Sweet Potato Fries
  • The power of food as a bonding tool – use it to create a meaningful relationship!

  • “Cooking is not about being the best or most perfect cook, but rather it is about sharing the table with family and friends.” ~ Skye Gyngell

    Restaurants and food reviews reflect my personal taste experience. One man's meat is another man's poison. What I like and dislike may be in conflict with your opinion. To each his own.

    The recipes I provide have been tried, tested and adjusted to my family's preference. On seasoning of food; when in doubt, less is more.

Ministry of Rojak.

Ministry Of Rojak By Abdhus Salam Rojak

We had Penang food for lunch that afternoon and looking around, I was amused by a signboard “Ministry of Rojak”.

I ran out of olive oil but personally, I think butter will do a better job in terms of flavour. I like the caramelised nutty aroma mingled with dill and fresh lemon juice.
