Hong Kong Mei-Xin Mooncakes 5
Ethan Tasting the Hong Kong Mei-Xin Mooncakes

Last week I was invited to taste the mooncakes that flew in from Hong Kong, yes the famous mooncake of Mei-Xin (Maxim Hong Kong). That night we meet up at the fabulous delicious Private Kitchen (Uptown Damansara) and we were graced with delicious dinner and Hong Kong Mei-Xin’s traditional baked series and signature snowy series. Good food with delicious mooncakes had seduced me that night. Yet the fabulus company of friends enchanced the whole atmosphere that lovely evening.

Buka Puasa at Manhattan Fish Market

Salam Over Spice
Salam Over Spices

Meeting up with friends over dinnner and picking the right venue can sometimes be rather tricky. As for me I rather would pick a place nerby and not too far as to beat the evening traffic jam. The food must be good too. Staying nearby The Curve I picked the dinner at e@Curve and we went for The ManhattanFish Market Restaurant. Since I had read a good review on Mei Yee’s blog, I opted for their Bumbu Fiesta Meal.

Buddha Jumps Over the Wall

“Buddha jumps over the wall”? Was this dish so sinful for Buddha that he had to jump over the wall to escape? After reading a few articles on this, I found out that is not true. It was about a Fuzhou scholar who went picnicking with friends. He had placed all the ingredients with him in a jar and was heated over a charcoal flame. The aroma and lovly smell spread all the way to a nearby temple and was so inviting the monks could not resist and jumped over the wall tp partake in this hearty dish.

A poem in praise of the delicious dish was rendered, in which one lined read, “Even Buddha himself would jump over the wall”.

“Buddha jump over the wall” is a highly complex chinese soup or stew cosisting of many ingredients of non-vegeterian origins and requiring one to two full days to create. Recently Chef Steven Cheng had created this soup and make available at his restaraunt Mei Chixuan. This dish usually very expensive but Chef Steven Cheng make it available and affordable, a mini version of “Buddha jump ove the wall”. This dish consists of :

Dried Scallops

Shark Fin

Abalone

Seacucumber

Mushroom

Chicken

Chinese Ham

Dried Bamboo Shoots



Chef Steven’s version of mini “Buddha jump over the wall” or “Fut Tiew Cheong” is gorgeous and delicious. The double boiled soup is so aroma and so tasty and yet so affordable. We love this dish and it is a sure winner.


It is delicious that not left in the bowl except the bone. It is worth to try this gorgeous dish and my next stop would be Mei Chixuan. A bowl of this soup cost only Rm38.80(US$13), so affordable.

Your Sidney
