Double Piggy Lunch

Having woken up at 6am to prepare for church duty one Sunday, I felt like having a meaty lunch when it got to around 2pm. The above plate of Char Siew & Sio Bak Rice fitted perfectly. While the sio bak could have been chopped into thicker chunks, it boasted a nice flavour and wasn't over salty. The char siew was a good balance between sweet and savoury, and had a chewy, crunchy texture which I much like. Must have been the proportion of meat, fat and tendon/cartilage.

A brown gravy that tasted like it was made from the drippings of roast meat and five spice was splashed over the meats and provided moore flavour.

I appreciate that the other components that made up this meal were also good. The soup for example was simple and tasty with soft cabbage, ginger and small pieces of pork ribs. The chilli paste was spicy and fragrant with dried shrimps (think XO sauce).  

To be honest, I actually was headed to Holland Drive Hawker Centre for lunch. Long time no eat there. But unfortunately, I saw this below sign.

Oh well. When one door closes, another opens! Moohaha.
