13 Aug 2011 - Pepper Lunch's curry rice set

Apologies that this came 2 weeks late.

She wanted to have the ribeye steak, while he saw the refreshed menu of curry rice and opted to have the pepper steak variant. (curry rice, pepper steak, huh?)

The curry rice set came with a complimentary egg, and curry in an Aladdin-style lamp. Spicy enough to have him perspire. Also, the portion of rice seemed a little huge. He had to struggle a little to finish it all.

09 August 2011 - Dian Xiao Er

Slept in until around 1pm, had some porridge at home before heading out. She's not one who can stay at home. In contrast, he's probably someone who can be bred in captivity.

Had always wanted to try Dian Xiao Er, but it always had long queues. This time, they went around 4pm and it was relatively empty.

Menu in the form of some Chinese martial arts manual...

Had the "Family" set for 2, $38++. That consisted of rice, winter melon soup, roast duck with angelica sauce, DongPo pork and stir-fried kailan.

The duck leg was probably rid of fats from the roasting, and the savoury herbal sauce went well with the meat. This was the first time he's eating duck this way.

They opted for DongPo pork over Mongolian pork ribs. Check out the fats... this actually helped soothe this throat somehow.

All in...

07 August 2011 - Kiseki

He was feeling lethargic due to the stalemate with throat/nasal infection, and also sustained a wisdom tooth extraction in midweek. But she said that to recover, one should act as if he weren't sick. So they ended up going for her shopping trots.

*few hours flew by*

Then came the dilemma, to eat in town or to have beef noodles at Lai Lai. As they walked on pondering, it was decided that they eat at Kiseki since they had crab and sashimi cravings. Prices went up by $2++ to $34.80++

Crab legs and mussels. He had plenty of snow crab legs and flower crabs. Sweet stuff, but probably bad for the wound. Ate with the right side of his jaw... probably took 2 times the time to eat.

Sweet sweet flower crabs

Sashimi and skewers of pork, curry sausages and prawns. The prawns were covered in salt and barbecued, perfect to awaken the taste buds of the sick. They also had skewers of chicken liver that were slathered with yakitori sauce, good stuff.

Baked shellfish - mussels and scallops covered in mentaiko.

More skewers, just can't stop... yet.

Fried food, polished off by her

Savoury seafood soup, never fails to whet appetite.

And finally some pretty looking dessert. These were very evil though, chock full of thick chocolate, no hollow spaces.

If you're wondering about the lack of pictures, it was because he had his hands full of crab...
