made 4pax dinner with lisa, sulin & aunty bes on 15.3.2021.^^
thai yellow curry sotong
claypot tanhoon prawns
fried rice with minced pork & egg
& aunty bes added a sambal petai prawns – very nice!
sotong easy to make..didn’t have vegetables, so just added yellow onions and red chiili. fried with garlic (I cut 3 large cloves into 4 each)…then added dancing chef thai yellow curry paste…last, add sotong, cooked for 3 mins, off fire and cover, let dish continue cooking in residual heat.
didn’t have coriander for tanhoon prawns. just fried garlic cloves, shallots and spring onions in oil, then added chicken stock and 1 tbsp oyster sauce and reduce, and lots of black pepper feel the aroma. when ready to serve, bring to boil the stock, add prawns seasoned with fish sauce and white pepper, then add tanhoon, cook 1 min, off fire and toss, then cover, cook in residual heat.
fried rice I fried lots of minced garlic, then added 150g minced pork and 1 tbsp oyster sauce, cooked minced pork, then added 1 cup cooked rice and fried high heat. remove fried rice, fried 3 eggs high heat till formed, then added back friend rice, fried high heat, off fire, add crispy haebeehiam chilli and mixed. taste and add fish sauce if need.
leong ji is located in a coffeeshop. lunch was S$75 for 4pax zichar price and dishes surprisingly good.
the most unique dish was the rojak cuttlefish kang kong. quite delicious and wonderful texture. kang kong was deep-fried, with taupok etc and also cuttlefish & lots of hae kor aka prawn paste…very nice!
the next best dish for me was the hakka pork belly…this the best deep-fried pork belly I had…usually this dish is too salty and overcooked too dry and also oily..this one here was perfect.
I also enjoyed the excellent 生肠, crunchy and tasty…this actually the birth intestines or aka fallopian tubes lol!
the fish head curry was a average, competent dish for me. lots of vegetables & tau kee. curry was ok, fish meat was fresh…fish head kind of small..not much meat..WT liked it said better than other places.
chicken feet yeemeen also competent. there were 4 chicken feet one for each no need to fight..sauce was tasty yeemeen right texture..not quite the tasty infused入味 braised yeemeen in restaurants but really cannot “hiam” for S$6 yeemeen with 4 chicken feet I guess.
very good lunch we concluded and we will be back!
afterwards we went over to oasis food court & had ice kacang & chendol
