Some people wonder why the heck do I bother to cook at home when I live in a food paradise. I've stated my arguments before, but a recent takeaway dinner from Park 'n Shop got me wondering too.
I was too tired after a day of crazy shopping with my sis, I couldn't be bothered to cook or even dine out. Plus, we had to bring some food to feed my mama, who
The dishes are tasty and wonderfully cheap!
We bought a generous portion of grilled chicken with garlic flakes.
The meat was tender, juicy and tasty...the skin...oh the skin...crisp from a few minutes of oven reheating, with bits of garlic flakes. It was perfection, and it costs only HK$27 (around USD3.5)!
The BBQ Ribs was tasty but the meat wasn't as tender as we'd like...but it's great for just HK$17 (around USD2.2)
My sis isn't a fan of eggplants. Well, she hates them to the bone, but I was sure that this one's gonna convert her. The classic spicy eggplants with minced meat...was super delicious! OK, it was a bit greasy, but that made it taste even more wonderful with steamed rice.
Yum!...and it costs just HK$17 (around USD2.2)
All I did at home was reheating (some of the dishes were even still hot/warm) and do a simple vegetable dish. It's so simple, it's ridiculous.
It's baby pak choy in chicken broth.
- 1 lb baby pak choy
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 cup chicken stock
- olive oil, a bit of white pepper
Saute garlic in olive oil, add baby pak choy, stir fry until they're a little bit wilted, pour chicken stock and cook until the vegetables achieve your desired level of tenderness. For me, no more seasonings necessary except a bit of white pepper.
Nice and clear, perfect to accompany the rich tasting dishes.
