How to cook curry duck in one easy step. Ask your spice man to pack the right spices and tadaaaa....curry duck.
The fresh spice I get from Cecil Street Market costs me a mere RM2-RM3. Specify how much duck, I.e. half for my pot.
Come home, heat oil, add some cardamon, clove, cinnamon and star anise. Once fragrant, add curry paste and stir till pecah minyak. Add duck. Add some tamarind juice. Simmer. When tender, add coconut milk from the carton.
Curry duck is rare. Not many mamak sells it. Tajuddin in Queen Street is good. But its cheaper to DIY cos a duck costs only RM20 and I need only half.
I am keeping this overnight because it tastes better. ...
Have you ever felt wasted calories on lousy foods? How you wish you did not have to eat and put on weight over not tasty foods?
I had a meal at one big coffee shop in Island Glades that offer every kind of hawker foods. Actually we wanted to go to Delima Cafe which is older, less choices but serves good chicken rice but it was closed.
So we went to an unnamed one (I dowan get sued lol). The Mama Satay is good. Wild boar and pork at 90 sen each. The curry mee is not bad but no prawns so I am not too excited.
The orchien looks very good which was why I ordered. But bleh, it is just so-so. Had to force self and son and husband to finish it. The oyster is rubbery, the flour has no flavour and the garlic chillie paste lacks oomph.
So yeah...I dont like huge kopitiams especially when it is hard to get a table and you have waiting customers standing above you and waiting impatiently for you to slowly slowly nibble on rubbery oyster and choking on your curry mee. ...
The famous wantan mee prepared by the elderly couple which was formerly at Tai Wah along Jalan Argyll has moved a few doors to Chee Meng Kopitiam which is opposite Caltex. The new place is more spacious and they also sell nasi lemak kacang and other stuffs like siu pau.
If you have not tried this breakfast wantan mee, you should. I say it is the best in town. There are two choices, one is the regular dark soysauce type which I do not like as I find it too sweet. I normally order the white version which has no sweetish dark soysauce. Instead, I get a lighter version just oil and a hint of the bbq char siu flavour.
Their coffee is great and the friendly daughter is very welcoming and friendly. They open from 7 am till about 11 am. Be prepared to wait as the wantan mee is lovingly and expertly dished out by the uncle and it is rather slow. However, each plate is served very hot and I usually cannot wolf down fast enough to rush to work. The soup has that traditional taste. My plate of wantan mee with extra four wantans in a bowl is only RM5.
Chee Meng coffeeshop is at the corner of Argyll Road and Transfer Road, right opposite Caltex. It is the only coffee shop opening early in the morning so you can't missed it. ...
Sometimes, I strike on a right combination and came up with something delicious. Today is one of them. I surfed The Star’s site and read two recipes, from Amy Beh and Majorie Chiew. I combined both ideas and make use with whatever I have in my fridge and came up with this recipe.
