Perak MFF: Kampar Beef Brisket Noodles

I have a thing for beef noodles soup. I think it’s great that every culture (and in Malaysia’s case, almost every region) have their own take on a beef soup recipe. Needless to say, I have a soft spot for a really good bowl of pho, but since we live in a country with so…

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…

KL Selangor MFF: Chilli Pan Mee

The final leg of Malaysian Food Fest see us at the most densely populated Klang Valley and not surprisingly, offers one of the largest range of cuisines. Having lived here for 3 years, I can honestly say that you can get pretty much anything here in KL/Selangor (even the latest craze Cronut… named KLonut here)….

Penang MFF: Char Kueh Tiaw

I have only been to Penang a handful of times and all I remember (with the exception of most recently trip when we just went in and out for a gig) was how much I ate each time. But I’ll say my very first trip there back in 2009 was the most “filling”. Here are…

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…

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….

Vietnamese Rice Noodles Salad with Salmon (Bun Ca)

Having done the 2 Salmon with noodles posts (Japanese and Italian), I thought I’ll follow up with yet another version featuring the 2 great ingredients. Ms I-Hua suggested that I should try a salad version, hence this dish was born. Taking a great traditional Vietnamese recipe, and refresh it with some lovely pan-fried Salmon. The…

Ang Jiu (Foochow Red Wine) Chicken Soup with Mee Sua

A break from the fishy posts (though I’m glad you like the recipes) and here I present the ultimate comfort food: Chicken Soup. Not just your regular Chicken boiled with ginger and mushrooms, but with homemade Foochow Red Wine. That’s right, the bright hue might be a little confronting but most Sarawakians (or Sitiawan foochows)…

Teriyaki Salmon and Yaki Udon (Fried Udon Noodles)

I might have mentioned before that Salmon is my favourite fish. It’s not only healthy with choke full of Omega 3 fatty acids, a good source of protein, high level of vit D (good for your bones), it’s also super versatile. You don’t really have to do too much to the already flavourful flesh. Usually…
