My Little Spanish Place, @ 619 Bukit Timah Road

My Little Spanish Place, @ 619 Bukit Timah Road This place is worth every single penny spent in my view. Chef Edward is now a mate. He is a genius in the kitchen, without doubt. My Little Spanish Place, @ 619 Bukit Timah Road, or @ Boat Quay are seriously die, die, must try restaurants in Singapore. You just simply have to try once. This review is actually a re-write of the very first time we went to Edward's place, but I tell you, it feels like yesterday. I can still taste the food. It really ...

Ceviche

Ceviche I made this one up today. Something new for the gang. My Ceviche. I think you are going to like this one. Looks good, and boy oh boy the taste. Like a bloody Mary on steroids. I had Ceviche for the first time at the street food congress in Singapore.  Remember when I met Mr Bourdain? One of his TV show's trips was to Mexico when he visited these lovely ladies at their street food cart. Yes they were at the food congress and I was able to try their absolutely amazing ceviche. ...

Fried fish fillet with prawns, in a cream of mushroom sauce

Fried fish fillet with prawns, with a cream of mushroom sauce A new fish dish, that began with my Mary saying; "Don't forget we have leftovers." What she actually meat was, we have a fish fillet and about 6 prawns remaining from what I had cooked the day before.

This will serve about 2-4 depending on hunger levels: 1 firm white fish fillet - cod, snapper etc; 6-8 shelled prawns (A ...

Fish and Prawn Pie

Fish and Prawn Pie Never tried creating this sort of dish before, so thought I would give it a go for Singapore National Day back in 2013 - a long time ago for sure. But the recipe is a cracker, and I think you'll agree it looks damn good too. So here comes my Fish and Prawn Pie. I think I ended up spending more on the ingredients for this dish than Singapore did on its fireworks this year. The pie also definitely lasted longer than the fireworks. Ha Ha... I didn't taste this one ...

Cheesy, creamy potatoes

Cheesy, creamy potatoes I suppose a sort of spin on Dauphinoise Potatoes - but let's go for the full heart attack, no point pussy footing around with this one. Loaded up with all things bad, which then of course makes it all so good. My Cheesy, creamy potatoes. These will go great with any meat dish - beef, chicken, pork I really don't see it being wrong with anything. Even on its own, perhaps with a salad to accompany as it can be rather filling too. You'll have a huge baking tray ...

Beer bum chicken

Beer Bum Chicken Are you a leg or a breast man? Neither I like it up the bum! Here comes my Beer Bum Chicken. Sounds shocking doesn't it. Beer Bum Chicken. Have you ever had Beer Bum Chicken? If you have not then you are seriously missing out, as this is likely to be the best roast chicken you will ever have. Do you usually roast the pants of your chicken. Does it come out a little dry when finished. Well here is a method to never have that happen again, those days are in the past! My ...

Black Pepper Beef

Black Pepper Beef This little food journey starts with a recommendation from a friend and client who is actually Cambodian - Po. Po is a fellow foodie, and was delighted to hear that I had written my cook book for charity, and of course that that was all in aid of his country folk. Especially as his family was one of those lucky enough to escape Pol Pot, when they fled to Australia. So off to Changi Road we went, to Siamese Cat Restaurant. This has now moved though - take note. In tribute here ...

Indian oxtail & lentil curry

Oxtail & lentil curry If I remember rightly this creation came from eating a brunch one day on our ravels through Asia. I fell in love with the dish immediately and swore to myself that I need to re-create my own version, and strangely enough this is how my Oxtail & lentil curry was created. If I remember correctly I had this curry in Penang when Mary and the kids and I visited once. So in honour of that memory I created this dish in July 2013 - Oxtail & lentil curry. I used ...
