Sorry, no wine in here but I had one of the most unforgettable lunches in a while last Sunday. And there was no meat involved. Surprise. Surprise.
Kacang Phool ($3.50) from this stall over at Bedok Corner Food Centre was delish! Essentially a stew of ground fava beans (aka broad beans) and spices, it was simple and so easy to enjoy. The mix pot of flavours were nutty, earthy, spicy and savoury. Chopped raw onions, green chilis and tomatoes were sprinkled over and imparted texture and a freshness that helped cut through the rich stew. A small lime was also provided for that zippy shot of acidity and citrus fragrance. :)
The Kacang Phool was served with a well-toasted baguette, that spotted a crusty crust with soft innards, for dipping. The smell and taste of the baguette brought to mind old-school bakeries. Yums indeed.
The other component of the Kacang Phool was the sunny-side-up. Unfortunately, it was a little too cooked for my liking and had only a small portion of the yolk that was still runny. Imagine a runnier yolk that one could break and mix into the Kacang Phool....
I'll be back for that. No hooves about it.
