Braised Chicken and Potatoes – 86th Teban Gardens Community Breakfast on 15Mar2019

braised chicken with potatoes

made braised chicken and potatoes for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 15.3.2019.^^

this my 86th friday breakfast community meal dish 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 chicken with potatoes

this my regular dish, so quite straight forward.

just clean and drain 2kg cut chicken. then marinate with 2 tbsp of fish sauce, oyster sauce, light soy sauce, cornflour and sesame oil overnight in fridge.

braised chicken with potatoes

fry chicken with chopped garlic till cooked in the morning, cover about 6mins. add little water if required.

removed chicken and use the sauce to cook 6 large cut potatoes. add water if required. oiled 10mins to cook poatoes and reduce sauce. poke chopstick clean through or press potato against side of wok to break. that would be perfect doneness.

2 claypot rice
3 tofu prawns
4 fried romaine lettuce
5 fried hk kailan

J brought vinegared saba from japan.

CL brought flores birthday cake for CCG.

vinegared saba

i like the vinegared saba. japanese cured and pickled stuff all added sugar and a bit sweet. wife and CCG didn’t take.

seabream soup

for J’s seabream soup i used only ikan bilis, so i added a larger seabream fillet to give it natural fish sweetness.

when serving i poached sliced seabream fillet and added few leaves of organic chye sim per J’ request.

seabream soup 

for the 4 of us, i used chicken broth, intense chicken stock, added sliced ginger.

and poached sliced seabream fillet and added organic chye sim.

fish was fresh and the broth was very tasty. ^^

grilled saba

grilled saba

i did grilled saba, first time for me.

the saba i bought from sheng shion was very fresh, could feel pressing on the flesh and belly – firm and bouncy.

i rubbed sea salt inside cavity and outside and grilled on a rack in 250degC oven for 15mins. quite perfect – natural taste of the sea, very fresh, sweet and tasty. J, CL, i all enjoyed the grilled saba.

(i had 1 more saba in the chiller so i made another for J the next day)

pangrilled portobello

pangrilled portobello

the pangrilled portobello had only sea salt so a bit lacking in taste.

could do with the usual olive oil, balsamic and drizzle of agave nextar. the dish mainly prepared for J so didn’t add.

today’s claypot rice was excellent, great aroma and great, and super tender, moist, tasty chicken, breast and all.

prawn tofu

nicely shallowfried tofu well infused with chicken stock, and prawns perfectly done, just cooked, succulent and bouncy.

for prawn tofu just shallow fried 300g tofu cut into 12 pieces.

then fried chopped garlic, cut chilli, add 1cup chicken stock and 1 tbsp oyster sauce, 1tbsp flat corn flour and reduced to taste, then add 1 egg, let it formed then draw out the egg.

Expensive Average Soi 19 Thai Style Wantonmee on 13Mar2019

soi 19 thau wantonmee

son bought thai wanton noodles at soi 19 holland village on 13.3.2019.^^

very expensive! like $5.50 small for me $6.50 large for son.

2pax lunch with son

soi 19 thau wantonmee

soi 19 thau wantonmee

soi 19 thau wantonmee

noodles looked plain but were tasty enough. char siew was good, lots of larpok (crispy lard), a small and simple dish, quite tasty.

but i think fatty thai S$4 wanton mee at beach road was better, tastier, cheaper and larger serving..

also this wanton mee no better/tastier than jian kang wanton mee which just S$3 and you add S$1 for 3 pieces very tender and tasty pork ribs.

or 6th ave or queens road wantonmee..still kok kee wantonmee best for me

the chicken was poor & very expensive at $7! no comparison with my own 白斩鸡.

a friend told me later the stall not related to the soi 19 at banglok.

soi 19 thai wantonmee

S$7 chicken

dumplings

dumplings was ok, like any other.

soi 19 thau wantonmee

didn’t mind this especially when son  bought lunch.

not my kind of place when there are many other options cheaper, bigger serving and equal or better tasting.
