At the food court I decided to try a rice dish with beef and Jp tried a bowl of congee (it's like a rice porridge). He had heard people refer to congee many times as comfort food.
Unfortunately my dish came with the parts of beef I don't like to eat - tripe, lung, liver etc. And Jp's bowl of congee tasted like a big bowl of wall paper paste - we have no idea how that can be comfort food for anyone. Usually we are pretty open to new foods and do like a wide range of food but I suppose this was just too "authentic" for us. I had to throw my bowl away and bought a bowl of lemongrass chicken soup from the Vietnamese restaurant which was absolutely yummy. We were both disappointed that we chose so badly on the Chinese foods.
We did have a successful shopping trip at Daiso and then went home to have some good old fashioned American hot dogs - that's our comfort food.
