Food notes: aglio olio + fried bihun + Siu Siu

Aglio olio with butter and oyster sauce

If you’re like me: unmarried + not living with a significant other + not living with parents + can buy own meals, thinking of what and where to eat can be a major #firstworldproblem.

That was how the aglio olio with butter and oyster sauce idea came about. I really have no other explanations.

It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t too good. The smell was fragrant and thinly sliced sauteed garlic is always a winner in my books. As you can see, it’s a bit too wet. Reason: I didn’t want to thicken the sauce with water leftover from boiling pasta (‘cos I added a lot of salt in it). Instead of normal flour, I used corn flour. I’ve no idea why. But you bet I won’t be replicating this.

There, I did it so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.

NoobCook’s Fried Bihun with Stewed Pork

I love fried bihun. I tried frying bihun. It sucked. I tried again. It rocked. Kinda. I went a bit crazy with the amount of water to put in. It turned out a bit wet, but still good to eat. Not bad for a second attempt using a new recipe, eh? I thought so too.

Siu Siu Restaurant @ Robson Heights

I forgot why but we had a family dinner the other day. Oh that’s right, cos we are family nananana I got all my sisters with me nanananana /end lame

One of the dishes we had was the curry prawns and fried buns. Could have been friggin’ A if the prawns weren’t overcooked. The curry was fantastic though and went down very well with the fried buns. We ordered and devoured a second plate of buns #fatasses

Siu Siu, Robson Heights - curry prawns with fried buns

We also had fish. This fish. It was supposed to be patin but it had whiskers like catfish. By the way, did you know that patin in English is “iridescent shark”? It’s true, I found it on Wikipedia.

Siu Siu, Robson Heights - expensive fish

It also cost RM 108. What the fuck.



  1. that curry looks awesome.

  2. the curry was pretty awesome. esp when makan together with the buns

  3. if you’re feeling lazy.. toss your pasta in some olive oil, and one of those tinned mackerel in black pepper sauce (ayam brand). instant win also. 😀

  4. comfort food of fried mihun. i cook that for my all day eat at home meal. to overcome the either too wet or too dry, i normally fry the mihun separately from the meat and vegie. Then when its time to eat, I will “pour” the meat and vegie with the necessary gravy right on top of the mihun:D

    How heavy was the patin? You guys must have ordered a fairly decent size for that price.

  5. the butter and oyster sauce shd thicken the sauce.

    For the beehoon – do add the soy sauce, dark soy + water. Dnt worry if too much, just braised the beehoon and it will be reduced.

  6. patin – basa fish
    jerung patin – iridescent shark

  7. emma: thanks! learned something new 🙂
