Location : Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
2 straight days of food tasting with 2 different groups at Thank Food Vegetarian Restaurant. Once again with the Chinese New Year round the corner, Chef Onn (more than 25 years in the business) invited Mei Er and I for our honest opinion of his new dishes for the new year dinner. I was given the privilege to invite friends for Day 1. I must apologise to my friends Jay, Chris, Seth & Henry who could not make it due to the short notice given to me and hence to them. Never mind guys, always another time.
Day 2 together with the press guys was special because it was the first time Chef Onn created this RM328 dish fit for a vegetarian King! Name of this royal dish – ‘Pen Cai’ or ‘Pot Dish’ (盆菜) with 18 ingredients cooked separately in different styles and arranged in multi layers in a giant bowl. The deeper you go the better it gets. My other chef friend Barry said it was a popular traditional dish of the Hakka dialect. We were all bloated & impressed. The durian puffs were awesome too.
Happy New Year to all our Chinese friends
