Coffee Smith 咖啡史密斯 | Maritime Piazza, Karpal Singh Drive, Georgetown, Penang.

When 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. 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? They serve spaghetti too, Spring Vegetable Spaghetti at RM16. Hokkaido Scallops Cream Noodle at RM22. Portion was not big but taste creamy and delicious, you can find two scallops in the plate. Grilled Sandwich, Sicilion Chicken, RM14. I like the grill toast pattern. Caramel Macchiato, RM11. Nice latte art...

Sibu Kampua Mee 寺巫干盘面

Being a Malaysian, I am a bit(yes, a bit only) shy to say that I have never been to Sarawak. I give myself an excuse that it is too far away from my lovely hometown, Penang island. The air ticket is quite expensive to travel from here to there. But, I think that I am lucky enough to know a friend from Sarawak, which willing to share with us the recipe of their local famous food, Kampua mee ("Gam Mua" noodle (干盘面)). Kampua mee is from Sibu and it is Fuzhou (福州) food. My first impression about Kampua was it almost same as dry Wan Tan Mee (干云吞面), as the sauce is black in colour and it is dry mee. Well, look at the recipe and cooking method, let's compare the differences.

DurianCrepe_8After durian butter cake, I have tried with another new type of cake, durian crepe cake. I ate my first mille crepe during my stay in Japan. From there, I get to know mille crepe, a very delicious and special cake. Last year, I ordered one peanut butter mille crepe for Camus on his birthday, and it tasted heavenly.

I wanted to make my own crepe too but due to time concern, I have no chance to make one. This time, since it is durian season, I make a durian crepe.

Besides frozen cheese cake, this is another type of cake where you can make it without oven. The way of making the crepe is the same as making pan cake. You just need to fried the crepe piece by piece, prepare the filling and stack the crepe together with the filling until you get a perfect cake.

So, let's go to the ingredients:

For crepe:
200g plain flour
3 eggs
3/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
400ml milk
3/4 tsp vanilla essence
70g melted butter

For filling
450g durian fresh
150ml whipping cream

For crepe:
1. Mix all ingredients for the crepe together until get a smooth runny batter. Strain and rest the batter for 1 hour.

2. Heat up a non-stick flat based pan on medium heat.
3. Grease it with some butter or oil.
4. Pour in a scoop of batter and cooked until the crepe is firm, flip to another side and cook for a while.

5. Repeat step 3-4 until finish all the batter.
6. Leave the crepe to cool down on plate.

For filling:
1. Remove seeds from durians.
2. Mash durian fresh with a fork till creamy.
3. Whip whipping cream till stiff. Add in the durian fresh and mix till well combined.

4. Put a piece of crepe on a cake board, add in the filling and flatten with a palette knife. Stack another piece of crepe on top of filling and continue with filling until all the crepes finish stacked. Chill the whole cake in the fridge.

5. Remove from the fridge and rest at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

The crepe I made is quite thick, the filling I used for each layer is too little. I personally think that it is better to make the filling the same thickness as the crepe, so you will have a nice and creamy crepe.

I wrap the remaining filling with remaining crepe to make durian kuih. They are very creamy and delicious too.
