No pics, obviously, but here's the rundown of what I had at Ko:

Amuses:

Tofu with grilled maitake mushroom and chili oil

Cold fried cheese stick (?) filled with caviar (was definitely better tasting than it sounds)

Oyster

Lobster and coconut gelee with charred fennel (highlight of the amuses)

Appetizers:

Crudo plate: mackerel, fluke, kampachi and scallops. Each one had its own sauce. The mackerel blew me away. It was cured and the skin was charred.

Surf and Turf: Short rib with mushroom stems and homemade yuba (tofu skin?) with uni

Oxtail consomme with onion tortelloni

Poached aerated chicken egg (it came out of a whipped cream dispenser) with bacon dashi (wasn't the biggest fan of this).

Bento Box: Duck meatball with tomato sauce, grilled rice in pork fat, brussels sprouts with XO sauce and a clam dashi with littleneck clams (I really liked this).

Mains (every main course was amazing, no joke):

Orecchiette with cheddar sauce, broccoli puree, broccoli stems and dehydrated broccoli florets. Ham bits and black truffles shaved on top (holy shit, so good).

Fish: Poached lobster tail with a turnip cake (made with lobster claw). Charred cauliflower and apple gel (crazy combination).

Charcuterie plate: duck heart, leg and liver pate. Pig face. Pig ears. Burnt onion mustard (favorite course of the day).

Meat: Half squab: sous-vide breast with sunchoke puree and barley, chestnuts and crispy skin; deep fried leg, roasted suncoke and grapes (classic dish executed perfectly).

Pre-desserts :

Cheese course: Comte and Gruyere consomme. Brioche toast with bone marrow fat and burn onion jam (had this a year ago when I went for dinner. Not as good).

frozen foie gras torchon with pine nut brittle and lychee gelee (signature dish).

Desserts (finally):

Oatmeal ice-cream, burnt apple sauce, apple biscotti and apple gelee.

Miso ice-cream in a rice waffle cone stuffed with mochi and sticky rice topped with black rice (this was just introduced this weekend. Amazing).

Ramen at すみれ 札幌本店, one of the 2 originators of the 60s style super thick sapporo miso ramen. still popular today and fucking amazing. best bowl of noodles I've had in my life. awed that there's probably even better stuff out there. wish I had more time in sapporo.

IMG_1181.jpg

IMG_1183.jpg

there's this really thick layer of oil that keeps the ramen warm, great for cold weather. real hearty

IMG_1184.jpg

they use diced up chashu that's still super tasty in the miso ramen

IMG_1185.jpg

beautiful firm textured noodles

IMG_1186.jpg

egg

IMG_1187.jpg

despite the oil, the heaviness of the miso, the stock was still awesome. when i finished it, there's this scratched up "thank you" on the bottom of the bowl in kanji.

Can't leave out Singapore. Wah Kee Big Prawn Noodle. Used to be at Farrer Park, now at Pek Kio market. $3/5/8/10. I had the $8. I prefer smaller prawns myself but the soup is still as good as ever.

Had some leftovers from the night before. Never tried a deep fried burger and didn't wanna just heat it up normally considering no burger tastes the same as it was fresh. Instead made a quick batter with some Perrier, baking soda, flour, s&p and gave em a fry.

so rewarding yet quite simple to do and inexpensive (unless you're an ogre and eat it all on 1 meal). i still managed to pour too much water though, i didn't know what amount i should put.

I use no water for just the chicken itself; I brine it with salt/honey water and some amount of herbs (thyme, rosemary, garlic, peppercorns, lemon) beforehand, and just roast it in a skillet in the oven. All it needs it a rubbing of peanut or canola oil and S+P. Comes out succulent and juicy every time, barely any need to baste it either. You could roast over veggies or mushrooms and add just a half inch of water and then be sure to baste the veggies in the water/fat drippings, though.

My only problem is that my oven is a tiny Asian electric oven, so there's no room to roast a whole chicken; I lop off the legs at the joint, cut the wings off the same way, use sharp scissors to cut the backbone out (and cut off a bit of the stinky butt fat) and then I use a knife to cut the breast/tenderloins off in one piece and then I tie the crown in twine. The roulade forms one piece during cooking and it's easy to slice afterward. It gives you option to fill the roulade with something as well if you'd like, pistou or figs would be nice.

This way, basically I get 95% of the meat I would from the whole bird that you'd eat normally (those wings I'd use in stock anyway), but it lays lower and flatter in the pan, and browns more evenly on top, and it's also cleaner to present IMO. One 'neat' part and one 'natural' part, breast and leg.

(yeah I've put extravagant hours into thinking about roast chicken :o)

roasting your own chicken is dope but honestly i've been spoiled by costco's roast chickens which are only 4$ here... stock and chicken salads the next day... and the day after.

Sometimes costco chickens have way too much solution injected and you get mushy meat sections. Also no crispy skin
