Flower Crab Noodles

 
 Guess what's hidden underneath the crab?

Last weekend I bought a packet of Koka noodles from Jaya Jusco, it was my first time buying this brand after hearing or should I say, reading so much about it in the blogs. Out of curiosity, I cooked it for tonight's dinner. My girl was most happy for she simply loves packet noodles unlike yours truly here.

To enhance the taste of the soup, I bought one "Flower Crab" as a condiment... to my shock, one crab alone cost RM6.60! I should put it back after weighing it... LOL... but haiyah, what the heck, once awhile, it wouldn't hurt to pay a bit more to enjoy to the fullest, right?

Here it is.... my bowl of Koka noodles with Flower Crab.....
My extra plate of greens to go with the bowl of noodles!
Normally I will cook the noodles separately from the soup...
With boiled water, I soak the noodles and let it soften...
Then I rinsed it with some cold running water....
And finally, put the noodles into the boiling soup....
Well, I guess this is the most expensive bowl of noodles I ever cooked at home....
No more Flower Crab next time though the soup was amazingly sweet!

  1. Ya, i did my noodles like the way you do it, to get rid of the wax or what. Never buy flower crab cos my son is allergy to it but with the black ones, he is ok. Funny. Wow, expensive the crab. I would rather buy char sio, meat & fish balls and fried an egg.

  2. So cheap, the crabs. Can't get those sea crabs here, not laku. Everyone prefers the mud crabs but those are so so expensive. I can't afford. Sobssss!!!! :(

    1. What flavour your noodles? Use prawns, one or two enough, will also make the soup really sweet and it is much cheaper too.

    2. My girl doesn't like prawns... I bought the chicken mushroom flavour.. nothing spicy... next time just put egg and fish balls and vege...

  6. Call me jakun, I was shopping at Jusco and weighed 2 pieces of (not very big) salmon, the cost close to RM30!! I wanted to put back after weighing (and the fella already put inside the plastic bag), but malu and scared kena curse, so die die put back in my basket and paid for it..

    The soup must be very sweet and tasty, yumm yumm.. What else you put together to boil with the crab? Chicken? Ribs? If you ask me to guess what's inside the bowl, I would guess vegetables, assorted balls and pork/fish slice.. Ngam ahh?

    1. You are no Jakun.. Salmon is expensive one... but there are two types.. one is around RM49 per kilo and one is RM55 or so... not so sure of the price exactly.. I always buy the cheaper type.. in fact I bought one last week, around 6 inches long, it cost only RM7 something only... maybe you chose the expensive type. :) Never mind, die die also eat and enjoy first.. hahahaa...
      No, nothing inside the bowl except for the crabs and vegetables!

    2. Ala, hehehehe.. Ask us to guess what's underneath and now say nothing pulak.. I thought I saw something like pork/fish slices.. One bowl full of goodness, I guess you guys slurped everything dry..

  9. Your last photo of the crab, vege and noodles really look like those sold in hotels for more than Rm30. Must taste great!
    Rm6.6 for a flower crab I think is okla not super expensive. Once a while enjoy more and eat like in hotel at home.

  10. I love all crabs whether soft shell crabs or black crabs. They are fragrant to make any soup and sauce sweeter! Lately my hands started to develop red itchy marks after eating crabs. I think old age is developing allergies for me! Sobs!

    Crabs are getting more expensive these days. Maybe we should start catching them ourselves from the swampy land.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
