Hey, it’s certainly been a while since I last wrote an entry! When you have an awesome writing machine as a partner, it is certainly easy to go a little slack.
Yesterday, we had lunch at Kilo at Pact. The food was great as usual, and I jokingly said that oh this is the Small And Able*’s Chinese New Year lunch. There was no yusheng lohei, but we had some tuna tartare on soy crackers which could count, I guess.
We also had the Summer Shrimp Rolls for the first time, and they were delish. They are served with sweet Thai chilli sauce, and while it was probably not health-wise to drench the roll in that sauce, it was certainly very satisfying. The ebiko pasta was good too!
We were a little surprised that the crowd (if you could even call it that) at the restaurant was rather dismal. It could be everyone was having a fancy CNY lunch in a Chinese restaurant somewhere; our friendly advice to everyone this festive season is to eat in moderation! For every slice of bak kwa you consume, remember to knock back a couple of mandarin oranges (you know, for fiber and all).
We bought a couple of boxes of fortune cookies, thinking we would give them out to our shop customers. But since the shop is currently closed, we have no choice but to eat these cookies ourselves.
Happy Year of the Horse! May this year bring you fantastic health and plenty of fun.
* As you may have read from our Facebook page or Instagram post, we had to keep our shop closed since last week because of an ongoing issue with the ventilation and/or pest situation in the mall building. It’s been an extremely frustrating experience so far, dealing with people who have not an ounce of professional pro-activeness and who think that if they can’t figure out a solution, that the problem doesn’t exist.
** We have had some very nice readers coming to the shop. Hello, and thank you!
