Guess The Bigger Portion In Bee Gaik

Bee Gaik is one of our favourite dining place, I like the food portions there, they don't come out in "gigantic" portions unless we request for it.   The other day when we went for dinner, we ordered these few dishes and we requested a BIG portion of one certain dish which we all love....

Guess which dish that we ordered for Big instead of normal...
Is it Kerabu Mango?
Claypot chicken?
Joo Hu Char.... a famous Hokkien dish or is it Cantonese?
(Shredded sengkuang wrappd with lettuce leaves)
I think it is a Hokkien dish since the name is in Hokkien...
I heard that the sengkuang taste better when cut by knife instead of shred...
Why is it so?  Any explanation?
And lastly, we ordered Crispy Fried Squids...
My kids enjoyed this Peranakan restaurant  very much...

So can you guess which dish we requested for Bigger Portion?
A small token will be given away for the correct answer
which will be picked by tomorrow night... :)

  2. Pretty sure of that because you'd once mentioned in your previous post.
    Crispy Fried Squids is the answer.

  3. My wild guess will be Joo Hu Char. Usually, we don't get enough to eat when is wrapped with lettuce. Really appetizing - crunchy and sweet juicy sengkuang.

  4. Yes, cut/chop the sengkuang in julienne strips thinly with knife is taste more crunchy and juicy than shred. But it takes more time.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've been looking at the photos and comparing the relative sizes from the other visible items that can be used as a benchmark and my answer will be:

    Joo Hu Char

    Also coz you photographed it twice instead of once and you wrote about it in more detail. Haha!

    I can see the kerabu mango plate in the background and it seems much larger than that too.

    Where is this place Reana?

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

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

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
