Signature Smoked Black Cod 煙燻黑鱈魚 42: This dish plays with all your senses. It arrives in a glass dome filled with Chrysanthemum smoke.

Mott’s Amber 杞子桂花糕 12: This traditional Chinese gelatin pudding with Osmanthus flower with Wolfberry is one of my all time favourite desserts. I love the subtle sweetness and the fragrance of the blossom. Mott’s rendition is done right without the sourness of goji berries and the bitterness that often lingers from Osmanthus.

At the end of your meal, make sure to catch the whisky cart for an aperitif. Also on rotation is the Gin and Tonic cart. And during lunch, also watch for the Mimoso cart with freshly squeezed orange juice and basil leaves.

 

I highly recommend making a reservations at Mott 32 to experience the celebration of Hong Kong culture and cuisine.

Ford Fusion 2017 Sai Woo Vancouver Dine Out Chinatwon Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Ford Canada graciously took us out with their brand new Ford Fusion 2017. What a better way to exemplify this vehicle by going to a town in Vancouver that is experiencing the combination of old traditions and new changes.

  • Old and New
  • Traditions and Modern Technique

Ford Fusion 2017 Sai Woo Vancouver Dine Out Chinatwon Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

I grew up around Chinatown (my parents would take me every weekend for grocery shopping), and often thought it was a forgotten town in Vancouver. When I walked around as a child I would see mostly senior citizens reside in this area. The buildings were historic, but mostly abandoned.

As I paid more attention to the culinary scene of Vancouver, I realized a revolution was happening in Chinatown. New and talented chefs would seek store fronts in these spaces of Chinatown that has been vacant for many years.

Sai Woo at 158 East Pender Street popped up on my radar before it was opened. This restaurant paid homage to Sai Woo Chop Suey, which opened in 1925. Inside you see a complete renovation while displaying keepsake of heydays. Falken Reynolds balance designed between old and the new, with symbolic allusions throughout the two-level, 188 seat restaurant and bar.

Ma Lan Tou Recipe | Kalimeris Indica Tofu Salad 馬蘭頭

Ma Lan Tou Recipe | Kalimeris Indica Tofu Salad 馬蘭頭

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle
Ma Lan Tou is a simple and refreshing cold appetizer that is very easy to make. It is usually served with a selection of small plates beginning any Shanghainese feast. For one, I like that it takes only 5 to 6 ingredients. It goes wonderfully with rice, saucy dishes and has a fragrant but mild flavor.

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle
Ma Lan Tou (MLT) is also known as Kalimeris Indica (Indian Aster). It is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant (similar to a daisy or chrysanthemum) and grows mainly in China, Korea and Japan. It is said that the plant is used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat acute inflammations, high blood pressure and is also also effective in stopping bleeding.

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Whether, it holds up to its medicinal uses I enjoy the extra serving of vegetables and dried bean curd.
In Vancouver (Canada), MLT usually is packaged frozen. Rarely, do you ever see fresh leaves sold at supermarkets. Thaw and boil to remove the chillness. Run under cold water to stop the cooking. Using a colander, drain all water from the veggie and press out excess water.

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

This Ma Lan Tou recipe requires dried tofu豆腐干/豆干. If you don’t have these stocked at home, you can always use bean curd sheets (sometimes called bean curd threads). Since they come dried, you will need to soak them for at least 10 to 15 mins in hot water.
If you use Dried Tofu, simply dice finely. If you bean curd sheets, after soaked in water, ensure you press out the water. Pat dry remaining moisture. Then dice finely. The texture will be firm and a little rubbery.

Ma Lan Tou Dried Tofu Recipe Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Ma Lan Tou Recipe (Kalimeris Indica Tofu Salad) 馬蘭頭

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Ma Lan Tou
  • 3 Squares Dried Tofu (or 4 to 5 sticks dried bean curd)\
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tsp sugar
  • 0.5 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch (Optional: to wash the Ma Lan Tou)

 

Directions:

  • Wash Ma Lan Tou with cornstartch. This is optional. But I find adding cornstarch helps to draw out dirt and any muddy flavors from the plant.
  • If you are using frozen MLT, thaw and blanch in boiling water for a few minutes to remove the chillness. Rinse with cold water.
  • Drain water using a colander. Press out excess water with hands. Pat dry with paper towel. Finely dice MLT.
  • Finely chop dried tofu/ bean curd.
  • Add the finely diced MLT and dried tofu in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add salt, sugar, soy sauce and sesame oil. Toss and mix well.
  • Tightly pack into bowl or cup and invert onto a dish to serve. I usually use a rice bowl.
  • This dish can be made ahead of time and kept chilled in the refrigerator.
  • Serve 4 (or serves barely 2 if you have me at your table)! I can this all to myself!

Chuen Kee Seafood is listed in the Michelin Guide. However it is not starred.

How It Works

The feeling choosing my seafood at the tank is sort of like first love. My heart beats fast and I don’t know if I’m making the right decision. I mean there are just so many to choose from! And frankly, I want them all. There is a wide range of ordinary seafood to exquisite varieties. However, it is always the fresh!

  1. Choose your seafoods
  2. Pay by the weight plus cooking charge per person.
  3. Tell them how you would like to them cooked
    • steamed
    • blanched
    • deep fried
    • sauteed
  4. Wait at your table and the food will be brought to you

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

There are so many tanks and exhibits it feels like a private aquarium.

The decor of the restaurant is only average despite its attempt at grandeur. There is a lot of gold, emperor yellow and a lot of low lit. Not particularly catered for photos. Chuen Kee also has their prize processions of shark fin on display.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Mantis Shrimp: Deep fried with salt and pepper and some paprika. This was one of the best we’ve tasted. The meat is sweet, tender yet solid with a good bounce. The lower legs are crispy enough to eat. And if you watch this video, you’ll understand how their meat is so muscular.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Scallops: a dozen large size scallops steamed with garlic, scallions and vermicelli noodles. Deliciously sweet and perfectly balanced with a light but savory sauce.

Clams: A light wine based broth with clams to accentuate the freshness of the juicy clams.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Grouper Fish: None other way to enjoy the freshness of grouper than to steam it. The meat is ever so tender yet firm with a flakey flesh. Always a treat and you bet this be on the table of any Chinese festivities, wedding or birthday banquet.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Razor Clams: Razor clams can become rubbery in texture if it is over cooked. It should take only 4-5 minutes at most and will require a skillful chef to monitor its opacity. Add the black bean sauce, garlic, chilies and touch of hoisin sauce for sweetness. These are heavenly.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Kai Lan Chinese Broccoli: Add a side of vegetables to balance the meal out. I never say no to fresh veggies! Sautéed with garlic.

 

Chuen Kee Seafood Restaurant Hong Kong Sai Kung MICHELIN Guide 2016 Instanomss Nomss Delicious Food Photography Healthy Recipes Travel Beauty Lifestyle Canada

Chicken: Chicken meat always tastes more like chicken in Asia for whatever reason. The meat is tender, juicy and moist. The skin not so fatty nor greasy. Chinese poached chicken with ginger scallion oil. The scallion oil makes a great friend with a bowl of rice jasmine rice!

Seriously I can’t wait to go back. If you never had seafood in Hong Kong, you are missing out my friend! Skip the menu items and go straight to the tank to pick your own seafood. You can not go wrong!
