Is This Yours, Big Mama?

The *annual haze is getting worse and some schools were closed recently due to the PSI rising to toxic levels. So I, too, have been staying put at home, relying on the goodwill of Sam and Vanessa bringing me dinner in the late evenings. By late I mean 10.30pm onwards!

I had Korean meal yesterday and the day before that and I hope tomorrow’s dinner (cos I’m going out for dinner tonight) would not be Korean but I will not turn it down if the kids do Korean take-outs again! That’s just the way it is. Valerie and Vanessa are “seasonal” folks. They watch the same cartoons (video tapes and LDs in the 90s) over and over again everyday for months and they also like to wear the same clothes daily (making sure our domestic help puts the laundry in dryer immediately after washing).

Sorry I side-tracked. Anyway, Vanessa read some raved reviews of Mama’s Galbijjim and wanted some but they did not have it. In the end, she bought Beef Ribs and Kimchi Chige for a total of S$45. The soup was pretty small in portion but the ribs as shown on my plate was one third of the order. I do not have a price breakdown of the two items.

The condiment with dried salmon flakes and seaweed was not from the restaurant but my pantry, hahaha…

The beef ribs shown here was one third of the portion Vanessa bought.
The rice was home-cooked.

These days, I’m eating blind! Blind as in I do not know which restaurant my food came from. I asked Sam and he said Vanessa bought it. I asked Vanessa and she said Mama Korean. I knew better than to question further therefore I had to google it – The only restaurant that’s anything close to Mama Korean is Bigmama Korean Restaurant and so I have to ask about my dinner here, “Is this yours, Big Mama?”

Now if this meal was from Big Mama, readers here will be delighted to know that Ji-young Nam Gung nicknamed as “Big Mama” do not use MSG in her cooking.
