Recipe: Egg Foo Yong (芙蓉蛋)

For as far as I can remember, when we were staying in Kuala Lumpur, each time we ate at Chinese restaurants with my brother-in-law, he will order Egg Foo Yong. Up till today, I’ve always wondered why… But I guess it may be his favourite food.

The ingredients for this dish is so versatile that you can add in ingredients of your choice.  You can either make it into a vegetarian dish by omitting all the meat or you can add in as many of your favourite ingredients to make a nutritious and delicious dish.

Mummy's Kitchen

Hi! My name is Josephine Go. I blog at in a segment called Mummy’s Kitchen. I love to use fresh and natural ingredients in my cooking to promote healthy eating. Some of my recipes may not be in line with the traditional methods of cooking to the extent that some of the ingredients are different, but hopefully new recipes are being created in my style. I certainly hope that what I do will help guide kitchen first-timers on how to cook their first meal as well as further equip kitchen veterans with new recipes. My loving husband and two wonderful children are my best guinea pigs and critics. They have enjoyed (or endured) the food that has been served to them for all these years. Mind you, I did not know how to cook or ever knew that I could cook till I got married. So there is hope for everyone. If I can cook, you can cook. You will not know how good or talented you are until you put your hand in the plough.
