D13 durians from sin kian choon tiong bahru

3 of us (OPS primary school buddies) decided to meet for durians.

one friend went to sin kian choon at tiong bahru to get the durians.

as the durians arrived about 1.30pm, we decided to meet at another friend’s place at 2pm on 6.12.2016.^^

we always like D13. MSW has come down to S$15/kg but we didn’t get this time.

D13 was sweet, fragrant. 2 of the fruits were tastier, one was plainer, bit 淡.

very enjoyable for us, of course not quite the best D13 we had previously. still, good enough la…

bkt spices

bakuteh spices

we were tired of going out, so decided to just cook bakuteh at the friend’s place & try out a new packet of bkt spices (the teochew bkt spice on the right).

my friend had the really good fresh monstrous indonesian 龙骨 long prime ribs (T-rex…lol!) from his usual wet market supplier.

i brought 2 packet of the teochew spices (instruction says 500g 1 packet). the ribs were >1kg so we added 2 packets.

we cooked 10mins longer than my usual 45-50mins! but actually the ribs were still slightly tough, though we still walloped 3 pieces each (2 long & one short so maybe 2.5).

later my friend cooked another 15mins for his mom & family, and he said the ribs texture were softer & soup also tasted better.

i actually like a texture that is firmer & has more bite & not falling apart. but in this case, post testing afterwards, we know now that these ribs needed about 1hr 10-15mins.

for the soup, this was also very tasty, and one friend prefers this teochew bkt spices.

for myself i prefer my usual ilc bkt spices(the packet on the left in the photo further up)., which i feel brings out the natural sweetness of the pork better & make the soup really balanced & tasty.

my friend’s prime ribs were the far superior fresh ribs. i just use frozen prime ribs from sheng shiong.

lemak coconut milk, good gula melaka, sweet red beans. at S$3.90++
