TAIPING HUAN CHU LENG (GREEN MEE KOO)

Posted by Criz Lai On September - 1 - 2008

TPGMEEKOO01

Who would want to join me for tea? We can have some Green Aliens from Mars and a cup of Old Town White Coffee? Most people have not seen this so called fortune buns as they can only be found in one “Pasar” in Plaza Perbandaran Taiping, Perak (Taiping Bowling Centre is at Level 3). What are they called? They are called Huan Chu Leng (Potato Dragon in Hokkien dialect). Some will call these buns Mee Koo (Steam Tortoise Buns) as the texture for the Huan Chu Leng is exactly the same.

Tortoise is believed to have long lives and thus Mee Koo symbolized longevity. Mee Koo were originally made to celebrate birthdays, or given as an offering to the deities and to the King of the Hungry Ghosts during the Hungry Ghost Festival. It usually comes in the shape of a pink tortoise or peach. Sometimes, they do produce yellow ones for the birthdays of deities. You can get them easily anytime throughout the year. It has become a delicacy amongst the locals, whether it is eaten plain, toasted or fried with eggs like French toast.

Some of the Mee Koo are filled with peanuts mixture or lotus seed paste. However in this modern era, these traditional Mee Koo have evolved into something different such as the Huan Chu Leng which is about 14” in length and Pandan flavored. Moreover it has either kaya (coconut egg jam) or red bean paste rolled up inside as fillings, somewhat like Swiss rolls. The Huan Chu Leng also comes in other versions such as the plain white ones with the same fillings or the yellow ones with chocolate. Somehow, I still prefer the Pandan flavored with kaya which is only RM3 each.

TPGMEEKOO02

The stall is also famous for its Mini Mee Koo (RM3 for a pack of six) which is a round pink colored bun with a flower design on top. I did not manage to get them but it looked like the photo below but with a much more refined and thin flower designs.

TPGMEEKOO03

Unless you are familiar with the road into Taiping town, you would be a bit confused with the directions as Taiping has developed very fast within the last few years. The easiest way to find the Mee Koo shop is to use the Simpang way rather than to drive all the way to Kamunting (Lake Garden and Taiping Zoo). As you exit from the Taiping Plaza toll, turn right at the first traffic light. Drive on and you would pass through a few traffic lights before you reach the main traffic light at Simpang.

Turn left into Jalan Taming Sari. Go over the flyover and drive on until you see Bismillah Roti Canai shop on your left. Turn right into Halaman Pasar. Drive on until you reach a cross junction. Turn left into Jalan Kota. Drive on until you reach the second cross junction (CIMB Bank at the corner) and turn right into Jalan Tupai. Drive straight again after you have reach another cross junction. You will see the Taiping Hawker Center on your left. Take the first turning on your right and you will see the Plaza Perbandaran Taiping there.

The roads here are rather messy as many of the roads are one-way. If you are still unsure, just ask for the direction to “Plaza” or “Taiping Bowling Centre”. The Hokkien speaking locals would be glad to direct you there.

HOMEMADE KAYA @ WANG CAFE

Posted by Criz Lai On August - 21 - 2008

WANGCAFE01

If you are a coffee lover, you should not miss out the stall along the outskirt of Tanjung Tokong. This is one of the best stalls which served good thick and creamy local Hainanese coffee. You can have it either iced or hot. The great thing is that you only pay as you would as in any local coffee shops.

WANGCAFE02

On top of the aromatic coffee, you can also savor their famous “Roti Kiap” aka Toasted Bread with Coconut Jam (Kaya) and Butter. It comes with many versions. You can spread it on top of the toasted bread, in between the bread or even taken with hard boiled eggs. A great choice for tea time.

WANGCAFE03

The kaya is homemade to perfection as you can taste the richness of the eggs in it. You can buy back the kaya in a small plactic container (RM3.00) or in a big one (RM4.00).

COUNTRY’S TID-BITS & CANDIES COTTAGE

Posted by Criz Lai On August - 11 - 2008
Arghhh… I have been hooked on those colorful pebbles for days. I just can’t stop myself from munching these colored stones ever since I attended AMBP’s VIP invitations to the Genting’s Exclusive Dreamz Magic Show on Sunday. My friend said that I have gone nutty. Have I?

TIDBITS01

Haha! Don’t get me wrong. I am still as sober as always. It’s just that I love the taste of the rocky version of M&M. Of course, M&M does not produce this. I got those yummy chocolates from COUNTRY’S TID-BITS & CANDIES COTTAGE at Genting Skyway Complex. This is so far the largest tid-bits shop I have ever been to where I can try out everything without worrying whether I have to pay for them.

TIDBITS02

The shop will allow you to try out whatever preserved fruits, vegetables, nuts, cookies, sweets, jelly beans, biscuits, crackers, etc that you would love to buy. Just fill in the available plastic bags or containers, weigh them at the counter and pay for the amount. It’s so simple. Can you imagine going into a shop and seeing mounts of your favorite munchies at every corner of the shop?

TIDBITS06

Now you can say that I am a bit crazy when it comes to sweet and sour munchies. I could not even believe that I brought almost RM90 worth of tid-bits at one go. Hey! I am not pregnant ok? LOL! Some of the recommended tid-bits that I felt rather good include the colored pebbles, red skin salted peanuts, ginger in cubes and the sweetened cuttlefish. Maybe you have different taste bud but no worries as you have around 100 varieties to choose from. Here are some of the munchies that I had brought:

MING XIANG TAI PASTRY HOUSE

Posted by Criz Lai On August - 1 - 2008

MINGXIANGTAI01

Maybe you are not aware but Penang has another new shop selling nice and oven fresh pastries to keep your mouth nibbling at all time. Originated from Teluk Intan, this shop provides one of the best egg tarts and puffs around Penang. The business started as early as 1975 in a small bungalow in Teluk Intan. By 1979, they started using trishaw to sell the delicacies in trays. That’s the reason you can see the trishaw as part of their logo. What made the pastry so irresistible is that they are handmade until today and the recipes are of the original for the past 30 years. Even the fillings for the pastries are of selected choice pieces of meat and ingredients.

The pastries come in different sizes. Some of them are bite sizes and are great for parties and office meetings. If you plan to have functions or intend to make them as gifts, do try to call up and make your orders. The oven fresh pastries get snatched up real fast. Here are some of the pastries which you can get from the shop.

Chew Thean Yeang Aquarium is just diagonally opposite this shop.

SIN ENG HEONG FOODSTUFF MANUFACTURES

Posted by Criz Lai On July - 21 - 2008

SINENGHEONG01

I always love to bring back something nice and unique for my parents to try when I am somewhere out from my hometown Penang. Last week’s half day trip to Ipoh was a worthwhile one as I managed to get the famous salted chicken as well as some yummy biscuits for my family. Thanks to J2KFM for introducing me to this wonderful biscuit manufacturer’s shop down in Ipoh.

One step into Kedai Biskut Sin Eng Heong, you can practically smell the aroma of freshly baked biscuits everywhere. There were many types of biscuits laid on the tables as well as the shelves. Most of those biscuit would be sold out even before the owners have the time to pack them into individual boxes. Now you know how fresh those biscuits are. The most popular biscuit sold in the shop is their Fluffy Kaya Puff. I have not tasted any that are as delicious as those sold there. Now I am regretting not buying more back home. Here are the photos of the yummy Fluffy Kaya Puff at 50sen each and you can get them to pack for you in a box of 5’s or 10’s.


SINENGHEONG02

Other than the kaya puff, you can even try out their Lou Poh Peng, Salted Egg Biscuit, Spicy Biscuit, Tambun Biscuit (plain, orange, pandan flavored), mini mooncake (baked and snow skin) and many other confectionaries. There were just too many to name here.

On top of all these yummy freshly baked goodies, the shop does sell other products by other biscuit companies such as the thick and thin Chicken Biscuits (Kai Zai Peng) from Long Kee. Surprisingly, they do not have these goodies from Pun Chun which I felt tasted better. Upon checking and having a headache on what to choose from tens of different types of biscuits, I spotted a plastic canister filled with thin crispy Chicken Biscuits (RM12 for about 30pcs). The biscuit was extremely crispy thin and tasted even better than those I had mentioned above. Do watch out for the label under the name Genuine Taste Trading from Kampar (605-466 4803). I have not noticed this label before but they sure did produce the best Chicken Biscuit that I had tasted before. My advice is to buy more than one canister as I am still regretting now for not buying more. 😛

SINENGHEONG08

Getting to the shop would not be hard as Sin Eng Heong is just diagonally opposite the famous Foh San Restaurant along Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri (formerly Jalan Clare). One thing to take note is that please place your orders for the foodstuff, especially the Fluffy Kaya Puff during weekends as they are sold off very early.

GUANGZHOU CAKE HOUSE

Posted by Criz Lai On July - 6 - 2008

GZCAKE01

Whenever you think of having some little tarts or some finger food, you would think of having them in Dim Sum shops. Maybe you are not aware that there is this little shop along Lebuh Carnavon that sells those yummy delights fresh and hot without having to pay as much if you were to dine in a Dim Sum shop. Guangzhou Cake shop has been there for many years and is manned by a few elderly folks. They produced different type of delicacies that will suit your breakfast, lunch as well as tea needs. Some of the food are ideal if you were to have parties.


GZCAKE02

Egg Tarts, especially those mini ones are the hot items in the shop. These are normally sold out before 10am. I was so engrossed in munching my Mini Pandan Egg Tart that I totally forgot to take some shots. Quite typical of me when something that nice are laid right in front of my eyes. Anyway, you can still take a peek at those mini tarts in the photo above.

On a normal week day, the shop will produce tens of different type of delicious treats such as Egg Tarts (Mini Plain and Pandan Flavored as well as plain normal sized ones), Yam Cake, Fried Yam Cake, Radish Cake, Pineapple Tarts, Coconut Tarts, Ma Lai Gou (Pandan or Brown Sugar), Woo Tao Kok, Char Siew Buns, Siew Bao, Glutinous Rice Ball with peanut filling, Sesame Glutinous Rice Ball with peanut filling, Char Siew Sou, Or Nee, Rock Biscuit and many more yummies. Here are some of the items which I had taken shots of.

If you are coming from Prangin Mall along Jalan Dr. Lim Chwee Leong, turn left into Lebuh Carnavon. Drive further until you have passed the second road (Lebuh Kimberley) on your left and you will see the unnamed shoplot displaying those yummy delicacies right in front of the shop. Normally, it would be an elderly lady selling those yummies. Make sure you reach there early to get the best choices or just give them a call to place your order. My recommendation would be the Mini Pandan Egg Tarts (a box of 10’s @ RM4). Make sure you consume them fast while they are fresh. Leaving them for later consumption will make the surface dry and crack.

ADAMCURRYPUFF01

Are you tired of eating curry puff with only spicy potato as the filling? You should try out Adam’s Famous Chicken Curry Puff in Pulau Tikus, Penang. In fact, this stall served the best curry puff in Penang. If you timing is good, you will get pipping hot curry puff straight from the stove. Not only is the curry puff steaming hot, it also has chunks of chicken meat in it. On top of that, it’s only RM1.40 each (will increase to RM1.50 at an unconfirmed date) and big enough to keep your tummy filled.

Other than the curry puff, you can also try out the Nasi Lemak (Steamed Coconut Milk Rice) with spicy anchovy and a slice of egg. As for orders for parties, Adam does not provide anything smaller than that size of Curry Puff. Can you imagine that most of the time these are sold off within minute? On an average day, Adam would have to prepare safely about 800pcs of Curry puff to be sold off at both his stalls.


ADAMCURRYPUFF02

Just turn into Pulau Tikus Market at Jalan Pasar and you will see the stall at the junction of Jalan Moulmein. The stall is in front of Sin Hup Aun Café where as the Green Lane stall will sell in front of Kedai Kopi Genting.

J.CO DONUTS & COFFEE

Posted by Criz Lai On June - 1 - 2008

JCO01

If you are thinking of grabbing the hottest craze in town, you can visit Pavilion Kuala Lumpur to savor the J.Co Donuts. The donuts are made fresh daily and have many flavors such as Hazzle Dazzle, Cheese Me Up, Alcapone, Glazzy, Coco Loco, Miss Green Tea, Why Nuts, JCrown Oreo, Mango Blitz, Oreology, O’ Kaya, Golden Ring and many more. A box of 6 combinations as shown in the photo below will cost RM11.50, inclusive a 5% Government tax.

JCO02

If you are in for sweeter stuff, J.Co would be the right choice to pay a visit. You can even try out their special beverages such as Ice Chocolate, Green T Freeze, Caramelita Freeze, Hot Cappuccino, JCool Yogurt and many more or you can create your own.

Walk into Pavilion Kuala Lumpur along the famous Bintang Walk (Jalan Bukit Bintang). Get a Pavilion map from the customer service counter and find your way to the lower level of the mall. J.Co Donuts & Coffee is just around the corner. Please take note that you might have to queue up for up to an hour just to order your donuts and coffee and the crowd is really great there. Another J.Co branch with not so long queue would be in Sunway Pyramid.

PETALING STREET (CHINATOWN) MA ZHI

Posted by Criz Lai On May - 28 - 2008

MAZHI01

Ma Zhi or steamed blended glutinous rice mixed with pounded peanuts, sesame and sugar is one of the tasty desserts available in Malaysia. Hot steaming glutinous rice is cut into small cubes and coated with a mixture of the three pounded ingredients mentioned above. Certain stalls, especially those in Penang will garnish the Ma Zhi with fried onions.

I have came across a stall down in Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown (Petaling Street) selling a different version. Madam Tang has been selling these yummy desserts for years there. The Ma Zhi comes in different colors and flavors. You can have it original (RM3.50/box) or you can have the mix flavors (RM5/box). The flavors available are apple, banana, grape, kiwi, lemon, lychee, mango, orange, pineapple, ribena, strawberry, black glutinous rice, or pandan. With so many flavors available, it is up to your luck to taste what are the mixed flavors.

MAZHI02

If you are in for a new experience, this is a must try if you are around that area. As for my personal preference, I somehow missed the Penang’s original version with fried onions as it is softer and warmer than the one in Chinatown.

Finding the stall would not be hard. Walk into Petaling Street, Chinatown’s main entrance from Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock (opposite Kota Raya) and you will reach a crossed junction. Hong Leong Bank is at the corner on your left. Turn left into the road (Jalan Hang Lekir) and you will see Madam Tang selling this delicacy on the left.

SHRIMP PASTE FRIED CHICKEN (BELACAN CHICKEN)

Posted by Criz Lai On May - 11 - 2008

BELACAN01

If you are in Malaysia, you should try out the famous local fried chicken, the Belacan Fried Chicken. Belacan is actually a shrimp paste or sauce, made from fermented blended shrimp, sun dried and then cut into fist-sized rectangular blocks. It is raw and need to be toasted before use. Many foreigners are unfamiliar with this condiment as the smell could be too repulsive for them but it is one of the most important ingredients for most of the Malaysian cooking. Nowadays, you can get the processed version of the belacan (Maggi) in bottles, selling widely in the local supermarkets.

I have tried many of such belacan fried chicken stalls in Penang but none can beat the taste and crispiness of the one selling along Kimberley Street. The chicken meat is tender and the belacan taste is well marinated into the meat. The taste is just nice for my taste bud as it is not overly pungent. There are many choice of the chicken that you can buy from the stall, namely the chicken wings, drumsticks, thighs, breast meat, etc.

BELACAN02

BELACAN03

If you are in for other parts of the chicken, there are also the bishop noses, necks and other intestinal parts.

BELACAN05

While you are there, do try out their homemade salty fish tofu. The tofu cubes are deep fried until golden brown color. It has the softness of tofu and the fragrance of salty fish. This stall can be considered for party ideas as the food here is cheap and good.

SALTED FISH TOFU

The stall is situated by the roadside along the busy hawker area of Kimberley Street. If you are coming from Penang Road into Jalan Dr. Lim Chwee Leong, turn left into Jalan Sungai Ujung. When you reach the junction of Kimberley Street, turn left and you will see the stall.
