I saw this yummy biscuits while i was reading the introduction of MFF Penang in Alan's. It is one of Penang local famous delicacy. The Tambun Pheah or Tau Sar Piah or Tambun biscuits is a slightly crisp and flaky on the outside.

Hainanese Spring Roll (海南春卷)

This is another Penang food that i learn from Wendy. I love spring rolls, be it of any type of spring roll. I just love them. I saw there is another type of spring roll called Penang Lok Bak from Alan's blog, I would like to try that out too. This Hainanese spring roll is using a own made crepe sheets. It is difference from those spring roll that uses popia skin or normal  bean curd sheets. Please refer to Wendy's video before you attempt to make this crepe sheet for this spring roll. You will have a clear idea on how to cook a prefect and nice crepe sheet. My first piece of crepe was bad, i tear it :p because i didn't watch the video ahead which i should. The crepe sheets is soft when it is hot so it is not easy to handle. If it is not handle well it will tear before it is cool. Another thing i found out is that if the crepe sheet is not cooked enough it will break when wrapping up the filling.  PLEASE!! watch Wendy's video , you will make a beautiful cre

Acar Awak..娘惹菜Acar Awak

Participating in MFF every month let me learn a lot of authentic Malaysian food from different states which is very interesting  and new to me. This month is Penang month and Penang is a state that have lots and lots and lots of yummlicious food. This is 'Acar Awak' means pickled mixed vegetable . I first tried this when a mum of  my Shawn's class mate gave me a tub. Its difference from what we have here. After trying that tub i missed this Acar, the taste is so special with all the mixed vegetables...but at that time i did not know it is called Acar Awak. Until recently i saw Wendy post hers..I quickly try out the recipe. It turn out great and we enjoy this Acar Awak very much ^_^ Thanks to Wendy!   Acar 是 娘惹菜的其中一种,需要动用许多种本地香料和蔬菜配搭而完成。 制作过程是蛮多功夫的(麻烦一些:p),而也需要花费 蛮 长时间来准备。 可是出来的成品.....香味浓烈,非常爽口,之前的努力都觉得物有所值!
