More piggy

Pin It

I was hanging out with Tigger this afternoon when he asked me to join the family for dinner.  Due to horrendous traffic conditions in a particular part of town, we decided to change plans and go to Fook Lam Moon (福臨門) instead.  Can't really go wrong here...

Deep-fried frogs' legs (椒鹽田雞腿) - Mrs. Tigger's favorite, and something that she (and the rest of us) quickly devoured when starving…

Roast suckling pig (脆皮乳豬) - Tigger's favorite.  My second favorite.  It's hard not to like this for the crispy, wafer-thin crackling.  Gnawing on one of the tiny legs was also very enjoyable.

The snake soup (菊花燴蛇羹) wasn't as good as I remembered.  It seemed pretty clear and somehow lacking in ingredients.  Once you add in the coriander, shredded kaffir lime leaves and chrysanthemum petals, you end up with a very fragrant bowl.

Stir-fried garoupa fillets (油泡石斑球) - I never really liked this dish, since it's kind of a waste of fish.

Braised tofu with mushrooms and choy sum (紅燒豆腐) - I was pretty full already, so didn't really touch the tofu… only the veggies on the side.

Fried glutinous rice with preserved meats (生炒糯米飯) - I always get excited when it's the season for this.  I loooove this but could only manage one bowl tonight.  I should just get this to go on my way home…

Tigger's got a sweet tooth, so we finished with some coconut jelly (椰汁糕).

2000 Réserve de la Comtesse - showing coffee, tobacco, earthy and minty notes.  Drinking pretty well.
