Asam Pedas Gravy with Bone Marrow

Asam Pedas Gravy with Bone Marrow Remember Tioman Island blog. Remember this dish below - the delicious Asam Pedas Oxtail dish. Mine clearly looks a lot different - bit more turmeric, no bones per se. So slight issue I have is getting access to bones in Singapore. The ones in Malaysia had like huge lumps of steak hanging from them, and bones marrow galore - here in Singapore I find the oxtail bones to be like those of a whippet dog - tiny. So improvise whilst still trying to keep a ...

Spicy Thai, Thai Cafe

Spicy Thai, Thai Cafe Spicy Thai, Thai Cafe - 01-35, Block 115 Aljunied Avenue 2, is a cracker. Believe me folks, this place is a BELTER! I really was in need of a Thai fix. But that food style can be quite hard to find in Singapore, as it is more the 'chain' of restaurants such as Thai Express, not really your hawker fair. The chains are OK, but they are chains. I needed something more authentic. Memories of Thailand trips with the family and friends, scoffing down plates of delicious ...

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 ...

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 ...

Thai style pork curry with coconut

Thai style pork curry with coconut It was one of those days. The family needed feeding. Damn what we got? “Not a lot”, was the answer. “Some pork is in the freezer.” Hmmmm, now that’s a great help – NOT! Down to the minimart I trudged with a list of 4 items, and ended up back upstairs in kitchen Kennett with 3 carrier bags full of stuff. Not all for the dish though, which I created in my mind whilst browsing, but not far from it. I am sticking this in to the Thai section, as I ...

Indonesian Oxtail Soup

Indonesian Oxtail Soup My Mum was visiting once, and we took off traveling Indonesia for a couple of nights. Living in Singapore that means a wee ferry ride of 40 minutes, and a car ride for about the same as we decided not the usual resorts of Bintan and Batam for this trip. Whilst there we had this incredible Indonesian Oxtail Soup. This is my recipe in honour of that amazing dish. We went to Bintan Island for this trip with Mum, and ended up staying at a little, “slightly tired”, ...
