'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.

Chocolate and vanilla are the best of friends and they complement extremely well with each other. This is a very easy recipe and these cuppies can be done in a pretty short time.  They are soft, moist and  with the two-tone butter frosting, they are seriously yummy!

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
