Prima Deli (Taste) Delights

One of the ways to cook your own authentic SG food in Oz is to use ready-to-use mixes. Even though this is 'cheating', not cooking from scratch using raw ingredients, the convenience of using premixes is really enticing... especially when the end result is very satisfying and authentic and 'shiok'!

I was checking out Prima Taste to see what premixes are available and which ones are available in party packs (cook in bulk). I was amazed to see that other than laksa and chicken rice, they have a lot more others! Why didn't I know this earlier so that I could bring them back from SG?? Check out the prices... they are really good value too!

Of their mixes, I have tried bak kut teh, beef rendang, chicken rice, laksa and chilli crab. They are all really authentic... which makes me not really miss those food at all :p If you purchase these mixes on their online store, you apparently get free shipping to anywhere in Singapore for purchases above S$30.

In the meantime, it cost a bit more to buy in Australia, given the current currency exchange rate. However if we were to bring it back from Singapore, they might be rejected by the customs... But thank God, so far, I manage to get through all that I have brought over.

Party packs are available at Prima Taste Kitchen, The Centrepoint Shopping Centre. They are great for hosting parties of at least 10 people. That means I can have a party with Singaporean friends here over authentic Singapore food :)
