Thai Egg Baskets

Thai Egg Baskets Get your steady hands ready for this recipe. This is one of the trickier recipes I have ever written for you guys to make. These Thai Egg Baskets, are complex. But still please have a go, so bloody nice when you finish them as I think you'll agree from the photo. This is a Thai recipe, that I have messed about with a bit. In Thailand they'll have a special dispenser that is cone shaped to draw out the egg basket criss cross. I simply used an oil dispenser as that ...

Spam Cornettos

Spam Cornettos This is absolutely a great recipe for the kids. As usual it was all caused because we were running late for bed one Sunday and no dinner had been prepared. So a quick rummage in the fridge, a quick creative thought, and my Spam Cornettos were born.  These serving cone things were bought some time ago, and had just been laying in the drawer. I thought it would be a giggle to use these for this dish, and they also became the reason for naming them Spam Cornettos. Yes it is ...

Baked Beans on Toast

Baked Beans on Toast So the poor Semi-Naked Chef came home one day from work one day and thee was not a scrap of food was available for him. So what to do? I know, I really fancy beans on toast. Bloody hell, no Heinz in the cupboard at - just like Mrs Hubbard it was bare. I still want it so now I'll have to make my own, so I created my Baked Beans on Toast. These would be for a breakfast or brunch, sitting outside somewhere with a lovely hot cup of coffee. This would probably be ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...
