My dad is a food lover. As such, when food is concern, he can be extremely fussy. Dad hardly eats outside. He loves to cook his own food.
Even now, we dare not take him to a restaurant without us testing the food first. I recalled taking him out to Victoria Station for his birthday couple of years ago, where he complained about his not so nice lobster on our way home right after the dinner.
My house is just 20 minutes away from my parent’s house. The beauty is, whenever dad cooks extra, he would call me up at the office and ask me to drop by his house after work and pickup the dish that he had cooked.
Among the dishes are:
Sambal petai & ikan bilis. My all time favorite. Esp when the skin is still intact. Oh my god…it’s so crunchy!
Yam basket with stir fry mix vege and chicken. I don’t need rice when I eat this dish. The yam itself is already filling.
Sayur pucuk manis and keledek masak lemak + sambal kentang & ikan bilis + udang goreng kunyit. A truly kampung style cuisine.
Sambal petai. The petai is so gemuk and gebu..hahhahahaha…
Pengat durian with pulut. My dad would cook this when he knows I am fasting on that day.
Another dessert – yam cake? Can’t remember what it’s called. But I always refer it as yam cake.
Salmon head asam pedas with kobis jeruk...
Another favorite of mine – wantan noodles.
I managed to capture these pics when I came over to dad’s house on last Monday. Dad called earlier that day asking me if I am fasting. When I said yes, he asked me to have iftar at his house. He said he’ll be cooking the Cantonese style wantan noodles.

The following pic got nothing to do with my dad’s dishes. It’s my junior masterchef in the making during her baking class.
Cha Cha begged me to join the baking class at Bake Me Wonders @ Empire. I hesitated, but in the end, I gave in, cos at least, she’ll be messing up someone’s kitchen instead of mine…hahhahaa.
The outcome – Peanut butter chocolate truffles. Yummylicious!
