Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice @ Golden Mile Food Centre, Singapore

We arrived around 3pm at our accommodation, Five Stones Hostel in Singapore on day 1. Since Golden Mile Food Centre is very near to Five Stones Hostel, I have planned to have our late lunch there. It’s about 6-8 minutes walk.

The four of us ordered chicken rice from Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice shop but we only ordered 3 plates of chicken rice. I shared a plate of chicken rice with my sister because in less than 4 hours, we were going to have a posh dinner at a nice place {Hint}.

Pizzeria Mozza @ Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

I recently went for a short trip to Singapore and Marina Bay Sands was one of my must visit destination. When I found out about Celebrity Chef Restaurants at The Shoppes (the shopping mall at Marina Bay Sands), I knew I must give one of the restaurant a visit. I choose Pizzeria Mozza, a pizza restaurant by Mario Batali. Mario Batali also run Osteria Mozza (located just beside Pizzeria Mozza) which was my initial choice but decided to give Pizzeria Mozza a go instead.

I made a reservation prior to my trip and am really glad I made the right choice because the place was so jam-packed. My reservation was for 7.15pm but we arrived early (7pm) and was quickly usher to our table of 4. I would advice you to make reservation if you’re going to dine here.

Delicious Fresh Corn Soup

It took me nearly 10 months to finally have all the stars align for me to try this recipe *chuckles. I knew I wanted to make fresh corn soup the moment David Lebovitz published the recipe because I’m a HUGE fan of corns. Gimme corn on the cob or corns in cup smeared with melted butter and salt any day and I’ll gladly eat them.

Two weeks back my sister managed to scored some really cheap corn on the cobs for like about RM0.75 each at this morning market at Chi Liung, Klang. I’ve made corn fried rice with it as well. Well that will be another story for another day. Right now let’s concentrate on this delicious fresh corn soup which is pretty easy to cook.

Braised Chicken With Mushroom Hot Pot

I cook for my lunch on weekdays for more than 6 months now. Yes, I seldom eat out. One thing is it’s healthier, it’s also cheaper and I can embark on my love for cooking almost daily. I usually prepare the food the night before and I just need to heat it up when it’s time to feed myself. I usually plan my 5 days meals on weekend and I go grocery shopping on weekend too and get what I want for the whole 5 days. And when I encounter roadblocks on what to cook, I look for inspiration everywhere. This time this inspiration come from a box of Hokto mushroom which come with 2 recipes to try. This braised chicken with mushroom hot pot is one of them. It’s called hot pot I guess from the claypot use (hot pot can also mean steamboat but no in this recipe).

This recipe is suppose to be cooked in a claypot but I don’t have one that is suitable (either too large or too small), so I used an enamel pot. The broth is full of aromatic ginger which I love tremendously and if you’re a fan of ginger, this recipe is for you! Seriously I can’t stop gulping down the broth. 😛

Pan Fried Turmeric & Paprika Salmon

This week, let’s continue with my love for turmeric and paprika. I’ve always like turmeric and paprika and the reason why I’ve been utilizing them more than usual is because my sis and dad both bought an extra bottle each due to miscommunication. Hehe. Since turmeric can reduce cancer risk and paprika is full of anti-oxidant, there are no harm in adding them in my regular cooking. Tsk, I’ll be trying out turmeric powder with my dog too.

I told you before I got tired of the usual pan fry salmon. That’s how I came up with this steamed salmon with mushrooms recipe. And now for this version, I decided to add turmeric and paprika to the salmon and pan fry it. Just a little twist to an otherwise simple dish. Hope you like it.

So yes, the end result were good and here I am. :)
