When comes to Chinese New Year, what is there extra? One thing of course there would be extra ang pau’s as we only take once a year. If its not enough then head down to Extra Super Tanker at Damansara Kim for extra umph on their food.

I can only say that I discover this restaurant very recently with influence of Pureglutton and Ken. They are so frequent that often saying how good that this restaurant is and its a must come, till last year I follow them for a special menu ordering that end up paying RM135 each per pax. I must say its one of a unique meal and very satisfying, that worth every penny of it.

Till then, we are back again to kick on their Chinese New Year Menu.

Yee Sang with White Bait 

super tanker (5)

Fried to crips and the ingredients use are very fresh. Compare to a few yee sang that I had, its pretty colourful but not this because none of the shredded vegetables was dyed. Toss and toss higher for good health and prosperity. White bait are fried to crispy that I just keep picking it up to munch without added in.

RM68 Half & RM88 for  Full Portion.

Many of my divers friend are against on eating Shark Fins and it had begin to take effect on some restaurant that comes out with options. This is definately a clever creation is Mandarin’s Birds Nest with Fresh Crabmeat Soup as a alternative choice. The soup is thick like sharkfin, and fresh crab meat that is prepare daily that enhance the soup taste with bird nest make it taste like shark fin. – Recommended~

RM48 per individual portion

super tanker (9)

Iceland Turbot in 2 Styles @ RM12.80/100g and the average size of the fish ranges from 1 to 1.3kg.

super tanker (11)

Turbot fish is a rare fish to have in restaurant. Those of you have not tried would want to give it a try. Flown all the way from Iceland that makes the fish meat texture different. Prepare in 2 styles that the fish meat were carefully slice with the fish bone are all left behind and deep fried. Then can just peel it off and eat it like cracker. Cracking sound is all over the table and it was gone within seconds.

super tanker (10)

What happen to the fish slice as it ended up stir fried with erringgi mushrooms and fungus. Fish meat are very soft and perfectly fried along. Sweetness of the meat is there.

super tanker (12)

Those who love yam, then Yam Treasure Trove @ RM48 – Small & RM68 – Large  – is a dish you shall not miss. This dish indicates “overflowing prosperity” and in Cantonese it means (“Poon Moon Put Moon”!). Love the mash yam that fried to crispy on outside and super soft on the yam cook along with crunchy vegetable and nuts.

super tanker (13)

I have eaten so many sea cucumber and I must say this is the biggest I have come across so far. Like how the chef do it by cutting the sea cucumber into half and pile up all the vegetable on top with fresh chewy scallops . Really suits the meaning of Abundance from the Ocean sailing all the way from Philippines. Imported sea cucumber definately wont come cheap especially seasons of Chinese New Year.

super tanker (14)

Tiger Prawns with Chef’s Special Sauce (“Hee Hah Tai Siu”). Love this sauce as its slightly spicy salty end. To pair with rice is the way to go . . RM10/100g and the minimum order is 300g

super tanker (15)

To me, super star of the night is this Braised Mutton in Claypot… that means “Hei Hei Yeong Yeong” (in Cantonese). Lamb were carefully chop into right small sizes with little bones along. Skin are quite thick and braised with wood fungus together with herbs and spices to cover the taste of lamb that many people do not like. Still the taste and smell of it is pretty obvious as I love it..

super tanker (16)

RM80 for a big pot of 12 pieces mutton that enough to feed a table of 10 pax

super tanker (18)

Salted fermented soy bean (“fu yue”) dip was served with the dish.   This is to slightly cover the lamb taste and the chef insist we must dip along. Perfect in taste.

super tanker (17)

Lap Mei Fan @ RM RM70 for 4-6 pax and RM95 for 8-12 pax.

super tanker (19)

Serve separately with pipping hot claypot then add on all the ingredient onto the pot and stir it.

After stir the ingredient of sliced Chinese sausages, waxed duck, waxed pork and liver sausages blend with slightly burnt taste of the rice, that make the taste even better.

super tanker (22)

When comes to chinese desert, this takes up alot of effort that first clean the pear out then add in ingredients and double boil it.  This is Double-boiled Snow Pear with Hasma

super tanker (23)

If you do not prefer set, all the dishes above are specially for CNY and can be order a la carte.

Their Chinese New Year Menu Price starts from RM798++, RM988++ and RM1,398++ per table of 10 pax.

super tanker (1)

I have made my reservation for CNY 3 weeks ago and its running pretty full. Do give them a call before you head over as its usually fully book during CNY..

If you are asking me where got nice Chinese Restaurant that I know, this restaurant currently top in my list and its a highly recommended place.

Braised Seafood Soup with Mickey’s shape Pumpkinn

Meal (20)

This seafood soup certainly make our day a great start with its excellent ingredient they have in it and I also believe they do cook some of the soup base first before cooking along the whole portion. Sweet in seafood taste, yet smooth texture of crab and prawns detected and if you do go , this is one of a highly recommended dish! Just do not add vinegar, it will spoil the freshness and taste of the whole soup.

Meal (21)

Wok-Fried Shrimps and Disney Rot  Vegetabe mix fm

Meal (22)

Last 2 weekend when got a bit long weekend holiday, my friend tag me along to a mini makan trip as they are on they way for their business trip and for me, its just more on pure eating~ 😀 . The town is call Pusing.

One of the business partner, introduce me to his small little hometown where by  a few streets away is his grandmother’s place. This small little town is call Pusing, which is located about 20 minutes drive from Ipoh town towards north. If you ask me where the hell am I at the moment, the only answer I can provide you is, I do not know!

Pusing (1)

Its on Monday and the streets here are pretty quiet, a very peaceful town that every one is very friendly. Actually this town is a little Hakka town that according to my friend 90% of them are Hakka. So for hakka speaking people, this will be your chance to shine~

Pusing (2)

If you are talking about to stay in the town, this is the only hotel available which is Pusing Hotel and by far the biggest too, with only 4 rooms available. If you do plan to stay here, book early! :p

Pusing (3)

Then he brought me to this shop that sells one of the local specialty that have no signboard like Ah Seng Kopitiam or watsoever, the only thing for you to recognize is this Blue Zink corner shop with fruit stall right at the front.

Pusing (4)

or directly opposite you can see this gate  . . .

Pusing (5)

This is the noodle that he is very keen on introducing me, as we are very far from heavy breakfast this morning or I would say a while ago, Its hard for me to finish this bowl by myself. If you guys know what is written in Mandarin, please help me translate.!

Pusing (6)

I ask the store owner what is their signature noodle, and they told me curry soup base is their best among neigbourhood. Well, give it a try then . .

Pusing (7)

Love the curry as its, very mild and light in flavor, right after taste is a bit spicy at the end whereby the coconut milk is not too milky yet the soup is aromatic with a bit pandan taste. Its totally different type of curry flavour I have tried so far and the best thing is according to my friend that the noodle is homemade by themselves that the texture taste a bit like laksa noodle and spaghetti, its very unique.

The best part does not only stop on the noodle, GUESS how much is this bowl of noodle? RM1.50 . . ( I was like haaaaaa ??!!! RM 1.50 where the hell can we get a meal in that kind of price.)

You will be surprise how cheap the food in this town is. Yet most of the stalls operate in this kopitiam are homecook style!

Pusing (8)

Another stall that the guy called Ah Chong highly recommend is his favourite Nyonya kuih stall.

Pusing (9)

There are 3 kuih stalls operate side by side that sells different type’s of kuih~

Pusing (10)

This uncle that sells a bit of nyonya kuih style which is highly recommended by my friend.

Pusing (11)

We bought everything in the stalls 2 pieces each that comes out in a 2 big bag and it cost us RM8.70 which our jaw drop again. This uncle made his kuih fresh daily and alot of his business are more on neighbourhood business.

I am definitely coming back for this uncle again as the kuih is good, aromatic and nice!

Pusing (12)

another stalls that selling other types of kuih~

Okay, now that’s the question . .. . HOW to come here right? I have no freaking idea but then if you can find PUSING Police Station then you can find this place easily as its just about a row of shop houses away~

If you are asking me, if you want some cheap nice food, PUSING town is one of the place to hunt for. I will sure be back for their food again if there is a chance and will ta pau a whole big bag of Kuih back to Penang or KL.

As early on Friday morning, that one of my best friend suddenly ccalled me during my meeting and just laugh his ass of without saying anything, and keep laughing non stop till I ask him ‘OOIIII…what happen la? Ki siau ahhh (went crazy iziit) ???!!! Then only he cool down.. Bok, you are famous liau!!! saw you in a forum and soo many people commenting on you~ I stunned and I was like don play la (cuz he was know as a joker and prankster). Then if you don believe, I ask the other guy to tag you..I said okok..wait for your good news. . .

So when another friend tag me in FB then I got shock !! oi.. that’s me in the picture and why got number eh? ask to buy toto number ah? Then called back my friend and ask him what is the meaning of this and he told me its related to MCA. I got blurrr again. . .

Well, my dear friends, this is memang me in the picture and for the past 2 days, the picture had been circulated wide enough to reach my friends that as far from Aus, some called me up , some left me in FB msg with different kind of comment. . .:)

One thing I am impress is that, after the news got announce 2 days ago, and online media had manage to get one of my pic in the blog to created and edit, then they choose the pic that I so ngam ngam got take some pictures with them and put in my blog and one of them picture got from my blog (Tiger Crystal Beer Lauching – Click here) and edit as below:

Remark: I have got noting to do with all this, MCA thingy, just so happen to be a victim in the topic. 

To make the thing short and I don know how to read mandarin, by my understanding so far is that, MCA youth is recruiting youth members into their parties and apparently, this 4 young girls are recruited with to show that, in the party got young and old mixture as part of gaining confidence back from the citizen. Well, many reason that MCA is trying to come up with many comments too.

I doubt that girl in both the columm are not the same or maybe my eyesight got problem, anyway, I have no idea.. as that is what being compared . . .

I have long been craving for very nice Szechuan food, the last I had best was in my study time in Melbourne. . . It was not until recently, my friend bring me to this store located at Jalan Alor which is their favourite food for Szechuan, which is Kedai Makanan dan Minuman TKS.

szechuan (1)

This post will be a bit awkward due to all their menu is written in Mandarin and my friend order all the dish, therefore there will be no proper pricing and food name ..

szechuan (2)

For those who cant really eat Spicy szechuan food, then can try out this Lotus Root, fried till crips, a bit mild in taste with very mild spiciness with a bit of wok hei, I love it~

szechuan (3)

Another dish, the finely cut potato cook till it taste like cripsy vegetable. Taste mild spiciness. . .

szechuan (4)

szechuan (5)

This soup base is one of the best, not too spicy that is just perfect, soup base is very sweet yet spicy and I kept drinking this soup till its last drop.

szechuan (6)

This is super spicy with lots of chili oil floating on top and the meat cook till its soft and tender. . . The first sip of the soup my sweat instantly came out yet I am loving it, thick in taste yet super spicy

szechuan (7)

This is another different pot that cook with fish meat, smooth meat and do not underestimate this, as it is very spicy also.

szechuan (8)

Fried Dumpling, pan fried till the bottom its a bit crispy, inside filled with soup base and add in with vinegar and ginger with the dipping chili oil my friend specially mix on it is super nice. We order 2 plate of this.

szechuan (9)

So far, in KL, I find that this is the best stall that served Szechuan food . .total bill came around RM110 and we are tottally satisfied.

Its a recommended store by me if you love Szechuan hawker style spicy food. . .
