Koay Teow Bandung ~' Malaysian Monday no. 6' | 14 comments:


This 'Koay Teow Bandung' is my favourite whenever I patronise the Idris Room of the Royal Ipoh Club, so much so that the waiter will automatically jot it down whenever he passes me the menu.  The Royal Ipoh Club is more than 100 years old  and dates back a long time during the British colonial rule, totally restricted to whites, like planters, tin miners and administrators.
However, the age of the Royal Ipoh Club was fixed by its Management Committee in 1972 based on the establishment of one of the oldest British companies, Osborne and Chapel International, in this historical city that tin built.  The management committee could only guess and agree on the year as Osborne and Chapel was established  about that time.
Today, any Malaysian can become a member of this club and it's now a regular meeting place for lawyers as the courthouse is within walking distance from this club.  Check out this  'site'  for more of this Tudor style black and white clubhouse.



Saute the chopped garlic with oil, add in the curry paste, then the seasoned meat, fry till cooked.  Add in the koay teow, sauces and salt, stir-fry.  Toss in the choy sam, make a well in the centre, break in the eggs, mix well and toss in the prawns and bean sprouts.  Stir-fry, test for taste and dish out.
