Fusion cuisine



























Attended a Chinese couple's wedding dinner at a bungalow converted restaurant called Passion Road at Jln Yap Kwan Seng, Kuala Lumpur.

I presumed it was a Chinese dinner. Quite disappointed, it served "Asia Flavored" food, especially Nyonya food.

For starter, it is Fish soup with white fungus and papaya.....

And the dessert: Fried banana with jack-fruit and syrup...

For the young and trendy, it is called fusion cuisine, for the uninitiated uncle like me, it is simply Lang boh Tee lang, gui boh tee gui (Neither human nor ghost).

From these two items, you can imaging how was the dinner...!

Plates of a few aunties were seen with unfinished pineapple fried rice...

今晚参加了一对华人夫妇的结婚宴会,地点是吉隆坡一间独立洋房改装的餐馆。

我以为是中餐,但却不然,而是“亚洲风味”的菜肴,特别是娘惹式。

开胃菜是鱼汤(两小片扎鱼肉),里面有白木耳和一块木瓜。。。

甜品(甜菜)是炸香蕉掺菠萝加糖浆。。。

对年轻及潮流者而言,这是『多国籍混杂料理』(Fusion cuisine),对我这种无知及不会欣赏的安哥来说,这是“人不像人,鬼不像鬼”。。

整个宴会,从这两道菜,可想而知了!

同桌的几位安蒂盘子里,剩下好多的黄梨炒饭。。。

The place is not suitable to hold traditional Chinese dinner...but for young people, style and trendy are important.

I walloped more rice to fill my stomach.

And they served Lemon grass tea...eyak!! serai drink!! all the aunties "beh tahan".
