Yam Yam Seafood Restaurant In Ipoh Garden South

When weekend comes, I will have to start thinking of where to go out for our  Sunday routine dinner with my mom and kids... I remember putting up in my FB that Ipoh is going to reach its limit of food, not much choices anymore and someone commented that I am "spoilt."  Hahahahaa... perhaps I am.. or perhaps Ipoh now is not as "famous" as in those days anymore... maybe all the good cooks have "migrated" to other states....

Coming back to the "spoilt" part, I was so excited when Elin told me there is a shop called Yam Yam in Ipoh Garden South which we never been to before.... Yam Yam.... cute name.. perhaps it should be Yum Yum? :)

I heard from Elin that it is always crowded after 7pm... so to beat the crowd, I went around 6pm.. and our food were served in less than 20 minutes... For the 5 of us, we ordered these dishes below...
steamed clams (lala) with ginger wine...
I would give them a Thumbs up cos the clams were very fresh and were well done..
meaning not tough and overcooked...   :)
the lady boss suggested that we try this chicken which comes with a bowl of sauce..
something like "salted chicken sauce" which suits my taste buds perfectly!
I think the chicken was baked cos it was not very oily...
their signature bean curd... kids will love this...
it was still "sizzling" when served....
I ordered spinach in soup to balance up the meal...
and Andy requested for his favourite dish....
and everyone ate with full satisfaction....
for the 5 dishes, rice and drinks, the bill came to RM72.00..
I think the bill is quite reasonable...
Will certainly go back for more choices....

Address: 9 Lebuh Raya
Ipoh Garden South,
31400 Ipoh.

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

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
