Shiok! Home Hotpot with Bakuteh Soup Base on 21Oct2022

had hotpot with bakuteh soup base for 5pax OPS+LKY on 21.10.2022.^

I use belly pork and pigtail as bkt soup base, don’t want to waste good prime ribs.

pig tail add to the collagen pot, very tasty soup.

most important together with soup base are the dips & chilli..I have homemade chicken rice chilli..also made mala + san cha sauce, and also have Korean meat dip…plus lots of chopped scallions etc

really shiok no different from eating out.

Dr Matthias Committee 6pax Lunch @ Hoang Hau on 7Oct2022

dr matthias committee met for 6pax lunch @ hoang hau vietnamese restaurant by leng khiang on 7.10.2022.^^

this committee’s first outing over 2 yrs…:-)

the rice paper rolls…were great…nice dip sauce and the belly pork done well.

eel porridge is a north vietnamese dish..even cheow ghee 5 yrs in hcmc not tried before. it is unique and really good, and so much ingredients, prepared very fresh live eels..a really excellent dish.

lobster bun is perfect dish…live lobster fresh and sweet, and the lobster tomalley (liver, roe etc) totally infused into the beehoon..

(bun is beehoon in in bun cha, one of the most popular vietnamese dish beehoon with ngor hiang and pork)

this dish even better than the best lobster pasta I had, which is at 8picure…

the jap wagyu was excellent too..and perfectly grilled and matched with the king oyster mushrooms…

had a really enjoyable lunch with RI bros and friends.

Good Turtle Soup @ Very Lucky Jln Berseh FC on 5Oct2022

went to mustafa to do something for dr matthias fund

met OPS bros & LKY for early lunch 11.30am at jln berseh FC


from very lucky

S$40 turtle soup

S$7 claypot rice

turtle soup was good ..I not take maybe 10yrs liao..enjoyed it the gelatinous parts organs and all..soup was very good

but actually no better than a simple pig organ soup at cheng chee mun kee..enjoyed that more so no need to take turtle soup la for me

S$7 claypot rise was good..better than expected fragrant flavourful..more than enuf for 5pax though stall owner tried to coax me to order S$15 lol!

S$6.50 ter kar also good ..nothing special no better than my own

hak chong bought a large mutton rib soup..

this I don’t like..very poor..among the worst I had..

柴船头far far ahead unreachable..

mutton ribs totally overbooked no texture no sweetness..soup is light overly sweet unnatural sweetness not meat savoury sweetness..really bad..

I took only 1 rib & a little soup like 1/5 bowl that’s it enuf for me
