Yam Rice 芋饭 | Soon Hing Kopitiam 顺兴茶餐室 | Chai Leng Park, Perai

We would like to introduce you the Yam Rice (芋饭)that located at Soon Hing Kopitiam (顺兴茶餐室), Chai Leng Park. This is a nice Yam Rice. However, not many people know about it. Most of the people know the other 2 Yam Rice stalls that located near by the Chai Leng Park Post Office. What's special about this Yam Rice? Today, let us tell you more about the Yam Rice at Soon Hing Kopitiam.

Christmas Dinner Celebration | Little Cottage, Penang

First of all, I would like to apologize to MnY blog's owner (Camus and myself) for publishing a poor quality photos. As mentioned in "About Us", the purpose of creating MnYfoodtalk.com is to share anything that is related to food. We will not only share "good" food but also "bad" food. Either "bad in taste", "bad in service", "bad in price" or anything else. Today, we are going to share our year 2010 Christmas dinner celebration experience here.

 

Temptation Chocolate Banana Cake Recipe

I am back again to bake a birthday cake, a fresh cream birthday cake. This time I make chocolate banana cake for Camus's birthday. To me, I am lazy to make this type of cake as I will need to spend 3 hours and above (can up to 5~6 hours) to make a whole cake, from weighting ingredients to decorate the cake. Also, I will accumulate the left over ingredients like fresh cream, sponge cake mix and some others for months, or years...until they are expired...then throw them away. I really feel wasted to throw away those ingredients, and many times I also very lazy to make a move to stand in kitchen for whole afternoon on my weekend to make this type of cake. Of course, some time I "got form got ohm", I will do it happily just like this time, another chocolate banana cake was born in my kitchen, for an OLD baby that was born on 34 years ago. Let me share the recipe of this chocolate banana cake with photos I have taken. RecipeIngredientsChocolate Sponge Cake260g sponge cake mix260g eggs70g hot water1tbsp chocolate powder80g melted butter Chocolate Ganache100g chocolate (cut to small pieces)50g fresh milk Filling400g whipped fresh cream150g chocolate ganache (you may add all or leave some for decoration)3tbsp coffee kahlua (optional)8~10pcs banana (I used pisang "awak" as we like the "compact and smooth" texture of this banana) MethodFor chocolate sponge cake:1. Mix chocolate powder and hot water.2. Use mixer, beat sponge cake mix and eggs in high speed for 6 minutes. 3. Switch to medium speed and slowly pour in chocolate liquid from step 1 to sponge egg mixture and beat for another 2 minutes.4. Lastly, combine melted butter with sponge mixture.Hint: To prevent sponge mixture separated from melted butter, take a portion of mixture combine with melted butter first, then just combine with the rest of mixture.5. Pour chocolate sponge mixture into baking pan, bake at preheated oven (160C) for 40 minutes or until cooked.6. When the cake is cool, slice to 3 pieces in horizontal. For chocolate Ganache:1. Put chocolate and milk in a pot/bowl, double boil until chocolate is melted. For filling:1. Mix whipped cream and chocolate ganache until combine = chocolate cream.2. Remove banana skin, slice half into horizontal. To assemble cake:1. Place a slice of chocolate sponge cake on cake board.2. Evenly pour a table spoon of coffee kahlua on sponge cake.3. Spread a thin layer of chocolate cream with spatula on top of sponge cake.4. Arrange banana on top of chocolate cream.5. Spread another thin layer of chocolate cream to sandwich the banana.6. Sandwich cream and banana with second slice of chocolate cake.7. Repeat step 2~6 for second layer.8. For last layer, pour a table spoon of coffee kahlua on sponge cake.9. Decorate accordingly. Before ending this post, I would like to wish Camus "Happy Birthday" and "Happy Everyday"!

Logo31Merry Christmas 2015! We had four days holiday on this year Christmas, a super happy holiday mood to welcome this year Christmas.

We celebrated our Christmas at The View Restaurant, with their semi-buffet menu that can opt for either Turkey or Lamb for the main course. We get one Lamb and the other was rib eye steak that not in the menu.

Before the soup was served, we started with the buffet. Not much choices but some of them taste really good. They have salad, fingers food, fruits, and more. Desserts were one of my main focus, their tiramisu is one of the best that I had ever ate.

IMG_20150406_145954Camus and I took a day off from our busy life to enjoy our own sweet time. He brought me to this cafe located at Lebuh Macallum. He told me we can have our breakfast with coffee and bread kind of breakfast which I like. We arrived there on weekday morning around 10:30am and the cafe was very empty, only one customer during the time we were there. Plenty of parking space outside the cafe.

Cakes at RM13 per piece!

After enter the cafe, a young man passed us a menu, we seated and read through the menu. I was shocked when look at the menu and do not know what to order at the first glance, I focus on the price and feel hard to choose my meal as they are very expensive to me. In the end, we get one Macallum breakfast and Smoked Salmon Bagel, one cafe latte and one cappucino, there gone our RM55!

IMG_20150406_150546

Talk about the cafe, I found this cafe is quite nice as the fragrance really attracted me when I first enter the cafe. I like the fragrance and it is quite different with other cafe as I can smell something soury. I am not sure what is this fragrance until I get my latte and cappucino. The sweet aroma of coffee taking over my senses, they are creamy, smooth coffee I longed for.

IMG_20150406_145954

Cappucino and Latte

Maccallum breasfast came with sunny side up, avocado, chicken frankfurter, chicken bacon, grilled capsicum, baked potatoes, bread and salad. Portion is quite big. I like the chicken frankfurter which the size like german sausage.

IMG_20150402_152229

Smoked salmon bagel came with smoked salmon with wasabi cream cheese, rocket leaves and pinch of capers. I do not understand most of the terms mentioned in the menu except for "smoked salmon". Now as I am writing, I compare the menu and photo I took, I cannot find "wasabi cream cheese" from my photo, why? Mana dia pi? Oh, the one spread between the bagel? It's wasabi cream cheese? Not butter? To me, this smoked salmon has nothing special but I do like rocket leaves. And now I know what is capers, it is the small tiny things appeared on top of the roll smoked salmon. Ooppsss, we do not finish that even though only served with 3 biji, what a waste? I thought they were just a decoration to the smoked salmon...

IMG_20150406_145703

Overall, Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe is a good place to enjoy coffee but sincerely, it was a very expensive experience to me.

CoffeeSmith_9When there are more and more cafe open in Penang, I wish I could visit them one by one to enjoy a cup of coffee but I only managed to go one of them recently. It is Coffee Smith that located at Maritime Piazza, Karpal Singh Drive.

We went there during Friday lunch, it was very crowded and we had to wait for a while to get our seat. The waiter gave us few copies of menu which I tought it was an advertisement booklet. I found it is quite special to printed menu in this way.

CoffeeSmith_8

After grance through the menu, I found that their foods are quite pricey. In fact most of the cafes are selling foods at higher price range nowadays.

I ordered brunch set "Benny Duck Egg and English Muffin", it came with two duck eggs and ham on bread, two pieces of mini hamburger steak (very mini), fries and salad. This set includes one small cup of fruit juice and black coffee, RM24. The way they serve on "wooden plate" is special but I wonder how they clean the plate? Will it remained very clean after use for many times, will the stain leave behind the wooden material?

CoffeeSmith

CoffeeSmith_6

They serve spaghetti too, Spring Vegetable Spaghetti at RM16.

CoffeeSmith_1

Hokkaido Scallops Cream Noodle at RM22. Portion was not big but taste creamy and delicious, you can find two scallops in the plate.

CoffeeSmith_2

Grilled Sandwich, Sicilion Chicken, RM14. I like the grill toast pattern.

CoffeeSmith_3

Caramel Macchiato, RM11. Nice latte art...

Heng Thai Seafood Restaurant (Thai-Chinese food) | Raja Uda PDF Print E-mail

HengThai_1We found one Chinese-Thai food restaurant few weeks ago at Raja Uda, it was not our first intention to dine there. We were hungry and looking for something good and special for our dinner, we went to Kampung Baru for our first stop, looking for Japanese food, but there was an event held at Kampung Baru causing heavy traffic jam.

We changed our dinner place to Salad Bowl at Chain Ferry, bad luck, it was closed on that day. We drove towards Raja Uda direction, Sawara steamboat get our attention and we sat in to read the menu. After 5 minutes, we walked out from Sawara due to super expensive of the meal. Finally, we went in this not so attractive but crowded restaurant.

It was already 9pm and after make order, still have to wait for another 25-30minutes. I can say that it was worth waiting as the dishes that we ordered taste delicious and very similar to Thai local taste.

That time was only Camus and myself, two persons cannot order much. One big fish, two big prawns and a plate of mix vegetable make us very full and satisfied.

This assam Africa fish taste superb, hot, spicy and sour, just like assam soup. It came with some chinese cabbage too, very appetizing. This assam big fish cost about RM28, to me it is very worth as you will get big fish with delicious soup and vegetable in it.

HengThai_3

When make order, the waiter asked is 4 big prawns enough for us? We said yes, but after that, he reduce our order to 2 big prawns. I was thinking, har? 2 prawn nia where got enough? But for first time, I thought it would be good to try 2 first, in case not delicious. When they served, I was shocked as big head prawn really big in size, luckily we did not order 4, and this 2 big head prawn cost us RM40. Gosh! If I order 4, I have to pay for RM80!! This plate of big head prawns was super delicious, sprinkle with chopped garlic and bird chili on top. They steamed with a kind of sauce, slightly sour, very special and delicious, if you ask me how the big prawn taste, I can say it tasted like lobster and crab. How good if I have the recipe?

HengThai_1

Mix vegetable, RM8 taste good too. They cooked with 4 types of vegetables.

HengThai_2

To us, this is one of the best Thai food restaurant (another one is Mae Salong in Sungai Petani). They open during lunch time too. If you are looking for Thai food, visit this restaurant and give it a try.

Day6_11Day6

Today is our last day in Chiang Mai, I hope it was our first day here. Our last destination was to Warorot Market. You can find all kind of stuff from this market, fresh flower, clothes, shoes, fabric, kitchen utensil, tower, food and many more. It is a local market where their local people will come here to buy their things.

第六天

今天是清迈的最后一天了,实在是不舍得回啊!但计划中要去的地方都去了,只剩下Warorot Market。从网上得知这里是本地人逛的市场,东西比较便宜又应有尽有。我们乘搭双条抵达该处,也是20Baht一个人。在这儿,从鲜花,衣服,鞋子,布,厨房用具,毛巾,吃的用的都有。

我们在这里买了几匹布,衣服,皮带,草席帽,猪皮等,就完成了清迈的血拚。回到酒店收拾好行李后,到附近吃午餐。

Day6_9

We had the chance to taste their famous mango glutinous rice before we came back. It was really delicious. They also have durian glutinous rice which is very special and hard to get it from other place.

第一天来到这卖芒果糯米饭的摊口,看见他们已经收挡,还好最后一天还来得及吃上一碟芒果糯米饭及榴莲糯米饭,总算安心了。

吃后觉得还是不太饱,就走到对面卖水摊口,买了一杯椰水,这椰水啊,真的很香很甜,才10Baht一大杯。Camus喝的最开心。

Day6_15

Then we go to another shop sells beef noodle which located the same row as mango glutinous rice.

我们也去到芒果糯米饭同排的面店,也不知他们卖什么,随便叫了一碗米粉汤面,原来是牛腩米粉汤,真的非常好吃。

After meal, we took Song Theaw to airport at 50Baht per person and end our journey at Chiang Mai.

之后,我们乘搭双条(50Baht一个人)抵达清迈机场,乘搭飞机飞回我国。就这样,结束了我们的清迈之旅。

 

旅途感想:

这次的旅行,可是我们那么多次的旅途中,其中一次很令我们大开眼界,喜出望外,惊喜连连的旅途。很多事件实在是让我们刮目相看,所以给我们留下了很多难忘及美好的回忆。

虽然这次的旅程花费超出预计,但受益良多,实在是让我们增广见闻。我觉得嘛,人生就得享受,懂得赚的同时,必须懂得花,只要不过于奢侈就行嘛。当地的食物,风俗,人情,景点,都让我们难以忘怀,真的还想再去多几次。清迈,是我们非常推荐的一个旅游城市,您也不妨亲自到哪儿体会体会当地的人情世故吧!

今天我们参与大象营一日游,一个人是1400Baht,有司机到酒店接我们。这一日游行程包括乘坐竹筒船,看大象表演,参观长颈村,免费午餐,乘坐牛车,骑大象,参观花园及蝴蝶公园。

Bamboo riding

Every activity was very attractive to us except for visit to orchid and butterfly farm. We truly respect the elephants' trainers as their elephants are all very well trained. You will experience how elephant drawing with their long nose.

除了参观花园及蝴蝶公园,每项都是很特别的。大象表演简直是让人大开眼界,真不能不佩服工作人员们平日的训练,看上去大象们即聪明又很能听指令。

After visit to long neck village, we had our lunch. It was buffet style lunch with fried chicken, rice, drink, fruit, etc.

参观完长颈村后,我们就吃午餐。午餐是自由式的,有不同的简单肉菜,白饭,水果,茶水等等。

 

After lunch, we ride on oxford and elephant. It was a very scary experience, I was really afraid that the oxford and elephant will do something to me, or I will fall down from elephant. Scary...

吃饱后我们乘坐牛车和骑大象。前者已让我觉得心慌慌,担心牛车会翻车。后者更加让我不放心,想象自己坐在高处,慢慢的在"空中"荡漾,真的很恐怖,又担心大象突然发癫,把我们甩下。还记得有一幕,当大象正从陆地下水的时候,大象前脚突然下去有深度的河,镇了一大下,吓得半条命,喊了好大声,一直期盼快点完成这路程。想想,真的很恐怖,要是有畏高的人,肯定比我还害怕。

Day5_26

The things sell in Kalare night bazaar are more expensive compare to Saturday and Sunday market. We had our dinner at food court before back to hotel.

我们觉得Kalare night bazaar的价钱比夜市场的还要贵,吃的用的也比较贵,所以就走马看花而已。走了好久,都不见好吃的,直到要回前,来到美食中心,所以就在这儿吃饱后才回酒店。

Tuk tuk, a "mini" taxi in Chiang Mai, with one driver and up to 2 passengers at the back. Like combination of motorbike and trishaw, is my favorite transport in Chiang Mai. I fall in love with this vehicle after my first ride on it. It costs 60Baht for two of us from night bazaar back to our hotel in Chiang Mai city. Best to take it at night with your love one, windy windy feel... "feng" left "feng" right...romantic...I have a simple wish, you know? I just wish I can own a tuk tuk, drive here and there, or sometime hire somebody to fetch me and dear Camus "feng" here "feng" there. Too bad, the distance from night bazaar to our hotel is too short, I don't really fully enjoy and we had already arrived at the destination. Now, can someone tell me how much does one tuk tuk cost in Chiang Mai?

我们选择tuk tuk车回酒店,60Baht一辆,挺便宜的。我一坐就喜欢上了这tuktuk车,机车感觉轻轻的在路上奔驰,夜里凉风吹来,好舒服,司机走的路线和双条不同,都是走小巷,所以很快就抵达酒店。tuk tuk车,我真是爱死你了。
