Top 5 things to buy at Ipoh Ramadhan Markets

by Honey Ahmad, on Thu, July 17, 2014
I love ‘balik kampung’ especially a few weeks before Raya because I can hit Ipoh's ramadhan markets for local goodies. Here are my Top 5 I especially look forward to finding and bringing home for Iftar with my family.

1. Laksa Kuala Kangsar

This is very similar to Laksa Utara, a thin fishy broth flavoured…   More »

New Hang-outs
A brand new burger joint just opened in Taman Tun. Harley’s brings California-style burgers to a city that’s already pretty mad about burgers. “It’s modelled after In and Out,” says Gan the owner of this brand. With operational outlets in Myanmar, the Harley’s in Taman Tun is the first in Malaysia.

Harley's double beef cheeseburger

Here’s what you can expect from Harley’s. The patties are made from 100% Australian chilled beef (so it’s not frozen), made fresh everyday and grilled on order. Patties are thin but flavourful. The reason for this is so that it cooks faster (your wait time is minimal) and keeps prices affordable. A beef burger starts at RM6.90 and we’re talking quality beef here. “It’s fast food but not junk food,” he adds.

The burger I tried on their 2nd night, buns soft and sauce complements the flat patty

Basic menu at Harley's

I like that concept. Burgers come with a choice of 2 sauces, a classic mustard-ketchup sauce and a Harley’s special mayo sauce, that harkens a little of a 1,000 island dressing. Together, with soft buns, fresh veggies…  Continue reading »

Top 5 @ PaRam Kelana Jaya 2014

by Edwan S., on Fri, July 11, 2014 - 12:58:37 PM, 0 comment
Kelana Jaya's PaRam is always one of the best, even last year. It is no different in 2014 as we found out last week. So this is 2014's Top 5 at PaRam Kelana Jaya, as selected by us.

Awie Satar

Yes, we featured him last year but Awie's Satar always deserves a second (third, fourth...) mention. He's back as usual at PaRam Kelana Jaya. This year he pulled a fast one on us as he told us his 'secret recipe'... which turned out to NOT be his recipe. Either way, it's always a pleasure to see him and enjoy his delicious, spicy and creamy satar made with fresh tenggiri.

Rendang Minang Stall

This stall serves authentic, thickly sauced rendang minang cooked in big woks. Choose either regular beef or limpa (spleen). Either way it's a spicy and delectable treat. They also sell sup 'gearbox'. Fatty, creamy bone marrow is begging to be sucked out. Meat lovers will love this stall.

Sengkuang Calit

How about a break from heavy…  Continue reading »

Kiddies Veggie-Pasta

by Honey, on Thu, July 10, 2014

We found adorable animal shaped pasta at a hypermarket and thought to make this yummy and kid-friendly recipe. As a bonus, it’s pretty healthy too. And sure, use some ‘adult’ pasta if you want but come on… animal shaped pasta!

Sambal Ketuk

Quickie Recipe
What's your favourite condiment to eat with rice, or even noodles? In Malaysia, the answer will undoubtedly be something along the lines of a sambal: sambal belachan, sambal kicap, sambal goreng. Budu and cincalok will make a cameo appearance here and there, but more often than not it is sambal that is a must have condiment when makan nasi.

Now let's add another sambal to this delicious repertoire with this Sambal Ketuk. It is probably one of the simplest sambals but boy does it pack a wallop of flavour and spice.

Green, mean and very tasty

Take about a handful of ikan bilis and wash them. Fry the ikan bilis until golden brown and crispy and chuck them into a mortar (lesung). Next, roughly cut about 15 - 20 cili padi and fry that for 5 minutes in the same oil you used for the ikan bilis. Drain off the excess oil and put the chillies together in the mortar. Now pound the ikan bilis and chillies to a rough powder. Season with salt and sugar to taste.

Mix this into your rice, congee and noodles, or however way you see fit. It'll probably taste great however way you use it. Except dessert. Maybe.  Continue reading »

Top 5 @ PaRam Kota Damansara, Section 7, 2014

Quickie Review
About a week or so of Ramadhan has passed and we've been checking out PaRams (Pasar Ramadhans) in and around KL. This year we're trying to check out the less well known ones (you know, in comparison to the big ones like Bangsar or Shah Alam).

Our colleague, Meen, pointed us out to Section 7 of Kota Damansara. A little PaRam has been there for awhile, right behind a Shell station. So we checked it out and here is our Top 5!

Street Burrito Malaysia

This fledgling stall is testing out their burritos at the PaRam in hopes of setting up a shop (in TTDI they said). Their burrito features tasty, savoury and perfectly cooked rice inside a warm and soft tortilla. The chicken is griddled and remained juicy even when bought earlier. A touch of (very) tangy salsa rounds it off.

'World Cup' Chicken Wings

Riding on the World Cup 2014 wave is this cheeky BBQ chicken stall. Their items are named after football stars like Neymar, Ronaldo and Messi. Yeah we know. But the smoke coming out of the stall touches their chicken wings, drumsticks and even gizzards and 'tongkeng' (Bishops Nose.. or chicken butts!) and gives everything this smokey-sweet and…  Continue reading »

Jam Filled Crêpes

by Honey Ahmad, on Mon, July 07, 2014

Crêpes are thin pancakes made from a liquid batter. They are very versatile because you can fill them with anything you like and have them as a starter or as a light meal. Of course, we like them sweet. This one is filled with strawberry jam and drizzled with syrup, an excellent dessert to have after dinner.
