Green Island Western Food | Bayan Lepas, Penang

Not long ago, there is one newly open western food restaurant open at The One, Bayan Lepas. Feedback from friends that they serve reasonable price range western food, just like James Foo. Although I am Penangite, but experience to dine in James Foo is only once. But that one time experience gave us a good impression on the food and price range. Due to far distance from home, we seldom have chance to visit there often. Hence this newly open restaurant is a good place for us to visit as it is nearer to our company and house. Wifi is available in the restaurant.

 

Char Koay Kak 炒粿角 | Bringchang Pasar Malam | Cameron Highland

I found this Char Koay Kak (炒粿角) at Bringchang Pasar Malam (night market), Cameron Highland. It is a typical Char Koay Kak, which is frying together with bean sprouts (豆芽), chives (韭菜) and egg.  

 

James Foo Western Food | Tanjong Tokong Penang

James Foo western food is located in Tanjung Tokong Penang. I have heard of it's popularity since years ago, but have not find a chance to try it. Last two weeks, we have decided to go there for dinner. Without disappointment, we are quite satisfied with the food, on the portion and taste. We ordered steak without mentioned on how well we want the beef to be cooked. When the steak was served, we were surprised to see the steak was medium well cooked. We can still see blood came out from the beef, it was yummy.

 

Kuro Goma Ice Cream | Japan Yokohama

During our visit to Japan Yokohama China Town, we noticed a black colour ice cream. It is now winter season in Japan, but the cold weather does not stop us from trying this unfamiliar colour ice cream. It is a black sesame flavour ice cream which cost 260 yen. Kuro means black and Goma means sesame in Japanese.

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).

Ingredients needed

Then fried shallots in hot pan oil until golden brown. Remove from pan together with oil.

Kampua_5

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

Hi Juju, I am not sure where to get the noodle in Penang. I got this mee from my Sarawak friend. You can try to replace it with Indo Mee or Wan Tan Mee. :D
