Seaweed Vegetable Soba Noodle Soup served with Salted Minced Meat

27 Apr

Wondering what’s on Winnie’s Dinner Menu tonight?

Well, we are eating noodle soup and since my hubby loves seaweed soup, I had prepared…a seaweed based noodle soup.

Here’s the combination, my recipes are as below:

Stir-fry Salted Vegetable with Minced Meat


2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 shallots, sliced
1 cup minced meat
1 tbsp preserved salted radish (choi po)
1 tbsp china salted vegetables


1. Preheat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil with medium fire, add in garlic and shallot. Stir till it turns golden, add in salted vegetables. Mixed in some pepper into the minced meat, add the meat into the other mixture. Stir fry till fragrant. Set aside.

Seaweed Vegetables Soba Noodle Soup
(Serves 2 persons)

Soup ingredients:

2 carrots, sliced and cut into flower shapes
1 fish cake, sliced
2 stalks organic leeks, sliced
2 organic beancurd, pan-fried and cut into cubes
3 tbsp dry seaweed, wash and rinsed
1 pack enoki mushroom, clean and boiled
Salt and pepper to taste


1. Use the same pot which you cooks the minced meat, add in leeks, fish cake and follow by some carrot. Stir fry for 2 minutes then add in 2 bowl of water. Boil for 10-15 minutes.
2. Pan fried the beancurd and cut it into cubes.
3. Boil enoki mushroom into a hot boiling water to cook for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool off.

I have chosen, Zaru Soba Noodles for this combination. For two servings, I cooked 3 sticks of soba noodle.

How do you prepare some sumptuous tangling Soba Noodle?
Well, here’s the secret…
1. First, boil a pot of water. Once water is boiled, add in Soba noodle to cook for 15 minutes.
2. Make sure the noodle is fully submerged in boiling water to allow even cooking.
3. Once the noodle is cooked, place the noodle into cold water to settled it.

Winnie’s tips to a perfectly cooked bowl of noodles:
1. To ensure thorough cooking, take a sampler string of the noodle and sliced into half to see if there’s still any presence of uncooked flour in it’s core. If you still see some white colored core it means that the noodles need to be boil a little longer. Otherwise, congrats, your noodles are now cooked.
2. Placed the cooked noodle into cold water to stop noodles from cooking and it allow your noodle to settle.

At last, garnishing the soba noodle and other vegetables is fun. I like to organize it in an appetizing way, for example. Beancurd one side, seaweed, enoki mushroom, carrots and leeks, minced meat placed it in different area. Finally, scoop the soup into the bowl of noodle and ready to be served. Yummy.. The combination is perfect, soup is plain and minced meat is salty. Enjoy!

Lala Chong Seafood Restaurant, Kg. Sg. Kayu Ara (PJ)

1 Nov

Last Friday, my colleagues and I went to try out another seafood outlet, namely, Lala Chong Seafood Restaurant in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara near Damansara Utama. Rumor has it, that the food at this outlet is much nicer than the other one which is located near NZX, Ara Damansara. Also to note, this seafood outlet is actually pork-free, so everyone would be able to enjoy it.

There were 14 of us, and surprisingly we were all fitted in the same BIG table. By the way, thanks to my colleague, Kenny, below are the pictures of the sumptuous seafood they offer. We ordered a feast of 10 dishes, along with 14 plates of rice, not forgetting 2 teapots of Chinese tea, which all in all costs us a grand total bill of RM360.
