Postpartum Service Review_Confinement Food Catering By Tian Wei Signature_Part 1 On Traditional Meals

This post today is my review of the confinement meals which I had during my 28-Day confinement, catered by Tian Wei Signature. I will split my posts into two dividing the traditional meals and fusion meals since that is the way Tian Wei offers their 28-Day Double Package. The traditional meals are served during the first two weeks of confinement followed by fusion meals covering the last two. 



So far it's been 2 weeks since I got home and after trying the traditional confinement meals from Tian Wei Signature, here's my review and personal thoughts on the food & service:


On the packaging and delivery:

> Meals are delivered twice a day for lunch and dinner and always delivered early or on time.

> Meals are delivered in a thermal bag and in plastic containers. Though not the most environmental friendly method, the convenience of not having to wash is a winner.

> Food is always warm when I open up to eat, never had to heat up the meals but its an option for you to decide.




On the serving and portion:

> Every meal is balanced & fulfilling and comprises of 1 portion greens, 1 portion fish/meat (fish/chicken/pork), 1 portion of staple (rice/noodles), and a portion of either soup or dessert. Not forgetting a liter of Red Date tea which is packed in 2 separate plastic cups.
> On the first two days a portion of 'Sheng Hua Soup' (生化汤)is given on top of the normal dinner meals which serves the purpose of helping postpartum uterine contractions (see next segment for more details).
> Portion is quite generous but not extremely much that I couldn't finish. I could finish every single dish and about half the rice on every meal. I don't know if I'm really such a big eater now or that breastfeeding hunger is real!! LOL! Anyway breastfeeding Moms really need to eat well to keep our supply going, so no dieting! And you'd need to eat well to recuperate well to take care of your baby later. So just eat k.. get yourselves well and ready before thinking of dieting.

Let's take a look at the meals & dishes as I comment on them. 

SATURDAY LUNCH (Day1)
BRAISED FISH MAW WITH HAIRY GOURD, STEAMED PORK RIBS WITH WOLF-BERRIES AND RED DATES AND SPLEEN STRENGTHENING SOUP SERVED WITH QUINOA MIXED RICE 
毛瓜焖鱼鳔,红枣枸杞蒸排骨,健脾汤和藜麥配饭

Sheng Hua Soup (生化汤): Most important decoction that helps postpartum uterine contractions. The main role of it is to increase blood and promote blood circulations during postpartum, promotes secretion of milks, helps on painful uterine contractions, lochia discharge, and to prevent blood clots. 

As I was discharged on a Saturday, my first meal was the Saturday lunch.. I've put up the menu of the day as well as the purpose of the Sheng Hua Soup above. I realised I forgot to snap a pic of the Sheng Hua Soup - it's basically just a plain bowl of dark-coloured looking herbal soup. To find out more about it, click on link hereAs much as this soup is bitter (to be honest), it is good for you and your recovery so please drink up. Just take it as a herbal drink and bottoms up.

So I have my meals at my dresser every day, my dresser is actually an attachment of my room. Both my confinements are quite similar in this sense. Now its just like having room service with my meals catered - receive delivery, eat and throw. Hassle free and simple. Hehe.

SATURDAY DINNER (Day1)
French Beans With Shimeji Mushroom, Baked Fillet Fish With Ginger Mirin Sauce And Pork Ribs Soup With Black Bean Served With Plain Rice 
四季豆炒茶树菇,味醂香烤鱼柳,排骨黑豆汤配白饭

Things I like about the flavors of the dishes, they are not oily at all and not too salty. And definitely a yes-yes for no MSG added! If you're wondering how come the menu says 'white rice' but you see something else, it's b'cuz I've requested for a swap since I'm not a fan. You may state your preference and the team from Tian Wei will assist on your request if possible.

SUNDAY LUNCH (day2)
Stir Fried Egg With Amaranth And Silver Bait Fish, Steamed Minced Pork With Chinese Yam And Wolfberries And Dispel Blood Herbal Tonic Soup Served With Barley Millet Rice 
银鱼苋菜炒蛋, 淮山枸杞蒸肉饼,祛血滋补炖汤配薏米小米饭

Dispel Blood Herbal Tonic Soup: Stimulate Circulation to end blood stasis, tonify liver and kidney, strengthens the muscles and bones, and the capability of removing rheumatism.

The tonic soup-of-the-day is served during lunch and each of the soups have their own purpose in aiding with your recovery. There are 30 types of herbal soups in Tian Wei's menu, so much to try!

SUNDAY DINNER (Day2)
Stir Fried Sweet Pea With Kidney And Liver With Hua Diao, Stir Fried Chicken With Capsicum In PUMPKIN Sauce And Slice Fish With Egg In Ginger Broth Served With Plain Rice 
花雕甜豆炒腰子猪肝, 金瓜酱炒鸡丁灯笼椒,姜丝鱼片蛋花汤配白饭

This was one of my favorite meals. I love the Slice Fish w Egg Ginger Broth (Soup) b'cuz it's really flavorsome and different from the usual chicken or pork ribs soup. Also love the pumpkin sauce from the Chicken w Capsicum in Pumpkin Sauce dish 'cuz it taste a little different from the usual Chinese food. Reminds me a little of Pumpkin Soup, hehe.

MONDAY LUNCH (day3)
Stir Fried Spinach With Silver Bait Fish, Steamed Threadfin Fillet With Ginger Broth And Black Fungus And Nourishing And Strong Nourishing Soup Served with Barley Millet Rice 
清炒银鱼波菜, 姜汁清蒸午鱼黑木耳,大补元血汤配薏米小米饭

Threadfin: helps to promote breast milk production, ginger to dispel wind and black fungus nourishes the lungs, stomach and liver.

I usually buy Threadfin and Cod fillet for Baby F. to make porridge or steamed with rice, first time I'm having it for myself. 
It's quite nice especially knowing its a milk booster.

MONDAY DINNER (Day3)
Broccoli With Braised Mushroom, Stewed Pork With Galangal And Lemongrass And Dispel Wind Chicken Soup With Lemongrass Served With Tri Colour Rice 
西兰花炖冬菇, 香茅南姜炖肉,香茅祛风鸡汤和三色饭

Lemongrass: helps to relief cold symptom from the body, combat fatigue and anxiety. Galangal contain anti-inflammatory properties, relief discomfort caused by inflammation of the abdomen and blood circulation.

TUESDAY LUNCH (day4)
Stir Fried Egg With Amaranth And Silver Bait Fish, Stir Fried Pork With Ginger And Sesame Oil And Nourishing And Beautifying Chicken Soup Served With Plain Rice  
银鱼苋菜炒蛋,姜丝麻油炒肉片, 滋润养颜炖鸡汤配白饭

I am usually not a very big fan of rice and do not eat it if unnecessary. I think the only time I really eat alot of rice is during confinement b'cuz I have to boost my calorie intake, and also the meal wouldn't feel complete without it b'cuz the gravy from the dishes go very well with rice. It's b'cuz of the gravy that made me be able to have at least half the portion of rice. So that being said, most of their dishes are cooked with quite alot of gravy. If you're not a fan of gravy, I'm sure you could send your request and the kitchen will make adjustments based on your preference.

TUESDAY DINNER (day4)
Stir Fried Kailan With Lean Meat, Lemongrass Fenugreek Braised Threadfin Fillet And Gingko Lotus Seed Pork Belly Soup Served With Pumpkin Rice 
瘦肉炒芥兰,香茅葫芦巴焖午鱼,白果莲子猪肚汤配南瓜饭

Fenugreek is a milk booster which I was definitely excited to try. It didn't have any strong taste to it and in fact I couldn't really identity the taste.. But if you see from the picture above, its the little seed-like bits on the fish fillet.

WEDNESDAY LUNCH (Day5)
Stir Fried French Beans With Slice Fish, Stir Fried Pork And Kidney With D.O.M And Cordyceps Blossom Soup Served With Five Grain Rice 
鱼片炒四季豆, 法国郎酒炒瘦肉腰子, 虫草花炖汤配五谷饭

Pig kidney: helps ‘replenish’ the kidneys, especially for confinement mothers who suffer from back pain.

WEDNESDAY DINNER (day5)
Shanghai Green With Shiitake Mushroom, Marmite Marinated Pork Ribs And Green Papaya Fish Soup Served With Brown Rice 
上海青炒花菇, 妈密排骨,青木瓜鱼汤配糙米饭

Green Papaya Fish Soup: Detoxifying and increase breastmilk, cure deficiency, reduce diuresis and swell. 
The soup is light even though fried fish is used.

THURSDAY LUNCH (day6)
Stir Fried Snow Pea And Liver With Hua Diao, Braised Pork With Ginger And Potato And Polygonum Multiflorum Black Chicken Soup Served With Millet Mixed Rice 
花雕雪豌豆炒猪肝, 马铃薯焖肉片, 何首乌乌鸡汤和小米配白饭

Polygonum Multiflorum Black Chicken Soup: Nourishing the blood, increase black hair, tonify liver and kidney, and the capability of anti-aging. I really didn't know what Polygonum Multiflorum was until I had this soup and Googled it (link here). Still half clueless what it is but the soup is to my liking. I'm a huge fan of anything beans so really fancied the beans in the soup. 

THURSDAY DINNER (day6)
Braised Sea Cucumber With Spinach, Steamed Threadfin With Ginger In Superior Soya Sauce And Pork Ribs Soup With Lotus Roots And Red Dates Served With Plain Rice
海参菠菜, 港蒸姜丝午鱼,莲藕红枣排骨汤配白饭

And just a mention on the Red Date Tea, they're thoughtfully provided in two standard sized cups (total 1L each meal). I usually have one with my meal and kept the other for later the afternoon. There were Longan and Red Date pieces inside the drink, but was a tad sweet/thick for my liking. I called up Tian Wei to request for a less sweet version and was immediately changed to my preference on the next meal.

FRIDAY LUNCH (day7)
Stir Fried Pork Liver With White Beehoon And Kailan, Sweet And Sour Fish Slices With Heart Calming Soup
芥兰猪肝焖白米粉, 酸甜鱼片配安神汤

Kailan: is rich in iron and is believed to strengthen joints and lymph, and is beneficial to veins and bones. Pig Liver is reputed to possess yang essence and has high iron content. It helps to replenish blood, especially if confinement mother is suffering anemic after childbirth.

This was another of my favorite meals surprisingly. Surprisingly b'cuz I'm usually not a fan of Bee Hoon. When I first saw it on the online menu I thought like bleah. But when I tried it, to my surprise it was rather addictive. I like the moist texture of the stir fried Bee Hoon plus the pairing of my favorite dish, Sweet & Sour Fish Slices.. Yums!

FRIDAY DINNER (day7)
Steam Okra With Conpoy, Braised Chicken With Black Fungus And Angelica And Pork Ribs Soup With Chinese Yam And Red Dates Served With Tri Colour Rice 
清蒸干贝羊角豆, 当归木耳焖鸡,山药红枣排骨汤配三色饭

Braised Chicken With Black Fungus And Angelica: This dish benefits and balances the blood, it build up our body supplements due to loss of blood, treats pain and soothes the intestines.

SATURDAY LUNCH (day8)
Braised Fish Maw With Hairy Gourd, Steamed Pork Ribs With Wolf-berries And Red Dates And Mind-Soothing And Hair-Protecting Soup Served With Quinoa Mixed Rice 
毛瓜焖鱼鳔,红枣枸杞蒸排骨,安神护发炖汤和藜麥配饭

I am usually not a fan of pork and chicken meat, but I don't know why the Steamed Pork Ribs w Wolfberries and Red Dates are totally my thing. The gravy is just yums it made me eat alot of rice! LOL!

SATURDAY DINNER (day8)
French Beans With Shimeji Mushroom, Baked Fillet Fish With Ginger Mirin Sauce And Pork Belly Black Pepper Soup With Wolfberry Served With Plain Rice
四季豆炒茶树菇,味醂香烤鱼柳,枸杞胡椒猪肚汤配白饭

If you do start to feel like you're seeing repeats, the menu repeats itself once for each 2 weeks meaning once for the set of traditional.meals and once for fusion meals. Not repeated exactly the same but a change in the soup paired with. So the most you're gonna have the same dishes are only once and after 7 days. To me it is already considered a very good variety of dishes since usually what confinement nannies cook are typically the same almost everyday. So this is a luxury!

SUNDAY LUNCH (day9)
Stir Fried Egg With Amaranth And Silver Bait Fish, Steamed Minced Pork With Chinese Yam And Wolfberries And Four Object Decoction Soup Served With Barley Millet Rice
银鱼苋菜炒蛋, 淮山枸杞蒸肉饼,四物汤配薏米小米饭

The pork dish and its gravy, again super good with rice. Yummeh!

FRIDAY DINNER (day14)
Steam Okra With Conpoy, Braised Chicken With Black Fungus And Angelica And Spleen Strengthening ABC Soup Served With Tri Colour Rice

Steamed Okra With Conpoy: Okras or Lady Fingers contain high amount of Beta Carotene which helps in improving eyesight and Vitamin C, A and K, which are all the properties that help rejuvenate mothers during confinement period.

Was there anything I disliked about Tian Wei and their confinement meals? No wor.. I really have nothing to complain about. Hehe. So far everything has been great..
