(Hua) Fong Kee Roasted Duck

If you are around Toa Payoh and you're hungry for some roasted meat rice (烧腊饭), like, char siew (叉烧), roasted meat (烧肉) or roasted duck (烧鸭), Fong Kee is the place to go.

The char siew is the dark brown type, with a little bit of fat in between the meat, so its very flavourful and tender. I love their roasted park too, especially their crispy skin on top.

The gravy that they pour on top of everything is heavenly. The perfect condiment to go with the rice and meat. Such a simple meal but so hearty and comforting!

CoCo's Chocolate Chip Muffins

I was inspired to make some muffins after watching this pathetic woman trying to sell muffins in a variety show on channel 8. This woman hates muffins, and yet she opens a stall selling muffins! Not surprisingly, she sucked and so needs help from professionals to save her business.

ANYWAY, carry-on... let's not waste precious brain cells on imbeciles. Like I said, I was inspired to make some muffins. So I found this chocolate chip muffin recipe on Usually I would not blog down recipes that didn't turn out well, so I guess this one made it. Haha..

Verdict: Very easy, very quick, very delicious. I complete everything (plus cleaning up) within an hour! Try it, it's fool-proof!

250g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Half-teaspoon bicarbonate soda
2 tablespoons best quality cocoa
175g caster sugar
150g chocolate chips (plus more for sprinkling later)
250ml milk
90ml vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 200C and fill a 12-bun muffin tray with paper cases.

2. Weigh out the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug (Why jug? Bowl also can lah~).

3. Mix both together (DO NOT over-do it. Just mix it up and leave it) – it will be a runny batter - then spoon into waiting muffin cases.

4. Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top then cook for 20 minutes or until the muffins are risen and springy.

Makes 12
