Recipe Stir Fried Cincalok Chicken with Pickled Averrhoa Bilimbi and Stinking Beans

Stinking bean 1
A Plate of Wholesome Stir Fried Cincalok Chicken with Pickled Averrhoa Bilimbi & Stinking Beans

I just love creating this dish after indulging a similar flavor and taste at two awesome dinnery, one at Little Yum Yum Restaurant, Kota Damansara and the other at Pau Loong Banquet Hall, Teluk Intan.

At Little Yum Yum I just love how pickled Averrhoa Bilimbi or Belimbing Buluh being put into play on their beautiful nyonya dish, cincalok chicken. While indulging Pau Loong Banquet Hall had their fish fillet cooked in cincalok sauce and my second visit, I had the same sauce with squid. There were explosive dishes, great flavour, awesome taste and definitely a memorable one that can easy stick in one’s brain like mind . . . . . . lol!

Since those awesome superb taste and flavor still cracking in my head, I just have to create something similar at my private kitchen. For me I just love those little jewel, Pickled Averrhoa Bilimbi and that is an issue and need to sort out first. They are not easy to find ingredient but I manage to find them at Malay stall located at Chow Kit night market. I was told it is a seasonal fruit that has a short life span as it will go soft and wet very easily. Pickling them would be the best thing to do, I was advised.

My New Look with Crizal Forte UV Essilor Lenses

spec

Two months back I was introduced to Essilor’s Crizal Forte UV lenses and at that moment it had caught right to my attention. It is awesome to know what you are using especially for viewing. As usual I don’t bother much on what I buy especially the eyewear lenses and the only area that I wil take notice would be the frame brand or maker. After such new know how knowledge that I had picked up on that day, I decided to have a new look using Crizal Forte UV lenses.

Figuring – Cartoonimal 1

I have been following the work of Chef Es Koyama (Koyama Susumu) on marzipan figuring especially from his book “Marzipan 20 stories”. It is really exciting to have found so many of marzipan figurings. So I had decided to glue my bum onto my chair and spend some patient time crafting this cuties over the long “Hari Raya” holidays. I did not really follow exactly Chef Koyama’s designs but I use them as a guide which looks so interesting and different when comes to comparing mine and his….. I am just a beginner when comes to figuring ………….. lol. In this post I share 3 of my marzipan figurings that I patiently did, the mousse, the cat and the parrot.



The Parrot



The mousse


The Cat

We love the work of Chef Koyama as he also had published a book entitled The Sweet Trick regarding tricks and tips while you bake. There are a few more figuring in the process but will post them later. Have a nice weekend! See you soon.

Strawberry Moussecake with Flaming Meringue

It had already been a week rest and I guess it is time to churn out a nice dessert and also to spoil myself by indulging them later. What will be the best dessert to make this time after such a long hari raya break? Maybe something simple and yet looks beautiful and stunning. Hmmm…thinking!

I always wanted to use my new culinary torch, the one I bought from a hardware store, the best thing to make is a creme brulee. Creme brulee… hmmmm… sounds interesting as I can burn those sugar topping but in fact I just had them a day before at Mandarin Hotel. I guess I will not have such similar dessert as it will be so bored and crazy. I have an idea…… the vision of the flaming alaska came into mind… oh yes I would love that, but I had ran out of ice cream but I have some strawberry moussecake in my fridge. Strawberry moussecake. I make some meringue (whisk egg white and sugar) and I piped them onto the moussecake. Once done the flaming started. So cool and so fun as you can burn the dessert….lol.

Illy’s Espresso Macaroons

I was at the beverage exhibition at KLCC Convention Centre recently and had a chance to taste a variety of illy coffee….. I am really into coffee as I enjoy the aroma and taste but I always feel that a cuppa a coffee must be accompanied with something, if not, it will be very boring and lonely…..lol…I am sure you will agree with me,…. am I right?

A piece of big chewy cookies is something I always dream off to accompany my coffee but not many places will store them except my own cookie jar……lol! I also notice that huge coffee places like starbucks or coffeebean do not provide any cookie when you order an expensive cup of coffee. I guess it is time they should. On the other hand, whenever I have my coffee at the 5* hotel in Kuala Lumpur I get to have a cookie, bravo.

Anyway…. I really adore illy coffee, and I am sure you know why and can be found at some many eateries in Kuala Lumpur. So I decided to use illy espresso coffee and add them into my macaroons. Oh! they are so lovely……as they can divorce their cuppa of coffee……funny? I had them with white chocolate ganache so that the aroma of the espresso will explodes in your mouth when you eat it.


Espresso macaroons are available for sale, please get in touch with us.
