After blogging about some typical dishes we eat at home, I received requests to put up the recipe for this tofu dish. It’s actually very simple, and I’m sure many Chinese Singaporean families have their own version of it. It’s perfect with plain jasmine rice. Here’s the recipe:

While queueing at the supermarket check-out counter the other day, this colorful box caught my eye. Another one of those limited edition Kit Kats from Japan! I knew I had to have it.
Years ago, The RiceTable started out promisingly. The first to offer rijsttafel at affordable prices, word quickly got around and business boomed. At S$19.80++ for dinner, one gets an all-you-can-eat spread of 20 dishes, placed on warmers at your table. You have to admit, it’s a tempting deal. Plus, the food wasn’t half bad.

Total damage: S$13.50. Satisfaction: [...]
