Cheras XXXL Steamed Bun @ Ong Kee Yap Chee May

Have you ever heard of an XXXXL size Chinese steamed bun or bao?

If you live in Klang Valley, I bet you have heard of Cheras. Little that I know that Cheras offers an incredible super size steamed bun. Until one day, an old friend brought us a specialty food from the town of Cheras.

Thank you God for blessing us with good friends. And so, Mr Ong and family drove back this piece of gigantic steamed bun for us to savor. Stuffed with plenty of sliced pork, it also featured a hard boiled egg, chicken and mushroom. The filling is almost exactly typical like the big bao that I would consider as XL. Hence, this giant steamed bun is 3 times larger. Could you imagine that? Truly an experience, at which this super size bun was more than sufficient to feed 2 adults for dinner!

Seeing is believing, don’t miss out the pictures below 😉

Gathers In Western Restaurant @ Bayan Lepas | Lamb Shank Clam Chowder

The Best Braised Lamb Shank and Clam Chowder in Town

Not many folks know this little gem despite it serves one of the best western variety in Bayan Lepas neighborhood. I was first introduced by G, when we discussed about western food in Penang. To be honest, western cuisine that is composed of fish & chips, chicken chop and grilled steak option is not my cup of tea. Personally, I perceived western dishes of this variety required minimal expertise when it comes to culinary art. You may call me naive, but there was once I told a friend that the only different in western serving is the sauce, whether you name it mushroom sauce, garlic sauce, oriental sauce or teriyaki sauce. Grilling or deep frying, I don’t need much skill to do that. In fact, today we have the luxury of deep fryer and state-of-art oven or machine to prepare that. Opsh! Perhaps I was too soon to pass a judgment.

Until I found Gathers In Restaurant that tucked away in a commercial row at Sunway Prima, adjacent to Bayan Lepas FIZ Phase 2. If you’re familiar with the main road from Bayan Baru heading to Penang International Airport, Sunway Prima is the commercial zone where EST Hotel is located. Gathers In is not visible from main road however if you could locate EST Budget Hotel, Gathers In is just a few steps away.
