I just love indulging a simple and yet delicious steamed beancurd and fish paste topped with lots of chopped scallion and fried onion and shallot oil and a splash of premium soya sauce. I had a similar dish for lunch somewhere hidden in Pudu and it was not cheap and the portion felt short. My craving started there and I decided to make it while dining in. It was simple and easy, while fried garlic, fried shallot and shallot oil can be done in advance.

The steamed beancurd and fish paste was superb in taste and texture, soft silky tofu and smooth fish paste with light biting texture can truly tease any punters taste buds. I was intrigued by its simplicity and the affordability as it easily cost less than RM5(USD1.50) but most important I had a great cooking time and enjoy indulging it. Gorgeous!
