Of Brilliant Yam Puffs, & Golden Retriever ...

Sigh .......... seldom do I start my post with a heave of relief, and from sheer fatigue. But I've all the reasons in the world to be, for this past 2 days, I've drove all the way to Gerik, and then Pengkalan Hulu (Pengkalan WHAT? hehe =P), then back again few hours ago. But more on that in later posts, k?

Yummylicious Wu Kok (Yam Puffs) @ RM1.10 each

For now, I'll just share a simple snack that I've had the privilege to relish, courtesy of my aunt who visits the Bercham morning market often. My aunts are food connoiseurs in their own rights, as you might have noticed in my older post on Choy Kee's egg tarts where another aunt of mine buys them and drops them at my doorsteps on Saturday morning, ala Santa Claus style. LOL.

Anyway, these babies (the yam puffs/wu kok, not my aunts) are delicious especially when served hot, the outer layers of yam crispy and full of yam-my flavours, while the solid fillings of green peas, char siew etc delightfully moist, and scrumptious. Better than most of the dim sum outlets, EVEN Foh San's. Really.

Location : Bercham morning market. One of the stalls I guess. Sorry, never bother to ask for directions, but will be glad to do so if anyone is interested to get their hands on them.

On a side note, let's side track and see what my Golden Retriever is currently up to ..... =P

Eeeeee ..................


CHAK !!!!!

Oh, hide-and-seek? But not from a hiding position. She's grown too big and lazy to be running around, like she used to. Muahaha ..... (whoops, I guess she's taken a resemblance to her owner, probably? =O )

From the look of the yam puff i can already tell how good it must have tasted.

U should try out the best Bercham Pau in town. Its Big pau is a sell out. its Cahr Siew pau oooozes gravy when bite. Its puff is also sell out...it operates at the restaurant opposite one poliklinik or further away from K10 clayport. Day u have Ritz economy rice. Try also the Hulk size own made Tauhu at the noodle stall. My fellow coleague as far as Pasir Puteh or 1st gdn will drive all teh way to buy in BULK. No kidding..try them out & gave review.
I like my Yampuff with rich innings.

I have one Golden Retriever at home too... He's very active, and naughty, and also very pampaered by his mother ~ my sister-in-law. He only listens to my sister-in-law... also very manja towards her too. He loves to play,... everything la...

the egg tarts from the morning market of Simee are awesome too!

team bsg said...

she does look a little bit wee bored, maybe its time to re-action her in your next connoisseuring outing

J2Kfm said...

yammylicious : yeah, she is. but wait til you get near her, :) VERY human-friendly!

NKOTB : probably Golden Retrievers are born playful? when she was small, and even nowadays, she can be hyperactive. complete nuisance at times, but a dear at others.

kampungboycitygal : yeah, the egg tarts are my fav frm Ipoh as of now.

team bsg : hehe, she ain't bored. we're glad she';s willing to sit still for a shot!

My ex-boss Golden Retriever used to dig hole with his nose. Very playful, lazy and it loves children very much.

sc said...

J2Kfm said...
