As you know, my food prep activities came to a grinding halt last year. Tsk..tsk... I just let go and let myself free fall and did or rather ate out as I pleased.
It takes discipline and a certain amount of conviction to spend a few hours in the kitchen on Sundays to make (in my case) at least 4 lunches. Dinner is always a simple affair - soups (which I prepare a big pot) or steamed vegetables and meat.
I stopped lunch meal prep (no point forcing myself) and ate out for the most of 2021.
If it's not at the chap fan shop, lunch is at The Starling food court.
Pho Real is still going strong (8 stalls have since shut down with no replacements at the time of writing) and the quality of their Hanoi Beef Pho is still as good as the first day they started.
My lunch go to is always 282 Mixed Rice which is situated along the same row as Public Bank and TK Bakery.
Among the standouts for me is the sweet and sour pork and Thai style beancurd. I always cannot resist those two.
As for vegetables, I always prefer the green leafy ones. But I also love ladies fingers, brinjals, beansprouts and bittergourd.
Another recent favorite dish is the nam yue fried chicken. It is so very tasty! They also have the pork version but somehow it is not as good.
Of course, another favorite haunt of mine is Annie 1. Now, whenever I crave for pork noodles, I have it at Annie 1.
