Mei Chi Xuan Marmite with infused italian herbs
Marmite Prawns infused with Italian Herbs

My next food trail with Chef Steven Cheng was to have a simple comfort meal at Mei Chi Xuan located at Damansara Perdana. It was a surprise that evening as I got to try out a new dish served here, the Marmite Prawns infused with Italian Herbs. It smells really pungently good, how can someone not to notice the present of the marmite. I myself basically grew up with indulging marmite. The prawns were pan fried and coated with concrentrated marmite sauce infused with italain herds. It was smashing. It was flavful. It tasted unique and I just loved it. Excellent! and the sauce was not too over powering, just nice.

Toast The Yee Sang This Ramadan

I was lucky to have toasted the Yee Sang at this end of third quarter of the year and I had it at China Treasures located at Sime Darby Convention Centre along with two of muslim workmates.

It was a change to have a more lighter dishes and also able to taste a different experience. We ordered the set for 6 persons which came with a moon cake platter as a sweet at the end of the dinner. My mates like the idea as the would like to try the mooncakes. We started off with the Yee Sang with additional finely sliced dates and also a hint of kaffir leaves.

It was truly fun to toast the Yee Sang over the Ramadan with my mates. We wished for a properous year with great health.

Salt & Peppered White Baits

“Chee Yim” or “Salt & Peppered” is a very delicious dish by itself. You can have it in prawn, squid, chicken, mantis prawn and even fish. Today I am introducing this dish with white baits. White baits are small fishes whereby all the bones are taken out before being cooked. As my good friend Sunny Yaw always say, easy and simple….lol!


400gm white baits (other white fish meat can be used too)
1 egg
a pinch salt
a pinch white pepper
1 teaspoon sesame oil

tapioca powder
oil for deep frying

3 tablespoon white wine
3 sliced green chilli padi
a pinch salt

Marinated fish baits with salt, white pepper, seame oil and set it aside.
Heat up deep frying oil
Coat fish baits with tapioca flour.
Deep fried them till light golden brown.
Heat up a clean wok.
Put all those deep fried fish baits on to the work.
Dashed in white wine.
Throw in green chilles and a salt.

I would recommend you to order this when you are dining at my restaurant as it had be come a favourite dish with my dinners.

Have a try yourself in your own kitchen too.

"Lat Chi Kai" Dried Chilly Chicken

Got to say that Chef Steven’s “Lat Chi Kai” is one of the most delicious shanghainese chicken dish in town. I had tried a few such as those at Jalan Ah Loy cooked by a chinese chef from China, verdict not too bad but still not that tasty. I had tried Dragon-I, verdict, great but too many dried chillies, tried De Hunan’s at Khucai Lama, verdict, the chicken pieces are too small and hard (deep fried to long I guess).

This “Lat Chi Kai” consists of small cut of chicken meat and deep fried and a quick stir fried with dried chillies, whole garlic and ginger. Oh I got to say it is lovely and it can be eaten by itself, rice or with the company of a few pint of beer, a truely discovery of shanghainese dish.

If you are at Chef Steven Cheng’s restaurant, do not miss this lovely dish. It is one of my favourite dish where I truely recommend this to you to try.

Yours Sunny Yaw
