Sakae Welcome The World 2010

Yesterday, 21st June 2010, Sakae Sushi has organised a one-day carnival event at Sakae Sushi building located at 28 Tai Seng Street. During the event, we also get a chance to see Sakae Sushi’s latest “Power Pro Bento” set before it is officially being launch in their restaurants in Singapore.

The “Sakae Welcomes the World 2010” event will be held at the Sakae’s new Tai Seng Headquarters with Mr Teo Ser Luck (Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports) gracing the event as the Guest-of-Honour. Sakae also invited over 200 students from Red Swastika Primary School to participate in a day of fun with sports with the Singapore Sports Council’s roving sports truck.

Although it was kind of a cloudy/rainy Monday noon, but the kids, parents and most of the organisers are enjoying themselves with those exciting mini games such as Table-tennis, Handball, Basketballs, Football and etc. The aim of this event is to promote healthy eating and an active lifestyle.

This is the “Power Pro Bento” set @ S$22.90 which is launched during yesterday event to tie in with the upcoming Youth Olympic Games. This bento set consists of protein rich ingredients that help to increase strength, muscle development and improves athletic performance. It consists of Seafood Kaminabe Hotpot, Gindara Cod Fish, Ebi Avocado Tofu, Kinoko Soup, Sakae Chawanmushi , choice of Rice or Udon and fresh cut Fruits.

Also 15% of the proceeds from this “Sakae's Power Pro Bento” that available from now till 31st August 2010 will go to the Singapore Sailing Federation. So do try this out if you love grill cod fish and seafood hotpot.

These are some of the finger food that are being served during the event. Look at these, isn't it look great and health for both kids and adults!

Each guest is given a lunch ticket whereby we can use it to redeem our sushi lunch box and a bottle of Mineral Water(with cute Sakae wrapper on it). Each box consists of 8 pieces of freshly made sushi which are:- Kani Makimono, Ebi Nigiri, Lobster Salad Gunkan and etc. This is indeed a special experience of us to enjoy our favourite Sakae Sushi in a lunchbox at the void desk of Sakae Sushi building during raining day afternoon…

These are some of the items found in my boy’s goodies bag which consists of Sakae design notepad, photo frame, mini electric fan, cap and a plush toy (my boy kept it). Thanks Sakae for the invitation, although they might be some disappointment on the event and weather but overall we still enjoy ourselves with the food and etc. Posted by Picasa

According to the newsletter there are a lot of freebies, product discount and even food sampling during the event. (Click HERE for more details)

Since the theme of the event is based on “Fresh & Green” I guess there will be a lot of freshly imported vegetables and fruits that available for your choice and selection. Other than vegetables you could sample some of their fresh organic fruit juice before deciding on which one to get.

According to the newsletter there would be a serving of Roasted Rhug Estate Lamb from the award winning Organic Welsh Lamb from 11:00am – 1:00pm only. So do not hesitate, remember to bring your friends or family and pop-by their store on 27 June 2010 to get your freebies and as well sampling this award winning Organic Welsh Lamb.

From there walk straight towards the junction of Tomlinson and Orchard Boulevard Road and you will see Park House Condominium. Or you can drive and park at the public carpark outside the store.

Xin Zhao Yang Seafood Garden

Soup! This is always the first category that I will look for before ordering any other dishes from the Zhi Char - 煮炒摊 Menu. From the menu, we ordered this “Kau Khee Soup - 九杞菜汤/枸杞菜汤” which is cooked with slices of pork fillet, minced pork and egg. This is a very quick and easy soup that you can also whipped it up at home with simple ingredients such as egg and minced meat. The soup itself is infused with light ginger fragrant which it very refreshing. Look at the amount of ingredients in it, this bowl of soup cost S$4.00 which I think is worth it's price.

Xin Zhao Yang Seafood Garden - 新朝阳海鲜 is a Zhi Char Stall located at a corner in the coffee shop near Yishun Bus Inter-change at Block 921, Yishun Central 1. It is usually packed with crowds during weekends from as early as 5.30pm onwards.

This is our first time patronising this Zhi Char stall which is quite new in this coffee shop. But actually a few weeks back we had actually tried their “Hor Fun - 河粉” which mum has bought for us. And because of the good review we had from the hor fun, today we are here to try more on their dishes.

From their staff’s recommendation, we ordered two of their signature dishes which are “Thai-style Deep-fried Fish Fillet - 泰式酸甜鱼片” and “Braised Spare Ribs - 红烧排骨”. The “Thai-style Deep-Fried Fish Fillet” was kind of different from what we expected from the usual one that is cooked with those refreshing ingredients such as shredded cucumber and mango. This is dish is rather some deep-fried fish fillet that serves with some chilli sauce. Overall the taste is not too spicy or sour but we just feel that it’s still not towards our liking of thai-style sauce.

A few minutes later, our “Braised Spare Ribs - 红烧排骨” are served together with some "Deep-fried Mantou - 炸馒头". According to the staff, they only have limited plates of this signature dish available each day and from what I have observed, most of the customers do order this dish on their table. The texture of the spare ribs is very tender and it is well flavour by the seasoning and gravy which makes it a "hot" ordering item . You can also use the fried mantou to dip with the sauce or sandwich the meat from the spare ribs which is easily fall off due to the long hour of cooking time. This dish cost S$10.00 with about 6 spare ribs and 4 deep-fried mantou.

This Zhi Char stall still has a lot of interesting dishes that we would definitely go back and try out some of it soon. So if you are staying around this area or happen to pop-by, perhaps you might also want to give it a try too! Posted by Picasa

Kau Kee Mee Suah - 九杞面线

Kau Kee - 九杞 (wolfberry leaves) is a kind of leafy vegetables that comes in long stalks and sharp thorns on it. You can get this from most local supermarkets or tradition wet markets near your area. I normally cook this vegetable together with minced meat and egg. But in this post I am sharing another version by  transforming it into a noodle dish.
