15-minute Cantonese Congee

October 22, 2017 Be first to comment

Cantonese congee is undoubtedly my favourite type of porridge and my family would always order congee whenever we dine at Crystal Jade. For something seemingly so plain, Cantonese congee has a really rich flavour to it. And with its silky smooth consistency, there is no reason not to love congee! I far prefer it to its Teochew counterpart, in which …

Yam Paste

October 2, 2017 Be first to comment

The one thing I look forward to most whenever I attend Chinese banquet weddings, apart from seeing the bride and groom get married of course, is the dessert served at the end – that is if they serve yam paste (orh nee/芋泥)! Smooth, creamy yam paste, topped off with fragrant coconut milk, is an occasional treat for me since it’s …

KFC BBQ Meltz

I eat KFC probably two to three times a year, and when I do, I will always order their cheesy BBQ meltz if it’s available.

After coming back to Singapore, I told myself that I had to eat that again. I can’t remember what was in their dish because I was so busy gobbling down the food that …

Crispy Pork Belly (Burger)

Crispy pork belly burger

Roast pork belly is one of the occasional treats that I would have whenever I go to Crystal Jade with my family. Occasional not because it adds inches to my hips, but because it burns a hole in my parents’ pockets. I absolutely love roast pork belly – juicy, melt-in-your-mouth fats sandwiched between crispy crackling and tender, flavourful meat. They …

Crab Beehoon Soup

Melben Crab Beehoon Soup

Crab beehoon soup! Probably the one dish I would eat before I die. If you’ve never eaten crab beehoon soup before, you’re missing out on life! I’ve only tried the one at Melben Seafood Restaurant (Ang Mo Kio), and the queue is always insanely long. But trust me, the wait is worth it. Their crab beehoon broth is so rich …
