Oh yay! My thesis is now done and submitted. Nothing more I can do now but to entrust it into the hands of God. Now it's down to doing up a poster for poster day.
So while there are many memorable experiences (The Grandeur of Wines, Din Tai Fung Xiao Long Bao Workshop, Ultimate Parker in Asia Grand Tasting etc) over the last few weeks to blog about, these tend to come with many photos and would require more time to write on. Stay tune for these!
For a simpler and no less palette-pleasing lunch post, I now present a delicious porky, piggy lunch.
I can imagine this plate of Char Siew & Siew Yok Rice ($2.70 after addition of extra rice) being the perfect food for hard-labourers. So after a tiring period over the thesis, this definitely was a small reward to re-fuel the body. The Char Siew was a good balance of sweet and porky flavours with the meat being neither too fatty nor overly lean. The Siew Yok had delicious alternating layers of meat and bits of fat, rendering it juicy. The dark sauce drizzled over the roasted meats was sweet and savoury- goes very well with rice!
In addition to roasted meats, they also have Chinese-style soups. I tried the Szechuan Vegetables and Pork Ribs Soup ($2) and found its flavours comforting. The preserved vegetables imparted their characteristic salty flavour and the tomato added tartness to the pork rib-based soup.
Twas a hearty, satisfying lunch of pork done 3 ways and without being unbearably greasy. Time to work on that poster.

Chew On This: Totally unrelated to food but in a lunch conversation, the topic of double confirmation in Singlish was discussed- Can can; more better. Definitely uniquely Singapore! Haha.
