Batu Caves Yong Tau Foo

Stuffed Fish Paste

A simple lunch on weekend can be just as interesting, for instant like chopsticking into some delicious yong tau foo. I just love having my fish paste stuffing especially those deep fried dumplings and deep fried beancurd sheet rolls. Dippings is a must in this yong tau foo eating ritual. So we headed to Batu Caves Yong Tau Foo upon a recommendation from a foodie himself.

Dim Sum’ing In A Small Town Called Teluk Anson



This is the place where I grow up used to call Teluk Anson and now, Teluk Intan. It is one of the well known small town in Perak. Coming back home I rediscovered this Dim Sum shop called Tuck Kee and looked very modernised Dim Sum shop just like what you can find in the KL.


A well renovated shop to suit the modernisation of time with a wee bit of rustic look, the deco was really one of the pulling factor that I visited this place.


Look this is a cute steam dim sum trolley to keep the dim sum warm and fresh.






The Loh Mai Kai was incredible good and I end up take away 10 of this and had them deep freeze at home. This is a way to enjoy something at home by reheating them in the microwave oven.


The Har Kau was tasty too, just suited my liking, perfectly done.


Tender and crunchy fish balls! well cooked to perfection.


Oh, I was playing eye with the boa! How can I resist such a lovely fluffy bao and the awesome delicious fillings.


Look I am telling you the truth! just tasted deliciously and I had 10 of them packed for home to be deep freezing. Just love it and to be enjoyed. So if you do drop by Teluk Anson my hometown don’t forget to drop by Tuck Kee for Dim Sum and Tuck Kee is located in the town centre . . . yours Sunny Yaw

Pickled Lotus Root

This is a very simple dish, yet delicious, very refreshing and suitable to endulge before starting having your dinner. This delicate dish is called pickled lotus root. All you need is some fine shreaded lotus root, washed and cleaned. Marinated it in salt for 5 minutes and wash off the salt. The marinate the shredded lotus roots with sugar, a bit of vinegar and lots of lemon juice ( if you like spice, you can put some fresh chillies)

Once ready you will notice that the shredded lotus root taste crunchy and with a hint of lychee taste. The next coming post, I will post my latest creation, mini Buddha jump over the wall (mini futt till cheong). So see you soon.

From myself, Steven Cheng


It was a love story. Love at the first sight when I had my first bite of a macaroon. Sid bought a box of them from Shangrila Hotel right next door of his office at Jalan Sultan Ismail. It was such an incredible piece of cookie, crunchy from the outside and chewy from the inside, fascinating and fantastic. They are the jewel of cookies. I had tried the one from Bakerzin, but theirs were rather soft and do not have that layer of crunchiness and were easily breakable.

It had been more than a year now that I had embarked to bake these jewel macaroons. We had hunted for these recipes from many cookbooks to cookbooks and especially those french written. Each time we tried to bake them and each time we failed, totally hopeless and restless.

Why?…. Most of the time we end up having flat macaroons just like little flying saucers. There were countless of these cookies end up in the bin. It was just like a baker who can’t bake and ain’t a baker!!!

We then stumbled upon some great japanese recipes on macaroon and had tried them, they really work. At the end we had mastered the art of making macaroons. You really need to treat them like you own, if not ,the chances of them to work will be really very slim. You need to pamper them and even talk to them…hehehehehe!

Here I got to say you need to be very alert when combining the ingredients especially during the pre baking. Also need to be alert during baking too, wrong temperature will end up having them cracked or uncooked as just what we encountered before.

We also found this japanese-chinese translated book on macaroon recently at Kinokuniya book store in KLCC. It is only at RM38 and this book is currently on 20% discount with the purchased of one other book. We find this book very well written with such great details, funny, helpful and packed with photos and instruction. We love it. It will able to medicate all your macaroon fever.

Macaroons posts also can be found at: boo_licious and veron.

Love Sunny Yaw
