Kampar Steamed Vegetable dumpling
Every one knows this man in Kampar, as he would make his round everyday on his trusty old motorbike with a speaker blasting " Ham Kok Chai........ Ham Kok Chai " on his back. If you miss him on his round, he can still be located in Fai Hoong Restaurant located the Kampar market.
This delicious dumpings is filled with sengkuang , some carrots and small dried shrimps, which would manage to bring out the sweetness of the sengkuang in it. Topped with sesame seeds and goes witha a fiery hot chilli sauce..its trully a match made in heaven !!! AT 25 sen a piece its a steal.
Its been a while since I laid my hand on this Kok Chai, thanks to my dad who brought home 25 boxes of it in his last trip to Penang ( yes he detoured into Kampar for this ). Since I already hooked up with Mikemmery and Kenny Ng for tea at Sri Neela at Taman Desa, Old Klang Road, I brought along a pack for them to savour. I tried ti quiz Mike on what I brought for them and he instantly recognize the chilli sauce !!!! Sorry Mike ,if this brought back some memories of Kampar !!!!
"Hmm , da project worth 2 billion... we half half ok ??? ".. hehe serious discussion....actually about photography and cameras !!
The night continues with a great tok-kok session with both of them bout anything under the sun from floods, to camera and music . Kenny also gave us a great mini seminar on photography and camera's !!!!
