The feast. Oh…we had ice cream and cookie sandwich, and mooncakes from Raffles Hotel for dessert. Also, two bottles of red, two bottles of white and one bottle of champagne. And too much gossip/bitching. Ok, that’s all.
If happiness were a dish, this would be it. To begin with, the crabs were so fresh. A tip I learned tonight is to always buy medium-sized crabs. Not only are they easier to handle, but their meats tend to be sweeter and their shells are softer too. This here, ladies and gentlemen, is kam heong crab. I miss kam heong-style so much, I was ecstatic to see this on the menu tonight. Dried shrimps are first wok-fried with curry leaves and cili padi until fragrant before the crabs are added into the wok. Bring on the rice!
Who doesn’t love wings, right? Well, these here are amazing. Marinated with shoyu and shichimi togarashi, they were then baked over low heat for 30 minutes on each side. I tell you, getting chicken wings right is an art in its own right.
Al dente spaghetti tossed in a sauce made with organic tomatoes and herbs, and served with four very delicious vegan meatballs (think: beet, chickpea, coriander, cumin, et al). I probably can eat this everyday. (at Real Food Novena)
What an interesting omelette of zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and pineapple. Side of mesclun, lightly drizzled with vinaigrette, and that amazing crown of perfectly toasted ciabatta smeared with tomato sauce and mozzarella. (at Real Food Novena)
Beet and millet burger…such interesting texture and flavour. Its only slight imperfection is its overly hefty bun which wasn’t toasted enough. What’s interesting is how the usual side of deep-fried potato wedges are made healthy by switching them for lightly seared sweet potato wedges. (at Real Food Novena)
