Today’s Lunch… Golden City

Now, here’s a bit of disclosure about Golden City if I haven’t told you all this before. We are friends with the owners’ and their family. The nephew, Anthony, is a very dear friend of mine. I’ve known him since he was barely legal and ah, now he’s a mechanical engineer but still works at the restaurant at night because you know… family.

So we headed to lunch there today. And now I am so fricking full I’m going to go into a coma.

Now, what everyone calls Singapore Noodles isn’t really from Singapore but oh…. sooooo good. Curried rice noodles.

This is Spicy Salt Shrimp. Yes, there are eyes and legs but my “adopted” sister can deal. But oh, this is sooooooo good. Heh.

Ah, this is what I had for lunch. It’s a steamed kinda sweet-savoury steamed pork belly with preserved veggies. One of my favourite foods. And a very traditional dish which was apparently a shock to the older couple sitting next to us with their daughter-in-law. The grandfather was astonished and glad to see me eating it. *laughs* It is his brother’s favourite dish too and he often has to fight with his brother to get some. It is a hint of clove and anise with a sweet char siu taste to it. LOVE it.

Did I mention the food coma? That is happening in about ten to fifteen minutes.

    No, you certainly won’t be writing after THAT. Looks good, I’ll bet it smells great.
