Our recent meal was a scrumptious Hotplate Tofu with Prawns ( 铁板豆腐虾 ), along with other dishes that made up our 3 Dishes 1 Soup meal ( 三菜一汤 ) for my family of three:
  • Papaya Pork Rib Soup ( 木瓜排骨湯 )
  • Pan-Fried Teriyaki Cod Fish ( 日式香煎鳕鱼 )
  • Stuffed Bitter Gourd Boat with Minced Pork ( 肉碎苦瓜船 )

With online grocery shopping these days, everything becomes so convenient with your daily needs delivered straight to your home. Friendly delivery staff coupled with fresh food that arrives in a cooler box is why I love shopping with PurelyFresh.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood and meat, and even household essentials, PurelyFresh carries quite a variety. If you noticed, I am cooking more often these days since I no longer need to queue at supermarkets and carry my heavy purchases home.

My experience with PurelyFresh by far has been a satisfying one. In fact, I had received couple of pleasant surprises with stuff like complimentary fruits. In this order, I was given Seedless Black Grapes ( 黑葡萄 ), Nam Shui Li/Oriental Pear ( 南水梨 ) and Dole Papaya ( 小木瓜 ). It is these little gestures that make shopping at PurelyFresh a desirable one.

With the Grey Prawns ( 灰虾 ), Pork Minced Meat ( 碎肉 ), Unicurd Egg Tofu ( 蛋豆腐 ), Red Chilli ( 红辣椒 ) and Spring Onion ( 葱 ) from PurelyFresh, I made this Hotplate Tofu ( 铁板豆腐 ). For those who can't take pork, simply replace with chicken instead.

Hotplate Tofu is one of the very popular Chinese cuisines in Asia and a hot favourite too. If you don't have a hotplate to make this yummy dish, just use any metal pan like this one that I have bought from #Daiso for just $2! The result is just as delicious minus all that the sizzling.
