This packet of Prima Taste Ready Meal – Chicken Claypot Rice at NTUC Fairprice supermarket caught our when we were there recently. It has nice packaging and the important words: “Microwave Ready in 90 Seconds”. Always on the lookout for easy meals at home we bought a couple of packs to try.
The NTUC Fairprice frozen food section is a place we are not familiar with. But since the Singapore circuit breaker we try to limit our trips to the supermarket. We started to explore the frozen section at Fairprice. The CP Mexican Wings and Pacific West Cod Fingers were two of the items that we tried recently.
ZAC Meat Beef Lasagna was one of the items that we picked out of the frozen food section of Fairprice Finest when we were there recently. The frozen food section at supermarkets is always attractive with many kinds of food to choose from. Local cuisine to internation selections, but the question is : which frozen food to buy?
The best meal that we had (so far) this Chinese New Year period was at the popiah party at a friend’s place. The secret of a good homemade popiah? Lots of juicy ingredients prepared with passion, some special ingredients and Kway Guan Huat Joo Chiat popiah skins which our hosts insist on using year after year; even though they live on the other side of Singapore, in the West.
Looking for a nice simple place for a meal of Singapore? If local dishes like laksa and zi char suits your taste, then the New Teck Kee Chicken Rice restaurant in Rail Mall might be your kind of place. Chicken rice is their speciality but the restaurant serves a wider range of food than its name suggests. From basic zi char favourites like stir fry vegetables, shrimp rolls to Thai chicken feet. Free parking provides an added incentive to visit.
Encouraged by our modest success with our first attempt cooking with toaster oven (see Ep 1), we decided to look for some ideas on cooking with toaster ovens. We landed on a Cuisinart oven manual with some simple recipes. One of their recipes for cooking with their oven was five spice chicken wings. You can see the detailed instructions here. We took our inspiration from there but made some small modifications.
