What I Ate Today

Posted by : foongpc | Sunday, March 1, 2009 | Published in


I know, I know. This is such a lame title for this post.

Anyway, who cares what I ate today, right? But I just wanted to share some of the delicious food I happened to eat today. Actually they are more like snacks than real solid food.

Do you like egg tarts? My brother bought these yummy egg tarts from Tong Kee. They were so delicious! Soft and smooth is how I describe them!

Besides egg tarts, he also bought "siew pao" from Tong Kee. These were really nice especially when they were still piping hot! I like these but not as much as the egg tarts!

What do you call this kueh? I forgot what it's called, but I love it! Bought it from the Section 17 PJ market.

A friend bought me this jellies from Q-Jelly in 1Utama. It looks so colourful, right? That's the problem - I was a little concerned with the colouring. I just took one and left the remaining ones uneaten.

Later in the night, I had this Hokkien fried noodles for dinner. Totally oily and unhealthy, but absolutely tasty!

After all these unhealthy food, what better food to help me detoxify than a bowl of gui ling gao from Koong Woh Tong?

    i like tong kee egg tarts but i don't know why their tarts have very strong smell... i suspect their oil has been re-used too many times.

    That jelly sure looked artificial so glad you took only one.

    The peanut pancake is my favourite too plus the rest of the others..indulged once in a while it is ok :D

    My family loves egg tarts and we always get them when we go eat Dimsum. Are the siew pao the same as moon cakes?

    That kueh which you forgot the name, I believe we call it "mijiam kueh" in Teochew (aiya JB got a lot of Teochew lol) or "apam" in Malay.

    I so love the guiling gao. <3

    annant, sorry for that! Haha!

    lina, the jelly is not nice, but I liked their mooncake jelly which I tried last year during the Mooncake Festival. Anyway, the colouring is scary, better not eat them!

    Actually, those were not the only food I ate - they were more like snacks that I ate between my lunch and dinner! So talking about calories, that's why I had to go to the gym today! Haha!

  27. foongpc said...

    mei teng, sorry about that and I don't know whether it's good or bad that you won't be able to find those food at those hours! haha!

    renaye, I didn't notice any strong smell? I hope they did not re-use the oil cos it's unhealthy : (

    day-dreamer, again sorry for making you hungry! : )

    lisalicious, yes so yummy these food! : )

    tekkaus, wow! So long didn't drop by! So busy meh? Yeah, the siew pao is delicious!! : )

    suituapui, great minds do indeed think alike. Haha! The Hokkien mee looks like worms but it's very delicious worms. LOL!

  29. foongpc said...

    leo, yes those colouring really puts me off! : ( You are staying away from eggs? Why?

    khengsiong, I just learnt that it's called "kam tan kou" in Cantonese. You call it "tai kau min" - is that in Cantonese too? How come sound so different? Btw, how do you make your own gui ling gao?

    March 2, 2009 at 9:47 PM
  30. foongpc said...

    nic, these food are just snacks for me which I ate in between my main meals. Haha! Such a big eater me! : )

    Chicken rice for both lunch and dinner? Wow! Are you a big fan of chicken rice? I normally can't eat the same thing for both lunch and dinner. Need variety : )

    March 2, 2009 at 9:49 PM
  31. foongpc said...

    monica, yeah they are so delicious especially when eaten hot! : )

    rad, you should try the egg tarts, though not all egg tarts are equal. Tong Kee is one of the best but I think you won't be able to find it in Indonesia!

    shionge, yes the jelly looks artificial and the colouring really puts me off! The peanut pancake is absolutely delicious. I guess once in a while is OK : )

    March 2, 2009 at 9:53 PM
  32. foongpc said...

    levian, good choice! The egg tarts and siew pao are really good! : )

    babette, oh you love egg tarts and dim sum too? Cool! Those siew pao is not the same as mooncakes. The siew pao are like dumplings but instead of steamed, they are baked, and they usually have pork fillings inside. You can check out the recipe here : )

    March 2, 2009 at 10:03 PM
  33. foongpc said...

    quachee, yes! I mixed the noodles and beehoon together cos I like it that way! Haha!

    angie tan, yes abolutely love Tong Kee tarts. Canton-i's egg tarts are good too! Have you tried?

    JL, is that correct? I thought apam is different type of kueh? I think in Cantonese, this kueh is called "kam tan kou" but khengsiong called it differently, and you also gave a different name - now I'm totally confused!

    March 2, 2009 at 10:11 PM
  34. foongpc said...

    nick phillips, sorry about that! Hope you had a good lunch today! Hehe

    jam, they are indeed very delicious! Oh, Jalan Alor is a food haven! You went to the right place for food! : )

    SK, haha! Since you are hungry and cannot go anywhere to get them, just pretend you are enjoying them in front of your computer lah : )

  35. foongpc said...

    molly, what makes you think I'm on a diet? I have never been on a diet and never will! Haha!

    One reason is, I'm not fat enough to warrant any form of dieting.

    Second reason is, I don't believe in depriving myself! Haha!

    Third reason is, I like to exercise, so if I eat more, I just exercise more to keep the balance in check. Hehe!

    Btw, those food I mentioned were just snacks for the day in between my main meals. Now maybe I should seriously consider cutting down. LOL!

    eastcoastlife, yes cannot eat too much as we get older and the metabolism slows down. So just eat a bit and exercise! : )

    george, well they did! It looked nice, but I dared not eat too much due to the artificial colouring! : )

    michi, yes it's that good! Go try it now! : )

    JL, is 'apam' and 'apam balik' the same thing? What about those kueh I saw which is crunchy and filled with santan? Is that apam balik too?
