Pablo Original Cheese Tarts Taste test!

We celebrated Teacher's Day yesterday! Happy Teacher's Day to everyone~ As it is teacher's day, we always have a celebratory lunch for everyone outside and we all get to go back earlier. I took this chance to go to Wisma Atria to get the super hyped cheese tarts in Singapore which originated from Osaka. I wonder why i did not eat this while i was in Osaka. >.> Anyways, we can enjoy only the "medium" version of the cheese tart here, like in other overseas outlets of Pablo. I ordered the The original cheese tart which costs $15. Two other flavors, the matcha cheese tart with shiratama mochi and azuki or red beans; and the chocolate cheese tart, cost $18 each. 

As stated above, i have not tried the original one in Japan. However, the ones sold in Singapore boasts crispy crusts and a very soft cheesy fillings. The top is glazed with apricot jam. The queue was surprisingly short when i was there. Probably less than 10 people? It is worth a try for people who have not tried the ones sold in Japan.

Jia Xiang Nasi Lemak 家香椰浆饭 - Blue Nasi Lemak Rice?

So we had one week of #feedthethem where we post about Nasi Lemak so i googled what are the best ones out there, but of cos i post about the one i had at Toa Payoh Food Centre (Blk 75) . I had the chance again to visit this on my off day but then i couldn't find it. LOL. Nevermind. I went home and ordered through uberEATS. As you can see most of the rice is blue because of butterfly pea flower and it is all natural. There is a strong pandan flavor in the rice though. It comes with a fried chicken drumstick, peanuts and ikan bilis, fried egg and vegetables. The chicken was obviously over fried cos the fried chicken skin is dark in color. Um.. other than that there is nothing special...other than the instagram worthy rice. Is it Worth the shot?

Shun Feng Crayfish Delight - Not another seafood soup store?

Is this a trend? Lots of similar stores selling seafood soup are popping out everywhere!! This one is at Khatib and is near to the MRT Station so i decided to pop by and give it a shot. There is a short queue of not more than 10 people but there is a long wait. I guess it is not easy to make it bowl by bowl and also this helps to maintain the standard of the soup. 

I ordered the Crystal Crayfish Delight which cost $6. You can order the $10 if you have more than 1 people sharing. Queued for so long for this and it is so worth it~ the soup is however not as rich as the sumo big prawn. They sliced the crayfish into halves for you and it can be easily removed from the shells. There are also marinated handmade meatballs inside, tomatoes, fish slices and tofu. You have a choice to add either rice or crystal Hor fun. I suggest you choose the latter coz it is so yummy. I also read that the Mackerel Slices Delight ($7) had a much sweeter taste. Maybe that is what i will try next.

#DINNERGOALS Korean Chili Powder Recipes

1) I have been struggling to finish up the big pack of Korean Chili powder i gotten to make army stew. Been googling on any possible good recipes that i can make to utilise them, and i stumble upon this. I have no scallions and i do not know how to make that perfect googly yolk at the center but i can make do without those! ^^ I love that the sauce became this thick red mixture and is not spicy. It compliments the udon very well. 


print recipe

Kimchi Udon
Ingredients
  • 5 tablespoons Unsalted butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup Chopped kimchi, plus ⅓ cup kimchi juice
  • 2 tablespoons Gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste)
  • 1/2 cup Low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pack Udon Noodles
  • 1/4 cup Luncheon Meat and Enoki Mushrooms
Instructions
Heat 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high. Add chopped kimchi and gochujang and cook, stirring occasionally, until kimchi is softened and lightly caramelized, about 4 minutes. Add broth and kimchi juice and bring to a simmer. Cook until liquid is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. 
Meanwhile, boil noodles according to package directions.
Using tongs, transfer noodles to skillet and add remaining 3 Tbsp. butter; cook, tossing often, until sauce coats noodles, about 2 minutes.

2) I came across this recipe for Spicy Korean Soft Tofu Stew (Soondubuchigae) next! Quite easy to make and i tweaked it abit to include gochujang as i have left over from the Kimchi Udon. For the soup base, i added lobster broth instead so the soup has a sweet taste at first and spicy aftertaste. I also made udon to go with the soup. I should probably eat that with rice, but oh well. XD

#DINNERGOALS

1) I went to Daiso recently and got this Nabe soup pack. Decided to make some soup to go with rice. 1 pack can serve 2-3 people depends on how much ingredients you put in it? Mine's just enough for 2! I have broccoli, chicken, baby corn, baby carrots, white and brown enoki mushroom, and shiitake mushrooms. It is also quite easy to make this soup. You basically out the ingredients into a pot and pour the soup in until all ingredients are cooked. I also added tamago furikake on my rice. 

2) I still have a lot of Gochugaru left so i decided to make korean Budae Jjigae (Army Stew) with rice! Use a small bowl for the sauce and mix everything together. 
For the sauce, you need :
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper paste
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
You then add your ingredients into around 2.5 cups of chicken stock. You can gauge how much you need from how many people you are serving. Put the sauce in and cover with lid until everything is cooked. I think this is the last of my japanese rice. Not sure what i would make next though.

Cream buns from Hattendo Cafe & Nasi Lemak

1) Hattendo Cafe. I like the melon bun 🍞 more than the normal one. The pastry is so crispy and much preferred as compared to the pillowy soft bun. The melon bun is $3 each and the normal cream buns are $2.50 each. I thought i should get both kinds to try. I have the matcha, custard cream and chocolate flavour. I wouldn't say they are the best cream buns that I have had but they're good.

2) Toa Payoh Food Centre (Blk 75) Nasi Lemak. I have not eaten many of this fish in my life but Wow this Nasi lemak is nice~ the Pandan rice is so good. Very fragrant and the Pandan taste and smell is so strong. It served with an egg, chicken wing and ikan bilis. I added Extra sausage and crab stick in Chili sauce. Tpy always have such hidden gems. 😍😍

Deanna's Kitchen & Xie Kee Hokkien Mee

1) Deanna's Kitchen is a relatively new halal hawker store at Toa Payoh. Malay friends can visit the market and try this out. It is located at Toa Payoh West Market & Food Centre and is only open from Friday to Sunday. I went on a Saturday and the hawker centre was frigging packed full of people. I ordered the prawn noodles with clams which cost $6.50. 

A bowl of noodles with so MANY clams is totally worth it. The soup stock is sweet and flavorful with a tinge of peppery aftertaste but i feel like it is not as rich as Sumo Big Prawn Noodles. Nonetheless, the bowl of noodles was good and affordable overall with the amount of ingredients.

Opening Hours: Friday 10am - 8pm

2) Xie Kee Hokkien Mee is located at Bukit Timah Market & Food Centre. I have been wanting to try this particular store out since it is quite popular and is located along the way to school! So school has started and i have been busy with assignments. :( I had a saturday class last week so i  took the opportunity to go see if this store is open for lunch before heading to school. I was quite lucky and the store is open after the third time visiting this food centre. This food centre is always crowded but somehow i always manage to find a seat. 

The noodle that they use is the flat kind which different from other stores. I can definitely taste some wok hei in it but i feel like this was kind of just above average and lacking in taste. I wouldn't say it is extremely tasty but you can try it out if you're in the vicinity?

#LUNCHGOALS

1) Japanese Vegetable Curry rice. Not sure if the curry cube is vegan but i used only vegetables here. There's potatoes, baby carrots and corn, shiitake mushrooms and brown enoki mushrooms. Used japanese rice too. This is really easy to make. You cook the ingredients first, then put in water just enough to cover whatever there's inside. Put in the curry cube when the water is boiling and stir to make sure the cube melt into the water. Let it simmer for maybe 5- 10 minutes and stir occasionally.

2) Tomato based pasta with salmon. I cooked the salmon in balsamic sauce and basil. Best to cook the salmon in 5 minutes with medium heat to to maintain tenderness of meat. I then cook the enoki mushrooms and added the pasta sauce afterwards. I finally pour the sauce onto the plate of pasta.

3) Pesto pasta with cheese sausage. I have an extra sausage left from the breakfasts that i have been making. I cooked the enoki mushrooms, white button mushrooms and chopped cheese sausage in pesto sauce and then pour it onto the pasta. Pesto pasta is one of my fav food and western food stores outside rarely has this dish. I usually buy the pasta genovese sauce from fairprice.

4) Thai Green curry with rice. I have this pack of deSIAM, Thai Green Curry Paste sitting in my fridge for a very long time from a past purchase from iHerb. This requires coconut milk. I have been putting this off for a very long time cos lazy to buy. LOL. I finally bought it from sheng shiong, Ingredients here are baby carrots and corn, chicken and shiitake mushrooms. Firstly, you pour the curry pack into a pan and stir fry it until fragrant. Secondly, you put the chicken inside and cook until ready. Thirdly, you put the rest of the ingredients inside and pour the coconut milk in and also 1 cup of water. You can gauge how much water you need based on how many milk you're using. Lastly, let it cook for around 10 minutes and you're ready to serve. :) This particular brand of green curry boasts rich flavor and subtle spiciness. Worth a try. You can click on the above link and purchase.

Korean food at Toa Payoh #hawkerfare

I have explored the mini army stew in my previous post and i am now back to Man's Kitchen & Waker Chicken for more! Trying the Waker original chicken, kimchi fried rice and bibimbap. I only realised they had a 'tender' version of the chicken after my order came. :S The waker original chicken seems more like breast meat to me? If it is breast meat, it is quite nicely done. The chicken is not tough at all. The bibimbap however was quite disappointing. okay so it doesn't have much sauce cos bibimbap is like that. lol i really can't appreciate this kind of rice dish. Kimchi fried rice is served on a hot plate  but portion is really too little. I do not expect these kind of store in a coffeeshop to have restaurant standard but it is really nice to see people putting in effort and serve affordable korean food.
