Vegetarian Pan Mee, hand made flour noodle with spinach and vegetarian ham, in a hearty, slightly oily broth.

Meaty Pan Mee, with salted dried anchovies on top. It’s in a block because it was takeaway from a plastic container.

Dried chilli paste, to go with the Pan Mee.

Fried Beancurd Skin. Supremely oily.

_MG_2231

Fried Fish Cake, served with a thick sweet chilli sauce. I dipped my beancurd skins in it. Yum.

Eve and her after-school meal. Micky D represent. They have twisty fries here.

They brought me back an Oreo McFlurry. Which is cool, because I was thinking about ice-cream.

Woo. Dinner time.

Restaurant Teow Chew Porridge. Pretty wide selection of side dishes.

_MG_2255

Stir-fried spinach with garlic and chilli.

_MG_2262

Potatoes with minced meat, cooked with black sauce, soya sauce and sugar.

_MG_2265

Stir-fried long green beans with minced meat.

_MG_2269

Salted vegetables, a common accompaniment to porridge. Asian porridge is made by cooking rice in a higher water ratio than usual, without salt. Thus, ham choi is a perfect side dish.

_MG_2267

Hard boiled eggs, drizzled with thick soya sauce.

_MG_2270

Fried semi-firm tofu, drenched with thick soya sauce.

_MG_2272

Fu Chuk, sugary soya bean milk with barley. It can be both a dessert and a warm drink.

_MG_2275

I had porridge.

_MG_2277

Others had rice with soya sauce.

_MG_2284

Salted dried turnip omelette. Seeing a trend with the salt yet?

_MG_2279

Fishcake wrapped with egg. A new menu item, on the house.

_MG_2282

Steamed minced meat with salted dried turnip. I used to love it when my mum made this. But…. now I’m a vegosaurus.

Zai Jian (goodbye) everybody.
