Tasty’s director, Mr Fokie Fok address the idea that Tasty is the sort of restaurant which placed emphasis on the quality of food, using imported ingredients  from Hong Kong and China.

The cold dish of duck wing in rice wine is listed as a starter. The duck wings with long hours of marinating with Chinese rose wine are cooked and then kept cold in the refrigerator. The fragrance of the rose wine is on the lighter side, but nevertheless, made a great nibble before the meal.

A weekend in the kitchen making Cantonese steamed pau under the supervision of my mother-in-law is fun and challenging. It is not easy and lots of practice is needed particularly in picking up the edges and wrapping the filling.

For homemade pau, it is always rewarding with endless choices of sweet and savory meat filling. Savory ones include barbecue-flavored char siew pau 叉燒包, lap cheong pau 臘腸包 and sang yoke pau 生肉包. Our recipe calls for chicken, Chinese sausages, black mushrooms and hard-boiled egg.

Flavor is good but the texture so far is not as fluffy compared to those sold outside. And the pau tends to sink a bit after steaming, which had it looking a bit flat. Will try to do better…

Tho Yuen Chicken Rice Restaurant is an old Cantonese restaurant located in a two storey building at Campbell Street Penang, right next the popular Kwong Tuck (sundry shop). Business has been going around for many decades now and the place is still as popular.

This restaurant serves dim sum for breakfast and varieties of noodles, porridge and Chicken Rice during lunch hour. The interior of the restaurant was recently given a new paint job for a cleaner and brighter outlook! I was there during lunch break and the place was filled with customers with some having to settle for the tables set up in the pavement.

The day started with a “yum cha” session at the old eatery, Aik Hoe Restaurant located in Carnavon Street Penang.  This restaurant which occupied two shop houses still managed to retain its old nostalgic charm after fifty over years.

The fixtures of old ceiling fans with flooring of small squares of blue and white tiles still remain there after all these years, making this place a real heritage in its own way.

Nothing much have changed and the restaurant still has the very ‘Chinese old school look’, even still with its signature metal chairs. The shop’s name has been embedded into the metal chair itself; a real rare find nowadays.
