Koay Teow Bandung ~' Malaysian Monday no. 6'


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.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

To Fu( Beancurd) Bridge ~ 跨桥豆腐

When I was recommended to try this dish in a restaurant, I was both hesitant and at the same time intrigued by its name.  I've heard of the song 'Bridge over troubled water' but Tofu crossing the bridge?  So to satisfy everyone's curiosity, we agreed to give it a try.  It's a nutritious dish with a good source of protein in the Tofu pork and egg all in one.  It was just tasty and delicious to go with a bowl of steaming hot white rice!
