Kitchen Stories For Four

KITCHEN STORIES FOR US FOUR...

We made our way to Taman Johor Jaya, it was nearly an half hour drive to this part of the area.  The last time I came to Kitchen Stories shop was in April last year.  This shop is famous for their Teochew dishes, the name has changed not too long ago for the old couple has retired and now the business is taken over by the younger generation.  It is a good thing to preserve the authenticity of the food, coming from the Teochew clan.  Not many youngsters are into this type of hand-me-down food nowadays, they are more into the new concept, cafes and fusion.

For oldies like me, I still prefer to go to "olden" kind of food and dishes and these were what we ordered when we went there during a weekday.  It was almost 2pm and by the time we finished our lunch, the shop was going to close for the day. :)
So they have recommendations for the day... 

The menu on the wall if one is not sure what to order.... 
The crowd was still there even though it was already 2pm... 
Specially requested for this Drunken chicken... Lor Mai Jau... 
VERY BEST!! 
*if there is such an expression!*
Bitter gourd with eggs... 
Claypot porridge with fresh fish....
Something like this..... 
Spinach to balance up... 
This is special... Shrimp Roll.. very crunchy and nice!
Homestyle Pork Trotters to boost up collagen... and cholesterol? 
LOL.... 
Lunch for the four of us with the above dishes came to around RM103... 
Not too bad.. I would love to go again for the Drunken Chicken anytime!

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...
