A Hakka Meal Called Lui Char At Bukit Indah, Johor

ONE FINE MORNING, we went for a Hakka meal called Lui Char..  

Before I go on, "morning" in Johor means it is around 11am, so my breakfast is not breakfast and it is not lunch, thus the word brunch is the right word to emphasize the first meal of the day.

I don't know when my girl has a great liking for Lui Char all of a sudden... whenever we are in JB, she wants Lui Char.. Lui Char... and most times we go Taman Pelangi for that.  But this time we found one nearer to our home, the shop is at Jalan Indah 16/4, Bukit Indah, just opposite the Terengganu Curry Fish noodles.  It must be newly opened for we did not notice this shop before and now someone is glad that she can come here for her Lui Char whenever she feels like it.

A few tables were already occupied when we went in... and by the time we finished our meal, the tables were all occupied... That shows either the food is good or many of us now like Lui Char and that includes my son and my girl.  For me, just so-so, I don't mind taking once awhile...

Briefly, Lui Char is a Hakka comfort food of rice, grains and chopped greens...
Can be eaten with Yong Tau Foo and a green herbal mint or ground green tea... 
We ordered a small rice portion... 
She wanted brown rice while I opted for white rice... 
It should be the other way round, right? 
The rice is embedded beneath the fried peanuts, chopped long beans, 
cabbage, spinach and preserved radish.
For sidekicks, we ordered two Tau foo and some fried chicken..
If I am not mistaken, the fried chicken are marinated with fermented beancurd pieces... 
Some like to mix the soup and the rice together, making it soggy...
As for me, I like the dry version and sip the soup every now and then... 
Our Hakka meal which cost RM19... 
Nice and sort-of-healthy, right? :)

  5. Probably my ancestors were not authentic Hakka cos my grandparents had never prepared any Lui Char for us in any of the meals before. The lui char dishes looks very simple.

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...
