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.
