we ordered the sotong, both types of prawn crackers.

for me the smaller prawns crispier cracker was better. the larger prawn cracker a bit chewy but i guess that was the intended texture.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

the tauyou bak 鲁腩肉 was very tender & tasty. one lady told me “吃了还想再吃-after eating she want to eat some more”. ^^

important thing is the braising sauce must be fragrant, flavourful.

the dark soy sauce is fragrant & help to caramelise. & the zhengjiang vinegar镇江香醋 too.

& reducing the braising sauce makes it a nice, slightly sticky, tasty belly pork dish.

6hrs oven sounds tedious, but actually very easy. just add braising sauce & leave in oven.

when cooled, put in fridge. easy to cut next morning.
