god-sis went to get the food. i had the chicken rendang. it came with sayur lodeh & egg, for S$5.

it was a very good meal!

rendang was very good & reasonable helping size. both the egg & sayur also good. $5 is not cheaper nor more expensive than say a economic rice at coffeeshop. important thing is that it was tasty, a very nice wholesome & balanced meal for S$5. 🙂

i think the price of the curry chicken was also S$5, and likely the nasi lemak too.

there was laksa, but from the wall photo it didn’t appear to come with cockles.

i will try some of these dishes next time. i would say for S$5 it was as good as my favourite adam road nasi lemak (adam’s nasi lemak & selara rasa nasi lemak) kind of meal! ^^

Cook Vegetarian – Thai Red Curry Vegetables

the thai red curry vegetables was a variation of my thai red curry sotong (squid).

i served that (red curry sotong) for the 30+pax lunch party for my daughter last month.

i just replaced the sotong by vegetables. i had potato, egg plant, onions, yellow pepper, tomato.

“dancing chef” thai red curry

when i was looking for the right curries to make my thai yellow curry grilled chicken thighs & bought the “dancing chef yellow curry”, i also bought the thai red curry. 

for the curry, i fried 1 sliced yellow onions with 2tbsp red curry powder & 100ml coconut milk. when the onions softened. i added a cut yellow pepper (i did not have red pepper). since it was a vegetarian dish, i added about 300ml of vegetable stock instead of chicken stock. i added cut eggplants & then cherry tomatoes last.

this is a really nice lemak, tasty dish, & spicy too, spicier than the yellow curry.

i served it at a recent 10-course vegetarian dinner for 8pax for my niece’s birthday. everyone liked it.

for me, a non vegetarian, it was no comparison with the red curry sotong of course but still an excellenty flavoured curry dish which i enjoyed thoroughly. ^^
