♠️ [Kim Keat Claypot Hokkien Mee]
[•] I was alerted to Kim Keat’s Claypot Hokkien Mee by several of my colleagues a while back and being quite a fan of pretty much anything claypot-based, this was one venue I knew I had to visit.
[•] For starters, I’ll say that Kim Keat’s Hokkien Mee isn’t the average Hokkien Mee fare that you might be used to having from your go-to coffee shop/Kopitiam of choice. Aside from the fact that it is cooked in a claypot and with charcoal (which produces the very distinctive “wok-hei” scent), the pot is served up with generous heaps of pork lard, 🍳, 🦑, 🍤, clams, bean sprouts and slices of pork belly.
[•] I also liked the fact that Kim Keat’s variation of the dish is “communal” and meant for sharing. The smallest size on offer - the $10 pot - can easily feed two and possibly even three people. Value for money in that respect, as well.
[•] The dish didn’t disappoint in terms of taste either. The noodles are not as “wet” as your typical fare but still had enough of the flavourful gravy to keep you coming back for more. The bean sprouts and pork lard gave the dish good crunch while the dried shrimp-flavoured sambal 🌶 gave it the all-important spice kick. The only thing that didn’t cut it for me was the pork belly slices, which weren’t particularly tasty/crispy and didn’t contribute anything extra to the dish. All things considered, I think a 4.7/5 on the neshrating is merited.
Cherry Chia Jam. I had some pretty tasteless cherries so I made them into jam. Nothing that some maple syrup can't solve, when it comes to sweets 😁 ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I'm having another working weekend which means it's time to gorge my face with snacks 🤣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Are you the "eat when stressed" type of person or the "I don't need to eat till I'm done with all these work" type? ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I'm most certainly the former 😅😭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Happy Sunday to you all. Hope you have a GREAT Sunday! ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

"It is our duty to give meaning to the life of future generations by sharing our knowledge and experience; by teaching an appreciation of work well done and a respect for nature, the source of all life; by encouraging the young to venture off the beaten path and avoid complacency by challenging their emotions." -PAUL BOCUSE 1926-2018 🙏🏻 #paulbocuse
We are very fortunate that we can collect eggs from our chickens. But then it got us thinking...You only need a very small patch of land to raise a chicken. Why don't more people do it? 🤔
It teaches you patience, appreciation and love of nature. Chickens also make great pets. Maybe we should start selling chicks? 😉
