Healthy Living, Healthy Eating

no1

These days more and more of us are getting aware about our health and have become more conscious on what we consumer. Therefore healthy living by healthy eating is one way to stay in good shape and by going organic it is a must! Organic Life Café is the place to be when it comes to healthy eating. The food served here is awesomely delicious, unique and creative, something I never thought of having and also organic. They sell organic products too at the end corner of the café which I find them unique and so convenient.

As the day was hot and dry, in order to kill my thirst, I had a glass of Red Surprise fruit juice (beetroot, apple and pineapple) which was so delicious, unique and good for blood circulation. Next is the bright orangy pineapple juice which is good for digestion. I also managed to sip into the delicious wheat grass, apple and lemon mixed juice which is good for detoxing. All for the sudden I was getting excited for the food that was coming!

Now I got to recommend you this dish, so amazing and so beautiful, it is the Hor Fun Roll. It is a flat rice noodle and seaweed roll up stuffed with vegetable served with special home made chilli sauce. The roll was roll up so excellently and I know I can’t roll the way they roll them.

I always have this passion of having beancurd sushi (a japanese beancurd stuffed with japanese rice) and I find it here too but presented in a very different way, they called it “Foo Chok” sushi roll. Yes, very unique with a twist, beancurd pockets stuffed with rice, sweet corn, shredded carrot, pineapple, bean sprouts and a homemade pineapple sauce. It is so likeable and I am definitely a fan of this one!

Next came the golden basket, a simple lightly fried potato basket with diced capsicum, water chestnuts, cashew nuts, mushroom, konnyaku and baby corn. Tasted good but I was longing for more surprises.

One of my favorite is Mee Siam and without fail, I will visit the kopitiam here but I was surprised that I can have it here too. Taste was good and it was the right type of noodle used. I got to say I did wallop all!

When I saw the next dish, there was a sparkle on my face. It was the broccoli soup, a soup I end up making when I was abroad studying. It had been ages that I had this and what a relief. Now I got to compare mine and this, well . . . of course mine is always superior but I got to say theirs was not far from mine. Good balance of brocolli taste, creamy and the texture was good.

I like this Vietnamese noodle called Sweet and Sour noodle. As you can see there are a lot of great toppings such as shredded vegetables, tofu and also sliced mushroom. The uniqueness lies beneath the toppings, the noodle top with the sweet and sour sauce. We had to mix them all up first before we were able to taste this dish which was so awesomely good.

The pineapple fried rice was good too and I like them to be served on the pineapple so tropical like the do it here!

Claypot ‘Lui Cha’ set is so authentic, I just can fall in love with it so easily, so fresh, so pure and so different. You can see the beautiful arrangement and the unique colours of assorted vegetables and you eat it together with the warm herbal soup.

We end the day with the Viet Spring roll-ups which caught me by surprise. They are so finely roll and so skillful as you can’t see any flawless. This dish consists of delicate rice wrappers filled with vermicelli, lettuce, carrots, cucumber and mint leaves.

Organic Life café is a place to be, the food served here is unique with a delicate taste that suits everyone, what more can you ask for a healthy living lifestyle and healthy eating and yet so organic! . . . . . . . Yours Sidney

Red Wine Baby Pork Ribs

I love red wine, they are lovely to drink and also lovely to cook with. I still remember when I was in Ireland, few yers back, I consumed red wine just like drink grape juice or to be precise, like drinking water…..lol. I guess it is not easy to consume red wine as often as I want since I am back now in KL as they are expensive, oh, very expensive. So I decided to make this dish called Red Wine Baby Pork Ribs.

Recently my blogging pal, East Meets West Kitchen posted about her new venture into vegetable and fruit carving and I too decided to knife out a gold fish using tomato, cucumber and red chilly tip. I used tomato for the head and body, cucumber for the fins and red chilly tips for the eyes.

Back to the Red Wine Baby Pork Ribs, I firstly used chinese wine and pineapple juice to marinate the baby pork rib for over night. Then add some red food colouring. Once properly marinated then draining off the excess liquid. Add egg, corn flour and seasoning to the baby pork ribs. Deep fried them till they are cooked. As the baby ribs are getting cooked, you can now make the sauce. Fry garlic and onion, then add red wine and sugar. One the sauce reach the boiling stage, add your cooked baby pork ribs. Tossed them and then transfer them to your serving dish. Add the garnish.

300gm baby pork rib
100ml pineapple juice
30ml chinese wine

2cloves crushed garlic
1/2 medium size onion(chop finely)
50ml red wine
1 teaspoon sugar

Well this red wine baby pork ribs dish is really gorgeous and serve well with a bowl of steam white rice.

Hope this dish will give you some inspiration to try them out in your kitchen for your special guess or even for a romantic dinner for two.
