Lunch At Lan Je Rawang

BEFORE WE LEFT FOR IPOH THE NEXT DAY, we took lunch at Lan Je in Rawang again ... Belinda told us this stall is famous for its steamed talapia fish... according to her, the owner makes sure that the fish is steamed 2 times, first to remove the excess water then steamed again, at the same time, the texture of the fish remains and not overcooked at all. We waited 45 minutes for our lunch to come, started to grumble already..... but when the food was tasted, it was worth waiting for....

The shop was crowded... thank goodness there was this empty table waiting for us...

to while away the time, I took some snapshots...

finally after 45 min, the cuttlefish with big onions arrived...very tasty sauce...

stir fry leafy vegetables (sweet potato leaves)

with the minced ginger and sauce, it was the best so far I have ever tasted...

too bad... Lan Je doesnt know I m advertising for her... the lunch cost us RM50.00
a bit expensive but it is worth it because of the aroma of the dishes....


  1. wow, another outside adventure c: do you always eat out?

  2. no iceah, i dont always eat out unless i go visiting outskirts with my frens or family. Last week, we had a dinner out of town, its 3 hours drive from my home and we stayed overnite in a fren's place. haha... its expensive to eat out all the time...

  3. cuttle fish!! i love 'jiu hu'...but i love sotong even more! yummy yummy...

  4. Hi Reanaclaire, love the pics.
    I used to fish for Tilapia in outskirts of Ipoh ponds and pools, but don't eat them....prefer sea fish, ha ha.
    But love udang galah.....used to fish them at Kuala Selangor, Tanjong Tualang....BIG ones back in the 70s.

    The dishes sure look delicious. Guess Malaysia now holidays for the Raya, huh? Have a nice holiday, Lee.

  5. i like the leafy one and the fish..i love one of the singa yummy..

  6. I like the cuttlefish dish the most

  7. i love fish, but i prefer if the Tilapia had some black bean sauce. but it's such a waste if the fish was really fresh the best way is really steamed simple. i like onions alot ... hope as i advance in age in another 10 years more, it wont make me pass more gas...hehehe

  8. by the way do you love to cook? teach me a little of your good recipes c:

  9. i admire your tenacity for going after good foods, for me, 45 minutes i cabut liao lah. by the way my friend just called me from Ipoh, he told me Lou Wong Gya Choi Kai, was like jammed packed, true ka sister?

  10. yes, true eugene..esp now during holiday season. But after this week, will be quieter... it is always like that during festive season..

  11. Yeah I hv heard about this place - famous for the steamed fish - seems everyone order 1 fish per individual there!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
