Simple Dinner @Poh San Restaurant, Ipoh Garden East

Thai Style Chicken
deep fried chicken topped with shredded cucumber 
and pour on with a sweet and spicy thai chillie sauce

My cousin and aunt from Singapore came visiting and I brought them to eat at Poh San restaurant which is near my place . I ordered a few of their signature dishes which are our favourites.  WB and I regular this shop whenever the home kitchen is closed for the day :p  We love their steamed eggs dish 'Sum Wong Tan' consists of three types of eggs - salted duck egg, century egg and egg and their Thai Style Chicken and also their ' Kow Yok'  - alternate slices of yam and pork belly steamed with red beancurd. Not only we had a great fellowship together, we had a great meal too :)  Poh San restaurant is a non air con place and thus the food prices are quite reasonable.  WB and I love this place as their dishes are quite home cooked :)  I will just showcase a few of their signature dishes for today.  The other two dishes I have left out coz I was busy chatting with my aunt and forgotten to snap the simple stir fry veggies :p

'Sum Wong Tan ' - their famous steamed egg dish
consisting of 3 types of egg - slated duck egg, century egg and chicken egg
smooth texture

'Kow Yok ' - alternate slices of yam and pork belly steamed with red beancurd

their signature tofu dish - deep fried and topped with minced meat

Enjoy !

Steamed Red Snapper With Ginger Garlic Rice Vinegar Sauce

Bought a piece of red snapper fillet from Jusco a few days ago.  Ran out of idea how to cook this piece of fish steak :p, then suddenly I remembered the new cookbook - Madam Choong's Nostalgic Recipes that I bought a month ago , has this very appetizing looking steamed fish recipe with lots and lots of ginger and garlic and chillies.  I flipped to the page and jotted down the ingredients and I had this a amazingly delicious steamed fish set on the dining table.  The steamed fish smells good ! A keeper for sure. It is so freaking healthy that I want to have this everyday if possible...that is how crazily in love I am with this dish.  The fish is fresh and the fragrant from the mixture of chopped ginger and garlic and hot chillies really whets my appetite. Lip-smacking good !

this piece of  red snapper costs RM11.00

awesome toppings !

Stir Fry Fu Gui Cai With Sea Salt And Garlic

I have heard so much of this China ' fu gui cai' on facebook and out of curiosity, I bought some back from Tesco during the CNY period.  It was a bit pricey but seeing that it is quite light in weight, I decided to spend some money on it so that I could taste the real thing instead of imagining how this veggie would taste like :p  

Some recommended stir fry with garlic and some stir fry with razor clams.  I prefer to stir fry with just salt and garlic and it turned out delicious.  It tasted like Bok Choy but the stem are more crunchy and sweet.  Love it !  It satisfied my curiosity and if not for the price, I would love to it to my daily diet  :)  Simple dish and I am easily satisfied :p

this is how fu gui cai looks like before cooking

after cooking it still looks crisps and fresh :)
just stir fry with garlic and sea salt

love the crunchy stem and sweet leaves
