Thanks to a friend that invited me to the food tasting session many many moons ago but I didn’t blog about it. We tasted the Szechuan cuisines prepared by none other than the friendly and energetic Szechuan ladies based in Kuching. By the way, I don’t know the dishes’ names, I asked that time but didn’t pen it down and now I cannot remember much, even the tastes too. One thing for sure, we feast! Nice!
Just to share the photos with you… If you know the names, do share with me 🙂
As you all know, Szechuan cuisines are known to be very spicy. However, they didn’t dare to make it too spicy as they’re afraid that we couldn’t stand the spiciness. It turned out that we told them that it’s not spicy enough! ;p Can add more chili hahaha…
Left: The Szechuan style cucumber pickles. It’s refreshing. Even though you see those chilies on top, if you are sane enough then don’t go eat the chilies, it’s meant to boost the flavour only unless you can stand eating the chilies only -.-” I definitely will not do that.
Right: There’s quite a number of chicken dishes, this is one of them.
Left: Braised chicken (or is it duck?) with tofu and eggs. It was too salty for our Malaysian tongue but according to them, that’s how they usually make this dish.
Right: Black fungus dish. Don’t remember much but I like the crunchiness of the black fungus.
Left: Szechuan dessert. I forgot the name. There’s egg, glutinous rice dumpling, and snow fungus in the sweet soup. The white thing peeking out from the soup is egg white. It can be served hot or cold.
Right: Lao Ya Tang(è€é¸æ±¤), we were a bit shocked when we heard the name. We thought it was “laoya tang” (literally translate, lousy soup in Hokkien). We were like did-I-hear-laoya and repeating the name to each other in disbelief until the niece of the ladies had to translate the word “Lao Ya” to English, it means old duck! It’s not lousy as we had thought earlier. *LOL* Was told that they really used old duck for this soup but they couldn’t find old duck here, so just use the common duck they found in the market.
