|Amazingly wrapped wan ton skin for sale in Kuching|
When I saw the wanton skins all wrapped up and placed so cosily in a bed of plastic in Kuching I wanted to tell the stories of eating wanton in Yunnan to my sisters and mother !
How my thoughts came back to me so vividly!!
Here is the story then......
When you are in a foreign land you might find it a little uneasy to have breakfast in an unfamiliar place...ie. you are out of your comfort zone. But then when you have a few good and kind friends helping you to feel adjusted to the strange ways you are served...you do feel at ease more readily. Hence eating in a little eatery around Nan Hu in Mengzi was a special every day event for us for a few days. And the silky wan ton was really memorable. On the first day we tried to share a bowl between two persons...the next day every one had one small bowl each...and I think by the third day some one ordered two big bowls for himself!!
The shop does not do dry wan ton like in Malaysia.
If and When I go back to Mengzi I will go immediately to the shop and eat a whole big bowl by myself and remember all the good times.
|A big bowl of wan ton Yunnan style is 3.50 RMB. A smaller one costs 2.50 RMB.|
|A spoon of the silky wanton..so soft and memorable. I think it is the good Chinese flour that makes the wan ton skin so good. Or there might be a secret ingredient!!|
Besides these two items the proprietors also make ready packed Tou Foo Milk and Porridge.
Each table could accommodate four persons. So we took a big portion of the free condiments (above we too spring onions and the special chili sauce)
It is true that a good breakfast gives our day a good start and we can work better for our God who has provided so much for us!! So while there we had special blessed Wan Ton Power!!
A simple meal becomes truly a celebration when it is eaten with love.
A big thank you to my friends who always care and share food with such great love!!
