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.

Master Chef Roy Wong & Ms Aemy Wong

When I received the call to be there for dinner with Chef Roy Wong at Kim Ma, I was left truly excited. It was a dinner that we had planned and was not excuted due to each other’s busy schedule. Well my confession, I usually don’t get much to dine with fabulous Master Chef themselves except attending formal invited dinners and most of time there are not private. That Saturday evening it was a table only for the four of us, with my eating buddy Cleo Chia, Aemy Wong (sister of our famous local actress Aenie Wong), myself and Chef Roy who was in and out of the kitchen cooking for the restaurant customers and us.

Fried Whole Crab with Rice Noodle

What most every time I past through the Klang toll I would imagine myself sitting down for a jolly good porridge, Yes de’porridge and not Bak Kut Teh. A true surprise and yet Klang churns the best Bak Kut Teh. But it is not an ordinary porridge but it is something totally different, it can just knock your heads off. The porridge here infused with superior stock, rich dark sauce and infused with thinly sliced dry squid, petite dry shrimp, small cubes of dry beancurd and also small diced yam. One of the most tasty porridge in town, and so affordable.

This post really go Green and sounds like we had not got enough of St Patrick’s Day! Yeah I had countless pints of Guinness and a great outing time with my makan mates. Truly we had been busy and yet really we do not know how to split ourselves when comes to work! :) Got to say it still one of those exciting challenges that keep us, the boys awake and going. It had been awesome when I took the offer to contribute some of my food excusion experiences to one of our major newspaper, New Straits Times and we got to meet so many interesting people and yet loads of delicious food, also not forgetting as it goes we learned many new things and important tips too.

In April we will be gearing up with loads of recipes to be prepared for our up coming cooking and baking classes (a working partnership with Samsung) and it is definitely going to be exciting and do come, have fun together with us in the kitchen this coming due date (This May I was told)!

Hong Kee Dim Sum, Petaling Jaya

If you are around Petaling Jaya area during the weekends, Hong Kee Dim Sum is the place to be and to have your Dim Sum breakfast. Hong Kee is located at SS22, Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya. I also came to know few food bloggers are going crazy with Hong Kee Dim Sum. As for me I would say Hong Kee Dim Sum is above average.


I got to say I adored this one, “Loh Mai Kai” (Chicken, chinese mushroom steam with glutinous rice). So delicious and just the right recipe!



“Hor Yip Fan” Glutinous rice in lotus leave also one of my favourite. It is similar to “Loh Mai Kai” but with the present of egg yolk, the taste had been really enhanced tremendiously.

“Siew Mai” (meat dumpling) is lovely too. I love those meat texture and so juicy!

“Har Gaw” (shrimp dumpling) is not too bad but prefer that the shrimp be more meaty. The skin was not too thick which is good.


“Woo KoK” (yam dumpling) is great too but I still adore Bidor’s Pun Chun yam dumplings.


The deep fried beancurd sheet with shrimp filling is one of my favoutirt dim sum all the time beside the “Har Gaw”. I love shrimps!

As for this one, the deep fried pastry with shrimps was not my cup of tea at all, I was totally let down as it was not prepared properly. It would had been a fantastic dim sum but due to the oil collected, makes the pastry turned soggy.


Oh! dessert is our specialty but we truely enjoy this two pastries, the sesame ball pastry was good and the egg tart was so marvellous.

So what are we waiting for, let go to Hong Kee for Dim Sum . . . . Sidney

Pastries from Canton-I, One Utama, Petaling Jaya

Got to let you know that I had been eyeing these pastries for ages. I spotted them the first day when I was walking past by Canton-I with Sunny Yaw. What striked me that day was the pineapple paste, looks so petite and so adorable, I told myself I have to get my hands on them and eat it! They look similar to “Woo Kok” (yam pastry) but they are rather petitely presented. Gosh, this little devils really know how to make me salivating! Such a festish and so desirable! This lead to having to own them, but just for a few second as they all end up being process in my bulgy stomach!


A Roasted Meat Pastry for RM2.00each. A very rich pastry, crispy, soft and melting fillings. Such adorable one.

An Egg Tart for RM1.50each. Very flaky pastry and the egg custard is so adorable.

A Piggy Custard Bun for RM2.20each. Very attractive looking bun, soft, silky and as usual the custard is fantastic.

A Crispy BBQ Pork for RM2.00each. A very interesting bun. Soft and yet crispy on the top, not forgetting those lovely BBQ Pork comes with a hint of sweet sauce.

A Pineaple Paste for RM1.50each. Lovely and gorgeous. Not too sweet and yet not too sour. A spot on taste!

I will definitely pack more of this pastry home the next round and not forgeting to invite my friends over for some chinese tea! . . . . .. . . . Sidney
