115th Teban Gardens Community Breakfast on 22Jul2022 – Curry Chicken & Fried Egg Tanhoon

delivered homecooked dishes for teban gardens friday community breakfast on 22.7.2022.^^

  1. curry chicken & potatoes
  2. fried eggs with tanhoon

this my 115th friday breakfast community meal dish at teban gardens community service centre, 6th 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…

Tak Meng Bought Lunch @ Grumpy Bear Thomson Plaza on 20Jul2022

tak meng bought 4pax lunch @ grumpy bear with hian hai & wai sing on 20.7.2022.^^

manager service very good …

we had fish & chips, truffle chicken, cajun chicken & prawn & mushrooms mentaiko pasta

food ok la..

fish & chips and chicken quite ok passable, mentaiko pasta way, way below par, presentation not good looked like carbonara, quite tasteless & frozen prawns not done well grilled would be better than boiled or steamed..

after lunch hian hai bought kopi and we talked till past 3pm…

very nice lunch and afternoon with old pals and bros…

grumpy bear responded to google review

RI OPS Bros 6pax Homecooked Lunch on 19Jul2022

make 6pax RI & OPS bros lunch on 19.7.2022.^^

  1. bkt aussie prime ribs
  2. 白斩鸡& chicken rice
  3. hwa garden style claypot garoupa fish head
  4. 蒜泥白肉
  5. sambal kang kong

aussie pork ribs so good..more marbling and tasty…though it is true not all aussie pig are castrated unlike Indonesian and hence have “boar taint”…but this bit no smell leh..

my 白斩鸡& chicken rice always good, especially with homemade chilli..very nice

蒜泥白肉 today mala hawthorn sauce a bit dilute & not thickened enuf…added some more when finishing haha!

hwa garden style claypot garoupa fish head a bit mediocre mainly the gravy need to improve the taste

sambal Kang kong quite standrad..good taste…

nice 哥们lunch with good friends and bros。。

Wonderful 4pax Dinner @ Bruno’s Tanjong Katong on 10Jul2022

philip bought 4pax dinner @ Bruno’s tanjong katong on 10.7.2022.^^

https://goo.gl/maps/wzEUDQ7nkzcVDAiWA

agree with Stephen prices are on the high side for the location & ambience more of a cafe

food is good so that makes up for it though not specially good or better than others…

burrata with parma ham $40 not the best ..but doable

truffles pizza $48 good but price clearly way out for me ..I think $28 about it

rack of lamb $36 the best dish tender moist & tasty & a great tasty salad side

tagliata (di manzo) $48 pretty good not the best also great salad a bit ratatouille side

after dinner we had coffee..

server doesn’t know piccolo latte..I had flat white coffee was average I guess..got microfoam & bit of latte art not silky smooth fully integrated..not 1/2 as good as wenyu’s

8pax RI Bros Tapas Dinner on 7Jul2022

made 8pax RI bros dinner

menu

  1. pumpkin salad
  2. tortilla- spanish omelette
  3. flamed squid on cauliflower puree
  4. seafood squidink pasta
  5. beef brisket ragout tagliatelle (experimental)
  6. grilled cod in spicy tomato sauce
  7. canard à l’orange (duck in orange sauce =experimental)
  8. flamed sous vide aussie pork tomahawk in red wine tomatoes ratatouille
  9. peanut herb crusted rack of lamb
  10. tiramisu

seafood squidink past par excellence, everyone favourite.

the experimental beef brisket was very good for a braised meat pasta(24hrs 65degC oven then chopped and braised with tomato beef sauce not quite ragout, excellent with the tagliatelle, and the sliced beef was tender and tasty) though squidink pasta is still the pasta of choice.

everyone agreed best dish was the flamed sous vide aussie pork tomahawk in red wine tomatoes ratatouille…

canard à l’orange (duck in orange sauce =experimental) a small serving, quite good, sauce can be improved.

tiramisu not so good today…didn’t do for few years…couldn’t get the mascarpone I used previously & coffee too much liquid not strong enough…I made a very good tiramisu few days afterwards got all the ingredients right. 🙂

Thanks all for a wonderful evening jolly good time 🙏😎
