Rare Food

Report animal abuse !? Erh....bird abuse !? Poor chicken ! Imagine a can of beer thrusting into or through the rear....

Anyone seen this in Malaysia ? Well, I seen and heard of Beer Can Chicken in the states but rarely seen this in any of the restaurant here. Please let me know if you have seen this anywhere...

The last I had this was in a restaurant in Sunway Damansara...ad hog, the chef was so kind to prepare the Beer Can Chicken for us. It was excellent and I just want to try elsewhere to have a comparison.

The beer aroma, taste, texture....prefect ! For the info. the food was found in ad hog. You might want to check out ad hog at Google. They serve exotic food !

Wild Boar Curry

Couple of days ago one of my friend just threw me a piece of meat and....asked me what and how I want it to be ??!! Hmm....looks like a piece of nice chunk of meat..to me !

Huh !...juicy !...not much fat !....WILD BOAR ! where the h@+#...they got it !? 

Erh...dunno and don't want to know ! What am I going to do with it ?...Well, wild boar can be tough and has a strong smell if you do it the wrong way. The safest way to do the wild boar is the wild boar way !...Braised it ?!!...Stewed ?!! or....Curry ?!!

Ok...curry will be safer i guess...

Preparation: Clean the wild boar, rub the meat with corn starch and blanched it. That way the meat will not be tough ! Boiled some potatoes in salted water and set aside.

Cooking: Heat up the wok, sauteed the spice ingredients for 20-30 minutes in low heat. Add in the wild boar meat, stirred fry for 10 minutes. Pour in the water just to cover all the ingredients and let it cook for another 10 minutes. Simmer for 1/2 hour or till the meat is soft and tender.

Throw in the potatoes and let it simmer for 30 minutes, add in the coconut milk and let it cook for another 10 minutes. Pour in 3 tbsp of lime juice to have some sourness taste in it and it's done !

How it looks like....here you go !

Prefecto ! Goes well with hot steamed rice or bread !
