T's Kopitiam Wollongong NSW

Pork mince stir noodles accompanied by prawns and Char Siew.  I rather found this enjoyable, good fro kids and yummy.

Roti with an egg based filling and dipping sauce.   This is not what I remember form my back packer days.

T's Kopitiam's rendition of Mee Goreng - I preferred it to be more spicy with a more tomato based gravy.

Highly recommended by me - I just love it!   It is the gravy, full of luscious tasting peanut crush, but more than that, it is the marinade of the chunky chicken skewers - with hints of lemon grass flavours over a charcoal grill.

The Nasi Lemak, but without curry, served with deep fried chicken, cucumber slices, sprinkling of peanuts and anchovies, hard boiled eggs and the Sambal condiment.    I must say the Sambal at this restaurant is worth going for  - it has  flavour, a kick on the palate and a smooth texture.

To me, this is the crowing glory of the menu - Sarawak version of the Laksa, here laden with prawns, bean sprouts, egg omelette and the all important gravy.   The gravy here is so different from the Curry Laksa you find in peninsular Malaysia   - there is more spice and less chilli.   This dish is tops in the realm of street food heaven as decided by New York food celebrity Anthony Bourdain.

85 Degrees Bakery Cafe Hurstville NSW

There are several outlets of this bakery cafe for several years now in Australia.  Did they coem from the USA?

Each franchised outlet is in a busy area, often in suburbs so-called by a diverse Asian demographic.   The one in Hurstville is rather roomy and lots of baked stuff on its shelves.   The base of Sydney operations is in Chester Hill, a suburb south-west of the Sydney city centre.

Some of the cake creations would be viewed as rather leaning on the East Asian dimension  - Strawberry Angel (with chocolate base and top) and Mango Cheese ( with yoghurt).   However, to counter this perspective, there are also Death by Chocolate, US Cheesecake, Coffee Brulee and Blueberry Marble options.    

The pastries are definitely filled with ingredients more suited to perhaps Anime loving fans and non-mainstream cultures - for example, garlic, pork, tuna, green tea, red bean, shallots, pork floss, coconut, Hokkaido butter cream and Boroh or pineapple buns.   Sung seems to be a variation emphasised…

Penang - Lor Mee

Lor mee is another of those street foods that are not commonly available in Western societies, but are easily found in southern China, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. The dish is iconic of the Teochew Province in China and has been mainly brought to equatorial climes by immigrants over the last few centuries. It combines snippets of ingredients in a thick savoury sauce. Above, the lor mee with roast pork and sliced hard boiled egg accompaniments at the Fong Sheng Cafe, along Lorong Selamat in Georgetown, Penang - the place was introduced by May Wah and Henry Quah.

The cafe harks back to the seventies or eighties - and maybe earlier - what caught my eye were (above) freshly blended fruit and/or vegetable juices and (below) metal and plastic contraptions of the food trade.

Hot and cold drinks are easily on offer from the cafe (above and below) at very reasonable prices.

Another version of the dish (below) taken whilst Bob Lee was enjoying them in another cafe or coffee shop in Georgetown…
