Jing Xuan Hong Kong Dim Sum Damansara Jaya

Well, this photo have been in my harddisk for sometime and I hardly have time to blog about it.

Few months back, I decided to go Genting to have some gamble and thus I meet up with one of my friend who is on the way to Genting to snap some photo for competition. Before we depart we decided to have early dim sum in Damansara Jaya.

Rather than opt to the conventional Hong Kee Dim Sum, we decided to have a try on Jing Xuan Hong Kong Dim Sum. Well, the crowd was quite reasonable as it was an public holiday when I visited the shop. It wasn't as crowded as Hong Kee Dim Sum.

Well, patron have to order the dim sum based on the menu given before they steam it. However there is also some waiter walking around with trays of dim sum for us to pick.

Well, this is what we order for 2 person.

Pan Fried Gua Zhi, Fried carrot cake, Fried yam (Wu Gok)

Pau, Porridge and Char Siew Pau (photo in friend camera)

Review : The dim sum standard is as good as Hong Kee Dim Sum. The dim sum size is quite big and very easy to feel full... Less oily compare to others dim sum shop. Personally i like their Siew Mai the most because it was really compact, tender and springy...The taste of the Siew Mai is also very unique and I like it. The pan fried dumpling (Guo Zhi) taste a bit bland but very juicy inside. Beware when you eat this because the filling inside the thin skin is super duper hot...and the juicy meat can easily burn your tongue....Well, I kena slight burn because too 'tam chiak'....

Conclusion, it was worth the money you spent and Jing Xuan and Hong Kee is at par in term of their service, pricing and food quality

Ajitei Japanese Cuisine @ Plaza Singapore

Hoho Merry Chrismas... Everyone is in holiday mood...
After a busy week... It's time to treat myself with a great meal...
I was told to meet up at "Wei Jing" (in Mandarin) in Plaza Singapura. I was thinking it probably will be serving us with Ajinomotos... After exploring around for the location, I realised that I got the name wrong it was known as "Wei Ting" ... lol...

Instead of getting ramen, we added some twist by ordering a pattaya, cheese baked rice and curry. But first presenting to you Gyoza Wafu, 5 pieces of very hot "jiazi"... wahaha... Nothing very special.
Then comes the Mr salmon (Grill Salmon Fin). The display was interesting with the head and fin. It seems as if the fish was grilled when it was diving into the Atlantic ocean... The fish was kind of fresh and it is crunchy... Pretty nice for a fish head lover...
Then comes the pattaya. To me it really looks like nasi pattaya or omurice. But actually there's no rice in it. Hiding inside the net of mayonnaise, BBQ sauce and fried eggs was my favour, slices of cabbage. If you are vege lover, an equation of vege+mayonnaise+fried eggs = the feeling of salad...haha

Finally comes the Yaki Seafood. It seems like cheese baked rice, but on top of it there is mix of curry in the rice. It is not very spicy and it tastes very nice together with the cheese and prawns. Best of all, it is quite reasonable at the price of $6.80. If you dont want seafood, can try out Yaki Chicken which is a dollar cheaper with chickens.

Overall, we enjoy our meal. the environment is quite so pretty awesome to chat. Average per person spending is $13. Other than these, they also have varieties of dessert as well, and rumours said it's not bad.
Mojo signing off harkau siewmai's expedition.

Ma Lat Lou Kitchen - Episode 1

Hi guys....

Since I am sick and I have nothing much to do, I am thinking of teaching everyone how to cook using the Ma Lat Lou Style (Single Guy Kitchen).

Every time when we fall sick, our mom will cook us porridge which is tasteless and boring. Today I am going to teach you how to make porridge taste yummy but healthy too.

Today menu is : Century Pork Porridge. I just cook it few minutes ago so I better upload it before I lose my blogging mood.

Plain Rice
Mince Pork
China Salted Vegetable
Century Egg
Salt and pepper
Soy Sauce
Fried shallot and spring onion for garnishing

1. Firstly, boil the plain rice with 1.2 litre of water. Let it boil for 7 minutes

2. Chop the carrot and chunk it into the boiling hot porridge
3. If you want a soupy porridge do not stir it, but if u like porridge that is thick and sticky just like what i love, keep on stirring after you put in the carrot.
4. Marinate the pork with soy sauce and pepper.
5. After about 5 minutes and the porridge is almost cook, put in the mince pork.

6. Soak the China Salted Vegetable for few minutes to wash away any sand or dirt
7. Chunk in the salted vegetable
8. Slice the century egg
9. After about 15 minutes of cooking, slower the fire and put in the slice century egg
10. Cook it for another 3 minutes and add in salt and pepper for flavoring. Remember eat less salt...
11. You can enjoy your porridge with garnishing of fried shallot and spring onion if you want.

Here is the nice and healthy porridge with no oil added. Enjoy

Eat-zy Teowchew Porridge & Rice

It was a sin for us not to update the blog for such a long time....Sorry for those loyal reader for such a long wait....All the blogger is busy with their exam that ended on Wednesday....So i guess, let put an end to the sleeping blog...

I am sick this few days and have been eating porridge for the pass few days....

That remind me of my porridge experience in Eat-zy Teowchew Porridge at Jalan SS14/2. Teowchew Porridge is a plain porridge eaten with some side dishes which is normally salty in nature...

Famous side dish will be salted egg, salted vege, salted fish, and fried egg with 'choi po' (salted white carrot)

Last month when I first visited Eat-zy Teowchew Porridge, I was make known that they serve one of the best teowchew porridge in the town...They have variety of porridge ranging from plain porridge, taro porridge, sweet potato porridge and unpolished rice porridge.

I order plain rice (because i feel hungry very fast if eat porridge) and 3 side dishes. I have the bean curd with mince pork, salted vegetable (Szechuan vegetable) and pork patty with salted fish...

Beside that they also offer other side dish that I do not oder such as steam fish, variety of green vegetable, preserve vegetable, braised egg, braised pig intestine, and the list go on...

So if you are in SS14, why not you stop by and have a try....

Sorry for the blur picture but you can check out other blogger for the same recommendation
