Asian Sprouts

Asian Sprouts with Bacon Apologies to all my non-porky friends but this really does need the bacon - it is a marriage made in heaven. I am a boy originally from Margate in England, and bacon was a staple fried breakfast option along with black-pudding, sausages, fried slice, tomatoes, mushrooms, beans and a mug of tea. You know, I kind of miss that some times when living in Asia. So let's bring an element of it back to home in Singapore thought I, and here we go Asian Sprouts with Bacon. ...

Thai style pork curry with coconut

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 ...

Filipino cucumber, tomato, onion, ginger and vinegar salad

Filipino cucumber, tomato, onion, ginger and vinegar salad Here we are in Tagbilaran, the Capital city of Bohol, in the Philippines. I happened to be in a tricycle (the motorbike taxis of the Philippines - a tuk tuk by any other name) with Ollie and Jimboy (Mary’s boy) on the way back to our hotel after watching a film in the city centre. We were cruising along at speed, and I spied the sign below. Any restaurant with a sign with a picture of beer on it has to be a winner in my book. Also ...
