BIG Lobster at Red Lobster | Odaiba, Japan

Last few weekend, I had a trip to Odaiba with my colleagues. That was the fourth time I visited to Odaiba, a man made island in Tokyo. It is one of the popular tourist spots in Japan, famous with shopping and entertainment district. Rainbow Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Aqua City and the Palette Town Ferris Wheel are few famous spots in Odaiba. Of course that are not the all in Odaiba. While we walk around Aqua City, we found a restaurant that is serving lobster. Looking at the display set, it was so tempting. With a reasonable price of the set, we decided to give it a try.

 

Pillsbury Moist Supreme Cake Mix

I bought this Moist Supreme Cake Mix and keep for few weeks before my baking mood is back. Recently, I am too lazy to do baking, house keeping, reading, everything...even cutting cake into slices also lazy. Hence I decided to bake them in paper cups.

 

Yam Cake 芋头糕 (Or Kuih) Recipe

I miss my kitchen, I miss my oven, I miss my flour, miss my butter, my mixing bowl, and...and...and... every single little thing in my little kicthen...... I have no time to bake, no time to cook, no time for food hunting for the past few months. The only thing I can do is to surf and read on people's blog. Sometimes, blogging life is quite lonely if you are walking alone. Interaction with readers or other bloggers are the best way to keep us motivated.

 

Homecook Big and Fresh Scallop | Japan

The picture shows the scallop I bought last week. I found it in the super market near my company (in Japan). It was a fresh scallop, 120yen each, but I get it for the price of 60yen (about RM2.20) after 50% of discount. After wash, I cooked it together with the shell directly above the gas, the shell acts as my cooking pan and the scallop was my main dish Wink . While it was about 80% cooked, I added soy sauce to the scallop and ate with rice after cooked.

Being a Malaysian, I am a bit(yes, a bit only) shy Embarassed 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.

Firstly, cook minced pork until it is cooked. (The minced pork is merinate with 绍兴花彫酒 and soy sauce). Remove from pan. You may replace the minced pork with pork slice or cha xiu (叉烧).

Fried shallots

To prepare Kampua sauce, add soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, sugar and spring onion in fried shallots bowl. (add according to your own taste)

Kampua_6

Sweet soy sauce and light soya sauce

Kampua_7

Mee kampua sauce

Cook the mee in hot boil water, when it is soft, remove mee from hot water and mix into the sauce. Add minced pork and ready to be served!

"Imported" kampua mee from Sibu

Kampua_4

It is differ with Wan Tan Mee, the mee is originally "import" from Sibu and it tasted superb with the sauce, the texture of the mee is harder and "Q" compare with Wan Tan Mee. The fried shallots and spring onions really give a big contribution to the fragrance of Kampua.

Since the "imported" mee is not easily found in penang, for penangist like me, I will replace the Mee with Indo Mee and follow the sauce from this recipe.

The Kampua mee is cook by my Sarawak friend where he learnt the recipe from his lovely Sibu's shifu. I would say that the shifu did a great job and successfully transfer her cooking skill to my friend. I would sincerely thanks both of them for sharing with us their local cuisine. So, what is the next Sarawak food recipe that you are going to share with us? Tongue out 期待ing.........Cool
