Kitchen Stories To Share

SUNDAY COME LUNCH, WE WENT TO TAMAN JOHOR JAYA which was around thirty minutes away from where we stayed.  I have eaten once before in that shop but I heard that they have changed owners.  Yes, even the name has changed, now it is called Kitchen Stories.... what an interesting name.  I suppose each of the dish has its story to tell and I wonder what the chef has to say about them in the kitchen.  hehehee...

I was told that this place is famous for their porridge, Teochiw porridge to be exact.  But I being a Teochew, I had not eaten porridge like this before.  My kind of porridge is plain and has to go with condiments.  This porridge sold here is like boiled rice with soup...
The rice soaked with Pomfret...
A closer look at the treasures beneath...
And to go with the porridge, we ordered these dishes...
Fried bitter gourd with eggs...
Stewed Kam Cham ...
Not sure what this is called in English... 
Stewed Pork Knuckles...
I like the sauce.. kind of sweet... and sour....
But I did not taste this... I prefer them "not fried"...
Young spinach I love... 
Yellow chicken... 
Steamed... I like...
Silky smooth steamed eggs with minced meat...
There were another two more dishes... 
Fried beancurd and spring roll..
By the time they came out, I was busy eating and had no time for photo taking...
The total cost came to around RM200 for the 8 of us.

  4. Corn-fed chicken, so very much nicer than the regular ones but rumour has it that some sellers here use kunyit to get the yellow colour, so terrible those business people!!! Excuse me, gotta go out now - to the market, to get one pork leg. No prize for guessing what we're having at home today. Hehehehehe!!!

  5. Yum yum.

    My idea of Teochew porridge is plain porridge with condiments at side. The fish porridge looked good.

    I used to eat a lot of fish porridge as kid. But as grown up, I prefer pork or chicken porridge. Hehe

  7. Kam Cham = Enoki mushroom lah. But the ones in your picture, looks like quite thick...

    Chef tell story in the kitchen? Usually chefs only scold and swear in the kitchen one. Maybe he went "This f**king spinach dish, that f**ker sifu of mine taught me one. He was an a**hole I tell you, he train me until I almost die..."

    1. Kam Cham mushrooms are enoki mushrooms. These are not mushrooms. These are real kam cham - dried lily buds or golden needles.

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
