Try to make one set menu.. the result very satisfied, feel like you eating at the restaurant.
So, here is the menu... stir fried baby bok choy, Fried Bee Hoon (Vermicelli), Fried duck wing and sambal ulek. For fried duck wing, I'm using All Purpose Marinade "Amoy" brand.
* 4 bunches baby bok choy (basically, 1 bunch per person)
* 1 hand full bean sprout, wash then drain it
* 2 pieces bacon, sliced roughly
* 2 slices ginger
* 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
* 2 tablespoons soy sauce
* 1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
* 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
* 1/4 cup water
* A few drops sesame oil
* 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil for stir-frying
Wash the baby bok choy and drain. Separate the stalks and leaves. Cut the stalk diagonally and cut the leaves across.
Heat wok and add oil. When oil is ready, add ginger, garlic and stir-fry briefly, for about 30 seconds, until the ginger and garlic are aromatic. Add the bacon and stir for 1 or 2 minutes.
Add the bok choy, adding the stalks first, and then the leaves. Add the bean sprout then stir for 1 minute. Stir in the soy sauce, sugar, and salt, and stir-fry on high heat for 1 mdinute.
Add the water, cover the wok and simmer for about 2 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil and serve. Serves 4.
