[Food Tasting] Curry Party at FU XIANG SIGNATURES !

We had a tasty and fun interactive experience when Jessie and i attended the food tasting and cooking session at Fu Xiang Signatures, VivoCity Food Republic.

Owned by a pair of young twin brothers, Edric and Edwin, Fu Xiang Signatures is a place to be for a traditional good bowl of Curry with heritage passed down from generation to generation.

Fu Xiang Signatures is best known for its Award Winning Curry Chicken, started out in the 1990s, from a small stall in a Coffee Shop, and has since expanded islandwide in Singapore.

I am not sure about the rest but the outlet at VivoCity Food Republic has a standalone section with its own dining space with WiFi available.

While waiting for the session to start, i walked around to appreciate the setting and also check out its menu. Great value meals available all day, everyday!!

Cute Snacks corner they have!

The tasting session started off with " The Perfect Curry " which was made using a special blend of 21 secret spices and herbs, a total of 9 hours of hand preparation (including their in-house Chilli Paste) and an hour of dedicated cooking.

Every bowl of Curry Chicken set includes a drumstick and thigh meat that has the perfect tenderness. The Curry is a tad spicy for both Jessie and myself but tasted really good and aromatic. A Must Try for all Curry lovers!

Emperor Cream Sauce Chicken is a dish of crispy yet juicy chicken chunks in rich, savoury cream sauce. A dish that can be enjoyed by both the adults and children as the sauce is less spicy and sweeter as compared to Curry. I personally enjoyed eating this, a wonderful pairing of Fried Chicken chunks and creamy Curry sauce!

Chicken Biscuit Curry is a very unique recipe where the chicken cutlet was battered with crushed biscuit crumbs and the texture turns out great and goes well with the Curry sauce too.

Another unique recipe that was introduced to me is the Sambal Crispy Pork. The Chilli Padi on top was fried to dry and the Pork was marinated with Prawn Paste so as to give a spicy and flavourful taste. (They say it as a taste very similar to Har Cheong Kai Chicken.)

Well prepared, Juicy Pork meat with crispy Chilli Padi!

Last but not least to our tasting session was this huge serving of the Singapore Curry Assam Fish Head. A highly anticipated dish that everyone was dying to taste. The gravy was appetising with the added Assam and it goes very well with a plate of fragrance white rice!

I am really grateful to have tried some of the many signature dishes at Fu Xiang Signatures and i enjoyed each and every hearty dishes prepared.

To spice things up a little, owner Edwin who is also a Chef himself, hosted a cook-off session before serving the above dishes and letting us all to have some hands-on making Salted Egg Cream Sauce.

Ingredients used :
- Butter / Margarine
- Mashed Egg Yolk (about 20 Duck Egg)
- Sugar
- Evaporated Milk
- Curry Leaves
- Chilli

Honoured and a pleasure learning how to cook from the humble and fun Chef Edwin! Check out Fu Xiang Signatures' Instagram Profile where there are videos shared teaching simple cooking.

We were told that the sauce made can be use to pair with simple food like Fried Chicken or a sauce for Pasta.

Thank you Fu Xiang Signatures !!
