Dim Sum At Maxim, Sungai Ara, Penang

IT WAS A SATURDAY MORNING WHEN WE DROPPED BY AT MAXIM dim sum shop at Sungai Ara... My girl suggested this place in fact, I, for one, had forgotten all about this place.  Looking back through my posts, it was in 2013 when we last came here as a family, more than two years ago...

Maxim at Lebuh Pekaka 1, Sungai Ara... 
,,,,deemed to be one of the best Dim Sum in the island? 
It was around 11am plus when we reached there... 
And my girl wasted no time to collect the goodies from the dim sum section... 
Her favourites... and after eating, they become mine too..
Crusty pastry and the egg fillings is soft and tasty....
I took one of these....
I prefer the chives dumplings... 
I was surprised my girl got these for me... 
These are not bad too... 
Squarish fish "balls"
Did we manage to finish them all... 
Phew... we didn't actually... some went to the doggy bag.... 
I wanted to try their Wanton noodles... 
I remember loving the taste of them in 2013.. 
hahahaha...
And their giant dumplings... 
And not to be forgotten, this plate of steamed flat noodles with seabass... 
Not oily at all... can be eaten even when we are not feeling well....
And the address of Maxim...
Total cost came to around RM43...
Not too bad...
We managed to finish them all during our supper!

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...
