Nasi Lemak Sungai Yan, Kedah 椰浆饭


My Hometown Food: Nasi Lemak @ Sungai Yan, Kedah.

One of the best nasi lemak :D The unique of rice flavoured with heaps of spices, topped with the sweet and spicy sambal, and wrapped in a traditional banana leaves to make it tastes so good!!! Everyone plays a main character. Without you, no one is perfect. It is so true that unity makes strength!!






Still taste so good after so many years. It is quite hard to maintain the quality of taste. Proud of you makcik. Dad said it is only RM0.60 each. So cheap right??? I still remember it was only RM0.30 when I was in primary school. A very traditional Malaysian Malay food that loved by everyone and craved by every Malaysian that live oversea and those live in the city. You can only find this price and superior taste in KAMPUNG( village). 

* Sungai Yan is a very small town in a village surrounded by paddy field. However there are a lot of nice places nearby such as waterfall spots, thousands step staircase to Gunung Jerai, fisherman's market and small islands. Due to its awesome geography location, my dad always takes his bicycle around the villages nearby, early in the morning with his bike's friends.

Cintan Mee Recipe ( Stir Fry Noodles ) 炒金旦面

Cintan Mee - The Ding Dong Mee


I love Cintan Mee so much, whether it is stir-fried with tomyam or soy sauce. I 'developed' this dish from an old kopitiam in my hometown which used to be famous of Cintan Mee. The shop was owned by an old couple but they closed the shop when I was in Year 5? Oh it was long time ago! Everyone miss their cintan mee. 
Thank god for gifted me such a good tongue and I made it!!! The taste is similar but the method of preparing is differ from the old couple. Also, I skip some ingredients to make it easy and simple. 

My sister loves it because she misses it so much as she was away from home for so many years. I remembered when I was in primary school and she came back from oversea, she will ask me to take away for her and she wanted it dry ( less sauce compare to the wet one). I could see she enjoys this dish so much whenever I cooked.



Sadly I don't have any photo of how was the noodles looked. I really miss it. So why I said my cooking method is diffe…

I would like to skip the comment about the sauce because nothing special and very light in taste. However, the flesh was indeed very fresh and heaps!!! We struggled to finish the whole fish because it was very huge and this dish came out last. I wonder why it came out last??? This dish should come out in the middle because it is good to go with rice...

Bee Hooi Cafe @ Pulau Tikus, Penang

What to eat at Bee Hooi Cafe/kopitiam? 
1. Char Hor Fan ( Flat-wide Rice Noodles with Gravy )
2. Chicken Porridge
3. Duck Egg Char Kuey Tiao ( Stir Fry Flat Rice Noodles with Duck Egg )


My first time here was just a coincident stop-by a random kopitiam to take away supper. There sells quite a selection of food even though not as variety as the food court of course. However you can find some good food here! Well, the best and my favourite is still the 'Char Hor Fan'!
Char Hor Fan I ordered the Char Hor Fan since I haven't eaten for awhile. I was so excited when I had the first spoon - the taste that I missed > The Authentic Taste! The sauce didn't overwhelm the flavour of stir fry noodles. You can still taste the wok taste and the noodle wasn't so oily too. The stall are owned by an old couple. I wish they could teach me how to cook this. RM5 for a plate of Char Hor Fun.

Not just the flat rice noodles, they also stir fry it with a little bit of vermicelli. Some people d…
