The One With Childhood Food Memories At Fusan

My childhood days were spent in a small town some ten kilometres away from Ipoh. The place is famous for its (smallish) hill, one of the few in the cities, and the origin of the famous Malaysian peanuts.

Yes, I grew up in Menglembu, and I am proud of it. Menglembu, if literally translated from Malay to English, means “to cow”.

Apart from the occasional cows blocking traffic around the town and the grazing herds crowding out playgrounds, there were not that many cows in Menglembu, to be honest.

But hey I got distracted again. I wanted to talk about one of the places here that I remember the most. During my growing up years, breakfast is an important affair, and a fair part of it during my growing up years were spent at this restaurant called “Fusan” located directly across my house.

The food is nothing special, typical of Malaysian hawkers. But a recent visit made when I got home again last month brought back truckload of memories. Some of the original hawkers were still there! I mean, these folks toil day and night serving the same dish since I was six. That’s like more than twenty years ago.

Some things never change. Like my preferred food from Fusan.

Claypot noodle. The price might have doubled over the years, but the portion didn’t. I used to order a double portion of the noodle, plus another egg and more meat.

The One With Masala Indian Restaurant – Second Time Lucky?

Despite what I said in my previous post about Masala Indian Restaurant in Sheung Wan, my second visit here was proven to be a surprise. Perhaps because this time my friend and I did ala carte as opposed to the set meal, the quality was far better.

We ordered way too much and drank quite a bit of beer. Here’s some food porn to get you all a-Indian again, right here in Hong Kong!

Popaadam. With mint dip. Yum yum yum.

The One With Chinese New Year Family Dinner

When it comes to festive season feast, few can beat the Chinese. The vast variety, the ultra importance and the sheer cholesterol made it almost the whole point for families to travel thousand of miles to exchange pleasantries and “ang pow” (money in red packets) before the real event.

To welcome the (5th day of) Lunar New Year, allow me to continue with my series of food porn… this time focusing on Chinese New Year food in Hong Kong.

Starting the night with a glass of champagne.

The One With Glorious Dim Sum At Dim Sum Square, Again

I said it before, and I will say it again. Dim Sum Square at Jervois Street, Sheung Wan probably serves the best affordable dim sum at this part of the island. Numerous visits and countless check-ins later (I am its Foursquare mayor), I am still in love of the place.

Despite the growing queue outside, the cramped space and the occasional rude customers, I will return again and again.

Here’s some food porn to get your wet.

Three balls of pleasure.

It’s the juicy inside which got me shivering in delight.
