Braised Sutchi Fillet with Leek & Onions – 36th Teban Gardens Community Breakfast on 21Jul2017

braised sutchi fillet with leek & onions

i did a simple & fast braised sutchi fillet with leek & onions dish for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 21.7.2017. ^^

this my 36th friday breakfast community meal at teban gardens community service centre.

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.

braised sutchi fillet

this really a fast & good dish! ^^

i bought 2kg of frozen sutchi fillet from sheng shion & cleaned with salt & dried laid on kitchen towels in the fridge overnight.

i started at 7am to prepare the dish.

basically i just fried cut ginger & 2 chili padi till fragrant, then added chopped garlic. then added the sutchi fillet. lastly i added the braising sauce = 3 tbsp light soy sauce, 2tbsp olive oil & 2 tbsp mirin.

cooked fillet for about 6mins, test the taste & texture..

braised sutchi fillet

it was quite perfect, the nice flavour of light soy sauce & olive oil.

a firm & breaking out texture & excellent taste. ^^

i transfer to the aluminium foil carrier, then drained the sauce & used for frying the leek & onions.

leek & onions

a very nice vegetable dish on its own la…

leek texture was just right, not yet mushy, still with good bite, and very tasty with the sauce.

Keng Eng Kee (KEK)

the last makan stop was Keng Eng Kee (KEK)@ alexandta village. 

the last time i was here was with a RI friend on 2 yrs ago on 17.6.2017.

Keng Eng Kee (KEK)

we ordered some water chestnut drinks. 🙂

waterchestnut drink 

quite good not too sweet…

min zhu rolls S$12.80

i ordered the min zhu rolls, i think S$’s a specialty here, with prawns, ham, mushrooms, celery etc..

i thought it was quite good, outside crispy & inside ingredients quite nice, though one piece was enough for me. my OPS friend thought it was so so..

claypot duck with sea cucumber S$20

the claypot duck with sea cucumber turned out to be the best dish this evening.

the gravy was very tasty, and duck & sea cucumber were good. sea cucumber were quite thin though, the cheap ones…

good yes, but still far from the sea cucumber duck at beng thin la…

3 eggs spinach 

the 3 eggs spinach was competent, nothing special.

hor fun S$8 

the seafood horfun was pretty good, good wok hae & quite tasty…

my friend thought it was not as good as quan ji zi char at telok ayer market. i think he is right.

hor fun 

still, quite nice hor fun…

dinner 5 dishes for 4pax = S$79 & drinks about $6.40.

we agreed that the dishes weren’t great & that quan ji zi char at telok ayer market would be better.

i thought KEK has a wider range of dishes, whereas quan ji mostly carb dishes.

& i probably did not order the best dishes. there was a crab promo=2 crabs 1.2kg for S$78. perhaps i should have ordered that.
