a wonderful memorable evening with great friends, missing LCH who is visiting son in australia.
all the 9/10 dishes were very good this evening. ^^
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.
braised trotters and belly pork were excellent too.
trotters kwl favourite. just the right texture, gelatinous and very flavourful. likewise the belly pork
claypot rice always good. good texture and always very tasty. the bottom bits were very tasty.
wife said not my best. indeed i have done better but this was very ok la…:-)
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.
taiwan fried belly pork was an experiment after having lovely taiwan 咸猪肉 at 花莲热炒stall.
my own recipe…almost there i would say…crispy outside tender inside…
salted fish minced pork LCM favourite. always good. will do some garnishing with cut chilli and scallions next time. 🙂
minced pork tofu can be improved. tofu was great, just need to infuse the gravy flavour a bit more.
claypot tanhoon prawns was excellent, among my best, quite perfect texture of tanhoon, moist, full of flavours and cooked just right, and likewise the prawns.
this time i added haebee and substantially enhanced the flavours. the bottom bits of tanhoon were super tasty.
took photo too late. 🙂
the nonya sauce angkorli was good as usual thanks to the tasty tangy gimson nonya sauce.
i added gimson nonya sauce also to the fried kang kang, sedap. 🙂
meimei brought really nice tapioca cake..i had a piece while i was getting dinner ready..liked it more when i took second piece after the food..same nice texture and not too sweet, as what jessie made..
LCM brought red wine.
NCL brought grapes..
CJ brought magnum ice cream,
KWL and june brought 2 tubs of msw and salted caramel ice cream.
CCG brought tong heng egg tarts and pastries.
LCJ did a good debrief of the kluang mission led by QTC.
good that while enjoying the fellowship the RI brothers also helped in some small ways with the community in kluang which ROCK House has been working and caring for.
