Very Tasty Fish Soup, Casual Family Dinner on 29Aug2021

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.

Pong’s Laksa the Best! on 18Aug2021

made 1pax pong’s laksa for myself 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 on 18.8.2021.^^

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!

Delicious S$128 4pax Peking Duck Business Set Lunch @ Kai Gardens on 15Aug2021

had 5pax family sunday lunch @ kai gardens with wife, wen, PT, SL on 15.8.2021.^^

we took the S$128++ peking duck business set lunch for 4pax and dded couple dimsum – steamed pork ribs and xo cheong fun. 🙂

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.
