all the 9/10 dishes were very good this evening. ^^

braised duck

braised duck was superb, very “pang” and meat very tender and moist. very easy to make, just 1hr 15mins braising with tai hwa chicken marinade with all the aromatics.

today was great challenge as i did 4 cups for 12pax, usually i do 2cups to 3cups rice.

CCG was next to me the whole time in the kitchen watching over with me while i get ready other dishes, waiting for the rice to slowly cook, about 45-50mins.

minced pork tofu can be improved. tofu was great, just need to infuse the gravy flavour a bit more.
