I’m back (like finally) to update on this dead space =P

May I share some nice food with you guys again =]

I went to try out this Nasi Lemak Kukus Chef Fauzey lately after it was showcased on Astro AEC under Axian Food Adventures. Basically it is a simple Food Truck located behind of The Old Jalan Othman Bus Station, PJ Old Town. A good landmark would be the UOB Bank Jalan Othman.

So what’s the hype about it? Chef Fauzey originally worked in 5-star hotel for 10 years before he started his own food truck business. He is famous for serving Nasi Lemak Kukus and his very own Nasi Lemak Kukus Goreng, the latter caught my attention as I have never come across such combination.

The idea of Nasi Lemak Kukus Goreng came from the request of his patron, since then he has been challenging himself to fork out with a good plate of Nasi Lemak Kukus Goreng. The difficulty of dishing out a good plate of Nasi Lemak Goreng is the coconut milk in the rice would cause it easily stick up and burnt. After rounds of modifying the recipe and adopting different cooking techniques, he has finally came up with the well-known Nasi Lemak Kukus Goreng.

The Nasi Lemak Kukus Goreng is bursting with flavour and perfectly cooked with the chinese cooking technique “wok hei”. The sambal that he used to fry the nasi lemak kukus act as flavour booster resulting a robust and rich spice flavour plate of Nasi Lemak Kukus Goreng.

I love the simplicity of the Nasi Lemak Kukus has it has a light creamy flavour accompanied with sweet-spicy sambal, I will prefer my sambal to be a little bit more spicy though. The kick comes in when you mix it with the Ayam Berrempah or Udang Berrempah. Simply awesome!

Nasi Lemak Kukus Chef Fauzey opens everyday except on the second and forth Monday. The queue could be real long on the weekend.

Home Cooked Dishes Guang Xi Delicacies at Restoran Leng Loong Seafood, Equine Park

Guangxi cuisine is light, but not as light as Cantonese food; it is spicy, but not as spicy as Sichuan cuisine. I found this new seafood restaurant serving Guang Xi delicacies at Equine Park.

Leng Loong Homemade Noodles

The chef sourced the homemade noodles all the way from Lenggong for his signature noodle dish. The noodles are alkaline-free and has a bouncy texture. The chef dish the noodles out with pork, prawns and choy sum in his very own dark brown sauce. The pork lards topped on the noodles add in more flavour to the noodle and keep us addictive to it. It is best paired with the Leng Loong special chili sauce that add in a garlicky spicy flavours.

Leng Loong Kong Xi Claypot Fish

A medium size red snapper were halved and steamed in the claypot. The claypot act as a steam-baked agent retaining the juices of the fish to bind with the superior soya sauce. The fish is sweet and tender in texture.

Kong Xi Tau Pok

I’m never a Tau Pok person as I don’t like the texture of it. However, the stuffing of minced pork, diced prawns and chives cooked in the clear broth caught me addictive to it. Probably I will buy in this time.

Kong Xi Rice Wine Claypot Chicken

Wine is a must when treating the guests for the Guang Xi people. The usage of Fa Tiew wine in their dishes has created their signature dishes with great aroma and flavours out of it. In a way, the chicken pieces were lightly stewed in loads of Chinese red wine to ensure the infusion of flavours. I simply love this dish and its a great food during the cold weather.

Kong Xi Fried Pork

One of the star of the lunch would be the Kong Xi Fried Pork. The boneless pork chop were well marinated with Nam Yu, it’s such a succulent food with robust flavour, good stuff! Warning alert, Highly ADDICTIVE!

 photo 6_zpsepmqgpo3.jpg

Kong Xi Stir Fried Stinky Beans

Not a fan of stinky beans but I can see that it was decently sauteed with minced pork in the spicy sambal sauce.

Golden Salted Egg Prawn

Everyone knows how much I love prawns and this Golden Salted Egg Prawn is simply perfect for me. To stand out from others, the chef decided to get a rougher sandy texture to coat on the prawns for the extra crunchiness. Surprising the rough texture adds in extra flavours to it during the biting.

Asam Steamed Talapia

We were greeted with the O-shape mouth Talapia fish and everyone busy taking a photo of it, you don’t see this often right. The gravy is delicate, spicy and savoury at time with long beans, egg plant, onion etc in it. This reminds me of the Asam steamed fish in the Northern.

Old Cucumber Boiled Soup

The much soothing Old Cucumber Boiled Soup were served to end the meal and to sooth our stomach after all the dishes.

A delicate Salmon Sashimi Yee Sang with homemade plum sauce will never go wrong, Lou Hei Lou Hei, Fung Sang Shui Hei!

Double Boiled Sun Dried Seafood Soup with Pigeon

I’m always anticipated with the soup served in Ee Cuisine. The chef will never let me down with their much nourishing double boiled soup. The consommé was real flavourful after going through long hours of double boiling. There’s fish maw, sea cucumber, scallop, chicken slice and morel mushrooms in it.

Oven Baked Live Oyster with Cheese

A little twist from the traditional Chinese New Year dishes, the chef decided to go fusion this round. Chef has incorporate eggs and fresh oyster and topped with cheese sauce prior to the oven. The taste is much more savoury and easier to accept for those who don’t take raw oyster

Poached Capon Traditional Style

Back to basic, the capon was smoked after the poaching process. The chicken meat was firm, moist and tender. What I love most was the chef special chilli sauce that add in the kick to the chicken meal.

 photo 7_zps4b08f50a.jpg

Baked Cod Fish with Egg Caviar

The flaky cod fish were pan-fried leaving a caramelized crust prior to the baking process in the oven. It was served on a bed of egg white and caviar which further enhance the dish. The egg whites add in texture while the caviar enhances the fish flavour of the dish. I love the baked cod as the juice of the fish was sealed in it; however the caramelized part is a little too sweet for my liking.

Braised Cabbage with Eight Treasures

 photo 9_zps98f863dd.jpg

The braised cabbage with eight treasures looks plain at the first sight. But when it was cut off, we were impressed with the 8 types of ‘treasures’ in it. This pretty dish symbolizes better health and wealth. The cabbage was steamed prior to the stuffing of the ingredients. There were scallops, dried oyster, mushrooms, salted egg, lotus seeds, prawns, sea cucumber and chestnut in it.

 photo 10_zpsfcdfc15d.jpg

Fried Rice with Seafood and Rice Crackers

We were literally wow-ed when the fried rice was served on the table. We have never expected seafood fried rice could be done this way. Chef has incorporate three different types of texture into the ordinary friend rice, from fish roe, prawns bites to crunchy rice crackers. This beautifully crafted fried rice was a great surprise indeed

Double Boiled White Fungus, Gingko and Hasma served with Sweet Duet

The dessert of the night was none other than the nourishing Double Boiled White Fungus, Gingko and Hasma. Hasma is good for clearing lungs and skin, not for asthma patients though.

 photo 12_zps0eef86c5.jpg

The surprise continues at the dessert part, the crispy thin pastry with durian stuffing is the star of the night for durian lovers. As compared to the crispy sticky rice cakes beside it, it tasted less sweet.

Chinese New Year Feast with the Authentic Teochew Cuisine at Pak Loh Chiu Chow, Starhill Gallery

I have tasted numerous Cantonese CNY dishes but Teochew Style, that’s new. Chef Alex from Pak Loh Chiu Chow has designed the CNY dishes focusing on the Teochew cooking techniques and flavours in it.

Teochew cuisine originated from the Chaoshan region in the east of Guangdong province. Teochew cuisine is particularly well known for its seafood and vegetarian dishes and is commonly regarded as being healthy. The flavouring of the dishes is much less heavy-handed than other Chinese cuisine. Teochew cuisine emphasizes on steaming, braising and poaching as well as stir-frying.

Classic Chiu Chow Yee Sang with Glass Carp

The Teochew Yee Sang is very different from the ordinary Yee Sang, Teochew people have it couple of times during the year instead of just CNY itself. There’s basil leaves,radish, chilli, ginger, coriander leaves, leek, garlic slices, jelly fish, preserved radish and peanuts. Chef choses the signature Teochew raw fish fresh Grass Carp slices and Blue Ginger Sesame Oil to pair with the yee sang. The Teochew style Yee Sang set to incorporate spicy, earthy, sweet and salty in it. The Teochew “Lo Hei” is more tidy and quitter and elegant than the ordinary one.

Double-boiled Shark Fin Soup with Marcella

Teochew people regard themselves as one of the first who savours shark fin soup. Teochew cuisine regularly use the superior broth for the base, the broth is boiled 8 hours prior serving. Generous amount of shark fins coupled with chicken pieces and delicious tasting morel mushrooms found in the bowl of soup. The intense flavor caught me addicted to it.

Steamed Jade Fish with Preserved Vegetables, Tomatoes and Sour Plum

First time having the Jade Perch fish, it has a firm, pearly white flesh and silky crumbly texture that easily falls away from the large bones. The browth from teochew steamed fish is much more delicate,savoury and smooth than the ordinary one we had locally. Even the tomato slices are well infused with the flavours from the broth. If you have notice the cute carrot carving served along the fish, teochew chef take pride in their skills of vegetable carving, which deeply impressed us during the dinner.

Classic Crab Meat Ball with Vegetable and Mushroom

Fresh prawns were minced and punch into a springy paste and added with crab meat, water chestnut, coriander leaves and mushrooms. It was shaped into a Sycee shape and topped with caviar. Mouthful of sweet prawns and water chestnut flavours with richly buttery sea taste burst in your mouth.

Braised Pig’s Trotter with Black Moss with Vegetables

As I have mentioned above, the braising cooking technique is widely use in the Teochew community. I have to admit that this Pork Trotter braised in Abalone jus was a blast. Leaving the fattening though aside, the abalone jus were cooked 9 hours prior to the 2 hours braising process. The texture of the pork trotter is so damn delicious and tender accompanied with sweet savoury abalone black moss sauce. I can have two bowls of rice with this dishes itself.

 photo 6_zpsb6de3e01.jpg

Braised Assorted Fungus with Vegetables

Something different from the ordinary braised oyster vegetable dishes, Chef Alex served us the traditional Teochew vegetable dishes. There’s 8 ingredients in this dishes including fresh lily bulb, Yu Yi (a type of fungus), Nai Bak, Black Moss, Dried Oyster, broccoli, water chestnut and mushroom. Yu Yi has a crunchy texture as compared to the normal mushroom used in the dishes.

Fried Chinese Glutinous Rice Cake Chiu Chow Style

The fried glutinous rice cake topped with prawns and baby oyster with Shacha sauce was so good! The glutinous rice cake made of Glutinous Rice flour, Potato Starch and Corn Starch were fluffy and gluy. The prawns and baby oyster add in additional texture to this dish. The Shacha which is made from soybean oil, garlic, shallots, chillies, brill fish and dried shrimp has a savoury and slightly spicy taste. It’s similar to carrot cake but definitely a more savoury and addictive one.

 photo 8_zps0d3876c0.jpg

Double-boiled Sesame Dumpling served with Ginger and Candy Sheet Broth

The dessert of the night is sesame Glutinous Rice ball and ginger potatoes in ginger soup. The earthy and heartwarming spicy soup warms up the body in the cold weather. My first time trying ginger potatoes, it looks pretty much similar to Huai Shan and is good for our stomach, lungs and liver.

There’s two Chinese New Year set menu for your liking or you may order from the A La Carte Menu. My personal recommendation will be Steamed Jade Fish, Braised Pig Trotters and Fried Glutinous Rice Cake, now my stomach rumbling again for these dishes! These Chinese New Year dishes will be available from 19th January until 5th March 2015.

Pak Loh Chiu Chow is open daily from 12 noon to 11pm. You may contact at +603-27823856 and for reservation.
