Andddd here’s my Sunday in a nutshell!
P.s in case you missed what happened on Saturday, you can read it here:
- Weekends with Mitsueki (SP Phase 2 (HA), Day 117 (Day 651): Errands Saturday x Anime Marathon x CNY Shopping Spree with the KC Girls – 22 Jan 2022
Sunday mornings = doing chores, working out, trying out the Brookie from the Mister and doing my food preps for tomorrow’s lunch bento set!
I also tried soaking the apples into a solution of cold water and salt as I heard that it can help with the browning process (very ugly) so your apples will still look nice and fresh even after being kept overnight in the fridge… So let’s see what happens tomorrow!
Then I was off to meet the Mister as we headed over to Koufu at Toa Payoh HDB Hub for a lunch tasting session at Tian Fu Pao Fan!
This teochew delight is now getting more and more commonplace in many hawkers and food courts run by ex-hotel chefs as this premium dish used to be served only in Chinese restaurants. However, many chefs who have exited the hotel line have decided to go into running their own pao fan ventures and Tian Fu Pao Fan is one of them!
They have a couple of outlets islandwide at a few Koufu food courts and hawkers, but the one that I would recommend you to visit is the Koufu at Toa Payoh HDB Hub like what we did as the owner/shifu/ex hotel chef usually mans the store at this particular outlet.
With over 13 selections of pao fan options here, you’ll be spoiled for choice as it ranges from seafood options to even non seafood ones like iberico pork and duck breast! However, do note that the stock broth itself is the same for all – zero MSG and made up of 10kg worth of fresh Kampong hens, 10kg of trotters and flower clams boiled for over 8 hours!
Pair it with their indulgent seafood options, crispy puffed rice, spring onion and steamed rice soaked in this broth = it’s hard to go wrong for a warm and comforting meal that won’t break the bank (unless you opt for the more luxurious lobster pao fan priced at $19.90 (half) and $38 (whole) :p).
Oh and beyond the pao fan options, you can also opt for noodles instead if that’s your preference.
The Mister and I tried two options – their signature seafood king paofan priced at $9.80 and the iberico pork paofan priced at $7.80.
After trying both, the former definitely takes the cake because you get a little bit of everything from scallops, fish paste ball (same as the one used in HaiDiLiao), prawn paste ball, two prawns (deshelled), a few lala and your choice of fried or sliced fish. Yums.
The iberico pork is not too bad too, but you’re missing out on all the seafood ingredients which further elevates the taste of the pao fan!
Overall, here’s to ticking off our first pao fan meal together (the Mister’s first time trying) – we’ll be back for more next time!

Multiple outlets islandwide
Moving on next after a good catch up with Cindy, we headed to Parkway Parade to check out Isetan before they closed for good come 31 Jan. Didn’t really see that many deals around, but I did pick up some new and decent quality lingerie for a good price – 4 undies + 2 wireless bras at $28!
Followed by dessert, fruits, bak kwa and binge watching of Jujutsu Kaisen to end off our Sunday right 🙂
It’s been a great weekend so far and thanks always for reading!
