Something Peranakan

It must be a surprise, but the dishes we proposed some felt it too hard to come up with it. But everyone did come with something. We were blessed with so much food. No, none went to waste, leftover was 'packed' and people brought back other people's food that they liked.

Here's what we had. AYeo made Sambal Timun. (Sambal Cucumbers).

Es-Ng made the Nyonya Curry Chicken.

I made Babi Ponteh. (I should have prepared it overnight, the taste has not gone into the meat yet, and it was my first try. Not very good. :-p)

Ab-Sim made us Otah.

Sis made Fried Mee Siam.

SatuKosong made us Chap Chye.

Sis and I experimented food again. We made Cincaluk Eggs.
We had it a few days ago and tried to re-create it, but it was too too salty. We did not even add salt. Think we need to wash the cincaluk off some of its saltiness first.

Pete and Liz brought us Yellow rice.

It's not peranakan but Indonesian ;-)
The lodeh that goes with the yellow rice.

More of the condiments. Hard work!

GYeo brought loaves of bread.

AntQ made skewered eggs and fish/meat balls.

PChin made agar agar. This is Chrysanthemum flavour.

And Sarsi flavour too.

LyChin bought us these cute chewy buns with different types of toppings.

Think there are some other food, where I forgot to snap the photos. The photos above are also dark for some. So sorry about it.

Well, it was a fun eat in day. Wonder when will we do it again. ;-)

I've been visiting your blog for quite some time, really like your photos. I noticed you lunch around NUS/NUH quite often. There's a new stall(beside the chinese noodles stall) at NUS Science canteen selling Chinese steamed soup and steamed rice. It just opened this week and the queue was already snaking after 12pm. Tried the lotus root soup and corn/carrot soup, it's not bad at all. Thought you might be interested to try :)

anon: ya, she did get it easy :-)

sw: nothing else? hehe..

teambsg: Melaka and Penang got so much Nyonya food. Think the ones in Melaka's the best lah.. KL, i dunno lah...

camemberu: think there was around 20 or 21 people. it was fun.

angie: thanks for your visits. ya ya, I know. guess what? colleagues and I ate at the new store today! think it has a long queue because the Chinese Food stall's closed.

We realise the Jap stall has vanished too. wonder what cuisine will be taking over.

Greetings from Canada


The skewered eggs and fish/meat balls are most interesting like a kebab.
