Stuffed Chillis Smile Feb 11, 2016

With free time, we were once again back at our favourite restaurant and this time we brought the grandparents with us. They were rather grumpy about how far this place was from their home however things changed once they tried the food.

 
Although I'm not very good with spice despite how much I like it, we ordered many of these stuffed green chillies with fish paste. This is super yummy because the fish paste is nice & chewy and the chillies are sweet. However it gets rather spicy near the stem which gives a super big punch that have you downing a whole glass of cold water.

 
Then like always, we got the plate of steamed minced pork with prawn paste. This was delicious especially over a nice bowl of hot white rice, plus ladling a little of the gravy over. It even got a stamp of approval from my rather fussy grandfather.

 
This time we ordered something new which has immediately become a favourite of ours. We got the braised hairy cucumber with fried baby shrimp and this was super yummy. Just scooping a big serving of this and putting it over my rice was comforting enough. I had such a nostalgic feeling just eating it like that.

All the food is soooo good that the drive down didn't even matter. :3

Dinner with the girls Smile Feb 11, 2016

For another girl's night only dinner with my best friend, we found ourselves trying out this new joint in town. It was rather difficult to find but the ambience is quite nice once we were inside. Although the outside looks rather dodgy, do not be fooled by that as Black Market has a rather classy interior. 

 
To share we ordered the rather popular oven baked pork ribs that was coated in a super thick black pepper sauce. I liked this because it was different than the usual sweet and smokey barbeque sauce which I never really liked. Plus the meat was incredibly tender that it near fell off the bone and yet had a nice crust on the outside. Though the side salad was disappointing.

 
Another main we ordered to share was the prawn baked over rice with cream sauce and cheese. I had picked this because the picture was hella alluring so I got it however it was a little disappointing when it arrived. The prawns were nowhere as big as I expected and definitely not worth the steep price tag it came with. Even if the cream sauce was super decadant and yummy baked over the rice. 

Personally I feel like the food here is a hit or miss. However if you're looking for a nice night out and want to splurge a little, then definitely give Black Market a try.

This was my first visit to the Ming's Room which was highly recommended by my mother. Apparently she's had business meeting's there before and loved the food, so she brought my sister & I there for brunch that weekend. No surprise that it was filled with lots of people since it was the weekend.

 
My favourite was the char siew pao. The bun was super soft and fluffy plus nicely hot from being steamed for the right amount of time. Then the inside was super good as the pork was nice & juicy plus the sauce tasted just right. I loved it so much that we had to order another basket cause I wanted more.

 
And another favourite of that day was these pork ribs. Although it wasn't as good as the ones I could get at Jin Xuan, these were infinitely better than any we can get elsewhere. The meat was succulent and tender plus the sauce was nicely flavoured. I just wish it had more garlic & black beans to give it an extra ooomph. 

 
Then we also got the steamed pork siu mai which was also really good. It was bigger in size than other regular places which is understandable considering that the prices here was also slightly higher. Though completely worth it!

We should have ordered more but we did not want to be overly greedy like always. Now I can't wait to be back just for the pao.

For quick lunch after dropping by the bank to run some errands, we decided to eat at KIP Seafood which was mom's favourite. I was just there because nobody wanted to eat banana leaf rice as I suggested. 

 
This was a new addition and a definite must order whenever I see it. This is the traditional loh bak which is flavoured meat wrapped in bean curd sheets which will be deep fried to crispy perfection. Honestly this was nothing too great to shout about even though the meat was leaner than most places, only thing is the flavour was lacking.

 
By my request, we ordered this stir-fried potato leaves with brinjal in bean paste sauce. Oddly enough it came with several pieces of crisped up anchovies which I wasn't interested in. However this tasted really nice because of the salty sauce & softly braised brinjal which is my favourite.

The food here is rather weird in its flavour because the chef comes up with many different combinations. But all good so come here to give it a try!

Porky afternoon Smile Feb 10, 2016

After running some errands for the boss at the bank nearby, my colleague & I dropped by Champ's for lunch. There were just too many people and with a long line, we decided that it was better to get something to eat first rather than stick around with the lunch-hour crowd. 

 
This was my favourite order of the day. It's bascally one century egg sliced into fours and served with a side of pickled ginger. I presume that this was a duck egg because the yolk was soft & custard-like which was heavenly to eat especially with the tangy yet spicy ginger. I could eat this all on my own. 

 
Then for main to share we ordered braised pork belly with preserved vegetables. This is my favourite comfort food which my grandma cooked often back home. Although the flavour profile isn't exactly the same as this is more savoury than sweet, I still think it's pretty good as the meat portion was big enough for two to share with lots of sauce & veggies. 

 
Rather than have a serving on rice, I opted for the fried mantao instead and dipped it into the pork sauce. This was fresh out of the fryer which was pretty amazing especially after getting soaked in lots of the preserved veggie sauce & some belacan chilli.

If you're around the area and is looking for something different, then try Champ's Kitchen. They have traditional shanghainese/taiwanese pork dishes which are actually pretty good even if it will clog an artery or two.
