Siomay Bandung: Off to KL!


Guys, I hate goodbyes, and I've said it this morning, tearfully, to my gas stove, wok, muffin tray, oven and my beloved whisk....I'm off to Kuala Lumpur for work...and will be back in about a week. It might be short but I'm gonna miss them (Aiya! I am gonna miss you guys too lah, SC & blogging pals ^_^)

I hope this time I get to see more than my hotel room, meeting room and the conference hall (sob sob). While I am away, here's something to munch on:

Remember the
trio wontons I made previously? Here's another way to have them, the Indonesian way :)

"Siomay Bandung"

Why the quotation marks? Because it could not be further than authentic. Maybe I should have called it steamed wontons in peanut sauce instead? Hehe

To make the wontons, check out my previous post
Steam the wontons until the meat is cooked through, drizzle with peanut sauce, kecap manis, chilli sauce, lime juice, fried shallot and freshly chopped corriander. The fish paste filled wontons taste closer to the original siomay bandung, however, the pork and shrimp filled ones are yummy too!

I used gado-gado ready made peanut sauce, and sometimes I use pecel ready made peanut sauce. If those aren't available, you can use ready made satay sauce...or make your own (I'll find a good recipe for you guys later ^_^)

KL, ready or not, here I come to eat my ass off!

Rita, you're so lucky. KL/Msia is having food galore now for the ramadhan. Depending on which hotel you're staying at, the hotels would have buffet all day long from breakfast to supper! Dont forget to check out the pasar ramadhan. ;)
