Kolok Mee Sarawak

Kolok Mee, is the Sarawak version of the Semenanjung's Wantan Mee, minus the black soya sauce. You have to go to Bau town (Kuching) to get the best one, the restaurant beside Ngiu Kee Family Store. My wife & me will vouch for it. In Semenanjung, I have not found any that is nice, all just normal, not like the one in Bau. Recently, my wife mentioned to me that in Kajang, a cafe named, Abang's Cafe has Kolok Mee similar to the one in Bau, but it is Halal...It is located at Taman Prima Sajuana, in front of Kamdar, same row as Kedai FDI FujiFilem...So those in Kuala Lumpur, try out the Halal Sarawak Kolok Mee at this place. I'll definitely try it when I get back to Malaysia soon. When my wife says it nice, it is nice..I know...so try it and if anyone has more places for us to check out, please write in to us we can go check it out...

Fish Head Curry / Kari Kepala Ikan

Kari kepala ikan,I have not seen outside of Malaysia, not too sure about in India or some place else, but people laugh when I tell them about the fantastic taste of the meat from the fish head.
I love the one from Stadium Merdeka, I don't think you'll need a GPS coordinates to get there, and also the one in Restaurant Kampung Pandan. Most of the other famous one are like: Kari Kepala Ikan Cheras, it used to be located just after the old Cheras Police station or the Jaya Jusco heading to Cheras, just as you pass the police station you will find a train track across the road, it will be just there, under a few big trees....There are some other "wannabes" but the few main one are as mentioned above...so especially on a Saturday or Sunday, when we can have a nap after lunch, a good lunch would be a Kari Kepala Ikan with family or friends......

Sweet and Sour Crabs

I just came back from Malaysia after 21 days of great food and time with my family. Incidentally, we went on a trip to Malacca to try out some of the Serani food there and came across something, the Sweet and sour crab at the Portuguese Settlement, Ujong Pasir at stall number 2, was the best we ever had in our lives. I am not writing this because I had  a free meal (I paid for the meal), but the gravy and the crab was excellent, compared to all the Chinese restaurants that we have had. I was surprise with the taste, and the crab were full of meat. Just as comparison, we went to Phuket the week before and there we had some crabs but it was only half filled meat, maybe the crabs were on diet before being caught. So go and try the one at stall number 2. Yes stall number 1 has the most customers, but we had our food at the next stall and it was good, especially the crabs. So head to Malacca and try it out. No Regrets...

Keluak Curry, One more Serani Favorite Dish



For those who knows how it taste, I bet you will be controlling your drool when looking at the picture....I know I did...
Since we are on the Eurasian dishes, another typical Serani dish, catching up with most Malaysian and Singaporean is the Keluak Curry. My wife just can't take it, so I would have to go on my own on this one. It will also be a test on my 4 girls, which of them has more of my taste buds than their mum's....
For this I've been reading about a place in Bandar Hilir, Melaka. I'll try out a few places next month and report back. 
For those food shifu's that is familiar and don't mind sharing, please speak out...

Is it Devil Curry or Debal Curry...??? Who cares...

I don't know about you, but I am just counting the days I can have all these again....
I been encouraging my wife to practice making the Devil curry so when I get back I can try it out.
but her question to me is, how is the actual taste of the Devil Curry, since we only know the taste from my mum's cooking.??? So for this, we will have to go back to the source, as a typical Eurasian, we will have to travel to Ujung Pasir Malacca or Melaka and test it out there. I been reading online and marked a few places to visit, Papa Joe's, 88 Restaurant and a few other Eurasian & Nonya restaurant before we can conclude.
So, again for those almighty wise ones, please share your taste buds with the rest of us so we too can enjoy some of the delights in life....

Satay..The Best.? Where.? Kajang or Jalan Peel.?















One of the most favorites we like to eat is SATAY. It is famous close by where we stay, Kajang. It is the most famous thing you can get from Kajang town. And one of the best and commercialize restaurant in Kajang is the Satay Kajang Haji Samuri  Restaurant, you can't miss it, the biggest one is adjacent with the Kajang Football stadium.I like it here, clean and fast service but the one you get from Queens Restaurant (Formerly known as Queens Hotel)  Jalan Peel, is equally or the best of all. It is rumored that this stall owner's uncle is the the very famous KL's satay shop owner, Majid Satay, formerly located at the Campbell complex food court...for those KL old timers, they will tell you about the old stories about Campbell Complex or Pertama Complex...So go try out both and tell us what you think is the best Satay in KL or maybe you know somewhere I don't know....For satay lovers, FYI...Penang does not have any good spots....I know my wife just loves the satay in Peel Road, every time we even come close to Peel Road (within 5 km radius) she will remind me to stop and get 50 sticks of satay...just to taste, her excuse is long time didn't eat the Peel road Satay...ok,  Enjoy...

The Best Bak Kut Teh


Bak Kut Teh is most liked by many people as a meal for breakfast and lunch. It is said that the origins of this dish is from Klang, Selangor. I love to have some during my next trip back to Malaysia. Both my wife and me love the one from Teluk Pulai (Claypot) Bah Kut Teh, Taman Intan Klang (You can't miss it, it right in front of the big parking lot, Lunch is packed, so come early)  She says that because it does not smells too much of the herbs, that why she likes it. I don't mind the smell. I have not had the privilege of trying the most famous shop in Klang, the one under the bridge known as Restaurant Seng Huat located at 9, Jalan Besar, Klang. I have the GPS coordinates on my gps machine all ready to launch, but never had a chance to do so. Just waiting for the chance one these days.
In Penang, in the mornings, you can get good Bak Kut Teh on Gurney Drive, just besides the Evergreen Hotel. It's very good to have Bak Kut Teh in the morning especially when you are planning to miss lunch...
There are a few other versions of Bak Kut Teh besides the regular one that comes with meat & soup, most probably because the cook forgot to take the pot off the fire and it dried up, the dry version was invented. The good one to try is at Yap Chuan Restaurant in Puchong. It is prepared by a young boy who happened to invent the dry version while helping his dad in the restaurant kitchen and never looked back.
So if anyone has another spot for me to check out, please write in....
