Tempeh

Tempeh is made from fermented soybeans and compressed into a block which sometimes is cut into slices to be used in other dishes.

My lunch - MYR7 - 1. choy sum vege 2. capsicum and carrots 3. Tempeh with cabbage 4. curry chicken

  2. My daughter loves tempeh - would eat that at one ayam penyet place here. Seeing that, the mum went and bought a block of it home - fresh, unfried...and no prize for guessing what happened to it in the end. Hehehehehehe!!!! The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

  4. For me, tempeh is an acquired taste, and needs constant maintenance. I used to hate tempeh until I was in college, that time the gf loves it, so I eat it for a while and then started to like it. Nowadays I cannot tahan that taste again.

    2. It can for me. Same goes for durians. I don't really like durians as a kid, then suddenly I loved it through secondary school and college. Nowadays I can only take 1 or 2 pieces before giving up..

  6. I love tempeh! But the first time I had it, I wasn't too impressed with the taste. But subsequently, I loved it and I still do.
