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.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all! Recipe for Eel Soup Ingredients 350 gm eel 2 carrots, cut into cubes 2 tomatoes,cut into wedges 3 onions, cut into wedges 2.5 lt of water 20  white peppercorns, crushed Seasalt to taste Method Clean up the fish, set aside. Put the water into a pot, bring to a boil and add in the carrots, tomatoes, onions and peppercorns. Simmer for a while and add in the eel. Cover, lower the heat to medium low and let the soup simmer for about 1.1/2 hours. Add salt to taste. Ladle and serve immediately.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge. Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy   ~    梅菜焖五花肉 Ingredients  400 gm pork belly cut into bite size 100 gm  preserved sweet mui choy 3 cloves of garlic 2 slices ginger Seasoning for the pork belly 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce 1/4 Tbsp sugar 1/4 Tbsp sesame oil 1/4 Tbsp oyster sauce 1/2 tsp pepper 1/8 tsp light soya sauce Method Season the pork belly for about an hour or more.  Set aside. Soak the mui choy for 45 mins., rinse and squeeze dry.  Cut into slices Heat some oil in the wok, fry the mui choy.  Add in the ginger slices.  Stir-fry. Add in the pork  belly, fry for a while and
