Massaman Lamb Shank 1
Massaman Lamb Shank

When I saw ISSAYA SIAMESE CLUB Bangkok’s Massaman promotes it’s Lamb Shank on facebook it got me excited. Well I just love the food creation at this gorgeous restaurant located in Bangkok. Yes I had tried them out early quarter of this year and their food is just absolutely delicious. Chef Ian ‘s unique 10 hours slow-cooked Massaman Lamb Shank looked so perfectly. By looking at it you know you want to taste it and I will when I get to Bangkok. Looking through my little library I found a Massaman recipe hidden in the Blue Elephant Cookbook and I decided to give it a try. I recreated the Massaman paste but I improvised on the lamb shank as their was cooked with diced lamb.

Heading to Bukit Tinggi just after the Genting Highland Tunnel can be such an exciting thing to do. Well we had a vegetable farming visit at the hills of Bukit Tinggi. It was truly specteclar, riding over the bumpy and muddy hill. Just like riding a wild horse, on the back of the rustice jeep. Walking up those hilly cultivated land can be such a challenge especially for me having such a overly build body. “I must start exercising more frequent from now on”, I fried my little tiny brain.

I am truly glad that I did not need to pick which restaurant to have lunch as along one road at Bukit Tinggi you can just see a sea of restaurants lining up to serve your hunger. Our host did the pick! The Summer Park Restaurant located on the far left of the main road as you turn into the little town.

Yummy thin slices Pig Ears


3 plates of tibits to start off with which is so delicious.

"Mat Lat" Parrot Fish

My blogging friends, especially Beachlover had been exploring ready make ingredients that come in pack form especially those made in Malaysia. So when I was looking through my unpublished post, I found this one. “Mah Lat” Parrot Fish. This dish had also been posted by my fellow dedicated floggers and great friends, Teckiee and Jacksonkah. “Mat Lat” is a famous szechuan dish in China which ultilise szechuan pepper corn and loads of chillies. Here today I am going to included the details:



There is a lot of variety of ready made “Mat Lat” paste but I use the about one. It taste as usual hot, hot and also comes with a hint of mutton taste.


Here I used a whole Parrot fish. To make a great whole fish, I deep the whole fish in a pool of oil at low temperature. “Yau Jum Yee” is a good cooking technique of cooking fish. Once the fish is golden brown in colour, your fish is cooked and ready.


Next is to make the “Mah Lat” sauce, pan fry some garlic and dried chillies in hot oil, put 1-2 tablespoon of “Mat Lat” paste then add some stock. Add seasoning to your liking. If you like hot, hot then add more of the “Mat Lat” paste. I prefer it to be a bit mild so that can taste the freshness of the fish.

Hope you can find this “Mat Lat” paste. I have a few packet of this “Mat Lat” paste left in my kitchen, if you like a packet of this, do let me know by emailing to bigboysoven@gmail.com which stock last.

Hope you can find this paste and try this dish… one word to describe… lovely.
