Whenever its Hari Raya, the very special and fragrant lemang is almost around every corner of the housing estates. I read in the papers which highlighted a stall in Balik Pulau in Penang and price had increased from RM10 to 12 this year.

I bought some on Raya eve in SS15 Subang Jaya and was shocked that the price was RM15 for a short and RM18 for a longer stick of lemang. No doubt the lemang is good, santan flavour is rich and good for the next few days, it is rather expensive though.

Anyhow, lemang is still a favourite during Raya and I just hope opportunist don’t blow the price up so that we can continue enjoying this delicacy.

I think I am a Hee Kiaw Mee Addict!

This 1 night trip to Melaka, I had like 3 bowls of hee kiaw mee! I am starting to think that I am becoming a Hee Kiaw Mee addict. Miharu and family got the puzzled look on their face, why this fatty like hee kiaw mee so much, to them, its just very ordinary food, hehe…

Firstly, for those not familar, hee kiaw mee is actually noodles, can be ordered soup or dry with fish cake, fish balls and char siew. Most of the time, there’s also additional toppings like meatballs, stuffed tofu, etc. you can add on. The noodles varies from stalls, it can be the normal yellow noodles, meehoon, koay teow and something wantan mee type. The fish cake is different, not the usual fried type but just steamed fish cake that comes in white and orange colour. Fish ball and char siew are standard. Oh… there’s also taugeh being served together.

I preferred the soup based one but only at this one stall that operates at night at Jalan Tun Sri Lanang. The soup is slightly salted but very tasted and I like the fact there are so many types of topping you can add, hehe… greedy me as usual 😛

The dry one is quite nice too, my favourite is with koay teow and yellow noodles and oohhh… today I discovered that you have to ask for chili to be added to the dry one if you want so, it feels like something is missing with the chili sauce in the dry noodles :).

Well, this time I had my first bowl during dinner at Newton food court but sorry to say this but it was really not up to my expectation. I would actually rate it as just normal ching tong soup noodles. So, Miharu then convinced everyone that I should go for another bowl and we end up da bao-ing at Jalan Tun Sri Lanang… hehe… well, no regrets and I love it… see the photo, how I walloped clean clean

Then today, not sure what to eat, I end up eating hee kiaw mee again for lunch at Bukit Beruang… haha… so in conclusion, I think internally, I am slowly becoming a hee kiaw mee addict ;).

Eat first, think later… hmm.. maybe the next addiction will be char siew fan… thinking about it.. time to sleep, sweet dreams 😀

I got this pack of fantastic chicken floss tou sar kok from Miharu and I thought, this is great stuff! Everyone I share it with love it! The brand JY is actually Jing Yuan Biscuits and Bakery located at Jalan Ong Kim Wee in Melaka.

The biscuits is cripsy and since are soft tou sar mixed with chicken floss. It may sound weird at first but one bite and you can’t stop! The combination is great! Next trip  to Melaka, I gonna buy tonnes of these back!
