Two Hour Roast Turkey 101

Can you really roast a turkey under 2 hours and still get it to be perfectly juicy, moist, succulent and tender? If you've just spent RM140 bucks for a bird and it's sitting in the freezer your answer should be .... Yes, you can my friends! After the BBQ Turkey Skunkworks yielded a juicy turkey, we got comments from our readers doing "Damn! That turkey looks good but I don't have a BBQ set". Well, never fear, remember the 6 sen turkey I got earlier? Looks like I have a spare turkey to play with. So I'm gonna share with you a simple weekend roasting project. And mind you.. this is the first time I'm doing this, normally Aida (our Chef-In-Residence) roasts turkeys for us. So for the newbies about there, I'm with you! This is a simple no stuffing, no frills turkey recipe. The idea is to get you to roast a perfectly juicy, moist, tender, delicious and succulent turkey. Once your done with the basics, you can go crazy with stuffings and all.


Firstly, the turkey needs to be completely thawed. This means that you need to keep it in the fridge for at least 24 hours and let it out at room temperature…  Continue reading »

The Cheapest Turkey in the World!

OK so.. here's a funny story. Honey REALLY wanted to try barbequing a turkey after hearing someone telling her how juicy and succulent it can be. She actually spent a whole week researching on this singular topic alone in the office. So, one fine day late November, we all went to Cold Storage in Bangsar to buy some turkeys. There were loads of them sitting quietly in the freezers. She picked one up ... "Hmmm.... this one is RM150 bucks" she says. "That one is is bigger but I don't like the shape" she says again. And then she said "Oh... dude.. look... that one is 6 cents only".


"What?!" I yelped. "Lemme see.... uh huh... you right, man. I think they made a mistake or something. Lets just put this back then". And that was that. Huns picked up two turkeys, grabbed a couple of other turkey related stuff and headed for the checkout counter. Pretty uneventful, right? WRONG! and then I saw this sticker at the side panel of the checkout counters.


Huhoo....can that mean that I get a RM126.00 bird for a mere 6 cents only? Lets try then.... Went back to the freezer. There's my 6…  Continue reading »

Where To Eat

Sin Kee

"Fat and juicy prawns almost toppling out of the bowl"

When my dad first told me about a famous Chinese shop that serves excellent steamed fish in my new neighbourhood I doubted him a little…why would a well-known Chinese restaurant be in Brickfields of all places?!? That’s like having a great Indian shop in Chinatown. Soon enough I started hearing it from everyone…friends, colleagues, even random individuals…and this is when I knew I had to try it out!

The moment I stepped in I could tell that this was the spot to be. The place was packed with many individuals sharing a table just to get a bite to eat. The minute we managed to snag a table I turned to the Auntie and asked her to bring us a few of the specialties. This included a whole steamed catfish with pounded ginger, a large bowl of sambal prawns, a thick egg fu yong, sweet and sour pork and the special bean curd. We also added on an order of garlic kailan and kangkung belacan…after all no meal is complete without veggies!

A steaming hot serving of sambal prawns started off the show and at RM15 they were a steal. Portions here are surprisingly generous with fat juicy prawns slathered in a thick sambal paste threatening to topple out of the bowl. These were very tasty without being too spicy and the sauce makes a delicious gravy on plain rice.

Next up was the egg fu yong a type of omelette studded with Chinese sausage and onions. I don’t generally like eggs unless they’re scrambled and served for breakfast but I must say I enjoyed this dish. The egg was light and fluffy and the sausage added a pleasant unexpected flavour which pulled it all together. The special bean curd is served in a thick sauce with snap peas, carrots and cabbage. The tofu is silky smooth but lacks a bit in taste so I ended up using some soy sauce and chopped fresh garlic to add to it. The snap peas however, had a great crunch and sweetness that went well with the tofu.
