What do I mean when I say “intensity” in praise of this dish or that restaurant?
Here is an example – the Gong Bao Chicken from Chinatown Seafood:
And please see below. This is the same dish afterwards – look at all that dried chili! It was intense – not just about the chili, but that was a key part in making this a special dish for me.
Intensity -the absolute necessity of creating a dish that does not waste the cook’s time or that the customer.
This is why I love Singapore.
