Vietnamese Bah Chang

It is lunch time now, I didn't go out for my food, instead I spent my time poring over the pictures I have taken during my one month vacation... and thanks to yours truly here, I "tortured" myself by putting up these....

Guess what this is... 
It only cost $2.50...
And worth every cent of it!
Yes, this is Vietnamese Ba-wan. (sticky rice dumpling)
something like our local Bah Chang..
Theirs are squarish.. ours are tetrahedron in shape...
The ingredients are pretty much the same...
Yellow beans with chunks of meat... 
and how do they taste??
er... er... 
I guess I have to go there one more time ...
and let you know How they taste like...
hopefully in 2014... 
*big grin*


  1. Should taste pretty ok...but I think our Cantonese pillow-zhang would be more to our taste - something like lor mai kai.

  2. oh never know Vietnamese have bah chang also.

  3. I call that pillow zhang. Still much much prefer our very own nyonya bak chang.Yummy!!!Yummy!!!....

  4. I always like this type of dumpling. My favourite is this type of white colour with lots of beans one. I could get this type of dumpling at Ipoh, outside Fu San Dim Sum on Sunday. It was sold at RM7 each.

  6. Gosh so cheap! Looks like our Cantonese "cham thau" (pillow) bakchang.

  7. so I can get this in Vietnam. I am going next yr,ehheheheh

  8. I like bah chang...I don't know that vietnam have bah chang. I always thought that this is a chinese food.

  9. stp: lor mai kai is more stickier than bah chang..maybe the latter doesnt have chicken in it. :)

    WK: KATHHHHHHY!!!!!!!!!!!

    vicky: i also didnt know till then...

    irene: i havent really try the nyonya ones..

    yan: that is Central.. yes, famous since those days..but i seldom buy from there... I like those from Penang... pillow ones..

    gratitude: this is squarish unlike our pillow rectangular shape.. :)

    ling: do check them out .. see got or not.. :)

    andrew: me too.. maybe they do theirs over there at the States..

  10. hope this excites u...

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
