Hong Kong Mak Mun Kee wonton noodles

Mak Mun Kee Noodle House – probably my favourite restaurant in Hong Kong. Discovered the place in 2007, visited twice again during the recent trip.

Mak Mun Kee is famous for its wonton noodles and pig trotters. Its shrimp wontons are huge, fresh, with bouncy texture and great flavour. Loved the pig trotters too, which are simmered with red-fermented tofu, a Chinese speciality.

The restaurant will still be on top of my list when I visit Hong Kong next time.

Mak Mun Kee is located at 51, Parkes Street, Jordan.

Malaysia is a multi-cultural nation. We have holidays on Eid, Chinese New Year, Diwali and Christmas etc. The festivities are often beyond religious boundaries; there are parties everywhere, and people hanging out in celebratory mood.

Me and my family had a reunion dinner on Christmas night, Chinese style, at Fresh Unique Seafood 23 restaurant in Petaling Jaya…

Bulgogi beef stew

Bulgogi (lit. meat fire) stew is one of the common dishes in Korean restaurants around the world, with marinated meat slices (most often beef) cooked on a hot pan with other ingredients like veges, mushrooms and glass noodles etc.

Bulgogi beef stew in Seoul, South Korea

Had this a few times in various spots in Seoul; the photo above was taken while dining out with some hostel friends near Sinseol-dong Station. Actually you can hardly find any place which cook this badly… the marination might be a bit time consuming but it’s basically a simple dish. Goes well with rice wine too lol.

Sindang-dong, Seoul’s famous place to have Korean tteokbokki (rice-cakes in red-pepper sauce). There’s dozen of restaurants selling the Korean dish at one particular street; we dined at the Mabongnim Halmeoni Tteokbokki restaurant (in February) which is one of the earliest to open its biz in the area in 1953.
