It was a Monday and I was around Mount Austin during lunch time looking for something to eat. As a lot of restaurants have sprung up around the water park, this was prime ground to go restaurant hunting. I settled on Tabushi Ramen which is just behind Sushi Zento.
Sushi Zento in Mount Austin is one of my favourite places to go for Japanese food in JB. In comparison to Kampachi (check out my review here), the food quality is quite on par, but the prices are cheaper than Kampachi – and that’s a very good thing!
Heaven must be like a rich butter cake still warm from the oven. In this post, I would like to show you how to bake a very easy cake for your mum this Mother’s Day. It may be simple yet it is a feast for the eyes and the palate.
A clear and healthy corn soup is a wonderfully easy one-pot meal. This one is made with chicken bones and results in a sweet and clear soup. If you have pork bones, do try my ABC soup recipe instead.
Anne Elizabeth, A Deli Restaurant in Cheras?!! I’m as shocked as the next Cheras kia. Finally, someone sees the potential for unique western dining experiences here in this chinese-food dominated part of KL South. *Does a happy dance*
Lemon chicken is a firm favourite at chinese restaurants. Eaten paired with rice, the tangy sauce neutralizes the oily aftertaste of the deep fried chicken. I find it’s great to be able to recreate such food at home 😀
I’ve tried many recipes over the years for Hainanese Chicken Chop but this is the one I come back to time and again. The taste truly reminds me of my childhood and KL’s Yut Kee, a place that serves the best ever Hainanese Chicken Chop.
Bagels are something rarely sold in Malaysian bakeries. And if I do find them, they are ridiculously expensive. This recipe I’m sharing is super easy, and it uses only a few basic ingredients too.
Making bread in Malaysian weather following bread recipes meant for dry cool weather can be tricky. In our hot and humid climate, all those timings for proofing bread can be thrown straight out the window onto the nearest coconut tree. And it can stay there.
Tong Yuen, or glutinous rice balls are a staple during our family’s winter solstice celebrations (dong zhi). My grandmother will always remark that after we have eaten tong yuen during dong zhi, we are a year older (and wiser, hopefully).
I was watching a show the other day and they were talking about Hamburg Steaks. It made me incredibly hungry. So hungry, in fact, that I couldn’t get it out of my mind and really really had to make it the very next day! That’s the power of good cinematography!
Call it what you will – Turnip / Daikon / Radish / Carrot cake, this is a must-have for me whenever I have dim sum. However restaurants skimp on the fillings so it is more rice flour than anything else. You know it’ll be disappointing when you’re served a smooth white cake.
I always found Italian tomato sauce based pasta to be either too sour, or too bland. I’ve always been used to a certain taste when it comes to tomato sauce based dishes, thanks to the way my mum doctors her baked beans to make them extra tasty.
