Weekend eats: BBQ & homemade wantons

18 Aug

Yes, I’ve been MIA lately. Life just got in the way, and I found myself not being able to keep up with posting. Meals below are from a couple of weekends ago.

Saturday

Breakfast


Rude Health The Ultimate Muesli with peach & blackberries in Sojade soy yogurt

Lunch


Grilled mackerel and broccoli (leftovers from Union Market)

Dinner

Went to friends’ place for a bbq (hopefully not the last of the year!), and was too busy pigging out to take pictures. I ate a lot of ribs, chicken wings, beef (soo beautifully marinaded) and a bunch of Vietnamese salads prepared by J. And finished off with some cake. What’s a party without cake?

Sunday

Breakfast


Banana, papaya & nectarine

Lunch




We had some people over for lunch for a wanton-making party.  There was also an attempt to make the pork miso udon from Koya, but we were too stuffed to try the udon. I love impromptu feasts!

– Homemade wantons
– Veggies: leek & peas, baby snaps & broccoli with black sesame
– Roast duck, char siew, siew yoke, yap pun tofu (new discovery: yum!), takeaway from Gold Mine
– Dessert: homemade lemon drizzle cake (made by a guest, not me), cherries

Spicy night at Bar Shu

15 Jul

Breakfast


Rude Health The Granola with Greek-style yogurt, banana, strawberries & blueberries (and Elle magazine)

Lunch


Tuna nicoise salad and tomato soup from Pret a Manger

Mid-afternoon


Jazz apple, orange, strawberries, blueberries & Rainier cherries (my new favourite)

Dinner





We stuffed ourselves good with this dinner. Five dishes for two girls seems rather excessive, but when the menu is so extensive, it’s so hard to pick. My favourites were the jellyfish and aubergine. What a fantastic sauce the aubergine was in!

– Jellyfish in vinegar
– Sweet potato noodles with offal
– Dry fried green beans
– Stir fried chicken with shitake mushroom in stone pot
– Aubergine
– To drink: lychee with aloe vera
