to run it. Always happy to help a friend and equally thrilled to shoot anything yummy, I trekked over to Poppi and met up with chef Chris Millar. The dish in question was his Wagyu Burger, made (obviously) with wagyu beef, and topped with foie gras and truffle. I shot the burger from a variety of angles, in natural light. The shot above is my favourite of the lot (My wife calls the angle “very Australian food magazine-ish”).

I should say that the food at Poppi is good. Chris is a wonderful guy who is always eager to please his customers. After shooting the burger, I was ravenous but I wanted to eat something a tad healthier than the burger. Chris whipped up a wonderful duck confit and pear salad for me. It was delicious.

I’ve been reading your blog for a short time now and I love it. I think you’re one of the first Singaporean men that I’ve found with a food blog. If you notice, most of the Singaporean food bloggers are women…why is that? I met up with a few of them this past February and was quite entertained.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Reid. Not sure why there are so few S’porean men blogging on food. There sure are many guys in the country blogging on just about everything else.

And thanks for reading.

Wow – great pic! It is a very "Bill's Sydney Food" kind of picture, which is precisely what I like. Wish I hadn't come across it while having lunch though – my ploughman's sandwich has just paled into insignificance!

i like your pic! i don't know much about australian food mags, but i know that it makes me want to eat it! and I'd say that's good enough by any standards! =)

Jeanne, we love Bill’s. I’m dreaming of the scrambled eggs as I type. We have his cookbooks too..yah, definately an inspiration.

Daffy, THANKS! If you are able to find some of the Aussie food mags though, you should grab them. I think that they have some of the best food photos around. And the style they are are leaning towards is definitely becoming more and more popular internationally. Look out for Donna Hay, Vogue Entertaining + Travel, and Gourmet Traveller.

wow! Wagyu+foie gras+truffle burger … i wonder how it tastes like?

However, I would prefer to have them (i.e Wagyi, foie gras, truffle) serve/eaten separately …

hmmm … how come never stack the fries nicely before photographing leh? 😛 hehehe …
