Cendol House | Taman Mutiara, BM, Penang

We had our lunch at cendol house on last weekend. Before that, we passed by this shop house but never give them a try. Since they claimed that "We served best cendol in town", so we give it a try. This shop not only sell cendol, but also laksa, nasi lemak, nasi kunyit with curry chicken. Two of us ordered one each to try. Cendol is ok but this small bowl cost RM2. Santan (coconut milk) taste is not very thick but when mix with brown/coconut sugar syrup, it tasted good. Ingredients in cendol include red bean and cendol.

 

Pepper Lunch | Japan

It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

 

Low Sugar Coffee Chiffon Cake Recipe

This cake is specially dedicated to an OLD baby boy that was born on 67 years ago, exactly 33 years earlier than my OLD baby Camus. Now, the OLDer baby has diabetes and cannot consume much sugar. Everytime I bake a cake, he will complain that my cake is tooooooooo sweet. To cater for his needs, I change my chiffon cake recipe to low sugar version, I choose coffee flavour because... besides my mummy, the one that he cannot let go and cannot survive without is COFFEE...and yes, the "he" I mentioned here is my lovely daddy! It has been long time I want to come out with low sugar version cake, pastry, and etc, and being lazy is my natural instinct. Dad's birthday is a good reason for me to start my low sugar recipe. Ingredients5 egg yolks (about 85g)10g sugar75g hot water + 10g instant coffee (mix well)1tbsp coffee paste70g corn oil120g cake flour 5 egg whites (about 200g)45g sugar1/2tsp cream of tartar Method (step by step picture here)1. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light.2. Add in corn oil, mix well.3. Add in coffee water and coffee paste, mix well.4. Sift in flour, stir until well combined. You will get a thick mixture now.5. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer at low speed until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar.6. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is foamy and white in color now).7. Slowly add in sugar in few badges, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed.8. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined. You will get a light mixture.9. Change hand whisk to rubber spatula, fold in 1/2 of the remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now).10. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined (your mixture should be very light and volume now).11. Pour batter into chiffon pan. Using satay stick / chopstick, run around baking pan side and then draw curly pattern all the way in the middle and bang pan on counter top to remove big bubbles. Level the surface and bake in preheated oven at 160C with fan forced for 45 minutes or until cooked.12. When cooked, remove from oven and invert chiffon pan immediately to prevent shrinkage. The pan must remain inverted until fully cool.13. To remove chiffon cake from pan, carefully run the pan outer, inner and bottom side with thin spatula or knife. Invert pan to remove cake on big serving plate. At first I was afraid the cake will shrink after reduce half of the sugar quantity, but I am very happy to see the cake turn out very nice. For taste wise, my dad able to accept this sweetness level by finished 1~2 pieces of the cake. Even though the level of sweetness has reduce, but the coffee fragrance did brought me a "Yes, delicious!" comment from all the other family members. I am very happy to say that I had successfully make a low sugar birthday cake for dad this year, wish him happy birthday, healty and properous day ahead!

USSR_11We just had a short trip to Langkawi recently. It is an unforgetable trip with some good and bad experience. Thank God that it was a raining day on the first day when we just arrived. The weather was great and cooling, we really enjoyed it. We stay at Berjaya hotel, it is a very relaxing resort that can temperary keep us away from our busy life in town. On the first night, with "suggestion" from "GPS", we got to know this Russian restaurant at Harbour Park nearby our hotel, it is USSR restaurant.

Very nice interior design of the restaurant

After look through the menu, we decided to have our dinner here. We ordered 3 different sets of meal.

USSR_6

Menu

I was expected to see a steak when I order Beef Strogana (RM29), but when the food was served, opppsss, my "steak" was cut into so many pieces. From there I knew, that was "Russian food". The beef was a bit hard for me, but the taste was delicious and creamy. The waitress recommend for an extra bowl of rice to eat with this, but I choose not to have it.

Beef Strogana

If you don't like creamy, you may choose Delssian Village (RM30), the beef was cut into small pieces also and top with cheese, and it was baked. I personally prefer this.

Camus ordered Fish in Mon-ry (RM28), the fish is fried and served with slice tomato and top with cheese as well. It was very delicious too although tasted a bit salty.

Fish in Mon-ry

For drink, Camus ordered plain homemade yogurt drink (RM8), it was very thick and pure milk taste. I personally don't like it as I do not like milk. I prefer coconut (RM6).

We were satisfied with the food and enviroument there, but the food is quite expensive, total of RM120 for 3 persons.
