When in mood for a hot lazy winter Sunday morning brunch, why not try making some thin rice noodles (or rice vermicelli) with stir fried fresh veggies & some prawns & scrambled eggs thrown in for good measure………….

….well, u can do without the prawns or the eggs or both or u can substitute the prawns with chicken – whatever be it, u r sure 2 get a load of praise.

Since good food has no set chemical formula, I refuse to list out measurements in grams & mililiitres. I ‘d rather leave it 2 ur interpretation, preference & imagination.

To start with, slice veggies like zucchini, white onions / spring onions, babycorns, pokchoy (Chinese leafy veggie), bell peppers (capsicum) – green, yellow or red or all of them, mushrooms (try the dried black mushrooms)……………… more or less the way it is shown in the pic. Just tear the Pokchoy into pieces with hand before cooking it.

Thinly slice fat cloves of garlic & mince a tiny piece of ginger.

Fabulous Chimney Soup & other mouthwatering Chinese dishes served by a Chinese family in a nondescript restaurant with very nice interiors.

The showstopper at Eay Chew – Chimney Soup

Cuisine Type: Nonvegetarian & Vegetarian

Short Description – In case u r in a hurry:

Unless u have a real ‘get weird’ mindset, u will surely miss the restaurant in the first one or two times u pass in front of the place. It has a tiny puny board that hangs atop a narrow door with a long flight of stairs within. The building is inside a erstwhile petrol pump – All that remains are memories of the pump, some new cars parked there & fossils of what used to be goods vehicles at some point in time.

This is what u see from the road – remains of an extinct petrol pump

However, as u enter the restaurant, it is as good as it can get & as authentic as it can get. The place is owned by a Chinese family who run it themselves day in & day out.

As u walk in closer, the signboard is visible

If u order only one dish, let it be the Showstopper Chimney soup. A huge pot of excellent hot piping soup that is good for 2 people at least. In addition to this we had a spicy hot & superb chilly pork, chicken chilli, a very balanced sweet & sour honey lemon chicken, a second best – fish in Chilli black bean, a very good hakka mixed meat mein foon (rice noodle) & a fairly good speciality – Josephine’s noodles.
