Sambal Tumis Sotong Kering

by The Charlie, on Thu, December 16, 2010
Malay

“Musty” and “delicious” shouldn’t go in the same sentence, but it does here, tasting somewhere between the flavours of cuttlefish and raw ikan bilis. The spiciness of the chilli boh really lifts yet grounds the dish.

Korean Pickled Squid

Asian

This spicy Korean pickled squid (ojinguh jut) packs a lot of flavour, so eat it sparingly as a side dish to compliment your meal. Make sure you rinse it well after it sits in the salt if not you’ll end up with a rubbery salty strip of squid.

Baked Stuffed Squid

Western

This dish has a sort of Mediterranean feel to it and the delicate flavours are a treat. While we didn’t cook it this way, you can use white wine in place of the chicken stock for a more complex taste.

Thai Squid Salad

Asian

This is a refreshing and zesty way to enjoy a bowl of squid. Each bite allows for a different flavour to shine through; the tanginess of the lime, the sweetness of the sugar, the heat from the chilli sauce, and the refreshing kick of fresh herbs.

Mr. Chiam’s Goreng Pisang

by Alexa P., on Wed, December 15, 2010

"Perfectly crisp and sweet"

Fried snacks usually make the best teatime treats. They have just enough oomph and crunch to keep you satisfied right through to dinnertime. A place I love to frequent is Mr.Chiam’s Goreng Pisang in Brickfields. This little stall fries up a bunch of goodies that are worth every penny. At any given time you’ll find a crowd of people waiting for their treats to be freshly fried. The wait may take a while but trust me, you’ll want to wait.

Mr. Chiam and his son are the duo that run this stall daily. They man the stall and fry up the goodies. All the prep work is done in another room on the first floor in the building next to the stall. There is even an intercom system that is linked up making it easier for them to call up for more ingredients. When they call up for more, a little bucket attached to a string drops down with more prepared items. It all reminds me a bit of Rapunzel, except for here it might go something like this “Mrs. Chiam we need more kuih bakul, let down your bucket!” It is an efficient system and it sure gets the job done.   More »

Comida

"Fresh and delicious comfort food!"

“Comida” in Spanish means food and was started by former FlyFM DJ Basil Joseph and his partner Sindi together with friend and chef Sufiz Allatif. Comida is the brainchild of Basil, a food enthusiast who dreamed of owning a successful chain of restaurants. Deciding that the entertainment world had offered him possibly all it could, he began calculating and planning the birth of this homely eatery. Of course, behind every successful man is a woman. Sindi, relaxed and unwavering, proved to be the backbone of his vision, and brought all knowledge of experience and organization into the mix.

The dream transformed into reality and the need for a Master Chef was at hand. Enter Sufiz, the cool, street styled cook with ambitions of becoming a celebrity chef ala Marco Pierre and Jamie Oliver. He enthusiastically accepted the offer without a second thought and immediately the wheels of culinary excellence began turning.

“Great restaurants may start out following a trend, but Comida offers food at its best, using familiar recipes that aren't too pretentious,” says Basil. The walls are toned with Comida’s colours, which unexpectedly becomes the perfect backdrop to highlight local art by Eddie Lim.   More »
