Atas Aussie Prime Ribs Bakuteh + 口水鸡 Saliva Chicken 2pax Bro Lunch on 31Mar2021

CCG came by for lunch on 31.3.2021.^^

made atas australian prime ribs bkt.very good 👍

I find it quite worthwhile to buy Aussie prime ribs at S$32/kg..this slab 9 pieces about 700g S$21+…

c/w sheng shiong indonesian prime ribs S$21.90/kg but with huge piece of useless loin meat also 8 ribs per kg thereabout and loin meat chunky and not nice…

I added 2 frozen brazilian ribs S$10/kg from chinatown wet market to add to near 1kg for the 30g ilc sachet to give enuf meat taste to the soup…

….CCG could tell right away lol!

made also a small saliva chicken 口水鸡

& meepok tar for CCG top with saliva chicken.

Heritage Kopi You & Charcoal Kaya Toast @ Yeap Seng Leong on 30Mar2021

LKY organised food tour starting with kopi you at yeap seng leong..on 30.3.2021.^^

this place kind of Singapore heritage worth a visit just for its history and memories.

YSL moved here from Victoria street, bugis since 1974..& according to the son now 58, the old man (his father) cycles everyday fro boon Keng here at 4am and open shop at 5am!

locals & foreigners alike come here looking for kopi you (slab pf butter in kopi)and toasted roasted on charcoal…

but my kopi tilok not strong enough & not that flavourful..

kaya toast ok not as good as

hainan story @ hillion mall

& got to wait long long…not that many customers but very slow..

still will come if in the vicinity for the feel of history…

the S$1 curry puff looks great on display..

but cannot pass leh ..curry not tasty & puff a bit chewy doughy..

A Great Family Time & Brunch @ Son’s Condo on 28Mar2021

went over to son’s place for coffee & brunch on sunday 28.3.2021.^^

wife bought croissants from bakery brera next to empress road market.

son made scrambled eggs & johnsonville beddar with cheddar sausages.

must say brera’s plain croissant really nice. I took 2/3 piece.

johnsonville bedder with cheddar is a family favourite, the kids and me, wife a bit too.

& son makes the best scramble eggs. better than any outside I had.

later daughter SL made some more bedder with cheddar.

SM brought mr cay along as well. JH studying for exams.

PT’s dad dropped off her dog pepsi, then went off to meet his friends like 1/2 yearly catch-up.

a great family time together on a sunday.

Quite Good Set Lunches @ The Masses on 25Mar2021

J bought 3pax lunch @ the masses on beach road on 25.3.2021.^^

I came after delivering HCA Hospice Care lunch..

just before 12pm thereabout cannot find parking ended up parking at bugus junction & walked..

food was good👍

crab pietee just $3 for 3, good loads of sweet crabmeat..

we took the $29++pax set lunch, which include coffee or tea…

the CCCC crabmeat chorizo caviar confit lemon with lobster sauce looks stunning tasted just good ok

turns out the purple cabbage stood out more..tasted great & equally stunning looks..

I seldom take duck confit, did today & it was better than most..skin crispy and meat was moist and tender and tasty..some I had previously meat was sinewy and old…& quite surprisingly the horfun that came with it wokhae really good

YS’s chicken was good too, quite tender, though there was the end piece he started with which he said tough

for me, J’s claypot angus beef cheek was best of 3..tender & tasty.

chef dylan ong has a great philosophy 众 as 3 人 – himself, his team and customers…let see how the masses develops…

Good Tapao Zichar Dishes from Bee Kia on 23Mar2021

family went to son’s new place wenyu & PT tapao zichar dishes from bee kia on 23.3.2021.^^

good, competent zichar dishes.

prawn paste chicken was good. for me the hk street chun kee harjeongai 虾酱鸡still better. 🙂

seafood horn was very good…wokhae quite excellent, considering tapao…and a lot of ingredients..would be better even if eating at the stall…

beef horfun was good too…beef tender and not overly tenderised, artificial….flavour was good..just too much carbs…

tofu was ok, competent…likewise sambal Kang kong…nothing special really.

had a great family gathering…

today last day of son’s wedding leave..tapao quite good… no clean effort cooking and cleaning..

22nd 25pax Lunch for HCA Hospice Care on 25Mar2021

made HCA Hospice Care 25pax lunch on 25.3.2021.^^

  1. steamed wine chicken with wolfberries
  2. spicy beanpaste pork softbones
  3. assam dory steak
  4. stirfry chinese cabbage

for chicken I tried out a new cooking method. just season chicken (whole boneless thighs) with fish sauce and huatiao wine overnight in fridge. then frychopped garlic, add chicken, add chicken stock, cook for 8mins, add wolf berries for last 1min, then off fire poach for 10mins. then cut the thighs. very tender chicken and tasty broth/gravy.

dory is a new dish I started 2 weeks back..this time I added assam paste. very tasty also…I used this patin fish because it has no small bones only big bones..HCA requested I removed the bones, as they are shorthanded and difficult to remove bones at the time of serving.

sure that is something I can do, so ok.
