By now, you would have heard of the Kale Revolution.
|Kale - Picture from here|
It is the vegetable equivalent of chia seeds. Like bees to honey, the Kale Revolution attracts those who treat food like medicine. Never mind the price as it is an imported veg. Or that it can make for awful eating if eaten raw or cooked the wrong way.
Kai Lan is called Chinese Kale.
I love to eat squid and I like it cooked whichever way.
Squid is prized for it's succulent texture. In Southeast Asian cuisine, it is often paired with strong and robust sauces.
If I were to order from a Nasi Padang stall, I would almost always choose a squid dish, especially Sambal Sotong or when it is cooked in it's own black ink: Sotong Goreng Hitam.
The fresh Arrow Squid is really cheap at about $10 per kilo and fresh when you buy it in wet markets. With the escalating price of prawns recently, I will say sotong will be the way to go.
