Look Mom! I’m on Rasa Malaysia! (with KL Hokkien Mee)

January 23, 2010

Ok I doubt my Mom would actually know what I was on about but I certainly do! Rasa Malaysia is an amazing food blog and her plethora of aunthentic Malaysian recipes are a lifesaver for many homesick Malaysian expats. And guess what? I just guest blogged on it!

Huh? Really?

Now I’d be the first to admit that I’m still very much a beginner when it comes to Malaysian cooking so when Bee invited me to guest post a beloved hometown Malaysian recipe on Rasa Malaysia, I admit I was shocked, scared (what to cook?!) but all in all, thrilled.


Seeing as I’m from Kuala Lumpur, there’s only one dish to do – KL Hokkien Mee. Think beautiful braised noodles in a thick, dark, pork-alicious sauce and you’ll realise why I crave this dish constantly.

For the recipe, check out my guest post on Rasa Malaysia.

Finally, a huge thanks to Bee for the opportunity!

Crunchy chu yau cha

I saw that recipe on Rasa Malaysia before I discovered you here via Daring Bakers I had it bookmarked to try, so I'm guessing I am just destined to subscribe to this fabulous and beautiful blog you have here :)
Well done on the guest post!

This looks like any authentic KL fried hokkien noodle and you even add in the crispy lard pieces (I usually go for this first). Delicious.
