阜杭豆漿 @ Taiwan

2010-06-13T16:58:55.723+08:00

『参阅台湾行程』

好多台湾老早餐店都卖紧类似嘅嘢,呢间52年历史嘅阜杭豆漿都唔例外。坐落喺善导寺站正对面嘅华山市场,听讲五点几就已经排嗮长龙。传统嘅吃法係厚烧饼夹蛋配一碗咸豆浆,但係我地就点咗普通豆浆配薄烧饼油条夹蛋(20NT+38NT+10NT),都好好味。

(image) (image)
老板坚持老面发酵炭火烧饼,一切人手制造。唔知仲会盛传几代,趁有得食就继续支持落去喇。应该係我最钟意嘅台北早餐店,有机会我会再去、又再去、又再去···(image)



Fish sauce fried rice @ Home

2010-06-06T20:48:10.156+08:00

Lazy to go out for dinner, so simply mix and match whatever can be found in the fridge. Secret ingredient for fried rice is fish sauce, even without meat or sausage it will still taste good. Side made from fresh tomatoes, cabbage and cucumber.

(image)
Not sure what is fish sauce? Maybe this(image)  can help.(image)



Braised Fish-sound(maw) with Chinese cabbage 鱼鳔卤白菜 @ Home

2010-06-07T17:22:41.328+08:00

骆进汉师傅嘅“爆皮(猪皮)卤白菜”俾我变成“鱼鳔卤白菜”··· 哈哈,配冬粉吃应该好唔错哦。

Braised Pork Rice 卤肉饭 @ Home

2010-05-22T21:07:08.837+08:00

What I miss the most after back from Taiwan is definitely Braised Pork Rice (卤肉饭), too bad I still can't find any nice one locally, so how?

(image) Let's head to kitchen and cook it myself! Luckily it is not too difficult at all; pork belly, dark+light soy sauce, onion, garlic, sugar, wine and spices. Cooking time 1 hour and I quickly marinate some cucumber as side. Everything tastes good except I have to live with bad texture local rice.

[Updated] Same stuff for dinner, reheat, with bihun ;-).

台湾 - 行程表

2010-06-13T14:10:47.327+08:00

『Updated 01 June, 2010』

好多朋友今年都会到台湾一趟,所以一路催我Post个行程表先,唔好再咁多废话:-)。Okay咯,有啲赶,所以可能会miss咗一啲细节,慢慢会补贴嘎啦。

我唔会list每日行程,instead我会将佢地分类,咁你就会容易啲mix and match。

早晨到傍晚 - 台北

阜杭豆漿 - 捷运板南线,善导寺站,华山市场二楼。台北老早餐店,平日六七点应该係peak hour,所以我八九点先至到。咸豆浆,薄饼加蛋加油条··· 我已经爱上咗喇,下次必到!

金峰卤肉饭 - 台北闻名嘅卤肉饭,交通方便(捷运中正纪念堂4号出口),嚟到台北唔试一试,点讲得过去啊!

艋舺龙山寺 - 捷运板南线,龙山寺站。对寺庙有兴趣嘅朋友,可以考虑到龙山寺一游,晨早掺一大堆日本游客一齐膜拜。坐埋边静静咁观赏270年历史嘅龙山寺,都几啱feel下。

捷运市政府站(台北101,新光三越,New York New York)- 严格嚟讲,101可以唔去,但係游客通常都会一游嘅地方,叫你唔去又好似有啲讲唔过去。里边嘅店无乜可以买,除非你係要到顶楼睇风景(我宁愿上山)。其他左近嘅Shopping mall都係一样,除咗New York New York有啲平嘢,你捻你喇。

平溪线(十分-平溪-菁桐)- 搭台铁到瑞芳站,转搭平溪线(可以买全日票)。由于时间嘅问题,我地净係去咗“平溪”同埋“菁桐”。未搭过旧式火车嘅,都有啲新意嘅。之不过每一站本身冇乜睇,最衰火车要成个几钟一班,玩两个站分分钟用3-4个钟。下次去可能会净係到“十分”睇瀑布。

九份 - 由瑞芳(参考上边平溪线)搭公车15分钟就到喇。风景确实係靓嘅,但係都仲係有啲闷嘅地方。老街食物一般,仲repeat,个人feel到好“游客”嘅地方,失去老街应有嘅味道。

五分埔 - 捷运板南线,后山碑站。唔使捻喇,女仔要买衫、裤、裙、包等等,嚟呢度就啱嗮啦。多选择又平,估计你一日买唔嗮,要嚟两日哦 ;-)

淡水老街 - 捷运淡水线,淡水站。成日啲人送你铁蛋就係呢度买嘎啦。除咗铁蛋,“阿给”都係另一特别嘅小食(豆腐包冬粉)。老街方面都还好,景点就嘛嘛喇。如果时间怆促又到渔人码头、情人桥可能会觉得有啲无聊。呢度係要悠闲咁游··· which唔啱我 :-)。

国立故宫博物馆 - 捷运淡水线士林站转红30接驳车。唔知点解唔係我嘅trip里边,个人觉得应该去嘅地方。

新背投 - 捷运淡水线,新背投站。想要试试温泉嘅朋友,可以到呢度。大众池或者双人池都有,温泉馆option你自己上网check下啦。“地狱谷”係呢度温泉嘅泉头,由新背投站要行一段路先至到。对我嚟讲绝对係大开眼界,四处硫磺味,烟雾弥漫。唔知有冇人投泉自尽过呢?

猫空 - 高空缆车我係第一次搭,有啲怯添。山顶冇乜嘢睇,但係胜在够凉爽。听讲有好多茗茶嘅好地方,但係我地净係上山慢行。悠悠闲闲··· 都几写意噶。

夜晚 - 台北

西门町 - 捷运板南线,西门站。时下年轻人嘅一大蒲点,係就係有好多店卖嘢(衫裤鞋袜),但係逛得多台湾就会发觉几乎都係千篇一律,我就冇买到啲乜啦。值得一逛嘅。食嘢方面“阿宗面线”几唔错。忘记一提,呢度仲有戏院,卡拉OK,想消磨时间嘅话一啲都唔难。

华西街观光夜市 - 冇乜搞作嘅夜市,从前呢一区叫做“艋舺”。似曾相识哩···咪就係电影【艋舺】拍摄嘅地方咯。比较特别啲嘅食物可能係蛇羹,但係我剩係吃咗个卤肉饭、排骨酥汤同埋个蚝煎。蚝煎就嘛嘛地喇。可以唔去。

師大夜市 - 捷运新店线,台电大楼站。一个我去咗两次嘅夜市,个人觉得几不错,唔会太大,都有几多嘢食又冇乜repeat,仲有好多街边shopping档仔,啱嗮女仔喇。食咗“大台北评价卤味”、“许记生煎包”、“牛魔王”、“蓝家割包”、“烤嗜院”同埋on the way返台电大楼站会经过嘅“永丰盛”手工包子,全部都okay噶。

士林夜市 - 捷运淡水线,剑潭站。又一个纯碎俾游客玩嘅地方,同样地我都唔钟意。闻名嘅“豪大鸡排”净係呢度有人排队,其他夜市都唔多觉眼。我应该唔会再去嘅一个夜市。

台北车站 - 好大嘅车站,有杂志书店、有档仔卖小食、有啲衫店,但係都普普通通。唯一比较特出嘅就係二楼嘅“微风广场”food court,好多嘢食。人气店应该就係“花月嵐拉面”,有到不妨试试佢地嘅拳骨拉面。

诚品书店 - 待···

捷运忠孝复兴站 (Sogo复兴馆,微风广场)- 待···

台湾 - 序(2)

2010-04-30T01:11:51.830+08:00

坐高铁···

(image) 高铁係穿梭台湾城市最方便嘅交通工具,唯一嘅小缺点,就係票价有啲高。建议你到台北嘅时候(例如台北车站)到高铁counter问一问,佢地某啲时段票价係有discount噶。好似我呢张由高雄(左营)到台北嘅高铁票,85折完之后仲要1265NT。详细票价可以到台湾高铁网站查下。

(image) 一架高铁有好多个车厢。好似我张票,5号车厢,够钟落到啱嘅月台入啱嘅车厢就得喇。车厢里边好宽倘,有厕所,最重要嘅就係唔好睏觉,好好地欣赏下窗外边嘅稻田,成个farmville咁。

(image) (image) 由一个车厢到另外一个车厢又或者到厕所道门都唔会自动打开,搵下左右呢个掣撳下,道门就会开嘎啦。

(image)

台湾 - 序(1)

2010-04-29T00:50:10.247+08:00

正喺台湾返嚟,之前筹备以为一下就搞掂,点知道搞下搞下到临去嘅前一晚都仲喺度忙紧,trip个阵仲漏洞百出。所以希望可以整理一下Post出嚟等大家下次可以参考。

飞之前···
  • Make sure你有个valid嘅passport,马来西亚到台湾係唔需要visa噶,喺飞机度空姐会俾你一张入境卡,visa个位你可以唔填。
  • 你个schedule最好plan得有咁仔细得咁仔细,如果唔係,活动A同埋活动B之间嘅时间你唔会知要点嘥正好。举个例“早餐阜杭跟住Sogo shopping”,大佬,阜杭晨咁早你就要去排队而Sogo要十/十一点正开门,吃完早餐你要搞乜啊···
  • 如果有ipod,iphone,mp3 player记住要带,忘记咗就好似我咁喺飞机度无所事事。路程大概4-5个钟。
  • 可以嘅话,带得越少嘢过去就越好。我地两个人去个阵一件行李箱check in,两件返嚟。
  • 带把缩骨遮,会落雨噶。
  • 如果plan先到台北,切记切记网上或email先订房。台湾人本身星期五晚就会涌入台北,抢手嘅酒店通常都会fully book。
  • Book房个阵,如果可以揀啲有自助洗衫嘅(通常係投币式或免费),unless你剩係会喺台湾三四日,唔係噶话你绝对需要洗衫(有干衣机,唔使怕衫唔干)。
  • Check清楚酒店位置,最好近住捷运(台北/高雄噶话)。唔好100%信嗮酒店website讲嘅距离,佢话嘅五分钟距离可能係用嚟跑嘅。
  • Triple check你嘅schedule,想象下当日嘅情形。如果早晨行山,下午shopping,夜晚夜市噶话,你脚骨力一定好劲。信我,你顶唔到几多日,重整你嘅schedule喇。
  • 唔需要plan to扫嗮台湾全部夜市,因为都唔会太大分别,重点出击就够喇。
  • 带几多钱去?好个人嘅问题,大概建议下仲得嘅。宿:旅店酒店大概2000NT一晚(双人)。食:400-500NT(个人)一日。台北捷运:average 100NT一日(个人,计埋缆车游艇if any)。的士:85NT起跳,一程大概150NT-230NT。高铁:高雄到台北~1265NT,台中到高雄~670NT,台北到台中~595NT。一般车票:桃园机场到台北125NT,台铁台北到瑞芳60NT,高雄捷运二日卡200NT。买:五分埔衫(女)150NT-300NT左右。可以嘅话,带多啲无妨,可以吃好啲或者买多啲拌手礼。
搞掂嗮,就可以上机啦!

Sweet & Sour? Pasta @ Home

2009-12-13T17:52:23.041+08:00

A bit hungry but found out I didn't stock any meat at home. Cooking plain pasta again will be a bit boring... what about something special? Weeks ago tried a simple recipe of sweet and sour pork loin, let me try to use the same sauce for plain pasta ;-).

(image) Sesame, spaghetti, garlic, shallot, Chinese black vinegar (sour type), ketchup and sugar.

(image) Simple yet not so ordinary, give it a try!(image)



Aglio e Olio @ Home

2009-12-13T00:18:48.259+08:00

To gain more confident, should always start with the easiest pasta ;-). Aglio e Olio, a traditional pasta cooked with only spaghetti, olive oil, garlic and chili flakes (the rest optional). Read more about Aglio e Olio here.

(image) Don't want to make my blog a cooking blog, so no recipe from me. With all the ingredients above, should be not tough to produce the following.

(image) And after topped with grated cheese...

Pasta @ Home

2009-12-12T15:46:40.034+08:00

Wanted to cook some pasta at home, went shopping and bought quite some ingredients cause lazy to go out again for small stuffs...

(image) Extra virgin olive oil, grated cheese, shallot, garlic, Chinese (can't find Italian) parsley, unsalted butter, dried oregano, bay leaves, spaghetti, chili flakes, tuna, nuts... not sure how long I can continue :-)(image)



南发 Bah Kut Teh @ Klang

2009-07-06T00:27:33.688+08:00

Yesterday dinner with friends and get complained again because seldom update my blog :-). So I quickly dig out some photos to keep it alive a bit...

(image) My Klang buddy finally able to have breakfast with me again. Today we are having BKT as usual but focus will be on pork intestines instead of soup. This stall is not too packed and I think mostly only Klang people are visiting.

(image) (image) Their intestines (猪肠) are really good for soup-based BKT, a bit chewy and not smelly at all, other shops either didn't clean it properly, not layered enough or too soft. Why compare only with soup based? Because I think those Yip's families dried BKT doing not bad at all in preparing their intestines. 南发 claimed to be the pioneer in "claypot" style BKT, but their soup is not the type that I like, nevertheless, this is still a nice breakfast session with friends.

Pisang Goreng, Waffle World @ 1 Utama

2009-05-23T13:14:05.277+08:00

What if suddenly you longed for fried banana while shopping at 1 Utama? If it's still around early tea time, my first reaction will be drive all the way down to Brickfields for some Mr. Chiam's pisang goreng (read here and here), but the chance that it's already sold out is very high, so not worth it.

A simpler way to fulfill your desire is to try out Waffle World's version of pisang goreng. More expensive but it comes with a scoop of ice-cream, honey coated and air conditioned environment, better than nothing.

Fullhouse @ NZX, Ara Damansara

2009-05-04T20:58:47.980+08:00

Bumped into Fullhouse last year (another old post...) when sending one of my colleagues back to NZX area.

(image) Can't really recall the price, but the thing that still vividly in my mind is a warm greeting in Korean from an Indian waiter, what a funny combination. Food served in small portion with nice decoration, great for us as we are not looking for a full dinner.

Quality wise, I don't really like the drink but the main dishes are tasty. I thought I will revisit them again when I have just started my meal, but in the end, I decided not to pay them a visit anymore. Partly because NZX's location is too inconvenient for me, another reason is because the owner (or maybe just another employee of Fullhouse) treated the Indian waiters so badly even in front of customers. If they are really care and proud about their cozy environment, please scold the waiters in the kitchen instead, btw, I don't agree on "scold" at all.

YOICHI @ Bandar Puteri, Puchong

2009-04-18T00:36:01.848+08:00

First post in 2009... why missing in action for so many months? Well well, busy work, renovation, Chinese New Year, move in new house, house warming(s), registration of marriage, wedding preparation, etc... but the real reason behind could be, lazy to write :-) and this has resulted uncountable backlogs. Last Friday after I had a bad food experience at hawker stalls, I was thinking to restart my blog with some really bad reviews, unfortunately weekend really make someone lay back and prefer do nothing, that's why I failed (again).

So why restart today then? Simple, because we just had a nice dinner @ YOICHI Japanese Restaurant, Puchong. Noticed YOICHI about month ago but no time to give it a try, besides, also because restaurants in Bandar Puteri quite disappointing sometimes, but I'm glad that finally I have stepped in.

(image) This post will have no food photo at all, reason is I can't get a good shot under dim light. Few things that surprise me about YOICHI :
  • didn't expect a Japanese restaurant in Bandar Puteri running by Japanese chef
  • a Chinese lady boss that can speak great Japanese
  • taste good
  • very reasonable price
  • since when we have so many Japanese customers in Puchong?
  • a blog to market their restaurant, but it's all in Japanese
We settled our dinner with only simple don set; Tori Teriyaki Don (鶏照り焼き丼, RM 11.80) and Buta shogayaki Don (豚生姜焼き丼, RM 14.80). The set comes with a nice miso soup and a great small side, both of us thinks the food is very good. The only small down side could be the rice itself is not too Japanese (not so sticky and not fine in shape), but with the price it's selling now, I don't really mind at all. Other than the don sets, I have also ordered a Tempura Moriawase (てんぷら盛り合わせ, RM 15), great value with meaty and juicy prawn.

To read more about YOICHI, visit their website here. For photos of our orders, check out their dinner menu. I will definitely visit them again.

Tian Hong Char Siew @ Salak South

2008-12-24T00:19:36.694+08:00

I love char siew and have eaten really a lot when I was kid. Why? Because my family was in food business years ago selling only BKT and char siew, so when come to dinner, I can only choose between BKT or char siew rice (how lucky I was...). Too bad we are no longer running it, so I have to pay for good char siew now :-).

(image) Other than the famous Meng Kee char siew @ Tengkat Tong Sin, Salak South is another place I will go whenever I crave for char siew.

Went there again one Friday 2pm+, still a bowl of char siew (yes, a bowl, they didn't hang everything) so without hesitate too long, we have ordered 3-pax char siew for only 2 of us ;-). The food still good as usual, frankly I love Meng Kee's char siew better but 2pm+ I'm pretty sure it's already sold out. The secret behind this good char siew is hold by the old owner, always with calm and peaceful look uncle.

Heun Kee @ Pudu, KL

2008-11-19T20:32:01.075+08:00

Tried a few claypot chicken rice in Klang Valley but failed to find one that suit my taste buds, luckily recall boo_licious post on Heun Kee and give it a try... and it's so good! Not so confident in the beginning because noticed this is prepared by 2 foreign ladies, but once I realized they have been helping around the owner for 7-11 years, this explains why it's still so delicious.

Yet to try their claypot 腊味饭 (waxed meat), will do soon. Detail review please read masak-masak, no time to write much, sorry ;-)

Yook Woo Hin @ Petaling Street, KL

2008-11-15T21:05:48.188+08:00

Heard some good comments about Yook Woo Hin dim sum long time ago, but because need to go wake up and go to city early in the morning, so always no chance to try it out. One fine morning because wanted to buy toys for a friend's new born baby, so here we are breakfast at Yoke Woo Hin, Petaling Street.

(image) A little bit of "oldish" feeling overall is what I enjoy most; the restaurant, people, cutlery and dim sum... Finally feel like having dim sum at 莲香楼, although still not "old" enough. Food wise, all dim sum ingredients are fresh and real (hate other local dim sum places where the minced meat tastes like mixed with a lot of dunno what) but not many varieties.

(image) (image) Among the dishes, I highly recommend their chee cheong fun. I'm expecting either normal Hong Kong style or Ipoh mushroom sauce style, but surprisingly, this is something new to me (forgive my illiteracy in chee cheong fun), a bit sweet with minced pork meats really a good match of the soft chee cheong fun.

Fat Siu Lau & Hang Heong Un @ Macau

2008-09-30T23:42:48.482+08:00

Read so many reviews on Fat Siu Lau (佛笑楼) and hoping to get great taste from them, unfortunately during my last visit in Macau, their quality is just average. Their Superb Roasted Pigeon (石岐烧乳鸽) no doubt is well marinated but the spices failed to attract us. Look at the tiny pigeon served...

(image) (image) Maybe they can do better in other signature dishes, so we give their Baked Pork Chop on Rice (焗骨饭) a try. Honestly this is not too bad but as compare to RedAnt, this is really nothing to shout about. Price for drinks, soup, pigeon and baked rice = MOP 235.

As usual, lunch or dinner in Hong Kong and Macau always complete with dessert :-). Read from somewhere that Steven Chow likes to visit Hang Heong Un (杏香园), so we head to Travessa do Auto Novo (清平直街) after lunch to have some (hopefully) great dessert.

(image) (image) People always complaint about the price here but thumb up for their quality, therefore the shop is quite empty all the time. We have ordered 雪糕马蹄沙 (MOP 26) and 白果杏仁核桃 (MOP 26), both are refreshing but indeed, too expensive for a small dessert like this. Wonder how can they survive, and how they consume the remaining desserts end of the day (I don't want to know, and don't want to imagine... ha ha!)(image)

Ah Tau Seafood Bak Kut Teh @ Klang

2008-08-24T01:47:26.781+08:00

Congratulations to Chris new born baby! Guess after he promoted to father, will be very hard for him to have early BKT breakfast with me in Klang :-).

This visit to Ah Tau BKT (阿头肉骨茶) in fact already months ago. As usual, most famous BKT in Klang come at a price - wake up really early. We reached there around 8am and it's already packed with people. Chris is regular customer here, so without discuss too much he has placed all the orders for us.

(image) I already heard that this tastes a lot different than the normal BKT, so I didn't put high expectation to it as I love the normal BKT so much. When this big bowl first served to our table, honestly, the smell and boiling soup with fried chicken claws, flower crab, fried bean curd skin (腐竹) and meats are really impressive. Tried one scoop of soup... ah, they have added cili padi, so it's a bit spicy, not my type ;-).

Anyway, the mixture of seafood, meat and herbal soup is not bad, just I will not call this Bak Kut Teh. I enjoy the fu zuk and fried chicken claws so much, but overall the meat and seafood part do not really indulge me. Some foods I reckon they are savory but I will not addicted and die for it, this seafood BKT exactly this category to me.

(image)
Everyone has their own preference on food. Read lot of good and bad comments about Ah Tau Seafood Bak Kut Teh, but individuals are unique and same goes for taste buds, if you like this, eats more, and if you don't, simply stop eating. Life should be as simple as this :-).

Teck Seong BKT @ Klang

2008-08-02T21:53:48.043+08:00

Didn't blog for so long because busy searching renovation idea every weekend :-).

There are a lot of BKT in Klang, sometimes I enjoy the claypot version but most of the time I still prefer the bowl type. Teck Seong (慶祥) is one of Chris' (my friend from Klang) favourites, knowing I will die for great food so one very early Saturday he brought us to here.

(image) Heard their recipe also derived from Teck Teh, but I like Teck Seong better because their soy sauce is not overpowering. If there is one BKT that I can eat every week, this must be the one. One good reason to eat BKT with Chris is he always bring us some good Chinese tea, today 正溪王 leaves tiny sweetness in my throat, good one!

Everything else @ Hong Kong

2008-06-16T20:45:25.972+08:00

Ha ha... you can say I'm lazy, going to put rest of the food photos I have taken last October in this post, because they are not some famous restaurant, but definitely items that I will try again in next visit, maybe find a more famous restaurant serving these.

过桥米线, a Yunnan's delicacy but also available in Hong Kong. We tried this at Da Jiu Jia (大救驾) somewhere Mong Kok because of their big advertisement board outside stating their chef won great recognition last (last) year. Bowls below are 金菇肥牛米线 (HKD 28) and 豆花米线 (HKD 25).

(image) (image) Macaroni soup with ham also a great breakfast that I wish we can have it here. Cost about HKD 16, you can eat this at most of the "cha chaan teng" or from their famous fast food chain Fairwood (大快活) or Cafe de Coral (大家乐).

(image) Borscht (罗宋汤) always one of my favourite soups, most "cha chaan teng" serves this.

(image) When can we have nice beef noodles everywhere? Still... most "cha chaan teng" serves this, some really good, the rest also not too bad. Beef noodles to them almost close to our pork noodles culture here, but too bad I like beef more than pork :-)

(image) Once a while, can also try (rather) extreme delicacy like baked ox tongue (牛琍), oh... heaven!

(image) Last but not least, wantan noodles (HKD 20/23)! They always come with great wantan, I didn't pay attention to the noodles but the wantan and "sui gao" really big and tasty. These are from Mak's Noodle, a quite famous restaurant at Central but we tried them at ferry terminal.

(image) (image) Coming up... more Macau's posts.(image)



.99 Steaks & Chops @ TTDI

2008-05-31T22:44:26.478+08:00

Dining at cozy restaurant like Silk Road once a while is still fine, but of course I can't afford to spend like that often, so what happen if you really want to eat somewhat okay but not too expensive? Try this, (very) cheap western food, taste okay + big portion :-).

(image) (image) We are not familiar with TTDI area at all. After my colleagues (thanks Martin, YY) brought us to Devi's Corner weeks ago, we revisited this area to hunt for dinner and found .99 Steaks & Chops, packed with people on Saturday night. With only limited choice on their menu, we have ordered Lamb Chop (RM14.90) and Kopitiam Chicken Chop (RM10.90).

Both plates come with big side dishes. The mushroom sauce of lamp chop slightly over salted and the chicken chop can't really compare to either Sin Seng Nam or Yut Kee, but overall taste okay and it is an enjoyable dinner. With 2 additional fruit juices, total cost for our dinner is only RM34.60.

At the Silk Road Restaurant, discerning dinners can feast to their hearts' content as they join in the spirit of discovering authentic Chinese cuisines like Shenyang dumpling, Beijing roasted duck, Sichuan handmade noodle and more...『丝绸之路』是一条美食之路。四川、西安、北京及沈阳的独特传统美食纷纷在此落户,无论是沈阳饺子、北京烤鸭、四川拉面等...Because of my limited knowledge of China provinces and cuisines, I never understand what is Silk Road and why it's so interesting, until we have visited this restaurant recently, then only I start to read some more about Silk Road.The most interesting item we had is the Eight Treasure Tea 八宝茶 (RM 5), a traditional drink that commonly served along Silk Road. I can't really recognize all 8 ingredients, but it obviously contains red dates (红枣), Chinese wolfberry (枸杞), raisin (葡萄干), longan (桂圆干), etc. My tea tastes different every time the waiter refill my cup with his special made pot, guess that is because of the flavor of some ingredients only start to emerge after some times.We have ordered 2 items ourselves - their award winning Pan-fried Cod with Sichuan Spicy Sauce 鱼香香煎鳕鱼 (RM 43.80) and Twice-cooked Sliced Pork 四川回鍋肉 (RM 16). The cod fish is very well fried, but I'm not impress with the sauce at all because it tastes too close to typical sweet and sour sauce that we have. The sliced pork is good to me but some may find it too oily :-).We followed the waitress recommendation for another 2 dishes, Shenyang Pan-fried Snowflake Dumpling 沈阳冰花煎饺 (RM 14) and Crispy Rice Bubble with Seafood 锅巴海鲜 (RM 29). The way they serve the dumpling is quite special, I can imagine the pan's shape because they served together with the lightly burnt parts, but this added special flavor to the dumpling overall. For the rice bubble stuffs, I'm quite surprise because it is quite nice although I don't like the "kwong fu" style like this.Will probably revisit Silk Road, of course not often as the 2-person lunch like this already cost RM 120++.Technorati Tags: Silk Road + Pavilion[...]



Tai Cheong 泰昌 Bakery @ Lyndhurst Terrace, Central

# Read trip summary here

While looking for the Lyndhurst Terrace (擺花街), an uncle pointed us to climb up this "hill"... OMG, lazy person like me really find this a big challenge!

(image) There are a lot ramps like this around Central (中环) area, I'm pretty sure people that live and work here already get enough exercise everyday, no need to worry how many food you eat during lunch because you will need to walk back to office afterward.

(image) Once you are at Lyndhurst Terrace, it's not hard to locate Tai Cheong Bakery. The brand has been around since 1954 and moved to this new address in 2005. Even until today, most of the biscuits are still handmade by the owner.

(image) The signature item here is egg tart (HKD 4), the butter pastry type, so not the same as what we buy from Tong Kee. The last Hong Kong governor, Chris Patten is a great fan of egg tart selling here, he even become a friend of the owner and still keep in touch with him (seen this from one of Astro's documentary). Some claims that this is the best butter egg tart in Hong Kong, I cannot judge as I didn't try others in Hong Kong, but frankly, this hot popping piece of egg tart is really good (IMHO) and makes me recall scenes in Stephen Chow's movie 行運一條龍. Grab one if you are there!
