wife organised family dinner on 29.8.2021. ^^
I made a fish soup..everyone loved it
basically I rendered fragrant garden claypot pomfret soup, using sliced patin and sea bream.
fried fish head and bones with lots of browned crisp julienned ginger, 1 chilli padi, 5 cloves garlic cut into 3 each, and 1/2 sliced red onions, added salt and boiled for 3 hrs, reduced to a very tasty whitish soup, added 3 tbsp huadiao wine, boiled another 1-2hrs with cabbage and added 1 sour plum mashed…very very sweet tasty soup, and added sliced fish poached and served.
wife bought kai roast duck, pork ribs & crystal jade dimsum
wen PT bought hokkien mee, carrot cake & orh lua oyster omelette from Whampoa market.
nice enjoyable casual family dinner.

potato croquettes and scallop cauliflower were delightful..
Bothe pastas were very good, especially the spicy tomato based…will do more of this angel hair pasta…
the pork chop always good…
today the 24hrs rum steak a bit dry though same recipe at 62degC not sure why? probably not do rum again..
1pax pong’s laksa
pong’s laksa gravy
1pax pong’s laksa 1pax pong’s laksa
made 1pax pong’s laksa for myself
ah Heng’s curry chicken noodles my favourite…and pong’s laksa is a proxy – the best laksa for me, still not comparable with curry chicken noodles.
easy to make.
I added lots of haebee to make the gravy closer to curry chicken noodles, and followed the usual instructions, fried the laksa paste, then added chicken stock (instead of water), and 1 can of evaporated milk and 200ml packet of coconut milk. I cooked the taupok earlier separately in the chicken stock till soft and absorbent and added the teochew fish cake – everything like curry chicken noodles…usually I add my own 白斩鸡…today don’t have so added prawns.
and added thick beehoon mee…same same as my preference for curry chicken noodles.
a delicious dish!

the 2 appetisers – deep-fried fish skin salted egg flavoured not so salty was excellent, and the 小笼包very good too.
the set was wonderful as before.
peking duck among the best, as good or better than imperial treasure super peking duck. I like the crispy corn fritter which is unique and added texture to the peking duck roll.
after the skin, the restaurant served the chopped duck nicely – greedy us elected to eat than tapao. 🙂
the soup 例汤 was excellent.
garoupa fillet very good,
and the truffle angel hair was delicious, the best! really excellent…I will try making this myself…
really great lunch.

bakut prawn beehoon mee dry

pork softbones in chicken stock pork softbones in chicken stock
bakut prawn beehoon mee dry
made delciious bakut prawn beehoon mee lunch for SM & JH on 7.8.2021.^^
this just a quick and shortcut way to make a delicious tasty Bakut prawn beehoon mee. lol!
save the effort of frying boiling making prawn stock over many hours.
just cook pork soft bones in chicken stock for 1.5hrs…pork soft bones will be tender and tasty and soup sweet & tasty as well.
then add cleaned deveined large prawns and boil for few minutes…prawns will be just nice and totally fresh and sweet 鲜甜 and the soup will be tasty with great prawn stock taste.
making beehoon me dry is quite standard-
1tsp fish sauce, 1tsp oyster sauce, 1tsp tomato sauce, 2-3tsp black vinegar, 1tbsp oil and 1tbsp crispy prawn chilli & toast…..voila!
