Joanne called me up and invited me to Eric's place for Hokkien Mee. He is cooking it this weekend instead of the usual laksa because he found fresh prawns in the market. I raced up to his place and true Hokkien Mee was served.

Balik Pulau is also known for its Hokkien mee. Always complimenting the more acidic laksa with the sweetness of the prawn broth. Eric's Hokkien mee, is another winner. Packed with ingredients, the broth is sweet and the chilly paste packs a punch.

Going to Eric's place is always a pleasure and a chance to get away from the city's hustle and bustle to the lush mountain greenery. This time, I had the chance to taste durians from Eric's plantation, from the famed Hor Lor to 604. Eric brought for me his "reserved" priced durians and freshly harvested from the nets and not those that have fallen to the ground. The "harvested" durians are smooth and aromatic compared to the fallen fruit which has more watery and "wrinkled" texture (pic2). Eric also makes nutmeg syrup and durian cake on every Wednesdays.

My advice is to call up Eric to confirm if he is cooking Hokkien Mee or Laksa and to order your durians before making the trip there. But most of the time, he is cooking Laksa
