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.

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

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

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
