San Francisco Chinatown Lunch

After three days in San Francisco city, I think I have lost some weight! Two reasons... I walked a lot and ate much less than I normally did in Malaysia... LOL..

Everywhere I go, I walk...and walk..blocks after blocks, opening my mouth often to ask about the way... and the latest discovery is Grant Street where the San Francisco Chinatown is...the place where Jackie Chan made a movie here too!

From the hotel where I am staying to Chinatown, it took me around twenty minutes to reach.. a very nice walk in the cooling weather, I have no complaints...
My pictures are not that attractive, I need to say..
Something very different from what others did...
along the Chinatown...
we were actually looking for chinese restaurants..
heard that the Peking duck is famous there...
and we just went into the first restaurant we came upon...
It was quite full when we entered..
but by the time we left, it was almost empty 
except for a few tables not in this picture..
we ordered these.....
and half Peking Duck...
which came with just the crispy skin and small pieces of meat..
oh gosh! surely not enough to feed me?
we chose the pancake to be eaten with the Peking duck
 and these reminded me of capati in Malaysia!
feeling not enough, we ordered these prawn dim sum...
And for the two of us.. the bill came to an astonishing $59usd!
Wow..I was thinking..for this amount of money
I could have a nice feast for some 10 people or more!
LOL....

  8. Now you are eating Chinese food as we know it in America.
    Har gow or Xiā jiǎo (shrimp/prawn dumplings) are my favorite with chili sauce! Here in Honolulu we have many Chinese regional choices plus local Hawaiian-mix style. Hope someday you visit here. Sand Francisco is the best city!

  10. If in Australia, i think it will cost around $40 and the quantity of food will be much more than that. Anyway, like my mum always says, "not many times lah".

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
