Set Lunch : When Old is Better than New

Update : Chihiro has closed down.

The other day I decided not to cook lunch and headed out to Chihiro@Damansara Uptown. I had my mind on the Shashimi & Salmon Teriyaki from their Chihiro Sashimi Set.

Roti Paung : My Ultimate Carb Crave

A couple of weeks ago I baked two trays of Roti Paung (Terengganu Butter Buns) for my parents. Yup, my folks are in town. Since it was for them (and my brother) to enjoy, I ate only one just for quality control.

You Know Me So Well

When I shared my morning lunch prep, some of you commented that the portion size is quite small and if I would be full with such a modest lunch. depends.

No Udon For Me

Update : Udon Kobo Min Min has closed down.

The last time I visited Udon Kobo Min Min was back in 2016 and I never returned. Not that the food wasn't good, just that the taste was not to my liking.

Morning Food Prep

There was a time when I was very conscientious and I did my meal prep every weekend. Then I got bored with the food.

How I Make Bone Broth

I started making bone broth last year after I was spammed by a publisher (that's you Rodale!) via email. I never signed up on their mailing list but one day I received promotional material on Dr Kellyann's Bone Broth Diet. And heck, they don't even deliver to Malaysia.

Cheesecake Plain and Simple

Yup. I baked another cheesecake because I was still excited about baking small batch cheesecakes. This time, I made it simple. Fuss free.

Inche Kabin : Nonya Spiced Fried Chicken

Ah! I finally cooked Inche Kabin, a nonya recipe that I bookmarked for the longest time. I have eaten this fried chicken at a few restaurants and I must say that the experience was satisfactory until many weeks ago.

No More!

Just last week I commended this eatery for now accepting credit card payments where they previously set a minimum charge of RM50.00. Boy was I in for a disappointment when I kept my promise of visiting them more often.

Fried Bittergourd with Eggs

I can't remember when I developed a liking for bittergourd. What I do remember is the first time I was impressed with a bittergourd dish that I had at a restaurant.

Trying Something Different@Mr Tuk Tuk

This is another of many visits to one of my favorite restaurants, Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling. It was on an evening a few months ago with my brother.

Easy Beef Stew

The other day while shopping at Jaya Grocer, I spied very fresh cuts of beef shin. This is the tough cut and is suitable for long stewing like for cooking rendang, beef curry or beef stew.

Date Nite@Restoran Yik Kee TTDI

One evening, my partner suggested that we go to a restaurant in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) for our Friday dinner. We hardly venture to TTDI even though it is so near us.

Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake. Notoriously difficult to photograph. Especially on a gloomy day. It was a cloudy day when I baked or rather steamed this cake.

Small Breakfast

One weekend I went to the office without breakfast. That's because I still felt full from the previous evening's dinner. I thought I could last till lunch time.

Eggs Baked in Avocado

My love for avocado continues and this time I revisited something I attempted many years ago. That attempt was not so successful because part of the yolk overcooked. After that attempt, I did not bother trying again until recently.

Salted Egg Yolk Chicken

Another fridge cleaning dish. Yup, I had four salted duck eggs in the fridge which were meant for Salted Egg Yolk Cookies.
