Lunch at Burwood


We had lunch at the ' All people Chinese restaurant ' at Burwood, a suburb not far from the city. It was indeed a very sumptuous meal and I must say  that the lobsters we had were value for money.  We discovered later that they cost  very much less than what was being offered at the restaurants in the city's Chinatown.


Ginger and spring onions lobster noodles.





We enjoyed the lobster noodles so much that we indulged ourselves and ordered another one.
A dry version ..... Salt and pepper lobster, at their recommendation.





Roast duck which had a crunchy skin, soft and tender meat... very tasty!


Pea sprouts fried with garlic.


Pei Pa bean curd served with Broccoli.

We left the restaurant with a full belly wholly satisfied!

Today, being the last day of 2010, I take the opportunity to wish


All my readers and friends, far and near,
A very Happy, Peaceful, Harmonious and Stress-free
New Year!

  1. Oh you are in Melbourne. We must catch up if you have time before going back to Melbourne. Great Chinese meals are better in the suburbs these days, Chinatown has definitely lost it's shine.

    Yes, all of us enjoyed the lobsters. We had another lobster meal, not as good and more pricey.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it! Wool Roll Bread ~  毛线球面包 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments) Ingredients 300 gm high protein flour or bread flour 30 gm sugar 1 tsp seasalt 1 egg  (55 gm or 65 gm) 70 or 80 ml milk 25 gm melted butter Egg wash (1 whole egg + 1.1/2 tsp water to dilute) Meat floss or whatever you wish to use as filling 80 ml warm mil

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle. Marble Butter Cake ~   大理石牛油蛋糕      Ingredients (A) 230 gm butter 150 gm vanilla/caster sugar 200 gm self-raising flour 4 egg yolks   (I used 68 gm eggs with shell) 60 ml milk 1 tsp vanilla essence 8 gm chocolate powder a pinch of salt (B) 4 egg whites 30 gm vanilla/caster sugar Method 1.     Line the base of an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper, grease and dust the sides of the pan with flour.  Set aside. 2.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
