Seafood Vermicelli

Sometime ago, while dining in a restaurant in Melbourne China town, my friend suggested that we order a La-la dish.  Then I found out that La-la, known in Malaysia is referred to as Pi-pi in Aussie land.  Well, be it La-la or Pi-pi, to me 'Clams' is more appropriate and better understood.
Now, back to this one-dish meal, it's easily prepared and very tasty, especially the soup ..... slurp, slurp to the last drop.  For the health conscious, round it up with a hot cup of Green tea, which may help bring down the cholesterol level after consuming such delicious crustaceans.




 tasty prawns, fish fillet, good old La-la and  some greens.
indulging once in a while, is acceptable .....




mmm ...... isn't it tempting ...... try me




a must have .....
 some freshly chopped chilli padi/birds' eye chillies
and garlic to go with it

Soy Sauce Chicken ~ 豉油鸡

  This is a very common dish but delicious and appetising.  The method of cooking this dish is less labour intensive and does not incur frying.  I marinated the whole legs of chicken overnight which made them more tasty and the sauce is the essence of this dish.  You can also throw in some hard boiled eggs and with a veggie dish on the side, you can serve this with plain white rice or plain congee.
