Moon Kee (Section 17) Fishhead and Seafood Noodles

Ahhh… Fish Head Noodles again! You’d think I’d be sick of it by now having cooked the same dish several times for the last couple of weeks just so I can share a good recipe with you. I don’t even remember the last time I’ve actually visited a “Kopitiam” for Fish Head Noodles, but when…

MFF KL Selangor: Fish Head (Fillet) Noodles

Sunday afternoon, alone at home, knackered from all the exciting activities all week (catering for 50 pax is probably something I will think harder before committing next time), what better than a soothing bowl of noodles with soup? That was my lunch today and it sure hit all the right spots. This is something that…

NOSH Ramadan/Merdeka Special Menu

NOSH nosh/näSH/ Noun: Food. Verb: Eat food enthusiastically or greedily: “you can nosh to your heart’s content”; “noshing my favourite food”. Synonyms: food – chow – grub Ooh, what a clever word to use as the name of a restaurant. Succinct and appropriate for this cozy little nook on Jalan Telawi 3. Before I even…

Ramadan Buffet Dinner at Tonka Bean Cafe, Impiana Hotel

The whole town is now gearing up for the upcoming Ramadan month and not surprisingly; hotels and restaurants alike are starting to promote their Ramadan specials. You know what this means: Buffet galore! Ironically, Ramadan is all about fasting but when the Muslims break their fast, many choose to do it in style. Which is…

Hosting with PlateCulture: My Very Own Supper Club!

Picture this: One fine day, I’m consulting patients in my private clinic. After the last patient has left, I drove to my own restaurant where I’ll watch over my team of fabulous Chefs putting together beautiful dishes and if I feel like it, I put on the apron and make a few dishes too. When…

Sabah MFF: Tuaran Mee

The first time I’ve ever heard about Tuaran Mee was through a random conversation with my band’s keyboadist, who’s from Sabah. One thing that I’ve always been proud of is that our band represents 1 Malaysia, though that’s a story for another day I guess. Anyway, I did a little research and found Terri’s recipe…

Sabah MFF: Hinava (Kadazan Dusun Fish Salad)

This month, the Malaysian Food Fest takes us to Sabah, the other Malaysian state on our beloved Borneo Island. Although we were pretty much neighbours, the only experience I’d had with Sabah was a brief stopover at Kota Kinabalu airport many many moons ago. So unfortunately I haven’t had authentic Sabahan cuisine yet. What I…

Sarawak Laksa with Salmon

So the General Election has finally drawn to a close. Most Malaysians would have been glued to the social media sites/TV/Radio following the poll counting and some have been feeling disappointed with how it all unfolded. Regardless of the outcomes, don’t despair. I have a song for you. Never give up. Just gotta keep trying….

Ayam Percik Kelantan (MFF Kelantan)

As promised, I’m back with a recipe. And this one is a doozy, featuring one of the most versatile protein, chicken. Specifically, the thighs (well, legs). The breast lovers can divert your attention now (or make the substitution if you want). There must be over a hundred way to cook Chicken thighs, even in Malaysia…

Roti Jala (Lacy Net Crepes) with Vegetable Curry

Oh my! I have not been so knackered for a long time (equivalent to about 3 x 14 hours shift in the hospital I think)! The 2-day Future Music Festival Asia partying has really worn me out but I’ve never had so much fun. Will blog about it soon. It’s funny how the first time…
