Deep-fried siakap with bean sauce. I thought this was seriously exceptional. Papa Chow remarked that however you tried to replicate this simple dish at home, it just wouldn't taste the same. I think this means he's tried.
Stir-fried tau kua with leek: a very prosaic unremarkable dish again, executed perfectly. The taukua was fresh, soft and flavourful, heavenly in my mouth. The meal was an exquisite experience in Hokkien home-style cooking, easily one of the best in recent memory. Props to the chef, and to Papa Chow for bringing us there.
