Brian C's Birthday @ The Red Herring

Peakie D, Brian C and Notti Monkey 

the 3 globe trotters who just got back home to KL. We lurve to travel...sometimes it's work, sometimes it's leisure but most of the time it's work *I think*. Travelling for work ain't fun seriously, but in life u gotta turn lemons into yummy lemonade don't ya? Since we knew that watever it is....we still gotta go and travel bcoz of that particular assignments, why not just go with a happy heart, pick up new languages, meet interesting ppl, taste new food but most of all LEARN. Life is all about learning isn't it? I learn everyday...even in my dreams.

so these 3 friends who love to travel finally got a date to congregate to celebrate Brian C's birthday. Setting dates or a date is mad crazy trust me. It's either has to be extremely in advance or last minute on that week itself. But I am glad we made it :)))

Brian C's new MCM clutch.......*ahem*

yes I lurve to touch and mess and toy around with ppl's properties. But this isn't so me. The size is good as a document or iPad folder. If you have nothing much to store, you could just fold the top down to make this clutch smaller and fits in your hands perfectly.

It's either I was messing around with ppl's properties or ppl's staffs busy at work in the kitchen. Filling meat into the casing with this awesome gadget - I dunno what it's called.

and ta-da!!!!! such cute perfection and it's all homemade with love :)))))

WHAT??? U mean u didn't prepare this dish for us????
Mean Xer got so stressed up with this "client" bcoz I ordered nothing fr the menu and everything off her menu.

Champagne and wines were already chilled and prepared in advance

Started off with a beautiful pork terrine. Everyone was so hungry including the kids, and all gone in seconds. Hahahaha.....We were like piranhas!!!!

Remember those sausages earlier? Now they are ready to be nom nom nom, full of hickory smoke flavours. The bite was crunchy and snap bcoz of the casing, followed by meat!!! REAL MEAT innit!!. Oh Chef Mean Xer, when are u gonna serve breakfast here? This is sooo gonna be wicked with eggs and bacons and coffee!!!!

Now you can order these beautiful pork sausages from The Red Herring. I don't know what's the price but definitely sold by weight. Definitely good to have some stashed away in the freezer and if u are feeling up to it, take them out and grill em baby!!!

we requested this simple grilled sweet pepper pasta again....not in her menu. With some extras added on top....toasted Ikan Terubok eggs on top....this is like the Malaysia version of European Bottarga *mullet egg roe*

Beautiful vegetable terrine with reduced balsamic. So pure, yummy and good texture. Natural goodness from all the vege balanced off with the acid from the dressing. If vege gonna be presented like this on the table, I am sure everyone will have some fiber every single day!!!

Last minute request of Giant Garoupa with homemade tomatoes. Simple yummy wholesomeness, but trust me, when things looked simple, actually it takes the most work, techniques and skills to prepare.

We ordered our pork chop to be charred....beautifully charred. Chef Mean Xer has got a lava rock char-grill stove so any food can be grill to this perfection. Crispy edges and beautiful moist juicy meat on the inside. Yeah usually if u charred it to this way it would have been dry but this wasn't. Need to learn her secrets.

the kids were so happy bcoz it's their kinda food!!!

Cheeses that landed less than 48 hours from London. It looks like there's a lot but everything gone as well.

Thank you to Dr. Epicurean for the cheeses. Nope he's not sleeping in this pic....working on the phone. I don't really know which timezone he's on. He's perpetually working 24/7 inclusive of weekends.

Peakie D and Lynd brought a really limited bottle of Nikka Brandy. We didn't see this when we visited Nikka factory in Japan.

Such a beautiful cake :))))
I wanna learn to bake and decorate like this!!!!

Happy Birthday my dear Brian C :)))) 
May u alwiz be blessed with many many many beautiful adventures and experiences, travels, great eats, wonderful ppl in your life and thank you for your friendship

Group picca.

JS it's not ur birthday, please stand aside!!! kekekekeke. Peakie D said he looked like Iron Chef. But then again the Iron Chef Mean Xer was trying to hide herself.

Thank you so much for accommodating to all my insane request!!! Promise next time I will be a good gal and order from you menu ok?

The Red Herring has officially opened for business. The menu is very focused, which is great so u won't have to worry of wat to order. Muahahahaha. I am now looking forward for her to open for breakfast on weekends.
