Hello everyone! Pardon the nearly 2-month hiatus! The last few weeks has been crazy busy and exhausting, starting with me being down with a cold, and subsequently Matilda and baby Meredith, too. Even had to take Meredith to KK Emergency for blood test and urine test because her fever refused to go away! Those with kids would know how stressful and tiring it is to take care of young children who are sick (read: crying, irritable, cranky, angels-who-suddenly-become-demons).
Anyway, here’s my long overdue update on our 10-day trial with Kim’s Kitchen tingkat. I forgot to take pics for 2 nights,so here’s the remaining meals for 4 days.
Many of you are interested to know whether we continued with Kim’s Kitchen after the trial.
Reason: We didn’t feel that the cooking was to our tastebuds. Also, over the trial period, there were a couple of dud meals (the food was rather inedible). And one thing I didn’t like was the frequent usage of processed meats.
- “Lo Han Chye” vegetables
- Bittergourd — super hard and bitter, tasted barely blanched and mixed in tasteless gravy
- Sesame oil chicken
- Potatoes with minced meat
- Stir fried veggie with ikan bilis
- Spicy & sour fish
- Fried wonton
- Braised chicken & egg
- Hakka long bean — Nice and tasty. Interesting how they fry long bean with peanut and chai poh.
- 5 spices meat cubes
- Fried ngoh hiang
- Luncheon meat cubes in sweet-sour sauce — my pet peeve with Kim’s Kitchen is their use of this artificial-looking sweet-sour sauce that tastes as awful as it looks!
- Fried fish/cuttlefish? cutlet
- Curry yong tau foo
- “Unique Sauce” chicken — the meat is a bit dry, despite the sauce.
On the whole, Kim’s Kitchen is passable — not superb, but neither is it the worst tingkat we’ve tried. However, hubby wasn’t very keen to continue with them. Hence, I decided to try out another caterer that’s being used by sis-in-law — Hong Choo Catering. Stay tuned for my post on Hong Choo’s tingkat!
