Katong Laksa, like chicken rice and Char Kway Teow, is one of the dishes that almost all Singaporeans know. So after eating it for so many years we decided to find out how it is made. (Something we discovered: the coconut milk should simmer gently as boiling it too harshly causes the soup to thicken up really fast). Aside from that, I would say that we manage to replicate the familiar taste of Katong Laksa.
Mother’s Day — also known as the day everybody stresses about to their friends but never really getting round to doing much — calls for some tender loving attention. The one thing every mother would love nothing more, would be to settle down on a Sunday afternoon with her kids, and dig into a buttery cake with a comforting cup of tea. And no, you’re not allowed to takeaway the cake from P.S Cafe.
We made the choice of using simple tomato sauce to compliment the chorizo sausage that we got for this – which was rather delish. If you are to try, BE VERY DELICATE with the ravioli, and that when cooking them the do not break, so as to keep the meaty taste within these happy pouches. (We broke a couple and those were rather diluted, sadly)

Here’s one for all the sweet tooths out there, a classic.
Warm muffins, sassy savory bacon and loose runny yolk. Don’t forget the freshly made hollandaise sauce, creamy butter soaked with more eggy goodness. We had the idea of making Eggs Ben from scratch – muffin to sauce. Many eggs were killed in the making.
The Gangnam craze may well be over in 2013, but there’s no harm in celebrating the weekend with true blue Kimchi making at home.
