A Treat With Pan-Grilled Tuna Steak

Pan-Seared Tuna Steak

Pan-Seared Tuna Steak 2

The guy and I have been harbouring this thought for a long time now. We’ve been wanting to try cooking a chunk of tuna steak on a grill pan at home, but given that it’s such an expensive piece of ingredient, we’ve been putting it off for a long while. Plus, none of us was confident of doing it the right way even though we’ve been watching a lot of cooking programmes like Jamie Oliver and Master Chef. These western chefs love cooking fresh sashimis on their grill plates, and when they do, I will go “Nooooo…..! They should be eating this raw!

Mui Fun

Time really passes by very quickly, especially now that we are constantly on our toes, busying ourselves with the little boy.

Dry Mee Siam

There are two different types of mee siam that Singaporeans love eating. One is the traditional Malay style rice vermicelli with a spicy and tangy thick soup gravy that you eat the vermicelli with; the other is a recently evolved fusion take which is stir-fried and less spicy. The latter version is frequently served at buffets as the main dish as it can be prepared halal, this  being one of the key requirements for serving food at events and festivals in Singapore.
