Apom | Wai Sek Kai 喂食街| Chai Leng Park, Perai

If you like to eat something sweet after dinner, this Ah Pom that located at Lebuh Kurau 5 (Wai Sek Kai喂食街), Chai Leng Park is a good choice for them. The stall that selling Ah Pom is owned by a Chinese auntie; she operated this business for more than 20 years. For those who stay surrounding Chai Leng Park should be know about this Ah Pom. Previously, she was selling the Ah Pom at Chai Leng Park market during morning and at Wai Sek Kai (Wai Sek Kai喂食街) at night. Since I was kid (5~6years old), I like it very much already. May be you will ask me "What's so special?", because you can find Ah Pom/Apom/Apong anyway. I can tell you here, the taste is totally different compared to other Indian style Ah Pom/Apom/Apong.

 

Mini Pandan Bun Recipe

All the while, I enjoy blog walking at baking blogs. Recently, I gathered many recipes from baking bloggers, some are breads, some are cakes. I found a special recipes at many baking bloggers' blog, it is call "微波面包", if you translate directly, it means "microwave bun". I believed the name had successfully misleading many people and give impression that it is bake with microwave, but in fact, it is not. It uses conventional method which you need to bake in oven. The speciality of this recipe is that it gives a very soft texture to the bun. I first try with pandan bun recipe, it looks simple but in fact quite time consuming. Rolling each mini bun to swiss roll pattern spent quite long time. Although it is time consuming, but I really enjoy the making process.

 

五月五黑糖番薯包食谱 (Black Sugar Sweet Potato Pao Recipe)

五月五事故。。。 五月五,换政府,五月六,新政府!Ini kalilah Ubah! 这一届大选实在是轰动全国,甚至轰动至国外。经过半世纪多原任政府的统治下,许多人民已意识到有必要改朝换代,告别腐败,让新政府统治国家。这也意味着新希望,希望改变原有的不公平对待,告别贪污的时代。 五月五,我也一样,一早醒来,期待着去投票。由于投票站就在对面,遥望过去,人潮汹涌。赶紧梳洗后,冲着去排队。第一次投票的我,真的有点紧张,排啊排啊,终于轮到我了,投下神圣的两票后,乖乖的离开投票中心。离开前,观察四周,没有外劳,没有暴乱,安心啦。。。

SushiKitchen_2Being creative and innovative are the key to success in this world. If you can design or think of something new and special, and do something different compare with others, you can be very outstanding.

Last week, We visited a vegan sushi restaurant in Sg Ara.

 We make a reservation before dinner to avoid dissapointment as that day was Lunar 9th of September. We arrived there at 6.30pm, wait for few 10 secs in front of main door after pressed the door bell. After the door is open, we entered the restaurant with excitement, and start captured photo here and there. While we arrived at their counter, we stand at there for another few minutes, waiting for people to serve us.

After order foods, we started to look at restaurant deco. The restaurant environment is very comfortable and their deco attracted our attention. They used old furnitures, toys, clocks, coca-cola bottles and others for decoration.

For the food, we ordered:
G-ken Floss Fried Rice. For the first bite, I wondered why the chicken floss does not taste like chicken floss, oppsss, from there I just remembered I am in vegan restaurant. The "G-ken floss" is very chrunchy and prefect match with the fried rice, we would give it a thumb up!

Spicy Noodle
The noodle is "yee mee", and soup base is special and tasted like coconut curry soup. A little spicy.

Green Tea with RM2 can be refilled.

Life fruit is cherry tomato, with few cherry tomato, they charge for RM2, quite pricey huh?!

For sushi, we want to order Golden Age as this seem to be their famous sushi, but it was really a big dissapoinment when the waitress told us it was finished. How can it be? Well, for the first time visit, we don't mind to try other sushi, so we ordered Happiness Couple, the set came with 8 sushi, all tasted good but the wasabi not really fresh and no strong "spicy" taste.

We would strongly recommend you to give it a try, we like the food as well as the environment. Good place for gathering and chit-chating too.

However, the food is served very slow as they have only one waitress to do all the things including open door (their door is lock and after customers press door bell, the waitress will press remote control to open the door), taking food order, serving food, taking payment, attend to customers. Hope they will improve on the speed.

For exact location, here you go:

Closed on Tuesday.

Extra note to add on: written on 3 Nov 2011
I have re-visit Sushi Kitchen yesterday, during lunch time. We plan to go on Tuesday, but they were closed, hence we call them to make reservation for yesterday lunch. This time visit brought me a BIG DISSAPOINTMENT, almost near to TOTAL DISSAPOINTMENT to Sushi Kitchen.

As mentioned, we had called to make reservation for 4 persons, but when we arrived there, below is our conversation:
We: We called to make reservation yesterday, Miss XXX.
She went to check her list and replied,
Waitress: Sorry, don't have your name written in the reservation list.
Well, since there are still plenty of seats available,
We: It's ok, just let us sit anywhere, but we want table with chair, not tatami type.
Waitress: Sorry, all tables has been reserved.
What a big FxxK? Luckily we girls not wearing skirt today, or else...

While ordering food..........
(A,B,C and D refer to 4 of us)
A: I want spicy noodle.
Waitress: Sorry, we don't have spicy noodle today. Our spicy sauce is home made and already finished by popular demand since 2 weeks ago.
A: Then meaning all the menu with "chili" label are not available?
Waitress: Yes.
A: Then give me miso soup udon.
Waitress: OK.
B: I want enoki mushroom fried rice.
Waitress: OK, white rice or brown rice?
B: White rice.
C&D: Two seaweed fried rice.
Waitress: White rice or brown rice?
C&D: White rice.
A: Let's order some sushi...golden age sushi.
Waitress: Sorry, it's finished.
B: What? Now is only lunch time, finished?
Waitress: Yes, we use only special mango to make it, and we can't get the mango now.
A: Then let's choose for other set.
C: What is fruit plate?
Waitress: It is fruit of the day.
C: What is today's fruit?
Waitress: Sorry, no fruit today because yesterday is our off day.
A&B&C&D: ...................speechless)........................

After some while, the waitress walked back and told us:
Waitress: Sorry, bad news, no white rice already, do you want to change to brown rice?
B: OK, we change it to brown rice with white rice price, is that ok?
Waitress: Cannot leh...
B: Then??? We order so many things, but all are not available, then now white rice also don't have, you request us to change to brown rice, and charge us extra RM1, how can it be?
Waitress: Or do you want to change to mee or other thing else?
D: Ok la, change la...
B: I don't want mee...
Waitress: (Speak in english now, we were speak in manderin all the while) If you don't want to change, I also can't help, we really don't have white rice.
B: Ok la, brown rice la.
Waitress: OK.

**********************************************************
That's about our conversation, I really can't accept a restaurant works in this way, they can't even provide white rice, and it was not late night at that time, it was about 1pm only, how can the food finish so early? If your business is so good, you should prepare more and please remove your "golden age sushi" from your menu, or remark with some note like "seasoning food" or what...I don't think customers want to hear "sorry, golden age sushi is finished" everytime they visit, or "our home made chili is finished, no white rice, no fruit, no this, no that", almost half the menu items are not available.

With this kind of service and price, we were charge for service tax somemore, we feel that it is not worth at all lorrrrrr.

However, the fried rice taste not bad la...But the sushi are all wrap with carrot, cucumber and some vege only, I rather eat real sushi. Yell
