Lunch at 1919 Restaurant


I recently had lunch with some friends at 1919 Restaurant, in Bandar Baru Medan.  This restaurant is by the side of Tesco and behind Jaya Jusco.  Since there were seven of us, so each of us ordered a dish and when it came to my turn, I ordered my favourite, Yam Kerabu or 'Fatt putt kerabu'.




This is 'Yam Kerabu', a mango salad with some toasted peanuts, and a bit of fried cuttlefish in the middle of the yam ring..... sweet and tangy, a  real  appetiser!  You can also opt for the plain kerabu minus the yam ring.


This is 'Antique Taufu' ..... fried taufu made to shape like a dome and in it were mushroom cubes, prawns and some vegetables.  The taufu was soft and smooth...... an instant hit!



Pineapple fried rice, everyone's favourite ..... this was certainly not enough for 7 of us, we shared this out and also had some white rice to go with the other dishes.


And this is  'Kunyit Chicken' aka Tumeric chicken served on  a sizzling hot plate.  The chicken pieces were very crispy and the sauce, heavenly.  A good combo with white rice.



Oh, this colourful dish is 'Butter fish fillet' .... look at the buttered egg floss, heaped on the fish fillet.  The fish fillet was  crispy, and I simply love biting into the egg floss!


Stir-fried 'Kai lan' with chopped garlic and some carrot strips for colour ..... the veggie was crunchy, to everyone's delight.


Foo Yoong omelette....... also everybody's favourite.


A scrumptious meal, not too heavy for lunch but most important is that we enjoyed each other's company and had the opportunity to catch up on old times.
The  total bill, plus rice and tea came up to Rm136.85 which we found to be quite reasonable.

    Hey, I'm no chef lah! No idea how to go about the tofu and yam ring.
    Maybe Kristy may be able to make the yam ring. Think it's something like the 'woo kok' pastry.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
