Lovely Delicious Dinner @ 8picure on 24Aug2022

had a wonderful evening 6pax dinner with leng khiang, swee hong, philip, jo & Lisa @ 8picure on 24.8.2022.^^

Lisa and I always enjoyed 8picure dishes. came here for family dinners for several years now including takeouts and dining during covid lockdowns and restrictions. chef Gabriel lee most deserving of support.

I ordered combination of sets and alacarte dishes so our friends could taste most of chef Gabriel’s delicious dishes including the amazing desserts.

gabriel offered spicy tuna crackers as amuse bouche.

this perhaps the least existing dish..it’s complimentary and perhaps ok to try for first time.

friends all loved the crab cake, a fusion take of Singapore chilli crab…it was good indeed!

the hamachi tartar was a bit plain? maybe to taste natural sashimi sweetness….

grilled octopus very good as always, very tender and consistent texture, and great with chickpea puree..could do with more bbq charred flavours..

friends all loved the truffle fungi risotto with foie gras..this certainly a wonderful dish to share.

we had 3 lobster squidink pasta to share among 6pax. this my favourite dish here. lobster done very well, fresh and sweet, and pasta with lobster bisque ratatouille sauce excellent as always…only that recently I enjoyed hoang hau’s lobster bun a few times..and that is something else altogether…so very tasty with the lobster tomalley sauce very well infused with the beehoon…I think the best lobster dish anywhere…

the cod and herb crusted rack of lamb were all superb dishes.

& so was the dessert…tiramisu the best I had anywhere including my own, and the coconut pannacotta with passion fruit and roasted pineapples superb too.

a really enjoyable chilled dinner with good friends..

haven’t taken pig organ soup for really long time.

soup was tasty sweet & ingredients & quantity good for $4.50

salted fish minced pork was good standard

big intestine was good too.

vinegar trotters was poor/mediocre..meat too soft overcooked & no fragrant vinegar taste

best dish was the ter Huan Giam chye pig organ soup.

I can just do $6.50 soup haha lol! w/o the rest mediocre stuff…

afterwards had good coffee at jln berseh fc.

116th Teban Gardens Community Breakfast on 19Aug2022 – Fungus Chicken

delivered homecooked fungus chicken for teban gardens friday community breakfast on 19.8.2022.^^

this my 116th friday breakfast community meal dish at teban gardens community service centre, 7th time on restart after a 2 year hiatus due to covid.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

I started cook a dish for teban gardens on friday unless i am traveling or otherwise indisposed. when I started cooking for HCA, this was reduced to 2 times a month (also 2times a month for HCA) so not overstretching my resources…
