Tag / romaine lettuce

To be honest Fu Yu Yau Mak, or Romaine Lettuce with fermented bean curd, was not a dish I’m familiar with growing up in Penang. Mom never really cooked this in our dinners, and it was only when I moved to Klang Valley for college did I have my first taste of this combination, and I love it ever since.

As it turns out, this is also one of the simplest dishes to prepare, here’s how:
