Kennett’s Kilo Under Pressure #3

Kennett's Kilo Under Pressure #3 Here we go folks. This is what I am planning for the second course on 6th October. Kennett's Kilo Under Pressure #3 is Hanoi Pho Bo. The worldly renowned soup from Vietnam. Fabled in Singapore at the likes of Long Phung on Joo Chiat Road (see blog). This is a tough one. This is generations hand down recipe stuff happening here. 8 hours just for prepping the stock. Even a global battle between the French and Vietnamese for its origins. The French saying Pho ...

Perle Noire @ Siglap

Perle Noire @ Siglap We haven't been back for a while. Since the last time of coming Perle Noire @ Siglap has even changed address. OK don't panic, as it is literally next door to where it was originally. Here is my review of Perle Noire @ Siglap when they were at their old address, click here. A new menu too, or perhaps just that we chose new items to eat today. You still have to love this place, the food is incredible. ALWAYS good. And the new items we ate today were following in that vein ...

Khun Mookata @ Siglap

Khun Mookata @ Siglap I know I know I know. You're probably thinking, bloody hell how many time can you review the same eating joint. Well here is another for Khun Mookata @ Siglap. I am trying different media, namely video now for my reviews and want to see if you like this or not. I have used Greg's because we're there once or twice a month minimum, and is therefore a good place to start. PLUS as you cook for yourself here, I can sort of build up the story of the why you should eat ...

Asian Beef Tacos

Asian Beef Tacos I know what you're thinking... He's already shared a recipe for his Asian Beef Tacos, well yes I did. Remember the rolling pin trick for the taco creation and all that. Well at my son's recent birthday party I thought I'll do them again, although this time cheating by using pre-made taco shells from the supermarket, and changing a few ingredients as I was making these for a gang of 14 years olds. Here's how we went. This made about 12 tacos. Use the zip-lock bag tip as you ...

Boracay, Philippines Review

Boracay, Philippines Review No this not The Hangover folks, this is The Honeymoon. This is Boracay, Philippines Review. At some points it may have felt a little like The Hangover ha ha. So The Semi-Naked Chef and his new wife and the kids of course, decide to have a few days away in paradise on the small island of Boracay, just off the main island of Panay, and the Province of Aklan right at the very tip of Panay. Our first time away together for 12 months because of the visa issues as ...

Backyard BBQ, Boracay

Backyard BBQ, Boracay Wandering around the beautiful Filipino island of Boracay, we stumbled across Backyard BBQ, Boracay. Yep we'll give this a try thought I. Packed out - a good sign. Smoky, BBQ smells a wafting - another good sign. Smiley faces - always a good sign. Mix of locals and foreign, again a good sign in my reckoning. Now I just read their Facebook page for Backyard BBQ, Boracay and they get a bit of a slating from a couple of guys stating foreigners get preference and they are ...

Buko, on Boracay

Buko, on Boracay What is Buko and what us Buko , on Boracay? Well it is basically fresh coconut. Literally plucked from the tree and then hack up to leave it open at one end and flat on the other. Normally served with straw and soon as you want to eat the delicious white flesh within side. I remember being a kid in England and attending summer fairs and the like - and yes there was the coconut shy, where you had to throw balls at coconuts to win them as the gift. Now those coconuts don't look ...

Ole Tapas Bar & Restaurant

Ole Tapas Bar & Restaurant I tell you what folks I'd go here again for certain.Where to eat on a Friday night in Boracay, Philippines? Semi-Naked Chef and family were in the Philippines for a short family vacation, literally eating our way across the island. We walked passed Ole Tapas Bar & Restaurant at Station 2. It was packed to the rafters, apart from a full 6 seater table becoming free right at the front in the open air. Yep I'll have that thanks! It was clearly fate - and I am ...
