weiyi laksa 唯一辣沙 18.4.2017

did some chores this morning & passed by tanglin halt food centre on 18.4.2017. ^^

it was 9.45am, but there was a queue at weiyi laksa 唯一辣沙. about 9pax. luckily everyone buys one bowl so just about 10mins+ queue, not so bad.

ate here a few times this year.

i always take the S$5, cockles + chicken + taupok (no. 6 combination) with thick beehoon mee.

everything the same. good as always.

i like weiyi laksa 唯一辣沙 particularly because it is lemak but not very lemak (& sweet) like katong laksa.

& it is a lot more savoury, and the sweetness also comes from the ingredients like chicken & taupok.

a nourishing bowl of goodness.

now i need to be more careful of my diet, so maybe have to reduce. 🙂

Kurobuta & Prawn Alio Olio (Own Recipe) on 18Apr2017

kurobuta & prawn alio olio

eating alone this evening on 18.4.2017. been doing that a bit recently. 🙂

kurobuta & prawn alio olio

had some leftover shabu kurobuta in the freezer. decided to use them.

shabu (涮) simply means to poach for few seconds (8secs) in boiling water, like in a hotpot or steamboat, meaning the meat are very thinly sliced for that purpose.

i decided also to add 4 prawns. these are items are could be easily defrosted &prepared.

kurobuta & prawn alio olio

basically it was making alio olio.

& i figured any ingredients that makes it flavourful & tasty would deliver a great pasta.

kurobuta & prawn

alio olio is easy to do.

usually i browned a whole bulb of garlic cloves in olive oil. since kurobuta has lots of oil, so i cooked kurobuta first (real quick for the thin slices), set aside & used the oil to brown the garlic. i also added cut chilli padi & thai sweet basil.

then i cooked the prawns, seasoned with fish sauce & white pepper.

and that’s it. that’s all there is to it for making a very tasty pasta.

kurobuta & prawn alio olio

i boiled the pasta per instructions (8mins for instant spaghetti) to just below al dente.
