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.

Mung Bean Cake ~ 绿豆糕

These Mung Bean Cakes are made with split mung beans and they can pass off as mooncakes as they are shaped using the plunger moulds for mooncakes.  I find these mung bean cakes refreshing and not so heavy as mooncakes and they are a perfect match with a cup of hot Chinese tea.
