Last Thursday, Momo and I joined a few other foodie friends (Camemberu, AromaCookery, TheHungryCow) for the Makansutra monthly makan session. It’s the first time for Momo and Keropokman. You wanna join in the makan? Head to www.makansutra.com forum to read more and sign up!
Like this blog, the makansutra foodies meet up is not only about food, it’s about eating with friends that makes eating so enjoyable! We sure had a really good time eating and chatting!
Here’s the food that we enjoyed while we were chatting and laughing the whole night away. We started with Peking Duck.
A whole plate of skin and skin. Pastry skin with duck skin. What a delightful combination.
The cucumber strip, spring onions and hoisin sauce on the skin + skin. Want some?
The next dish served was the Deep Fried Seafood Roll in Salad.
One bite and you get nice creamy seafood in salad sauce oozing out.
It’s like having a Chinese Wedding dinner! Courses after courses!
But that gave us time to chat with others on the table.
Next, Braised Sharks Fin Sichuan Style. It’s like eating Sichuan Hot and Spicy soup with some fins.
We got to know more anti shark eating people on the table. I am surround by more anti-sharks eating friends now.
This is deep fried soft shell crabs with Oats.
Usually you get cereal, for a change they use oats here.
The crab sure was ‘juicy’. LOL…. It lubricates your throat very well.
OK OK, I want to say it’s oily. It’s oily but it’s nice.
First we had skin + skin. Now this dish is asparagus + asparagus. It’s Stir Fried Sea Asparagus & Asparagus in Black Pepper Sauce. First time I tried sea asparagus.
Initially I thought sea asparagus are like sea cucumbers that grow in the sea. But I just found out they are plants that grows on salt marshes or mangroves!
Deep Fried Soon Hock with Special Sauce.
Crispy fish always taste good to me. Now, what’s the special sauce?
Hey, the next dish has Keropok!
Deep Fried Chicken with Coffee and sliced almond.
The coffee seems to be potent! Some friends told me they can’t sleep that night because of the coffee!
It left some bitter aftertaste though for me though. I am not a coffee drinker.
The duck meat from the first dish is transformed into this. Shredded Duck Meat with Egg Noodles.
The 9th and last dish was Custard Bun with Sesame Paste.
The buns came nice and warm.
Peeling it reveals sesame paste with salted egg yolks custard.
I quite like it. hehe..
Would like to thank the Makansutra monthly Makan organisers for organising this.
They don’t make money out of this. It’s purely for fun that they are doing this. Thanks!
