Our Szechuan Breakfast In Chin's

The next morning breakfast was taken in Chin's Szechuan restaurant again, it was a Sunday and they served something special, something like dim sum with a dash of szechuan style here and there... I was looking forward to tasting something new again ... having Szechuan dim sum in San Diego... lol...
A more brighter look of Chin's restaurant
unlike the other night, it was a candle lit dinner...
I guess the people here don't fancy chinese food so much...
Only one table was occupied..and that was US from Malaysia... lol...
the Captain who is my sister's friend ordered these for us...
starting with a appetizer... 
a plate of cold dish...chicken, beef.. vegetables...etc...
steamed "mini-dragon"dumplings...
BBQ dumplings...something like ours here...
rice dumplings (tong yuen) but cooked in savoury style with beaten eggs...
I still prefer them to be cooked our way.. sweet and not saltish......
this is a common one... yau char kwai
but...
 it has to be taken together with this pancake like this...
and it become like this here...
with the crispiness of the combination, it was very nice...
I call it a Chinese Hot Dog style.. hahaha...
then we had these.... glutinous rice with chicken floss and "yau char kwai" again!
something I haven't  tasted before...
fried pancake... I forgot how the taste is like already.. but I know it is not sweet...
fried "nin koe" flat noodles...
the local ladies in charge.. lol....
many thanks to them for their recommendation
and giving us the treat!
I love traveling in a group, we can get to know so many people
from all around the world but there are many who love to travel alone
on a single holiday, there are much things to explore as well...
After the heavy breakfast, we left for the two hours ferry cruise...
I thought it was time to have a nap... cruising normally makes me sleepy...
But I was surprised that it was not what I expected....
stay tuned...

  6. Business so poor kah? Looks certainly different from usual dim sum. As long as it is nice, no problem. Over there, eating out, of course, not cheap lah?

  9. The dim sum looks quite different from ours. Fried pancake looks like our "hong choi piah" (a type of mooncake)

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
