'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.

Peach Resin Snow Fungus Dessert ~ 桃胶雪耳糖水

The scientific name for Peach resin is Prunus Persica which is resin secreted from the Peach tree and form like crystals which are stuck to the tree.  Originated from China, the composition of peach resin is collagen, amino acids.  The rich collagen helps to improve the complexion, nourishes and helps to prevent dryness of the skin.  It also helps to improve bowel movement.  In short, this is an inexpensive substitute to the highly expensive birds nest.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
