a friend organised for us to watch exodus (& we had light dinner at timhowan at west gate mall after the show). got homecooked lunch thrown in some more. fully fed before crossing the red sea. haha. ^^
there were 6 of us joining lunch on 19.12.2014. we had a scrumptious lunch..truly a labour of love.. 🙂
another friend came later & brought back the thai curry & some other food which they then had for dinner after “dry swimming” & was singing praises on how good the thai curry was over whatsapp.
our superbred teochew ah hia who knows everything under the sun about teochew food, culture & whatnots brought some teochew cooked fishes from chong boon market at amk ave10.
we had buddha jump over the wall bjotw. there were thick mushrooms, fish maw, chicken & sliced abalones.
the 糖醋排骨 sweet sour pork ribs was excellent, very tender & mildly sweet, great texture & taste.
i loved the claypot rice, very nice flavours. the chinese sausage & duck liver sausage were just wonderful. had a second helping for someone who eschew carbs.
thai curry was ok for me. nice aromatic thai curry using pre-packed sauce bought from beach road.
& there was dried oysters with moss or 蚝屎髮菜 or 好事发财 all ready for chinese new year.
the teochew ah hia bought some “her poon” cooked fish (鱼饭) = 1 “gnor soon” (treadfin), 2 “ang huay tor” (yellow croaker or 小黄鱼) & some silver fish. the friend prepared some bean paste 豆浆 & some “sng ni chor” 蒜泥醋 for fish dip. great stuff!
i am teochew & though i like cooked fish (i mostly prefer mullet 乌鱼) i am not overly enamoured with them. we managed to finish 1 treadfin & 1 yellow croaker & some silver fish among us.
egg pancake used some thai vegetables (looked like dill). nice, i liked it.
& we finished off with some rosella jelly with mango dessert. i finished 1 whole lot. 🙂
