wife wanted to try the cheap havelock turtle soup at havelock food centre. unfortunately it was closed.

we passed by bukit merah view to see if ye shanghai teochew porridge  夜上海潮州靡 was open (i was here recenty on 16.7.2015). it was, so i parked & joined the short queue (4pax in front) at 1130am on 8.8.2015.

by the time i sat down, the queue had grown to >15pax and remained so. the turnover though was quick enough.

teochew fishcake

i ordered 7 dishes. it came to S$11.40 including the 2 porridge. 🙂

the teochew fishcake here was nice, much better than the shi le yuan version.

taupok & taukee

taupok & taukee

wife did not like the taupok & taukee. they were not the very soft well infused with the lor flavours, but overall still ok for me.

salted fish minced pork 咸鱼饼

salted fish minced pork 咸鱼饼

the salted fish minced pork 咸鱼饼 was good as ever, salted fish very flavourful, maybe shi le yuan’s version was better. our own salted fish minced pork 咸鱼饼 would be better than this.

eggplants

eggplants

eggplants was the best! ^^

not sure how they do this. maybe will give it a try at home. 🙂

chilli ray

chilli ray

chilli ray was good, one of the dishes i like more. fish was great, so was the sauce. 🙂

chai buay

chai buay

chai buay the usual good standards one, just mildly sweet not sour.

cauliflower greens

cauliflower etc greens

the cauliflowers etc were freshly cooked, nice & crunchy, nothing special i guess. only the price is special.haha!

very nice simple lunch.

had a great family dinner with son (back for summer holidays) at aburiya on 7.8.2015. ^^ from my 3 previous posts, looks like i come here every 6 months, the last one in mar2015. could be more frequent than that & i did not post, but that’s the value of the posts for me, helping me to savour moments of joy. 🙂

yakiniku smokeless grill

aburiya has a good ventilation system & smokeless grill. i talked about this last time when c/w azmaya omakaseya which was poor in ventilation.

kurobuta

kurobuta S$16.90

we had the kurobuta.

kurobuta S$14.90

kurobuta S$14.90

this time we did not take the kurobuta belly. the meat looked marbled. texture was great but more like a loin than the flavourful fatty meat.

karubi S$10.90

karubi S$10.90

we take the cheaper beef, the karubi or short ribs.

karubi negi S$11.90

karubi negi S$11.90

& we orderd karubi negi which came with a seasoned/pickled negi or leek for S$1 more. love the leeks.

jo karubi S$16.90

jo karubi S$16.90

we also had jo karubi, the prime short ribs.

the meats were ok, not really special & my own homecooked steak dishes like tagliata di manzo are a lot better basically because i use very much better cuts like grain-fed black angus ribeye or striploin & sometimes aussie or even japanese wagyu. still it was very tasty & nice done this way even for cheap meats & we sometimes do teppanyaki ourselves at home, which is just as wonderful. ^^

kimchi chigae 킴치찌개

& i just love the kimchi chigae 킴치찌개 here. not even the kimchi nabe hotpot at shirokiya can compare with this in terms of flavours. maybe i will think of some ways to do this at home.

bibimen

bibimen

and we also love the bibimen here.

really like the noodles & the pork & cucumber condiments mixed in the ubiquitous gochujang sauce고추장. such a wonderful comfort food. maybe can try this at home too, not sure. the dinner sans the sake was about S$30nett pax, pretty ok. 🙂
