Laksa Hot Pot

The other day, I got a laksa hot pot soup base from the cashier of supermarket. I wanted to have nice hot pot for a long time. And I have never tried laksa flavor before.

This is the soup base I got. It has 2 parts: powder and paste.

Meat and vegetables are the main ingredients for hot pot.

First, I wash and cut vegetables and meat. Then follow the instruction to get soup base ready.

Meat in first, then the seafood part, vegetables at last. But vegetables like potato, sweet potato and shiitake mushroom can be put in earlier.

Brazil Churrasco

Yesterday was my husband’s birthday.  He wanted to try this restaurant since half year ago. Can you IMAGINE???

Because it was quite close to Valentine’s day. Restaurants are very difficult to reserve especially those good ones. Last year, I tried to make a reservation in an Italian restaurant and failed. I had no choice but to change to another one. This year, I got better prepared and revered this restaurant almost 12 days before.

It’s located @ sixth avenue. Quite near to MRT station and easy to find.

What did we have in this Brazilian Restaurant? MEAT! Or to be more precisely, all kinds of MEAT!!!

WE chose full dinner, which costs S$52 per person. It’s kind of like a buffet, but not same as the regular buffet that we grab a plate and take whatever food we like.

Staffs are friendly. As we were just seated, some sauce and small bread, Which I believe is Brazilian  cheese bread were served. Sauce on the left contains onion, bell pepper and vinegar, I think. As it tastes very sour. Sauce on the right is mint sauce.

Oh, and also the nice creamy mushroom soup.

Drink is not included, so we have to make an extra order of drinks.

And here is what the birthday boy chose:

Caipirinha. A kind of cocktail. Actually, we are not the alcohol type. To me, it tastes bitter and strong. Beer is also strong to me. So… It does taste special.

And the price is S$14.7

There is a salad bar in the restaurant. I didn’t take the picture.

I found this pic online

My husband took a big plate of salad from there. Fried mushroom is really nice. We kind of regret having so much salad, because the meat afterwards really really WOW!

Chiefs bring meat from the kitchen and approach to the table, telling us what meat that is and asking whether we would like some.

They just carry that big skewer and sharp knife walking around to each table. If you want some, they will cut 1 or 2 slices for you into your plate. Then they carry that giant skewer back to the kitchen to roast the meat again. Everytime, they just walk out with the fresh roasted meat. Whole restaurant is full of sizzling and fragrance.

(I really put a lot of efforts when writing this blog, because I need to put heavy mosaic to wipe out my husband. Yes, that mosaic is my husband.)

They have beef, lamb, chicken, duck, ham. And surprisingly, they have chicken heart and chicken liver. So juicy, tender and you may need to drink a lot of water. πŸ™‚

We almost full after the first round and tasting everything. For the second round, they also bring something new. Fish really looks like tofu.

And My husband’s favourite pineapple!

It’s really good to have some sweet and sourish pineapple after so much meat.

It’s really a meat lover’s heaven. And also a good place to go with friends and family. The experience is new to us and my husband is very happy with his birthday dinner there.

Staffs are very nice. They also tell us to have lamb with mint sauce. Very warm-hearted.

Probably for the next days, we don’t need to have any meat. πŸ™‚

 

Ribeye Steak

My husband wanted to have steak for dinner. So we went to supermarket to buy a ribeye steak and some sausage.

1. Sprinkle salt and black pepper over the steak.

2. Heat skillet on stove. Add a little olive oil.

3. When the skillet is smoking hot, put the steak in. You will hear the sizzling.

4. For 2-3 mins, the down side will becom brownish. Turn over to fry the other side.

5. Cut in a little butter. Put in 2 cloves garlic and some thyme.

6. Use a spoon to pour melted butter over the steak. Let the steak stand to fry the edge.

Place the steak into a plate. 

Use the same skillet ( no need to wash it) to fry sausage.


Serve with some boiled broccoli.

The steak is very tender and juicy.

Stir Fry Pork With Ladyfinger


Actually, I didn’t expect this dish will taste so good. And it’s very simple.

1. Put ladyfingers in boiling water for 2 minutes. Then take them out, remove two ends off and cut them into small pieces.

2. Cut pork into thin slice. Heat some oil in the pan. Stir fry pork till it gets a little golden brown.

3. Add in ladyfinger, a little light soy sauce and salt. Quick stir fry for another minute or two. And it’s done.


As to pork, I recommend pork belly, because it contains fat, which makes it taste better.
