It was one of those days where we dragged out of bed late (Cantonese says 'tai-yong-sai-pei-ku' meaning sun shines backside) and took a heavy brunch. Tummies only started growling way after lunchtime. So, I decided to go light as not to spoil dinner but as for Phitoy, it's obvious his hunger took control.
Ever since a trip to Hongkong where I tasted a 'best-ever' black sesame glutinous dumpling in hot ginger soup, I've been ordering d similar thing whenever possible, hoping to quell the craving. So far, the search has been fun but not very successful. Oddly though quite a number of dessert shops here tend to serve them dry or dunked into a choice of sweet thick liquid dessert of red bean, peanut or sesame. In this shop, the dumplings were not sold separately but has to be ordered together with a bowl of thick liquid dessert. But well well well I was surpised and happy to find that the dumplings were served floating in its own bowl of ginger soup next to my choice of peanut soup. And the taste? Good!As mentioned, Phitoy did not go light. He took the Cheese Baked Rice with Chicken Chop. It took quite a while to arrive and when it did, I couldn't wait to pinch a few spoonful as the cheese smelled wonderful. Yumyum. The chicken was tender and flavourful. Another winner! Both of us had a glass of soyabean+black jelly drink (aka Michael Jackson). It was well, ok-lor.There, our bill:- Location: Familiar with Bandar Baru Sri Petaling? It's in the middle of a row of new shophouses facing the road which connects Sri Petaling and Happy Garden, Old Klang Road. Confused? Anyone out there can help?
Oya! A peek into d calendar made me realised tomorrow is 'Koh-Tong'!! For those who are swallowing 'tong-yuen' (small glutinous rice dumplings) tomorrow, happy aging another year! For those who don't, well, there's no stopping the aging process, so let's do it d delicious way! Gulp.
