​四季煲仔飯 Four Seasons Pot Rice @Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong

2016-12-09 23.54.04四季煲仔飯 Four Seasons Pot Rice was highly recommended by my cousin, and it was very near 美都餐室 Mido Cafe.

After a relaxing afternoon tea, we strolled to 四季煲仔飯 and discovered that a queue had already started forming just after 6pm. The queue moved quite quickly though, and we got our seats around 20 minutes later.

We got ourselves a 臘腸滑雞飯 Chinese Sausage and Chicken Claypot Rice (HK$53),鴨蛋蠔餅 Duck Egg Oyster Cake (HK$20 for 2 pieces), and 通菜 Kangkong with Fermented Beancurd (HK$40). Food arrived quite quickly too!

The 鴨蛋蠔餅 Duck Egg Oyster Cake had the aromatic duck egg flavour and there was a generous amount of oysters. The batter was quite light and crispy. Overall, it was not too oily, and we really enjoyed it!

The rice in the 臘腸滑雞飯 Claypot Rice was really fragrant and soft! Really quite awesome, but the charred bits would stick and were not as crispy as the one we had at 坤記 the previous night. The Chinese sausage was yummy too! The chicken was very tender. We really liked the claypot rice here!

The vegetables was a good way to balance out the meal, and as usual, fresh and delicious 🙂

坤記煲仔小菜 Kwan Kee Claypot Rice @Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong

While having porridge for lunch earlier, we shared table with a friendly local who highly recommended that we try out 坤記煲仔小菜 Kwan Kee Claypot Rice. We were going to meet Mr D for dinner and he too mentioned that he failed to walk in without reservations few weeks back for this eatery, because it was just oh-so-crowded.

These led us to walk back to make dinner reservations there, haha!

We managed to make reservations for 3 persons at 6pm in Mandarin with a rather grumpy lady. Do note that there might be time limit for eating (ours was till 7:30pm).

We ended up having the 招牌猪豬煲 Signature Pork Bone Soup (HK$208), a 鴛鴦腸煲仔飯 Preserved Sausage Claypot Rice (HK$75), and 蒜茸炒西蘭花 Fried Broccoli with Garlic (HK$60).

Malacca 2015 Day 1

2015-10-10 10.32.32-2We did a short getaway over the weekend to Malacca with my parents over the weekend.

Malacca has lots to offer but our last trip was more than 5 years ago. So we were quite lucky and thankful to have taken Luxury Coach because a guide was on board to share much about Malacca and its attractions when we were en route after Woodlands Checkout to Malacca. That helped to frame our expectations and refreshed some of our memories of the beautiful place.

While the speed of eating was definitely slower this time, we still managed to try a few things 😀

Hiang Ji Roasted Meat & Noodle House 享記燒臘麵家 @Toa Payoh

Claypot Rice

Claypot Rice

We were roaming around trying to find dinner at Toa Payoh Central, when we peeped through a corridor and there appeared to be a stretch of stalls hidden inside, so we thought that we should check it out!

The Chinatown Claypot Rice next to Hiang Ji was the most crowded, and there were some super powerful fans blasting at the tables, and thus our dinner was decided!

We ordered a Claypot Rice ($6), a platter of Roasted Duck, Roasted Pork and Char Siew ($14), and a plate of Kailan ($4) for a balanced meal 😛

A balanced meal

A balanced meal

The platter was the first to arrive, and we were most impressed by the char siew! It had a good combination of slightly charred meat and fats, and each piece was melting in our mouths… It was divine! The roasted pork was full of crackling crispiness but a bit too fat for my liking, and the roasted duck was just average.

The Kailan was quite oily, and came with lots if deep fried lard 😮 Not very healthy I guess.

We were told that we would need to wait for about 20 minutes for the claypot rice, and it was indeed worth the wait! The salty smell from the salted fish and Chinese sausage made our mouths water; coupled with the crispy rice stuck to the claypot (锅巴), and the amount of oil and dark soy sauce at your own control, the claypot rice was really very delicious! The chicken pieces were quite tender as well, and there were salted egg pieces, which complemented the rice very well! This was such an unexpected find!

The only down side was that they had ran out of bottled water, so we were really quite thirsty after the meal… Which gave us an excuse to look for a cafe…

Note that wet tissue is $0.30 per piece.
