Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe | Lebuh Macallum, Penang

Camus and I took a day off from our busy life to enjoy our own sweet time. He brought me to this cafe located at Lebuh Macallum. He told me we can have our breakfast with coffee and bread kind of breakfast which I like. We arrived there on weekday morning around 10:30am and the cafe was very empty, only one customer during the time we were there. Plenty of parking space outside the cafe. Cakes at RM13 per piece! After enter the cafe, a young man passed us a menu, we seated and read through the menu. I was shocked when look at the menu and do not know what to order at the first glance, I focus on the price and feel hard to choose my meal as they are very expensive to me. In the end, we get one Macallum breakfast and Smoked Salmon Bagel, one cafe latte and one cappucino, there gone our RM55! Talk about the cafe, I found this cafe is quite nice as the fragrance really attracted me when I first enter the cafe. I like the fragrance and it is quite different with other cafe as I can smell something soury. I am not sure what is this fragrance until I get my latte and cappucino. The sweet aroma of coffee taking over my senses, they are creamy, smooth coffee I longed for. Cappucino and Latte Maccallum breasfast came with sunny side up, avocado, chicken frankfurter, chicken bacon, grilled capsicum, baked potatoes, bread and salad. Portion is quite big. I like the chicken frankfurter which the size like german sausage. Smoked salmon bagel came with smoked salmon with wasabi cream cheese, rocket leaves and pinch of capers. I do not understand most of the terms mentioned in the menu except for "smoked salmon". Now as I am writing, I compare the menu and photo I took, I cannot find "wasabi cream cheese" from my photo, why? Mana dia pi? Oh, the one spread between the bagel? It's wasabi cream cheese? Not butter? To me, this smoked salmon has nothing special but I do like rocket leaves. And now I know what is capers, it is the small tiny things appeared on top of the roll smoked salmon. Ooppsss, we do not finish that even though only served with 3 biji, what a waste? I thought they were just a decoration to the smoked salmon... Overall, Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe is a good place to enjoy coffee but sincerely, it was a very expensive experience to me.

Half Day Trip to Penang Hill (Bukit Bendera), Penang

This is the first time we went to Penang Hill after visited there since years ago. In my mind, Bukit Bendera is a cool place, where you can go away from super hot Penang island. Also, being prepared that there is "nothing" at the top hill. With this mindset, I prepared a jacket, pizza and some light foods for the trip. We went in early morning on last Sunday morning, arrived there at about 8.15am. After park our car at their carpark (RM3 per entry), we went to buy ticket. Ticket charge for adult is RM8 per person, if you show your Malaysia identity card to them (child is RM4). By the time we buy the ticket, there is no body in the queue, so we thought the visitor must be very few.

 

Organic White Bitter Gourd / Bitter Melon 白苦瓜

Recently, during our visit to my uncle's farm, we get to know a new type of vegetable, bitter gourd in creamy white colour. It was an organic bitter gourd that did not use any fertilizer. My uncle gave one to mom for take away!      

 

Easy Egg Tart Recipe

I make it! I make it! After years of phobia, I finally overcome it with this recipe. An egg tart recipe that I found from other blogger. I got the recipe and bought a can of evaporated creamer for quite some times. Last weekend, I decided to bake this recipe. When I saw the egg tarts were nicely came out from my smart oven, I was so happy and feel worth it to bake them in front of hot oven on this super hot weather day. This few weeks, the weather in Penang was so hot. It makes my body hot, temper hot! Thank God that the egg tarts turn out nicely, or else somebody might need to sacrifice and listen to my complain again.

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_2

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
