Dim Sum Maestro Yau Kim Yew

He is brilliant yet he is sure a young and talented, Dim Sum Maestro Yau Kim Yew. I love his creativite play and truly a persone who will put upmost effort to think out of the box when comes to Dim Sum. Some may go overboard with their creation but Maestro Yau is one of those chefs that who I know who will go all out to maintain the substance and traditiion of a little petite dim sum. He is so adoreable yet his dim sum is something to die for.

It had been sometime now that I had not been updating my blog but I am sure you would have caught me on my facebook (Sidney Kan). For a simple reason I had left my professorship and had been on light travelling. The destinations that had my foot marks were Langkawi, Bangkok and Jakarta. It was not soul-searching but rather a free and easy travelling. Seeing and eating were my objectives.

Back to this post, yet another favourite food tasting of mine I had recemtly. This time I caught up with a fantastic Master Dim Sum Chef Yoon Kong Thye who is based at Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant. He is a truly an artisan on what he creates best, a fabulous outstanding Dim Sum. Here, I got to confess that I had a fabulous time when I get to meet up with him at his open designed kitchen. :)

I was truly excited with the Tao, one of the latest opening Chinese restaurant in town. Tao found it’s way at The InterContinental Hotel right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur along Jalan Ampang. The interior was filled with black shaded cabinets that filled with a variety of Chinese teapots while one corner of the bright glass wall was filled the painted sakura flowers. I got to compliment Tao for having such a beautiful showcase ceiling lightings as the main centre piece.

Norman Musa Fires Up His Curries in UK & his Cookbook Winners

Hello all

It has been a while again since I last wrote about my ‘journey’. I have to say it has been mad crazy with my schedule in the last couple of months. I went back twice to Malaysia within 2 weeks. Not because I can afford it but because of my duty to promote Malaysian food in the UK.

In the last two months, I was busy with many cooking demos like Manchester Food & Drink Festival, Northwest Food Lovers Festival and also touring all Wing Yip Chinese Superstores in the UK. Started in Manchester, where I am based and then followed by Croydon, Cricklewood and Birmingham. The reception was overwhelming. What make it so good is the fact that I met many Malaysians who have lived in London for a very long time and some for more than 40 years and yet still craving for Malaysian food. They were very supportive knowing that I am promoting the cuisine and my cookbook ‘Malaysian Food’ in the UK.

Dine with Pleasure

DSCN5027A

This restaurant CUBES, caught my eyes when I was at Palm Square Jaya One, Petaling Jaya when I was meeting some of my friends over a late night coffee at one of the Kopitiam there. I also noticed there were a few new eatery places mushrooming at this location so I decided to have at try at this restaurant first, a fusion chinese fine dining.

DSCN5030ADSCN5079ADSCN5066A

The setting of this restaurant was very comfortable and atmosphere was very relaxing plus there was also a wine bar, got to say I love my wine too.

DSCN5016A

I always love braised peanuts in soya sauce as there are soft, nutty and fragrant plus not forgetting my hot shrimp chilly.

DSCN5050A

Our first order was the crispy aromatic duck served with soft pancakes. Got to confess that I had not eaten such a dish since I came back from Scotalnd which was about nearly 8 years ago. “Oh! boy” It was one of my favourite dishes and I tried to learn how to make it at home but got to say mine was not as compartible with the chefs. The duck was well cooked till it was fragrant when it was deep fried. The meat was moist and not too dried. The meat was shredded and placed onto the pancake before wrapping, together garnished with deliciously “Hoi Sin” sauce and sliced cucumber plus spring onion.

The next tofu dish was authentic awesome. The beancurd tofu itself was infused with cooked greens. The dish was garnished with steamed melon and top with dried scallop and double boiled chicken broth sauce.

DSCN5076A

The dished appeared infront of us was our roasted spare ribs. This dish was so delicious as it came with two different coated sauces, honey glazed and button mushroom in black peppered sauce. Both were very unique and tasted incredible, a thumbs up to the chef’s creativeness and also the well balance taste.

DSCN5108A

Next we ordered the Portugese Prawns. I was informed that the dish was influenced by the chef’s wife who happened to be from Portugal. The prawns were well battered and crispy while the sauce really complimented the dish well.

DSCN5085A

The last dish that came was a great mixture of stir fried mushrooms. It was delicious and so desirable.

We had a great nite dinning at the CUBES and will defintely be back for . . . crispy aromatic duck, by the way I away wrapped my pduck pancakes with extra hot dried prawn chillies! . . . Sidney

teckieepastaAkerabupastaA

Teckiee’s entry is Caramelised Pork with Spaghetti Omelet and it is very creative in presenting this dish. A unique dish layered with spagehetti pancake over the delicious sweet caramelised pork. This dish can be served individually too.

Lianne’s Kampong Pasta is such a cultured dish and truely transport us back to the origin of local delicate malay cuisine. The taste of the fish in this dish is awesome, and with the freshness of the herbs and sprouts, they enrich this dish. I would describe this as a delicate pasta salad to die for.

Both of our winners will recieve each a beautiful stainless steel pasta pot from San Remo. San Remo will get in touch with you very soon. Thank you for your gorgeous recipes.

The Best Apong at Jalan Burma, Penang

Apong is a type of pancake that you can get in Malaysia. Strangely I am not an Apong fan but now I desire and crave for them so much that I search for them in the country, wherever I go.

Penang island….. is a place for Apong?… truely it is… The Apong Heaven,….. so fluffy, so creamy, so light, so soft and yet with the taste and a hint of sweetcorn and ripe juicy banana.

You can find these two Apong stalls just at the roadside of Jalan Burma, Penang and it is only RM0.30 (US0.10) a piece……. such a bargain for such lovely dessert. This Apong can be taken while they are warm and cold but I really prefer when there are warm….. so soft and so creamy, lovely as it melts in your mouth. I would say they are goes well with a cuppa of tea or coffee.

At each batches, nine Apongs can be generated from the moulded pan and takes about 5-6 minutes to ready. Therefore if you want to taste this heavenly delicious Apongs, you may need to place order them in advance or even mobile them, if not you may need to wait half an hour for yours. I was shocked when most customers order at least twenty pieces at a time…….lol…. we ordered thirty pieces!…lol


If you are in Penang Island , do not miss this lovely pancakes…. my truely heaven!
