Exquisite Shanghainese Hairy Crabs at J.W. Marriott

When I first heard of ‘Hairy Crab‘, I imagined it to be a shelled creature with lots of hair all over the body. Yes, I have to admit this was my first time seeing, touching, feeling and eating a Hairy Crab. In fact, it looked just like any other type of crab, except that it’s much smaller, and with hairy legs. I had the privilege to taste the seasonal hairy crabs at Shanghai Restaurant in J.W. Marriott hotel.

Apparently, hairy crabs are only available during the autumn season in China, where the sky is blue and the air is crisp. It’s also the weather when the hairy crabs are most succulent and delicious. This delicate crustacean is only available from the ninth to eleventh months in the Chinese lunar calendar. Shanghai Restaurant, being the only hotel Chinese restaurant in KL that specializes in exquisite Shanghai cuisine, is proud to create several palatable dishes made from hairy crab. We were lucky to be there on the day they restocked the hairy crabs! Look at their fridge!

After taking a look at the crabs, we were fascinated and couldn’t wait to taste it!

Tidbits

We started with the Steamed Shanghainese Hairy Crabs, which looked pretty small compared to the average crab size. But just look at the amount of roe inside!

With the small size of a crab, it is expected to have less meat compared to the usual, but its prized possession is really the roe. Rich and semi-liquid, it tasted a little like salted egg yolk but with crab goodness. Really, it’s something that you have to taste to feel it.

The waiters served the crabs very delicately and professionally. After serving us the carapace, they used the scissors to cut off the legs and pincers and served them on another plate. So very meticulous, don’t you think? The meat was just bite-size but sweet and tender.

Hairy crab is supposed to have a ‘cooling’ effect to our body, whereby excessive amount of it would lead to fainting or dizziness. Therefore, a glass of warm ginger tea was served to counter the ‘cooling’ effect of the crabs. And this tea was refilled unlimited times, too! Saucer and I both loved the tea!

After savouring the steamed hairy crabs, we were served some dishes creatively carved from Hairy Crabs. But before that, some vegetarian appetizers!

The first Hairy Crab inspired dish was the Steamed Shanghainese dumplings with hairy crab meat and roe, which was one of my favourite. The dumpling skin was ever so thin and delicate, that it looked too fragile  for me to even hold it with chopsticks. But the waiter served us a dumpling each, so skilfully, without a single tear. And I popped the whole dumpling, soup and crab meat, into my mouth – to be brought to heaven and back. Really, there’s no other way to describe the feeling and you simply have to put the whole dumpling into the mouth to experience this delight. The broth was really sweet with the essence of crab, while the crab meat and roe added so much richness to the whole combination. Very well done.

The next one was Fried bamboo fish fillets with hairy crab meat and roe, where I found the fish fillet to be very smooth and flaky. Coupling the fresh fish with the hairy crab meat and roe was very complementary. The fish with its firm texture but bland taste, plus the crab roe’s soft texture but rich flavour. Yummy!

Next, we had something out of the hairy crab menu, which was Stir Fried Beef fillet with Scallion. Even though simple, this dish impressed our taste buds – the beef fillet was extremely tender and juicy. Master Chef Wong said that the controlling of the heat of wok during the cooking of this dish was imperative to ensure the beef to reach its perfect texture and taste.

The Stir-fried Shanghainese glutinous rice cakes with hairy crab meat and roe reminded me of the rice cakes I had in Korea. It had the exact same texture and taste, but this was shaped flat and cooked with different sauce. It’s also called ‘nian gao’ in Mandarin. On its own, it has a chewy texture with no taste, but cooking it with hairy crab meat and roe brought the rice cakes to a different dimension altogether. The taste was elevated a few notches, whereby the richness of the crab roe surrounded the rice cakes so well that you couldn’t help but to take one piece after another. Addictive!

The glorious spread of Hairy Crab inspired dishes were all thanks to Master Chef Wong Wing Yeuk who originated from Shanghai and spent a good number of years in Hong Kong. Hence, he was able to converse in Cantonese pretty fluently! The Chef brought in lots of authentic Shanghainese dishes to Malaysia, at the same time tweaking the dishes to capture the local’s taste buds.

After dinner, we had desserts! Of all the desserts we had, I particularly loved the Deep Fried Bun with Custard and Egg Yolk filling or ‘lau sar pau’ in Cantonese. It was my first time having this delicacy and my gosh, where was it hiding all this while?

The bun was deep fried to perfection, with a crispy layer of skin outside and warm and soft interior. Splitting the bun in two, I could see the glorious yellow custard and egg yolk filling oozing out from within, piping hot and oh-so-fragrant. It was definitely an experience to remember and a taste that I certainly will not forget! A highly recommended piece of art from Shanghai restaurant, you simply have to try this out!

Freshwater Prawns at Luen Fong, Tualang

Most people out of Perak may not have heard about Tanjung Tualang, a small town district in Perak, famous for its freshwater prawns. Previously a tin mining area, the ponds now have been converted to rear huge and fleshy prawns instead. Located just 20 minutes from Kampar, we were there one weekend to savour its famous prawns. There were quite a number of restaurants in Tualang but we settled for Luen Fong restaurant in the end.

Luen Fong Seafood

Home made chilli sauce

There were about 9 of us and we ordered 2 kg of freshwater prawns, done in 2 ways – the Pan-fried (Kon Chin Har) and Steamed prawns. The Pan-fried prawns were really fragrant and savoury. It was a simple dish with minimal seasonings but the freshness of the prawns was unmistakable.

Luen Fong Seafood

Pan fried prawns (RM60/kg)

The Steamed Freshwater prawns were the highlight of the meal. One of the distinguished feature of Tualang freshwater prawns was their very big heads compared to the body, and the red skin. In fact, there are restaurants in Tualang that use non-Tualang prawns to be ‘mixed’ with the Tualang prawns to trick customers. If you look at the plate below, some prawns were not as red as the others, and we’re suspecting some ‘mixing’ to have taken place.

Steamed Freshwater Prawns (RM60/kg)

Tualang or non-Tualang, we never really know, but what I know was the prawns were really succulent and sweet. Each bite was oozing with the freshness of prawns, juicy and delicious. It was really different with sea water prawns. You have to try it!

Other than prawns, we also had Squid which came in a pretty sizable portion. The squid was springy and fat, with spicy peanut sauce. Very appetizing!

If you’re in Luen Fong, you simply must try their Home Made Beancurd. Perhaps it has something to do with the water in Perak, but somehow I always find bean curd here to be much smoother and more delicious than the ones found in KL. I might be biased so you have to try it out and let me know. I loved the home made beancurd here, in fact, in most of the restaurants in Kinta Valley. They’re superbly soft and smooth!

And finally, fried rice for those who were not full yet. The fried rice was not something to shout about, but definitely served the purpose of filling the tummy with carbs. It was fragrant and savoury, though perhaps a little lack of ‘wok hei’ or heat of wok. Perhaps a busy kitchen that day?

If you haven’t tried freshwater prawns from Tualang, you really must drop by. If not Luen Fong, then any other restaurants here would do too. It’s simply different from seawater prawns. :)

A Walk Down the Memory Lane at Reminisce Cafe

Entering the new cafe in Mid Valley, I was brought to a whole new era of the past. Boasting of white chairs and tables, the restaurant named Reminisce was decorated with plenty of knick knacks from the 80’s such as comic books, stickers, telephone cards, soft drink bottles and more. It was really interesting to see ornaments that I used to play with, and the junk food that I used to it!

True enough, Reminisce Cafe aims to bring back the memories of the past through food. Some of their food were even designed with the past in mind. For example, they serve Hot Milo with a cracker! Ah, I don’t know why, I only did that years ago, with my grandpa or grandma. Now it doesn’t even cross my mind to have Milo with crackers anymore.

The menu is pretty extensive with street snacks, noodles, rice as well as desserts. Some of the street snacks we sampled were the Stuffed Pork Balls, Spring Rolls and Deep Fried Nian Gao. I simply loved the Nian Gao, it was done just the way my grandma does it during Chinese New Year! Now I don’t have to wait until Chinese New Year to be able to savour this snack. :)

For the mains, we started with Toasted Soft bun with Bakwa, Meat Floss and Egg. This was something I wanted to try from the menu since I love Bakwa and meat floss! But I didn’t know how it would taste like combining with fried egg though. I thought the chef was pretty creative in combining the savoury meat with an egg for a more balanced meal in terms of texture and taste. However, this should be eaten while it’s warm since the bread started to become a little hard when it’s left for too long.

Then, we had something more heavy, which was the Crispy chicken chop with steamed rice combo. I took a bite of the chicken chop and I loved how it was not overly oily, which is usual with deep fried stuff. It was very crispy, light and savoury. Something I would order when I have a big appetite. But I would, however, prefer to have some gravy with the chicken and rice so that it wouldn’t be too dry. Perhaps some mushroom sauce?

The next dish was my favourite that night! Though simple, the Dry curry chicken noodle was cooked to perfection! The noodles were springy and light, while the curry was fragrant and flavourful. In fact, all of us loved it so much that we ordered a second bowl with just the noodles itself!

The lucky us that night had the chance to savour a dish which is not in the menu yet – Steam rice with spare ribs crowned with special Mongolian sauce. The ribs were braised and had a soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture when eaten with the layers of fat.

The Braised duck drumstick with Chinese herbs on rice vermicelli was another hit especially with the few of us who stayed in Penang before. This is something famous in Penang but not widely available here in KL, so we’re really grateful now that we can have it here at Reminisce.

Finally, the Nasi Lemak with Curry Chicken had one of the hottest and fiery sambal ever! But it was very addictive and made me wanting to eat more, especially with the spicy sambal. A very local Malaysian dish indeed.

Reminsce Cafe

Moving on to the desserts! We sampled a few types that night but Saucer and my favourite was the one and only Lemon grass jelly with Aloe Vera. Served cold, it was refreshing and just slightly sweet and sour, together with the aloe vera jelly which was very cooling to the body. It was perfect during the hot weather or when you’re feeling heaty.

Even though there were some hits and misses with the food, Reminisce definitely hits the spot when it comes to bringing back memories of the past. The feeling of being there was very surreal, evoking different emotions and definitely lots of childhood memories.

Unboxing the Samsung ST600 Dual Screen Camera

Recently Samsung launched a new dual-screen compact camera, with the tagline “Two Screens. Twice the Fun”. Ever since I sold my LX3 about 2 months ago, I have not had the chance to use another compact camera, until now. Thanks to Advertlets and Samsung Malaysia, I now have the chance to review the new ST600! The camera came in a box shaded with red and pink.

Samsung ST600

Samsung ST600 box

Opening the box, the standard items that come with it are a charger, USB cable, A/V cable, a manual, a CD, camera case, warranty card and of course, the camera itself. The ST600 comes in 2 colours – purple and black, and the one that I got was a sleek black colour.

Samsung ST600

Inside the box of ST600

My first impression of the camera was how compact it was, and how solid! The body was shiny and sleek, with gleaming black colour. The surface is really nice to hold and to stroke. *LOL*

Samsung ST600

Samsung ST600 Dual screen camera

Also, the back side of the camera has a huge 3.5″ screen which covers the whole of the camera. It was a touch screen camera! Being a user of iPhone, I am used to the responsive and sensitive screen of iPhone so when I used the Samsung ST600 touch screen, I felt that it lacked sensitivity. Most of the time, I had to press it either longer or deeper for the touch to be recognized.

Samsung ST600

The size of the camera almost fits my palm. It’s really compact and small compared to my previous bulky LX3. And of course, the new feature that I can’t wait to test, the front LCD.

Samsung ST600

Small and compact ST600

The LCD on the back side has vivid and bright colours. I love the big and wide screen for it allows me to see what I’m capturing clearly. Did I also mention that the ST600 has equivalent of 27mm focal length, which means it can capture a wider viewing angle. I will show you how wide it is in a test shot later. ;)

Samsung ST600

Touch screen on the back of Samsung ST600

The front LCD can be activated with a tap on the front LCD or by pressing the hot key ‘F.LCD’ on the top of the camera. It’s really useful for people who like to camwhore. There are just too many times when I tried to take picture of myself only to end up being out of frame or out of focus.

I have yet to fully try out the functions and capabilities of this camera but let me show you just a few test shots taken recently. I didn’t do any touch ups to the photos (just resizing them) so that you can see the actual performance of this camera.

3-day Getaway to Penang – Part 3 (finale)

After the 2 days of my Penang getaway here and here, it was finally our last day in the Pearl of the Orient! Since my mom’s visitors needed to leave Penang in the afternoon, we woke up early for breakfast. Looking for food in the early morning was not my forte, since I’m not really a morning person, :P but thankfully, I remembered the place that Wai Lian brought me to once! The place with Super Hokkien Mee that you need to go preferably before 9am or risk it being sold out. Breakfast was at One Corner Cafe at Jalan Bawasah, where the signature dish is the Super Hokkien Mee.

The Loh Bak here was just average but the Char Kuey Teow was a hit! My mom’s friends ordered a plate after another!

After breakfast, it was shopping time! I had stayed in Penang for almost 5 years before this and never knew of the places that we went to until that day. We actually went to this place in Tanjung Bunga with a row of shops all selling souvenirs! The first stop was at the Cocoa Boutique, where all kinds of chocolate were displayed and sold. The customers were also allowed to taste the chocolates before buying them and seriously, the variety was just humongous! There were chocolates with all kinds of flavours – orange, alcoholic, strawberry and even durian!

Just a few doors away, was the Penang Coffee Tree shop. Penangites! Have you heard of this coffee brand before? I still haven’t! Until then, that is. Which makes me wonder whether this brand was just created for the sake of tourists or was this really Penang White Coffee as claimed by their signboard?

The shop was huge and filled with all sorts of coffee. Again, variety was aplenty such as Hazelnut, Cinnamon, Green Tea, Chocolate and possibly 20 others.

Visitors were allowed to try any type of coffee they wanted to, with the coffee coming from these thermos flasks.

Surrounding the shop were very cute coffee beans and decor made from coffee beans.

The visitors loved the coffee very much and ended up buying them by the bags! Yes, a luggage bag, no less! Every purchase of 12 packs will be given 3 packs free, and on top of that, a luggage bag was complimentary too. The luggage bag could fit EXACTLY 15 packets of coffee. Coincidence?

Just next to the White coffee place was a Batik place! This was again a shop made for tourist, judging from the looks of it.

We were there just in time to watch someone painting a piece of batik cloth. I guess the consolation is that the batik from this shop is really hand-made.

And that, my friends, marked the end of our 3-day Penang getaway! It was very satisfying to finally savour some of the food that I missed after moving to KL. Definitely there will be a return trip! :)
