Another good food film (commercial). This time its from Bernas and its titled Ka Fan or 'more rice' (obviously!). So it looks like its 'Tau Fu Fah' versus Ka Fan this year. This is the longer version so it is a bit draggy. I assume that the TV version is much shorter. Enjoy!
This is a great advertisement by Petronas for this coming Chinese New Year. It's simply titled Tau Fu Fah and tells the story of a humble Tau Foo Fah seller. The 'Fu' sign means luck and good fortune in Chinese and there is a reason why the film is titled Tau Fu Fah instead of Tau Foo Fah.
To all our Chinese fans out there "Look back on a great life. Look forward to an even greater one". Happy Chinese New Year and enjoy Petronas' new short film. I am glad they did a 'food film' version this year, and a good one at that. Continue reading »
Somewhere in Jalan Telawi there is a chocoholic’s paradise called Dip n Dip, a franchise that started in Damascus in 2009 before expanding to Amman and Kuwait City, and now Kuala Lumpur. Their specialty, chocolates! To those who require savoury food, you will be out of luck here because they only serve chocolates ( and coffee and tea ). I kid you not!
The Brownies Crepe - a soft thin square pancake topped with a beautiful yummy pattern of milk, white and dark chocolate.
Their Brownies Crepe is so pretty, it's like an art display, consisting of a soft thin square pancake topped with a lovely pattern of milk, dark and white chocolate. Stunning! And it tasted...so good.
Another option is the Waffle Stick, a waffle roll topped with liberal amounts of the melted trio of dark, white and milk chocolate. It has its own legion of fans although the Brownies Crepe is still my no. 1 choice.
The Waffle Stick - a waffle roll drenched with the sticky sweet trio of chocolates.
Since I’m a sweet tooth devil and I did get a little bit greedy, I also ordered brownies. Warm chocolate brownies topped with amazing Belgian chocolate sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side. Absolute knockout! I was amazed with the amount of desserts my tummy consumed that… Continue reading »

Ayam Masak Hitam or more commonly known with the un-PC moniker of Ayam Negro is a dish usually served at Nasi Kandar outlets across Penang. Similar to Ayam Masak Kicap, it has a thick gravy sweetened with raisins. More »
The Ayam Special is Abang’s signature dish, cracking and splashing the egg onto the grill as he uses the patty to spread the egg, allowing the white pepper and soy sauce to seep into the egg as well, enhancing its flavour two fold. Slightly crispy around the edges but totally juicy on the inside, even my friend who is not a foodie (boo!) and a small eater (double boo!), exclaimed “WOW” the first time she sunk her teeth into this sloppy creation. The Daging Double is a heavyweight contender, extra tender and juicy, perfect for a hungry tummy in the middle of the night.
But the real beauty came just a few months ago to Abang’s burger place when he unleashed his mammoth creation. Dubbed the Monster Burger X, it had all my favourite words (Monster and X) and everything I could wish for in a burger. Everyone can easily recognize the Monster Burger, simply because it is what it is…a monster of a burger. Nearly twice in width and length of a normal Ramly burger patty, the Monster Burger combines the taste of a gourmet burger, delicate and refined, with the smokey tones of an excellent street grilled burger. The patty has an altogether different taste which you will have to try for yourself.
Monster Burger has twice as much 'sayur', twice as much as sauce and definitely twice as much bite, because it can easily replace a meal. You can have the Monster done in any way you want as well, be it special, cheese or special cheese. The patty is so big that for the 'Special' version, Abang actually needs to use 2 eggs. The patty has a genuine beef taste and way juicier compared to the-run-off-the-mill Ramly burger. If you are a monster, you can opt for a double Monster, which is only RM13, still affordable compared to other burger stalls.
Many of my friends have tried Abang’s new creation the Monster Burger, and all of them have the same to say, it is better than most burgers they have tasted. One even compared it against a (currently) very popular burger bakar and said it came nowhere close to the Monster, both in taste and price-wise. More »
