'Dong Zhi' reunion dinner

We had a sumptuous reunion dinner at Sun Lee How Fook on 'Dong Zhi'.  It was a warm and joyful reunion as this was the first time that all my 3 children were back together  for a short holiday.  I couldn't post this earlier as we had to go down to Kuala Lumpur very early next morning to join a tour to Hanoi.








suckling pig ......thin and crispy skin ..........ate this first with some plum sauce or on its own




like the soft steamed mantou that accompanied the succulent pig, yummy with plum sauce



after eating the skin, the waitress skilfully cut up the piglet with a pair of scissors



this is steamed 'Lam Kor Yu' also known as 'Soon Hock' ..... it's quite an expensive fish, and we only had half of it as it was quite big.... very chewy



each of us had some rice vermicelli to go with the fish sauce .....  delicious



this is my eldest girl's favourite dish, deep fried yam balls with scallop filling



we noticed that it was differently served this time ..... used to be served on a base of fried vermicelli



dried scallop wrapped in deep fried yam  ....... yummy




had some noodles, .......'three sliced meat noodles', which happens to be my son's favourite




dessert ........ water chestnut egg soup, my favourite




The whole dinner came to about RM350 and all of us were satisfied, especially my three musketeers!  It's togetherness that counts, they said!

    This restaurant is famous for its suckling pig. The whole piglet costs Rm110.

    The yam puffs have to be preordered and you must specify that you want dry scallops instead of fresh ones. Not so tasty with fresh scallops.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
