Ki no me (kinome) Japanese Restaurant | The One, Penang

Ki no me, a Japanese Restaurant located at The One, Bayan Lepas. Before went there, comments from others about this restaurant are positive. Good food with good price, but need to wait for nearly one hour before the food was serve. When I blog for this restaurant, I google for Ki no me, and I found this: 木の芽, the young leaves of the sansho tree (Japanese pepper). I think the restaurant named after this leaf as I observed the wall is decorated with many greeny leaves. I believed they are ki no me. Today, we decided to give it a try, we were lucky as we get a parking space right in front of the restaurant and not crowded at the time we arrived there.

Curry Chicken Recipe | With Instant Curry Chicken Paste

This is the first time I cooked curry chicken in my life, I cooked it with instant "A1 curry chicken paste". The first experience with successful and delicious curry chicken, I am very confident to cook for second time in future. With this instant curry chicken paste, you do not need to get headache with quantity of chilli, onion, garlic, and curry powder. With simple instruction shown behind the packing, what you need are 1kg of chicken (or beef or lamb), 200ml of water and 120ml of coconut milk. I cooked with 8 chicken wings and 3 potatos. Besides, I added 5 chopped shallots (small onion) for better taste. Firstly, pour in the instant curry paste and stir for few minutes, add in chicken wings, follow by potatos. Stir evenly for another few minutes, pour in water and let them boil. When the chickens are well cooked and potatos are soft, add in coconut milk. Stir evenly and you can have a pot of very delicious curry chicken in front of you.

 

Onigiri Station | Suntech Bayan Baru, Penang

There is a new Japanese food restaurant open at Suntech Bayan Baru, Onigiri Station. Actually it is not newly open but yesterday was our first try there. We park our car at Sunshine Market and walk to the restaurant. Before we arrived at Onigiri Station, my brain already trigger me back to Japan. The fragrance from the restaurant was very similar to restaurants in Japan. This restaurant is quite small and everything is self service. I ordered a set of salmon don, which came with miso soup and green tea ice cream. Free flow of barley tea and RO water are available too.

Being a Malaysian, I am a bit(yes, a bit only) shy Embarassed to say that I have never been to Sarawak. I give myself an excuse that it is too far away from my lovely hometown, Penang island. The air ticket is quite expensive to travel from here to there. But, I think that I am lucky enough to know a friend from Sarawak, which willing to share with us the recipe of their local famous food, Kampua mee ("Gam Mua" noodle (干盘面)). Kampua mee is from Sibu and it is Fuzhou (福州) food.


My first impression about Kampua was it almost same as dry Wan Tan Mee (干云吞面), as the sauce is black in colour and it is dry mee. Well, look at the recipe and cooking method, let's compare the differences.

Firstly, cook minced pork until it is cooked. (The minced pork is merinate with 绍兴花彫酒 and soy sauce). Remove from pan. You may replace the minced pork with pork slice or cha xiu (叉烧).

Fried shallots

To prepare Kampua sauce, add soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, sugar and spring onion in fried shallots bowl. (add according to your own taste)

Kampua_6

Sweet soy sauce and light soya sauce

Kampua_7

Mee kampua sauce

Cook the mee in hot boil water, when it is soft, remove mee from hot water and mix into the sauce. Add minced pork and ready to be served!

Kampua_3

"Imported" kampua mee from Sibu

Kampua_4

It is differ with Wan Tan Mee, the mee is originally "import" from Sibu and it tasted superb with the sauce, the texture of the mee is harder and "Q" compare with Wan Tan Mee. The fried shallots and spring onions really give a big contribution to the fragrance of Kampua.

Since the "imported" mee is not easily found in penang, for penangist like me, I will replace the Mee with Indo Mee and follow the sauce from this recipe.

The Kampua mee is cook by my Sarawak friend where he learnt the recipe from his lovely Sibu's shifu. I would say that the shifu did a great job and successfully transfer her cooking skill to my friend. I would sincerely thanks both of them for sharing with us their local cuisine. So, what is the next Sarawak food recipe that you are going to share with us? Tongue out 期待ing.........Cool
