I haven’t done a food weekend in ages! Yikes! Here goes!
On Friday, a couple of friends and I were meeting for drinks at our usual hangout place at Holland Village. Before I left, I was freaking hungry so I decided to make a couple of half boiled eggs to keep me filled up until I reached there. I did the usual, but this time, I managed to crack the eggs without breaking the yolk! It was a very rare occurrence, so of course, I had to document it!
See! The yolks are all intact!
The black sauce consists of sesame oil, olive oil, tabasco sauce, sweet soya sauce, a small pinch of salt and a generous scattering of pepper. A bit elaborate for something so simple, but it gives a lot of taste to the otherwise bland mixture!
This burger would feature in my ‘list of things to eat at my last meal’. It’s called the pit burger and is a speciality of the place we frequent for drinks. It has the most tender, juicy and succulent beef patty which is made by the chefs themselves! The patty is topped by a huge portobello mushroom and a slice of cheese, so when the cheese melts, it becomes a lethal combo of “I WANT MORE OF THIS!”
Pity I didn’t put in more effort into taking a better picture of this burger because friends and I were caught up in serious banter, so I was a bit distracted.
I had the chance to fix my own lunch on Sunday and thank god I was cooking for myself only because anyone else eating this would have spat this right back at my face!
I used wheat spaghetti instead of the usual spaghetti, and little did I know that it absorbs more salt than regular spaghetti does. So basically I had very salty pasta which tasted like I was putting a big lump of salt in my mouth everytime I took a mouthful of spaghetti.
It was a lesson learnt nonetheless because next time I would be careful enough to add as little salt as I can when I cook wheat pasta next time.
Aaaand here are some overdue pictures which I was lazy to upload earlier.
Sichuan Spicy Fish Soup and Xiao Long Bao from this place again! It was an impromptu supper decision on Labour’s Day. My friends and I were feeling a bit spontaneous, so we headed down to Swee Choon in the dead of the night just to fill ourselves up with good dim sum!
This was for my mother’s birthday. It fell on a weekday and we did not have time to cook or prepare anything, so basically we just bought pizza and fried chicken and had a simple celebration.
