My Valentine’s All-Day Breakfast

“Romantic coffee pancakes with smoked salmon, cheesy scrambled egg & flowers.”

Valentine’s Day is always romantic. Though we hope that everyday is just as great as the festive day itself, but who doesn’t wish it to be a little more special and memorable, and simply to mark the day.

If cooking dinner is not for you, you want to be brought to romantic candle-lit dinner, don’t you? Still, wish to do something for your loved one, how about a fanciful breakfast yo kick start your romantic day?

Ee Mee Dry (干捞伊面)

“It’s not stir-fried noodle, it’s noodle dry where you mix the sides and sauce into blanched noodles.”

Making the Ee Mee its dry way is just to prevent the noodle from getting too soggy and greasy. I personally thought the dish taste more subtly, too. It wasn’t overly saltish. Loved it so much.

And of course, for spicy food lover, bring on the sambal chili! Yes, just add it in.

Serves 2-3
Ingredients
120g of dried Ee Mee (Yee Mien, Cantonese egg noodle, 伊面), soaked in hot water
1/4 of cabbage, diced
3-4 stalks of Kai Lan (or Chye Sim), chopped
100g of chicken, diced
2-3 pcs of crab sticks, diced
6-8 pcs of prawn, shelled

Bird Nest Pineapple Cakes (燕窝黄梨酥)

“Bird nest incorporated into pineapple paste filling, just feeling luscious this Lunar festival.”

Making these into cake blocks in order to stuff in more bird nest into its pineapple filling. The chunks of pineapple cake would look more generous this way.

Same pineapple filling recipe I had previously, or even store-bought readymade kind of pineapple paste will do the job. Only the crust was made with slight difference this time.

Festive Dish: Steamed Pork Belly with Taro Pineapple & White Radish (年菜: 好意头(芋头)旺来扣肉)

“It’s not your ordinary Kou Rou (steamed pork belly) dish.”

I have my conventional recipe for Kou Rou dish. And here, I was to bring my pork Belly dish to a new level, with the necessary festive twist. Simply to prepare it as one of our Chinese Lunar New Year dishes!

I would like to consider this an entirely different pork belly dish. Not only the side ingredients were adapted for auspicious purpose, the recipe was just different. Cai po, Miso paste, mirin, etc were used here.. Weird? It turned out so well, in fact!
