Foods around Senado Square @ Macau

After all the hotel visits (without picture….I will try to make this more like a travelling blog instead of food blog soon), here we are, at Senado Square. A place you can’t say you been to Macau if you never visit here.

Thanks god too, after raining for the whole morning, it’s finally stopped at around 2 PM and we can explore around here.

While there are many historical buildings around here, there are many food stalls around too. I just love the bubble milk tea here, and I especially enjoy their smaller than usual bubble. 8.0/10

Mo Sang Kor Bah Kut Teh @ Pandamaran, Klang

When I am hunting for Ah Her Bah Kut Teh at pandamaran, Klang, I saw Mo Sang Kor Bah Kut Teh on the way. Well, now I now, what I gonna eat for my breakfast in few days time. However, this early morning Bah Kut Teh at the morning of Christmas is the single most expansive Bah Kut Teh I ever had, which cost me almost RM1000 on it.

As always, the feast, early in the morning. I actually leave my hotel in Kuala Lumpur at around 6.15AM, again, just to avoid the crowd.

One of the major difference between Ah Her and here is the taste of Chinese medicine. At Ah Her, the soup itself is like full with pork taste only, while the soup here at Mo Sang Kor got a slight hint of Chinese medicine taste, so it’s usually up to which version you like. Both of them, the soup are equally thick and super flavourful.

The ‘sai kuat’ (small bone) is awesome too with the thick skin and fat and tenderrrrs meat!

Ah Her Bah Kut Teh @ Pandamaran,Klang

Klang…the holy place for Bah Kut Teh, the place where Bah Kut Teh was founded, the place which has worst road condition (you will know why soon), the place that I loved and hoped to live just because of it’s Bah Kut Teh.

In my last trip down to Kuala Lumpur for Christmas holidays, I decided to visit Pandamaran, a small town in Klang which boast 2 great Bah Kut Teh stalls, which 1 of them is Ah Her Bah Kut Teh. Since I am traveling from Sungai Petani, I timed myself well. I MUST reach Pandamaran by 5PM, or hell will break through.

Reasons? I had heard too many stories saying that Ah Her will be super crowded if you arrive anytime after 5.30PM, and I myself know well that if I were want to enter Klang after working hours, I might be stuck in jam for hours! Besides, since I had totally no idea where is Pandamaran, or how to go there, and I am only armed with my iPhone with PapagoM6 installed in it, it might take me sometime to actually find the place.

Hence, I started my journey at 12PM from Sungai Petani, all the way down… my holy place – Klang.

Stopping only once for pee and a light lunch, and with little cars on the road, great GPS, I reach in front of Ah Her Bah Kut Teh at around 4.30PM.

Since they only start business at 5.00PM, we waited in the car until 4.45PM. At  this time, the stall is still…..very empty.

Homecook: Spicy Pork with salted vegetable

If there is 1 dish that I enjoy eating it over and over again, and can cook 1 big pot to be eated for meals, then it’s definitely this – Spicy Pork with salted vegetable.

It’s a simple dish to cook and prepare, with the main ingredients as below:

i) 3 layer pork sliced to small pieces

ii) Roasted Pork sliced to small pieces

iii) Beancurd sliced to small cube

iv )Salted Vegetable cut to small pieces

Things to take note:

a) There are 2 types of salted vegetables in the market. Choose the type as shown in the picture below.

b) You need to wash the salted vegetables thoroughly, as it’s quite dirty when bought. You will need to soak the salted vegetables into water for at least 20 minutes to ensure it won’t be too salty.

c)  Roasted pork are used to enhance the taste of the dish. You can just use 3 layer pork to substitute it.

d)  The proportion of the main ingredients is totally up to you. You can always choose to have more vegetables and less meat, or more beancurd. It’s totally up to your choice. There ain’t any golden rule to it.

e)  DO NOT add salt when cooking since the salted vegetables is already salty enough.

Perak Road Bak Zhang @ Penang

Bak Zhang is a traditional Chinese food that is traditionally eaten during the dragon boat festival (5th day of the 5th month in the lunar calender). However, a Bak Zhang good can always be my breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea time, dinner and even supper!

Bak Zhang is always made of glutinous rice, with fillings such as Chinese sausage, Char Siew, salted pork, shrimps and etc. Yes, it’s all about meat man! Hence the reason why I love it so much!
