One at Annie 1


That's lunch for one at Annie 1. I always eat solo. I am a loner and I do fine eating or doing anything by myself.

In fact I have no qualms going to the movies on my own too but I admit that it's lots more fun when my brother comes along.

But well, we don't work near each other, so it's always a solo lunch for me. As you will notice, I have been going too easy on the carbs. Almost everyday I eat carbs. Haiz....

This is the Char Siew Fan. I had this after coming back from a meeting. Bah! I hate meetings. So this meal was like a soothing balm to me.


All this time, I have been sticking to the same old same old at Annie 1. So I decided to try some new stuff on the menu. Like this Spicy Pork Trotter Rice.


This meal comes with rice, vegetables and a fried egg. 


The trotters are quite meaty with some fats and I thought it was quite nice.

My new (current) favorite is the Pork Noodle Soup. I like it with kuay teow.


In spite of them supplying me with cili padi, I had to have the pickled green chilies as well. This time round, the chee yau char came in small cubes. Nice.


Then a few days later I had the Hakka Mee.


I thought it was very nice.


But I felt that the serving is small for me. So the next time, this happened.


Notice the difference? I kar liew lah.


heh..heh..heh.... 


That's a lot better. I know. I eat a lot. In fact I eat too much. One aunty from whom I used to tapau fried noodles remarked that I have a good appetite. Then she told me that to be able to eat is a blessing. Well, I am so blessed then. Hah..hah...

  3. My mother-in-law is always looking for pork trotters...and now (thanks to you) I know where to take her. I hope this is not like a special weekday's lunch menu but is on the menu for all days. I love pork noodles too but they must come with porky parts like intestines and liver for me...erm, this one don't have, right? ;)

    1. The pork trotters is on the menu. In fact you can even order it as a side dish. I hope the trotters here meet your MIL's standards. Unfortunately, the pork noodles here come with very scant liver and no intestines :(

  12. Everything looks so good, Phong Hong! Actually, I like eating solo as well...I can eat at the pace I want to which usually is slower than others'. I like to take my time and savor every bite! I love the Trotters, nice and meaty and the sauce looks so good!
