Teochew Kailan Kway Teow

Teochew Kway Tio

I remember the time when I attended the Inaugural Teochew Festival at the Ngee Ann City in 2014. I was about three to four months pregnant then and was having morning sickness constantly throughout the day. It definitely wasn’t the best time and opportunity to go to a food haven like this one. Most people were there to devour all the Teochew goodies and all I could do was look at what people around me were gobbling up – oyster omelette, pork trotter jelly, green chives dumpling and Teochew kuehs etc. How I wish I could everything as well!

Creamy Basil Parmesan Soup

Basil & Parmesan Soup

Basil & Parmesan Soup 2

This is a simple soup to have that’s really tasty, cheesy, filling and heavenly by itself. In it lies all our favourite ingredients – macaroni and cheese for the big guy, chicken and carrots for the small guy, and basil and red bell pepper for me. The best thing about it is that I don’t have to cook a separate bowl of pasta or rice to go along with it because it is already a main dish in itself, fully loaded with all the healthy goodies such as tomatoes, leeks and garlic.

The Best Crispy Fried Chicken In Town!

Fried Chicken 2

There is nothing more satisfying than taking a bite into freshly deep-fried crunchy, crispy and flavourful chicken when you are having a very bad day, or a highly stressed up day, or a simple day when you just have to have a very bad craving for junk food. It’s not very difficult to satisfy this craving – just grab your phone and make a call. There are plenty of food outlets in Singapore that sell and will deliver deep-fried chicken packages to your doorstep – Kentucky Fried Chicken, NeNe Chicken, Korean Fried Chicken, Four Fingers etc. Most Singaporeans would likely have already tried at least one, if not all the chicken from these local chains already!

Medieval Jowtes With Almond Milk

Jowtes Almond Milk

Jowtes Almond Milk 2

This soup gives a rich and dark green colour when it’s cooked. It would perhaps scare anyone away from it, given its unappetising colour and menacing outlook. Nevertheless, it is packed with Vitamin A and C and a great source of magnesium, zinc and fiber – a healthy meal all by itself which is tasty and which defies its look!

Crispy Chicken On Broccoli & Cheese Rice

Crispy Chicken On Rice

Crispy Chicken On Rice 3

The little boy is developing a preference in taste at a rapid speed – one which I’m constantly challenging myself to catch up with. He could be very random though, sometimes preferring a cheese stick over a bun for breakfast and at other times preferring to have none at all. Recently, we started to buy buns and bread loaves for him to eat for breakfast and he loves it a lot. He would demand to have one first thing in the morning by pointing to the fridge and mumbling ‘mian bao’ (面包 – Chinese for ‘bread’). Just this morning, after finishing his cranberry bun and feeling happily satisfied about it, he looked over and saw my slice of raisin bread and demanded to have that as well. So his poor mum had to settle for less than half a slice of it, though secretly, she felt as if she was on cloud nine as all mums do.
