Secret Recipe

We stopped by Gurney Plaza on saturday afternoon.
Had a bit of a rest at Secret Recipe.

LC ordered a pumpkin soup.
She liked it, and thinks it nice.
i had a sip, but it had curry taste in it. ?

must be a local asian version of pumpkin soup.

Northam Cafe

Went with LC for dinner at this place.
The Northam Cafe.... its a hawker centre,
just opposite the Northam Hotel.
No trip to Penang Is complete without "Oh Chean"
fried osyters with egg and bater.
yummy

and ofcourse....... the ikan bakar !
we had a pari - sting ray

and something different.
i ordered a pork sausage.
not bad.

It started to rain, and so it was cooling.
i remembered the last time i was there a few years back,
it was soooooo hot, even at night.
so guess this time the timing was right.
and we enjoyed it.

Penang Hill

Woke up to beautifull weather on sunday morning.
This is a view from the 13th floor of The Royal Penang.
So off we went, checked out and to Penang Hill.

Once we reached there, we found the place packed !.
queued up for tickets, around 11.30am, and the next available time was
1.30pm

so we decided to wait for it, since we are there.
but it was a slow and yet packed like sardines 30 minutes ride up the hill.
and someone even farted ! half way up the hill......
:-(

Once up there, it was nice and cool.
we sat down for a nice lunch and relax a bit.

But the ride down was even more agonizing.....
waited in a queue for about 1 hour.
and again packed like sardines......
down the hill....

thank god this time no one farted in the train !
So, guess it will be for quite a while till the next trip up
Penang Hill.

Was trying out this shop's Bak Kut Teh on sunday with LC. 功夫肉骨茶

there are pictures showing the boss,...... some sort of
kung fu master.
Theres plenty of different versions, but we ordered the normal soup type.
Had a plate of vege 油菜 as well

Sg Besi *小小飯店 * 瓦煲蟹飯

1,Kampung Satu, Seksyen 93, Jalan Sungai Besi營業時間:11am-11pm休息時間:每逢星期二
總行:15-11, Lorong Syed Putra Kiri, KL休息時間:每逢星期一

Sg Besi *小小飯店 * 瓦煲蟹飯
瓦煲蟹飯味道鮮美引人垂涎當瓦煲飯和螃蟹配在一起,會變成甚麼呢?簡單得很,就是瓦煲蟹飯!雖然這間飯店叫做小小飯店,但是其實它一點也不小。而且負責人吳金保所推出瓦煲蟹飯,在隆市更是獨創的。從事飲食業多年的他當年就認為只有獨創的招牌菜,才能夠吸引顧客。於是他就不斷的研究並嘗試,終於讓他想到了瓦煲蟹飯。“我一直在想,瓦煲飯裡面還可以放些甚麼,而後就想到了肉蟹。螃蟹與飯一起焗,屆時螃蟹的鮮味就會融入飯中。”他更說,相信當時推出的時候應該就只有小小飯店一家。更是許多顧客光顧時必點的佳肴之一。每推出特別新菜色城市人用餐,講究的是菜上得要快、菜式選擇要多樣化。而上述這兩點小小都做到了。“除了招牌菜以外,多樣化的選擇讓顧客能在每次前往時嘗試不一樣的菜色。這樣顧客才不會覺得乏味。”吳金保還吩咐廚師每個月都必須推出別出心裁的新菜色,以吸引顧客。“如果顧客的反應好,我們當是新菜上市;如果反應不好,不用說,當然是被淘汰了。”除了今期推荐的佳肴外,老板還推荐,該店的菜園雞和杏香六寶,都是不錯的選擇。“我們所使用的雞皆是我們自己飼養的,有時還會供不應求呢。”至於杏香六寶,則是採用了6樣不同的青菜烹煮出來的。另外,這裡還有許多招牌菜都深受顧客喜愛,如泰國豬手、奶皇生蝦冬粉、炸大腸等等。吳金保也說,總店和分行的菜色基本上皆大同小異。不過兩店也各別推出了一些不一樣的特色小菜,所以不妨要求侍應生介紹吧!
瓦煲蟹飯─45至48令吉(視螃蟹的大小)瓦煲飯和螃蟹配在一起,就是這麼獨特的瓦煲蟹飯了。首先將螃蟹炒香備用,再加上之前已煲好的瓦煲飯一起焗至出味,這樣一來,螃蟹的鮮味都滲入飯中,更加美味。老闆說這道是這裡的招牌菜,前往光顧的客人十之八九都必點它。
脆藕蜜汁蝦將新鮮大明蝦炸至酥脆,爾後再淋上以蜜糖特制蜜汁,即使是用以點綴的蓮藕薄片,也一樣爽脆。為方便顧客食用,廚師已去掉明蝦中間部份的蝦殼。這也是小小新推出的菜色。(48令吉)
蜜汁叉燒以祖傳秘方“燒”出來的的蜜汁叉燒,讓人垂涎欲滴。老板還透露有不少顧客將之打包回家慢慢享用呢。(15令吉)
家鄉花腩煲看似簡單的花腩煲,但煮法卻一點也不簡單。以10種香料加上南乳,煮成香郁的醬汁。然後再加上馬鈴薯及挑選過的花肉,煮成花南煲。15令吉(小)
欖菜芥蘭─15令吉太多大魚大肉,偶爾也必須有些小菜來調合一下。老板將甘欖菜和肉碎一起爆香,然后再將之淋在已過油的芥蘭苗上,清香可口。

端午节


祝大家端午节快乐
每个人都会只想到 粽子!
a bit of history..........


公元前278年农历五月初五,楚国大夫、爱国诗人屈原听到秦军攻破楚国都城的消息后,悲愤交加,心如刀割,毅然写下绝笔作《怀沙》,抱石投入汨罗江,以身殉国。沿江百姓纷纷引舟竞渡前去打捞,沿水招魂,并将粽子投入江中,以免鱼虾蚕食他的身体。这一习俗绵延至今,已有两千多年


但是你们又知不知道还有另外一个传说..........


在中国的历史传统认为五月五日是恶月恶日,按照《易经》等典籍记载,阴恶从五而生,五月五日恰恰是阳气运行到端点的端阳之时,这种日子恶疠病疫多泛滥,因此,这一天人们便插艾叶、挂菖蒲、喝雄黄酒、配香囊等,以驱邪辟邪、保健健身。
