Hainanese Chicken Rice

Hainanese Chicken Rice This is one of the quintessential dishes of Singapore. Dare I have a go at recreating my own version of Hainanese Chicken Rice? Is it like stepping on the toes of Singaporean food authenticity? I tell you what, who cares, as here comes my version for you to try. This is also one of Bourdain's favourite Singaporean dishes, and he has it every time he comes. Also don't forget Ramsay had a hawker challenge to compete against a local chef, and lost. I tell you ...

Sweetcorn, Sesame, Pandan, Coconut, & Butter Dessert

Sweetcorn, Sesame, Pandan, Coconut, & Butter Dessert You know I love street food, well I hope you have realised that by now. This idea came from a trip t Philippines where we stood on a rickety rope bridge and consumed - Sweetcorn, Sesame, Pandan, Coconut, & Butter Dessert - come on how good is this going to be.  This turned out to be an absolute cracker. Ideal for a starter or as I have been making it for dessert. It is quite salty, but also sweet - so this is a savoury ...

DB Bistro Moderne

DB Bistro Moderne Hmmm well I thought this man, this chef, a tad arrogant - well he is French after all, but... I have to say this restaurant is bloody good. Food it top drawer. Save your money though as it isn't cheap. I welcome you to DB Bistro Moderne @ Marina Bay Sands. Off I went to take Amy to Hi5 one day, and then after Mary, Ollie and Jude joined us to go to lunch. Where to go? We are in Marina Bay Sands, in the theatre - what's that opposite a pizza joint, excellent. Ahhhh ...

Pork and Mushroom Soup

Pork and Mushroom Soup The usual situation happens. We have loads of bits in the fridge, it's a rainy day, and Baby Jude is fast asleep. A decision was made to stay indoors, but what to eat for dinner. Daddy gets creative and comes up with this cracking, Pork and Mushroom Soup. A quick scoot to Cold Storage to get a couple of bits and hey presto we had a really nice noodle soup. This will make 3 litres of Pork and Mushroom Soup, so more than enough for 4-6 people easily. There is an ...

Scrambled eggs with jambon

Scrambled eggs with jambon A starving Filipino is not what you want in a small condo. So one day I had to think fast for my Mary, and here's what I came up with - Scrambled eggs with jambon. She was hungry, and needed food before taking pain killers - this was initially cooked post Jude - shows you how along this one came out first. Emergency - quick what to do, I know eggs - but let's make them special... hmmmm what else is that I see in the fridge, BING!!! Scrambled eggs with ...

Din Tai Fung

Din Tai Fung Seriously for price, for taste, for ease, for the casual and family atmosphere you really cannot beat Din Tai Fung. I think this is now voted as the best Chinese restaurant chain in Singapore (actually it is Taiwanese - but don't tell any one!!!). We have been in so many different branches of this place all over the island of Singapore, and it always exceptional quality and exceptional taste. It is just so so good as a restaurant. We started off going here when Nina and I ...

Mushy peas, bacon, garlic and mayo sandwich

Mushy peas, bacon, garlic and mayo sandwich Kiss me definitely NOT Sandwich - I guarantee you will stink with this one folks... but it's worth it. Oh yeah baby. This is a cracking sandwich, this is my Mushy peas, bacon, garlic and mayo sandwich. I was having lunch with my new work colleagues one day, and spotted something in the menu that sounded so interesting. I didn't actually eat the interesting option this day, but sure did scribble down the concept for future consideration - and ...

Fish & Chips Semi-Naked Chef Style

Fish & Chips Semi-Naked Chef Style Another home made one here. I was literally wandering around M&S foodcourt and spotted some UK style frozen cod fillets. I bought it with no idea what I was going to prepare until later I was wandering around Cold Storage - PING goes the creative juices and therefore was created Fish & Chips Semi-Naked Chef Style. You may view this recipe as a little tricky perhaps, as there are three discreet elements to it. But I will make as simple as ...
