I was walking around Geylang Serai Food Centre and this stall caught my eye. The elderly lady sitting in front of this stall recommended me to try, saying it was good. Her husband later returned with two plates of kacang pool, for the both of them.
I decided to order one to try. It’s my first time trying this. It's a mixed stew of an assortment of beans. Topped with chopped onions, cut chilli and a sunny side up freshly fried. Squeeze the lime onto the stew and stir it in. Served with a side of French loaf that's toasted. Savory and a unique dish. An interesting dish and something unique!
I've to confess this is my virgin taste of this dish. But in the true nicholas spark fashion, the romantism attached to this dish digs deep in my heart. Being one of the many dishes that I would beg my boyfriend to cook for me whilst we were stationed in Sydney. Its heart tingling spice inclusions and generous portions paired with crusty bread made for a delicious meal in the dead of a winters night. Back home in Singapore with less than a whisper of cool air in the breeze, I was praying the spiciness wouldn't leave a trickle of sweat down the back of my thin white blouse. Surprinsgly, the true rendition delivered in all aspects, and as I dug my spoon gregariously into it's warm innards, I grew to love it even more. No kidding.To those who haven't tried the dish. Put away your Roti Prata (as my boyfriend would say) and give the dish a go.
