Asian Food Fest: West Asia has come to an end! Despite the West Asian cuisine is a completely strange new cuisine to many of us, I applaud all the brave bloggers who attempted the dishes. I thank all the bloggers who have taken part in this event, with a total submission of 58 entries. Same like you, I have also learnt various new dishes from all of you here, many of those which I’ve bookmarked to try in future. I hope you have enjoyed discovering new exotic ingredients, flavours and dishes, as well as having fun cooking West Asian food. Hope that this will inspire you when you want to cook West Asian Food in the future.

Asian Food Fest brings us to West Asia this December with Just As Delish as the host. Western Asia, or Southwest Asia, are terms that describe the westernmost portion of Asia. The term West Asia given by the United Nations are partly because of the Middle East is geographical position in relation to Western Europe rather than its location within Asia.

Malaysian Food Fest (MFF) Kuala Lumpur Selangor ends today. The time just flies in July. Throughout the MFF events (started almost a year ago), I’ve learnt many new dishes from all the states in Malaysia. It is very common that there is similiarity of the dishes between the states, either influenced, begged or borrowed, and morphed over time. This is same with KL Selangor. MFF is all about celebrating the food culture of each state.
The food culture in KL Selangor is so diverse that it’s a bit challenging because the food there has evolved from the amalgamation of influences from all over Malaysia due to the high migration. I am glad so many of you accepted the challenge and joined in the fun with a total of 46 submissions! Bravo and a BIG BIG thank you to everyone who have participated. There’s so many Lohanguo drinks enough to give a good brain freeze and drool at all yummy noodle dishes. Continue Reading →
Like most popular dishes, Beggar’s Chicken is a dish with an interesting story of origin. A starving, homeless beggar in rural China stole a chicken from a yard and was about to cook it when the emperor’s guards passed by. In his state of panic, he tried to hide the chicken by covering it with mud and threw it into the fire. Hours later when the coast is clear, he ended up with a chicken that was said to be the most tender and flavoursome he’s ever eaten. Continue Reading →
I’m no fan of fish head, except the silky smooth cheeks. Mama would “devour” the whole fish (the head, fins, tail) until the fish is irrecognisable. Many times she have failed to convince me to try the fish head. No way I will touch it, not even scrumptious curry fish head. Yes I know some of you reading this will go “Eww, how can you eat the fish head”. Mama will tell you it’s very delicious, the cooked fish meat between the bones is super tasty and firm, break the bones with your fingers, and suck out the meat. There’s no way avoiding getting your fingers dirty to truly enjoy fish head. Continue Reading →
Just the mere mention of the word satay is enough to get anyone drooling. The grilled marinated skewered meat is the epitome of Malaysian Street Food. We can argue about how fantastic our favourite ‘warung sate‘ (satay stall vendor) might be, however the appeal of Satay Kajang has never waned. Who is to argue when Kajang is informally known as the “Satay Town”. Continue Reading →
