more importantly, i perfected the chilli sauce for the dry noodles-

1 bunch dry noodles, 1tsp oyster sauce, 1 tsp fish sauce PLUS 1tbsp crispy chilli about perfect.

the chye sim also leftover, just poached with the noodles.

the prawns and salmon i marinated with tsuyu and mirin and pangrilled, so teriyaki prawns and salmon belly. ^^

a delicious, nutritious bowl of noodles!

bone marrow pizza and vongole linguine best dishes …seafood stew very tasty but too ex, burrata not great, tagliata, squidink pasta and octopus average..

octopus S$35

octopus really so so, having taken so many nice octopus elsewhere…i would say poor for S$35!

seafood casserole S$48

squid ink tagliolini S$28

squid ink tagliolini S$28

the recent time we had squid ink tagliolini here it was good.

tagliata S$48

OPS Buddies 9pax Homecooked Claypot Rice Dinner on 29Mar2019

9pax homecooked dishes

made 9pax dinner for OPS bros & sis=with WM, HC, KS, CH, FM, WH, CF, KY, missing M on 29.3.2019-

1 claypot rice 沙煲饭
2 hk steamed garoupa 港蒸石斑
3 garlic steamed sotong 蒜蓉蒸花枝
4 salted fish steamed minced pork 咸鱼饼
5 tofu prawns 豆腐虾
6 char siew 叉烧
7 mala belly pork with veg 回锅肉
8 oyster sauce hk chye sim 蚝油菜心
9 salted fish minced pork eggwhite fried rice 咸鱼肉碎蛋白炒饭

FM brought ice creams WH brought korean strawberries CH brought yamashita doughnuts

char siew pretty ok despite major error of mixing up and applying red chilli oil instead of red fermented tofu..

garoupa was fresh just bought from teban gardens wet market this morning but slightly lor kor “rough texture”

forgot to take photo of cooked garoupa and garlic steamed sotong.

9pax homecooked dishes

i made 9 dishes for 9pax. 🙂

claypot rice

claypot rice always good. 🙂

a bit harder making for 9pax. i used 3cup+ rice and 1 whole chicken. i usually make 3 cups for 6pax with 1/2 chicken…estimating the amount of water to add etc is a bit less certain, needs judgement there is substantial marinade and water in the chicken.

hk steamed garoupa

garlic steamed sotong

i forgot to take photos of the cooked garoupa and sotong.

friends all commented garoupa fresh and my timing was good, however the fish was lor kor with tough texture, quite a disappointment!

char siew

i made a mistake on one dish the char siew. instead of red fermented beancurd i marinated with red chilli sauce. the bottles and content looked similar. i did not check properly.

fortunately the char siew was still very tender and the flavours were ok enough as char siew, but one could detect the red chilli oil taste which was kind of odd.

prawn tofu

my prawn tofu always good. stock very tasty and prawns excellent, bouncy and tasty, great texture and taste. i think i will try the egg tofu again see if tofu texture is better.

salted fish minced pork

salted fish minced pork is dish that everyone likes. 🙂

回锅肉

the 回锅肉 mala belly pork with carrots and potatoes is the least tokong dish…belly pork very tender…still it was heavy dish and belly pork not most popular with the ladies.

egg white fried rice

made the egg white fried rice specially for CH in case not enough claypot rice.

fried rice was ok. i think though not salty enough, can do with a bit more fish sauce.

fried chye sim

could get hk kailan so made do with chye sim. usual stir-fry with oyster sauce. good enough.

claypot rice

i steamed the whole sausages then cut them and added back to the claypot rice.

salted fish minced pork

salted fish minced pork really a grandma kind signature dish and can eat often outside at zi char and teochew muay stalls.

char siew

char siew

char siew turned out ok, despit i anyhow hatam added wrong wause, then the bun

tofu and stock ready for tofu prawns

shallow fried tofu and stock with egg all ready for kyoto station.

salted fish minced pork fried rice

for the fried rice, i first fried salted fish and minced pork then set aside and fried the egg white then fold over the rice and then mixed the small pieces of egg whites thoroughly.

claypot rice

we had a great evening sharing and fellowship among old freinds from primary school. 🙂

回锅肉 Mala Belly Pork with Vegetables – 88th Teban Gardens Community Breakfast on 29Mar2019

回锅肉mala belly pork with vegetables

made 回锅肉 mala belly pork with vegetables for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 29.3.2019.^^

this my 88th 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.

回锅肉mala belly pork with vegetables

tender cooked belly pork

tender cooked belly pork

for 回锅肉, i salted belly pork for  3hrs and boiled 1.5hrs the evening before and stored the cooked pork in double ziploc bag in the chiller overnight.

this way i can cut the belly pork nicely and cleanly this morning. you can feel the pork is tender when you are cutting it. 🙂

potatoes, carrots, onions

i cooked the carrots, onions and potatoes. added 2 tbsp of oyster sauce.

carrots had to be cooked first for 10mins, then added the potatoes, covered, add water if need, and cooked for another 10mins so potatoes were just cooked.

回锅肉mala belly pork with vegetables

added the sliced belly pork.

then added 1 heap tbsp mala chilli oil and the dish is done.

mala as i always say, is not just about spicy or numb. most importantly it is the fragrance, makes the dish really flavourful and tasty.

Great 2pax Steamboat Dinner @ Hua Ting Steamboat on 30Mar2019

dinner with wife @ hua ting steamboat

had 2pax dinner with wife @ hua ting steamboat claymore connect on 30.3.2019. ^^

we booked eatgo 50% discounts at 6pm.

bill was 2pax nett $70 after eatigo discounts.

they also have ocbc card 1 for 1 set menu at $48pax even cheaper just $48++ for 2pax

i think as good as 海底捞 and like 1/2 price. 🙂

yin yang steamboat soup base S$26

the yin yang soup base alone S$26, single S$22.

so for 2pax soup base not so worthwhile c/w large groups.

the sharksbone soup base was basically a pork bone soup with a huge bone, tasted nothing like sharks bone but was sweet.

hua ting steamboat

you order through the pad, with a lot of help from the servers. lol!

hua ting steamboat 

we were the first at 6pm. good enough crowd afterwards.

sauces

the sauces were excellent, just like 海底捞 i had in shanghai. didn’t go to 海底捞 in singapore.

usa angus beef S$14 1/2 portion 4 slices

the beef expensive but good.

kurobuta pork S$8 1/2 portion

kurobuta pork not so great, maybe try kurobuta belly next time.

sliced garoupa

sliced garoup ok can do without.

prawn paste with conpoy S$8

prawn paste with conpoy was very good.

cockles

cockles was slightly precooked for food safety.

i can do without.

beef stomach

beef stomach, pretty good, nothing special i guess.

dumplings and veg

the water cress was very good.

the dumplings as well, stuffed with prawns, which we ordered a second helping. reminded us of 不倒翁 in hong kong, that was much larger dumpling though just as good.

button mushrooms

button mushrooms also very good. will order this next time.

sweet potato glass noodles

we both on low carb. but this sweet potato glass noodles was good and didn’t feel heavy.

yin yang steamboat soup base

overall a great dinner and experience for S$70nett for 2pax after 50% eatigo discounts. of course it would be cheaper with 4pax or 6pax to share the soup base or if we took the ocbc 1 for 1 set at S$48 for 2pax.
