Another meal at my favourite restaurant, Kuan Yin Chai
Kuan Yin is and still is my favorite vegetarian restaurant in Malaysia. I feel very much at home when dining at this eatery as I always felt relaxed and contented after each meal as I had never experienced the sinking feeling that I would have a MSG-overdose.
"Suckling Pig" with Mantou I was reluctant to order this as I never liked "mock-meat" that was made from glutton but ordered it anyway since my guest at the table was very interested to try it. I must say, though, the "Suckling Pig" at Kuan Yin is one of the best I've tried so far. It was "barbecued" to perfection and its crisp honey outer complimented the Mantous very well.
Enoki Mushroom Tempura Salad This is a very refreshing dish, and the fresh and raw salad platter went really well with the tempura enoki mushrooms.
Steamed Yam with Ham The chef at Kuan Yin is so super duper talented! I absolutely love this dish as the chewy ham slices adds the extra oomph to the steamed yam.
Kangkung Belacan Another favorite of mine. Somehow, everything at Kuan Yin fits my taste and needs. Never too oily, never too salty, never too spicy, never too bland, just like this simple yet hard to make dish. I tried making my own with the vegetarian "belacan" I bought from Yolek, a vegetarian mart in OUG, but failed miserably as I never managed to control the 'wetness' of the belacan.
