The kids are hungry and they don’t want the usual rice and lauks. At the same time you don’t want to indulge them too much with convenience or fast food. What to do? Well, this recipe, of course. Meatballs and fries are popular with kids, and this recipe will bring some of that ‘fast food’ feel in your own home. It’s delicious, not to mention far better than ready-made-instant-stuff.

Food to Comfort a Sad Heart

by Honey, on Tue, March 25, 2014 - 10:26:14 AM, 0 comment
Makan Musings
It has been an emotional month for us Malaysians. One thing after another has knocked us, leaving us breathless that life is full of uncertainties. After the announcement last night on MH370 many are left bereft and perhaps like me unable to really process a tragedy that is close to home but at the same time feels surreal.

Food has always been a comfort in many ways, something that we still have in common once the mud slinging and politicking have died down. So grab your loved ones and enjoy something that is heart and tummy warming.

Breakfast Eggs

Kopitiam

Many of us go back to our childhood to comfort that reminds us of a more innocent time. Eggs give a shot of protein and antioxidants that wakes you up (hence it being common for breakfast). Be extra special to your household. There is nothing more comforting then some eggs (soft-boiled to many with white pepper and kicap) and toast cut into soldierly strips to dip into yolky goodness. Awake early on a workday? Go to your favourite kopitiam with a colleague and enjoy kaya toast and a strong cup of buttery coffee together.

Do you know a junkie? As in, a real junkie? Wipe those creases of your forehead, we're talking about burger junkies! We got to know about three burger junkies who wanted to share their love for all things burger over at Kota Damansara*. And these are not your run of the mill burgers, either. These are burgers made with care and attention, totally the way a burger lover would. And best of all, everything over at this place is made fresh, from scratch.

Quick Chayote Salad

Quickie Recipe
The content department came back to the office from the TTDI market one day bearing this rather strange looking fruit. They were told that the fruit is pretty much prepared like a vegetable and made into stir-fries and salads. The funny thing was they had no idea how to prepare it! Luckily, I've seen this strange fruit before. It was a chayote, a member of the squash and gourd family. It looks like a guava.

Fresh, it has a crispy, watery texture and takes on flavours very well. So I made a simple chayote salad that day. I made a simple dressing, using a combination of black vinegar, minced garlic, black & white sesame seeds, salt, a bit of sugar and some hot oil. Then I shredded the chayote and tossed it with the dressing.



Needless to say, my colleagues enjoyed it! This just goes to show there are plenty of fun, fresh ingredients from our local markets. So pack some bags and go to the pasar!  Continue reading »

Hazard another 14km from teluk kemang into a place called Ikan Bakar Cahaya Kemang in Pasir Panjang, you will be rewarded with a scenic view and great ikan bakar place run by Kak Suzana. Her stall is not in the Medan Ikan Bakar Pasir Panjang but rather just before the medan, just at the fish markets of Kampung Telok, and yes, besides the fishing boats next to the river. Can you already imagine this scene?
