Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe | Lebuh Macallum, Penang

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

Get ready jelly mold and your favorite fruits. When jelly is boiled, pour into jelly mold. Remove jelly fom mold when they are completely cool. Keep in fridge before serve.  

 

USSR Restaurant | Harbour Park , Langkawi

We 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.

Yakitori_3

I would like to share a very simple dish that I cooked yesterday, homemade yakitori. Yakitori (焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. It is made from few bite-sized chicken meats, skewered on a bamboo skewer over charcoal.





 



Japanese like to order yakitori during dinner with a group of colleagues or friends, eat with some other dishes and drink with beer or sake , Japanese alcoholic drink.

Besides chicken, they also used chicken heart, liver, chicken wing, ox tongue, squid and others to make yakitori.

On Friday, I bought a bottle of yakitori sauce from supermarket near my company. At night, I merinate the chicken meats with the yakitori sauce. The next morning, I grilled the chicken meats and ate together with rice. I do not follow the way Japanese cook and just put the chicken on top of alluminium foil and grilled them. It was delicious and very easy to prepare.

I am not sure where to get it in Malaysia. May be we can get it in supermarket such as Jusco or Cold Storage, or shops in town that selling all those Japanese food? Anyone knows where to get it?

Hi Juju, yes, you can substitute the sauce with something else..i grill it with gas cooker, they gas cooker here comes with a partition where you can grill chicken, fish or other food. Just take care of the chicken not to overcook or burn will do, no temperature setting is needed. You can grill it in your oven as well, temperature wise, maybe set it to 150deg? or 180deg? Grill until it is cook will do.
