Long John Silver's Fish n Chips

WE HAD OUR LUNCH AT LONG JOHN SILVER'S... I was told this fast food outlet originated from The Brits... Oh, do we have this joint here in Malaysia?  I am really not sure... Sounds familiar though ...
It was kind of quiet to my surprise...
It is famous for their Fish n Chips
Their main menu...
Huge portion for me!
The everyday promotion meal ...
And I ordered their famous Cod Fish n Chips...
Very crispy and comes with two Hush Puppies! (Corn balls)
After our meal, we proceeded to the Commissary for our groceries...
The prices here are a bit lower than the regular marts...and I had a great time looking and buying the imported goods...

The Boiling Crab

FOR TONIGHT'S DINNER WE WENT TO THE BOILING CRAB... A restaurant we have been talking about for more than a month now and finally got to go this evening...
Just fifteen minutes away from our house...
We thought we were the early birds... It was only around 5pm...


But the crowd was already there ... Waiting to be seated...
Getting prepared for the food...the table is laid with a white non greasy paper.. and I was told that we were to put the food on top of the table itself ...
Steamed rice...
Fresh fried calamari
Sweet Potatoes is our favourite..
Our food arrived within minutes..
Crayfish...
Fresh prawns ....
There are no plates served.. Everything is eaten and laid just like that on the table.. I don't fancy seeing the dishes served in plastic bags... Don't really understand why they are served like this, I guess it is kind of special to them.. No complaints about the food though, the seafood are very fresh and the total cost came to $41... Well, I guess once is good enough for me :)

Vietnamese Pho In Little Saigon

I LOVE VIETNAMESE PHO... There are many Viet food around the area where I am staying, Little Saigon is one of the regulars I love to go and another place is called Lollicup.. Sounds kind of cute though for Asian food... They tasted good, well, at least to me... So that is oneof the reasons why I don't miss Ipoh food that desperately... Hahahaa....
This is a Special combination... A bit of everthing, chicken, pork, prawns and beef...
I ordered the chicken with flat noodles....
Looks good and tasted great....
Springy wan ton noodles are not bad too! 
It comes with some chunks of duck meat in soup...
Something similar to Ngap Tui Mee!
This is also wanton noodles but on a dry version.....
And of course, beef noodles and tendons are a specialty too....
One can opt for porkie and inards....
And it comes with beef balls too... Oh, better dip the meat i to the hot soup ..
My goodness, Now only I saw the reddish part!
This is served separately....
Little Saigon....
Just look at the Giant Bowl....
That explains why I gained two pounds plus since I arrived!!

Hong Kong Dim Sum In Sacramento

SO FAR I HAD TRIED TWO RESTAURANTS selling Dim Sum...one of them is Hong Kong Islander.. The Dim Su restaurants here open at 10am, unlike the ones in Malaysia whixh open as early as 5am?  

I love the way they organize the crowd over here in Sacramento... We were given a number and then when the table is ready, we would be called in... We do not have to "search" high and low for a table or share table with anyone... Well, I guess this way is better, register purselves at the counter and then wait to be seated...
Ambience is not bad....
And the dim sum are bigger than those in my town....
Beef balls are very common over here....
Another type of dim sum....
Glutinous rice wrapped with lotus leaf...
Part of the food we ordered....
They kept coming....
And here we are...so blessed with good food on a Saturday 
After our tummies were filled, we went on our way to Vacaville ......

It took us more than forty minutes to reach and .... Oh dear, My credit card is going to burst... Ok, I better mot dwell on that....

On a happier note and scene, upon reaching home, I was so delighted to see the Chef in the kitchen laying out all the ingredients and baking trays on the table...
The batter alraedy done up....
And some were lying on the tray waiting to be baked....
I quickly took out my iPad... It is a rare sight after all...
And The Chef in action...
