4 Jul 2021 – From Chicken Rice To A Burger
Thu: have lived in this area for 2+decades and it is the first time tasting this famous yummy DeliciousBonelessChickenRice@KatongShoppingCentre – a perfect way to eat chicken if you do not like bones in them! I think it is good, Clement also still likes, but this is not his first time here. Katong chicken rice hawker hunk – Tiktok’s newest obsession. And no, I did not see him dancing live in front of the stall, so will have to return for another visit. Tkx for dinner at Jo’s. https://danielfooddiary.com/2020/06/03/deliciousbonelesschickenrice/
Fri: TGIF – all morning for more tests etc, taking time to chill in the cool shady courtyard in-between tests @SGH. Picked up tarts @PâtisserieCLÉ/PayerLaberRd for tonight’s steak dinner@Theresa&ChengJ. Testing out their popular OrhBlanc, a fusion of OrhNee/YamPaste&FrenchMontBlanc which is lighter than the traditional OrhNee, quite fresh and not too sweet, bro Leslie liked it and I quite liked it too!
Sat: tkx to AudreyW for lunch @OldChangKee. An afternoon @CC for Audrey&April to buy 2pairs of Chaco – made fruit-cocktail-salad to share.
Sun: Happy 4th – has it really been 16yrs ago today I was into Day66 in PA/USA hiking the AT-ThruHike in 2005? Also the day when Glenda/HiHills, JohnW/MoFo, JimH/Alleghany joined our CandyAssGroup (MissWiggy, T2, Gadget & I, TigerLil) to hike with us and up to today we have remained friends – blessed to have crossed paths with such a wonderful group of ppl I truly cherish.
Tkx to Leo for setting up a new laptop from Michael and for getting me to try out new yummy foods at a 24/7 place, TheHainanStory:ChapterOne/HotelBoss/JalanSultan. Tasted their Laksa, Uncle Robert Pork Cutlet, Yuan Yang Satay with Peanut + PineappleSauce, Durian, OrhNee SwissRoll for dessert. Will be back to try more dishes.
Antoinette, a patisserie by PangKokKeong, now no longer, but his swiss rolls here now are delicious. Do miss these cakes from Antoinette: La Rose – grand cru chocolate mousse, exotic caramel, almond nougatine, cocoa sponge, grand marnier, dark chocolate Chantilly. The White Swan – chantilly cream exterior is light and fluffy cheese mousse layered with brown butter sponge. Chloe – Yuzu cremeux, white chocolate vanilla mousse, almond stable and a light sponge cake. Pix from Feb2019 when I last had these!
The mosaic wall is quite amazing and so is the idea with using newspaper to wrap the food, bring back memories of fish&chips in Dublin/Ireland student days!
Always such fun with be in Leo’s company as he, too, likes gallivanting about like I do, especially when I am not familiar here in the JalanBesar area – some interesting buildings on the way.
Met with Clement in Chinatown and he too is another one who likes to gallivant like us! To celebrate the 4th in a USA style, picked up a Carl’s Jr burger@Funan to go heading for the bus stop by Fullerton – finally a shot of Chihuly in the dark!
