The Famous Sen Kee Satay @ Desa Aman Puri

BURLESQUE! What a name I would associate it with Sen Kee’s Satay. They can thrill you, sexly grilled to perfection, succulent in taste and texture. Yes you can have chicken, duck, mutton and even beef but my favourite would be their duck and mutton satay.

A Cantonese Affair at Tai Zi Heen Prince Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Peking Duck
Preparing A Peking Duck

Early this month of November I was back at Tai Zi Heen to have myself indulging their remarkable Peking Duck. Not only it was deliciously well prepared Peking Duck, I had it only for RM1. It was such a great offer. All I did was to reserved a table with a minimum spending of RM300. I was lucky too as it was only for the first 8 dinner reservation nightly.

It was beautifully roasted and looked so crispy. The carving was truly attentive during the serving of the Peking Duck. Every skin was very perfectly calculated and sliced. The crisp skin of the Peking Duck was placed on the light thin pancake before rolling into a gigar like shape, together with match cucumber slice, spring onion and homemade hoi sin sauce. A bit into it was truly gorgeous, it was fragrant and tasty. I just loved it.

This post really go Green and sounds like we had not got enough of St Patrick’s Day! Yeah I had countless pints of Guinness and a great outing time with my makan mates. Truly we had been busy and yet really we do not know how to split ourselves when comes to work! :) Got to say it still one of those exciting challenges that keep us, the boys awake and going. It had been awesome when I took the offer to contribute some of my food excusion experiences to one of our major newspaper, New Straits Times and we got to meet so many interesting people and yet loads of delicious food, also not forgetting as it goes we learned many new things and important tips too.

In April we will be gearing up with loads of recipes to be prepared for our up coming cooking and baking classes (a working partnership with Samsung) and it is definitely going to be exciting and do come, have fun together with us in the kitchen this coming due date (This May I was told)!

QUINTESSENTIALLY CANTONESE | ATRIUM CAFÉ, Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa

Pyramid Tower Hotel’s Atrium Café presents a perennial favourite in Chinese cuisine.  “Quintessentially Cantonese” takes the spotlight within its daily buffet dinner from 2 to 16 March 2009.

Deriving their cue from the Canton region, Atrium Café’s chefs draw upon a diversity of ingredients which are incorporated into cooking styles that preserve the freshness and natural flavour of the food. Begin the palatable feast with steaming bowls of time-honoured “Old Fire-Cooked Soups” as it is known in Cantonese. The soup owes its name to its cooking style which entails slow-cooking over mild fire for several hours until a deliciously tempting aroma is yielded. A common Cantonese practice to consume soup before a meal, relish four piping hot choices; Double-Boiled “Kok Choi” and Goby Fish Soup with Honey Dates, Double-Boiled Pumpkin Chicken Soup with Dried Oyster and White Fungus, Double-Boiled Winter Melon Chicken Broth with Dried Scallop and Mushroom and Double-Boiled Water Crest Soup with Two Types of Almonds.

The Way to Indulge A Duck. . . . . !

AROMATIC & CRISPY DUCK

This dish is served and eaten in the same way as Peking Duck -wrapped in a pancake along with shredded spring onion, cucumber sticks and Hoi Sin sauce. I prefer to add spicy dry prawn chilli paste, very oishi delicious. In a restaurant, this dish can be much conviniently served than Peking Duck because a quantity of duck can be precooked in the marinade or cooking sauce and put aside. When required, they are simply deep-fried for 10-11minutes and served, bcause of th final deep-frying, the duck meat will invariably be crisper and without the care and precise timing required when preparing and cooking traditional Peking Duck.

Gosh, I got to admit that I can have half of a duck all by myself, you must try this recipe as it is pretty awesoe, simple and yet not difficult at all. You can even prepare it a day earlier, just deep fry when need to serve. If not try at your nearest chinese restaurant or if you are in Petaling Jaya, you can drop by the CUBES . . . . . . yours SidneyK
