- wok fried lala

- poached hk kailan with shitake (by aunty bes)
& wife made nice cheng tng dessert
chicken rice, 白斩鸡 and chilli were excellent, quite a standard preparation for me.
braised trotters and belly pork (photo at bottom of page) quite perfect too, very tender, and gummy lots of collagen.
the belly pork(photo at bottom of page) i chilled for 2 hrs and cut and warmed up in the reheated sauce when serving.
char siew was ok tasty as usual texture not my best rendition.
the salted fish minced pork dish very good this evening…wife liked it too.
i did not take photo of tofu prawns so used a recent stock photo.
today’s tofu prawns ok not as good as my last, not as infused. i think using a deeper claypot better so tofu will be more infused.
nonya steamed golden snapper tangy sauce always good.
J said halibut flesh tasted better, sauce wise the nonya sauce better.
wok fried manila clams also recent stock photo.
today slightly overcooked, not as good as the last.
similarly for orh lua. it was good but not as my best recently.
a great family time together!
